Sometimes I need to use Internet from cybercafes or restaurants. I'm concerned about the security when accessing critical sites such as my bank, Paypal or just my Facebook.
Besides the typical security measures (such as antivirus) I'm considering to use a VPN connection to avoid man-in-the-middle attacks and honeypots.
Among all the free VPN services I've decided to try VPNbook.
Is it safe to use VPNbook or similar sites? Or they can sell my data or even hack my bank account? Only paid services are safe?. or not even them?
Do you have any other advise to avoid this problems?
