    And here's an article from ZDNet that explains things a little better.

    How to use a VPN to protect your internet privacy | ZDNet

    And . . . it looks like all the tech maggies and sites are getting on the security bandwagon.

    Even before this came up, there have been many people advocating that everyone should be using a VPN all the time.

    I know, but I think this just brought out our total lack of privacy.

    Case in point: I was looking for a kitchen faucet, since the one I had was leaking. I looked at Lowes and Home Depot. Now I can't surf without a gazillion ads for faucets coming up! Sheesh!

    I guess I'll still get ads for stuff I searched before installing m VPN.

    The same thing was happening to me when shopping for something.
    I received emails for the thing i was looking at from other sources.

    Now with the VPN installed I have test shopped the past two days and have not received
    anything at all.
    No one see's where I go now.

    That has been the case with some retailers for quite a while. I have even tested it with Amazon and Newegg. No matter what you look at, if you go to another site with Amazon or Newegg ads, that same item will be there. It's just getting worse now. I suspect 'we ain't seen nothing yet.'
