Daily Deal: proXPN VPN

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

We all know how important it is to keep our information and privacy as secure as we can when we're online these days. A subscription to proXPN VPN can help you do that for 89% off of their premium lifetime subscription. You'll gain access to their global server network and can choose between PPTP and OpenVPN encryption options. It works with Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS and Android and allows you to connect up to four devices. ProXPN's privacy policy promises no logging and the lifetime subscription to the service includes all updates.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Recently had bad exerience w/ ProXPN

    Received a new credit card w/ embedded chip and new expiration date. Tried to update my credit card information using a previous link and couldn't do it so wrote customer service. I was told it was impossible to do that and must cancel my account then resign up with the new credit card info. I also noted to them that billions of US credit cards would be reissued in the near future with new expiration dates because of the requirement for chipped cards and if they continued with this policy they would be losing customers to other VPNs. Other sites make it trivial to update credit card info. Why not ProXPN?

      Re: Recently had bad exerience w/ ProXPN

      This kind of stuff is very disconcerting, it really shows a lack of technical ability and a willingness to cobble things together.

      These reasons by themselves tell me to stay very far away from this service.

        If they're too stupid to handle something as basic as a credit card update, then they're clearly much too stupid to be trusted as a VPN provider. This offer should be cancelled by TechDirt in order to prevent any readers from being taken in by these incompetent morons.

    7 Warning signs: I call "SHENANIGANS!"

    This particular 89% off proXPN 'lifetime' offer is bombarding the Internet at the moment by way of a multitude of different websites. Perform a search for something to the effect of "proXPN VPN: Premium Lifetime Subscription For 89% Off" and see what I mean. That's warning sign #1.

    Warning sign #2 is the use of the word 'lifetime'. I NEVER trust that word when it comes to paying for something, not matter what the deal. I've never seen the word 'lifetime' live up to that promise. Not ever.

    Warning sign #3 is the fact that NOWHERE on the proXPN website is there any ability to actually buy a 'lifetime' subscription for ANYTHING, including their premium service. Huh?!

    Warning sign #4 is the fact that I've TWICE written proXPN directly for verification of this offer, providing them with its details. They have NEVER replied to me.

    Warning sign #5 is a comment posted at 9To5Toys.com, one of the many sites listing this offer. The comment from a fellow named Eric Cook who reports: "It's say lifetime, but they also says "You're now subscribed to 2 Years of proXPN Premium", which one is it? or am I expected to live for only 2 years?"

    Warning sign #6 is another comment at 9To5Toys.com from a fellow named Ryan Nguyen who reports: "Ok I just bought and I thought it was proXPN but when you buy it, it is actually TigerVPN by proXPN, not sure what that means but hopefully that helps clear things up."

    Warning sign #7 is the fact that TigerVPN is located in Slovakia. Plus their website pushes Canvas tracking images into visitor's web browsers, not a good sign of integrity from a VPN service!

    7 warning signs is my limit. I call "SHENANIGANS!"
