After listening to your presentation on VPNs, I’m doubtful that they are good value for the dollar (or pound). Of course I realize it depends on a person’s needs. If your doing stuff that illegal or sort of illegal, then yes. If you spend a lot of time on insecure networks at Starbucks or McDonald then okay. Or if you’re an independent contractor and you connect to the internet over the phone lines to do business, then yes there to.
But I do none of those two things. I’m not downloading pirated videos or games, nor am I on an insecure network. I’m home mostly. My biggest concern is simply identity theft over the internet. And from what you said, my impression is that a VPN would not do much to help me with preventing identity theft
Basically, I’m just a newly retired guy who buys a lot of stuff on the internet and who reads a lot of stuff on the internet. As long as I buy from places with https and I use strong passwords and I think before I click, I feel a VPN will add little to my security.
I was just wonder if you would agree with that.
