Do VPNs Actually Protect Your Privacy?

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are one of the tools most mentioned in the context of modern privacy on the web. While there are many uses for VPNs, there are a growing number of providers who advertise privacy preserving VPNs. For example, NordVPN’s website advertises, “Enjoy secure and private access to the Internet with NordVPN, encrypt your online activity to protect your private data from hackers or snoopy advertisers.”
