For most of us, a soft­ware-based vir­tual pri­vate net­work (VPN) is all that’s needed to cir­cum­vent geoblocks and keep on­line ac­tiv­ity un­der wraps. There are some no­table hard­ware in­com­pat­i­bil­i­ties for soft­ware-based VPNs though, us­ing games con­soles that don’t sup­port na­tive VPNs for ex­am­ple, which can leave you ex­posed. The Cutu de­vice is a thin por­ta­ble VPN router that’ll al­low you to chan­nel hard­ware through a VPN. With three LAN ports, a WAN con­nec­tion and two 2.4GHz 802.11/ bgn WIFi bands, you can con­nect to this AC pow­ered de­vice us­ing ei­ther a wired or wire­less setup. Pair­ing with a VPN ser­vice that claims to hold no com­mu­ni­ca­tion data logs, this 13.5cm hub of­fers a good all-in-one so­lu­tion for shift­ing your IP ad­dress. JB
