yes you are right broIn an ever evolving world, a "lifetime" subscription to anything is a pretty bad idea.
On the VPN front, a longer subscription will cost more, and who knows if they'll still be around in 5+ years. Even if it was 'only' say 10x the annual cost, and you paid it upfront ($100/lifetime vs $10/year), you've 'pre-paid' and may not get the service*.
NordVPN (and others, I'm sure) offer a ~3 year plan.... A lot of YT'ers have codes for 60%(?) off of said plans too. That's probably the longest I'd commit to something like a VPN.
*Could you imagine still being bound (or already paid for) lifetime subscriptions to AOL? Napster? MegaUpload? Not quite the same situation, but you get the idea.
Yes, they need money to maintain their hardware and lifetime subscription will be grave for them.I doubt that there is, software companies in general need the constant revenue stream to maintain the hardware and software to run the service. One time payments are a thing of the past unfortunately - things need to stay up to date to stay compatible and that costs money.
In general I would also recommend getting something like NordVPN for a couple of years and if it still seems alright after that just stick to it or get a different provider.
And, for full transparency, a recently disclosed breach:I have been using NordVPN for a while now and enjoy their service. They do not have a lifetime deal, but they have some long tenure plans such as for 3 years
I also prefer NORD VPN and windscribe. But they are costly. So do you know about windscribe. and ? I have search fastestvpn deal on https://dealmirror.com/ at $12 but their official website https://fastestvpn.com/ said $72. So I am confusing which is best for me.There are a couple of lifetime deals available at XDA - https://depot.xda-developers.com/best-sellers You may want to have a look at those. There are some deals available from KeepSolid, FastestVPN, VPNSecure, etc. I haven't tried any of those but am thinking to give one of those a try. I have been using NordVPN for a while now and enjoy their service. They do not have a lifetime deal, but they have some long tenure plans such as for 3 years that you can use to save a considerable amount of money. You can also use some coupons available online - https://nordvpn.com/coupon/ or https://thevpnco.com/nordvpn-coupon-codes/
