Unfortunately, no, as one "green" is not equal to another. I suggest using the guide, formulas, and filtering the detailed chart to fit your use case.

ProtonMail makes its free VPN service available to everyone by http404 in technology

[–]ThatOnePrivacyGuy 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago

I'm not as immediately skeptical, if you look at it, it's free but very limited, it's also stated (and feasible) that it's paid for by their premium subscribers.

What trend in the gaming industry would you like to reverse? by ChillyHellion in gaming

[–]ThatOnePrivacyGuy 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago

DLC (specifically micro transactions and removing core components - maps, weapons, characters to sell later separately), DRM, platform exclusivity, proprietary dev kits (Nvidia fx, etc), franchises beaten to death, tryhards in press conferences, separate demo versions of a game with better textures the devs never intend to release.

I could go on and on...

I think the first suggestion should be, "try".

Why is Archive.is blocking vpn services? by GumbyTM in VPN

[–]ThatOnePrivacyGuy 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago

There's a chance someone using the same service (and thus the same shared IP from your exit node) attacked the site or tried something seedy and they instituted a blanked ban on the whole range.

What is the best VPN service? What's most important when I choose one? by dellcos in technology

[–]ThatOnePrivacyGuy 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago

Logs are only half the story. The crux of the argument is influence. If a service lies in a country that can be easily influenced by a state actor performing unlawful surveillance, logs or no logs, they can be influenced to secretly start keeping them or even just monitor (real time data collection for immediate or short term use) as opposed to logging (storing of data for long term use and record-keeping).

If you are being targeted specifically by such a country, it likely will not matter where you are located.

Jurisdiction has to do with unlawful surveillance. If you don't want to be spied on, you have a better chance avoiding it when using a service based somewhere that doesn't have such deals with the country you live in.

Note that if a state level actor is targeting you specifically, its very unlikely this will make a difference in the long run.

You should contribute, we'd love to have you there! (It's pretty new and competing with an established sub that is a little too fast and loose with affiliate advertising)

That's something I don't track intentionally. If I did, Netflix could use my research against their users, sadly.

Lots of wrong answers here. The correct answer is - it depends on your needs and threat model.
