What is PureVPN?

PureVPN is a virtual private network (VPN) that is operating in the industry since 2007. It is based in Hong Kong and ever since its inception, PureVPN has matured into a feature-rich VPN service. Subscribers can select almost any location on earth through PureVPN’s server availability and optimize the service through multiple modes.

True to its word, PureVPN offers loads of features such as Internet kill switch, dedicated IP, split tunneling, and a port forwarding option to cater user’s needs. Therefore, if are someone looking for such options in a VPN, then PureVPN is an excellent choice.

After our testing, we were impressed with its device compatibility and improved the user interface of its apps. However, different models have variable performance as a streaming option offers far better speeds compared to Security / Privacy mode. But, you can always configure the server location with protocols and encryption keys to find the right balance.

PureVPN Review on Twitter

Given PureVPN’s global presence, we explored Twitter to find out user’s opinion about the provider. The reviews were a mix bag, but overall positive. Many users found PureVPN easy to use and full of features, while other users found its performance variable. However, there is a lot of chatter about the abundance of servers and affordable prices offered by PureVPN.

  1. Some users asked for a Kill Switch for the Android app, otherwise appreciated the PureVPN Android App for functioning properly.

Is PureVPN Safe?

Many VPN users question: is PureVPN safe? From our PureVPN review, we can safely say that the service is safe to use. We downloaded their apps on different devices, used their services using multiple servers, and conducted thorough tests to find out any flaws or weaknesses. Based on the results from our testing, PureVPN is safe to use and offers great features and unbeatable performance.


How to Secure OpenVPN Vulnerability on DD-WRT

A new vulnerability has come to light with PureVPN on DD-WRT routers. When you set up OpenVPN protocol, the end tunnel remains open. This leaves you exposed to privacy vulnerabilities as anyone looking from outside the WAN can reach your DD-WRT routers GUI using the public IP offered by PureVPN.

The alarming aspect of this vulnerability is that a VPN circumvents the standard protection of WAN firewall and anyone using a simple HTTP can access your router’s GUI. Instead, OpenVPN protocol employs its own firewall rules, which is weak. So how do you overcome this vulnerability?

According to a user on DD-WRT’s official forum, use the following commands to secure your router while using any commercial OpenVPN software.

Under addition config, enter the following command:

dev tun0

Then add the following firewall scripts:

# allow only outbound connections to the VPN (no inbound)

iptables -I INPUT -i tun0 -j ACCEPT

iptables -I INPUT -i tun0 -m state –state NEW -j DROP

iptables -I FORWARD -i tun0 -m state –state NEW -j DROP

iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -o tun0 -j MASQUERADE

What this will do is replace the weak OpenVPN firewall rules with more secure ones. It will prevent anyone from creating inbound links to your network using the public IP offered by PureVPN and accessing your DD-WRT routers GUI.

Unique Selling Proposition That Makes PureVPN a Top Provider

In our PureVPN review, we found that Split-Tunneling tool is clearly a unique selling proposition offered by the provider. It allows PureVPN client to exchange network traffic of selected applications, while all other data traffic flows from outside the perimeter of the VPN tunnel established upon VPN activation.
Users can add the programs of their choice through the Split-Tunneling tab.

The feature is easy to use and can be enabled/disabled as required. It is ideal for individuals looking to take a load off their VPN tunnel and improve VPN performance. Users looking for heavy VPN use (such as users wishing to engage in more than one of streaming, gaming, and torrent downloading at the same time) will appreciate this feature.

Get PureVPN Trial & Achieve One-Click Privacy and Accessibility

No suggestions or claims can offer real-time satisfaction that trial version of VPN can deliver. With VPN trial, users can take a test drive of service without making a full commitment. Since the encryption and tunneling quality provided by most VPN services is impacted by a number of elements, VPN services often offer either unpaid trials or refund guarantees to users. In this PureVPN review, we have found that trial is available through the three-day money back guarantee. Users can try out the full range of PureVPN features, functions and services. This is a much better deal than other free trials since free trials usually come with restrictions and limitations.

In comparison, the PureVPN trial provides users full compatibility to try out the service on desktop, laptops, mobiles, routers and other devices. In addition, PureVPN review showed that trial users can also seek support from the LiveChat system to get their problems, issues, and queries resolved. This provides an excellent chance for users to troubleshoot their problems if they want to stay with the service, or ask for a reimbursement if they want to abandon the subscription.

The PureVPN trial also gives users an excellent chance to try the service on custom operating system or consoles. The additional advantage of tutorials and setup guides provides additional support that is not usually available with other VPN services.

Server Spread and Locations of PureVPN

For our comprehensive PureVPN review, we found that the provider boasts a server-strength of over 790+ servers. These servers are spread out across 141 countries. The largest collection of PureVPN’s servers is located in the United Kingdom, the United States and in Canada. Besides these, PureVPN has at least two servers located in all the other countries.

purevpn servers Location Details

A VPN service provider is nothing without a good server spread and PureVPN seems to know this quite clearly. A good server spread is sensibly distributed to give users maximum online anonymity, accessibility, and security. But the PureVPN review unveiled that it goes a step further and includes a server in those countries as well, where the internet freedom is TRULY considered as a blessing because of strict censorship policies.

That is the reason why PureVPN has three optimal servers in China – because of China blocks and bans the living daylights out of the internet. PureVPN chooses to focus server expansion efforts across the world while the bulk of the server count remains in the US and UK. Recently it has further expanded its server locations in the Asian, European, American and African regions as well, where several servers have been added to its list to facilitate the users.

PureVPN Browser Extension

PureVPN offers browser extensions to users on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Subscribers can download the extension from Chrome extension store or from Firefox add-on store. The installation process is very simple. Just download and install the extension on your respective browsers and use the service for privacy and accessibility.

We tested PureVPN browser extensions on both the browsers. Our first impression was very good as the extension was lightweight and took no time during the installation. Furthermore, we were pleased to see neat user interface and easy-to-navigate options. After you log in using your PureVPN credentials, just select a server and hit ‘Connect’. It’s as simple as that!



In addition to basic VPN features, PureVPN Chrome extension and Firefox add-on offer additional benefits as well. It has a built-in ad blocker that stops intrusive ads from popping up when you browse the internet. Likewise, it offers WebRTC protection to stop IP leakage and Malware protection to safeguard your system.

PureVPN iOS App for Reliable Online Protection & Anonymity

We tested the iOS app for our PureVPN review. Its iOS App offers 2GB of free data with complete online freedom and anonymity for the ultimate experience. The improved user-friendly interface provides handy operation.  Even more, customer satisfaction is at number one priority in PureVPN. Military grade encryption, Blazing fast speed, 100% anonymity, Reliable security and Very-affordable packages are some of the benefits you get by using Pure VPN.

In addition, PureVPN has added an impressive feature that will connect you to VPN when the phone restarts. The app is now also available in Arabic, Turkish, Chinese and Spanish languages. Thus, we suggest iOS users equip themselves with PureVPN iOS app and experience the internet like never before.


Following are some unbeatable features offered by PureVPN:

  • IKEv2 Protocol Protection with up to 256-bit encryption.
  • PPTP and L2TP protocols supported.
  • Unblock almost each and every content.
  • VoIP and Video Call supported.
  • 24/7 live technical support.

The android client comes with 2 GB of free bandwidth and offers in-app support and package update options.

After installing PureVPN android app on your device, you will achieve robust protection against a range of cyber threats. In addition, you will be able to access tons of geo-restricted sites and services on your android devices from anywhere in the world.

In addition to the main features, our PureVPN review showed that the engineers at PureVPN have made sure to make it more user-friendly. With the new Windows Dialer, the users can personalize the VPN client depending upon what purpose they are using it for.

Setup PureVPN for Windows 10 & Get 100% Protected Against Cyber Threats

Microsoft Windows 10 prides itself on being a most adopted platform in the world. Being installed on more than 350 million active devices, Windows 10 is prone to similar security vulnerabilities that previous versions had faced. Various hacking attacks, identity thefts, ransomware and unauthorized state-surveillance have left Windows 10 users with no other option except to use a VPN for reliable protection against modern cyber threats.

