It’s usually recommended to use OpenVPN as it is compatible with all platforms and gives optimal level of security and it is set by default on the application. However, users are free to switch between protocols in a heartbeat.
On the other hand, SaferVPN doesn’t keep logs of your traffic as it is stated on their website, however, they keep some records of some of your session data such as: your original IP address, the IP addresses you have chosen, and your bandwidth. So, they’re not quite solid when it comes to privacy.
