Who Needs a VPN?
If you are one of those people who just doesn’t worry about your online privacy, perhaps because you feel you’ve not done anything online you need to worry about, please, take a moment and ask yourself a few questions:
Am I comfortable with my entire search engine history being recorded?
Am I comfortable with my entire search engine history being used by marketers to send me information?
Am I comfortable with my locations I’ve queried being recorded and being available?
Am I comfortable with every online transaction I’ve made, whether paid or not, being recorded and kept?
Am I comfortable that “big data” companies who scour the internet to build profiles on users have my best interest in mind?
If thinking about the above doesn’t have you questioning how you can keep your private internet activity just that– private– then you should probably do one more thing before dismissing the idea of using a VPN service.
Here it is: visit google.com/history. Go ahead and log in. Look at everything that has been recorded about your activity. Then imagine a court order, or a job offer, or an informed nosy spouse or significant other demanding you do just what you did– log in to your search history on earth’s biggest search engine and share it.
