Secure your smartphone with these VPN deals

These days carrying a smartphone with us has become ubiquitous and preventing companies from collecting our personal data has become increasingly more difficult.

Your smartphone already knows a lot about you but a VPN can help protect you further by helping to limit the data your phone manufacturer can collect.
 Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in Dollars for the sake of simplicity.

Bear in mind that when you click through to the actual deals, you may find the prices automatically displayed in pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.

Here are a few of the best deals we found for keeping our smartphones secure:
