Protect Yourself from the Dramatic Rise in Online Snooping

Snoops. They’re everywhere online – much more than ever due to the last year’s rise in censorship, persecution, and cancel culture.

  • Advertisers want to know your browsing habits, purchasing history, interests, hobbies, political leanings, education, income, etc. etc.
  • Political interests want to know how you’ve voted in the past and all about your affiliations
  • The intelligence community wants to know *everything* about *everything* about you.
  • Insurance companies want to know about your health, especially pre-existing conditions
  • Creditors want to know all about your credit, debts, income, defaults, bank accounts, investments, ad naseum

It’s time to start protecting yourself from all the intrusions. A virtual private network (VPN) gives you online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public internet connection. VPNs mask your internet protocol (IP) address so your online actions are virtually untraceable. Most important, VPN services establish secure and encrypted connections to provide greater privacy than even a secured Wi-Fi hotspot. 

If you turn to free VPNs (Virtual Private Network) services, it can compound the problems. They often are the ones who:

  • Sell your data to advertisers
  • Expose you to malware
  • Steal and sell your bandwidth, and
  • Spam you with annoying ads

Enter my preference – the “industrial strength” VPN option: StrongVPN and its WireGuard technology. It provides:

  • Maximum encryption security
  • Increased browsing performance
  • Less use of your computer’s CPU resources
  • Availability across all platforms

Here’s an illustration of the differences in not using vs. using StrongVPN:

StrongVPN features include:

  • Apps for iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and more (that means it’s compatible with whatever system you use)
  • 950+ servers in 35 countries and 59 cities to distribute their users’ traffic
  • 59,500 VPN IPs 
  • Up to 12 simultaneous connections
  • WireGuard®, L2TP,SSTP,OpenVPN, IPSec, and IKEv2 protocols (I don’t understand all that either, but it’s all good based on my experience with using it)
  • Zero Logging (that means they don’t store your browsing history)
  • No speed limits (it doesn’t slow you down like many VPNs)

Right now, StrongVPN is offering the following promotion to new customers;

  • Period: June 17-28
  • Offer: 68% off all plans + 250GB of SugarSync Cloud Storage and StrongDNS

I “strongly” suggest you use a VPN, and you can’t do better than StrongVPN.
