Internet users from UK are hit with very controversial news quite often. In theory UK should be one of Western examples of freedom, freedom of speech and lack of any censorship imposed on its citizens…. but that is theory. Reality is unfortunately quite different. Continue reading

Internet censorship is rising in Russia

censorshipWhen we wrote about citizens rights and censorship in the recent months our main news were coming from USA and UK. Thanks to Mr. Snowden, we know that countries claiming to be free and democratic were (and are) spying on there own citizens and everyone else. How ever, there is one more country that claims it is ruled by democracy and freedom – Russia. But is it really?  Continue reading

More privacy with VPN and secure mail

Secure mail with VPNAs you all know in recent weeks there was quite a lot of noise regarding PRISM. Thanks to Mr Snowden we all know that biggest internet companies have been very “open” where it comes to user data. Beside other implications it is worth to know that NSA had (and probably still has) very easy access to most popular e-mail services. There is one guy however who can help with that. Continue reading

Piracy Browser + VPN make a great tandem

Privacy BrowserIran, North Korea, United Kingdom, Holland, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Ireland. Do you know what all those countries have in common? Strong censorship of the Internet (in first two cases much bigger than in the rest) where torrents and file exchange is concerned and complete ban on The Pirate Bay access. TPB thought it is not right and came up with browser that should help you with that (if you live in one of above mentioned countries). With good VPN they should make an interesting combination.  Continue reading

VPN in UK is a “must have”!

NSA USWe believe that most of you have heard by now about PRISM, Mr Edward Snowden and National Security Agency in US. In our last post in regard of VPN in UK we were wondering if UK users should consider such feature as a must have. Right now we are convinced that it is a fact.  Continue reading

Just today a story hit the news pages (read more at The Washington Post or Guardian UK) that might be shocking to you. Somehow it just confirms what we have been suspecting for quite some time. We are all spied on!  Continue reading

BankIf you thought that future is still to come – meaning VPN is something you do not need, we got some bad news for you. We have come across quite disturbing news form one of Polish blogs (link to source below). It says about plans of one of big Polish banks regarding their customers, data and Internet. We have no doubts that all of worlds biggest corporations are working on such systems and in some cases they are already working for them.   Continue reading

Internet communicators – who is listening to you?

fbi skypeWho of us is not using Internet Communicators today? Google Talk, Skype (that will replace MS Messenger) and probably soon Facebook. This is all super but… in case of your phone authorities do need a court order to setup “wire tap”. How about such communicators? Court? In your country or where servers are… or maybe court order is not needed? Maybe systems like “ECHELON” do listen to anything and everything they can get access to?    Continue reading

Attention: p2p & torrent users be aware!

First of all let us congratulate to al those of you who are smart enough to use torrent or p2p networks only via our VPN servers. As you know not all countries have such a decent policy as to allow their citizens do download freely files of the net. Especially if you are from USA, UK or France you should really think twice before you hit “DOWNLOAD” button if you surf under your own IP.

Soon, no anonymity in Denmark?

Internet anonymityEvery time we see distressing news we do try to point them out to you and show you, that your privacy is something worth to be considered about. The recent article from Electronista brings the news about latest initiative from Danish police force. In short it calls for complete lack of anonymity and privacy when access to the internet is considered.

We would like to emphasize on what the above mentioned article pointed out, as it is true in almost any country in the world. When you use internet in public places without submitting any of your personal details it can be considered fairly secure (but only where being anonymous is in question). It has other security disadvantages so we urge you to be very careful when accessing web sites with sensitive information about you (this is where hideipvpn might help sometimes – > access to the internet via public free hotspot – we will write a post about this shortly). Every ISP has all your details and has a complete knowledge of you internet activities. Are you 100% certain that if those data were ever stolen you will be safe? That no crook, will try to use this knowledge against you? Most of the time you can read about some high profile hacks, especially where credit card numbers are involved. Continue reading
