Anonymity does not breed bad behavior.

The right to withhold your identify, like the right to remain silent, is not the sign of a thug or child predator. It is the sign of a free human being. Continue reading Anonymity does not breed bad behavior.

Benefits of VPN while you travel

When my husband was traveling to Houston, Korea and Germany, I missed him terribly.  We don’t like being apart, but I had to stay and take care of our animals and he needed to travel for work.  We stayed in touch via Skype, sometimes the quality wasn’t that great, but even having the screen freeze with him there in front of me and still hearing his voice was comforting.  It actually sent me to tears the first time I saw him over Skype because I missed seeing his face so much.

One of the reasons you need Eyes Off VPN if you are traveling to the Caribbean or the Bahamas (for example) is so you can stay in touch with your loved ones without being forced to pay outrageous fees.  Why not spend $6.50 for 1 month of service or spend 52.00 and be covered all year.  Stay in touch with your loved ones.  Talk via Skype!  It’s easy to configure even for non geeky types.  Some say the video is not that great, and if that’s the case, just talk, if you can see their face, (I know), it’s better than not seeing or hearing from them at all.

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!

Free Wifi? Who else is listening?

A friend of ours is in Miami Beach where they have city wide free wifi.  That’s great and all, but who else is using that wifi that might be interested in your traffic?  Criminals, cartels, the police, NSA, hackers? Continue reading Free Wifi? Who else is listening?

If you are doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear, right?

WRONG!  This is absolutely a false statement!

“A lot of people think about privacy but don’t really care until something happens to them personally,” said Beth Givens, director of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. “It’s like freedom. You don’t appreciate it until it’s gone. If you are a victim of identity theft, you experience a change of world view, you realize how little control you have over your world.”
