Silent Circle released this video of ordinary people reading the fineprint and user agreements that come with installing and using a variety of apps. Lots of crazy stuff that many people tend to gloss over by hitting Accept or OK.

Maybe this will bite me in the ass one day. Maybe it won’t. I tend to be wary of free services like this because they so often have a fine-print catch to them. But I can’t seem to find one to put me off using FrootVPN. My experience with them so far has been great and their speeds are incredibly fast (they’re based in Sweden). They reportedly keep no logs of anything and with the exception of a user account, they care nothing about what sort of internet traffic is going through their VPN. Normally, these services at these speeds require monthly payments and so far I’ve been going pretty well with this service for at least 3 months of near-constant use.

They are highly endorsed by The Pirate Bay (or what was formerly The Pirate Bay) and for now, I don’t see any reason not to use FrootVPN for your own VPN needs. All platforms supported.

I actually read this story first on Reddit and it was as eye-opening then as it is now, replayed in this official ad for NO MORE.

The ad featured here will run during this year’s Super Bowl. The video recounts an allegedly real incident in which a woman calls 911 to report a domestic abuse situation by telling the 911 operator that she wants to order a pizza.
