INTRODUCTION
The internet age has brought with it so many perks and benefits. We can now connect to anywhere with just a click. This is a great thing as information access and dissemination is now as easy as it can get. With the ease of connectivity also comes an issue, issue of phishing, hack, data theft etc. Users of the Internet don't bother about these security risks, maybe because they don't yet know the harm and damage this can cause. Let's look at the problems facing Internet users.

PROBLEMS.

  • SECURITY - Safety of data that passes through our connections aren't as safe as we'd like and hope for. The use of Vpn has been touted as a solution to this. But even VPNs aren't safe enough. We are still prone to attacks, hacks and malware.

  • SPEED - The paths which our Internet passes from our providers to us decreases the speed along the way. This is why our providers show a different speed of downloads and uploads while we get something far less. The speed with which pages load while we browse is also relatively slow compared to how it should be. This is because of the numerous trackers embedded in most websites.

These are just a few of the issues arising when we use the Internet. HoneyPod aims to solve these.
