Keep your computer safe when using new tools with a VPN

As designers and artists, we routinely try out new tools online in search of things that will improve our workflow. But what happens when you download a new program that appears to be illegitimate or even malicious? By using one of the best VPNs (virtual private network) when trying out new tools and programs, you can help protect your computer so that it’s ready to work when you are.

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 pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.