PureVPN offers supreme data privacy to Windows 10 users with state-of-the-art security infrastructure and robust tunneling protocols (L2TP/IPSec, SSTP, OpenVPN & IKEv2). With PureVPN installed on Windows 10, a user is 101% protected against each and every odds of the cyber world.

Business Packages by PureVPN

Business Packages of PureVPN

If you are looking for a corporate VPN, you need to go no further. Our PureVPN review showed that the service remains one of the favorite choices for business companies and it provides three different packages to all the business corporations to choose from.

This VPN for business caters to the needs of small businesses and large corporations. The three business VPNs by PureVPN are named as Silver, Gold, and Platinum. The users can opt for Silver Plan by PureVPN for small business that provides 5 VPN accounts, seven different protocols for security and 5 dedicated IPs.

PureVPN for Torrenting

Torrenting and P2P downloads are the most lovable method of file sharing around the globe. Thousands of favorite TV shows, movies, games, documentaries, songs and hit videos can be found on torrent sites. But not to forget that strict anti-piracy laws, DMCA acts and copyright trolls have left torrenters to pay hefty fines and even serve time in prison.

Considering the risks and threats to torrenters, PureVPN is the safest and most economical solution for safe torrenting. With one-click torrenting protection, PureVPN offers instant anonymity to users who want to download torrents without getting caught. Here are some more details about the best torrent VPN available.

After analyzing the service features of provider, we have uncovered the benefits and perks of using PureVPN for torrenting. Here are the top reasons you should use PureVPN for Torrenting:

  • L2TP & torrent supported servers
  • Unlimited downloads (no bandwidth caps)
  • Become anonymous to ISP
  • Safe, secure & anonymous torrenting
  • Evade DMCA notices & copyright trolls
  • Zero activity logging policy

Benefits & Advantages Offered to PureVPN Corporate Consumers

Unlike other VPN services, PureVPN seems pretty focused about entertaining customers with corporate-scale needs. Most VPN providers choose to skirt past the subject but our detailed PureVPN review showed that it has a separate set of web-pages for this purpose.

Corporate consumers get access PPTP, L2TP IPSEC, and SSL/SSTP protocols as well as the convenience of having a READY-TO-USE infrastructure setup for them. And that is beside the fact that corporate consumers are welcome to dedicated servers and a bandwidth of 10000 GB per month.

In addition, PureVPN also invites corporate customers to contact the company for custom packages designed to cater to specific needs. In fact, there is even a separate FAQ section for corporate users.


Speed Tests of PureVPN

To gauge the performance of  VPN provider in our PureVPN review, speed tests were conducted for PureVPN’s US and UK servers.

US Server Without PureVPN

For a server located in the United States, SpeetTest.Net reported the following Ping, Download speed and Upload speed for my internet connection when used without a PureVPN connection.

Speed Test of US Server without PureVPN

With PureVPN

Once I had connected PureVPN, SpeedTest.Net reported the following Ping, Download speed and Upload speed for my encrypted and tunneled internet connection.

Speed Test of US Server with PureVPN

The Ping came down considerably which is a definite improvement and the upload speed remained consistent which is also quite encouraging. However, note that PureVPN’s accessibility and anonymity seem to be coming at the cost of download speed.

UK Server Without PureVPN

For a server located in the United Kingdom, SpeetTest.Net reported the following Ping, Download speed and Upload speed for my internet connection when used without a PureVPN connection.

Speed Test of UK Server without PureVPN

With PureVPN

Once I had connected PureVPN, SpeedTest.Net reported the following Ping, Download speed and Upload speed for my encrypted and tunneled internet connection.

Speed Test of UK Server with PureVPN

I love the Ping I got from the PureVPN server but the download speed seems to have suffered once more while the upload speed hardly experienced any significant change.


PureVPN seems to be holding stable in upload speeds and that is good since VPN encryption relies heavily on data upload speed. The download speeds are moderate but I figure a bit of tweaking with the software and a little bit of nagging with the tech support should bring about an improvement.


Customer Support

PureVPN has a four-pillared customer support infrastructure. This constitutes support tickets, FAQs, forum and Live Chat support.

Support tickets

PureVPN offers support tickets that can be opened for tech support, billing issues and abuse complaints. In addition, the support tickets can also be used to request assistance for corporate plans and reseller support. I tested the responsiveness and effectiveness of PureVPN’s Support Ticket system – and I was very happy with the results.

My Question: How can I use PureVPN on a router if I do not have a DD-WRT flashed router? How can I turn it into a DD-WRT flashed router?
PureVPN’s Response: Thanks for contacting us. Please share with us a screen shot of your router’s WAN Settings page and the make and model of your router and we will let you know if you can configure VPN on your router or not.

The FAQs

The Frequently Asked Questions or FAQs provide detailed information on general queries related to payment, tech queries, router-based VPN connections and software queries.

The Forums

PureVPN forum section seems to be pretty active and PureVPN support representatives frequently jump in to help concerned customers.

The 24/7 Live Chat

The 24/7/365 live tech chat support is the crowning glory of PureVPN’s customer support. It is online 24 hours a day without fail and there are no bots involved. Customer support provides immediate assistance to queries and concerns. Smaller and mid-sized problems are almost always solved within moments. Problems relating to troubleshooting and setup assistance are resolved the fastest while user-account related problems tend to take longer.


PureVPN scores full marks in providing customers the comfort of knowing that there is always somebody (and by somebody I mean a real individual) present on the other side to help with service issues. The support team can probably be a little better but it beats some of the other VPN services out there that expect users to find respite in the limited customer support options of dropping trouble tickets and emails.

Tutorials Provided for Instant Assistance

Setup instructions are available for operating systems that are not catered to with custom software. These include Linux, HP WebOS (Only for WebOS Version 3.0.2 and above), OpenVPN (for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7), Blackberry, DD-WRT flashed routers and Boxee Box.

The setup instructions are great and explained in detail with screen-shots available for most tutorials. I would like to see a VPN service that has apps, clients, and software running for every operating system out there.

Payment Methods

The PureVPN review showed that it accepts over 50 payment methods. These include Paypal, credit cards, Alertpay, Bank Transfer, Paymentwall, and Bitcoin. PureVPN also takes Bitcoin as an accepted payment method. In my experience, this indicates a strong desire that the company harbors to remain on top of developing e-commerce trends.

PureVPN has partnered with Paymentwall to cater to customers wishing to pay with other e-payment methods such as AliPay, Webmoney, Yandex, PaySafeCard, Ukash, CashU, Giropay, Necard, Mercado Pago, MyCard Wallet, Qiwi, iDeal, Todito Cash, Mol Points, NeoSurf, Dotpay, and others.

You can choose your desired payment method in step 3 of the check-out process. Your choice will influence the next stage of the process.


Compatibility of PureVPN for different Platforms

PureVPN offers tutorials to set up the VPN service on Windows, Mac, Linux, HP Web OS, iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Routers and Boxee Box. However, custom PureVPN apps are only available for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.

While screenshots of PureVPN Windows app can be seen above, details on the functions and features of Mac app can be found in this detailed PureVPN Review.

PureVPN’s compatibility is gold! The service is compatible with almost every device and platform under the sun. In addition, PureVPN also works great for secondary devices such as gaming consoles and the rest.

An interesting episode I had with the PureVPN Live Chat support is worth mentioning here. I went through the full website and saw no content for using PureVPN on an XBox 360, so I decided to see if I finally had any dirt that I could use to mess with Live Chat support. Within 60 seconds of having initiated the conversation, I had been presented with a URL for a PDF document constituting a detailed setup guide for setting up PureVPN on XBox 360 – with and without router support. Kudos to PureVPN!

Setup PureVPN for Router & Use VPN on Multiple Devices

One of the positives about PureVPN is it’s all-round compatibility on different devices, including routers. By using PureVPN for routers, you are effectively securing all your devices that use Wi-Fi through that router. This way you don’t have to configure the VPN service individually on each of your devices.

Similarly, there are devices such as gaming consoles and set-top-boxes, on which you cannot configure a VPN directly. One of the ways to use a VPN on such devices is through a router. Therefore, PureVPN for router allows you to enjoy all the benefits of a VPN not matter which device you use.

Currently, PureVPN supports following routers:

For our PureVPN review, we inquired if it is possible to use the VPN service if we don’t have a flash router or the ones specified above. Their customer support was very responsive and helpful as they provided us with a guide, enabling us to configure PureVPN on our router.

