Security from what? Hackers? Possible but I suspect not. Govt? Pretty sure they can access what they want, vpn or not.
Vons are good for protecting your internet traffic for m.other people, while your traffic is being transmitted. Doesn’t help protect either endpoint really.thats why it’s good for corporate stuff, you can move data back and forth between two known secure endpoints (your laptop and company servers). But personally I don’t see the need.
I don’t think you’ll be anonymous on the WWW, since most browsers transmit a slew of info that can be used to track you. Also, some sites like 4chan blacklist the IPs of known VPNs.
For those of you on here who do use a VPN at home, do you have it configured in your router using OpenVPN so that all devices use it transparently; or do you configure the VPN on each device separately?
I’ve used a VPN to watch Canadian TV. There were some annoyances, but mostly it worked. I couldn’t really figure out what it bought me in terms of security, so when i finished watching the stuff i wanted to watch, i dropped the VPN.
It doesn’t seem to mention a specific penalty…just that the pr0n website is liable if an underaged individual in Utah accesses its content, unless they make a reasonable attempt to check for age.
Presumably questions about whether the use of geolocation via IP address is sufficient, or if such website operators have to consider the potential for VPN use, in such attempts would be hashed out in court.
Thanks. Their definition of a “reasonable age verification methods” is about what I expected. Kids can steal Dad’s credit card or look over someone’s shoulder. I’m curious to see how your second paragraph plays out.
I live in a city but websites that recite my dox to me say I’m in a nearby incorporated suburb. I assume misidentification that crosses state lines is less common, but I know some IP addresses track to nothing more specific than a country. Sucks for them if they’re excluded from the pr0nz.
