Protect yourself this Back to School season with 50% or more off all IPVanish VPN subscriptions

Now through August 18, you can save over 50% on any VPN plan offered by IPVanish (opens in new tab). This is a Back to School special, but anyone can get in on the deal, not just those headed back to school this fall. The plans start at $5 for one month, $4.50 a month for three months, or $3.25 a month for the first year. The latter is a huge 73% off. Whichever deal you pick, that's the price you'll pay over the course of the first billing cycle. The rates will return to normal after that, but you'll probably be sold on the benefits by then. IPVanish also has a seven-day money back guarantee, so there's no harm in trying it out.

To celebrate Back to School, IPVanish is discounting all subscription plans from its monthly membership to its annual offering. There's no better time to sign up. (opens in new tab)

You may or may not have considered using a VPN before, but they are super useful for our internet-connected lives. If you spend any time at all banking or shopping online, or even surfing on public Wi-Fi hotspots at your favorite coffee shop, you could benefit from a VPN. Installing a VPN helps cloak your internet activity in anonymity and stops you being tracked across the web for advertising, having your traffic intercepted, or running into malicious sites. They are also great if you want to access content that is blocked in your region.

IPVanish's VPN service offers a network of over 1,300 servers in 75+ locations worldwide, unlimited P2P traffic, powerful apps for Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and even Fire TV (opens in new tab), as well as a speedy connection. Your subscription also allows for simultaneous use on up to 10 devices, which is more than most other providers. IPVanish uses 256-bit AES encryption and doesn't keep any traffic logs, either.

Regularly you'd pay up to $10 monthly for IPVanish, so it's well worth snagging a subscription (opens in new tab) from just $3.25 per month while you can. There's a 7-day money-back guarantee if you change your mind.

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.