Use PureVPN on Mac & Evade Cyber Threats and Geo-Restrictions

Having over 60 million users worldwide, Mac OS X stands as the second largest operating system after Windows. Interestingly, popularity behind Mac OS X lies on its robust security infrastructure. However, the 2015 Mac exploit proved that Apple’s built-in security infrastructure doesn’t provide reliable protection against modern cyber threats such as ransomware, hackers, identity thieves, data snoopers, phishers, and state surveillance.

To get around with the risks, PureVPN offers a broad range of strong encryption tunneling protocols, ensuring a military-grade protection against the odds of the cyber world.

In addition to this, 790+ servers in more than 140 countries allow users to unblock thousands of geo-blocked sites on Mac with just a single click. Moreover, an exclusive 24/7/365 live customer support provides timely assistance at times of query.

A Crash Course in Using Split Tunneling

In our PureVPN review, we will show you how to utilize the Split Tunneling feature. Split Tunneling only works if you have administrator rights to your system. A ‘guest’ using your system will not be able to use it. Once you enter the Split-Tunneling tab, you will first need to ‘Enable’ split tunneling. The Enable/Disable button is designed to identify the current split tunneling status. PureVPN also allows you to apply Split Tunneling permanently by checking the ‘Make Permanent’ check-box.

Once you have enabled Split Tunneling, there are two ways you can use it. The first is to allow the client to detect applications running on your system that can be subjected to PureVPN tunneling. Doing so will allow the PureVPN client to auto-detect and generate a list of applications.

Remember, the client software’s detection and a listing of applications do not mean that these applications are now under PureVPN’s coverage. To run any of applications with PureVPN coverage, click ‘Launch’ for that application and it will be launched under PureVPN coverage.

In case the PureVPN client fails to detect an application, you can manually add it to the list by using the ‘Add an Application’ feature on the lower right corner of the client interface.

Make sure you ‘Enable’ Split Tunneling before you hit ‘Connect’. This way the PureVPN will know that it is not supposed to tunnel the entire data traffic stream and will only begin tunneling an application once you launch the desired application.

PureVPN’s Optional Add-ons

PureVPN offers following optional add-ons and features to ensure maximum privacy, accessibility and online protection at all times.

1) NAT Firewall (for $2.99 per month)

The Network Address Translation Firewall (NAT Firewall) is PureVPN’s answer to users worried about end-to-end security – particularly at the VPN server end. The NAT Firewall is present at the server end and compensates for the hopeless firewall that is built into your Windows and easily penetrable.

A VPN is the ultimate online security solution, but it comes with the catch that your NAT Firewall becomes somewhat redundant, and you lose the protection that NAT Firewall provides.

Activating the PureVPN NAT Firewall will allow you to protect the IP address assigned to you by PureVPN’s server. Failing to use the NAT Firewall makes VPN users at risk from sophisticated hackers who exploit data packets to gain entry into the internet users’ system.

The image below shows how you can activate the NAT Firewall Add-on during check-out from the PureVPN website. The Add-on costs a meager $2.99 per month to secure your data stream from the VPN server end, thus ensuring safety that nobody’s granddaddy can get through (pun intended)!

2) Dedicated IP (for $1.99 per month)

This AddOn provides PureVPN users a fixed IP. This feature is usually used by specialized VPN users and heavy duty internet users. It is ideal for people who want to set up any form of the server for others users since it will give users access to the same fixed IP every time they log in.

The Dedicated IP AddOn works in addition to the standard dynamic IP plan, which means that you will have the standard dynamic IP service at your disposal, and can activate your fixed IP whenever you want.

3) Dedicated IP with DDoS Protection (for $2.99 per month)

With DDoS Protection IP provided by PureVPN, make sure to protect your devices against all sorts of DDoS attacks. You can get PureVPN’s Dedicated IP with DDoS Protection for additional $5.99/month.


Discontinued PureVPN Add-ons

Unfortunately, there are various PureVPN add-ons that are now discontinued. These include SmartDNS, dedicated streaming, and stealth browser add-ons. You can read on to find out the details about these discontinued addons.

1) SmartDNS

SmartDNS addon is no longer available for new users. However, if you are an existing PureVPN subscriber and signed up for their SmartDNS feature before its discontinuation, then PureVPN still offers support for such users.

With PureVPN’s SmartDNS, you can go past the geo-restrictions to access your favorite movies and TV channels. The VPNs are not generally directly supported on the SmartTVs and you have to manually configure them before you use them. SmartDNS is available on all the PureVPN packages and you do not have to pay a single penny to access it.

2) Dedicated Streaming

The Dedicated Streaming AddOn works by providing PureVPN users a special browser designed just for streaming purposes. Streaming anything in that browser will give you a 20Mbps speed boost. This speed boost is ideal for internet users who have slow internet connections and therefore fail to enjoy quality movie streaming because of buffering and lag.

3) StealthVPN Browser

The StealthVPN Browser is a VPN browser that is fully device/OS compatible and is the perfect tool for people who want a one-shot gun-shot solution to unblock websites without any extra hassle. The ultra-light super-accessible browser ensures a zero-logging experience for all your sensitive internet use.


PureVPN Internet Kill Switch

The PureVPN Internet Kill Switch has been designed to ensure uncompromising security.
The PureVPN Internet Kill Switch pauses all your internet traffic if your connection to the PureVPN server ever goes down unexpectedly.

This means that data will not leave your system unless it has been routed through PureVPN’s encrypted tunnel; because PureVPN’s Internet Kill Switch will stand guard. The Internet Kill Switch has been designed for online security lovers who are unwilling to compromise on their data security.

Once the Internet Kill Switch identifies that you have reconnected to the PureVPN server, it unpauses your internet data traffic. You can also manually deactivate PureVPN’s Kill Switch from the PureVPN if you wish to continue using the internet without VPN coverage.

According to the PureVPN FAQ on the Internet Kill Switch, the feature is accessible from PureVPN’s client software. It can be activated/deactivated by checking the feature titled “Activate Internet Kill Switch when VPN disconnects“.


Tutorials Provided

Setup instructions are available for operating systems that are not catered to with custom software. These include Linux, HP WebOS (Only for WebOS Version 3.0.2 and above), OpenVPN (for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7), Blackberry, DD-WRT flashed routers and Boxee Box.

The setup instructions are great and explained in detail with screen-shots available for most tutorials. I would like to see a VPN service that has apps, clients, and software running for every operating system out there.


PureVPN offers users access to five protocols: PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, SSTP, OpenVPN, and IKEv2. However, our user-experience turned out to be a little different. The protocol drop-down menu in the PureVPN client was limited to PPTP, L2TP, and SSTP.

In addition, StealthVPN protocol is among latest offerings of PureVPN, which supports an AES-256 bit of encryption. This protocol is currently available in the UK and is more secure than other protocols.

How to choose Protocols on PureVPN Dialer

You have to talk to the customer support about the remaining protocols and they told me that an individual looking to use Open VPN will have to connect VPN through alteration in internal configuration files while IKEv2 has to be connected manually. Clearly, PureVPN chose to exaggerate the VPN connection possibilities a little.


The PureVPN website states that all three pricing packages come with up to 256-bit encryption. It is comforting to know that PureVPN has a consumer-friendly feature set accompanying the pricing plans. You get at least 256-bit encryption no matter which pricing plan you choose to subscribe to. On the other hand, I find it slightly worrying that PureVPN uses the term “up to” in identifying protocol encryption levels.

What the website won’t tell you is that the PureVPN client offers four categorical encryption settings to choose from. Once you install the free PureVPN client, go to the ‘Settings’ tab for general system settings and look for ‘Security’.

PureVPN - Secure Virtual Private Network Connection
The drop-down menu for security will provide you the following four encryption options:


It is clear that PureVPN does not want you to acquire a quantification of encryption levels at any point. However, if you use your VPN without encryption, it fails the purpose behind the entire exercise of using a VPN. I would personally choose either option 3 or option 4 – anything else would be a compromise on value for money. I suggest you follow the same approach for the sake of your own safety.

