If it’s an encrypted and anonymous VPN that you’re looking for, then you should use a secured VPN like Hola’s premium (paid) VPN.
To keep a totally secure connection requires not only to choose the right VPN, but also to use it the right way.
In his article to TechCrunch “WTF is a VPN?”, Romain Dillet wrote that “No, a VPN doesn’t mean that you’ll be more secure on the internet. It depends on the VPN server.” with the following explanation: “When you use a VPN to change your country, avoid censorship or protect your connection in a coffee shop, the VPN server at the other end can see all your network traffic. You’re just moving the risk down the VPN tunnel, and it can be quite dangerous if you’re not careful enough.” This means that using a private VPN helps to keep your privacy only when you use a secure internet connection as well.

Use the IPs that originate from data-centers (aka ‘static IPs’) to anonymously access web resources with long and stable sessions and fast connections.
Use the IPs of real people, from any location in the world and with a device of your choice. The sessions are shorter than with data-center IPs, but your identity is that of a real user and you can rest assure that the data you get is accurate.
