    If you trust the VPN provider and it has good reviews. Login to personnel accounts does allow law to know what IP you are using and know you are using a banned site. VPNs hide IP addresse, but login can defeat purpose of hiding yourself.

    It depends. Many Asian VPN providers have proven to be untrustworthy, especially those out of China and Hong Kong. Beware. Plus, if you ever login to the same sites without a VPN, you've just blown your privacy. https://blog.jdpfu.com/2011/08/21/re...ask-about-vpns

    BTW, in some parts of India, my tech blog has been blocked, but other sites running on the same host/IP aren't blocked. Clearly, they are doing DNS blocking, not IP blocking. Hopefully, you can access that blog link above.

    What about the free VPN on Opera? Is it safe?

    Very few of the many free VPNs(think only one or two) would have any trust, they cost money to run so money needs to be made somehow. Your data is usually the only way for them to make money. They might be okay to watch youtube video that is only allow in the States and not where you are.
