The first step into increasing your anonymity on the internet is understanding why you need a VPN. By using a VPN, you can encrypt all of your internet traffic completely. No one can see what you’re doing, and your IP address is masked. So you’re in the right place!
The second step, is purchasing your VPN anonymously. Two popular ways to do this are with gift cards of Bitcoin. While this might sound difficult to purchase a VPN with something other than your debit card or a paypal account–it’s actually incredibly easy and surprisingly useful, to purchase a VPN with Bitcoin or gift cards.
How to purchase a VPN with Bitcoin
Bitcoin is just one of many cryptocurrencies. A cryptocurrency is an anonymous form of digital currency that is maintained by a wide network of users. In order to use Bitcoin, you must use a website like CoinBase.com to purchase Bitcoin with real currency like USD or Euros.
To do this, simply connect your bank account or credit card to Coinbase or Circle and purchase some Bitcoin. Bitcoin is different than other currencies however. Bitcoin works in terms of small “bits” that make up an entire Bitcoin. Right now, a Bitcoin is worth around $400-500 USD. You won’t need that much to purchase bits, since Coinbase automatically converts your currency to bits for you.
Once you got some bits, you can easily navigate to our payment tab to select Bitcoin checkout. Once here, you can copy the Bitcoin address provided into Coinbase to send off a payment, or use the Coinbase mobile app to scan the QR code.
It’s a fast process, and you should be done with checkout and downloading our VPN app in no time!
How to purchase a VPN with gift cards
Gift cards are a great way to pay for VPN anonymously since it’s hard to track their origins. You can purchase gift cards with cash, or use gift cards purchased from others.
It doesn’t matter if you got that gift card for Christmas you’ll never use, because you can use them to purchase a GhostVPN subscription! Each gift card you own can be digitally exchanged for real currency.
Simply navigate to our checkout, and enter your gift card information to start the transaction.
