New Internet Privacy Repeal Makes VPN Usage More Important Than Ever

Share

Unless you’ve been under a rock with no WiFi, you’re well aware that Congress and President Trump have opened up your browsing history to the highest bidder. Under changes to FCC rules signed by President Trump last week, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will no longer need your approval to sell information about where you’ve been and what you’ve been doing online.

Alarming, yes…impossible to get around, not so much. The first step to protecting your online data is limiting your browsing to HTTPS-protected sites, as indicated by the green lock in your address bar. Especially when entering passwords or credit card information, you should be extremely cognizant of this. Unfortunately, HTTPS can only go so far in protecting you, and you have little control over which websites employ it.

While your ISP won’t see the ways in which you interact with an HTTPS website, it will see which websites you visit in the first place. By enlisting the services of a Virtual Private Network (VPN), all your actions on the web will stay completely anonymous in the eyes of your ISP thanks to military-grade encryption. It’s never been more important to have the resources of a trusted VPN provider on your side. Thankfully, quality VPNs are neither difficult to set up nor overly pricey. Here are three worthy options:

VPN Unlimited: Lifetime Subscription ($39, 92% off)

One of the most respected names in the VPN game, VPN Unlimited offers full protection while surfing the web, with server locations in 39 countries around the world. With unlimited bandwidth and lightning fast connection speeds, it’s no wonder that VPN Unlimited earns top marks from trusted sites like TechRadar and VPN Service Providers, as well as the Top VPN of 2016 honor from the venerable PC Mag.

Windscribe VPN: Lifetime Pro Subscription ($79, 91% off)

When is a VPN not a VPN? When it’s a heck of a lot more…which definitely describes the package of services available through Windscribe. While Windscribe cloaks your web traffic and secures your personal info from hackers or snoops like the standard VPN, Windscribe also comes with a full suite of computer privacy tools like anti-tracking apps, an ad blocker, secure link generators, firewall protection and more.

VPNSecure: Lifetime Subscription ($39, 91% off)

If you’re as annoyed as the rest of us when you can’t watch a certain video or steam due to geo-blocking restrictions, VPNSecure has you covered in that respect in addition to performing the encryption duties of a solid VPN. Thanks to their Smart DNS feature, you can bypass those regional boundaries and watch your Netflix, Hulu and other favorite services anywhere in the world. VPNSecure is a well-respected choice that will mask your IP address, encrypt your traffic and keep absolutely no logs of anything you do on the web.

    I think people are still not fully aware of the repercussions of this internet privacy repeal, as I was quite sure about what’s going to happen when I read an article about Trump signing the repeal and I substantiated the fact that this Government is surely going downhill and these decisions would do nothing but harm in long term.

    I am using Traceless vpn for quite some time now and it is working great, so I can recommend that one. Also comes with free trial, which is handy for testing it firstly.

      Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

    Luckily I have a VPN – Ivacy, since I don’t want the Government to be able to see my online activity!
