    Like to get some views from experts here about ProXPN.

    I signed up for basic free account
    * Limited to United States IPs (UK and Netherlands require proXPN Premium)
    * Bandwidth limited to 300kbps
    * Does NOT work on iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Mobile, or Blackberry

    I've read allegations that it's a federal honeypot which collects data out of your computer. The first time I ran it, I got strange incoming tcp request from IP 83.xxx.xxx.xxx and I blocked it via my firewall.

    Also, is there a way to HTTPS all websites we visit via program or plugin?

    Welcome all comments. Thanks.

    Try HTTPS Everywhere. TOR's partner.

    It forces HTTPS on many sites (not all) but you can edit the config too.

    Can you provide the links that say it's a Honeypot ?

    ProXPN rouses my suspicion. Even as basic user, out of the 19 times I connect/disconnect, all are different IPs. Its convenient pool of resources and generosity sound like Google in the early days.

    But it's better than nothing. Still useful for some sites.
