Used to work without issue and now unfortunately cannot connect at all. Updating certificate when prompted doesn't actually update, just sends into a loading loop with no resolution. Shows key icon in upper notification bar while in loading loop and prevents any connectivity at all. Will wait up to 20 minutes, still no connection. Haven't been able to connect at all for several months now.

Riseup VPN & Proton VPN are the 2 VPN services I know that's actually FREE and the performance is very decent. Though Riseup VPN is a little better as it feels a little faster, plus there's no limit to how many devices you can connect. I'm glad their app is still supported on my Windows 8.0 PC and older Android devices, it's hard to find free VPN platform still compatible. Someday if I have money, I would gladly donate. I'm tired of my data being collected/tracked. Very glad Riseup VPN exists.

Seems trustworthy, a few times I had some problems and needed to turn off some additional features, or uninstall smd reinstall... there was a security certificate that was expiring sometimes that a reinstall seemed to fix as well. I mostly used it as a general VPN rather than for potentially important activist activities that might sometimes need more security. It seems like a great option for low income people who may have a need.
