Everyone agrees that cable should be canceled. There is frankly no good reason that watching TV should cost so much money and involve so many restrictions. Even if you’ve already cut the cord and moved to streaming services like Hulu or Netflix, or “traditional” television isn’t really your thing at all, you’re still facing limits when it comes to content like live events (could it BE more difficult to watch sports??) and video from around the world. Not to mention, these streaming companies, along with your internet service provider, are collecting data about what you’re doing and when, which for a lot of folks is undesirable or an offensive violation of privacy. That’s where setting yourself up with a VPN comes in incredibly handy.

Hola VPN Plus is a much-loved service with over one million 4.5-star reviews on Google Play, 300k+ 5-star reviews via Google Chrome, and over 210 million users across the globe. Sounds like a good place to start your battle against censorship, especially because it’s on sale with an extra price drop right now.

Shielding yourself with a virtual private network like Hola will allow you to watch absolutely any TV show, movie, live game, concert, still-bizarre Zoom-based pandemic special event, or whatever else tickles your fancy that’s currently blocked by geographic restrictions. By masking your IP address with one from a remote server, your ISP will think you’re actually located in another geographical area, protecting your privacy by hiding your identity and using state-of-the-art encryption and security protocols like IKEv2/IPsec, PPTP/L2TP, DES3, and AES256.

Not only does Hola VPN offer the freedom to access any website, application, or content while keeping your activities safe, secure, and private, but it also overcomes censorship, enables open browsing, and allows secure implementation of tasks. Another bonus of having a VPN? It makes using questionable public Wi-Fi far less dubious.

Though some VPNs slow down your connection speed, Hola provides excellent performance using split-tunneling technology. You can fully enjoy any content from any place at any time, without annoying lagging issues. It’s easy to set up and configure yourself on up to five devices, but if you get stuck there’s 24/7 customer support to help you out. 

Normally on sale for $49.99, the Hola VPN Plus: Lifetime Subscription is available now on a price drop for only $34.99, a savings of 95% on the MSRP.

Do you have your stay-at-home essentials? Here are some you may have missed.
