VPN sale: Save a scarily good 85% with PureVPN this Halloween

Protect your browsing from online bogeymen with these super-slashed VPN package

Of all the products you might have been thinking of picking up in the Halloween sales, we doubt a discounted VPN service was among them. But if you are looking for a decent VPN to safeguard your personal information against those online ghouls and monsters, then our advice is not to hang on until Black Friday or Cyber Monday. That’s because PureVPN is currently offering an incredible 85% off its five-year plan.

You’ll find PureVPN on our round-up of the Best VPN services, where we called out its high levels of performance and the fact that (when we tested) it could still stream US Netflix: always a benchmark of a decent service. This is a plan that usually costs just over £8.50 ($10.95) per month. But now? It’s a mere £1.28 ($1.65) per month. That’s a serious saving – and it’s one you can enjoy all the way until 2024.

What is a VPN?

VPN stands for ‘virtual private network’. This, as the name most probably suggests, is a closed network that uses either a public network or the internet to connect users outside of main network traffic. What does this mean in plain terms? That you’re able to send data back and forth across the internet with another source as if they were connected on the same local network.

It’s not just for increased privacy and security that lots of people invest in VPN services. Because VPNs can suggest that you’re browsing in an entirely different location on the planet than you actually are, you can access sites that are region-specific, such as US Netflix or Hulu. (Netflix, it should be said, is getting very good at cracking down on these bypassing tricks.) In countries with authoritarian governments, it’s even how citizens access banned social media platforms like Facebook and Tinder.

Whatever your reason for picking up a VPN service, don’t delay in buying PureVPN’s five-year plan if you’re interested – this special offer ends on Sunday 3 November.
