Can I use a free VPN to get a German IP address?
Although there are plenty of free VPNs and “free proxies” out there, it’s worth considering how these providers can afford to offer their service at no charge. If a free VPN or free proxy service is malicious, there are many ways for it to monetize your internet traffic, including logging and selling your browser history, injecting targeted ads and spam into your browser, or even recording usernames and passwords.
To ensure a fast, private, and secure connection for every customer, ExpressVPN pays for a network of high-performance server locations in 94 countries. Skilled developers and designers optimize ExpressVPN’s apps and create privacy-related features such as Threat Manager.

Data retention laws in Germany
The current data retention laws in Germany require telecom and internet providers to store user data for several weeks. Providers are required to share user data with authorities upon "justified request." Examples of collected data include:
Location data when calling from a mobile phone
Location data when using mobile internet (WhatsApp, Skype, etc.)
Length, timing, and phone numbers of your calls
Content and timing of your SMS messages
IP addresses from participants in mobile communications
Historically, German and European policymakers have tried to introduce more invasive data retention laws. They have been blocked by their respective Courts of Justice due to privacy concerns. The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has now ruled that EU citizens' traffic and location data may not be stored without cause, paving the way for new regulations in Germany.
