This week’s best VPN deals: Hotspot Shield, IPVanish, ExpressVPN

Mozilla, the company behind popular web browser Firefox, has just launched a new private file-sharing tool called Firefox Send that allows users to upload and share even large files securely. While this tool might be a good option for some users, a VPN is a much better option when it comes to bolstered security. By using a VPN to connect to the internet, all of your devices and files will benefit from an added layer of security and protection on any network they’re connected to. 

Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in Dollars for the sake of simplicity. Bear in mind that when you click through to the actual deals, you may find the prices automatically displayed in pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.

Here are the best deals we found for taking our online security to the next level.
