Do you really trust product reviews that are circulating on the internet? Below we will talk about a specific product: A virtual private network (VPN) allows you to bypass censorship, geological restrictions, hide your IP and protect your privacy when browsing the web.
If you want to keep your business private, you are probably already using a VPN or looking for the perfect VPN. Of course there are several VPN service providers, and of course there are thousands of reviews that are supposed to offer you the best service.
Can you trust the VPN reviews circulating on the internet?
A review can save you time and give you a lot of information to help you make a decision.
So a VPN review can influence your decision.
But think about whether the review you are reading is correct and not fake. Each service has a different name, unique features and pricing, so we could assume they are separate services.
However, some companies have many VPN services or even VPN evaluation pages.
There are websites that review only VPNs and share offers.
This creates positive effects on the web, which helps a lot in sales. The rating pages seem to help a lot in this, especially when the company has them. They invest heavily in making reviews that seem plausible while favoring their own VPN services over others.
These companies often change their names, and to name a few, Kape Technologies has CyberGhost, Private Internet Access and ZenMate. In addition, they have the rating websites VPNMentor.com and Wizcase.com to promote their products.
Domains can of course change as soon as they are revealed.
Therefore, you can not always trust review pages. But what about real journalists? Let's look at an example:
Many digital versions belong to the same company that has a VPN service.
For example, the news pages IGN, Mashable and PCMag are some of the larger publications owned by J2 Global, the same company behind IPVanish, StrongVPN and some other VPN services.
Is it really hard to find true reviews online?

No matter what a review says, you should always do some research or choose one that offers a trial period before making a final decision. If a VPN service offers a money back guarantee, you can check it out and then decide to continue or get your money back. However, beware some companies will try to get away with this.
