What happened?


After all, to log onto your VPN even through Tor you have to use your credentials, which means that, even though for your VPN, the tunnel is coming from a Tor exit node, they know it is you. PureVPn is not a good choice. DeepDotWeb July 9, at 4: To put it briefly i got pinched a little while back due to a minor glitch in my own opsec that i paid dearly for. Actually there are laws coming to Canada to forbid usage of VPN or proxy services altogether. While hosting your own vps would block your home IP which is usually protected by the ISP anyway , they can track the IP of the vps directly to you.

Announcements


I decided to go for PIA since there were some good references on the internet. I signed up firstly for a monthly package since I wanted to be sure that service provided fulfilled my expectations.

Neither having an incompetent online chat support which does not even know the kind of support they offer or instead solving issues request customers to send an E-Mail to customer support. Keeping new customers happy is not so difficult. Just invest some additional time to help them get their VPN running and that it!

Mullvad is by far at the top. You can just mail them cash with an account number you can create with them using no personal info.. Bitcoin is not untracable for those who do not know. They also have a txt log file which is left on your own PC detailing every connection made, times dates etc etc. Using it one year. Connections are stable with any server.

Many servers they have all around the world. Not sure about logging. Have seen one review indicate they keep 72 hours log. Speed wise no probs. Community OpenVPN client to be used. Hard to do initial configuration.

Not for average user. Any way I would recommend it to advanced users. I do not use anything other than basic internet activity over OpevVPN. Support looks like good. No much issues to call support. Apart from bypassing the restrictions on the internet VPN is all about security and privacy of your internet connection. I used to use FrootVPN. I was trying sptflux but none of my downloads would download. I am used to downloading at kb max speed.

Their service was great though. Could anyone give their two cents on how this reads? On the suggestion of my nephew I decided to try a VPN. I just started using 1 month hide. After reading the comment about using a seedbox. I realized I am in WAY over my head. At best, paying via Bitcoin only adds an extra step.

Last year we had joined spotflux, paid for a year subscription and used for a while the service less than months , until it stopped service and we had never been able to get service anymore. More interestingly, recently I had seen they charged me on my credit card, without any notice or confirmation 30 USD! I didt get any of the services, morever I am charged for no service. I strongly criticise, how can they save my credit card details on their system and how can they deduct any amount they desire not feeling any need to ask confirmation?

I want them to return back the amount to my credit card and cancel my membership. I got on in ipad and gmail sent me a letter saying someone was logging in from such and such address that address was my accurate IP address and not the rerouted airvpn address. It is a point that no one has mentioned yet. If you use a vpn to connect to a service that you have used in clear gmail etc then you have blown your privacy for that session. Each of these services also keeps logs and if you connect to your email and log in you are now tying the 2 IP addresses together and that is not even mentioning the people who know you in RL that also appear in your email list who will certainly be susceptible to rubber hose decription techniques.

Other places this might also be a problem are things like windows or even linux updates. Whats the full legal stats on them? Nice article here…I decided to drop my hma to Nordvpn after reading this article but it seems they have few servers available in France. And their servers have been blocked by few sites I was trying to connect to. Support service is very good though..

SO here come another question: My boyfriend is angry because I am on the line with my ex, Bill and my skype is ringing cuz David Wil. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: And the angel said unto them, Fear not: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Torguard seems to have gone downhill the past few weeks with unable to connect and statesbility issues with just about every server, my friends had simular issues.

So currently with vpn. Has anyone used SurfEasy before. I am using it but it does not work like it used to. I have not been able to access website using Surfeasy VPN for months now. It does not seem to be able to resolve host address. Funny thing, problem started as soon as I purchased the 1 year subscription! I am glad I read this, also their privacy policy contradicts itself in different statements on the same page.

That means, except for the limited exceptions below, we do not collect any information transmitted through our network. More specifically, we do not collect any information regarding the websites you visit or the IP addresses assigned to you when you access the SurfEasy Private Network, and with respect to our VPN service, we do not collect any data stored on or transmitted from your device, including any data that applications on your device may transmit through our network.

