Sharing is caring, as the saying goes.
That means if you think of yourself as a caring individual then you need to back it up with actions. You need to be sharing your food, sharing closet space, and even sharing your VPN.
The whole food and closet situation might seem like a step too far, and the prospect of sharing a VPN might be confusing, but it really isn’t with PureVPN. Any user who purchases a subscription with PureVPN can now gift a one-month free trial of the service to a friend. It’s as simple and easy as that.
There are a few points to remember before you get busy sharing, though. Only PureVPN’s subscribed users can send these invitations out, users who have redeemed the gift cannot then send out invites, and invite links are only valid for 30 days. Obviously, the free gifts cannot be sent to existing users, and once an offer is rejected it cannot be resent to the same recipient. All pretty straightforward, don’t you think? Read more…

There are a lot of VPN services out there, and they all work hard to keep your data protected, your activity anonymous, and the internet unrestricted. They don’t all have a massive bear as their mascot though, and that’s an important thing to consider.
TunnelBear is the only VPN service that has a website littered with both cute and angry bears. There’s absolutely no competition when it comes to how many bears each VPN service has. TunnelBear is the clear winner. It also offers unlimited data, tunnelling on any of five computers or mobile devices simultaneously, around the clock private browsing, and blocking of website trackers. And bears — don’t forget the bears. Read more…

There are a number of reasons why you might want to start using a virtual private network or VPN. VPNs offer many benefits, like getting around geographic restrictions for streaming content.
They can also help protect your privacy and make browsing more secure (though it’s always a good idea to vet your VPN provider’s claims carefully — some do a better a job than others).
But choosing the right VPN for you can be a daunting task. With so many options, you’ll want to think carefully about which features are most important to you and how much you’re willing to pay. Read more…

If you’re a movie buff or enjoy nothing more than binge-watching box sets, chances are you’ve heard of Kodi. Kodi is a free, open-source software media player app formerly known as XBMB that acts as a hub for all your music, movies, and TV content, which can be shared across all your devices.
Benefits include being able to turn your gadgets into a part of a digital streaming hub, accessing all sorts of file formats and searching for content in one place, watching geo-blocked content, and adding lots of customisable features via add ons such as iPlayer, which are needed for streaming content. Of course, there are drawbacks too, but most of these can be circumnavigated with a VPN (Virtual Private Network), which encrypts data leaving a device and makes it impossible for others to see what you’re downloading.

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is an essential service nowadays — particularly if you want to enjoy unrestricted access to your favourite content from anywhere in the world.
A VPN can get around content restrictions and censorship to deliver unlimited access to video, music, social media, and more. If that’s important to you, then a VPN should be too. The problem arises when it comes to picking a VPN. There are a lot of options out there and each service has a different set of advantages and disadvantages.
NordVPN is widely regarded as one of the premier VPN options, and that’s probably down to its reputation for being one of the most secure services. It has loads of security tools, such as shared IP addresses and a zero logs policy. It also uses military-grade encryption and DNS leak protection to safeguard users’ IP addresses. It’s also on sale, which is another bonus. Read more…