Log And Privacy Policy

The PureVPN website explicitly states that it does not share, sell or rent user information. The PureVPN website uses browser cookies (which is acceptable and in line with industry standards). Data storage and protection policies state that consumer information is not shared with any third party unless and until the consumer specifically provides permission to do so at the point of information submission. Even then, the collected information is accessible to PureVPN’s technical and maintenance staff responsible for keeping the service running and roaring.

In few paragraphs on the PureVPN privacy policy page caught my attention and actually angered me a little. According to the ‘VPN Service Data Routing’ clause, PureVPN compensates for servers experiencing downtime by routing connection requests coming to the said server towards either an alternative server in the same country or a different country altogether if deemed appropriate by the service administrators.


I do not like the sound of that and I suggest you make life miserable for the Live Chat tech support if you ever feel that you are being routed to a second server at any time during your PureVPN session.

Get PureVPN Free Trial Offer & Experience Unbeatable Features

PureVPN does not offer a free trial – For users still unsure of PureVPN’s service, there is a 7-day money back guarantee. Needless to point out, 7 days is a little too short a margin considering how there are other VPN service providers out there who provide money back guarantees for as much as 30 days.

Conclusion is drawn from Review of PureVPN

PureVPN is a VPN for the middle-class netizen. If you don’t have enough money in your bank account to worry about losing a few hundred dollars every month, then PureVPN is the VPN for you. The server spread is beyond good and the customer support is exceptional. The client software is extremely user-friendly and the compatibility is almost pioneering. PureVPN gets my vote!

When I visited the website for this review and went to the pricing plan page, PureVPN had yet another discount campaign running and was giving 10% off on all plans. PureVPN is a big one for discounts offers. A trip through PureVPN review made it clear that PureVPN manages to come up with a new discount offer for just about every single holiday on the calendar – making PureVPN extremely affordable for people who are into smart buying.

In light of the cost-effectiveness, the moderately good service quality seems quite justified and all of it comes together to form a complete package that makes for a good return on investment.

VPN Unlimited review (also known as KeepSolid VPN Unlimited review, Unlimited VPN review, and review VPN Unlimited) unveiled interesting facts about the VPN service. It boasts attractive features and benefits, offering servers in over 70 different countries. With VPN Unlimited, you get high compatibility, leading edge protocols and military grade encryption, all wrapped up in economical pricing plans.

Pros of VPN Unlimited

Cons of VPN Unlimited

What is VPN Unlimited?

VPN Unlimited is a VPN provider owned by KeepSolid Inc. and offers online security and anonymity. It keeps your confidential data safe from hackers, spammers, phishes, malware, and various other cyber criminals. In addition, our VPN Unlimited review showed that the service is excellent for accessing websites and streaming services that are geo-blocked or censored.

Although we could not find the exact launch date of VPN Unlimited, the service is relatively new. It offers servers in popular regions and is currently working on resolving various bugs based on user feedback.

How does VPN Unlimited Work?

In order to gauge how does VPN Unlimited works, we put the provider to the test. When you connect to a server provided by VPN Unlimited, it creates encrypted tunnels between your device and the internet. What this does is that it secures your internet traffic and prevents it from hackers and others alike.

Likewise, VPN Unlimited makes you anonymous over the web by hiding your IP address. It has the ability to mask your original IP address and replace it with the IP of its own server.  Therefore, if you are located in Sweden and connect to a VPN server located in the UK, you will adopt the IP address of the UK based VPN server. Hence, no one can track your true destination. Here is a video illustrating how VPN Unlimited works:

Pricing Plans of VPN Unlimited

VPN Unlimited is an affordable VPN service that offers great features bundled up in unimaginable prices. We have tested many services, but our VPN Unlimited review proves that it really is a reasonable VPN provider. VPN Unlimited offers three different pricing plans to choose from. However, one of the striking differences among the pricing plan is the ‘Infinity’ lifetime offer.

vpn unlimited review


You can also select a monthly plan or a yearly plan. Another benefit offered by VPN Unlimited is that it offers a 7-day money back guarantee period. During this timeframe, you can test the service, use various features, and evaluate if the VPN is suitable for you or not.


VPN Unlimited Lifetime Subscription Review

Our review of VPN Unlimited lifetime subscription plan shows that this is an ingenious pricing plan and highly attractive for many VPN users. You can pay one time and have a VPN Unlimited subscription until infinity.

However, it does beg the question, if another firm acquires the company, will your subscription still hold? In many cases, lifetime subscription usually accounts for a 5-year plan. Will VPN Unlimited’s lifetime subscription expire after five years? These are some of the technicalities we weren’t so sure about in our VPN Unlimited review.

Free VPN Unlimited

VPN Unlimited offers a 7-day free trial for all new users. This is was a fantastic feature we observed in VPN Unlimited review. You can use the service and all its features on different devices for seven days. We reckon this is sufficient time to test the VPN service and find out its pros and cons. Therefore, free VPN Unlimited is a refreshing option in the VPN industry, as not many providers such a feature.

Server Spread

The VPN provider is exceptional at providing servers in major location all around the world. At the time of writing this VPN Unlimited review, the VPN service offers over 1000 servers spread across more than 70 different countries. A majority of the servers are located in the United States, followed by Canada and United Kingdom.

The server shows that the service has grown over the years and added more locations to its list. When compared to other services, the server list is on par with established VPN providers. However, considering the VPN provider is relatively new, we were impressed with the attitude of VPN Unlimited towards offering new servers. If anyone cannot find a server in their region, they can share their location with VPN Unlimited.

major Server location of VPN unlimited


Protocols & Encryption

As we discussed earlier, a VPN works by using protocols and encryption to protect your data. However, these protocols and encryptions vary in terms of strength. We inquired VPN Unlimited while reviewing the service about which protocols they offer.

Fortunately, VPN Unlimited offers OpenVPN protocol for Windows, Mac OS X, Android, iOS and Linux devices. This is a positive aspect about the provider, as OpenVPN is the strongest protocol currently available. Its open-source nature and compatibility with different encryption algorithms makes it a powerful defense against various threats.

OpenVPN protocol supports Blowfish 128-bit encryption and AES-128 and 256-bit encryption. In addition, VPN Unlimited also offers IPsec IKEv1 protocol, which is compatible on Mac and iOS. However, IPsec protocol only supports AES 128 encryption.

KeepSolid Wise

VPN Unlimited offers KeepSolid Wise technology that offers an additional boost to your privacy and security. KeepSolid Wise utilizes TCP 443 port and OpenVPN protocol to make your data traffic undetectable. Your VPN traffic is transformed into a normal internet traffic, making it difficult for anyone to identify that it is routed through a VPN.

Compatibility of VPN Unlimited with Different Platforms

One the pros that we identified in our VPN Unlimited review was its overall compatibility. The provider can be used on multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Linux. In addition, VPN Unlimited also offers browser extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

 Platform Competibility of VPN Unlimited

VPN Unlimited For PC

VPN Unlimited offers a sleek and easy to use software for Windows PC. We were pleased with the layout, design, and navigation of VPN Unlimited app for PC. All the actions were one click away. Right from the onset, you can enter your account details, select the server you want to use, and have encrypted VPN connection.

The Windows client also lets you sign up from the app itself. Alternatively, you can also signup using a Google account or Facebook account. Similarly, you can also check the server load before connecting to a server. This is a neat feature available on VPN Unlimited for PC.

VPN Unlimited For Mac

Just the like the VPN client for Windows, the software of VPN Unlimited for Mac is also very well built and has all the features. It is neatly designed and allows any user to quickly come to grips with a VPN software. In addition, you can access different options and the app comes with built-in DNS leak protection. This way your IP address is not leaked to outsiders and your privacy is preserved at all times.

VPN Unlimited For Android

The Android app of VPN Unlimited is free to download from Google Play Store. The app is lightweight and has an admirable design. We have not come across many VPN services that provide beautiful apps with appropriate font size and background color. However, the annoying part of the app were the frequent popup marketing messages, promoting VPN Unlimited’s other features.

VPN Unlimited for iPhone

The VPN Unlimited for iPhone app follows similar aesthetics as the Android app. The built quality of the app is top notch and offers unprecedented features. As we mentioned earlier, the VPN Unlimited apps are very stylish and easy to use. The app for iPhone is one of the best VPN apps you can use today.

