Increased concerns over data privacy have led to more companies investing in VPNs in recent years. Unfortunately, some of these networks fail to actually protect corporate data from outside sources, according to a new report from The Best VPN.
Of the 74 VPNs analyzed in the report, 16 were leaking data. DNS leaks, WebRTC and IP leaks, and Chrome extension leaks were the most common, the report found.
“VPNs leak for a variety of reasons,” the report stated. “DNS server issues and WebRTC API conflicts can cause your true location to shine through. The problem is that these often strike when you least expect it.”
