  3. I found this info here https://www.reddit.com/r/VPN/comments/4j3cna/purevpn_disconnect_your_vpn_or_enter_phone_number/ and somewhere else ( probably there too ) i heard the same with ID pictures. So they actually straight Force their costumers to give out information else they cant use their vpn anymore So you cant buy them anonymous .
  4. https://netzpolitik.org/2016/secret-report-german-federal-intelligence-service-bnd-violates-laws-by-the-dozen/ Published by Netzpolitik.org, a privacy-focused german blog which has a reputation for taking a stand on privacy, net neutrality and the political part of the internet in Germany In the past politicians tried to sue the blog's creators for disclosing secret documents. Sometimes, it's like a smaller, less hardcore version of Wikileaks, just not so "boom, secret documents in your face", more like "we've got some docs here, we think it's critical for you to know, so we sum the contents up for you". Most of the time they publish news with a few comments from the privacy's point of view and give recommendations to certain privacy-related problems. My recent software against Windows 10 spying thread originated from one of these posts.

  6. CLIQZ GmbH is a start-up based in Munich, Germany, developing the web browser Cliqz. Cliqz focuses on two things: An integrated "advanced" tracking protection feature which rewrites "unsafe" tracking links to fixed fake ones. If you are using CLIQZ, your tracking data would be mixed with those of other users, making it harder to identify you as a specific user with a specific profile. A revamped search feature powered by Human Web, a web index by CLIQZ to which other users passively contributed. In short, they seem to have edited the relevancy calculation a bit so that the ways how users interact with the search results are more important than technical things like links. It can redirect your search queries through CLIQZ' proxy servers. Their location is not documented.Some thoughts: 1. and 3. can easily be integrated into the regular Firefox as well via extensions, so it's not that new. 2. might be interesting, but building a search index the way they do it requires data from users. Besides, it directs the search query to another search engine if the user couldn't find what he was looking for. They added an about:transparency page which lists all the data your usage of the browser generated. But they completely removed addon support for security reasons, so you can't install things like NoScript which, ironically, would contribute to your security.. Cliqz can be downloaded from its website. Current version is 1.0.2 based on FF 44.0.2 (as of post date, not edit date). Update: Mozilla officially announced a strategic investment into Cliqz GmbH, the developer of the browser CLIQZ.
  7. ​Hi there, As I said I have no skills to do it and may be it already started somewhere Flash Player that can simulate Adobe flash player, but open source, like a uBlock can show the ads that been seen something similar but for youtube there is a lots of interesting stuff on youtube I like watching, but their NAZI policy it is freaking me out ​
  8. Hello, i am not aware if anyone else experiences this issue, but when i lock my phone when i am not using it, and wake it up again some minutes later, even with full network access my client fails to re connect to the tunnel. Below i have attached my log file and the view i get from the app after unlocking my device. Any help the user base could provide would be much appreciated. I also have a support ticket regarding the matter but they seem to be clueless as to the cause. OpenVPN Log File.txt
  9. So I am a US resident. Thus in my scenario the US AirVPN servers offer the least latency from what I can tell. However I am hesitant to switch to the US servers though because I am not certain how that will affect my privacy. I am assuming that the US based AirVPN servers are applicable to US laws and regulations since they reside in the US. If I were to connect to these servers instead of the default for me which is Canadian based servers, how would connecting to the US based servers effect my privacy? Do these servers have the same, minimal amount of logging just like the other servers? Can an internet service provider from the US obtain any logs or records from said servers? Is connecting to a VPN server in the same country as secure as connecting to a foreign server? I mostly do an occasional amount of P2P sharing. However my ISP has very strict regulations, i don't want to risk them having access to the records of my occasional peer to peer sharing. I just like my privacy and don’t want to risk losing it. If anybody can answer my questions, I would appreciate it.
