As a final note, I’d like to mention the fact that all the privacy protection in the world won’t mean a thing if you don’t use said protection wisely. Essentially, you compromise your privacy protections by identifying yourself (typically by clicking the "login" button) to a website, especially privacy-invading sites like Google and Facebook. Your own ISP have a lot of other information about you and, especially in the UK, are relied upon to supply the Government with personal information. I think your main problem is that you’re mixing up threat models.
- ● You want to access content that is not available in your region.
- The result is that when you attempt to access content that is otherwise restricted, you are now allowed to access the content.
- A Smart DNS works as an intermediary by diverting your requests for different websites.
- It changes the part of your request that contains your location with a different one that is permitted by the blocked website.
I will not recommend any specific providers (diversity is good!), but there are plenty of cheap ones to be found on LowEndTalk. However, in practice, just don’t use a VPN provider at all, even for these cases.
Some website owners block Tor, because they cannot get honest GeoIP lookups out of a client when the request comes out af a Tor exit relay. In fact, the whole point of Tor is to obfuscate your source IP address, while remaining encrypted between the Tor client and the relays. I need to get into an internal network with other clients, such as my browser. Also, please tell me where I get a 1Gbit proxy with unlimited traffic and ideally port forwarding, I’d definitely be using that. If you absolutely need a surfshark vpn VPN, and you understand what its limitations are, purchase a VPS and set up your own (either using something like Streisand or manually – I recommend using Wireguard).

Statistically speaking, it is more likely that a VPS provider will give you up if a cop so much as glances in their direction, where as a reputable VPN company will at least attempt to push back. If you absolutely need a VPN, and you understand what its limitations are, purchase a VPS and set up your own. I will not recommend any specific providers (diversity is good!), but there are plenty of cheap ones to be found on LowEndBox. Personally, I prefer to run my own VPN for $10/$15 a year using a cheap 128MB VPS from either Prometeus or Ramnode.
You can also use it for other such as running a very small seedbox or web seed, or a tiny bittorent tracker. Do not use HideMyAss, Expat Shield, Hotspot Shield because they datamine/keep logs. Still looking for more articles or discussion to address my paranoia. And I don’t buy the argument that your IP address is not a valuable asset to trackers and ad companies.
