We have talked about using VPN as a layer of security before on BDLL. @EricAdams has essentially, in his Eric Adams’ way suggested that when I am out and about I should really be using one. I am just starting to play in the VPN world as a layer of protection. I am happily using Winscribe on openSUSE. Since the good folks at Windscribe.com forgot to include the openSUSE directions I have written them up here:
Windscribe offers a free account that gives you a limit of 10 GiB per month. From what I can tell, they are doing doing what they say they are doing. They don’t keep logs but that hasn’t been challenged yet. They have an OpenVPN key that does require you to use the paid service. I don’t need a VPN often as I am not away from work or home all that much but the time that I am using untrusted networks, this will be handy to have.
I would be interested in any other thoughts, ideas and experiences with VPNs.
