Project Fi is about to make switching from Wi-Fi to mobile data painless, adding always-on VPN

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Google's long-term plans for its MVNO carrier, Project Fi, remain uncertain. But for the time being, the carrier is continuing to roll out new software features. No, Fi isn't getting RCS support — but it is starting to test an always-on VPN service and improved network switching.

Wi-Fi Assistant, a VPN that would automatically kick in on public Wi-Fi networks, was first introduced as a Project Fi exclusive feature. In 2016, it started rolling out to all Google phones, regardless if the user was a Fi subscriber or not.

CloudFlare releases Android app for its 1.1.1.1 DNS

Sunday, November 11th, 2018

DNS servers play a crucial role in modern networking. When you type in a website, like androidpolice.com, your DNS looks up the IP address tied to that domain so the page can be loaded. Most people stick with the default DNS from their internet service provider, but because ISPs have been known to log DNS queries, some turn to alternatives from Google and OpenDNS.

CloudFlare released its own public DNS service last year, which supports DNS-over-TLS/DNS-over-HTTPS and is faster than Google's service in some cases.

Mozilla teams up with ProtonVPN, will offer subscriptions to small set of Firefox users

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

In many cases, using a VPN is actually worse for your security than connecting to a public Wi-Fi network. Many services have been found logging user data, and it's hard to know which ones actually care about your privacy. To help solve this, Mozilla has conducted an extensive review of many VPN services, and will offer ProtonVPN subscriptions to a limited set of Firefox users.

"Across numerous studies we’ve consistently heard from our users that they want Firefox to protect their privacy on public networks like cafes and airports," Mozilla said in a blog post.

Pornhub made a free VPN (that’s totally not just for watching porn)

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Adult entertainment website Pornhub has created its own VPN service. VPNhub (obviously) is available on Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS, and even has an ad-supported free option. As free VPNs are becoming increasingly rare (another one bit the dust just last month), it could be worth your consideration.

VPNhub's website and app listing both politely avoid any cheeky reference to the service's parent company, although its logo and color scheme will probably look familiar to some readers.

Guide: How to make your own personal VPN in under 30 minutes

Saturday, April 14th, 2018

VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, are a popular way to stay safe online. When you connect to a VPN, all outgoing network traffic is funneled through an external server. Your internet service provider can't tell what sites you visit (only that you're using a VPN) or inject content into webpages. They're also commonly used to bypass blocked websites and to stay safe on public Wi-Fi networks.

Unfortunately, using certain VPN providers can be just as dangerous as going without a VPN in the first place.

VPNSecure Delivers a Lifetime of Safe Online Browsing for Under $35 [Sponsored Deal]

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Note: The following post was written by our sponsor, StackSocial.

There's no question that in 2018 online private data can be easily intercepted by hackers. Case in point, the hacking group that recently hit Atlanta with a massive ransomware attack and is now threatening to wipe its government data clean, lest they pay a hefty sum.

Combine this with the fact that net neutrality is currently being fought over in court, and it's clear that users should do their part to make sure they're browsing the web as safely as they possibly can.

Samsung Max is a reincarnated Opera Max VPN with a new coat of paint and a crappy so-called ‘Premium mode’ [APK Download]

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

You might recall the sudden death of the Opera Max VPN service from back in August. It turns out that Samsung somehow acquired it, and it's just been re-unveiled as 'Samsung Max.' The Korean company has given the app a new coat of paint, but it's also made the app worse in several respects.

At first glance, it doesn't look like Samsung messed with the app much aside from the interface, which is slightly touched-up to align with Samsung's design language, but there's more than meets the eye.
