    I take this guy and his reviews with a big grain of salt. He’s always ranting about VPNs being “shady” on his site and on reddit - so no surprises there.

    But he accuses PP of using “out-of-date tls cipher names in the server configs” and I was wondering if PP staff has a response to this accusation. The rest of his review is mostly a rant with nothing meaningful.

    reviews are always subjective.
    i can only recommend to try it yourself and make your point of view.
    there's always cheaper providers out there, there are always other claiming to provide best service, full speed, total anonymity etc. so at the end it's up to you what to choose.

    i've been now a happy PP user for almost 1.5 years

    We contacted this person various times. He is not interested in updating or correcting his review.

    The reason we support deprecated ciphers is because we support the new OpenVPN 2.4 feature "cipher negotiation" where the client can actually choose the cipher. The deprecated ciphers in there to support legacy equipment: Certain routers still use old OpenVPN versions and cannot be updated easily. To keep them working, we still support deprecated ciphers.