This usage data may include such information as the date and time of your login and the IP addresses you visited. This information is used to fulfill your purchase and to bill you as necessary based on your service plan. We may collect and disclose personal information, including your usage data, to governmental authorities or agencies, including law enforcement agencies, at their request or pursuant to a court order, subpoena or other legal process, if there is a good faith belief that such collection or disclosure is required by law.

What process do we have to help us the client to acquire knowledge of such event happening behind our back…is in it a form of wiretapping??? It is a federal LAW!!

Whether you choose to believe that or not is up to you. So regardless of comments above e. Most of you need to realize that if you use a VPN you are going to experience a loss in internet speed. You are going to be limited to the speed of the server you connect with, and your ping times with that. It takes time to bounce your connection around…. IHMO — Just stay away. During trial period was all ok. Well, continuous disconnections, torrent client disconnecting after 1 or 2 ours, and bandwidth that peaks very rarely to a reasonable speed.

I sadly suspect that this is for most if not all VPN servers. Actually, I agree with the last part of core title: I trialled it a few days ago. I got DNS leaks from just touching the client with my mouse. SKIBBZ, I really hope your not suggesting privatepipe, the permissions list alone scares the hell out of me, location, stick broad casts, photos? I would not recommend NordVPN. Trying to connect is worse odds than flipping a coin. Constantly dropping connections when trying to connect even after turning off my windows defender…I just started using them in October and I am stuck with their unreliable service until next October.

I am definitely not renewing.. Have to agree with you there. Always having problems with connecting and poor speeds with NordVPN. They require you to give your email, create a username and password before you can pay for their service and there is no cash payment option provided. Geees, just use an encrypted email like safe-mail. It is so funny that all are thinking when they do not log that they are safe.

The VPN services are hiding a lot and the main part is the storing logs so guys beware of that as well. One more thing I liked about Airvpn is the fact they provide quick support via their forums. I previously was using PIA and their support totally sucked. AirVPN do not log IPs, they simply and correctly mention that a server would need to know your IP address whilst you are connected to it. Incidentally, you can connect to AirVPN using Tor if you wish, they even tell you how and configure their systems to make it work correctly.

Have never had issues with Hotspot Shield but do they actually store logs of visited websites? I have heard they store logs of IP addresses…. Cryptostorm has done this. Not really good for anonymity. Hungary great service, dependable, avg speeds however they have since removed Bitcoin payment was always a PITA to get to work decently anyways was my fav until this.

Romania solid service, however their malware and adblocking reeks of network interference and could be a cause for concern, lots of abuse via free service. Sweden Zero Information needed for signup, avg speeds but tiny server choices and sometimes difficult to connect to any server.

Italy good solid service, needs a few more countries added to the list however, seems very privacy oriented, takes a stand against ICANN, Verisign, etc. Just signed up to test it, however on the receipt after signing up, noticed Corporate headquarters are U. S based service no? Newshosting one of the best Newsreaders out there, now has a VPN as well.

They say they keep no logs. Pick a vpn in a big country hostile to your government. Even if they keep logs they wont cooperate just to fuck with your country. Very useful article, thank you. For example, here vpn test https: They also do not collect when you use their service, or how much data you use.

It will just reaffirm my statement. Digital Ocean has a few tutorials on how to do this. A VM with MB of memory is sufficient. You should take extra precautions to harden the server. You never know if a publicly shared wifi is running a proxy that captures everything that passes by. Hi i am new to VPN,s people say do not use Google Chrome if you want to stay anonymous on the internet, my question is if you are using a VPN, why would you not be anonymous?

Nordvpn has been great. Avoid HMA absolutely worst, tech support is a joke and if a company needs good techs its them cause their programmers put out crappy beta versions as bullet-proof. It seems unlikely because businesses routinely use VPN for security. According to the Edward Snowden documents, accessing Tor and Tails are more likely to flag you on the intelligence agencies systems.

