Unless you live in a hole, you have heard about people having private information stolen on the Internet.  In my line of work I occasionally encounter clients who have suffered significant cyber losses.  A friend who has a well-developed sense of paranoia suggested I review a private VPN product for personal use.  I took his advice and installed PIA. If you are concerned about your personal data or like me, annoyed that you are prevented access to certain sites because you live in Canada you might wish to consider a private encrypted VPN.
