It's no surprise Internet traffic is examined by many parties these days: Corporations, Governments, Advertisers, Internet Service Providers and Cyber-Criminals.

Tango creates a private path through the Internet. It's cloud-based and dynamic, so your network path changes all the time.

Internet Service Providers

Your ISP is in a unique position to gather insight about you and your interests. All of your network traffic first passes through them. Every request to DNS or HTTP(S) is seen by them. 86% of the Internet is not encrypted and this gives ISPs a host of data they can collect about you and sell to advertisers.

This is a goldmine for ISPs and Mobile carriers, which is why companies like Verizon purchased AOL and now looking to purchase Yahoo! - both have huge Advertising networks. wafermaking

Using a guest Wi-Fi access point at a cafe, hotel or airport? Does your city or ISP provide Wi-Fi across your community? Wireless access helps in a pinch but it also makes your data and use visible to others.

Wireless network access in these scenarios are typically unencrypted. The barriers are down to make them easier to use. Here is what they typically see - websites you visit, credentials you send out, personally identifiable information about you.

Attackers can also fake websites you trust, making you inadvertently expose your login to sensitive websites you use to them.

Advertisers

Digital advertising is a $100 billion dollar market. It's how most websites pay the bills but that doesn't mean constant tracking is acceptable.

Phones and computers are faster but websites still load slowly, this is because of the number of ad trackers loaded on most websites. And considering that most browsing is performed on mobile devices with expensive data plans, do you really want waste data on an unreasonable amount of tracking?

Nation States

Perhaps the murkiest of topics is that of nation states tracking your network traffic. In some countries that's a serious problem.

Surveillance has a chilling effect on free speech.
