The truth is that there's no such thing as Internet safety and our digital print or the traces we leave behind when we browse or use an application that connects to an online server, can be read by anyone with the knowledge to do so. As you know, our computer is identified by an IP address that's basically an ID card by means of which we can be tracked online.
Protect yourself on the Internet and access without restrictions
Nevertheless, we can make use of a VPN to connect to the Internet, which is basically a shield for our IP. It offers us a proxy located on a server that filters our connection and provides us with a different IP which will become our new identifier so that our real one remains hidden behind a fake one.
ExpressVPN for Chrome is a VPN service for Windows that offers us an extension for Google's browser with which we can control at any moment when we want to use the service and when not. Thanks to the latter we can make the most of all the following features:
- Over 1,000 servers in 145 different countries.
- Browse privately without revealing your true identity.
- Avoid advertisers and any kind of tracker.
- Avoid censorship and access restrictions based on geographical criteria.
- Protect your browsing data when accessing WiFi networks.
However, to be able to use the Chrome extension (which you can download and install for free), you'll need to have a paid ExpressVPN account.
