Here’s how to protect yourself.
People aren’t just turning to encrypted networks and secure chat apps in fear of government surveillance — they’re doing it to keep their networks from being hacked.
Did you know more than 50% of people use the same password for every site? Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket.
Your privacy is important, so before you visit a new site, make sure it’s encrypted. Your ISP already has enough dirt on you — you don’t want to give them more.
When you connect to a VPN, your network traffic is automatically sent through an encrypted tunnel. Your ISP can’t track you, and you’re able to unblock sites and services that may not be available in your area.
New legislation is suspected to be the first of many attempts to “free up” internet restrictions and make it easier for ISPs to sell your data to advertisers.
