Installing VPN client on a PC or mobile requires full administration privileges. That's the nature of the VPN software that it requires access to low level networking so admin rights are needed. Most VPN services provide their own proprietary software. Installing powerful and opaque software is a potential danger because the user cannot be sure what the software is actually doing, what deliberate or unintended security holes, backdoors or vulnerabilities contains. It means that the user has to trust the VPN service not only with the data it transmits but also with giving the full access to the user's device.

Fruho program on the other hand is completely transparent and opensource, so the code can be reviewed by developers and security experts, so the user can be sure it does not do evil things.

It also hides the complexities and idiosyncracies of individual VPN service programs, and gives the user a unified facade for accessing multiple VPN services.

Thanks a lot !
So far I was using my own script to connect to my vpn provider but Fruho definitely makes it easier to swap between servers.
Happy new year & cheers !
