Last fall I blogged about internet security and protecting yourself online. This is something my colleague, Jeff Sonnleitner, and I talk about extensively in my courses for the IT-Tech Support Specialist program and his courses for the IT-Network Specialist program here at Moraine Park Technical College. Recently President Trump signed a law effectively allowing your internet service provider (ISP) to collect your browsing data and sell it to whomever they choose.
They don’t even need your permission to do this. You can read more about that here. In light of this news I thought it prudent to revisit the VPN (Virtual Private Network) discussion and provide some more information on how you can protect yourself and hide your browsing history online.
