Good News, folks!
Now, there is an excellent FREE VPN option available for your Surface tablet. VyprVPN (by far our favorite VPN provider and one we use every day) is now offering a free plan.
As I am sure you already know, we are big proponents of following good security practices, see post on public Wi-Fi Risks and things you can do to protect yourself, and we highly recommend using a good VPN on open networks.
We have recommended VyprVPN for a while now, because they are reliable, fast, and cheap. But we just learned that they now offer a free plan too – it doesn’t get any cheaper than that!
I love that they are providing this free service to their customers and, if you do not already use a VPN, I highly recommend that you give them a look.
Here is what you get with the Free plan:
- 500 MB data usage/month
- 2 Simultaneous Connections
- NAT Firewall
If you run out of data on the free plan, you can upgrade to their basic plan and that offers unlimited data for only $6.67 – still one of the cheapest in the VPN market.
We use their Pro plan and will continue to do so, simply because we like the unlimited usage with 2 simultaneous connections – Tim and I usually travel together, so often use VyprVPN on both of our Surfaces at the same time.
As if all this were not enough, I should also add that Vypr offers free storage with their plans. The free plan includes 5 GB of cloud storage.
Want more? Well…
“Golden Frog [these guys own Vypr] and Personal have partnered up! Current Golden Frog customers can sign up to receive a free license to Personal’s Personal Cloud & Data Vault.”
So, you get a free subscription from Personal to originate and protect your most important information, see Golden Frog’s Privacy Marketplace for details.
If you have multiple devices, as many of us do, you should know that you can run VyprVPN on Macs, PCs, phones, Android devices, and even routers and there is a VPN for business option available too.
They also provide excellent technical support – we’ve used them several times. And, in case you are wondering, we installed VyprVPN after we upgraded to Windows 10 and it worked flawlessly.
