As essential as they are on the web, virtual private networks (VPNs) can end up being pretty costly when you look at what you pay over time. Most providers’ plans cost anywhere from $2 to $12 per month, which doesn’t sound too bad. But when you realize you’re in it for the long haul, it ends up being just another monthly expense in a long list of subscription fees.
Now until May 24th, however, you can save big on the following VPNs. Use the code VPN20 at checkout and slash an extra 20% off the already discounted prices. You’ll end up paying as little as $40 for a lifetime subscription.
Surfshark, which is Mashable’s pick for best overall cheap VPN, is based in the British Virgin Islands and shines in value and functionality. It offers unlimited simultaneous connections for the ultimate browsing and streaming freedom in your household. You can connect to 3,200 different servers in 65 different countries and basically throw an invisibility cloak over your entire internet presence, no matter where you are in the world. It also features AES-256 encryption and features like MultiHop and CleanWeb. A $430 value, you can get a three-year subscription on sale for only $67.19 with the code VPN20.
Surfshark One gives you access to the VPN, Antivirus, Search, and Alert tools all in one single account. The Antivirus scans and protects your devices from viruses, malware, malicious files, documents, and apps. Meanwhile, Surfshark Search is a powerful search tool that only displays organic results (no ads) and Alert acts as a smart tool that alerts you to personal information leaks on the web. Together, these tools work to give you ultimate protection online.
