Your VPN may leave holes for access, according to CNET…and they say take care with ones from Five Eyes countries!

CNET compared Android VPNs to determine which only require critical permissions,and which others put privacy at risk by making unnecessary requests. CNET editors considered Surfshark, ExpressVPN, NorvidVPN, and IPVanish best in class, and identified a number of others as dangerous to privacy. Further, CNET editors warn that Five Eyes (US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand)-based VPNs can come with backdoor access to data.
