Prevent Third Parties From Accessing Your Devices With a VPN

By Gizmodo UK on at

It has become a lot easier to ensure that your messages and even your calls are encrypted for added security. By encrypting your communications, you make it much more difficult for third parties to snoop on you.  However, other users can still gain access to information sent from your computer or smartphone if they are on the same network.  By using a VPN to connect to the Internet, you can encrypt all of the data your computer sends across the web and greatly improve your security.

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 some of the best deals we found for protecting all of our devices:
