Give the gift of privacy: Avast SecureLine VPN

Juraj Chrappa, 22 December 2017

We’ve added more countries and more servers, just in time for the holidays.

At a time when almost every holiday present is an IoT device—connected gadgets that can put your privacy and safety at risk—why not think one better, and gift your loved ones with online privacy instead? VPNs (virtual private networks) are secure lines to the internet. They protect users by masking their real IP address and encrypting their data.

With increasingly smart advertising methods that target individual users, the current sophistication of cybercrime, and our recent loss of net neutrality, privacy is becoming less a right and more a luxury. VPNs provide that luxury. They allow you to do everything online you’ve always done, only now in a safe tunnel of privacy. Instead of driving around the cyber highways with the top down and everyone seeing both your identity and your actions, VPNs are your rental car with tinted windows. Nobody knows who you are or where you came from.