  10. Hello AirVPN As stated in the title, I'm fairly new to this way of 'interneting' but hopefully this works out in the long run. My reason for joining AirVPN is due to my father working for my isp and I fear he may be spying on my downloads and internet browsing. I found this vpn via Reddit in search of ways to keep prying eyes out of my internet life. I guess I have just a few questions about just how private vpns are when it comes to things like that. -Am I really invisible from my isp? -What are the dangers of using VPNs? -Can an ISP bypass a VPN to access someone's searches? -How much can isp employees/supervisors see when looking at a client's internet usage? (If this isn't supposed to be on this forum please let me know T_T) Thank you in advance SSC
  11. AirVPN in the short time i have been able to use it thusfar has been an excellent tool in the business of bypassing the censorship of ISP's ranging from workplaces, public wifi etc. I have previously used PIA, IPvanish, ExpressVPN and NordVPN. AirVPN by far makes the goal of privacy and censorship bypassing their main priority of their business plan and as a customer that has been extremely valuable as other providers only give you a assurance of privacy, however AirVPN will take you the time and walk you through and SHOW you that your data is safe and the EU legislation that makes all of this possible for them. No one likes spy's, big brothers or the moral watchdogs of today's internet society's.
  12. Hi there! Imagine a scenario in which one is in a country in which it is illegal to use a VPN. In this scenario, the ideal solution for would be to use a VPN or method in conjunction with the VPN that conceals the fact that one is being used. Is this a service that AirVPN offers? How does one implement this, if possible? Is it automatically a part of the setup/deal? If it's not possible using AirVPN alone, how does one go about making this possible? Many thanks!
  13. So, the question here is threefold. (The first being more a matter of opinion, the second two being technical questions.) 1.) Say Joe Schmoe mistakenly logged into his personal email while connected to the VPN server and also while using Popcorn Time, or another similar Bittorrent service. The result is that Joe COULD be connected to the VPN use and therefore the P2P activities, but the question is whether or not this should be cause for true concern? 2.) Port-Forwarding: In what scenario would this be a good idea to use? I previously thought that it would increase privacy, but I realized that this is not the case. So, should I stop port--forwarding to become more anonymous? 3.) Finally, what does it mean to "open a port on your router?" Is that simply the same as port-forwarding, or is it a different situation? Thank you to anyone who can respond to this for me! In my experience, these forums are incredibly useful and I very much appreciate any help that I am given. Please note that I am still in the learning stage when it comes to the more technical aspects of VPN use, but I am a fairly quick learner, so I do not discourage the use of more technical jargon, but I may need to ask for an explanation. Also, if it helps the discussion: OS: Fedora 22 Network Lock always enabled in the Eddie client. Virtually always connected to VPN, unless I need to use personal accounts.

  15. Hi everybody, At the moment i am using Comodo internet security 8 and i like it.I have not noticed any security problems whilst using it but from reading some of the comodo forums its not as secure as CIS 7. I have used Airvpn's guide to block everything outside the VPN which is mainly why i use it. I would like to know some of the views from Airvpn and its users on what the best firewall and antivirus solution is.Also recently with the privdog issue bundled with comodo 6 and 7 and also its browsers i'm less sure that security and privacy is really their top concern.I have not been able to find a decent explanation about the privdog issue from comodo so am looking for an alternative. I am not a wreckless googler clicking on anything but i worry with the bugs in 8 i may not as secure as i thought. Some of the videos i've seen about how easy it is for those who know how to bypass its security make me wonder if comodo is still the best option for me. What do you guys think and recommend. This is the link about comodo 8 issues ( https://forums.comodo.com/news-announcements-feedback-cis/do-you-still-think-that-comodo-v8-is-safe-to-use-t108660.0.html )
  16. Hi im just asking what you guys do with your browsers for security and privacy. I use firefox and palemoon with addons= adblock edge,disconnect,mask me,self destructing cookies and secret agent addon from dephormation to change my useragent to the most used ones.Do you think changing useragents is needed to help against fingerprinting or not.I would like to know the best approach to being anonymous.Thanks for any feedback
  17. ​https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNZrq2iK87k If you haven't seen this yet - this is a 2+ hour, must-watch presentation about the current state of data collection / analysis / surveillance / targeting, held by (right-wing, anti-Snowden!) private investigator Steven Rambam at the HOPE X conference. Money quotes: "If this stuff had existed during the American Revolution, all of the leaders of the revolution would have been identified and arrested." "It's a double-edged sword. Undercover agents, people risking their lives assuming identities, what do they do about this? (..) It's a nightmare now. (..) Motorcycle gangs now have membership applications. And they hire private investigators to check them out." "All of this stuff is being done to catalog us, pigeonhole us - is it actually translating (..) to a reduction in crime rates, catching of terrorists, finding missing persons? No. Not at all." This presentation is a great reminder that yes, we need technological solutions like VPNs and Tor but the real problem lies so much deeper. It doesn't matter how hard we try, we can't escape or avoid "the system". We have to change it and it's not just some crooked governments or a few misguided corporations: it's the current, global mindset that enables these violations and this wrong way of thinking.
