I posted a negative (but not scathing) rating of NordVPN last week on VPNMentor's site. I even used an accessible legit email address.
Was my review/rating published? Nope. Only positive reviews were posted since my submssion on VPNMentors site regarding NordVPN. The site indicates that "legitimate" reviews would be screened and published within 48 hours.
Yeah but do they keep customer records? I have a totally anonymous bitcoin VPN bought over tor with no personal information. VPNMe. Although, VPNMe has gotten slower over the last couple of years.
They do no logging whatsoever, and connections for everybody are shared and randomized over like 100 public IP's.
Frankly, I wouldn't put them as my first choice, because a quick search of "leon juranic" has the second image result for me a picture of this certificate, and no others like it, so it's not like he's certified himself to give out specifically certificates like these.
A search for reviews of the VPN only lead to sites that give them meh reviews and are owned by Kape Technologies like VPNMentor, who conveniently push their own VPNs on every review page in the bottom left.
I trust ONLY independent VPN review sites, which put NordVPN at the top for now, citing and . Full disclosure, I currently have a PIA subscription now that I started a while back which I will let expire because of their shady practices.
Also NordVPN ist trotzdem ziemlich sicher und hatte nichtmal ansatzweise derartige Datenlecks wie hier. Sagt auch VPNMentor, die hier im Artikel aufgrund ihrer Folgerecherche erwähnt werden
This is very upsetting to hear. I know that there's often a crackdown on VPNs but when you realize it's the one thing that people have to be able to browse freely it becomes surreal. Last time I went there I got both NordVPN and Astrill just in case any one of them gets blocked, but now I found a good VPNMentor's article about the ones still working after the crackdown. And yes, it is a cat and mouse game
