The Thesis

Back in 2005, at the age of 16 years old, Jack Cator established HideMyAss in Norfolk, England. The company currently provides free and robust virtual private network or VPN solutions to help personal and corporate internet users stop their online invaders, protect their internet connections while using public wifi, and encrypt their VPN for further data protection.

The Hook

  • Firstly, HideMyAss leverage its VPN solutions to help internet users stop their invaders, which includes governments and companies.
  • Secondly, the company enables its users to browse safely while using public hotspots
  • Lastly, the Jack Cator led organization offers an end-to-end VPN encryption that says it all.

How to Stop Your Invaders

First of all, internet users have many invaders, in particular, governments and companies. These organizations, including governments, source and gather billions of data using IP address, search engines, social media networks, online accounts, cookies, online fingerprint, and so on.


Jack Cator, chief executive offier, HideMyAss, said, “You and your browsing history are a goldmine of data and there are a lot of people who want your nuggets. Governments want to know what you’re doing, marketers want to know how to make you spend money, and there are bad dudes out there who just want to figure out how to take it. It’s a privacy nightmare.”

For example, the likes of today’s Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Microsoft are reported to have a mountain of data worth the ballpark of $3 trillion as of 2017. In addition, the fingerprint of an internet user is all over the internet, unless such user usually wears gloves like Jack Cator himself.

Albeit there are various solutions to prevent this — which includes using incognito, DoNotTrackRequest, anonymous email, HTTPS, and others, the HideMyAss VPN is a one-stop solution that does all the boring work for its users.

How to Hide Your Wifi

In the second place, HideMyAss protects people from criminal hackers and invaders, especially when using publicly accessible Wifi in places like hotels, cafes, restaurants, and so on. Without mincing words, people do really enjoy utilizing free hotspots in any of the aforementioned places, however, their privacy is only guaranteed if the hotspots use encryption, which they usually don’t, as a result, this exposes everything that’s being done online.


Jack Cator continued, “The majority of 26 million public Wi-Fi users are unaware that they’re open to hacking, identity theft and fraud? And that’s not the only worrying statistic we found. We conducted research to explore the dangers millions of users face when they connect to public wifi hotspots.”

HideMyAss allows its users to keep their firewall up, set their computer to avoid connection with wifi networks automatically, and only use password-protected networks. Moreover, the virtual private network or VPN solutions provided HideMyAss takes the hassle out of being safe and secure on publicly accesible wifi connections.

How to Encrypt Your Privacy

At long last, HideMyAss does understand vividly that Transport Layer Security or TLS is not enough for VPN encryption. For example, it can easily be spotted if a website uses the symmetric cryptography to protect its data.


Jack Cator added, “Let’s say you’re at the airport and you missed your flight because you were too busy chugging some Starbucks. Because you lack a sense of self-responsibility, you decide to connect to the open Wi-Fi so you can complain on the airport’s Facebook page. But if you forgot to turn on your VPN before doing that, anyone else on that network could track what you’re doing and what you’re typing.”

Although TLS is good enough for dealing with phishers, outsiders, and other shizzles, however, it is never up to the standard to avoid being snooped by bad actors, which includes government surveillance. As a result, the company provides an end-to-end VPN encryption that implements the aymmetric algorithm.
