    So, do you? I got a good deal on one and I have an account, but VPN services drain on Android like crazy.

    I have never used a VPN service for personal use (phones, laptops, Chromebook, etc.). For work, yes. But not for personal use.

    I use a VPN on my laptop with few issues. I like the piece of mind.

    I do almost no banking/financial transactions on my phone (and delete the app after doing so). So I don't use a VPN, and with unlimited data almost never connect my phone to wifi.

    My VPN also allows free install on my phone (up to 5 devices), but I've not tried it.

    Yes. It helps prevent unauthorized access to online information.
