Secure Your Online Financial Details With a VPN

By Gizmodo UK on at

Preventing fraud has always been a difficult task for banks and other financial institutions but our bank cards could soon come with a screen to help deter fraud.  As a consumer, preventing online fraud is always a concern as well as protecting your credentials and other sensitive information. By using a VPN to connect to the Internet, you can improve your security online and make it harder for cyber attackers to obtain your financial details.

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 improving our own security online:

VyprVPN has over 700 servers across more than 70 locations with 200,000+ shared IP addresses available for its users.  This VPN offers very fast performance along with unlimited data usage, an auto-connect option and increased security thanks to the company’s own Chameleon protocol and VyprDNS.  VyprVPN is also running a promotion where new customers can get 25% off its annual plans.

  1. Buffered VPN - Great Performance at $99 per year

This VPN supports up to five simultaneous connections and provides its users with impressive speeds and low latency.  Buffered VPN also has clearly written terms of service and the company does not keep any logs on its customers.  This service currently only offers desktop clients but detailed instructions are provided for those who wish to get it running on their mobile devices.  Buffered VPN will also refund users who have used its VPN for less than 10 hours after signing up.
