If you are not paying for it, you are the product

This article by NPR was telling where the author Julia Angwin said she’s been googling about 26,000 times per month and they have all of her data. It’s amazing to think about all the information that those providing “free” internet access are actually gathering about you.  The fact of the matter is, some of the information is accurate, and some of it is not and you had no input in changing that perception.  Want to see some of what they have on you?  Type in www.google.com and go to settings (bottom right hand corner of your screen) and choose Web History, I’ve only had 7,986 google searches, and this data is used to bring me ads that might suit my wants, needs and desires.  By using Eyes Off VPN, I mitigate some of that risk, by keeping what I do online, private.  Go ahead, give it a try, we give you a 7 day free trial, it’s worth it!
