DIY Internet Security: Setting Up a VPN

Your DGB for today is to set up a VPN (virtual private network), which will allow you to browse the web more securely. This will make it harder for your internet service provider (ISP) to snoop on your activities and make a buck off your data.

Earlier this month, a bill was signed into law that overturned an FCC rule designed to protect consumers’ privacy on the internet. By making it legal for your ISP to gather and sell your browsing history, this bill serves no purpose other than to line the pockets of big corporations.  So we have to make it harder for them to gather that information.

When the government puts the profit margins of a few big companies ahead of the rights of the people, we’ve got to channel our best Mr. Robot impression and keep Evilcorp from profiting from our lost privacy.
