Migrating from Google and Others
Google used to be all about “Don’t be evil”, however now with their size, that’s not really a thing for them any longer. I’ve been slowly migrating things away from Google as I’ve gotten the chance to do so, not just because of this, but in order to have better control over my data and my email.
Email and contacts from Google to my own domain
Gmail is a decent service, but the old saying goes “if it’s free, then you’re the product”.
VPNs and a Review
Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates an encrypted tunnel between your computer and a remote computer. You may have connected to your workplace via a corporate VPN and it’s the same concept. Once connected, any network traffic generated by your device is sent over the encrypted tunnel to the remote machine, and then out to the world at large. Basically if someone were to try to sniff your traffic between your computer and the remote VPN server, all they would see is garbage.
