If you thought the advent of virus lockdowns and work from home orders was probably sending VPN use through the roof, even you might be surprised at just how right you are. According to a report by researchers at Top10VPN, demand for VPN service skyrocketed by 44 percent during the second half of March and still remains at 22 percent higher than before the COVID-19 outbreak.
And that escalation is happening on top of previous exponential VPN growth, with estimates that over 30 percent of all web users logged in via a VPN even before the recent surge.
Protecting your personal and business data on all your home and mobile devices has never been more critical. And as one of the heritage VPN service providers on the block, a 2-year subscription to Surfshark VPN ($69, 76 percent off) goes a long way toward safeguarding everything you do online.
Surfshark’s network is robust, to say the least. Their service is available through more than 1,200 servers across the globe in over 60 nations, each providing fast, anonymous web service with iron-clad protection. Cloaked in military-grade AES-256-GCM encryption and IKEv2 and OpenVPN protocols, no one from cyber crooks to government watchdogs will ever be able to track your movements.
Meanwhile, that cloak of protection also allows access to streaming and other online content anywhere in the world, even around frustrating global geo-restrictions. Your Surfshark shield allows you to access Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, or any of your other streaming favorites, even when you’re outside U.S. borders. Or, you can sample what’s available around the world, but blocked out of U.S. markets. Just log into a server in that region — and your IP will make you appear just like a local.
Of course, Surfshark didn’t just win the approval of Apple App Store and Google Play customers with meat and potatoes. They also provide a whole host of special features like the ad-blocking, malware-defeating abilities of CleanWeb; a kill switch that instantly cuts your connection and shields your data if your link to the web drops suddenly; and a bunch more.
Surfshark is also a no logging provider, meaning they never track or keep any record of your movements online, ensuring complete and total anonymity at all times.
A 2-year subscription to Surfshark VPN is a $290 value, but it’s available now for only $69, a whopping 76 percent off, with this latest deal.
