In short, Yes. As most savvey internet users are now aware, privacy laws are undergoing a huge change worldwide. From the US to UK, government and various agencies are seeking opportunities to gain never before seen access to what digital data they are allowed to monitor. As more measures are taken to reduce the average person’s anonymity online, more people are choosing to hide their online activities by encrypting everything through a VPN. In this article we will explain some of the benefits of using Anonymous VPN service and will explain how effective these can be in safeguarding your online privacy.
What makes a VPN, Anonymous?
VPN’s made headlines in 2011 when a user was given up to authorities by the VPN provider. While no VPN company will condone usage of their services for illegal activities, it is important to note that using a VPN provider who knowingly keeps logs is about as effective as using a regular ISP. In the name of anonymity, it is paramount to choose a VPN provider that does not log their clients usage and web requests. TorGuard is one of few VPN providers that truly offers a no logging policy on all of their VPN and proxy servers.
Private Billing Methods
Let’s face it, paying with a personal credit card or paypal account may not be everyone’s first choice. When shopping for a privacy service, it is important to make sure they accept a wide range of anonymous payment options like Liberty Reserve, bitcoins, CashU, OKpay and more… Bitcoins (TorGuard’s favorite payment method) is one of the fastest growing choices for anonymous payments and should be accepted by any truely Anonymous VPN provider. New services offered by companies like Bitinstant, make it extremely easy for anyone with cash to convert them to bitcoins.
Anonymous Email Address
So let’s say you have your bitcoins loaded into your wallet and the next step is to register with your email address. Wait, not your personal email address! For a completely Anonymous VPN experience one must setup a private and secure email box completely separate from your personal mail. If gmail sees that you have ordered a VPN service, they’ll be serving you non stop VPN ads for the next two years. TorGuard offers offshore, anonymous PGP encrypted email services FREE of charge for all our clients. We suggest registering for your service with one of our secure email accounts here.
