What is a VPN and why do I need it?
Typically, when you go to a website on your internet service provider, they redirect you to any websites through your ISP server. This means that they (and easily others) can see and log everything you do online. Everything! Even your ‘private webpage’. They may even hand your browsing history over to advertisers, government agencies, and other third parties. A ‘VPN’ redirects your internet traffic through a specially configured remote server. This way, the VPN hides your IP address and encrypts all the data you send or receive. The encrypted data looks like gibberish to anyone who intercepts it — it is impossible to read. Today most of the world’s best VPN providers offer you total privacy for about $5 – $9 dollars a month. I pay about $8 and that covers 2 iPhones, 2 computers and my smart TVs. Google the info on VPNs, read up on it … I think the future looks grim for privacy … do all you can to protect yourself. It’ll get a lot worse!
