From what I see the old "Any encryption written by humans can be decrypted by ...."
Here's my problem with VPNs. They overstate how secure they are and don't reveal that government programs are very interested in the traffic and appear to already have cracked the code.
Even if you disagree, what happened with LavaBit means your traffic is monitored at all levels.
In today's world of increased threats to security and individual privacy, using a VPN is more crucial than ever.
However, they can be a bit confusing. What do they do, and how does a VPN work? How is it different from the VPN I use when I work from home? What does it cost?
The team at AVG and Avast have put together a very detailed but easy-to-follow guide on some of these key points. Learn how a VPN can help you!
