Outside the office, browsing Facebook at home seems like a very personal luxury. In reality, government agencies and advertising networks can track your downtime, not to mention public Wi-Fi stalkers.

HideMyAss! VPN protects you by doing what it says. This highly-rated service throws snoopers off your tail, with servers around the world. The protection comes with no slowdown, and you can even watch geo-restricted content.

The VPN works on all major desktop and mobile platforms, along with games consoles and smart TVs. Your traffic is rerouted to disguise your location and IP address, making it impossible for anyone to trace your connection. There are 930 servers in 190 countries to choose from, meaning you can always get fast browsing speed.

This also means you can “pop up” anywhere in the world to access local content. You can enjoy free content on iPlayer and Hulu, and access your subscription services from overseas. HideMyAss! offers unlimited bandwidth, and you can run it on any two devices simultaneously.

Right now, you can sign up for two years of service for just $69.99 via the Daily Dot Store. The deal includes premium support and takes $87 off the regular price. Order it here for more secure browsing.
