How to secure your home network with a VPN

Check out our VPN deals of the week

Connected devices are quickly taking off and the smart home of the future feels as if it’s just around the corner with wireless security cameras letting us check in on our living room and smart speakers answering our questions.

As our homes become more connected though, protecting them from external threats becomes even more important.

By using the best VPN to connect to the Internet, you can secure all of the devices on your home network while protecting your privacy online at the same time.

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 home networks from outside threats:
