As an artist or designer, nothing is more precious to you than your online portfolio. All of your original designs and pieces took countless hours to create, so why not put yourself at ease by ensuring they are safe online? A VPN can protect you and your creations as well as keep your browsing data safe from prying eyes.
Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in USD 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 GBP, or whatever your native currency may be.
Here are a few of the best VPNs we found for protecting our portfolios.
01. Hotspot Shield – only $140 for a lifetime
For those considering using a VPN, this service provides great download speeds at a very low price. Hotspot Shield supports private browsing, virtual locations and up to five devices. A lifetime license is also available for users who are pleased with the service and want to keep using it forever.
02. ExpressVPN – from $99.95 for 15 months
If you use multiple devices across a variety of platforms, then this VPN could be the perfect fit for you as it comes with native clients for Mac, Windows, Linux and mobile apps for iOS, Android and Blackberry. ExpressVPN has over 1000 servers in 136 locations to ensure you will be able to connect to its service.
03. VyprVPN – just $60 per year
This feature-packed VPN offers very fast performance while protecting your privacy.
