@tdemin well... as much as I hate Apple, for some threat models iPhone is more secure and privacy-preserving than Android... at least from what I've heard.
@Wolf480pl wasn't really thinking of Apple at the moment of posting. I mean, using a VPN is hardly a big thing about privacy and is definitely not enough by itself.
@tdemin again, depends on your threat model.
But yeah, the person seems to naively think that VPN is a magic bullet.
