With US elections next week, everyone is writing about election security. A few samples: Associated Press looks at election tech vendors, Washington Post looks at the Ukraine story that preceded 2016 elections, and PC Mag covers everything from Guccifer 2.0 to 2016 results to today’s election security landscape. Axios has some analysis on Russia’s 2016 social media influence campaign agenda.

I don't know since when VPN extensions have become popular, but VPN extensions should actually be called proxy extensions. The underlying involves no VPN but proxy, yet they claim they are as secure and private as a regular VPN.
