VPN deals – how to pick the right one
Short for virtual private network, a VPN is an app that masks your location, identity, and IP address while surfing the Internet. Although VPN deals vary wildly, practically every provider offers VPN deals that help lower the price of a VPN subscription.
There are dozens of VPN deals to pick from on any given day, but if you're unsure which one is right for you, the best thing to do is find out what you want your VPN for. Then, pick the VPN service that best fulfils that need.
If you want basic protection while online, our list of the best cheap VPN services should help. Likewise, if you want a client to get access to Netflix content from around the world, our guide to the best Netflix VPN should do the trick.
When shopping for VPN deals, remember that the savings are typically greater when you sign up for a year or more of service. Also, remember to verify how many devices your subscription covers. Some VPN deals will let you protect five or even more devices, so it's worth making sure to choose a provider that delivers the amount you need.
What's the best VPN deal right now?
For sheer price, we think PureVPN's Cyber Monday deal is the best on the market, at just $1.32 a month for five years. However, if you want to go with a bigger name, NordVPN, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are all good value – Nord is $3.71 a month, Express is $6.67 a month, and Surfshark is just $2.49 a month.
