As the US Internet Privacy Regulation is repealed, Internet Service Providers will be allowed to share and even sell your browsing history and personal data to third parties without your consent. By using a VPN server, you can, however, stop this from happening.
At US Mobile we believe you have the right to privacy. This is why we have decided to partner with Windscribe. Windscribe is a leading VPN service provider that secures your privacy by encrypting your data, no matter which device you’re on.
What is VPN?
VPN means Virtual Private Network, which allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet. It basically encrypts all data coming in and out of your device to protect your online privacy.
Let’s say you browse the web from your phone. When you connect to the internet an Internet Service Provider (ISP), like AT&T and Comcast, provides the actual connection to the site. That means that all the traffic in and out of the servers can be viewed by your ISP. When you use a VPN, your data instead connects through a server encrypting the data so that your ISP can’t see it. You’re basically surfing incognito, with 100% privacy. It doesn’t matter if your own your home network or on a public WiFi hotspot – no one will be able to view your data.

How To Setup a VPN
Setting up your Windscribe VPN is easy. You just need to create a username and password to sign up. Windscribe doesn’t store logs, IP stamps, or visited sites. When you’re actively connected to a server it stores your username, the server you’re connected to and the amount of data transferred. This is erased three minutes after the session is ended.
Why You Should Use a VPN Service?
To recap, as the privacy regulation is scrapped your personal data is up for grabs to anyone your ISP is sharing it with. By using a VPN, you:
- Keep your emails and messages private.
- Avoid getting your IP address and location exposed, compromising your security.
- Stop advertisers from following and targeting you wherever you go.
- Browse the web anonymously.
