Surfing without Big Brother Watching

Posted by mfluch on April 25, 2010

Do you have enough of the feeling that the state and your ISP is watching your use of the internet? Then IPredator (Wikipedia) might be a solution to you. It is an anonymizer proxy service in Sweeden run by the people who have once created the famous Pirate Bay site. As a prepaid VPN service they hardly need to store any data of you and even this little data is very strongly protected by Sweedish privacy laws (see their legal FAQ).

I have used it now for a few months and it works reliable for me. It is nice to know that I can surf the internet without the UK government and my ISP being able to monitor my moves. And this peace of mind for just around 5€ per month.

Some more information on: ArsTechnica and Tech Fragments.
