Does PrivadoVPN utilize the PPTP and L2TP protocol?

No.

 

  • PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) is a tunneling protocol that is known to contain many vulnerabilities. We recommend avoiding it as it is now considered obsolete. https://www.schneier.com/academic/pptp/faq.html
  • L2TP (Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol) is a tunneling protocol that could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to cause an affected device to reload. This results in a denial of service condition and we recommend avoiding this protocol. https://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2017-3857
