I’m planning a roadtrip in west USA.
I haven’t really booked or planned, thus I’m going to get online once I get out of the plane.
I did some basic research, and it seems my phone is not supported by US carriers.
The only other option for me is to rely on (public/hotel/unsecured) wifi networks.
Entering my credit card details on unsecured networks poses a big risk and I’m thinking about how to avoid these risks.
VPN with killswitch came to my mind.
One option is to subscribe a vpn service (paying for it is not an issue here), such as NordVPN, pia or something else. I don’t really care about tracking for now (if they do). My main concern is security.
Another one is own vpn - my raspberry pi finally found its use, running pivpn with 2048 bit encryption. Accessible via duckdns due to my dynamic public ip address.
Do you think that the pivpn is secure enough, or should I go for commercial vpn service.
Alternatively, could you recommend me how to get online in us? (perhaps, there is some carrier I do not know about )
