If you’re using social media, time to pay for the privilege…at least, if you live in Uganda. Earlier this month, the African nation started charging all of its citizens every time they log into a social media platform.
Of course, every time someone builds a better mousetrap, their opponents build a faster mouse. To get around Uganda’s new law, tech-savvy users there have started signing up for VPN service, essentially cloaking themselves from view of communications companies levying the tax.
Your takeaway from all this is that even if you’re not a Ugandan, VPNs have loads of inventive uses beyond being one of the most secure online defenses available. Right now, you can get that level of protection for yourself with this limited time offer from TNW Deals — a two-year subscription to NordVPN for just $69, an 80 percent savings.
Over 1 million Internet users worldwide use NordVPN, which also sports sterling reviews from outlets like PC World, TechRadar, CNET and PC Mag.
That’s because NordVPN offers a military grade 2048-bit double encryption data path, allowing all of your information to remain staunchly protected from anyone from cyber-thieves and internet watchdogs to government agencies and service providers.
NordVPN’s vast global network of over 3,500 servers in more than 60 countries make it one of the world’s largest networks. That allows you to connect from virtually any point on the globe completely anonymously with a cyber cloak over your IP address and any other identifiable or sensitive information.
On top of crack security and a fast network connection, NordVPN seals the deal with a host of killer features, including various connection options, a Kill Switch that automatically drops your traffic if your network link drops and DNS leak protection. Meanwhile, NordVPN proudly declares itself a log-free provider, meaning even they have no record of any of your web activity.
Two years of NordVPN service would usually cost you nearly $350, so find out why they’re so popular at a rock-bottom price of just $69. Or, you can extend your savings with a three-year plan for just $99.
