    StrongVPN review: A good VPN service for rookies
    The newly overhauled StrongVPN is very easy to use and is a great choice for users new to VPN services.

    Generally, I don't trust VPN reviews. Pay-for-placement is just too common. Maybe PCWorld is above all that, but how would I know?

    But there's this from https://thatoneprivacysite.net/2017/08/13/strongvpn-review/
    But I see that they have a Bitcoin payment option, so perhaps this is now inaccurate. They might request more information for account activation. Please let us know :)

    StrongVPN are total jerks. I tested their signup to see what information they wanted, and now they're spamming the email address that I used. That is bloody rude. I've never seen that before, and I've checked out lots of VPN services that way.

    a long-time player in the industry, one of the pioneers but a sucky one since day 1.

    This is not something that I would use. It sounds insecure and very intrusive. The trouble with these VPNs is that they are counter productive when they want to profile you and glean personal information, openly or covertly . It's absurd.
