    Now that you have a solution as a basis for comparison, do consider an alternative method of solving your problem - a travel router.
    This is one - TPLink TL-WR902AC
    A router will let you set up a secure network of your own to achieve the security you want for your file transfers and will free those file transfers from dependence on third-party infrastructure such as public wifi hotspots.
    This might not be a VPN solution but it is a PN solution.

    The router will also, incidentally, then be available as a go-between when you want to connect to a public wifi hotspot for internet access. Networks hidden behind routers are said to be much better protected against hacking than a directly-connected computer.

    You'll have to pay for the router so it does not meet your 'free' criterion but
    - It will only be a single charge not a subscription
    - Your router will not attempt to sell your data to other people

    Thanks Denis!
    Looking into this. A one-time purchase investment is fine by me.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    PS your link refers for some reason to the TP-Link AC750, most likely due to typical often found chaos with Amazon listings.

    My TPlink Archer A7 has OpenVPN. It works flawlessly. ITS FREE. lol

    You can buy an Archer A7 for $40 on amazon. If your cheap ass can't afford 40 bucks then IDK
    Thanks for the info. Will look into it.
    I'm not a cheap ass and I'm always willing to make an purchase/investment into something that's sound and solid without integrated and planned obsoletion!

    Rob,

    Actually, this one's down to TL themselves. They call it the AC750 yet its model designation is TL-WR902AC.
