VPN’s can sometime scare people, or from time to time I hear the old saying “I have nothing to hide so I might as well provide (insert authority here) with the information they are asking for.” The problem with this thought is, when you look at a VPN like it’s a lock on your bathroom door, you can see that just because you don’t have something to hide, doesn’t mean you want someone walking in on you while you are using the restroom. Same thing can be said about the external doors to your house, you don’t want your neighbors to see you binge watching your favorite show at your worst, binging on a bag of chips, right? VPNs are the locks on our doors, the privacy in the bathroom, it is important to have privacy while you are on the internet for things such as working from home, logging into a bank account, or reviewing your email. These are places we go on the internet where no one, not your ISP, a hacker, or even the government should be snooping their noses in on. For a government entity to create and enforce a law that requires a VPN keep logs for its user’s traffic is like, outlawing locks to your house or on bathrooms. These logs give the government the right to invade your bathroom or keep tabs on you while you are just relaxing in your own home. The next time you think about a VPN don’t look at it like, “well I have nothing to hide,” instead look at it like desiring privacy when you use the restroom.
