So…how many streaming services are you paying for right now? Are you still receiving cable too? How about your broadband expenses? And any apps or security services that you’re paying for each month?

Tech can nickel and dime you to death. Sure, all of these services are only $4.99 a month here or just $7.95 a month there, but before you know it, you’re spending a lot each month on these little subscriptions that you don’t even always remember you have. 

And then — there’s virtual private network (VPN) billing. For those who’d like to eliminate those pesky VPN charges while still retaining the online protection that a VPN offers, the Winston Privacy Filter is a hardware solution that just might free you from a VPN subscription once and for all.

In fact, you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised to learn that Winston is actually even more than a VPN. The Winston device is positioned between your home modem and router, constantly patrolling every interaction that happens over the digital connection between your home network and the world wide web.

With a VPN, you access the VPN service provider’s network to take advantage of their shielded and protected web connections. But Winston covers you right from the source, essentially encrypting all of your web traffic to make users virtually invisible to cybercriminals, government snoops, or anyone trying to track or steal sensitive personal information.

And by routing your web traffic through a zero-logging, proprietarily distributed Privacy Mesh network, Winston doesn’t just protect the connection between your phone or your laptop and the web. Winston protects everything, assuring even your smart-enabled devices like smart TVs, smart thermostats, smart refrigerators, and more can never be exploited.

Plus, Winston is a methodical watchdog, shutting down ads, disabling trackers and cookies, and stopping all necessary data transfers that not only put your information at risk, but all work to slow down the operation of your devices as well as your home WiFi. It even safeguards users from sophisticated browser fingerprinting techniques that can track you online, even if you’re surfing in incognito mode. 

Meanwhile, Winston also protects against DNS rebinding attacks, popups, and monitors all of your online traffic to help ensure you’ve got the fastest possible connection speed.

And unlike VPN providers with their monthly subscription fees, the Winston Privacy Filter is yours for one single-purchase price. On sale for $179, you can save an additional 20 percent on the price of the Winston when you use Mother’s Day coupon code WELOVEMOM at checkout, lowering the price to just $143.20.
