VPN software is pretty much mandatory these days. If you connect to any network that you can't 100 per cent trust, then you need to have VPN access - plain and simple. PureVPN is a Hong Kong-based provider with over 750 servers around the world that supports a wide range of different VPN protocols. And we've got two great deals for PureVPN that are exclusive to Lifehacker readers.
Here are the two deals, available for a limited time:
- Get 82% off PureVPN on a three year plan: That's a total of $92.24 (or about $2.56/month) instead of the full cost of almost $520. That's a saving of about $420.
- Get 62% off PureVPN on a one year deal: That's just $65.67 (or about $5.48/month) instead of the full cost of almost of $173.28. That's a saving of about $107.

PureVPN support macOS, Windows, iOS and Android. And there are also browser extensions and a VPN module that can be installed on many popular routers. PureVPN says they don't log user activity and they also claim to allow access to overseas streaming video services.
If you're looking for a trustworthy VPN that won't break the bank, you'll be hard pressed to find a better offering than the above. Crucially, it has a Chrome extension that will let you watch US Netflix in Australia. Hurrah!
I imagine that upon first accessing the US Netflix library, most Australians begin to belt out the classic Aladdin jam “A Whole New World” - it truly is like stepping into an alternate, content-filled universe of TV and movies. Unfortunately, since Netflix cracked down on VPNs at the beginning of 2016, its been much harder to access the US library, but fret not! Here’s some reliable VPNs that will grant you a golden ticket to Netflix-and-chill-ville.
