And whether you need a VPN for unblocking sites like Hulu and Netflix, or you want a more secure connection for online banking or work-related privacy, it’s vital that you take it out for a test-drive first.

Thankfully, PureVPN offers a 31-Day Money Back Guarantee. You can cancel if you don’t use it regularly enough, if you found their speeds lag, if you want a better value; they’ll let you cancel for any reason and fully refund your subscription within 31 days.

If you select the monthly option, it will warn you that you won’t get 74 percent savings like you would with a two-year plan. All three offer a free trial, but for significant savings you’ll want to use a more extended commitment plan of one or two years.

Be sure to turn off recurring payments to avoid getting hit with a bill later on.

Step 3: Choose your payment method.
