    Vpn

    If you've thought about setting up a VPN (Virtual Private Network), you might want to try the free Opera browser, which has one built in. It requires no setup, just clicking on a "switch" to turn it on. VPN's basically just hide your actual IP address, so you can access the internet more safely and not reveal your actual location to internet bad guys... think of it as a program that spoofs your location.

    I visited my gmail account the other day while operating under the VPN, and got an urgent message from Google that someone in the Ukraine had apparently discovered my password and accessed my Gmail. That confirmed for me that it works.

    No free VPN is as good as some of the paid ones, but for the average person, Opera will do a good enough job of making you more invisible.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Thanks!

    I will try Opera now since I get tired of paying these VPN fees and only rarely using it due to the hassle

    Try going to https://www.whatismyip.com/and seeing where it is showing your location to be.

    Mine shows me to be somewhere in VA right now, but it has shown me to be in Ukraine, S. Africa, and places in Asia at times.
