1. Psnpatch plugin is the best tool you can use although officially DEX is not supported. The only alternative is SEN Enabler plugin. 2. A VPN service requires a subscription. It provides a measure of anonymity to Internet usage. The principle is simple but explaining VPN in details is outside the scope of this post. This is only a rough and oversimplified explanation. After you subscribe, the VPN provider will give you some connection details so you can login to its servers using encrypted communications. Once you setup your PC/smartphone to use VPN, all Internet communication on your device is channelled through to the VPN server which forwards requests/replies from/to your device. Basically when a Web server on the Internet receives a request from your PC, it gets no information about your PC because it receives the request from the VPN server & not from your device directly. So for the instance if you are in Amsterdam connected to a VPN based in London & browsing psx-place.com, the server hosting psx-place.com will be communicating with London only. It won't have a clue about your PC in Amsterdam. VPN services are highly recommended for certain things such as torrenting or deep web browsing to mitigate risks. However, nowadays, it makes sense to use VPN services for just about everything if privacy matters to you. Note that VPN services address a number of common privacy issues but it's not an all in one guaranteed privacy solution. Privacy can still be invaded even when using a VPN if you are not careful. There are lots of providers offering various features, you would need to read up on the topic, check comparative reviews then shop around for am offer appropriate to your needs.
