The recent news that Trump will be allowing US ISPs to sell user data is certainly alarming from a privacy standpoint and now is as good a time as ever to sign up for virtual private network (VPN) if you haven’t already.

By utilizing a VPN to access the internet, you will be able to regain the anonymity and privacy that will be lost once this new bill, one which overturns the FCC’s long standing privacy regulations, goes into effect.

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.

Here are some of the best options we found for protecting ourselves online:

1. IPVanish – From $62.28 per year

IPVanish offers some of the fastest browsing speeds available and is ideal for torrenting and other P2P related traffic.  This service does not log any of its browsing data which ensures that its customers have complete privacy.

IPVanish’s high speeds, well-designed client and its long list of locations warrant its more expensive price.  A 1-year subscription offers the best value and can be had for just $62.28 per year though those wishing to try the service out can do so for as little as $7.99 a month

2. Hotspot Shield – only $140 for lifetime!

Hotspot Shield is a more affordable option though it does lack some of the premium features and server locations of more expensive VPNs.  However, the service excels at helping its users browse privately online, offers support for virtual locations and even supports up to five devices.

Hotspot Shield has a number of subscriptions available and a 1-year subscription will cost $47.88 while a 1-month subscription will cost $11.99.  Interestingly enough a lifetime plan is also available from the company for $139.99.
 

3. TigerVPN – Just $79.99 for 12 months

TigerVPN is a great option for users who are unfamiliar with VPNs and want a service that is straight forward and user friendly.

The service offers apps on both desktop and mobile with support for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS which allows customers to use their VPN from a range of devices.  A 1-year subscription is available for just $79.99 and a monthly subscription costs $11.99 a month.