  18. I'm not sure if I am allowed to post this here (if not please notify me) but I would like to tell the glorious AirVPN community about my ongoing MyBB forum project. My friends and I have created a community where users can discuss on topics like privacy, security, cryptography, philosophy, politics, freedom and cryptocurrency and on various other topics. We are still working on it and adding new things every day but we hope to grow and have a lot of activity (might change up the theme a bit). We are also open to anyone's suggestions This might be a strange place to post this but I thought why not! Currently there is one other comparable and popular board which is 'wilderssecurity'. So if anyone wants to check us out stop by sometime. Privacy conscious people welcome! https://cryptoforums.net
  19. Hello, what is the plan for Canada servers when logging is enforced? Here is the article I got the news from: http://torrentfreak.com/canada-wants-vpns-to-log-and-warn-pirating-customers-131011/
  20. I recently had a bad experience with a program so I thought i would leave the title of the thread open ended so everyone could post other apps that fit in here. DO NOT USE VPNwatcher this little app was featured on torrentfreak. it watches the vpn connection to disconnect and then it kills whatever process you want. ie bittorrent. I trusted it too much and it failed. Air VPN disconnected for some reason and i guess it took too long for vpn watcher to shut it down. My ISP noticed, twice. I had to call in and listen to some guy tell me my connection had probably been hijacked. At least it wasn't a demand letter. But today I have setup comodo following the advice found on this site. Looks tightly locked so far. Don't make my mistake and try to take an easy way out. It probably took 15 to 20 minutes to get my net locked down with Comodo.
  21. Hi, I'm a bit surprised to see that you are able to have top 10 stats on your site. That make me feel you are keeping some kind of logs for this. I wonder how this works out with your "no logs" policy ? Thanx for your Reply
  22. I have successfully followed the AirVPN instructions on setting up the Asus RT-N66U's (Merlin firmware) openvpn client. My concern now is protecting privacy in the event the VPN drops & traffic continues through the ISP. I would like to route all client traffic through the VPN & in the event it drops, no access to the internet is available to the clients. Does anyone know of a solution for this ? A workable solution exists for the for DD-WRT routers & I'm guessing similar one can be done for the RT-N66U as it runs a variant of DD-WRT (AsusWRT). I'm not technical enough to implement it so would appreciate any help. https://airvpn.org/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=3&id=4287&Itemid=142#4287
  23. (Reuters) Sunday 30 June 2013 - The United States taps half a billion phone calls, emails and text messages in Germany in a typical month and has classed its biggest European ally as a target similar to China, according to secret U.S. documents quoted by a German newsmagazine. The revelations of alleged U.S. surveillance programs based on documents taken by fugitive former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden have raised a political furor in the United States and abroad over the balance between privacy rights and national security. Exposing the latest details in a string of reputed spying programs, Der Spiegel quoted from an internal NSA document which it said its reporters had seen. The document Spiegel cited showed that the United States categorized Germany as a "third-class" partner and that surveillance there was stronger than in any other EU country, similar in extent to China, Iraq or Saudi-Arabia. "We can attack the signals of most foreign third-class partners, and we do it too," Der Spiegel quoted a passage in the NSA document as saying. It said the document showed that the NSA monitored phone calls, text messages, emails and internet chat contributions and has saved the metadata - that is, the connections, not the content - at its headquarters. On an average day, the NSA monitored about 20 million German phone connections and 10 million internet data sets, rising to 60 million phone connections on busy days, the report said. A Spiegel report on Saturday that the NSA had spied on European Union offices caused outrage among EU policymakers, with some even calling for a suspension to talks for a free trade agreement between Washington and the EU. In France, Der Spiegel reported, the United States taps about 2 million connection data a day. Only Canada, Australia, Britain and New Zealand were explicitly exempted from spy attacks.

  24. Since I use the Comodo firewall at the recommendation of the excellent support staff here, I was wondering what do you think of their Dragon web browser, as far as privacy and security is concerned? Because I respect their opinions on such matters, I'd love to hear from the support staff, but also others who might have used it. Thanks in advance, L
