RE: VPN and NetGear Armor Protection

Questions to the Community

 

1st things 1st...A VPN is to hide:
1. Your IP Address
2. Your Geo-Location
3. Your Traffic
4. Your VPN Usage *(Maybe)
So the point is to hide you, but let you go anywhere on the web.
Now that I can go anywhere, which anyone can do without a VPN, just not hidden.

 

For me, The question of protection filtering must come into play.
At the moment I'm using ExpressVPN on a month's trial.
Using a web filter i.e. OpenDNS has worked in the past.
Combbining the two would work for me.
And yes I know This would break the privacy of a VPN.
OpenDNS will know the domains visited on my network.
*ExpressVPN will already know the domains visited on my network.

 

I need to protect my little ones while they are on the web, savvy is not their forte.
Yes I could build my own VPN but I do not want to be the one constantly updating
and blocking the bad sites when OpenDNS or router protection software has a team doing that part.

 

With all that said.....
Q. Is any one using a VPN in conjuction with NetGear Armor?
Q. Is any one using a VPN in conjuction with OpenDNS?
Q. If so how do you have it setup?
