Want to watch the latest episode of Rick and Morty but you’ve been region locked? Want to shop online knowing that your credentials are safe? Want to be anonymous while carousing through the interwebs? Who doesn’t? With a Virtual Private Network (VPN), you’re able to do all these things while protecting your privacy online.

Studies have shown that online shopping and social media usage has increased due to the extended periods of social distancing — don’t we know it. More people are spending time working and studying from home than ever before. Because of this, it’s even more important to be mindful of how your online privacy is affected by your data security. You wouldn’t go outside without a mask (unless you’re a ‘sovereign’), so why would you browse the web without a VPN?

But how do VPNs even work, you ask? It’s actually the easiest way to ensure your privacy is protected while on the net. VPNs encrypt all the data transferred between your device and the internet. Even if your data is intercepted, it would be unreadable to anyone trying to datamine your information. You’re also able to route your internet usage to any country to ensure that no government entities are tracking you.

You didn’t hear it from us but this also allows you to bypass any region restrictions that a website or web service may have. So get more out of your streaming subscriptions by accessing media exclusive to other countries.

You don’t even have to be a tech wiz to use a VPN. Most VPN services are able to provide you with protection just by installing their easy to use apps. So stop browsing the internet unprotected, and start harnessing the power of VPNs today with ExpressVPN — try it free for 30 days. A single subscription provides coverage for all your devices.

If you don’t like it, you’ll be able to get a full refund for your purchase. With this VPN, you’ll be protected from anyone trying to track you or steal your info online.
