This page explains why our site is free and how we generate revenue to cover our expenses.

You are our first priority. Every Time.

Proficient Blogging is a free online resource that produces unbiased, comprehensive content related to antivirus software, VPNs, and digital security & privacy. We cover product reviews, comparisons, as well as “how-to” guides that aim to solve real-world problems of our audience.

We strive to remain independent and are committed to publishing informative, accurate content driven by strict editorial standards. Our team looks at every angle and spends a lot of time and effort into creating in-depth, high-quality product reviews and comparisons, so you can select the right products for your digital safety without wasting your time.

However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy or applicability of any information in regards to your individual circumstances, so please consult with experienced professionals regarding your specific issues and questions.

We do all we can to ensure our content is accurate and up-to-date. All the information provided on is without a warranty. Opinions expressed here are the authors’ own.

Affiliate Partnerships

ProficientBlogging is an independent, advertising-supported. Advertising helps support our website and helps support our mission to provide content free of cost to our readers.

We want to be completely transparent about our advertising relationships because we believe it’s your right to know who we are affiliated with, so you can keep that in mind while reading our content.

We receive compensation from two main sources:

First, we sometimes include affiliate links in our content to our partner websites. Whenever you purchase a product or service using these links, we received a small compensation in return, at absolutely no extra cost to you. This is called a referral fee.

This compensation may affect the order in which products appear on our site, but we only recommend products that are truly the best and companies cannot pay to get their products or services featured on our site. While we review a variety of products and services in every niche, our site does not provide a complete listing of all the available products out there. So we highly suggest you also do your own research before purchasing a product or service.

Second, we also provide paid placements to advertisers to promote their products or services. We receive compensation from advertisers for using our ad space. Most internet websites, including authority sites, use this method to generate revenue.

In an effort of full transparency, here is a list of companies we are affiliate with:

  • McAfee
  • Bitdefender
  • Avast
  • ESET
  • Webroot
  • F-Secure
  • Norton
  • Malwarebytes
  • NordVPN
  • ExpressVPN
  • IPVanish
  • Grammarly

Note: We regularly update this list, it may not include all our partners.

Editorial Promise

Promotional Content

Sometimes, companies approach us to publish promotional content about a specific product or service our site. We only publish content that we genuinely believe our users will find relevant and helpful. This type of content is clearly marked as “sponsored content.”
