UK censorwall bans VPNs →

September 6th, 2013

This is insane! The filters and cencors that are on-by-default and not always easy to turn off, and mandated by the government are now blocking privacy-protecting tools.

As Cory puts it:

Instead of teaching kids how to stay safe online, the official UK Internet safety policy requires them to be totally naked in all their online communications.

Using a secure VPN is good practice when on untrustworthy networks, for example to stop the other guy at Starbucks from jumping into your Facebook account.
