If you’ve researched recent online data hacks and privacy concerns, you’ve probably stumbled across mentions of VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks. VPNs funnel all of your web browsing through an encrypted tunnel that masks your location and provides much-needed protection on free, unsecured WiFi networks. There are a lot of VPN choices out there, but Windscribe VPN is an affordable option that’s easier to use than many of its counterparts.
Windscribe combines a desktop application and browser extension to hide your location (so you can access content available in other countries, or get around geo-restrictions in countries like China that block access to sites like Facebook). You can also torrent freely without worrying about your ISP knocking on your door, and the VPN doubles as an ad-blocker and malware protector. What really sets Windscribe apart is its ease of use: you turn it on from your desktop once, and it runs continuously in the background so you’re always protected. For added privacy, Windscribe has a strict no-logging policy that keeps your browsing history secure, and you don’t even need to share your email address to sign up.
A one-year subscription to Windscribe VPN is on sale right now for only $19. You can also choose a three-year subscription for $24, or go for the lifetime option for $69. If you want an additional 15% off whichever one you choose, enter the coupon code LABORDAY15 at checkout.