VPN Unlimited for Chrome

In the wide list of apps offered by VPN Unlimited, there are browser extensions as well. For our review, we tested VPN Unlimited for Chrome. The browser extension offers numerous servers and will help you secure your browser’s privacy. The extension doesn’t bombard your browser with unnecessary advertisements and popups, which was a pleasing sight to see. However, we did encounter some issues of IP leakage on the Chrome browser extension. This is something VPN Unlimited show look into.


VPN Unlimited addon for Chrome


VPN Unlimited Compared to Other VPN Providers

This is the section of VPN Unlimited review where we put the provider side by side with other VPN services to see how it performs on different attributes.

VPN Unlimited vs. PIA

When we put VPN Unlimited against PIA (Private Internet Access), there are stark differences between the two providers. PIA is an established brand in the industry and commands commendable user base. PIA offers more number of servers than VPN Unlimited; however, the latter is available in more regions.

VPN Unlimited takes the lead in terms of software and app design quality. Both the VPN services are compatible on different devices, but PIA’s VPN clients are nowhere as good as VPN Unlimited. That said, PIA takes user privacy seriously and is quick to resolve any privacy related concern. It has cemented a reputation as being the most secure VPN services currently in use; something VPN Unlimited lacks at this stage.

VPN Unlimited vs. Hotspot Shield

Hotspot Shield is a freeware VPN service and has grown exceptionally over the years. However, being a free software, it has its drawbacks. For instance, the amount of ads are infuriating and will constantly plague your screen. On the other hand, VPN Unlimited has a pleasant user experience. Therefore, in VPN Unlimited vs. Hotspot Shield, VPN Unlimited takes the lead as it offers more servers, features, and better online security than Hotspot Shield.

VPN Unlimited vs. ExpressVPN

When we compared VPN Unlimited to ExpressVPN, the comparison showed contrasting differences between the two providers. For starters, the price different between the two is colossal. ExpressVPN charges significantly higher premium prices compared to VPN Unlimited. The number of servers and protocol options are more in ExpressVPN to VPN Unlimited.

However, in VPN Unlimited vs. ExpressVPN, we preferred the apps offered by VPN Unlimited. Likewise, VPN Unlimited offers interesting additional benefits, such as a dedicated IP option. Therefore, if we were to choose one of the providers, we would suggest ExpressVPN over VPN Unlimited. This is because of the overall performance and security measures offered by ExpressVPN.

NordVPN vs. VPN unlimited

NordVPN is a premier VPN service that is in the industry for quite a while. It offers nifty features and great performance on select servers. When put head to head, NordVPN vs. VPN Unlimited, NordVPN comes up trumps on many factors. It has more servers in numerous regions, the apps are well made and easy to use, and there are attractive add-ons as well. However, VPN Unlimited prices are reasonable as compared to NordVPN.

VPN Unlimited for Torrenting

Sadly, VPN Unlimited does not allow the use of torrenting. Under its FAQ section, the provider clearly states that it had to throttle certain user’s speeds who were using the service for torrenting. Therefore, you should not use VPN Unlimited for torrenting and look for other providers that support file sharing.

Customer Support

VPN Unlimited offers customer support through email ticketing system, FAQ section, and knowledge base section. Sadly, we didn’t find a live chat feature in our VPN Unlimited review. This feature would have been highly beneficial for new users.

However, their email ticketing system is highly responsive. We inquired on two different occasions and got a prompt response within few minutes on our email. This is a sign of a premium VPN provider. In addition, the knowledge base it quite dense and there numerous articles and guides on different topics.

Similarly, VPN Unlimited offers manuals for configuring the service on different operating systems. It also contains systematic guides for different devices, such as routers and streaming devices (Roku and Apple TV).

Privacy Policy

The privacy policy of VPN Unlimited has nothing obscure about it. However, the privacy policy mentioned unstructured, so you will have to read through the entire content to find what information is collected and how is it used.

VPN Unlimited clearly states that it doesn’t record any internet activities of its users and has no logging policy. This is a good sign, as your privacy is secure at all times. VPN Unlimited does record the total amount of web traffic for each session.

Additional Features

In addition to basic VPN service, VPN Unlimited offers some attractive add-ons.  These include:


To wrap up our VPN Unlimited review, we would recommend the VPN service to all user. It is neat little VPN service that offers tons of features at unimaginable low prices. When compared to its competitors, VPN Unlimited matches the best services from the industry.

One of the best aspects of VPN Unlimited was the quality of its software and apps. They were top-notch and shadowed established VPN providers. From simple navigation to how they are designed, VPN Unlimited apps were a remarkable sight. And, to top things of, the overall performance is impressive as well.

PureVPN for Kodi

There are many VPN providers for Kodi, but not many can beat PureVPN in terms of its server spread. You can access any Kodi add-on using one of the servers offered by PureVPN. An added advantage of using this VPN is that it is available on VPN Manager for OpenVPN add-on. Therefore, you can setup PureVPN directly onto Kodi and enjoy streaming any content.

However, when we tested PureVPN, we ran the software in the background on our desktop and then launched Kodi. The overall experience was good as there were no buffering delays, IP leakages, and we accessed blocked add-ons in an instant.

Second on our list for VPN on Kodi is NordVPN. The provider also offers wide server range for you to unblock various add-ons on Kodi. We tested NordVPN while running Kodi and were pleased with its performance. Not only did the VPN provider unblocked streaming add-ons, but it also secured our identity.

One of the prevailing issues with Kodi is getting into trouble with copyright trolls. Since a majority of the streams fetched by Kodi work on BitTorrent protocol, you could get face DMCA notices, fines, or something even worse. This is where NordVPN’s Double VPN feature and P2P support comes into play.


A relatively new VPN provider in the industry, PrivateVPN offers attractive features. One of the standout points about PrivateVPN is its user-friendly apps and software. You can download the service on Windows, iOS, Android or Mac, and enjoy unlimited entertainment on Kodi.

Secondly, PrivateVPN also has a price advantage over other VPN providers. Being the cheapest Kodi VPN out there, you can gain instant access while preserving your privacy online. Therefore, if you are looking for an economical VPN for Kodi, give PrivateVPN a try.


ExpressVPN is one of leading VPN services in the industry. It boasts loads of features that will help you secure your privacy and security on any device. When you pair ExpressVPN with Kodi, the results are not short of outstanding. However, we did experience variability in server locations in the UK.

In addition, ExpressVPN offers native software and applications for all devices and is compatible on routers as well. That said, the steep pricing plans are the only kicker in this deal. ExpressVPN is amongst the most expensively priced VPN providers currently in the industry. Therefore, if prices are not a big deal, try ExpressVPN for unlocking content on Kodi.

Ivacy VPN

Lastly, we have Ivacy VPN service for Kodi. The provider offers detailed guides and tutorials for Kodi in its knowledge base. Subscribers can follow the steps to configure the service through its native software, OpenELEC, or via other means. Our analysis puts Ivacy at fifth position for best Kodi VPNs. This is precisely because of its high prices. However, it is one of the few VPN services that offer compatibility on Kodi and is worth a try.

Is Kodi Legal?

Many Kodi users have been asking this question and the simple answer is yes, Kodi is legal. That said, its not as straightforward as you might think. The problem lies in how Kodi brings you content for streaming and its open-source nature.

You are able to stream content on Kodi through numerous add-ons. However, not all add-ons are official. If you stick to the official Kodi add-ons, then there is no issue of legality. On the other hand, third party add-ons offer free content from various sources, which are illegal in many countries. These include streams working on BitTorrent protocol and unsolicited websites.

Since Kodi is an open source software – which means you can customize the software by accessing its program codes – it is near to impossible for Kodi to shut down these third party add-ons.

And, whenever Kodi shuts down a repository or an add-on, a new alternative or mirror rises up. Therefore, Kodi itself is completely legal, but the way third party add-ons offer content for streaming raises a lot of questions about its legality.

Android Boxes Supported by Kodi VPN

Android boxes, also known as Kodi boxes, are excellent for watching content on your television screen. They turn your normal LED TV into a smart TV, having the same functionalities as an Android based smart phone. The best thing about Android boxes is that Kodi is readily available on almost all versions. You can either find Kodi through Google play store or download the APK file for the software.


