VPNs have a solid use case, though of course cannot provide the anonymity of the Tor Browser. The article actually does a pretty good job of laying out the pros and cons of each, so it’s a little disappointing that the title is so click-baity and oversimplifying.

Right now, I would use VPN only to access to my work network. Not as a paid service.
