People who care about their privacy (which should be everyone) have begun connecting to a VPN everytime they use the internet, but picking the right VPN provider can be a hard task. There are a ton of services out there, and they range in price from free to $100 or more a year. If you haven't already settled into a VPN, today may be the day that you do that.
New customers to IPVanish's service can score a 50 percent discount on its one-year plan with the coupon code BACKTOSCHOOL. This discount drops the price down to just $39 for the first year, meaning you are only paying just over $3 a month to keep your browsing more secure.
Not only is IPVanish's Quick Connect menu suitable for novice users, there's also a host of settings in the background that advanced users will love. There are over 850 servers in more than 60 countries, and you'll be using one of 40,000 shared IP addresses. Tack on a lack of log keeping and secure connection protocols, and you have a very strong option.
This deal is only good until midnight tonight (August 29), so you won't want to wait too long to make the purchase. Be sure to check it out today, and add that extra layer of security while connecting to the internet.
We test and review VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:
1. Accessing a service from another country (subject to the terms and conditions of that service).
2. Protecting your online security and strengthening your online privacy when abroad.
We do not support or condone the illegal or malicious use of VPN services. Consuming pirated content that is paid-for is neither endorsed nor approved by Future Publishing.
