5 Best VPNs in Malaysia

If you are in Malaysia, you might want to access services where a Malaysian IP does not work. For example, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, things like this only work with local IPs. So what’s the solution? Well, VPNs can help you appear to be in a different place, and you can use these services. But, with over 100 different companies offering VPN services, which should you choose?

So, we’ve decided to write an article about the top VPNs that work in Malaysia, to make sure you can access all these services. While there are over 100 VPN services out there, it’s a good idea to compare them in details, since the level of service does vary a lot. From the type of protocol used (PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN), to pricing and bandwidth limitations, there’s a lot of stuff to consider.Take a look at our summary below, after which we’ll review the services in a bit more detail too:

VyprVPN

4,9/5

  • PROS
  • Fast
  • 160-bit and 256-bit OpenVPN encryption (Pro only)
  • Android app
  • iOS app
  • 7 day money back guarantee
  • Up to 3 simultaneous connections
  • No usage logs
  • CONS
  • Not much
  • Price on high end

Run by global internet consortium Golden Frog, VyprVPN is a great choice for users in Malaysia, especially as it runs its own data centers, which is not something any other VPN boasts, and therefore has excellent speeds. It keeps no usage logs (although it does keep some connection logs), and allows P2P downloading. Encryption is rock-solid at 160-bit to 256-bit OpenVPN, and the fact that you can connect up to 2 devices at once (or 3 for the premier package) is really good. Note that these comments only refer to the slightly pricey (our only real criticism) Pro plan, and that the PPTP only basic version should be avoided.

StrongVPN

4,9/5

StrongVPN

  • PROS
  • No speed restrictions
  • Over 300 servers
  • Excellent tutorials
  • CONS
  • No privacy policy

It’s crazy, but StrongVPN have been in the server and VPN business for 17 years. They are based in San Francisco, so quite close to the center of the internet world, Silicon Valley. Since they are in the US, there are no logging laws so they don’t log anything. When testing them we found a wide range of IP addresses and servers.

Prices start from $7 per month, so a bit more than HMA, and they also have a 7 day moneyback guarantee.

ibVPN

4,9/5

StrongVPN

  • PROS
  • Very Cheap
  • Dedicated torrent service
  • Very Cheap
  • CONS
  • Live support sometimes offline
  • Design

ibVPN don’t have software as such, and their website looks pretty terrible, but when we tested the actual service and it was excellent. Their speeds are great.

Judging by prices, they have the lowest prices of any quality service that we’ve seen. They also have a torrent service, which is a unique service.

4th place

PIA

4,9/5

logo

  • PROS
  • No logs
  • Shared IPs
  • Accept Bitcoin
  • Encourages anonymous email
  • VPN kill switch
  • DNS leak protection
  • US based so no data retention laws
  • CONS
  • No free trial or money back guarantee period

If you want absolute privacy, go with PIA. They don’t mind if you use anonymous email addresses, you can accept payment via bitcoins, and they promise no logging. They are in the US so there are no laws requiring logging.

Their software has some excellent features, like an automatic internet kill switch if the VPN goes down, and also DNS leak prevention.

5th place

PureVPN

4,9/5

PureVPN

  • PROS
  • No speed restrictions
  • Over 300 servers
  • Excellent tutorials
  • CONS
  • No privacy policy

PureVPN is based in Hong Kong, and they’ve steadily built their business over the last few years. They have excellent software which we really liked. But they are quite expensive, the packages start from $6.50 per month, but for unlimited bandwidth you are looking at $18 per month. And on that price you only have a 3 day money back guarantee, so 1/10th of what HideMyAss offers.

They do have excellent customer service, which is 24/7. However, they don’t have a privacy policy which is very strange. Maybe they are snooping for the Chinese government? Who knows…

Conclusion

HideMyAss and StrongVPN are both very strong with loads of Ip addresses and great software. They are the high quality services for a slightly higher price. For cheaper options go with PIA or ibVPN, these are the cheap ones that still offer quality however. So you have two options for quality and two for cheap 🙂

  1. Hi Peter,

    In your article, you put vyprvpn as number 1, but in your conclusion, you recommended PIA…so which 1 is the best?

    Currently, which VPN is best in Malaysia?

    1. Hi Jacky,

      This post is rather old. Personally, I would now recommend BolehVPN for Malaysia users (ironSocket is also good.)

  2. Hi am new bout this program software and dont know nothing about it..so how can this..use at my laptop download unlimited and fast speed..transfer rate 1mbps to 3mbps..?

    1. Hi md shahrul,

      The speed on your VPN connection depends on the speed of your normal internet connection. Depending on a whole range of factors (such as how good the VPN servers are, how many people are using them, and how far away you are both from the servers and content you are downloading), VPN will slow your connection down by at least 10 percent, and possibly a lot more. I the flipsoide, you get a high degree of privacy on the internet, can evade censorship, and bypass geo-blocks…

  3. Interesting that you don’t mention Malaysian BolehVPN but do include, for example, U.S.-based PrivateInternetAccess. I tried BolehVPN but signed up with PIA for its higher speed. However, I do use a BolehVPN-provided seedbox, which has been trouble-free. Their support, while not 24/7, has been friendly, competent and quite fast by way of email, and I like that they’re unlogged and across the Pacific from my location in the U.S.

    Good article, overall. Thanks.

    1. Hi TJ

      This post is fairly old (as you can see from the date), we do actually recommend BolehVPN quiet often these days.

      Peter
