Virtual Private Network Apps

Internet surveillance has come under the spotlight in recent years, with a renewed interest from users in ensuring their privacy is ironclad. One of the biggest pieces of the puzzle is your Internet Service Provider. If they log your webpage access history and sell it to advertising firms, for example, many would consider that a serious breach in privacy. That’s where Virtual Private Networks can come in.

VPNs allow you to create a secure connection to a remote computer in a private network, meaning that your Internet usage will be private between you and the computer or service you are remotely connected to. With free and open source solutions such as Tor and OpenVPN, there has never been a better time to take advantage of the privacy and security that VPNs provide.
