Going online amounts to inviting snoops, data thieves and other headaches, whether on mobile devices or your computer. Not so with a virtual private network, or VPN, which keeps your identity and activity anonymous while opening up new possibilities.
Being online means being constantly tracked, and exposed to data theft. So whether you’re done with being targeted for ads, or want to avoid having your identity stolen, this single tool will do double duty to protect you.
You don’t need us to tell you that the internet is a dangerous place. Surely you need no reminders of the malware, data thieves, and snoops that swim the interwebs. And if you’re aware of all those threats, you’re probably aware that a VPN is one of the easiest security measures you can take to protect yourself.

Here at Cult of Mac, we’re big fans of virtual private networks (VPNs). They offer an encrypted, anonymous channel into the internet, and are an essential way to stay secure online. VPNs come in all shapes and sizes, but not all of them can also increase your connection speeds and extend your battery life. That’s just what Disconnect does, on top of being a great tracker blocker that guards against malware, ads, and data snoops on all your mobile browsers. And right now, you can get a lifetime premium subscription to Disconnect for just $49 at Cult of Mac Deals.
I have to admit, I’m less than wary of all the tracking that goes on with the iOS devices my kids have access to. Now that they both have at least an iPod touch and access to my iPads, I’m feeling a bit on the worried side about them sharing any of their web or app activity.
Luckily, there’s an app called Disconnect Kids that installs on any iOS device and then helps kids (and their parents) understand what this tracking stuff is, and how to block it. It then helps those very same kids and parents do just that.
