What are the most dangerous digital threats that lie ahead in 2018?

Most of us look to the future with optimism. Or better said, we hope for the best. That includes cyber security threats, which means we hope these will be fewer and less vulnerable. Unfortunately, though, odds are that the situation will be quite the opposite.

Dreaming of a private Xmas? Make it happen with our 83% discount

The holiday season wouldn’t really be the same without all those presents left by “Santa” underneath the Christmas tree.

But most of the times, our busy lives don’t allow us to shop for all those goodies in person and ordering gifts online seems like the most time-efficient solution.

Yet that comes at a cost too. When we shop online, we leave our personal data and bank accounts exposed to hackers, who really don’t believe in such obsolete concepts as “Christmas kindness”.

However, there is a solution and a way to keep online snoopers at bay. A CyberGhost VPN subscription enables you to stay safe from online scams. Of course, we won’t magically refill your bank account, but we will keep it protected from digital thieves.

If this is a decision you’ve been postponing lately, now it’s the time to finally invest in a truly efficient and simple online privacy solution. Since we are having our Christmas sales, you can purchase a 7-year plan for a staggering 83% discount.
