Using a VPN provides easy access to region-locked content and keeps creepy trackers at bay. But Facebook and Google aren’t the only ones collecting your data—right under your nose, your internet service provider is doing the same dang thing.
Thankfully, a VPN can protect you from your ISP. But can your service provider tell that you’re using a VPN, and if so, what does it see? Check our top story to learn more.

If you want to be more prepared during a power outage or travel light during camping trips, look no further than this solar-powered inflatable lantern from MPOWERD. Full disclosure, I own several of these Luci lights, and they’re absolutely amazing and simple to use.
The lantern is under an inch thick when not in use, so it’s super portable and lightweight. One side has solar panels that quickly recharge the built-in battery. Then, inflate the lantern, and it extends to 5-inches tall. Turn it on and let all 10 LEDs light up camp, your tent, a cabin, or even strap it to your pack while going up a hiking trail at sundown. You can choose between low beam, high, or a flashing SOS mode. Just buy one, and you can thank me later.
