Re: fun question

Using FreeSSL or any other CA doesn’t expose your private key, so encryption is unaffected.

Where your choice of CA matters is around trust - will the CA issue a certificate to a third party that allows the third party to impersonate you? HSTS/certificate pinning helps to address this.
