We are giving away our privacy on the Internet so easily, just to get the services for free. We are not fully aware of what we accept. In the meantime, our identity online is fully trackable, our content and videos easy to access by anybody, corporations store masses of our personal data and can target us with personalized ads. Are you sure you want to let other users and companies access all of this information about you?
I am sure, there are certain videos that you want to share only with your friends and family. Some videos are part of your portfolio that you want to share only with your potential employer or clients. Popular data storages in the cloud are expensive. But there is a way out. You can publish your videos on YouTube in a way that they are visible only for people you want, not for anyone else.
How to publish your personal videos on YouTube in a way that they are accessible only for people you want?
To protect your personal videos, publish them as private or unlisted. It is virtually as easy as your typical video sharing. If you choose the “unlisted” option, the video will be accessed only for people with a link to the video. If you need more protection, choose the “private” mode. Choosing this option, your video can be accessed only via invitation and the number of invitations is limited to 50. This way no one uninvited will see your personal video. Watch this tutorial to learn how to publish videos on YouTube in a private mode or as unlisted. Protect your identity online, also when using YouTube.

What is a VPN and why you might want to start using it?
Have you heard about VPN-based solutions? A VPN stands for a “Virtual Private Network” and it is a way to establish a point-to-point connection between users, who might be in different locations, regions or countries.
The main benefits of using a VPN are:
– Security matters. When you use a VPN your identity is hidden, therefore this connection is considered safe.
– A VPN is a way to avoid regional TV and movies restrictions and censorship.
