Always Use Protection

Your high school health teacher made this phrase mean one thing, but that same precaution also applies to using the internet. You can find endless examples of privacy breaches, creepy online tracking, or straight-up public wifi hacking that make accessing the internet seem like playing with fire. And it is!

You need to protect yourself every time you connect to the internet. The best way of doing that is a Virtual Private Network, or VPN for short.

There are many VPNs out there, but I like Proton VPN.

This opinion has changed over time; the original version of this post recommended a different company. However, they were purchased by a company known for harvesting user data, so I switched. Sadly, sometimes, the tools you use to protect yourself from prying eyes can become untrustworthy, so you have to remain vigilant.
