Tutorial on setting up a VPN with Raspberry Pi via BBC
Eyes are everywhere online.
The websites you visit often track where you came from and watch where you head off to next.
A VPN – or virtual private network – helps you browse the internet more anonymously by routing your traffic through a server that is not your point of origin.
It is a bit like switching cars to shake off someone who is tailing you.
There are plenty of companies offering services with varying degrees of security and varying degrees of cost, but if you are willing to roll your sleeves up and get technical with some basic coding and a £30 Raspberry Pi computer, you can build your own VPN server at home.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
