Safety concerns to use free software

I am concerned about how safe is it to use the free software? The best would be to buy the paid version. This serves two purposes. One is better user experience for teachers & students and other is that it will be safe to use

Madam,

May I know what do you mean by Free and Paid version? You mean to say Proprietary LMS and Open Source LMS?
Please read the documentation about Moodle security.

Moodle is Free and Open-source software which needs an environment to host it. We need to buy hosting set up or have it in campus.

There are free Moodle set up given by Gnomio ( have ads in the site, which is disturbing) and Qbnox with some limitations.
