We at aFreeCountry.com believe in using the best security avaliable. We could get a security certificate from a certificate seller, but the best encryption we have seen available from one of these sellers is 256 bit encryption even though 2048 bit encryption is available. We self sign our own certificate because we use 2048 bit encryption. It is much more secure and keeps prying eyes from knowing what you are viewing on our site.
You can feel safe browsing our site because we are using the best available encryption. No matter what the NSA is claiming, they cannot crack this encryption.
