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

Secure your smart home with a VPN

General Electric’s new smart lamp called The Sol has Amazon’s Alexa embedded inside so that you can control the lighting of a room with your voice. IoT-enabled devices have quickly found a place inside our homes despite the fact that they are often designed with minimal security features.

By using a VPN to connect to the internet, you can make sure that your smart home is protected online and that your user data remains anonymous.

Most VPN 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.

So, without further ado, here are some great deals on VPNs to help protect your connected devices:
