Internet security should be on everyone’s minds these days. Identity theft is running rampant, and accounts are being compromised at an alarming rate. The scariest part is that none of it is your fault! All it takes is one company that you have an account with to suffer a data leak, and suddenly, your private information is available for the world to see.
That doesn’t mean you should cut yourself off from the internet completely. All you need are a VPN and a password manager to keep your accounts and identity private. As luck would have it, NordSec offers both a VPN and password manager, and new Popular Science readers can get a two-year subscription for $99.99, or 71 percent off.
The Essential Nord 2-Year Subscription Bundle comes with NordVPN, which double-encrypts and sends your traffic to its private servers to keep you anonymous and hide your information. Your traffic is routed to one of over 5,500 worldwide servers in 59 different countries, providing you a new IP address and allowing you to access services like Netflix or Hulu anywhere in the world, even in countries where they’re banned. NordVPN touts a no-log policy, so your data can never be leaked, even if one of its servers is compromised.
Additionally, this bundle comes with two years of NordPass Premium, an app that protects and manages your passwords in a secure digital vault. You can use NordPass to generate strong, unique passwords whenever you create an account with a new app or service. We also recommend scouring your existing accounts and updating them with new passwords from NordPass.
NordPass auto-fills password forms and can sync across all of your devices. This means that you don’t have to worry about remembering passwords, let alone using the same password for each of your accounts, which is extremely dangerous. In the event that one of the companies you have an account for experiences a data leak, you don’t have to worry about your other accounts being compromised because all of your passwords are unique.
Using the internet without a VPN and password manager is like keeping your front door open with only one key to secure it. The Essential Nord 2-Year Subscription Bundle will help you maintain your privacy in the event of a data leak, and you can subscribe today for $99.99.
