    How worth it is to have one installed?

    That really depends on how you use your computer and how important it is, to you, to hide your IP Address.
    Also there are three similar services with different levels of security and costs.
    VPN
    TOR
    Proxy​
    I have VPN but I don't use it with this forum. I use it to get around the delays between free downloads at the various hosting services. I can also use more than one computer to simultaneously download from the same host by giving each a different IP Address.

    Very, but also understand that if you use VPN for illegal activities, you potentially can be hit with international charges as well as local ones.

    I always use one, I have to to get on the Forum anyway with my country's current internet policies. It's always been worth it for me but it does depend what kind you get as some are differently priced due to different standards.

    I use TOR if i am wanting additional security, and it seems to work well.

    Ditto. The question should be: "Who's foolish enough not to use a VPN?"
