  What is Tor? Tor or “The Onion Router” is a service created to allow people to anonymously browse the Internet. It is a decentralized system that allows users to connect through a network of relays rather than making a direct connection. The benefit of this method is that your IP address is hidden from the sites you visit by bouncing your connection from server to server at random, in essence, losing the trail. Drawbacks: While your data is encrypted along each of the relay nodes, the final connection point at the last relay in the chain can be compromised if the requested site does not use SSL. Tor has a known drawback of substantially slowing down your browsing because of the numerous hops your data is relayed through. For those concerned with the prying eyes of the government, Tor was created in conjunction with the U.S. Navy and is…

The Android platform has an outstanding built-in VPN connection tool that allows you to connect to PPTP VPNS, L2TP VPNs, L2TP/IPSec PSK VPNs, and L2TP/IPSec CRT VPNs. This is a walkthrough of how Android users can set up and connect to a VPN with the help of a PPTP VPN. Notes about this tutorial The PPTP VPN is the Point to Point Protocol that is supported by Microsoft dial-up and is very common. The set up for each type of VPN will vary. I used a Motorola Moto G with Android Lollipop 5.0.2 for this example, so please note this process will vary on different handsets. attention: Android requires you to have a secure lockscreen, such as a PIN, Pattern, or Password lockscreen to be able to manually configure L2TP or PPTP.  …
