keep your credit cards far from hackers

1. Utilization of Proxies

A proxy is an IP address of a server (proxy server) that sits between your computer and the Internet. The benefit of using a proxy is that your correct IP address is hidden, so when you buy or sell online, you are providing the IP address of the proxy server rather than your correct IP address. Similarly, if you are a regular Internet user, the penetration hacker will not get your actual IP address, but the IP address of the proxy server. You can use it to gain access to a website or forum where your IP address has been blocked.

Keep in mind, information like credit cards, education transcripts, insurance payments, social security numbers, identity card should be handled with care online, don't enter such details in every website you find even if it's a virtual credit card. If possible, keep such assets on a safe drive than having them inform photos or scanned documents in your laptop or mobile phone.

2. Utilization of Tor

Tor-proxy is a free proxy-server service that allows Internet users to hide their IP address while browsing the Web. Tor (The Onion Router) is a free piece of software that allows for online anonymity. Tor routes Internet traffic through a free, global volunteer network of over 3000 relays to conceal a user’s location or usage from anyone. Tor project Tor includes a Tor browser and a Tor Network VPN called Orbot, which you can use to connect to Tor Network.

3. Making Use of SSH Tunneling

An SSH VPN tunnel is an encrypted tunnel created by connecting to an SSH protocol server. SSH tunnels can route encrypted traffic across a network via an encrypted channel. In layperson’s terms, you can surf the web without being watched and even access sites that are blocked via SSH connection.

don't share your location online

4. Using a VPN

VPN (virtual private network) (mobile virtual private network)It is essentially a private network that allows users to connect to other users or remote sites via a public network, typically the internet. Instead of physical connections, it uses “virtual” connections routed through the Internet from the company’s private network to the remote site or employee. 

They commonly used this in colleges, universities and government agencies for conference calling and online lecturing. In a nutshell, it is a private network built within a public network infrastructure like the global Internet. The primary distinction between a proxy and the good merit of a VPN is that everything encrypted, adding an extra layer of security.
