How VPN Works? 1,484 Views

VPN ShieldVPN protects your privacy by creating a secure tunnel across the Internet between you and your Internet destination. This tunnel is created by first authenticating your device (a PC, tablet, or smartphone) with a VPN server. The server, which you can run yourself with programs such as OpenVPN, then uses one of several encryption protocols to make sure that everything sent between you and websites and Internet services can't be monitored. It does this by creating an encrypted tunnel, which is like putting a package into a box and then sending it to someone. Nobody can see what it's inside the box until it's opened or decrypted.

How to Protect Your Personal Information Online 1,264 Views

Protect Personal InformationSurfing the Internet used to be one of the last bastions of privacy and security. After all, since you didn’t have to get dressed, get in your car, and drive anywhere to shop or meet new people, you could build any kind of profile you wanted for yourself. You could have any name and be any person you wanted to be (theoretically) and nobody would be able to uncover your identity if you didn’t want them to have it. But unfortunately, things have changed. Today, most people tend to be naïve and unaware of the many different ways that their personal information may be stored online. They’re even less likely to know how both companies and individuals gain access to this data.

Is Hotel WiFi Secure? 1,087 Views

Hotel WiFiWhen you check in to a hotel, you assume that the company will keep you and your valuables safe by not sharing your room keys and providing a safe for your belongings. But a much greater threat could be lurking in your rented room, the free WiFi connection that most lodging providers offer. We’ve already talked about the steps you should take when connecting to public WiFi networks in coffee shops, but many people still fail to apply these basic safeguards to hotel Internet browsing. This is a huge mistake! Hotel WiFi networks suffer from many of the same security weaknesses as unsecured coffee shop networks. Not only do these networks increase your susceptibility to “man in the middle” type attacks that compromise your personal information, the FBI and the US Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) report that instances of malicious software attacks on hotel-connected laptops are on the rise.

Best Tor Alternatives 1,040 Views

Tor AlternativesTor or “The Onion Router” is a piece of software that allows people to browse the internet using an anonymous connection. Internet traffic is directed through a series of relays (over seven thousand available currently), and at each relay, the data is encrypted and decrypted so that no relay or node will know the location of the previous or next relay the data is being sent to. This method of layering (like the layers of an onion), provides a great level of anonymity and is the main reason why Tor is widely used. But it has some drawbacks, and due to these drawbacks, there are other alternatives available that provide anonymous browsing in a similar way to the Tor Network.

How to Unblock YouTube 966 Views

Unblock YouTubeYou could use a proxy to access blocked sites such as YouTube, but you'll be trading privacy and security for that freedom: While a proxy allows you to visit blocked sites, all of the information you type in can be tracked and stored by the proxy owner.

A VPN gives you unrestricted access to the YouTube videos you want to watch, and a VPN doesn't keep any personal data or track any of your online activity. With a VPN, your digital footprints disappear.
