CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR ONLINE PRIVACY? YOU ARE AT THE RIGHT PLACE!

VPN IN ALL IT'S GLORY!

Last night I was using my facebook account for some random browsing and news about how our world is once again closer to the World War III (sigh!). and suddenly there was a prompt dialog window on my computer screen. Baam! and my first reaction was what most of us are expected to have, what the hell is this. The dialog box asked me for where have I been after eating my dinner at a local (but nice!) cafe. I first tackled it as a normal yet irritating dialog box asking about my personal life as if I am the one paying them my monthly rent!

The Capturing of my Mind... 

That thing captured my attention that although Facebook is pretty secure (pun intended), will I know the next time when some web-service/site access my location without me knowing at that particular point in time? (knowing that a site has accessed my location after it has done so would do no help in preventing that in the first place!).
That way a hacker or even a big Tech-Giant can know where I am heading, when I will be reaching somewhere and all that stuff. Think about it, If a hacker would capture all that information by making an app that is 'another new social app'; what evil can he do to you and your kids and your friends and family! They can just kidnap anyone and/or make amounts of money on that. 
Or someone (who is jealous of you) can delete all of your digital identity thus making you digitally non-existent (Believe me, this is far more worse than just getting kidnapped or even getting beaten up for money!)

So what can we do in this brief moment of digital-existential crisis?

Well.. The answer is easy. Use a VPN.
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. As the name tells, VPN secures your online identity to an appreciable extent. It basically transports your digital location to a different place that you are in.
Take it this way, Suppose you are a living in London and accessing internet from there. now if someone (probably a hacker) were to sneak-peak on your digital identity and capture your location, he/she would see the location to be London (from where you actually accessing internet from).
Now if you use VPN and set your location to let's say, Frankfurt (which is in Germany); the hacker would then see that you are accessing the internet from Frankfurt and not from London.

  That's Great! How can I use this 'VPN'?

There are two types of VPN services; 
  1. Free VPN services
  2. Paid VPN services
And you can already guess which one is the best one though it does never ever mean that the other one is just useless. Paid VPN services bill you on a monthly Basis while the free ones don't. Though I am not a very big fan of Paid VPN services (especially those ones which are very cheap). This is not a way to say that the Paid ones are all bad but the ones which are very popular are the best. And when you are doing really sensitive work online or giving information about some CIA or FBI level crap, you need to care about your online hideout.

So what VPN should I use?

 There are some VPN which have proved to be one of the best ones, here is the list to all of em'

(Notice: None of these VPN providers are connected to me in any way. I therefore neither endorse them or support one or all of them in any way. These are just what I found helpful from my experiment on VPN providers. These are not affiliate links, just normal web page links.) 
  1. Express VPN
  2. Nord VPN
  3. ProtonVPN
  4. Hide my ass VPN
  5. Cyber Ghost VPN
  6. IP Vanish VPN
So this the list of all the VPN I found great while personally using them. Be aware that these do not have any affiliate/normal links with them as I am currently not their affiliate and I will update this post as soon as I get unique links so you guys at some special events get really good discounts and offers!

Unfortunately, this is all I have got time for today, but hang tight as I will be back tomorrow with some helpful tech-tips.
And yeah, 
Stay strong.
