Use the code THRIFTERDEALS to take 50% off any of the Anonymous VPN services offered by TorGuard. This deal brings the price down to $4.99 for the monthly service or $29.99 for a year. Anonymous VPN is a subscription service, but you will continue to get the discounted price every time it renews until you end it. That's pretty awesome because it means 50% off for life if you want.
TorGuard is a virtual private network. The internet at large is a really public space, and a lot of times that means your data is being passed around when you don't even know about it. VPNs turn your internet experience into a private one so you can protect yourself and not worry about who is collecting or using your information. No matter which plan you choose, TorGuard services will include access to more than 3,000 servers in 50 countries, up to five simultaneous connections, perfect forward security, advertisement and malware blocking, protection against known leaks, support for all operating systems and devices, and more. You can even add on extras like protection from DDoS attacks.
Even if you aren't generally worried about privacy, which you should be, there are a lot of general use reasons to subscribe to a VPN service. For example, if you play video games or stream online, you can use a VPN to protect your IP address from online trolls. Since VPNs can access servers in multiple countries, you can use them to view content that would not normally be available to you, like YouTube videos or European Netflix. It also keeps ads from targeting you based on your shopping habits and things like that, which can be very disconcerting.
You can try a month of the TorGuard VPN for as little as $5 with the THRIFTERDEALS promo code, and if you like it upgrade the service or keep it at the discounted price. For that low of a cost, it's worth a shot.
