NordVPN has just launched its holiday deal, and it's a pretty good one. Right now you're going to be able to get three months free, when you sign up for the three year plan. Which is rated at $3.49 per month (but you pay it all up-front, for a total of $125.64).
That's a pretty good deal actually, and it's the lowest price we've seen for NordVPN.
NordVPN typically costs as much as $11.99 per month, if you are paying month to month. Or $6.99 per month for a year plan and $4.99 per month for a two-year plan. So getting it for just $3.49 per month is definitely a great deal.
So why exactly do you need a VPN? Well, most people want one to keep their browsing habits a secret. Most people don't want ISPs tracking what they are browsing. As that data is usually used to target ads to you, which lets face it, companies already do a pretty freaky good job at that. With a VPN, it will encrypt your traffic and keep your browsing habits a secret, which is pretty nice. But there are a few other reasons to use a VPN.
Some websites are different depending on the country you are in. Netflix is a prime example of that. The library for Netflix in the US is much different than it is in Canada or even the UK. With a VPN, you can connect to a server in another country and access their library of Netflix.
But the biggest reason to get a VPN is if you do a lot of traveling. As this is going to allow you to get around the local censorship laws (particularly needed in Russia, Turkey and China). Allowing you to connect back to the US servers while you are in those countries, is definitely useful and much needed.
