The internet has come a long way. For example, you can play online games with massive, thriving communities. Meanwhile, your browsing habits probably produce targeted ads on your sidebar and email.

Luckily, you can take the best and get rid of the worst. Unlock online gaming and lock down your browsing with this bundle, which pairs 12 months of PlayStation Plus Essential with a lifetime subscription to VPN Unlimited, all for only $69.99 (regularly $259).

Game online and browse in peace

If you game online, this probably isn’t the first you’ve heard of PlayStation Plus. However, the changes Sony recently made to its service might be news to you. Just a few months ago, Sony expanded the options players have for online gaming.

PlayStation Plus Essential

The PS Plus Essential subscription is basically the same as the original model, but it comes with some new additions that gamers will likely enjoy.

As with past subscriptions, PS Plus Essential lets you access the online component for compatible games. You can fight your friends, befriend strangers and send positive and encouraging (or negative and nasty) messages through chat features — all the standard stuff.

PS Plus Essential also expands your game library with new titles every month. And it gives you discounts on games, DLC, preorders and exclusive cosmetics like character and weapon skins.

One of the big changes, however, is the addition of two new PS5-only features. If you’re one of the people lucky enough to own a PS5, then you can get free access to 20 beloved PS4 titles for free. These include Days Gone, Detroit: Become Human and Uncharted 4. And if you’re stuck on a PS5 game, you may be able to access the all-new Game Help option which gives you spoiler-free guidance.

VPN Unlimited

When you need to wind down from gaming, VPN Unlimited will come in handy if you want to conceal your browsing from everyone, including your ISP. This service lets you access servers for streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and HBO Now, and torrent from P2P servers (and use a kill switch if it goes wrong).

Plus, your data is locked behind AES 256-bit encryption, making it next to impossible for hackers to peek at your browsing habits.
