Restore the Fourth: Secure Your Privacy with 4GBs Free(dom)

by with 3 comments

This week we are supporting Restore the Fourth‘s online efforts to drive awareness and action against unconstitutional digital surveillance. Be sure to join the conversation on Reddit and Twitter via #restorethe4th.

In solidarity, we are offering 4GBs free to new users and 25% off annual plans for existing users. Embrace our zero-knowledge privacy this week as you safely, privately and securely back up the data that is most important to you. See below for more information on how to take advantage of this limited-time deal.


The Fourth Amendment was carefully written for the express purpose of limiting the government’s ability to violate the deserved privacy of its law-abiding constituents. We celebrate our freedom this week by asking the government to acknowledge privacy with respect to digital communications data.

Another way you can take action is by visiting stopwatching.us and sign a letter that demands the U.S. Congress reveal the full extent of the NSA’s spying programs.


If you are a new user, sign up for 4GBs free for life when you sign up HERE.

If you already use and love SpiderOak, use the code restorethe4th when you upgrade your yearly plan to receive 25% off – that means only $75 per year, or $6.25 a month, for 100Gbs. Here’s how:

  • Open your ‘account’ through the accounts tab in the SpiderOak client or click the ‘Buy more space’ button.
  • On the Account Details page, select “Upgrade My Plan” to the right.
  • On this page, you will see a “Promotional Code” box.
  • Type “restorethe4th” in this box and select “Update”
  • You will see the discount 4GB free option as well as the 25% discount to yearly plans.
  • Choose your promotion and continue the ‘checkout’ process.

Note: The ’4 GB FREE’ offer is intended for new users. Selecting this promotion as a current user will replace your existing storage with 4 GBs.

Offer ends July 4th at 11:59 PM CDT.

Enjoy, and thank you again for your continued patronage and support.

  1. If I upgrade my current plan with this code, will I be charged only when the previous subscription period runs out? I tried doing this and it give me some “Total Due Immediately” (albeit only $6)

    • Hmm – I put in a question to support and we will be in touch. Sorry about the hassle! Thanks for participating!

    • @himselfv – If you email support@spideroak.com with your username they will look up your specific case and take care of you. Otherwise, our billing is pro-rated, so there are a number of reasons why you might still owe us $6. If you’re being charged for the change in plan, we guess it is because you are changing from a smaller plan (and the difference between what was owed previously and the cost of the new plan is $6). We also prorate in cases where the user still has months left on their current plan, but this prorating usually means the user pays less than the cost of the new plan. Hope this helps! Thanks so much!
