1 Nonsecu.re - OpenVPN hides your location

Why do I need a VPN? 

Hide Your Own Tracks

After net-neutrality took effect, your ISP can now sell your web browsing history. Whenever possible ensure connections between networks are run through an encrypted tunnel to protect security.  By creating your own private VPN server one has greater control over connecting clients end-points. 

And since OpenVPN is an open standard, you can just cut out the middleman providers (such as NordVPN). 

What you want to accomplish is to completely hide your tracks, everything,  all packets that leave your LAN are obfuscated.  Even leaving your ISP totally clueless as to what type of browsing or downloading going on.



Why and How

With the client software running, your data firstly gets encrypted and then pushed through a private tunnel directly connecting your local device to a remotely hosted server.  All communication between the two points is encrypted, which would allow you to connect to distanced networks, such as your office's internal network.


Why do we want to pay monthly for a service you can just subscribe to?
