Privacy at home too?

Privacy at home and on the Internet (Photo by Gail Albert Halaban)
Privacy at home and on the Internet (Photo by Gail Albert Halaban)

The advantage of VPN- Service is not “anonymity”, but the “privacy” that you preserve with it.

Home curtains provide privacy.

As at home with the windows where you can close the curtains, the address of the apartment building is publicly accessible. The difference is that you are no longer exposed to prying eyes and strangers. This has nothing to do with illegal acts, it is a basic need and right of every person to have control over what others can learn from you in their private life.

A VPN creates privacy on the Internet.

As in my previous example, I would like to ask you to consider whether you would also agree to cameras at home that watch you 24 hours a day during all your activities? Imagine if this would not immediately change your behavior. The “data storage” should do exactly that, they record all your activities 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, no matter how personal they are. In contrast to your Facebook activities, you have no choice whether you want to release these activities or not!

Guide to VPNs

If you have never heard of VPNs heard, that's not a problem. We are here to introduce you to it and explain how it works. Wikipedia articles do a good job of course, but I tried to find even simpler and less technical words for them.

A VPN-Server can be directly at the VPN- Connect the location and not only hide your identity, it also lets you appear on the Internet as if you were in this location yourself.

Been about 10 years and still are VPNs Original server in a company, the employees can connect to it directly and thus also work from home or on the go and thus directly access the company's internal networks. Today are VPNIt's often a way to hide your identity ONLINE- The past few months, with the Edward Snowden revelations, have also been very important. Before were VPN`s usually also interesting for people who lived in countries that have severe restrictions and officially carried out surveillance, such as: China or Turkey.

Encryption of the data

Through the encrypted connections with VPN it was possible to establish connections directly through the firewalls of the states and thus also access content outside the country unhindered. Today we know that US citizens, Britain, France and finally even Germany also monitor citizens and record user activity. Therefore, people from all over the world use it today to protect privacy and avoid surveillance.

During a VPN Money costs, on average it is about 5-10 USD per month, there are also providers who offer their services completely overpriced. But there are also real “bargains” and those who pay a lot do not always get more. It is important to check whether the service contains the services that are expected and whether the operators have taken precautions Guarantee privacy or even anonymity. Does the operator save log files (records of activities) or not? User activities could be when you are online, what you do on the Internet or who you communicate with. that is why I have been particularly careful with this point and my test reports.

My IP address - is my phone number!

All computers that are connected to the Internet have a unique address by which they can be identified, the so-called "IP address". This is a number code that is either permanently assigned to a computer (as is the case with many cable companies, for example) or assigned dynamically by the Internet provider / provider. Whenever a user does something on the Internet (e.g. chatting, writing an e-mail, visiting a website), the IP address of the respective computer is saved by the web servers on the Internet in a log file or additionally in the "header" of the E -Mail immortalized.

So you leave traces when you move around the Internet!

  • These traces cannot always be immediately assigned to a specific person, but they can be linked to each other - for example if the police receive an advertisement - and then lead to the identity of the corresponding user. It works like a puzzle.
  • With VPN-Services trying to prevent just that!

Privacy & anonymity on the PC

But “anonymity should never be used to do what is forbidden. As in real life, theft, fraud, etc. is simply not "socially acceptable" and therefore prohibited by various laws. You should always take this into account on the Internet and behave accordingly. Because:

Anonymity on the Internet is NOT a “free pass” for planned crimes!

Offline security is also important!

Other users of the same computer can also sometimes see which websites their predecessors have visited or which programs they have accessed.

  • With a little technical expertise, a lot can be found out about others.
  • Of course, there are tools to defend yourself against this kind of snooping. However, these tools are often complicated and do not provide 100% security.
  • If someone has enough data (log files, nicknames, passwords, etc.) available, he / she can usually put a stop to the smartest Internet users.
  • Because at some point everyone makes a mistake.

Many questions have been put to me so far:

  • Is Cyberghost VPN for sure?
  • Can one with PureVPN be anonymous on the internet?
  • Is VyprVPN really anonymous?
  • How to Surf Anonymously on the Internet?
  • Is there VPN free?
  • And many more can be found on this page answered ...

My experiences with VPNproviders;

My experiences and the test series should help you find the right one VPN-Select service that meets your needs. I have now checked over 100 providers, so I have a pretty good idea of ​​what the differences between the individual providers are.

In the coming days I will publish a lot more product tests and also experience reports on this page. But all reports can also be evaluated by yourself. You can simply share your experience directly below the test pages with a comment and also evaluate the product in question according to the specified criteria. You will help others get a good overview.

If you have any further questions, I am happy to answer them myself, just comment, I read them regularly and always answer immediately!
