Due to the recent Cambridge Analytica data-sharing fiasco and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s ensuing testimony before Congress, online privacy is once again a hot topic of discussion. This is hardly the first time that Facebook and other internet companies have come under scrutiny for alleged violations of users’ privacy (and it probably won’t be the last), but this latest example has only served to highlight how our laws have been slow to catch up with the rapidly changing ways in which information is shared on the internet.

Congress is considering legislation to regulate how our data is handled online, but this is only one aspect of the larger privacy debate, and if this is a concern to you, then it’s time to consider using a virtual private network. Granted, a good VPN won’t stop websites like Facebook from merely collecting and sharing your information — you need to take steps to prevent that yourself — but a service like VPN Unlimited can protect you in a myriad of other ways by masking your IP address and encrypting your connection.

By encrypting your traffic and routing it through private servers, a VPN keeps prying eyes off of your sensitive information and hides your IP address from tracking websites, advertisers, and nosy internet service providers. VPN Unlimited is also highly useful when using public Wi-Fi hot spots, which are often unsecured and are therefore prime targets for hackers. It’s great for travel as well, letting you choose a custom IP address for bypassing regional data restrictions (such as for streaming services) and for routing connections around firewalls in censorship-happy countries like China.

VPN Unlimited works on iOS, Android, and Windows smartphones and tablets, along with Mac, Windows, and Linux computer operating systems, resulting in compatibility across virtually all of your devices. Along with enhanced privacy and online security, VPN Unlimited gives you limitless bandwidth — no caps on your traffic, including for data-heavy applications like peer-to-peer services — and fast speeds via 1,000-plus high-speed servers. These servers are spread across more than 50 locations in various countries throughout Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, and South America.

Monthly subscription fees for these services can be a turnoff, but if you’ve been considering a VPN, you can currently get a lifetime subscription to VPN Unlimited from the DT Shop for a one-time payment of $39. A monthly VPN Unlimited subscription normally costs around $18 per month, so $39 for a lifetime subscription is a great deal if you want to protect your privacy without the hassle and cost of recurring fees. If you’re not sure that you need lifetime access, then a three-year VPN Unlimited subscription is available for only $30.

Buy it from the DT Shop for $39
