How to forget about such threats

Suppose you are tired of the daily online threats associated with hacker attacks, data leaks, viruses, phishing, spam, and many other things. In that case, it is best to choose an alternative to the centrally controlled internet. For example, use the decentralized Utopia P2P network. Utopia is an anonymous, private ecosystem – a private internet connection on the internet.

The entire network operates on the principle of peer-to-peer architecture; that is, there is no central server for storing data. Instead, each user has their own cryptographic container and is both a user and a server at the same time.

The ecosystem has several tools for messaging, data transfer, online payments, games, etc. In addition, there is a separate browser that does not track IP addresses or online activity of users so that it can never be compromised later.
