I should have listened to my own advice sooner, a while back I installed a program called Hola VPN to help me get on to a site that was blocked by GDPR, it was a free Chrome extension and I’ve since uninstalled it until it popped up today in my menu bar.
Because when you agree to use the free version you agree to have part of your computer used by others online at any given moment, which gives rise to the chance that someone could do something illegal online via your computer. A very unlikely scenario but still not ok to be able to download it without having a page explaining that.
Doubly annoying because I’d seemingly uninstalled it without it being a problem only to have it pop up again. Alas, it was free and I ended up paying for it, nothing bad has come from it but still, always read the fine print.