I use an anonymous VPN for general security in the same way people have an alarm on their house. In terms of anonymous VPN providers, I have tried a few. I have used TorGuard and found the customer service excellent, and altogether a first class service. Yes it is and very trusted. It comes with the Tor install package from the official sites. It allows bridging through Amazon etc. Trusting your life to a no logs VPN service it is like gambling with your life in the Russian roulette.

But i tend to stick to servers closer to home, when downloading torrents. There is no free trial, you put up, or shut up. Joe Bloggs over here likes to buy abit of old skool handrubbed charas, from the Himalayan foothills, or some head buzzy maroc or leb sativas looking like chocolate cake, and smelling of. My love is for the people that actually do many of these things, outta sheer will to spread the love. I learnt that on the old weed forums. I was growing bck in the s for 8yrs, had 2 4.

And a variety of smaller veg areas, and propergation areas. It took me so long to build up all that equipment, that when my ex missus grassed me up after i left her, i not only lost 1 of the flower tents, ripened like a plant only something like the pyschodiesel cutting could, FFA 1 of my all time top puffs, C.

Gold x Lowryder, Seni NL 5. The proper deal, i was lucky enough to score a Q of when i was back swapping cuttings and seeds, learning tricks and tips on how to dial in a grow, then give each plant a seperate feeding schedule because some would eat the flies off shit.

They had me bang to rights. I used the top of the range rhino filters, accoustic ducting. You want those sides sucking in a little, so you know there are no leaks. And remember, yahoo, biung, google. Yahoo are fukiun bitch fraggle grassing cunts, and all the big social media shit is. They dont want you to have any control. They dnt wnt you have cryptocurrency because they cant manipulate and corrupt for profit this currency.

My final alltime smojke is the cali orange bud cut i had sent from a guy on one of them forums. So the forums are where the real security is at, especially with a vpn and pgp added ontop. Now which way are they? Regardless of what the companies say, if enough resources are thrown at the problem and the law comes looking for you, they can find you.

It takes only one slip and VPN is merely a small piece of the puzzle. Pick a VPN provider with a good reputation and with servers which they own themselves. Access ONLY those servers. The darker you go, the harder the going gets, mostly in terms of your own usage comfort. What do you guys think of PureVPN? Thats what ive been using for almost 2 years and works great but i just want to make sure its not logging any info.

What I knew is that it really lags. I only had it for three months including a free trial. My experience was not great so I switched to Astrill. I tried their free trial first and it works fine so I decided to get their service and it is okay. Hotspot Shield is a pretty lame choice. They have been around for years now and I can pretty rely on them.

Me and my friends are using Astrill works like a charm. And I agree with you about this article. VPN services are nothing compared to a multi-billion facility. Should the client-side do something sketchy, then something like structured analysis would occur and problems occur. Everyone this is computer science knowledge. This whole anonymous VPN aspect is basically the black market. So you go to the black market to buy that one item…however the government is aware of this black market and if they want to investigate you- they are going to find you.

I would say that their encryptions are fairly formidable and safe for everyone to use, so the paid services are good for private chats or something innocent. If you want to have private chats or restricted websites that are blocked like facebook or youtube, then go for it. I mean if you think about it everyone is using vpn and no one will be constantly looking at your computer or tcp gonna be tracked..

But their encryption is legit so use it! A no-logs policy would mean data would not be there when the authorities come to collect it. After reading all the comments and queries, i have came to a decision that we all must use VPN for our own safety. Previously the security thread was the hackers and dark web users. But now the government is interested in tracking us.

Not only the US but also Australian government. I am using ivacy vpn for 11 months. It your financial and personal security in the end and you are responsible for it. Make a wise decision by choosing the write VPN. PS i you find some thing cheap plz let me know.. Have tunnel bear aswel buT data ran out. Well everyone here if you answer it would be greatly appreciated. I no how to be anonymous on my computer but not on my phone. It does not matter.

