Vietnam is not known for having strict censorship or data activity tracking mechanism. Although the country is not known for restrictions compared to countries like China or Pakistan, few of the western contents are blocked in the country. Government and the Internet Service Providers block these contents saying that, they would want to prevent politically instigating contents in the country. Political unrest in countries such as Libya, Egypt etc. has forced the Government to take this action. [click to continue…]

Last week we talked about how the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has finally made a move to support net neutrality. Of course there is still a small group of detractors who stand to lose a great deal if broadband providers are classified under Title II of the Telecommunications Act and regulated accordingly. The opposition is loudly shouting that net neutrality will kill free enterprise and stifle innovation. Opposition representatives are also falsely representing to achieve personal aims.

Australian Data Retention Spurs VPN Use

by Mike on August 19, 2014

in News

The Australian government is looking into data retention policies for Internet users. This has sparked renewed interest in the top privacy VPN services. Australians have used recognized VPNs like ExpressVPN for years for content access. But this is the first big surge in popular interest in VPNs for data privacy.

Australian Data Retention

The federal government of Australia says that it wants to retain Internet user data for two years. The plan was announced last week by George Brandis, their Attorney-General. The Australian people were surprised to hear about this move. The plan is to require telecoms to record and retain browsing metadata for a period of two years.

After the announcement, the Australian people turned to privacy tools to protect their Internet data. VPNs are the best tools for the job, and Australians are already familiar with them. VPNs have been used by Australians for some time now because of the content access issues they have. Now there is new meaning for these tools that afford them strong privacy protections. Aside from VPNs, there is also a marked increase in lookups and signups for browser-based privacy tools.

The surge in VPN use has been compared to the peaks that service providers have detected during times of website blocks in countries like Turkey and Pakistan. Clearly, Australians are as concerned about protecting their Internet metadata as citizens of other countries are about website censorship. It is, in short, a big deal.

What is surprising about the data retention plan is that the government knows about the popularity of VPN use. Malcolm Turnbull, Australia’s Communications Minister, announced at the Brisbane GovHack awards that browsing history is a private matter, but that everyone has a VPN anyway, so it’s not a problem. It seemed that Turnbull was saying that VPNs are such common tools for preventing IP address detection that the new law wouldn’t hurt anyone.

ExpressVPN Versus Tor Anonymity

by Mike on August 12, 2014

in News

The Tor network has been used for many people for many years. It was even recently recommended by Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who showed us all about NSA spying activities. But Tor has its weaknesses that the NSA can take advantage of. So is not really as anonymous as a top private VPN service like ExpressVPN. These private VPNs are not as large as the Tor network and so can stay out of the spotlight. [click to continue…]
