VPN SERVICES VS : NONE
When it comes to a good VPN service we have several choices
After having used several VPN s on three different continents – with mixed results mostly – our findings pinpoint to one in particular VPN service that remains stable even under tough internet restrictions.
I would not recommend one VPN in aprticular but try the TOR browser.
One service has been tested under hardest conditions. ( Especially when using the Hongkong vpn we noticed frequent blockage by Authorities ).
Due to a smart configuration the ip address is being changed frequently so that the VPN virtual private network tunnel remains open.
You can also smartly switch to other countries, ( U.S., Germany, France, Netherlands, South Africa, Japan, Singapore, etc. )
During our stay in the mainland it was the only way we could access our cloud servers ( as everything concerning Google, and Facebook remained blocked. )
Secure layer encryption is a must today, so your traffic can’t be intercepted – well except those who have access to the VPN.
In certain countries – without mentioning names due to privacy reasons – it remains a necessity.
See you soon.
ADS TARGETERS PULL YOUR LOG IN DATA
Ad targeters are pulling data from your browser s password manager
Alarming trend shows how users are being targeted
For those who are less tech savvy – as well as those who are familiar with technology – we should give praise to those guys, girls and researchers residing in prestigious varsities in the country.
Princeton University s researchers are such a bunch. It is mostly those Professors who get to the bottom of issues concerning our online security .
One such security issue is the one below explained.
Most web browser now come with a password manager tool, a lightweight version of the same service offered by plugins like Last Pass and 1 Password.
Do you have sufficient confidence to entrust an unknown company with our passwords ? Why should I give out my passwords to someone to store it for me when I can do the same easy and without the huge security risk.
INTUITION IS POSSIBLY THE STRONGEST FACTOR TO KEEP YOU AWAY FROM DANGER
( LEARNED THAT YEARS AGO )
According to new research from Princeton s Center for Information Technology Policy, those password managers are being exploited ( here it goes ) as a way to track users from site to site. Scripts are being used to extract data.
TAKE THIS FOR STARTERS
The scripts work by injecting invisible login forms in the background of the web page and scooping up whatever the browsers auto fill into the available slots.
The information received can then be used as a persistent ID to track users from page to page, a potentially valuable tool in targeting advertising.
