    OK, so this is one key reason why we don't want VPN services in browsers. These were bugs in browser extensions!

    VPNmentor praises HSS for their quick response, but given how elementary & silly the vuln is, I won't. It's not a bug which can occur even in a code written by experts. I, less than so called script kiddy, can understand the bug and it's really ridiculous, reflecting how much they care about user privacy. These 3 have already been in my VPN black list, but it reassured my listing.
