VPN provider Surfshark is holding its most generous ever summer sale.
From now until July 4th you’ll be able to get two free months when you buy a standard two-year VPN plan, along with Surfshark Antivirus for free.
Before we get into the ins and outs of Surfshark Antivirus, which recently secured certification by the Virus Bulletin, let’s remind ourselves why it’s so important (and useful) to have a VPN running on your computer and smartphone.
In a nutshell, privacy. When you go online without a VPN your IP address is visible to anybody who cares to look for it. And if they’ve got your IP address they’ve got all sorts of other information, including your location, browsing habits, and so on.
A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, routes your traffic through servers all over the world. This gives you a totally anonymous IP address located in the nation of your choice. As far as those pesky snoops are concerned, you’re a ghost.
Whether or not you realize it, a VPN is just as important for your privacy as the curtains in your windows, the lock on your phone, and the restrictions that you apply to your social media accounts.
But privacy isn’t the only thing a VPN gives you. A Surfshark subscription will also turn you into a carefree international citizen of the internet, able to access game servers, Netflix libraries, and betas all over the world. That alone is worth the price of entry.
Surfshark Antivirus is just a fantastic added bonus, bolstering your defenses with real-time protection for Windows and MacOS users, scheduled scans, and industry-leading protection against the perils of the internet.
On top of that, Surfshark sends out alerts whenever your personal information appears in an online data breach, and lets you know how many times your passwords have been breached in the past.
