Surveillance technology is so advanced that it is now possible to get almost any data about anyone on the open internet. That is, if you don’t use the available tools to shield yourself from scrutiny. There are as yet no laws to protect internet users from invasive surveillance by the NSA or any other agencies or internet companies for that matter.
3 Degrees of Separation
The NSA can conduct surveillance on individuals, their contacts, the contacts of those contacts, and one step further to people who communicate with them. This is three hops from the original target. They would logically target dangerous individuals such as suspects in terrorist activities. But if you have somehow come into contact with someone who has communicated with another person in contact with any such suspect, you are probably under surveillance. Of course you probably don’t know who all the contacts of your contacts are. And so your online activities could very well be monitored by the NSA and you wouldn’t have a clue.
On the internet, it is so easy to communicate with people, whether or not you know them personally. It is hard enough for average internet users to trace who these people know. You could easily be in touch with a friend of a friend of a terror suspect without knowing it. And you probably don’t even talk about anything related to terrorism with your online contacts. So without ant tools to help you maintain privacy, you could be exposed to invasive surveillance.
Change IP VPN for Privacy
With the above, it is easy to guess that a lot of innocent people are currently under surveillance. If you don’t like the idea of being watched as you chat, browse and do whatever it is you do online, you need a Change IP VPN. A Change IP VPN is a simple tool that masks your original IP address. This is done to prevent others on the internet from locating and identifying you through your ISP connection. Combined with data encryption and private transport of all your communications, you can maintain your privacy and security.
Think about how many contact you have, say on Facebook or Google+. Then imagine how many contacts all of those people have. That’s just the first degree. It increases exponentially to the third degree. If you do the math, you will have an idea of the number of people who are three hops away from you. What are the odds that at least one of these people is under surveillance? If you think it is likely, then you had best set yourself up with a Change IP VPN today to avoid getting involved in the surveillance web.
