I have MS system 10 because MS 11 is a storage hog.  I am a happy camper though.

Which is the fasted port to aim for with Webroot VPN. I am in Canada and use it all the time (I’m happy with it).  While living in the Middle East I used Houston, TX as my VPN port.

Hello @oildoc 

 

Very interesting question and I never thought about it! You can use any sever that is listed in Webroot’s VPN. I searched Google and found this.

 

Can a VPN Be Hacked?

 

Our Verdict

VPN services can be hacked, but it’s extremely difficult to do so. Most premium VPNs use OpenVPN or WireGuard protocols in combination with AES or ChaCha encryption – a combination almost impossible to decrypt using brute force attacks. Using a VPN doesn't prevent you being hacked entirely, but it reduces the risk significantly.

I use IVPN and it works awesome on all of my devices! But like above they can be hacked but a very low chance.
