    How To Browse The Internet Safely Without Using A VPN Using A Socks Proxy With SSH

    I've written before about the safety of public WiFi networks, and I came to the conclusion that in general, they're not safe, especially the "Free WiFi" at your local coffee shop.

    Obviously the safest way is to not use these networks at all and to use the cellular network on your phone, but that will eat into your data.

    So what are your options?

    Well you could use a VPN like IpVanish which is great, but you have to install special client software on your machine. And if it's a work machine that you're working on, you might not have local admin rights to install.

    Another solution, which I'm going to go through is to use what is known as a SOCKS proxy will be be used together with SSH.

    If this seems scary, don't worry as it's not as complicated as it sounds, and I'll explain step-by-step what it is and how to get started.

    By the end of this tutorial, you'll have a secure and encrypted way of browsing the Internet without someone in the middle being able to watch and snoop on your traffic. It's all too easy these days for hackers to use free tools like Firesheep to access your social media and run riot. So I'm going to share this tip with you and help to keep you safe online.

    On top of that, I think this is a great weekend DIY project and an opportunity to learn about things like setting up your own Virtual Private Server (if you haven't got one already), SSH and basic Linux commands.
