NordVPN: a VPN for surfing the web safely

One of the most effective solutions to surf the Internet safely and anonymously is to use a VPN.

A VPN, abbreviated to Virtual Private Network, is a system that allows the creation of a direct link between remote devices by isolating traffic. In concrete terms, it is a software that encrypts the data before it is sent over the Internet, it arrives directly on the VPN server that acts as a relay between the user and his online destination. The place to which it connects sees the user’s data as coming from the VPN server and its geographical location, thus not having access to their real source. In this way, not only is the user’s data protected, but he or she can also surf on sites that are not ordinarily accessible in his or her country.

In general, VPNs are used to remain anonymous on the Internet, to access content not available in some states and to avoid censorship problems.

VPN servers and supported devices

NordVPN allows users to connect to 5,193 servers in 62 countries on all continents to protect their anonymity and data: this is the best offer at the moment.

And that’s not all; it also allows you to connect up to six devices at the same time on all popular platforms: Android, Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android TV, Linux, Chrome and Firefox.

Data encryption

Encryption is performed in 256-bit AES, encryption is performed using the OpenVPN and IKEv2/IPSec protocols, the software does not store any data regarding the browsing history of its users, and it incorporates the Kill Switch function to preserve anonymity in the event of a disconnection, thus offering full protection to its users.

Additional options

But where NordVPN stands out from the competition is that it has specialized server types based on user needs:

– dedicated IP servers so that the user is the only one using a specific IP;

– “Double VPN” servers to send Internet traffic to two different VPN servers and thus achieve double encryption;

– hidden servers, if the user is in a country subject to severe Internet restrictions: in this way, in addition to standard encryption, data is embedded and mixed with a mass of similar information, making it even more difficult to identify the user;

– servers compatible with an onion router to increase online security;

– servers optimized for P2P sharing.

NordVPN offers subscriptions for one month, one year, two years or three years (up to 75% discount) and provides the possibility to test the software for three days for free.

Dismantling Google, Amazon, and Facebook: This is the plan of a White House candidate

A candidate in the 2020 US presidential election has a plan to demolish the digital giants. Funny you think? This is not a joke to him.

Here’s a candidate that the Internet giants better watch out. And they will probably think twice about it before participating in the financing of her campaign, because Elizabeth Warren is proposing nothing less than to dismantle some of the most prominent American digital companies, starting with those called GAFAs: Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

The Democratic candidate does not mention only Apple.

The situation is dangerous in Elizabeth Warren’s eyes. She estimates that nearly half of e-commerce goes through Amazon. As far as Internet traffic is concerned, 70% go through sites owned or operated by Google and Facebook. Therefore, there is a need for “significant structural changes in the technology sector to promote more competition.”

Two-step plan

Her plan, if she accesses the White House, has two phases.

First, a law should be passed requiring these technology platforms to be designated as public utility platforms. Besides, they should not be allowed to have any participation in other companies benefiting from this platform. It is a question of preventing them from being both judge (control of the platform) and party (ownership of all or some of the firms on it).

After, For Facebook, it would mean removing WhatsApp instant messaging and Instagram photo-sharing service. Google would be deprived of the community GPS navigation tool Waze, the advertising network DoubleClick and Nest, whose specialty is connected objects. Amazon would be denied of the organic brand Whole Foods and the shoe seller Zappos.

This list is not exhaustive: it could be extended, either at the level of the companies concerned or at the level of subsidiaries that could be separated from their parent company.

An idea that hovers in Europe

The proposal of the Democratic candidate, who is a law professor at Harvard, is not entirely new. In any case in Europe, the idea of dismantling the Internet giants – at least Google – has existed at least since 2010. The Mountain View firm is in a particular position because it is both judge (the search engine) and party (service provider).

Last year, Margreth Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition, even mentioned the dismantling of Google if the Mountain View firm fails to comply with the rules of the Old Continent. So far, Brussels has imposed two huge fines on Google, one of €2.4 billion and the other of €4.34 billion for abuses of dominant position.

All that is left is to win the 2020 election

Now on the table, it remains to be seen what the fate of this campaign promise will be. It is not sure whether she will win the 2020 US presidential election or not, as Elizabeth Warren will have to emerge victorious from the Democratic Party primaries first and foremost. Primary schools that look difficult, given the number of candidates in the running – there are currently about fifteen names.
