If the proposed expansion of national security powers and internet surveillance comes to pass, many people will want to bypass it to protect their right to privacy. Here’s one way to do it.
- Go to privateinternetaccess.com
- Pay $40 for a yearly account
- Download and install their software
- Log in to your account and connect
That it, you’re done in less than a minute. All your internet traffic will be encrypted and routed through their servers, bypassing any data retention by the Australian government.
Of course this raises the question, if it can be bypassed so easily, for $40 a year, how could the system possibly hope to catch determined criminals? I challenge the scheme’s supporters to provide an answer.
