Is your online identity protected?

The less you reveal about your location such as your IP address the more secure your connection. Take control over the information you allow to be visible on the internet.

A virtual private network (VPN) extends your private network across the Internet. It enables you to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. This means you can protect your data and IP address. You can also “tunnel” around blocked sites and censorship by having a virtual presence in another country.  A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is your first line of defense on the internet.

*all VPN’s include:  Secure VPN Account – Encrypted WiFi – P2P Support – 5 devices simultaneously – Block ad-trackers, and malware – Multiple VPN Gateways – Unlimited Bandwidth – SOCKS5 Proxy Included – No traffic logs – Instant Setup – Easy to use.

Sites Warn EU Users Of Just How Bad Article 13 Will Be

As we mentioned, a bunch of websites started protesting yesterday in the lead up to next week’s vote on Article 11 and Article 13 that will fundamentally change the nature of the internet. The main ones were various European Wikipedia editions, which completely blacked out and posted a warning message. Here’s the one in Germany (with automatic browser translation — the original, obviously, is in German):

Different sites are doing different things — and for some it depends on whether you’re visiting from the EU or not, but it’s good to see so many sites coming together on this. Reddit, as explained in a blog post on its site, are telling any EU Redditor who tries to post something new that it’s blocked:

Lots of others have stepped up as well. The ever popular online streaming site Twitch is warning people in a variety of ways, including creating a video about its concerns:

And has also put the message all over its social media:

Patreon, the very popular website for helping creators get paid has warned its creators that under Article 13, it may need to block their content:

Others who have spoken up include Creative Commons and the Internet Archive:

Another site that joined in — which we’ll refrain from screenshotting — is the most popular porn site on the internet, Pornhub.

Between all of this, the question now remains: will the EU Parliament ignore all of these voices? Ignore all of the over 5 million people who signed a Petition against Article 13? Will it ignore all the companies who have said that Article 13 will put them at a disadvantage compared to Google? Will it ignore of the content creators who rely on platforms like Twitch and Patreon?
