New Section - Online Security!

Welcome to the new online security section!

I want to start by saying that we don’t just claim to be safe, we have gone out of our way to make sure we are using levels of security we have not seen on any other canna forum.

But it can't hurt to have some of the more tech savvy members share some ideas and good practices to use online. So here is a whole section for our GR420 nerds, enjoy!

Get a VPN ( says him not on one atm ) - if using multiple devices consider a DD-WRT or tomato etc compatible router. Connect to your main router via eth and make sure you use diff wifi channels! Any device thats doing dodgy stuff, connect to second router. If using it for videos etc make sure you get one with a fast processing speed.

Don't automatically trust someone who's joined, just because you recognise the name from another site. It could be someone else.

One always measures friendships by how they show up in bad weather.
