Lifehacker is a well respected website. Don't let the name cause apprehension. VPN is legal.

Using any of the VPNs mentioned in the article should cause you no worry as regards malware or viruses.

I suggest you read the article.

A "life hack" is some method or technique for enhancing your life - that's the derivation of the site name:

I read the articles. So VPN got either paid or free, i think i will stick to free one but something im still not understand very clearly

In order to use VPN, we just need to download and open the software right?? Or we must buy somewhat streamyx type thing/monitor/machines to use the VPN software??

You should not have to purchase any additional hardware. Installation procedures for any of the VPNs should be somewhat similar.

 

Like you, I would consider going free at first, get a bit of experience under my belt, & later perhaps switching over to a paid service.

I'm unable to answer that question without some basic research. Checking with the various offerings should provide you an answer. Otherwise Google may be your best bet.
