VPNs are used in all different ways with all sorts of different people, but 4TFY has hit Kickstarter offering itself as an "easy-to-use, cost-effective VPN service".
The Kickstarter page for 4TFY continues, saying that their VPN service "allows you to hide your browsing activity from both your government and internet service provider, bypass government-imposed censorship, access geo-blocked content, mask your IP address, hide your physical location, and encrypt your internet traffic for greater browsing security".
The reason 4TFY caught my attention is that it is just $89 for a lifetime VPN service, blowing other VPN services out of the water that charge $89 per year on average. 4TFY is very aware of the "mass government surveillance is now the norm", offering the lifetime VPN service so that "your activities are not recorded and that you are able to access any content, anywhere, anytime. We do this by masking your IP address, by encrypting your internet traffic, and by passing this traffic through one on our highly secure servers".
For $80, a lifetime VPN is a steal. Moving into the future of the government and corporations recording everything we do, it couldn't come at a better time.
