Death of the Internet (US)

34 posts in this topic

Ok, so lets say I want to become more security conscious and protect my privacy, but I'm a total noob when it comes to stuff like Linux or using a VPN. How do i get started? Where do i look for unbiased  information? Is there a good guide you recommend or a website I should be looking at?

I'm in NA, but I've only ever used windows, commercial ISPs and commercial browsers. I know something about computers, enough to download software and install it. I manage to connect to private WoW servers. 

What's my next step to begin protecting my privacy?

As far as browsing if you are worried you can download and use opera when browsing. It has a built in vpn and ad blocker. It is basically the same as any other and you can import your bookmarks. I have been using it for a while now (before the whole your data can be sold). There are a few vpns out there if you want to go that route. Here is a good link for info and how to setup things up  http://www.iflscience.com/technology/how-to-set-up-a-vpn-after-congress-voted-to-sell-your-online-data/

@Kuthela For browsing I use Tor https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en + additional vpn such as FreeLan https://www.freelan.org/. Its a little tricky to set it right, so if you have no previous experience, I would suggest something more user friendly, such as cyber ghost (http://www.cyberghostvpn.com/en) or private tunnel (https://www.privatetunnel.com/home/) - both are free, although you will only get limited services, so if you want full functionality, you will need to pay a few bucks...

Im not an IT profi. But I have a small understanding of how databases works. The worst case is double or false data - and thats the point where I Personally settle down - I don't believe anybody is following activly my browser history - there must be 1 human kind to follow me alone... and I am not the only person in the www....  - I even  dont know a company that would be big enough to follow EVERYBODY on earth... and even if... it must be the sadest job on this planet... 

as long ppl dont implantate chips in my skin i am pretty much fine. I have so many Internet Identities that it would take 2 years for some1 to understand the connections. Oh I use WLan? I dont care vpn...

way better adblocker. Works for spotify web player too, means you get no ads. :D 

Thanks! It seems to also work on the sites that detect adblock plus and ask you to disable it and youtube videos are also loading half a second faster now. :D

Plus, adblock plus apparently started to enter partnerships with some companies to show their ads. Now what's the point in that.

Being a corporate sell-out is the new black.
