HumbleBundle Cybersecurity Bundle
« on: June 20, 2018, 09:10:38 am »
Humblebundle has a temporary deal going on with some nice software and services, most notable, IMHO, a year of Private Internet Access for $15 USD and SpiderOak encrypted cloud storage for a year with 1 TB of backup! If you just want to try out PIA for a month, you can do so for $1 USD. There is also other security-related mostly Windows software included for $1, $5 or $15 USD, though some of it is for Mac and Android:

HumbleBundle Cybersecurity






Update: Forgot to mention that this is a time-limited offer. So there's about 2 days and 17 hours left as I make this note.

Thanks for the heads up, about those deals, Jason.  Some very good deals, there.

The PIA deal is only for new customers, however.

Good point. I forgot to mention that. Of course, if your present subscription was near running out, you could just use a new email address I'd imagine and they wouldn't be the wiser.

I purchased the bundle today but I already have PIA. I was mostly just interested in SpiderOak backup which will save me $10 over the year over using Google Drive. Might get it for the wife, too, since she also has Google Drive though she seems less interested in doing backups since she quit doing her 3D design work.


Where was I? Oh yeah, so I have a free Private Internet Access VPN  key that gives you a nice VPN to protect your privacy for a year on five devices and works on all major operating systems for computers and phones. No charge and it's a $40 USD value. Who would like to try out PIA with no risk?

Me, but maybe I should just purchase the Humble Bundle and get Spider Oak with it. Does Spider Oak work with Linux, Android, Mac OS and iOS. I would use it to store my sensitive stuff.

it's yours if Mike gets his own bundle.

And for Mike, regarding OS support for SpiderOak One Backup, it's available for Mac, Windows and Linux - no iOS or Android support, unfortunately.

Forgot to mention this, like all Humble Bundles, is a time-limited offer. So there's about 2 days and 17 hours left as I make this note to get it.

Not sure if Mike is able to check the net where he is, but if you are, Mike, did you pick it up before you left?
