Archives For security

I know it has sadly been over a year since I have last posted something on Fanboy Fashion but there have been a number of reasons why I have not been able to dedicate the time to it that it needs.  However, as of today, my time will be a little more free to post things once in a while now that I am finally able to reveal one of the projects I have had in the works.  Today, I am officially launching my new business venture, a VPN service, UndergroundVPN!

So what exactly is UndergroundVPN and why did I decide to create it and why now?

Well, as the name suggests, UndergroundVPN is a VPN service similar to the ones you see around the internet and talked about lately on the news in relation to internet security and privacy.  UndergroundVPN provides an encrypted and secure tunnel for your internet traffic to get out on to the internet without having to worry about your ISP spying on you or the hacker at the local coffee shop trying to steal your personal information as they watch your internet traffic travel through the air thanks to the free wifi hotspot that you like to use for the sake of convenience.  If you are looking to keep your online activities private from people that would like to snoop on them and keep from getting hacked when you decide to use public wifi, then UndergroundVPN is there to protect you!

Also, if you are looking to access region blocked content, the best way to do that is with a VPN!  Of course some providers put in extra restrictions to block people from doing that (I was just reading about new restrictions to prevent VPN users from using BBC’s iPlayer in the news this morning) but those restrictions are still pretty rare at this point so if there is content only available in certain countries that you want access to (something I run into on YouTube from time to time with my love for international music), then you can use UndergroundVPN to get around that block and check out the content you want!  It is quite handy if you are like me and enjoy bands that release their music in other countries first (a huge pet peeve of mine).

As for why I chose to create UndergroundVPN, there are several reasons.  One, I have been growing increasingly frustrated with my current VPN provider’s performance (whose name I won’t mention) over the last year or so.  Second, I have long dreamed about working for myself so I am hoping to grow this big enough that I can quit my normal job and be able to do this and other projects such as posting here on Fanboy Fashion from anywhere in the world.  After all, who wants to be tied to a desk if they don’t have to be?!  And finally, with all of the concern about internet privacy and security lately with governments and ISPs wanting to spy on you and the constant threats from hackers, it seemed like the perfect business to get into!  Those are a few of the biggest reasons anyway although of course there are others that aren’t worth mentioning.

As for Fanboy Fashion, now that I have finished building and launched UndergroundVPN, posts should go back to being more regular on here.  Or at least I won’t go another year without posting anything!  I’ve got other projects going and I will be spending a lot of time promoting UndergroundVPN to try to get the name out there because I am really hoping for it to become my current full time job but I will be making more time for FBF and my other geek culture site (which is much more frequently updated), Global Geek News since I won’t be in such a time crunch to get this business launched (I wanted to launch this several months ago but there has been some delays).

Now, what are you waiting for?  Go sign up and secure your internet connection with UndergroundVPN today!  And tell your friends and family too!
