  1. But VPN are costly to use and most of them are taking are logs. I don't think so VPN is a right way to connect to internet

  2. See in the blog I'm not suggesting any VPN because I know the VPN services as well.. but VPN is the secure way to connect to internet because it provide an end to end encryption. You can make your own VPN by Raspberry Pi and can use it. By VPN I didn't meant any application. Making and using your own VPN is good and it is free to make it..
