In recent months the UK, Australia and the US have instigated steps that affect the privacy of Internet users. In Australia ISPs now have to keep and release on request metadata of their subscribers. In America Trump has signed off a bill that allows ISPs to sell user data. In the UK, the Home Secretary Amber Rudd has demonstrated her lack of understanding of encryption by highlighting alleged terrorist usage of WhatsApp following the tragic killing of PC Keith Palmer at the Houses of Parliament. The fact that the killer had dropped off the UK intelligence services “of interest” list some years ago seems to have evaded her, as did the question of why PC Palmer was not wearing a stab vest.
Choosing a VPN
In recent posts and on Twitter I have argued that all Internet users should use a virtual private network (VPN) to protect their privacy. I do not watch or download pornography, subscribe to child abuse sites, support a terrorist group of any religious persuasion. I just happen to believe that politicians and civil servants do not have an automatic right to see what my use of the Internet is for. If they did manage to get their hands on this information they would, quite frankly, be bored shitless.