As far as Kodi VPN supported Android boxes go, any VPN provider that offers an app for Android is compatible with an Android box. The most simple and quick way of setting up a Kodi VPN on Android box is by looking up the provider on Google Play Store and installing the app. On the contrary, you can also setup a VPN manually or through ES Explorer.

Why Do I Need VPN for Kodi?

To get the most out of Kodi and enjoy limitless streaming you will require a Kodi VPN add-on. It will provide every bit of entertainment that lacks in Kodi. Following are the key benefits of using Kodi VPN:

As of late, OpenELEC has started to display various errors to Kodi users. Here are some OpenELEC errors and their fixes:

  1. Check the Log for More Information: currently, only PIA VPN is compatible with OpenELEC, but this error appears when you try to setup PIA. To fix this problem, we would recommend that you follow the steps for VPN Manager for OpenVPN and use the desired VPN through this add-on.
  2. Size Check Failed Error: this issue is present in Jarvis v16 version of Kodi and occurs when you try to update the ION system. One way overcoming this issue is by resizing the partitions through Tuxboot, as it will lay out the new partitions as SDA1 and SDA2.
  3. Error Script Failed VPN for OpenELEC: if you are using a Raspberry Pi 2, you will encounter this issue frequently. The problem lies with the small CPU or limited processing power of Pi2. One way of resolving this issue is by updating OpenELEC version and use a Micro SD card for additional storage. If that doesn’t help, then we would recommend upgrading to Pi 3.

5 Best Popcorn time VPN for 2017

Popcorn Time VPN is the most secure way to watch your favorite content. It provides you with complete privacy and freedom so that you are not left alone and enjoy streaming to its fullest. With Popcorn Time VPN, you can take a deep breath and relax since its security protocols and data encryption features have your back.

Why Popcorn Time?

PT is a streaming service that has a bizarre resemblance with the world’s most popular online streaming service, Netflix. But contrary to Netflix, Popcorn Time provides its streaming services for free using BitTorrent protocol.

From the latest movies to some of the biggest TV shows in the history of Television, you can watch all the episodes on Popcorn Time VPN in HD by simply downloading and running the streaming service. It downloads the file through BitTorrent in the background and provides you with real-time streaming.

Is it Safe to Use Popcorn Time?

Here comes the tricky part! While the stream lovers would go ahead and still stream the content directly, to those who think their online security is at risk, we must warn you, it really is at stake.

PT clearly warns the users on its website about their own risk because the service might be considered as illegal in their respective countries.

Since it works on BitTorrent protocol, copyright holders deem the service illegal in various regions. Australia, UK, Germany, Belgium, and other parts of Europe have already ordered ISPs to block the streaming service.

Popcorn Time Unblocked

So how can Popcorn Time be unblocked? You access the service safely and anonymously through two methods:

  1. Use a Popcorn time VPN
  2. Use a Proxy service

Secure your content with Popcorn Time VPN

A Popcorn Time VPN will protect your online identity by masking your IP address. Thus, you can enjoy any TV show or movie of your choice anonymously. PT uses torrents to broadcast video content. Hence, the other users those who share the same file will see an IP address provided by your VPN service.

By connecting to a VPN server, you can protect all your online activities. As a result, your ISP will not be able to trace your online activities. Since a VPN encrypts the connection between the VPN server and user’s device.  Hence, you obtain complete online freedom.

NAT Firewalls

There are VPN services in which NAT Firewalls feature comes in built-in form. If you want to use torrents to watch movies and other video content, you must disable the feature. Otherwise, you will not be able to stream content from torrents.

The NAT Firewalls blocks connection from peers on P2P network. Hence, torrents are unable to stream the required content for the users. You should make sure to disconnect the feature as soon as you avail any VPN service by changing the settings.

Sometimes, you are unable to disable the feature therefore; you should use port forwarding method. This manual approach allows the VPN service to dedicate a specific port that supports P2P traffic.

Why using proxy for popcorn time is not secure?

When you connect to a proxy service, your IP address is masked during the process. Therefore, no one can identify your identity in the torrent swarms.

However, unlike a VPN, a proxy does not encrypt or tunnels your data traffic. This is a shortcoming of Popcorn Time proxy services.

If your ISP or the government decides to inspect your internet data packets, they can identify that you’ve been using the streaming service. Due to this issue, a VPN is more secure than a proxy service.

Best VPN for Popcorn Time

We would save you the time and energy and will recommend you to use Best Popcorn Time VPN, especially if you are located in a region where the government has a strong hold on your cyber activities.

Any Popcorn Time VPN that you choose assigns you a new IP address, giving you a whole new look in the virtual world to keep you hidden from being tracked.

Best Dedicated IP VPN Providers – Update August 2017

Over the years, VPN users have been raging war amongst themselves, questioning which is better: dedicated IP or shared IP. Each provides unique benefits and can be used in for various purposes. To settle the dispute, we will compare pros & cons of both types of IP’s and guide you about how to buy a dedicated IP VPN in 10 simple steps.

Dedicated IP vs. Shared IP

To identify the difference between a shared IP and dedicated IP address, consider the example of a subway vs. a car. A shared IP is like a subway train, full of passengers that caters all of them at the same time. On another hand, a dedicated IP address is like your personal car, which is being driven and used solely by you.

Dedicated and Shared IP addresses have unique advantages and drawbacks. However, dedicated IP takes an edge over shared IP in terms of accessibility and performance. So the primary difference between the two is that a shared IP address is shared with thousands of users, while a dedicated or static IP is assigned to a unique subscriber.

How to Buy Dedicated IP VPN in 10 Simple Steps

Here’s how to buy a dedicated IP VPN:

VPN With Dedicated IP Address

The dedicated IP address, if assigned to you, can’t be altered or utilized by any other person on earth. It remains constant every time you log on to the internet.

On another hand, the dynamic IP address keeps on changing every time you log in as it is being shared by multiple users at given instance. However, both IP addresses have their own perks and limitations.

Comment 1: I’ve been looking for a way to get Netflix in Singapore because that is where I live. I want to know if dedicated vpn will help get me through their security check?

Answer 1: Hello, VPN service provider hands out the same IP address to its many users. This isn’t something dangerous, but when it comes to Netflix it can be a little tricky. If Netflix somehow bans an IP address similar to yours, technically it will also prevent your entrance to the Netflix website. How do you overcome this problem? You can overcome by getting a dedicated IP address which will only be handed out to you. This way, you can freely use Netflix.

Cheap Dedicated IP VPN

A dedicated IP address without any doubt is a hotshot that offers an instant access to thousands of on-demand entertainment sites. In addition, various mailing services including Gmail and Yahoo restrict your access when you access them with a shared IP address. To bypass the restrictions, a dedicated IP VPN serves as the safest and unrivaled solution. But, affordability plus reliability plays a major role while choosing a Cheap VPN service.

We have thus presented below the cheapest dedicated IP VPN services that offer cutting-edge privacy features and top-of-the-line service to users. Not to mention, these services don’t compromise a bit when it comes to online security and data privacy. Over and above, ultra economic plans and superior offerings make these services stand out among rest:

Dedicated IP VPN for Netflix

The largest American on-demand entertainment service Netflix prides itself on having more than 75 million active subscribers worldwide. With an extensive collection of media, Netflix offers streaming of some of the best movies, TV shows, documentaries, popular videos, music videos and more media. However, Netflix started to block VPN users earlier this year, when majority of users were found using VPN for accessing media libraries of other regions.

Dedicated IP VPN Netflix

Now, if this is the case for you and you’re seeing above message as an error, then unfortunately Netflix has identified you through its VPN detection mechanism. But happily, you can still access the foreign media libraries of Netflix via dedicated IP VPN.

Generally, VPN providers offer shared IP address that is used by many users at the same time. When Netflix detects a certain IP address, it flags it and adds it to its blacklist. A dedicated IP address on another hand is unique and is assigned to a specific user only. Since this unique IP is under your control, there are very low chances that Netflix will flag the IP. In this way, it aids you into accessing foreign media libraries without any restrictions.

