A VPN, or virtual private network, is a service that allows you to connect to a server and run your internet activity through an encrypted “tunnel.” With a VPN, your internet service provider (ISP) and anyone else who might monitor your network connection (hackers, businesses, etc.) aren’t able to see some of the specific details of the data passed through that connection.
So, why would you want to use one of these services? Well, even though it is illegal to provide specific personal details, ISPs are allowed to sell and share aggregated data surrounding the activity of subscriber IP addresses. While a VPN may not give you completely private internet access, it’s a step in the right direction if you want to maintain as much of your internet privacy as possible. These services have grown in popularity recently as legislation surrounding internet privacy has been in the news, so we looked at the top trending VPN provider deals on Slickdeals to break down which one may be right for you.

2. Windscribe VPN
Best Deal Currently: Free (10GB per Month)
There is nothing better than free when it comes to a deal, but, of course, there’s usually a catch. The limits for the Windscribe VPN free service include a connection on only one device, no OpenVPN configurations (sorry Linux users), and access to over 10 countries. The normal free plan also limits your monthly bandwidth to 10GB.
If you would like to lift these restrictions and gain full access to what Windscribe has to offer, you can save 55% off and get a yearly Windscribe Pro VPN Subscription for $49.
3. Private Internet Access VPN Service
Best Deal Currently: $29 for 1 year of service (Reg. $119.40)
Private Internet Access is a popular VPN service that has partnered with Slickdeals to offer a one-year deal for $29 (75% off). You’ll get access on up to ten devices, with more than 3,375 servers in 32 countries and no bandwidth limit. Plus, it works across all major OS platforms.
4.KeepSolid VPN Unlimited
Best Deal Currently: $29.99 for 1 Year (Reg. $59.99)
While $30 for a year of service is a decent deal, it isn’t the best we’ve seen so far for this VPN. A recently expired Frontpage deal brought the lifetime price for this service down to $15, which included 5 devices connected through OpenVPN and 400+ servers in over 80 locations. However, the biggest concern from most Slickdealers was how long the “lifetime” of the company may be. We can’t say for sure, but VPN Unlimited and its parent company, KeepSolid, seems reputable online and according to other Slickdeals users. You can try the VPN risk-free for 7 days with a money-back guarantee.
In terms of privacy, the information that VPN Unlimited collects isn’t much different from many other major VPN providers. It maintains encrypted information about connected devices, connection type, etc. but states that this is only used for technical purposes. This means that there isn’t complete privacy, much like with many other major VPN providers, but it also isn’t on par with the gold standard of VPNs.
Best Deal: $59.99 Annually (Reg. $119.88)
Of the VPNs listed, TorGuard is on the pricier side. However, this service caters well to those who use torrents, which is where the Tor in the name originates from. Whether you choose to pay by month or by year, the features are all the same and include things like:
- Unlimited Speeds and Bandwidth
- Access to 3000+ Servers in Over 50 Countries
- Up to 8 Simultaneous Connections
- Advertisement and Malware Blocking
TorGuard also offers a number of add-ons that may interest frequent users of BitTorrent, like static IPs and DDoS Protected IP addresses. In general, Slickdealers have been satisfied with the service and found the connection speeds fast. One of the few concerns about TorGuard falls under its cosmetics. It’s not the prettiest looking VPN, but it definitely gets the job done. You can try out the service free for 7-days to see if it’s suited to your needs.
