Time for a VPN

April 10, 2017

Last week, Congress voted to overturn FCC privacy rules that limited how Internet service providers can profit from our data.  Once President Trump signs the resolution, ISPs will be able to:

  • Sell our browsing history
  • Share our searches with third parties
  • Use malicious ads to monitor all online traffic
  • Track all non-encrypted traffic
  • Install spyware on smartphones that can even defeat HTTPS
