PureVPN Lifetime Subscription for ~AUD $107 (US $81) with 10% off Sign-up & First Purchase @ MakeUseOf

22

For those who are not very familiar, PureVPN is one the fastest and biggest VPN providers. You can google for the reviews.

The deal is through makeuseof.com and the sale price is ~AUD 119 (US$89) for lifetime subscription. If you sign up their website before purchase, you'll also get 10% off for the first purchase. Well, it requires the first purchase amount >= US$30, which of course you'll meet if buying this VPN subscription.

I also have a referral link if you are interested. If you went to the website via that link and made a purchase at the end, both you and me get $10 credit.

For those who are interested in cheaper options, VPN Unlimited also offers lifetime subscription for ~AU$52 (US$39 5 devices) or ~AU$60 (US$45 10 devices), which is pretty good deal. My referral link also takes you to this deal directly.

        those domain names suggest ranking is always prone to misinfo. I don't trust topvpns etc.

          Yes the VPN reviews are mostly just farcial referral/money making/shilling spam.

          I'd also be careful about shelling out good money on any lifetime deals. There's a few around the $us40, which if they don't fold inside 2yrs, then are value for money. But they also tend to be slow (e.g. VPN unlimited). They're handy as a backup.

          The problem with the VPN industry it's all about trust, as you're routing your interest traffic through them. They could be easily logging you (don't blindly trust these "No Logs" claims), they could be selling your info onto 3rd parties (such as surfing habbits, etc). If they or their down stream provider are hacked, it's easy to redirect & serve you up ads/malware/etc).

          As for the claims of one the fastest, they all seem to claim this. part of the problem is where the servers are located. If they're OS, then they're going to be slow as your traffic goes to say US first then to it's destination. You really need to test. The best way to either ask for a 1 week trial a/c, or get them to agree to a 7 day no querstions refund and try them out.

    also, as one of above url shows it's been US$69 for lifetime.
    but when it sells itself short, it's always a bad sign. too good to be true.

    For value I believe Nord VPN at the moment is alright.

    for the record, i've been using PureVPN for over a year and never had any problems. Speeds are fine, WAS getting IP leaks but they fixed it. The only issue I had was when I enabled the killswitch on the service, it added a firewall rule which disabled my NIC and took me AGES to figure out what was wrong with it. They did fix it in the end and it's been fine since then

    I only really use my VPN for downloading and the occasional streaming (ie; during March Madness) and it's been fine

    This is a general VPN question but I'm with vividwireless and they limit torrent speeds, if I get a VPN will they not be able to throttle the speed anymore?

    •  

      vividwireless limit all P2P (peer to peer) connections which is more than just torrenting.
      And as long as your traffic goes via the VPN vividwireless shouldn't be able to tell what traffic it is and thus shouldn't limit it.
