Got a call from one of Larry Hannigan's readers yesterday re installation of Proton VPN.
Apparently he clicked on the first thing that came up when he put the address in his search engine, ended up installing something called "Express VPN" which cost him $99.00, and to add insult to injury it was so complicated he couldn't get it to work.
Back in the good old days if you typed the URL of a site into your search engine that's where it took you. However these days the search engines accept money to skew the results, with paid advertisers taking precedence over the site you are seeking. Consequently you may have to scroll down through the results a bit to find the correct site.
Make sure you have the correct site before you download and install anything. Not only is Proton the simplest and easiest to install and use, it is also the only one I know of that offers a free option. However, be warned. The site does try to sell you a more complex version that you don't need, you have to dig through the options a bit to find the freebie version. Any probs feel free to contact me.
