I have a VPN I fire up in Sao Paolo, Brazil through AWS running openVPN. Even that I would never do illegal activity with because I don't know for sure that Amazon isn't seeing my data, even though I'm pretty sure they don't.
Can anyone explain this to me? Over time I have tried and tried different VPNs, tested Nord, Tunnel Bear, CyberGhost, etc. No matter which one I've used the internet connection only on that PC disconnects, reconnects, disconnects, etc, etc off and on at different times each day. Could be fine for hours on end, but sooner or later the issue pops up.
Now, as soon as I uninstall whatever VPN I'm using the problem is fixed right then and there. So, why are VPNs causing the internet on that PC to keep goofing up?
VPN's can be really useless especially if connected to public WI-FI, all that data has to be sent to someones router or cell tower first (Unless encrypted) on the users end.
is there one that you can just fire and forget? i don't really understand that stuff i got one with my new internet provider but it seems like i have to activate it manually all the time and i tend to forget stuff like that.
VPN's can be decrypted by government agencies or any hacker that wants to spend the time doing it.
However, just like an anti virus, or firewall, its useful.
