Although this sounds a bit paranoid, it makes perfect sense for some of us, especially those who frequent airports, coffee shops, and other locations where public WiFi is the connection of choice.
I spent some time visiting their site to make sure (to me at least) that disconnect.me is the real deal and not some scam to lure the unsuspecting to an unsafe place.
It all looks legit (to me at least).
The strange part is that my Firefox browser didn’t want to let me install disconnect. Curious. But given all the recent “do not track” and other cookie disrupting discussions, I am not surprised.
Disconnect might want to get the browser folks on their side – that is if they aren’t getting in the way of some recent browser capabilities we all might need to know more about.
The Beat Goes On!
