    Lounge is probably not the right place, but couldnt find any better section.

    Check top 4 results for "uk vpn" in google.com. All sites look almost the same and offer free & fast vpn (actually tried one of them).
    When I cant find the business model I start to get suspicious, and this is the case. Why would 4 top websites offer a free service?

    Cheers,

    Data mining? Paid service in the future? Who knows.

    Paid service in the future crossed my mind. However, it seems weird that 4 top SERP sites are not monetized yet.
    May be cookie stuffing? Personal data stealth?
