Hello @lynngaulin and welcome to the community! 

We do not offer a VPN service as of this moment.

As you know, VPN is a service that is offered in order to keep your activities on the internet anonymous. While we do not offer a VPN service, what I can give you are tips on how to better protect yourself when surfing online. Try following the tips that I got from different sources to help you protect your online identity.

1. Exclude important personal information from your social media profiles
2. Check your social media privacy settings
3. Strengthen your online passwords
4. Use multiple passwords for different accounts
5. Check your phone's privacy settings
6. Watch out for 'phishing' emails
7. Keep your Wifi or local network secure and password protected too
8. Check for the https:// websites as those are more secure than http:// 
9. Monitor everything you get through your online banking accounts
10. Keep a close eye on your bank statements
11. Don’t sync your Google Chrome if ever you use it
12. Turn off Instant Search
13. Configure your browser security/privacy settings

I have also checked your records and it appears that you purchased from Bestbuy. For further issues, you may contact Geeksquad, our team that supports Bestbuy related concerns through the contact hotline below.

Thank you and have a good day!

An excellent question from lynngaulin. In fact, I was going to put a question here of the  same nature. I do wish Trend Micro would come up with a solution to protect the browsing habits of its customers in the U.S.. It just feels like a personal violation.
