The internet is still like the wild west, with the online equivalent of the railroad companies looking to carve it up. It’s going to take people power to keep the internet open, like today’s Operation: One More Vote. But there are personal steps we can each take to maintain our privacy and freedom of movement online.

The first step is connecting with a VPN. This deal offers a year with Private Internet Access, one of the leading VPN providers. All traffic passes through high level encryption, so can avoid targeted advertising. Additionally, IP cloaking means you can bypass location restrictions on content, from anywhere. It connects with a single click, preventing data mining, trackers and malware, and more. Plus, you can use this VPN on as many as 5 devices at once. And if the VPN connection is cut for some reason, there’s an automatic kill switch that will prevent unprotected data going one way or the other.

Buy now: Get a year of Private Internet Access VPN for $34.95. That’s a full 58 percent off the usual price.
