These VPN deals can help you protect your privacy without breaking the bank

VPN Unlimited

With the recent repeal of ISP (internet service provider) regulations instituted last year by the Federal Communications Commission, you might be wondering how to protect your data from being collected and shared without your consent. You’re not alone. One easy solution is a virtual private network, or a VPN, which channels your internet connection through remote servers and encrypts the data to keep your information away from prying eyes.

A good VPN provider can keep you safe from cybercriminals, as well as nosy ISPs and companies that want to collect and sell your information. A VPN is also useful if you’re on the move a lot, as it protects your devices when connected to public Wi-Fi networks and lets you bypass location-based service restrictions. However, most accounts come with costly monthly fees, so we’ve rounded up some current VPN deals on lifetime subscriptions, along with a couple VPN-friendly devices to help you protect your privacy and save some money.

VPN Unlimited

We’ve featured VPN Unlimited before, and it remains one of our favorites, so it should be no surprise to see it at the top of our list. VPN Unlimited boasts one of the largest relay networks, with more than 1,000 high-speed servers spread across 50-plus countries. You’ll enjoy unlimited bandwidth even when using data-heavy peer-to-peer services, and this VPN client can be active on up to five of your devices simultaneously.

A monthly subscription costs around $18 per month directly from VPN Unlimited, but you can score a lifetime subscription for only $39 from the DT Shop. If you’re not sure a lifetime commitment is for you, you can get a three-year subscription for only $19, which is still a solid deal on a reliable and top-rated VPN service.

Infinity VPN

If the five-device limit of VPN Unlimited isn’t enough to cover all of the devices in your home or office, then Infinity VPN offers the same excellent virtual private network service with a client that can be active on up to 10 computers or mobile devices at a time.

A lifetime subscription to Infinity VPN costs $45 from the DT Shop, only $6 more than the same subscription to VPN Unlimited. Adding more than five devices to your VPN Unliminted plan costs $1 per month per extra device, so Infinity VPN is an ideal option for a larger household or office with more connections you want to keep private.

Already have an active VPN Unlimited subscription? Upgrade to the Infinity plan for a one-time $15 payment.

TigerVPN

If your needs are a bit more basic than what VPN Unlimited and Infinity VPN offer, TigerVPN is another popular option that’s a bit cheaper than the others at only $29 for a lifetime subscription from the DT Shop. TigerVPN allows up to two simultaneous connections and provides unlimited data for everything from Netflix to torrenting. Military-grade encryption keeps your data secure, and the software client works on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS to provide compatibility across most computers and mobile devices.

A monthly subscription to TigerVPN normally costs $12 per month, so $29 for a lifetime subscription is an excellent value if all you need is a simple, no-nonsense virtual private network for one or two users.

Once you’ve subscribed to a virtual private network, you can enhance your security even further by adding the Anonabox Pro router to your setup. The Anonabox combines your VPN connection with Tor relays, routing your data through another network of anonymous nodes for an added layer of protection. You can also use either Tor or your VPN independently depending on your current needs.

The Anonabox is palm-sized and easily fits in your pocket or bag for privacy on the go. Just plug your computer into the unit and then connect to the nearest Wi-Fi network for secure, worry-free browsing no matter where you are. Normally $120, the Anonabox Pro can be had for just $90 from the DT Shop after a tidy $30 (25 percent) discount.

TP-Link TL-R600VPN router

Advanced users are sure to love the flexibility and control of a dedicated VPN router like the

TP-Link TL-R600VPN router

. The VPN software is pre-installed, allowing you to run your service on the router itself instead of your computers or mobile devices. This means any device connected to the router will have its connection on the VPN rather than the open internet.

A VPN router is a great option for larger home or office networks, since you don’t have to install the software client for your virtual private network on every single device one at a time — simply connect to the VPN-enabled router and your data is encrypted and secure. This is a simple solution for using smart TVs, streaming boxes, and gaming consoles with your virtual private network, as you generally cannot install VPN clients on these devices. The TL-R600VPN features four gigabit Ethernet ports for direct connections and a WAN port for integrating the router with your Wi-Fi network.

VPN routers can be expensive, but the TP-Link TL-R600VPN is available for just

after a $26 discount. It’s also available on Newegg for a dollar more.

Best camera deals: Save on DSLR, action cameras, point-and-shoot
Best DSLR cameras for beginners Canon Rebel T7i

While some of the best camera phones can offer you great picture quality, they don't really compare to a dedicated camera. Not only does the latter have more space for more complex hardware, but they also have the option of interchangeable lenses depending on what you need to do. To that end, we've collected some of our favorite camera deals below, especially since cameras can get quite expensive if you want good quality. Be sure to check out drone deals for aerial photography and GoPro deals for action photography. Also, if you're not quite sure what camera body type you should go for, be sure to check our guide on Mirrorless vs. DSLR to get a better sense of what you need.
Best DSLR camera deals

DSLR cameras are bulkier than mirrorless cameras, but they produce high-quality images that will let you capture the most beautiful moments. You'll be able to see directly through the lens with the mirrored optical viewfinder while composing your shot, and you've got your pick among years' worth of lenses, depending on what kind of pictures you want to take. DSLR camera deals are always in demand because they're expensive though, so hurry if you want to pocket the savings from the bargains we've gathered below.

Prime Day 2022 GoPro deals graphic.

Recording your active lifestyle can be a lot of fun, especially if you do sports semi-professionally, and action cameras are perfect for recording all your achievements to share and compete with others. Luckily, the market has boomed lately, and even the best action cameras are pretty well-priced, especially if you go for a bundle that includes accessories. That said, one of the top brands in this space is GoPro, and it has a lot of great options for you to pick from, which is why we've gone out and collected our favorite GoPro deals for you to peruse. If you're interested in capturing action footage aerially, consider drone deals. If you prefer the standard point-and-click, check out our list of the best camera deals.
Best GoPro camera deals
GoPro HERO9 Black (open box) -- $213, was $250

The GoPro HERO9 Black is a bit of an older GoPro at this point, but that certainly doesn't mean that it's geriatric, and the older age means you can get it for a lot cheaper. It has a large front screen for you to work with, and it can take 27MP stills, although the 5k video recording is a little bit pointless on a model like this. It has a larger battery, which is nice, and if you're okay with going for a refurbished or open-box version, then you can save a little cash.

Radclo Mini Drone -- $33, was $63

The Radclo Mini Drone may be affordable, but you won't think that's it's cheap because it's equipped with a 1080p lens that you can operate through the drone's companion app. You can look through its camera for a real-time panoramic view while you take pictures and videos, and it can fly for up to 22 minutes with its pair of 800 mAh batteries. The drone is easy to operate as it only takes the push of a button to have it take off and land, and once you're done using it, it conveniently folds into a compact carrying case.
