What are online privacy matters that I should worry about?




You should worry about the fact that your ISP and any hacker at a router or WiFi/HotSpot has access to your personal data while it’s in transit over the internet.

Your identity and physical location can be easily determined by your IP Address. IP Addresses can be used by a hacker to attack your PC or to steal your personal data when it travels over the Internet. By continually stealing bits of data from your IP Address over time, a hacker can build your entire digital signature and offline persona and commit ID fraud. Furthermore, your ISP is logging and caching all the data that your computer is sending and receiving over the Internet. That data is then stored (often indefinitely) and can be used to identify you personally as the source of a questionable or prohibited online activity (downloading movies, playing poker, streaming adult content).

To make sure this doesn’t happen, use VPN4ALL. With VPN4ALL, routers that connect you to the internet don’t cache your information and any server you visit on the Internet doesn’t log or cache your personal data. VPN4ALL makes sure that your online activities remain private and that you can connect with confidence.
