BNB is Binance exchange’s crypto coin. As at the time of writing, BNB is trading at $18.72 on CoinMarketCap. The firm also revealed that all plans bought with BNB would have a flat 10% discount.
PureVPN is a virtual private network (VPN) service provider. According to PureVPN’s website, the firm offers the fastest VPN services in the world at the best prices.
Its users get to enjoy benefits such as,
- On the spot access to online content. This ranges from movies, TV shows, to sporting events.
- Security and anonymity. The firm provides anonymous VPN IP addresses, military-grade encryption, and a global network on VPN servers to ensure the highest standards of privacy.
- Fast speeds. Pure VPN acknowledges that slow internet speeds kill the fun in everything done online. Therefore, the firm has set up high-speed VPN servers that ensure your online experience is seamless.
Other Payment Methods
PureVPN supports up to 50 payment options to offer its clients a wide range of choices when buying VPN plans.
In 2013, PureVPN announced through a blog post that it had added Bitcoin as the first crypto payment option on its platform. This movement sought to increase anonymity by allowing users to buy VPN plans without giving personal details such as names.
PureVPN also allows its customers to use traditional means to buy its services. These include PayPal, Visa, Moneybooker, American Express, Mastercard, WebMoney, Cherry Credits, Mercado Pago, Raekc, MyCard, Indomog, Pagseguro, Fanapay, Qiwi, Interac, Przelewy, Dotpay, iDeal, Alipay, Giropay, E-Prepag, SanalPara, ToditoCash, Ukash, Phone Payment, GudangVoucher, MOLPoints, Ecopayz, Necard, Neosurf, GSCash, Ticket Surf, All o Pass, SMS Coin, MikroOdeme, DaoPay, and Mobile Payment.
This feature allows users to select which data they want to send through their internet service provider (ISP) and which data to send through VPN. This helps reduce jams when browsing. However, data that passes through your ISP does not have military-grade security.
Internet Kill Switch
The internet kill switch (IKS) lets you control your privacy, security, and anonymity even when your VPN connection is not functioning.
Five Simultaneous Connections
One PureVPN account allows you to connect up to five gadgets at the same time. This feature does not have a bandwidth limit or server switching limitations for all connected devices.
PureVPN has more than 2,000 servers that are placed tactically across the world to help users move past any limitations.
Using PureVPN on your devices establishes a secure connection when you connect to public Wi-Fi networks. This feature prevents data theft.
PureVPN is located in Hong Kong and members of 5 and 14 eyes do not need the firm to keep any user data.
