In Topic: Wifi VPN advice

23 November 2017 - 03:12 PM

I've been forced to think about Travel VPNs, as I'm off to India early next year.

 

People say you don't need mobile data when travelling, you just use wifi, but I'll never connect to WiFi I don't know, without protection.

 

I plan to use as little mobile data as possible, it's quite expensive. If I connect to WiFi, I'd like the most protection I can get. I plan to be taking a Marshmallow 6.0 Android phone and an iPad Air2.

 

I really don't know what's involved in looking for and setting up VPNs (especially across multiple devices)

 

I think the iPad is relatively easy, once you sign up for a VPN service (on a website or an app) you just download and install a mobileconfig profile with the VPN payload,

I have less experience with Android devices however.

At the end of the day, the law says you should be in control of your vehicle at all times.  The best way to do this is to reduce distractions to the minimal required to actually operate the vehicle, and not behave in a way that could cause you to lose control.  Sometimes this does mean losing those bad habits and picking up good ones.

I went to watch it on Sunday after lunch, I was fortunate enough to have the time to watch the original again, after breakfast, just so it would be fresh in my mind.

 

This is really a movie that you need to see a few times to grasp the entirety of the message.
