I've bought a samsung tablet and tethered it to my nokia phone to use the data for the internet, now I've realised that I need a VPN if I want to access sensitive sites securely and that I need one that will load onto both devices......any suggestions?

Is that a spam checker Southy.
Not that I know of.

I'm using the free version of proton vpn, we are only supposed to be able to use it on one device but I got around that by using different email addresses and I now have it on 3 devices. :)

I've seen something like this - I think - advertised. Is it a "browser" - like Edge and IE ?

I think Archie is talking about that spam check high security one - called something like VPN ?

VPN stands for virtual private network, it encrypts your browsing so that others can't see what you are doing and hinders or prevents them from stealing your identity.

I wanted a VPN because I have bought a tablet and can now use the data on my mobile phone on the tablet by "bluetooth hotspot tethering", the only thing was that I was concerned about doing online banking and a VPN offers that extra layer of security.

Free VPNs can be a bit of a worry but protonvpn is based in switzerland and makes it's money from people upgrading to a higher security paid version.

As I said the free version can only be used on one device and to be secure I needed a VPN to be installed on both my phone and tablet so I tried using a different email address and user ID for each device and I was able to get around the problem that way. :)

Today I got another Dell laptop at the previous laptop - the turn on button on the laptop it sunk into the laptop. Eventually to would be ratcrap. Though this dell laptop (NEW) 1 grand - it's a nightmare with windows 11. Most of my stuff in on my new laptop though you have to 4 windows updates because my internet security is different then McFee - it's 100% better. Screw Dell. Its was $1300.00 though with JB HI it was $1000.00 though Jesus C....:mad: It's good for Gamers as it has great graphics though window 11 it's worse then windows 10. :rolleyes:

Ok - this is windows 11. Jesus C...they have an icon so it's better for people who aren't good with computer's. Maybe I moved the wrong key? lol! It's a icon which you don't hit the same button (key). Then Dell was no help, then for 1 hour I worked it out. Only 1 hour :rolleyes:

Mine never changes. But it is fast enough for me - I don't play games so don't need all that.

I hate the way they now do annual payments for Word etc. It use to be reasonably cheap.
