5 results for "VPN"


There are a number of reasons both businesses and home users would want or need to use a VPN service.  In this article, we will focus on the home user only.

Firstly, if you are not aware of the meaning of the acronym VPN – it stands for Virtual Private Network.  A VPN creates a private network with encrypted data over a public network such as the internet.  Say for instance you had a small home network of computers that were not connected to the internet.  For your purpose, this would be private since no one outside of your home would have access to it.

We have created a simple walk-through to use our Torguard Promotional Code:

View all Torguard Promo Codes

Step 1: Head to Torguard website

Hint: You should already have a new tab open to Torguard if you clicked our ‘Show Coupon’ button.  This will also give you the special promo code to use on their website.  Click on ‘Buy VPN now’.

If you are only concerned about secure web browsing, you could order the anonymous proxy but if you want secure downloads as well, we strongly recommend the anonymous VPN.

Step 2: Choose Billing Cycle

Hint: To get the best value, we suggest to choose an annual account which works out to half the price as ordering Torguard monthly.  You could also choose semi-annual (six months) but for us, the ease of one payment a year was what we find easiest.  And we are too cheap to pay for two years in advance.  Kudos to you if you’re not as cheap as us.

Another hint: Torguard offers a 7 day moneyback guarantee so there is no concern about ordering for a full year as you can just ask for a refund if for some reason you are not satisfied.

If you are the last one out, turn off the lights.

That is about it for Australia and their 23 million people when it comes to any website the government deems aids in piracy of copyright law.

This is a far-reaching law, in fact it is more onerous than most other countries I have seen pass other anti-piracy legislation. Gone will be sites like Kickass.to and thepiratebay.se. That is just for starts. There can and likely will be other collateral damage to more ‘legitimate’ sites such as Dropbox or megafileupload. Sites such as this can be easily targeted by the Aussie government since it is impossible for these companies to control every single item that is uploaded, stored or shared on their systems and it is inevitable that copyrighted material will be available.

If you download music, movies or TV shows you need to be informed of the new laws and how they effect you.

Starting January 2, 2015, the Copyright Modernization Act became law in Canada.  While the bill covers many topics, the one we’ll focus on is the one that most of us know and are guilty of: downloading of copyrighted material.

The law, in it’s current form doesn’t really change things that much from how things operated in Canada before.  For years now, most ISP’s have passed on DMCA (digital millennium copyright act) notices to their users who were noted downloading copyrighted material by the owner of the material.  Nothing was really done by the isp, they simply passed on the notice and weren’t under any obligation to do anything more than that.
