Which Is better for privacy? Using a free VPN or surfing the web as normal?
I can't afford to buy a paid vpn service. So is this safe for using a free vpn service? or I should suft the web as normal?

Is there any way to restrict access to the files loaded through Active Storage?
I'm on Rails 5.2 and thinking about migrating to Active Storage from Paperclip.
Till now everything looks pretty awesome, but I can't find any instructions of keeping users' privacy when sharing loaded files.
Say I want to share family photos with friends and not all the Web.
In Paperclip I could specify
:pathto make something like
"photos/:id/:filename"(and then make some further controller stuff). But Active Storage doesn't have such feature out of the box.
Maybe there's any other way to restrict access to the storage?
"Preparing logs for uploading"
In my Android Studio catlog, I've noticed that these calls show up quite often:
11-09 09:19:19.671 19615-19631/? I/PlayCommon:  com.google.android.play.a.h.e(262): Preparing logs for uploading
11-09 09:19:19.681 19615-19631/? W/PlayCommon:  com.google.android.play.a.h.a(656): No account for auth token provided
11-09 09:19:19.682 19615-19631/? I/PlayCommon:  com.google.android.play.a.h.a(503): Connecting to server: https://play.googleapis.com/play/log?format=raw&proto_v2=true
11-09 09:19:19.683 19615-19631/? E/PlayCommon:  com.google.android.play.a.h.a(533): Failed to connect to server: java.net.UnknownHostException: Unable to resolve host "play.googleapis.com": No address associated with hostname
This happens even when wifi is off. My concerns are privacy and performance (I noticed these calls before a freeze, which might or might not be related).
I would like to disable this automatic log sending to google. Ideally, stopping it altogether rather than blocking it with a firewall.
If it's not possible to do this from within my app, I'm also open to other ways of accomplishing it (rooting the device, etc).
Also, if someone could explain what these are and what they send, I would appreciate learning.
P.S. I'm on Marshmallow, in case that's useful to know.
Apologies, as it is not programming related... I've made a mistake and will my ISP screw me over
I accidentally came across some animal pornography. I saw it, and with shock, I started to look further (clicking at least 3 links by now) and now I am anxious the police will come to my door. Will they? And what's the worst that can happen?
