How to safeguard your data with a VPN

Keep your data safe by signing up to one of these super VPN services

Backing up your data just got a whole lot easier thanks to WD’s new MyCloud Home that can be configured to house up to 16TB of local storage but what about when it comes to protecting your data online?  By using the best VPN to connect to the Internet, you can add an additional layer of security that will help protect all of your important data on both private and public networks.  

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.

These are the best deals we found for protecting our data across all of our devices:
