IPVanish Revue

notre résumé

IPVanish a été performant de façon consistante dans nos tests, et cette fois-ci ne fait pas exception. Il est inutile de présenter à nouveau le réseau de première qualité et les débits fabuleux, même s’ils le méritent amplement. De nouvelles fonctionnalités de l’application valent également la peine d’être signalées, étant donné qu’elles améliorent encore un peu plus un service déjà de qualité. Essayez donc IPVanish en cliquant sur le lien ci-dessous.

Évaluation vidéo d’IPVanish

Nous avions monté une courte vidéo illustrant le service, mais certaines choses ont changé depuis. Nous vous recommandons donc de lire le reste de ce dossier en plus de jeter un coup d’œil à ce test vidéo d’IPVanish.

Fonctionnalités

IPVanish Features

Le P2P est cordialement autorisé lors de l’utilisation du logiciel IPVanish. En prime, IPVanish ne garde aucun log de connexion ou de métadonnées, pour ceux qui sont soucieux de rester aussi anonymes que possible. De surcroît, depuis le 23 août 2016, vous pouvez connecter simultanément jusqu’à cinq appareils au VPN à tout moment, vous garantissant la sécurité de la plupart de vos appareils (sinon tous). Une hausse sympathique par rapport aux chiffres mentionnés dans nos précédents tests d’IPVanish VPN !

IPVanish propose plus de 500 serveurs VPN dans plus de 60 pays, permettant une véritable couverture mondiale. Avec un réseau haut débit de première qualité et des clients pour presque toutes les plateformes, c’est peut-être le moment d’essayer IPVanish et sa garantie de remboursement d’une semaine.

Sécurité et confidentialité

IPVanish VPN fournit tous les protocoles principaux, même s’il est préférable de toujours s’en tenir à OpenVPN, vu qu’il est souvent le plus rapide et incontestablement le plus sécurisé. OpenVPN utilise le chiffrement AES 256 bits, avec le SHA-256 pour l’authentification et le RSA 2048 pour l’établissement de la liaison. Ajoutez à cette sécurité la politique d’absence de log et de partage d’IP mentionnée plus haut, et vous avez là un service solide sur lequel vous pouvez compter.

Ceci dit, IPVanish est basé aux États-Unis (enregistré par Mudhook Marketing) et malgré le peu ou l’absence de preuve du contraire depuis plusieurs années, aucun VPN ne vous rendra entièrement anonyme. Vous, en tant qu’utilisateur, êtes simultanément sur la première et la dernière ligne de défense, qui sont les plus importantes, tout en faisant confiance à ce fournisseur de VPN – certes solide – pour qu’il fasse le reste.

Le site web

Le site d’IPVanish n’a pas beaucoup changé depuis nos précédents tests d’IPVanish VPN, s’en tenant à ce qu’il sait bien faire, à savoir fournir des informations accessibles et pertinentes sans les cacher derrière trop de clics ennuyeux qui déroutent les visiteurs.

IPVanish Homepage

Le blog a été une autre agréable surprise, écartant la publicité inutile en faveur d’analyses éclairées, de billets d’invités et d’informations pour les clients strictement liées aux actualités du service.

IPVanish Blog

Le tableau de bord est tout aussi logique dans la pratique, avec des liens vers le compte, la facturation et l’abonnement bien visibles, et une infographie utile montrant l’état des serveurs en temps réel pour permettre un équilibre optimal entre les utilisateurs.

IPVanish Control Panel

Assistance

Une assistance est disponible 24h/24 et 7j/7, mais uniquement sous forme de ticket. Le chat en direct semble avoir été complètement supprimé depuis notre dernier test, et l’on ne comprend pas bien pourquoi. Le chat en direct était mentionné comme point fort auparavant, et c’est vraiment quelque chose dont de nombreux utilisateurs ne peuvent pas ou ne veulent pas se passer.

IPVanish Support Form

Malgré ceci, la section d’aide est plutôt instructive, et les guides d’installation sont nombreux et bien illustrés. Un forum permet également aux utilisateurs de s’entraider, ainsi que d’échanger des idées si vous en avez envie.

Processus

Inscription

L’inscription requiert votre adresse e-mail, votre mot de passe et vos données de facturation (sauf si vous réglez en Bitcoin pour mieux préserver votre anonymat). Après cela, suivez simplement les instructions que vous recevez, ou rendez-vous dans la section des téléchargements pour trouver votre application.

Client Windows d’IPVanish

IPVanish Windows Client

Le client IPVanish pour Windows n’a pas vraiment changé à première vue – non pas qu’il en ait besoin – mais certains petits ajustements le rendent beaucoup plus impressionnant. Des fioritures courantes tells que l’autoconnexion sont présentes, ainsi qu’un bouton dédié à la protection anti-fuite IPv6, au cas où vous en ayez besoin. On y trouve également une fonction d’arrêt d’urgence – récemment mise en œuvre – qui a parfaitement fonctionné durant nos essais. Si vous êtes déconnecté d’IPVanish VPN pour une raison quelconque, l’arrêt d’urgence vous garantit que vous ne serez pas à découvert. Il y a également un bouton pour la protection anti-fuite de DNS, et pour couronner le tout, un brouilleur d’adresse IP pour contourner les DPI tels que celui mis en place par le GFW.

IPVanish Windows Client Settings

On trouve aussi une toute nouvelle fonction de renouvellement d’IP qui n’apparaissait pas dans nos tests précédents d’IPVanish VPN, et qui renouvelle votre adresse IP toutes les 45 minutes au minimum. Cela sert non seulement à apporter un peu de fraîcheur mais aussi à rendre le pistage plus difficile (même si cela ne découragera pas vraiment les acteurs de niveau étatique). La fonction d’arrêt d’urgence s’est déclenchée au moment précis où mon adresse IP a changé, à la seconde près. Cela a été agréable de voir le client IPVanish pour Windows fonctionner tel qu’annoncé, alors 10/10 à l’équipe de conception sur ce point.

IPVanish IP Cycle

Performances (Tests de vitesse, DNS, WebRTC et IPv6)

Les débits ont été excellents via quasiment tous les serveurs. Ensuite, les chiffres ont semblé confirmer mon expérience antérieure. Les débits descendants ont été en moyenne dans les 10 Mbps via les serveurs anglais et hollandais, avec une baisse de seulement quelques Mbps par rapport à la connexion sans VPN. Les débits via les États-Unis ont été en moyenne d’un peu moins de 10 Mbps, mais c’est compréhensible vu la plus grande distance géographique. Dans tous les cas, la navigation et le streaming n’ont été que peu ou pas affectés par l’utilisation d’IPVanish VPN, mis à part quand l’arrêt d’urgence m’a pris par surprise lors des renouvellements d’IP.

Les graphiques montrent le débit le plus élevé, le plus bas et la moyenne pour chaque serveur et lieu. Consultez notre explication complète des tests de débit pour plus de détails.

Il n’y a aucune fuite de DNS à signaler, mais c’est une bonne idée de tester périodiquement pour s’assurer que tout fonctionne comme il faut. Vous pouvez utiliser ipleak.net pour vérifier les fuites de DNS et le bug WebRTC, et test-ipv6.com en ce qui concerne les fuites IPv6. Il y a aussi doileak.net, qui combine des éléments des deux autres tests pour des essais complémentaires.

Autres plateformes

IPVanish Platforms

IPVanish dispose d’applications et d’installateurs dédiés pour Android, OSX et iOS, mais les quatre dernières plateformes indiquées ci-dessus vous obligent à installer manuellement. Heureusement, il y a des guides d’installation bien détaillés et illustrés et des tutoriels vidéo que vous pouvez consulter pour tout mettre en place sans difficulté.

Android

IPVanish Android App

L’application sur mesure pour Android a bien soutenu la comparaison vis à vis de son équivalent pour ordinateur en ce qui concerne les débits dans un usage simple. De plus, l’application dédiée IPVanish pour Android réussit également à reprendre le même look (ce qui n’est pas rien) et à inclure toutes les mêmes fonctionnalités que la version pour ordinateur, notamment la mesure de brouillage anti DPI, l’arrêt d’urgence, et les tests de débit comme montré plus haut. Cela fait toujours plaisir de voir le même niveau d’attention apporté aux applications mobiles, étant donné que pour de plus en plus de gens, la majorité du temps passé en ligne s’est déportée des ordinateurs de bureau et portables vers les smartphones et les tablettes.

  1. Many of these services will perform ok in a test environment. For long-term use many will fail like IPVanish. I experienced frequent drops during the most critical time when you need protection and to keep your PC cloaked for protection. A lot of fluff from these guys but the service is truly subpar.

    4 Years a client. Never had any major issues. Recently took advantage of a sweet lifetime offer. At the price I was offered, I couldn’t turn it down. Highly recommend. This is the perfect solution for basic VPN requirements. Can’t recommend this company enough.

    1. Hi mark,

      iPlayer availability is an ever-changing situation, which makes it hard to keep up with all the time for all VPNs. We are currently working, however, on developing a system to ensure we are always up-to-date (at least for the big-name VPN providers which includes IPVanish).

    IPVanish is terrible. Unfortunately, it is absolutely useless in any country you might really want it (China, Oman, UAE, etc.). Basically, any country with restrictions has blocked IPVanish, rendering it completely useless. I’ve been in touch with their support teams for months and no one has been able to come up with a solution. I asked for a refund but was told that was impossible. This is literally the worst VPN I have tried so far. Not recommended in the slightest.

    I had a terrible experience with IPVanish. I canceled after 2 months because the service was too slow and I was unable to use it for the purpose I bought it. They stopped collecting payments and everything seemed fine. Two years later, a mysterious $10/month charge started appearing on my bank statement, from PayPal but with no label indicating it was IPVanish. It took several calls to PayPal to finally figure out I was being charged by IPVanish. It took me a long time to notice this wasn’t one of my legitimate subscriptions and I ended up being overcharged $240. I didn’t use the service at all during that time. They refused to refund any of the money. I am now taking them to small claims court. BUYER BEWARE.

  2. IPvanish the only thing that vanishes is your internet connection, the worse internet service ever. I pay the entire year. please don´t use it.

