November 20, 2018The Hacker News
It seems as though not a day goes by without a new story breaking about a high-level cyber attack on a major corporation or national government. Hackers are becoming increasingly adept at breaking through a variety of super-secure firewalls, and they're not just after the riches of Fortune 500 companies.

A VPN ( Virtual Private Network ) is your first and most important line of defense against everything from individual hackers to large-scale malware attacks, and if you're still surfing the Web without one, you may as well be leaving your laptop open and unattended in a crowded coffee shop.

Facebook yesterday removed its mobile VPN app called Onavo Protect from the iOS App Store after Apple declared the app violated the iPhone maker's App Store guidelines on data collection.

The so-called VPN app has been the source of controversy earlier this year, when the social media giant offered it as a free mobile VPN app, promised to "keep you and your data safe when you browse and share information on the web." However, Onavo Protect became a data collection tool for Facebook helping the company track smartphone users' activities across multiple different applications to learn insights about how Facebook users use third-party apps.