4 Perks of Using a Dedicated IP VPN

Despite being an additional feature, a dedicated IP address offers a list full of advantages which subscribers can enjoy. Here’re some its key benefits:

Bypass VPN Blocking of Netflix & Other On-demand Entertainment Services

For years, VPN has been serving Netflix fans by changing their geo-location and providing them access to exclusive TV series and shows available on US library. However, Netflix’s new compliance law has banned thousands of users using a VPN services and restricted them from accessing foreign media libraries.

The streaming site identifies your VPN connection by detecting your dynamic IP address, which might be associated with another Netflix account in the past or might have been used by another user using the same VPN connection.

To get around with the restrictions, a dedicated or static IP VPN comes into play. With a static IP, Netflix thinks that you’re originally located in the US and does not suspect that you are accessing the service using a VPN as the IP address has only been used by you previously. Easy
  isn’t it?

Enjoy High-Speed Streaming

To achieve great streaming speeds, a static IP should be used as it is never shared among other users. On the other hand, a shared IP address offered by a VPN is shared among multiple subscribers simultaneously, thus impacting your connection and streaming speed. We suggest streaming lovers to choose one of the specified static IP VPN services mentioned above and experience the blazing fast streaming speed.

Robust Protection Against DDoS & Reduced Lag in Online Gaming

If you’re an online gameholic, then you may have encountered a DDoS attack in your life. The Distributed Denial of Service or DDoS attack is a nightmare for any gamer. It is acclaimed for plaguing e-sports and online gaming battles for a long time and has been increasing ever since. To get the best out from online gaming, a dedicated IP VPN offers 100% protection against DDoS attacks.

In addition to this, it also helps to reduce lag and latency that might disrupt your online gaming. When you are connected to a normal internet connection, you gaming data packets have to travel through congested pathways, creating lag and delay during the process. But with a static IP, all you data is routed through clear and uncongested pathways. As a result, gamers enjoy fast, lag-free and uninterrupted gaming experience.

Secure Your Online Transactions

An unbeatable advantage of using dedicated IP VPN includes top-notch protection of your financial transactions. It allows you to perform credit card transactions with only particular static IP assigned to you.

So, next time no hacker, identity thieve or any other cyber goon can make fraudulent transactions using your credit card credentials. On the contrary, the dynamic IP VPN doesn’t offer adequate protection during e-transactions, as it is being shared with various users.

Advantages of Using a Shared IP VPN

Here are some benefits offered by a shared IP VPN:


Since non-static IP is being shared with hundreds of users, it is still widely utilized around the world. The reason lies behind its wallet-friendly cost. Dedicated IP requires certain additional resources; that’s why you will see it as an add-on, costing you an additional price.

Easy Server Switching

With a static IP VPN, switching a server is a tough row to hoe. For instance, if you want to change your location from France to Germany while using a dedicated IP address of France, then you will have to acquire a new static IP address.

On the other hand, a shared IP VPN can switch a user’s location in a matter of seconds. Moreover, it allows you to unblock geo-restricted streaming services instantly from anywhere.

Greater Anonymity

Among numerous benefits offered by static IP, anonymity is one area that the add-on lacks behind. While using dynamic IP, you achieve greater anonymity as multiple users share the same address. Since this is not possible in dedicated IP, your anonymity isn’t as secure as under shared IP.

The Wrap Up

Shared IP VPN have tremendous advantages including cost-effectiveness, availability across the globe and much more, but a dedicated IP VPN has its own bonuses, offering benefits that cannot be achieved through dynamic IP.

With a static IP VPN, a user can access financial information, confidential data, and unblock unlimited geo-blocked streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, Fox Go, BBC iPlayer) securely and safely. It is a one-stop solution for movie lovers, privacy enthusiasts, business persons & gameholics.

The VPN services specified above offer dedicated IP add-on, 24/7/365 customer support, top-notch encryption protocols, cutting-edge network infrastructure, and more features to cater the needs of netizens around the world.

How a BBC iPlayer VPN Helps to Enjoy BBC iPlayer After Unblocking

If you don’t have the steam, it will not let you stream! That is the way the BBC iPlayer train rolls. I’ve reviewed a number of streaming websites, and the BBC iPlayer is one of the best streaming services there is. However, you will need a good bandwidth to stream content on BBC iPlayer.

The website is bandwidth intensive and chooses to take the high road by refusing to stream for you if you are not equipped with the bandwidth to adequately stream and enjoy the content.

There are two ways to go about if you fear running into this notification:

Option A – Ask your Internet Service Provider to upgrade your package

The old-school technique is to upgrade to a heavier and more expensive subscription. Clarify to your Internet Service Provider that the reason behind your shift in a plan is to stream frequently. Your internet service provider may have some tips to help you boost internet speed without experiencing heavy additional costs.

Option B – Choose a BBC iPlayer VPN service that facilitates streaming fanatics

VPN service providers know that subjecting data traffic to the whole encrypt-tunnel-decrypt process can have a bit of a drag on speed/bandwidth. That is why most VPN for BBC iPlayer choose to go the extra mile for streaming fanatics by providing add-ons – some for free, and others at low cost. Likewise, the best VPN for BBC iPlayer can also get rid of any bandwidth throttling conducted by your ISP.

Boosting Stream Quality for BBC iPlayer

You can use various add-ons offered by a VPN to enhance your streaming experience. Below listed additional features will allow you to watch BBC iPlayer outside UK without compromising streaming quality.


A feature rapidly gaining popularity amongst the streaming-addicted VPN community is split-tunneling. Split-tunneling lets you tunnel data sending/receiving from specific applications instead of making all your data traffic run through your VPN.

Using split-tunneling on your internet browser will only tunnel the data that is being transmitted to-and-from your browser while you stream content from BBC iPlayer in your browser. All other traffic transmitting to-and-from your system will not be tunneled by your VPN.

Speed Boost

Some VPN service providers offer low-cost high-impact speed boosts. These speed boosts will pump up your speed significantly and allow you to watch BBC iPlayer outside the UK without ever experiencing the discomfort of buffering lag.

These add-ons are rarely marketed on the home page and if you find a VPN service provider you like, but can’t find any details on additional speed boosts, don’t hesitate to ask customer support.

Contrary to popular belief, VPNs are not expensive. And, if you are a smart shopper, then you will make sure you save when you spend. You can save by making sure you buy the subscription package with the least monthly cost.

And, if you are a true shopaholic, then I suggest you wait for a little until VPN service providers announce discount campaigns. Discount campaigns come out every summer, winter, boxing day, new year and, Christmas; so buying a 3, 4 or 6 month subscription should never be a problem.



Why the World Loves BBC iPlayer

BBC iPlayer is a treasure trove of entertainment. BBC iPlayer has a constantly updating media library and streams like the wind. If you think all of this sounds too good to be true without a catch; you are not mistaken my fellow Netizen.

BBC iPlayer has not beaten other streaming websites like YouTube in terms of popularity for two reasons:

You get three options when you stream with BBC iPlayer

You won’t get any of this on YouTube, Daily Motion, or any other online streaming website

BBC iPlayer Not Working Issue. Fixed!

After the release of BBC iPlayer’s streaming policy, many users have started facing problems while using BBC VPN for accessing iPlayer from abroad. In addition, users have inquired on different forums about  BBC iPlayer VPN block, is BBC blocking VPN and why is BBC iPlayer not working with VPN? to end the frustration, we hereby confirm that BBC iPlayer blocked servers of PIA VPN, resulting in blockage to BBC iPlayer. However, if you face similar error message then choose one of the VPN BBC iPlayer mentioned earlier in the table.

All the specified BBC iPlayer VPN workaround without any hassles in every country of the world. You can use one of the mentioned VPN iPlayer and enjoy seamless media streaming instantly.

Change DNS Settings & Watch BBC iPlayer Abroad

Changing DNS settings is one way to access BBC iPlayer abroad from different regions. But, this method isn’t preferred by security researchers and tech-geeks, as it doesn’t offer strong digital protection and encryption protocols. You can easily find a list of DNS servers on the internet, but many of them may be targeted by hackers.

Considering the threat to viewers’ data privacy, we suggest users choose from one of the recommended VPN services and stream BBC iPlayer abroad safely with robust data protection.

Like BBC iPlayer? Hurry!

So, interested in any of the programs currently available on BBC iPlayer? If you are nodding your head right now, then you need to hurry because programs are normally only available on the website for a maximum of seven days, if not less.

