Btw, the premium is for 12.99 and it can be configured on 5 pc at the same time. if you're willing to go for it then buy that. It is the most economical one. Reason being, I don't have 5 pcs :lol:

not exactly. but in the past years, i've been seeing antivirus giants acquiring vpn services (think hma and avast and norton) while others are trying to incorporate vpn as a part of their security suite package or something. norton is one name that comes to mind. so maybe in a couple of years, it will be a norm.

I have read more articles and reviews related to "Does VPN offer virus protection or not or other malware," but seniors response about it “No“ due to I must say VPN does not do it.

VPN can provide you with an encrypted tunnel to route your internet traffic via it which makes you anonymous while browsing but it never provides antivirus. You have to install a premium antivirus software for virus and malware protection. However, a secure VPN can keep you safe from hackers, spammers and other cyber attackers by hiding your real IP and other login details.

So it's not safe to login to a website while using a vpn?
Here's why I use the bathmate instead.

I suppose you could say it's "slightly" safer, it is as KettyMitchels wrote earlier:

No friend VPN didn't offer for virus protection. If you want Virus protection than you need to use Antivirus software. :)
