How To Keep Your Browsing History Actually Private

Congress voted to allow your Internet service providers to sell your online activity to advertisers – here’s the simplest way to prevent that from happening.

What the heck is a VPN?

A VPN, or virtual private network, is a service that will privatize everything you do on the Internet through encryption. In other words, it will hide your IP address (which reveals your physical location) and the pages you’re visiting. A VPN is like a secret tunnel that turns all of the data running through Internet cables into gibberish, so your Internet service provider (AT&T, Comcast, Charter, etc.) can’t see what you’re up to and, therefore, can’t sell that information to marketers.

It’s safer, too. Most VPNs have servers that scan data in real-time for websites with hidden malicious software.
