Cyber security
Though it is evident that VPN technology has been exploited by the industry by ust too many times be it by hackers themselves or jihadists. Although it may sound like what's the purpose left then, it is important for ordinary net user to not under estimate the importance of vpn technology. I have been using purevpn to secure my important files and folders and to avoid those phishy scams and hacking attempts that have marred the internet in recent tmes.

Better option needed
 

There will be those who will be abusing technology on hand and using it for their benefits and harming others. Not advancing technology is not a solution to these problems. Countries should find a better way to deal with the dark web.

Virtual private networks (VPNs)
 

Virtual private networks (VPNs) such as CyberGhost VPN are not secure. People miss-understand what VPN is. Unless it is tied to your corporate network, it is somebody else's network and could not be considered as secure for public consumption.

Re: Operating Online
"My online activity is no one else's business "

I generally agree but there should be some constraints around it in my view, we should not be abusing the technology and harm others with it.

Re: In my humble opinion
"the terrorists would be to have direct access to the smartphone or computer of the sender or the recipient of the messages"

Agree. Most likely they do. Whether is it Apple or other companies, they all work with the agencies as needed basis, I am just assuming, that is what makes sense. The same is true in all other countries.

Dark Web
 

Enjoyed the article. Obviously Dark web is growing, this is not of the disadvantages of advanced technologies, the technology could be used for different purposes.

Operating Online
My online activity is no one else's business -- neither the NSA nor GCHQ nor any of the other bad actors on the internet have any right to read or record my stuff.  A very high percentage of the internet traffic which is being read and recorded by these bad actors is the traffic of citizens and businesses engaging in lawful activities.  More ordinary people need to read this article and take similar precautions to keep their lawful activities private.

In my humble opinion
And the only chance of the secret services to watch the communication between the terrorists would be to have direct access to the smartphone or computer of the sender or the recipient of the messages. Therefore I do not understand why our politicians always claim more control of the telecommunication infrastructure. It makes not really sense and in my opinion it is just a sign of helplessness. That's not comforting.
