Shieldmyip.com like many other website, needs to cover its operating costs and make a profit. We do this mainly from affiliate marketing and links throughout our site. However, we only cover products and services that we truly believe are worth supporting and will be of benefit to our readers. We never ever place affiliate ads/links within our content purely for capitalistic ends. We hope you enjoy our content and get some useful insights from it. Affiliate marketing helps us stay in business and serve you.
