PureVPN lets you secure your Wi-Fi connection and keep prying eyes away from your browsing history. It is also the world’s fastest VPN. You can currently get a two-year subscription of PureVPN for $59 via 9to5Toys Specials.
The service works by routing your data through a masking server, which hides your location and IP address — the ID card of your device. This means that no-one (incl. government agencies, Wi-Fi scammers) can track you down, and you can access region-locked content, such as Hulu and iPlayer. PureVPN is known for being speedy, and unlimited bandwidth means you can stream video to your heart’s content. There are over 550 masking servers around the world to choose from, and a single subscription covers five devices. The apps for Windows, OS X, iOS and Android offer one-click setup, and you can install the service on virtually any internet-connected device, including smart TVs and games consoles. All your browsing traffic is encrypted, and PureVPN provides 24/7 support.
