What is a VPN?VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a layer of protection for using the internet. It routes all of your connections via a Private Server before then sending you on your way to your intended destination. This hides your identity and your activity from hackers and your ISP (internet service provider) therefore making it impossible for anyone, including the authorities to see what you have been doing online!

The Best Free VPN and Web Browser
I love Opera. It’s my default browser on windows and it’s fast, it’s customisable, easy to use and comes with Whats App integration, screen capture and Facebook Messenger as Standard.
But what I really love is that it is the only Browser that has a Free built in VPN! Now the VPN does only have basic settings but it’s FREE!
You can only pick from 3 geo locations; (Asia, Americas and Europe) but there’s no data limit and it has a feature that can be set to override the VPN when making local broswer seaches so that the results are still relevant. It’s a great browser and a good Free VPN for windows.
But did you know you can get even more content from all over the world if you Get a VPN?
What is Russia’s new VPN law all about?
A Russian law regulating the use of technologies enabling users to search the internet anonymously came into force on 1 November.
Many are worried the law will make it harder for Russians to bypass internet censorship. Signed by President Vladimir Putin in July, the law imposes restrictions on proxy avoidance tools. These tools include virtual private networks (VPNs) and anonymous proxy servers (anonymisers). VPN providers will be obliged to closely cooperate with Russian media watchdog Roskomnadzor and comply with its requests.
Porn ID checks set to start in April 2018
A nine-month countdown to the introduction of compulsory age checks on online pornography seen from the UK has begun.
The April 2018 goal to protect under-18s was revealed as digital minister Matt Hancock signed the commencement order for the Digital Economy Act, which introduces the requirement. But details as to how the scheme will work have yet to be finalised. Experts who advised ministers said the targeted date seemed “unrealistic”. The act also sets out other new laws including punishing the use of bots to snatch up scores of concert tickets, and mandating the provision of subtitles on catch-up TV.
