Life is certainly wonderful for digital nomads. They enjoy (mostly) freelance work, travel once in a while and see wonderful places. Not to mention, they expand their horizons by meeting new and different cultures.

There is still hope: Nevada fights back against ISP law

In the US, under Trump’s presidency, ISPs were recently given carte blanche to sell customer data. Thus, Internet privacy protection measures voted during Obama’s administration were repealed.

Counteractions did not hesitate to soon appear. Starting October, Nevada will force website owners to notify visitors about how they’re using their data.

The future of privacy is here – time to update your CyberGhost app

With the overwhelming expansion of online devices, it quickly became obvious that far more addresses would be needed to connect devices than the IPv4 address space had available.

That is why IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) came into play. The total number of possible IPv6 addresses is more than 7.9×1028 times as many as IPv4, which uses 32-bit addresses and provides approximately 4.3 billion addresses.

IPv6 provides other technical benefits in addition to a larger addressing space, but we will not get into those, because what you need to know is…

Why we decided to deploy IPv6 services

As you’ve already probably noticed, we are always one step ahead of our competitors.

Most VPNs have been slow to accommodate the global transition to IPv6 and update their server networks. Of course, upgrading servers to support IPv6 is an expensive and difficult effort, but we’ve always promised to provide the best kind of online privacy solutions and we stay true to our motto.

Chrome Private browsing doesn’t protect your privacy. Are we doomed?

What? But I thought that was the whole purpose of Chrome private browsing mode, Incognito.

That’s actually what everybody thought. But it turns out Incognito mode doesn’t keep you that private after all. It’s more like a hideout from your work colleagues or family, because the ISP can still see all the websites you’ve lusciously browsed, along with your boss and government.

Did you know that your Internet Service Provider (a.k.a. ISP) can see your entire browsing history and online traffic? Unless you hide your IP and use confirmed privacy solution, you stand no chance to keep your online life private. Read More
