This week’s best VPN deals: NordVPN, Windscribe, Buffered VPN

Losing or accidentally deleting a file can be a headache at home and especially at work. Luckily though, there are a number of great file recovery tools that can help get your documents back.

However, what can you do if an attacker gains access to your system and steals your important files or even locks you out of them? By using a VPN to connect to the internet, you can improve your security online and make sure others on the same network as you are unable to access your files (important ones or otherwise).

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.

These are some of the best deals we found for preventing others from accessing your precious data.
