There are a lot of security threats on the internet, both in the public and the private sector. Your Internet service provider could be monitoring your connection, the government could be monitoring your connection, hackers between you and the website or service you’re communicating with could be listening. The potential problems are virtually limitless.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a secure tunnel that diverts and encrypts your traffic between you and the VPN provider. It provides an important layer of security which, in combination with other precautions, could save you a great deal of time, money, and legal complications.

I use Private Internet Access for my VPN needs. They have a convenient smart phone app, keep no logs, allow up to 5 devices online at a time, and they accept Bitcoin – for that extra layer of protection.

But don’t take my word for it. Shop around and choose from any of these fine vendors. (ProXPN actually pays me more, I only push PIA because I have experience with them)

    I clicked on your link for Private Internet Access in your above paragraph for the 1 year subscription. I’m not sure if you were awarded anything as I was not asked to enter a promo code. Hope I was able to support.

      This is the expected behavior, it should appear seamless to you. I have no way of confirming who’s purchase is providing me with a commission, but I do see a buy today, which I presume to be yours. Thanks!

  • Just signed up, Chris. Figured I’d use your affiliate commission. I’ve seen several of my friends use this one.

    When me wife, who isn’t very technically inclined, started talking about the bill that passed Congress and asked if we need a VPN (even though I had to explain what one is), I figured it was time to pull the trigger on getting one.
