From advertisers to hackers, it seems like everyone is spying on you these days. Fortunately, protecting yourself online isn't expensive. Stack Social is currently offering a two-year subscription to London Trust Media's Private Internet Access for $59.95. That's over 60 percent off its traditional price of $166.
In its simplest form, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides you with a secure connection to browse the Internet anonymously. While you may think this is a tool for people who do dicey things on the Internet, the truth is these days we could all benefit from using a VPN. And the more time you spend online, the higher your chances of being spied on.
Private Internet Access works by masking your IP address and encrypting all of your browser traffic through a network of international servers. In doing so, it also blocks ads, trackers, and malware. In addition, the VPN provides unrestricted and uncensored access to the entire Internet regardless of restrictions that may be set by your ISP.
Even if you think your data isn't being collected, chances are that it is. Companies can paint clear picture of you, the websites you visit, and the types of products you buy online all based on your browsing history. A VPN like Private Internet Access can protect you from data mining and keep your identity veiled.