There is a download feature in case you are short on time but that is also clocked. Once you download a file, you have a total of 30 days to play it; and once you play it, you have a total of 7 days to complete watching it.


This strategy might sound a little annoying, but it is perhaps the only way to fight redundancy (one of the internet’s never-ending plagues) and ensure that there is always fresh content available for your viewing pleasure.

Thankfully a VPN subscription and setup takes no more than a few minutes. Subscription plans offered by leading VPN service providers are two-stepped, support a wide variety of payment methods and come with a money back guarantee you can count on. In addition, VPN service providers also offer free VPN software so that you have a dashboard to manage your VPN connection at all times. So, you can enjoy BBC iPlayer outside UK without any hurdles.

You are always using two IP addresses.

External (Public) IP address:

Go to and type in ‘what is my IP’. On hitting enter, you will be presented with a list of search results headed by a line stating your public IP address.

This is the IP address that the internet sees you are under. If you are sitting in a school, office or any setting in which multiple computers are connected to the internet through the same Internet Service Provider, then you are probably sharing this IP address with the rest of the people on your local network.

This is the IP address that BBC iPlayer will detect. If your IP address does not belong to the UK, you won’t be able to stream content from the website. But, when you connect to a UK based VPN server, BBC iPlayer will detect your IP address to be that of UK and will allow you to watch BBC iPlayer from anywhere.

Internal IP Address:

Your internal IP address is used to enable communication between your computer and other computers on your local network. Every system has a unique internal IP address. To check your internal IP address, open command prompt, type in ‘ipconfig’ and hit ‘Enter.’

You will be presented with a brief listing of your current internal IP configuration. Your internal IP address is irrelevant to unblock BBC iPlayer, and therefore VPNs will not tamper with it.


It is important to note that BBC iPlayer’s TV service is subjected to rigorous region-based restrictions. If you plan on using BBC iPlayer’s Radio service, you will be pleased to know that most of the content offered by the Radio service is not region restricted.

However, if you fancy using BBC iPlayer TV service, then make sure to strap on a VPN service provider to your internet session before you go out streaming. This way you will be able to watch BBC iPlayer outside the UK and enjoy endless content from anywhere.

Most VPN service providers in the industry will offer you at least one Canadian VPN server on average. And even though the geo-restrictions on websites in Canada haven’t peaked up as yet, the VPNs for Canada actually help the users combatting against the cybercriminals and malwares. Therefore, almost every other VPN provider makes sure they have a server in Canada as well.

Keep your eye on the prize and be as shrewd as you can be when looking at Canadian VPN service providers.

I judged and compared pricing plans, servers, customer support, payment methods, compatibility, tutorials, protocols and encryption, privacy policies, free trial availability and additional services before coming up with this list of the best Canada VPN providers in the industry today.

Most VPN service providers choose to focus their server expansion efforts on the US, followed closely by either the UK or Canada. This means that you can expect to find a substantial number of Canada VPN servers in most cases.

Why Canada Needs VPNs

If you are an internet user looking for a Canada IP and want to access North American websites/servers, then there is a little bit of background information that you should have.Why need best Canada VPN

More than 60% of smartphone users in Canada are not aware of the ways in which they can protect themselves online. They are not aware of the threats they are surrounded with. No wonder why 220,000 Canadians and US residents lose their jobs yearly due to the increasing cyber-crimes.

According to a latest report by McAfee, the losses of $400 billion are reported annually due to the cybercrimes all over the world, of which the losses of $3 billion is solely reported by Canada. The figures show that Canada isn’t safe from the clutches of cyber-criminals.

The fact of the matter is that you just don’t know if you should be afraid of the good guys or the bad guys anymore. At one end, Snowden exposed the NSA for the global spying psycho that it is; while at the other end, cyber-criminals continue to get bolder with every cyber heist. I think it is safe to say that ordinary internet users without a Canada VPN often find themselves between a rock and a hard place!

Nothing Guarantees Accessibility like a Canadian VPN

The Canadian government is very lenient when it comes to internet accessibility. As long as it isn’t child pornography, every website in the world is accessible to individuals with a Canadian IP.

Canada is a highly digitally-accessible country with almost no geo-restrictions in place. Using a Canada VPN, there is virtually no part of the internet that you cannot travel to.

Just about every website accessible to US-based internet users is accessible to Canadian internet users – which means that if your objective behind acquiring a Canadian IP was fully Canadian, then you also get access to US internet content as a bonus!

Best Canada VPN Helps You Escape Five Eyes

Canada may not be as cruel with its censorship policies as China, but it poses a serious threat to your online security. Since it is a part of Five Eyes – an intelligence alliance which comprises of United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and Canada, the online privacy of a user is torn to pieces by the Canadian and other member authorities.

According to the signed treaty, the member countries are bound by the agreement to share the recorded data with each other. Canada was hit with a controversy back in 2013 when a judge, Richard Mosley ordered the CSIS (Canada’s own version of NSA) to stop sending the recorded data to other member countries.

The best Canada VPN can help you protect against the unwanted snooping and surveillance by the Five Eyes and other online spy agencies. The Canada VPN is considered as an epitome for online protection since the protocols are hard to break by and the encryption is impossible to decode. The best VPN for Canada also provides you with good grounds of hiding behind a pseudo server and ensures that you remain untraceable and safe.

Best Canada VPN services are hard to find and to help you with the painful process of finding them; we have already recommended you some of the top services that are going to help you with keeping your data to yourself only. In addition, these best Canada VPN services will ensure cutting-edge streaming experience to subscribers around the world.

Canadian VPNs Experience Low Traffic

In the world of VPNs, Canadian VPNs are the untapped resource. That is because VPN users are usually quick to pick VPN servers located either in the US or in the UK.

This approach tends to keep Canadian VPN servers free of user traffic and guarantees high quality VPN services for the few who log on to Canadian VPN servers.

Essentially, Canada is like Switzerland when it comes to the internet. The law and order situation is eerily stable. But when it comes to best Canada VPN, the above mentioned services offer hundreds of servers across prime regions of the world. Also, these Canada VPN services offer congestion-free servers and high-speed network connection at all times.

Canadian VPN Guarantees Cyber Security

Cyber-crime is on the rise, as is the cost of cyber-crime. The internet was supposed to be the perfect virtual world but it has evolved into a parallel universe in which there is very little that you can rely on.

After a tough day at work, nothing relaxes me like switching on my laptop at home with a steaming cup of herbal tea by my side. Then I surf the internet aimlessly, with my Canada VPN switched on and the comfort that comes from the knowledge of being completely secure, unblock-able and untraceable!

I feel a shiver run down my spine every time I come across a webpage requiring me to enter any sort of personal information. I review VPN technology, its influences and its influencers for a living. Part of my job is to keep a close eye on cyber-crime trends – and they haven’t been looking too good lately.

Safety Precautions

The cyber world may appear as peaceful for now, but it is in a continuous struggle against the evils of cyber-criminals. It is never too late to secure your online identity with the following practices.

Now we know that we can use the first two recommendations for good use, but there is no way we can possibly exercise the third recommendation for long. Asking for reasons? Well, the latest stats suggest that 86.8% of the Canadian population use the internet on their smartphones and laptops for various purposes.

Surf and Stream the Internet with Freedom

With rapidly developing technology and increasing dependency on internet-enabled mobile devices like smartphones, tablets and slates, you can’t expect Canada’s internet using community to resist the temptation of free Wi-Fi. And they don’t have to! Here are my three tips to improve security on your mobile device WITHOUT compromising on accessibility:

Netflix Canada v/s Netflix US

Believe me, there is a huge gulf between Netflix Canada and Netflix US. The Netflix US beats Netflix Canada hands down when it comes to the quality, quantity and the prices. The stats further suggest the domination of Netflix US over Netflix Canada.

The library of Netflix US comprises of more than 10,000 TV shows and movies while Netflix Canada has only 4,000 TV shows and movies. That does not only make one question the quantity of TV shows and movies he gets, but it also makes him question the prices he pays for the services.

However, as it has always been the case, the numbers do look tempting but they do not provide enough evidence to suggest that Netflix Canada is anything less than Netflix US. Yes, the viewers may miss out on a couple of TV shows and movies in Canada, but what they get in return is also hardly available on Netflix US.
