VPNs are vital to browsing the web these days, offering protections and also just generally allowing you to access geo-blocked content however you see fit. There’s a whole host to choose from and PC Guide is here to ensure you not only get the best deal, but the best of the best.
We’ve reviewed a VPN previously, the Nord VPN – which you might have seen around YouTube videos – which we highly recommended. However, on Black Friday, they all come out with cracking deals and it can be a bit confusing to sift through them.
Best VPN Deals on Black Friday
Here are the best places to get a VPN during Black Friday, which very often come directly from the source, so you won’t be fumbling through Amazon and storefronts trying to find one or waiting for codes.
We trawl through the murky depths of the internet, attempting to snatch any and all little morsels of deals that we can find for you, bring them into our lovely website and you can then use us to hop between them. Be sure to come back regularly to see all our deals.
What is a VPN?
A VPN is a Virtual Private Network, which effectively takes your outgoing connection, funnels it elsewhere, and then to the intended destination. This helps cover your tracks, but also often ‘tricks’ the destination – Netflix for example – that you belong to the destination you requested. For example, I want to watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi on Netflix, but it’s only available in the US, so I change my VPN settings to convert my outgoing web traffic to a US server, which then pings to Netflix as if I were logged in abroad.
This works with all manner of apps and programs, freeing yourself from the new, slightly locked-off internet.
VPNs work on a subscription fee, but on Black Friday, this usually means that a yearly subscription is often cut down so far that you’d be losing out by not hopping onto the bandwagon.
