Does your VPN have open-source apps? Here’s why you should care

What’s the most important factor when you’re judging a VPN? Speed, reliability, that it unblocks every streaming platform in the world? Maybe, but don’t forget the apps. However it scores elsewhere, if the apps are short on features or difficult to use, that’ll still trash your experience.

VPN providers understand this very well, and that’s why most of them guard their apps closely. They keep them in-house, they’re not used by other providers, and they’re closed source – you can’t see the source code.
