While there are countless bags, cases or other accessories to help you protect your new laptop, how do you keep its contents safe online while working in public or on a vacation? By using a VPN to connect to the internet, you can help keep your devices secure and their content from being accessed on any network you connect to, whether it be public or private.
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 the best deals we found for keeping your new laptop safe online:
