Brahim, when it comes to VPN ( privacy, upload/download server performance, browser data search retention policy, targeted advertising) then the adage "If you don't pay for the VPN product, you are the product" is worth highlighting. This is not to say your instructions won't work, or to say that VPNBook is good or bad, just saying that the tutorial does not advise readers if any potential downsides to using a "free" VPN.
