This website’s getting really popular, and as a dealer, I worry about your safety. My main concern is this: What if the feds were monitoring this site and what if they could track the people on this site? This is what I worry about night and day.
So I’ve been thinking and to counter this, we need to take the proper precautions. The internet is a dangerous place if you don’t know what you’re doing, so to be deceptive, we must learn how to use it. Similar to how you step up your security when you’re business is expanding, you need the proper tools.
We need to be extra careful, we need to protect our privacy, and we must take this very seriously. Never get too lazy or complacent in this business, this is our job, this is our profession, this is our livelihood. In order to succeed, we must protect ourselves, privacy is our main priority when using the internet. Use these to protect yourselves when visiting this website:
The first thing I recommend using is the TOR browser. The TOR software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.
VPN (Virtual Private Network)
To begin, there are some people who say that VPN doesn’t protect you because they still track all of your information. Services such as Hidemyass has a history of giving up users so this may not be necessary.
The VPN is as a secure tunnel between your PC and destinations you visit on the internet. Once you’re connected to the VPN and are “inside the tunnel,” it becomes very difficult for anyone else to spy on your web-browsing activity. The only people who will know what you’re up to are you, the VPN provider, and the website you’re visiting.
When you’re on public Wi-Fi at an airport or café, that means hackers will have a harder time stealing your login credentials or redirecting your PC to a phony banking site. Your Internet service provider (ISP), or anyone else trying to spy on you, will also have a near impossible time figuring out which websites you’re visiting.
On top of all that, you get the benefits of spoofing your location. If you’re in Los Angeles, for example, and the VPN server is in the U.K., it will look to most websites that you’re browsing from there, not southern California. Once you start using a VPN, your internet connection may get a little slower, but as long as you’re protected, it’s worth the sacrifice.
VPN service providers work on a paid subscription model, so you’ll be paying monthly for it. Find the ones where you can pay anonymously, without using a credit card. I’m not going to list them for obvious security reasons but there are ones where you can pay using gift cards or bit-coin.
