VPN's

Posted

Been looking at getting a vpn for a while but haven't taken the plunge yet. Is anyone using one and which would you recommend. Been looking at ipvanish and expressvpn. Also been looking at getting a Amazon fire stick as my very old streaming box is, well very old. As with a it of stuff it's a minefield out there but things are pointing to ipvanish. Anyone got any pros and cons for vpn and firestick?

cheers 👍

Rather than pay for a potentially dubious VPN, check out the Tor browser.

It’s free, it’s legitimate, and it works.

Obviously, make sure you have a good read first and see if it’s for you.

Just been reading this and still a bit unsure with it all to be honest.

Hmm... A VPN promotion site that earns affiliate commission on VPN sales recommending that you use a VPN with a browser that they state is "very effective at hiding your location and preventing your traffic from being tracked. It’s almost impossible for your online activity to be traced through Tor’s network back to you."

Say no more!

I'm still on a learning curve with all this and as I said it's a minefield out there for those of us unsure about these things. I'll keep reading the tor site to get an idea. Is it any good with streaming devices or mainly protecting our identity for online business?

cheers

I use it to stay anonymous and prevent tracking when browsing on my iMac. On my iPad and iPhone, I have Disconnect’s Privacy Pro (https://disconnect.me), which provides tracker protection and uses a VPN.
