“Finding a Trustworthy VPN
(Virtual Private Network)
Presented by Jim Macak,
Double Click President
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) provides an encrypted “tunnel” through which a user connects to the Internet, providing a degree of security and privacy. A few months ago, Jim began posting a series of messages to the Double Click Talk email discussion list about his experiences when he was going through the process of researching and choosing a VPN for his own use.
At the May Double Click meeting, Jim began a review of his journey towards finding a trustworthy VPN and offered some tips on how you can find a VPN that is suitable for you. His presentation will be concluded at the June meeting, culminating with a review of Mullvad VPN, the VPN service that he chose upon finishing his search for a trustworthy VPN.
Every Double Click monthly Main Meeting starts with a presentation tailored especially for “beginners.” The session hosts alternate between Steve Parker and Michael Yanikowski. Steve, the long-standing Beginner’s Group Coordinator, demonstrates macOS X tips and basic techniques. Michael, an avid user of Apple mobile devices, presents basic information about iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches.
Alternating on a monthly basis, their presentations are a popular feature of the first part of every Double Click Main Meeting. New and experienced users are always sure to learn a tip or three from Steve and Michael. (If you have a tip, bring yours along to share!)
Regular Main Meetings of Double Click, Inc., the macOS User Group of Milwaukee, are held once a month on a Sunday afternoon beginning at 1:00 p.m.
We meet on the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee campus in Room E190 of the Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (EMS) Building at 3200 North Cramer Street. Thus, the EMS building is located just north of Kenwood Boulevard between N. Cramer Street and N. Maryland Avenue.
Parking is available in a surface lot with its entrance off of Kenwood Blvd. or in the EMS Building underground parking ramp with its entrance off of N. Cramer St. (The EMS parking ramp entrance is to the right (not ahead) once you have driven into the parking access area. There is a fee for parking on campus.
All regular meetings are free and open to the public.