Use a mixture of protocols, methods and from several providers. Use anonymous payments where possible. You can make it VERY hard to be tracked.

All traffic from all customers is routed through that. If it is caught, multiple datasets from multiple IPs and you cant make heads or tails of where exactly it came from. Use cascaded servers if you want to be more secure and preferably from different operators or via different multiple accounts. Use anonymous proxies aswell before hitting TOR. Remember your operating environment. Prevent all the logging on Windows, page files etc etc.

So long as your not a real slime, nothing too much to worry about. Most of us wont need all this security. A modest setup would suffice. But yes you can really beef it up. Even multiple virtual windows, more vpn accounts. End of the day, you could have say 20 VPN connections all at once from 5 providers. This all being run on both normal and virtual environments.

SSH also used at both. Proxys used to connect into TOR. Becomes so difficult to be monitored effectively. I have used PureVPN for a while, and there was huge problem with some servers Hungary and Germany that was to slowe or even offline.

Have changed to residentialinternetaccess. Thay have more exit nodes and are not blacklisted as VPN provider on gambling sites. F-secure Freedom, buy from shop with cash, no need to register. F-secure Safe to use on your computer, there should be no backdoor.

I would chosoe protonvpn over all of those mentioned above. I believe everything swiss based is better, and i have great experience with them… also their email service is awesome ;. There are so many new providers in the game and the older ones have updated many things or made fatal mistakes that placed them at the bottom by now. I use it for couple of weeks new. Cannot really complain about it. In general I am quite happy about it.

Speeds are quite stable, as still not many people are using it. Plus you can connect it to unlimited number of devices, so all my devices are secure now ; If someone is interested to try my good buddy shared discount code with me: Hopefully you gonna like it.

You can try Surf Shark. They are quite new so the speed is quite decent. Your email address will not be published. But not all VPN services are created equal. To be considered as a privacy focused VPN provider the service must have the following qualifications: Does NOT log any information that could be used to identify the user.

Requires minimal personal information to sign up. Choosing a VPN service, and which country it is based in, is up to you, but we do not want to discourage people from supporting small businesses in the US based on hearsay Anyone concerned with their privacy for any reason should consider one of the following VPN services.

I can an do USE it from my Iphone. Anonymous April 14, at 3: Dave April 15, at What about Netshade for mac. The speeds are bad. Recommending this service to anybody is not only wrong, it's unethical and warrants, at the very least, a few down votes.

I might have been a little over enthusiastic about the service at the time I wrote this, but I would still recommend it. For slow connections in general, I don't think a VPN is a very pleasant experience. This may also have something to do with where in the world you are located. I'm in a big European city, and can choose from almost any of the European servers with good results. And lastly, I still only have the one experience with their customer service, but I got my reply within a very short time although to be fair, the connection setup for VPN on iPhone was probably pre written.

I have a mbps link and am curious how much of it I'll be able to utilize. My connection is a lot slower then yours. Just measured now, and I get 28mbps down and 18 up on the closest server, about 23 down and 17 up on a server a bit further away. The best speeds I have gotten on the VPN is a little more than 50mbps, but that was still on a slower connection than yours, so I really cannot speak to that.

If you're curious I would encourage you to try it, they offer is a free day trial of the pro account. One more thing, if speed is an issue: I'm in central Europe, so i se a much higher speed decrease on mobile than on desktop, but on 4G I still really dont notice it on the day to day stuff.

I've been using ProXPN for almost 2 years without issue. It's still adequate to stream video, which I use it for quite a bit NFL games , in high quality. And for that, I'm generally connected to an end-point overseas in Europe.

When I connect to an end-point in the US it's very fast and reliable. Haven't had any reason to contact customer service personally.

I will when my current premium subscription is up because I also purchased the lifetime deal, but still had 6 months to go on my annual subscription. So I currently have 2 subscriptions, ha.
