Ukash Suspension

TUVPN News 9 Comments »

UKash Logo

 

Dear Customers

We bring you disappointing news from Ukash.

We have received notice that from the 4th of January 2012, TUVPN.COM customers will be unable to process payments via Ukash.

WHY?

Ukash's reason for no longer offering the service to TUVPN?

They now regard any service that blocks the IP of an online customer as being open to "facilitating malicious activity". Ukash's NEW merchant terms of use exclude businesses that offer such a service from utilising the Ukash payment processing solution.

You can be assured that we have had a rather vigorous discussion with Ukash's Chief Risk Officer. He has advised us that while they do not like to turn away our business, their Board of Directors have made the decision and it has no flexibility. We pointed out the irony of a payment processor that provides for customer anonymity, creating rules that prevent businesses offering anonymity services from using their payment service. The reply we received was, "perhaps its the combination of our two businesses that is the problem"…. We pointed out a list of other online business that use Ukash that could "facilitate malicious activity". We did not get much argument. It would seem that logic, common sense, and reason has flown out the window in this instance!

WHAT OPTIONS DO UKASH USERS HAVE?

For those customer's wishing to use UKash. We suggest you top-up your TUVPN account before the 4th of January, 2012.

After this date, you will need to use our other payment options. This includes 2Checkout where all major credit cards and Paypal can be used, and separately Moneybookers.

 

Thank you for your continued custom.

Regards,

The Team at TUVPN

Are Mobile Devices Properly Protected?

VPN & Security News No Comments »

According to a new Juniper Research report, there are few smartphones and tablets properly protected from malicious software, viruses, and theft of sensitive data. Despite the high level of threats, nearly four per cent of mobile devices have additional security software installed in them, the report says.

The popularity of mobile devices is growing day by day, more and more people store their personal data on them or use them to access their e-mails, visit web sites, send important information or make online banking and shopping  transactions. That’s why it is becoming important for users to protect these devices the same way they protect desktop or laptop computers.

Juniper Research predicts an increase in security products for mobile phones and tablets. Nitin Bhas, the report’s author, claims, “We believe that the market for mobile security products will go mainstream by late 2013 as the vulnerability of data-centric mobile devices becomes more widely appreciated both in the business and consumer sectors. High-profile security alerts are likely to heighten the public’s awareness of this growing issue.”

However, a lot of people have already used different methods to protect the private data stored on their mobile devices. The majority of users prefer a VPN connection as it is one of the most reliable ways of privacy protection. There are a variety of VPN services available on mobile devices, among them are Android and iPhone VPN.  The best VPN services provide strong data encryption and minimise the opportunity of sensitive information theft.

US Government Creating “Shadow Internet” to Bypass Web Censorship

VPN & Security News No Comments »

It has been reported that Obama's administration has started the creation of a duplicate Internet that would be able to help people from the countries with repressive regimes to bypass censorship. According to the New York Times, the US is going to develop a so-called "shadow" Internet and mobile phone systems in order to support web anonymity and facilitate putting an end to repressive regimes.

It is also said that the US government plans to create independent cellphone networks in non-democratic countries and launch "Internet in a suitcase" that could be available in every country and would provide Internet access globally. The US authorities are reported to have allocated $ 2 million for the development of this project.

The US is financing the launch of wireless networks in non-free countries in order to give dissidents an opportunity to communicate with each other in case the Internet is blocked. The New York Times said that the government had already spent at least $50 million developing such a network in Afghanistan.

Many people from countries as Iran, Syria, Libya, and Japan use the best VPN services to bypass limitations imposed by the authorities. It is a reliable way to stay connected and protected. But even a VPN connection is not helpful if the Internet. shuts down completely. After Hosni Mubarak turned off the Internet during the political uprisings in Egypt, it has become a common practice in countries with repressive regimes.

Circumvention of Online Censorship

VPN & Security News No Comments »

As we have already informed, in countries with non-democratic regimes, internet censorship has become the main means for the governments to control society and prevent social unrest. Nevertheless, there are many ways for users to bypass internet restrictions, and everyone chooses the most suitable for him/her. The selected tool will depend on what you’re doing on the internet: uploading, downloading or just surfing. More and more often, overviews of such tools are published on any kind of websites.

TMCnet.com recently published an article called “11 Ways to Circumvent Internet Blockades.” The author insists that “no censorship circumvention tool is 100 percent safe“, and adds: “Rule number 1: you’re clever, but the authorities are cleverer.”

There is always the risk of being detected. Internet cafes do not offer full anonymity, your activities can be reported to the authorities.

The majority of users all over the world consider VPN to be the best way to circumvent online censorship. The best VPN services provide high level of security and don’t slow down the user’s connection. Besides VPN, there are other circumvention tools that are widely used to evade limitations. Their effectiveness depends a lot on the users’ activity on the internet: uploading, downloading or just browsing.

Every tool has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of them, like JAP, YourFreedom, Tor or Psiphon provide their users with good technical support, portability and easiness of usage, but they are not always reliable and often make the Internet work  very slow.

Circumvention tools are developed both by non-governmental organizations and by commercial companies that promote availability of Internet, support freedom of expression and consider online censorship to be a violation of users’ rights.

Internet Censorship Spreads all over the World

Internet Censorship, VPN & Security News No Comments »

The Internet has already become the most popular tool for mass communication. Every year the number of people using Internet grows, but at the same time more and more governments implement online censorship in their countries. Nowadays there are about 40 countries that have web censorship; compared to 2002, when there were only four.

Protecting internet privacy is of crucial importance for users from different places. That’s why some people consider any form of government intrusion to be a violation of their rights. But others think that every freedom should have its limits and admit that some restrictions are reasonable, for example the prohibition of child pornography.

However, the toughest censorship usually is used in countries with repressive regimes such as China, Vietnam, Ethiopia and Iran. The repressive governments use censorship to achieve their own latent goals, to prevent protests and to find people that disagree with their policies. Usually, web sites that can jeopardize the current regime are banned in these states.

There are a lot of countries where only a limited number of users have Internet access. We have already reported about the situation in Syria, Cuba, North Korea, Yemen and many other countries where people are not allowed to visit the majority of sites. Many users in these countries have to bypass restrictions with the help of the best VPN services available, that provide them with secure browsing and the guarantee of high-end web anonymity.