  3. I had bought IPvanish because I had read that my netgear router was supported …. which after signing up and going to the support page my model was not so I asked for a refund that night …and within 24 hours all my payment was returned to paypal … they are honest

  4. Hello,
    I use IPV for nearly 1 year and can only affirm that I also had my load of misery with their low quality to non existant customer service…

    Ex: having a series of connection and PW issues I explained and asked a few questions.
    1. a certain person A. would answer and asking in a concerned way for more details!
    So greatfull to be heard and taken seriously I gave my best to answer all the required details..
    2. The response came 2-3 days later but written by a new and concerned person B. who would ask me to be more precise and asking me the same questions again which I had just painstakingly responded….
    – So I did answer them all again
    3. So that 2, 3 days later an answer came written by a concerned but again different person C. asking me … Yeah!!

    Right you guess it The Same again .. A NutsHouse!

    On another occasion one of my IPV app wasn’t running for a week, but I patiently took care to document with details and screenshots that issue (being used to it..)

    And someone actualy polite and concerned… 😯 …
    answered to my request with an exact 1to1 copy of my just send mail..
    Adding something like :”I hope we could help you, please don’t hesitate to contact us for any further support.

    I then wrote them back
    asking:
    Thank you IPVanish…but can it be that I contacted by mistake IPV Kindergarten department!!!?”
    And
    “Is Anybody Home.. Helloo!!”

    I never got an answer of cause and gave it up.

    If it weren’t such an important subject it would be actually funny!

    For a while I really had the feeling their customer service was either non existent or run by a bunch of disoriented people.

    After a while I guess one simply give up asking any questions… Which I did.

    As one reviewer wrote correctly its better to learn and find the answers oneself !
    For which reason I appreciate now “bestvpn” every time a bit more.

    IPV. CORRECTION/UPDATES
    – About the IPV presentation above , there are some changes or errors I noticed with their Android App.

    I use 2 times IPV. Android App
    1 on my mobile and
    1 on my AFTV + with Kodi.

    Contrary to what they wrote above about Android functions being identical to Windows..

    The Android app.doesnt:
    – enable killswitch*
    – enable DNS leak prevention
    – enable IPV6 leak prevention,

    May be there was !,..but not anymore on Android Apps.

    Unfortunately,*
    as it happens relatively often that my VPN connection stopped with my mobile and I often noticed it too late
    :-/ pretty bad that !

    I also noticed that sometimes Server location databases show different places then the city but it doesnt appear to be of any concern.

    It’s not all negative thought
    as speed has always be pretty Good for Kodi streaming.

    And they have a strong discretion politics, Bc, both O logs policy which I trust.

    We’ll it seem to me that everything is possible with IPV
    … The Best and the Worth ..

    But lets face it ..for a pretty low yearly rate,
    , IPVanish,
    All in All finally does the job!

    1. Thanks, obviously these articles get updated periodically so things change between each version, We appreciate the feedback.

  5. how can I speak to some one live or try to understand how this can help my privacy on my smart phone ,and before I start a new computer ? I need a respond a soon as possible thx

    1. Hi teddy,

      Are you talking about websites that try to block VPN users (such as Netflix), or something else?

  6. I use IPvanish as a service for the last 18 months or so. However when connecting to the UK servers I see that are hosted by M247 Ltd.

    This raises concerns regarding the new UK law and data logging. How does IPVANISH get around this given that the servers are located in the U.K. and not owned by themselves but by M247 Ltd?

    Do you have any insight into this at all please?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Matt,

      Please see my article on 5 Best No Logs VPNs for a discussion on the dangers posed by third-party server centers. TL:DR – server location or whether it is run by a third party provider matters less than where the VPN company is based, as long as bare-metal servers with full-disk encryption and shared IPs are used (which I assume is the case with IPVanish). That said, unless you need to use a UK server for watching iPlayer or similar, I think it safest to avoid… just in case.

    Good price
    Excellent quality
    So far I have had no problems

    • Not Rated

    How is it supposed to be super fast when I choose a server near me. Speeds from 180mbps to 18mbps? My 4gLte is faster than this. Don’t think 90% speed decrease is worth it.

    1. Hi AnonO,

      Most VPNs (including IPVansh) use shared IPs. In fact, this is the most basic way in which a VPN provides privacy for its users. When using shared IPs, your speeds will average out with every other person sharing the same IP address. A 180 Mbps is very fast, so you will not get anywhere near full speeds when running a VPN. That said, 18 Mbps seems very low. As you can see above, Ray got around 40 Mbps download speeds on his 50 Mbps connection.

    2. I use IPVanish with a 50Mb connection and I can reach speeds of 45Mb. Is an excellent VPN, they are to be congratulated! (Sorry for my English – Google Translate!)

    I used IP Vanish for most of 2016, and it is a very good VPN. I liked it much more than ExpressVPN. The Windows & iOS app, and my OS X is great. I used it on all 3 devces.

    It is US based but it is fast. You can pick fast servers, and you can connect to anything. NETFLIX is known to not be able to allow any VPN, so that’s no surprise there, you cannot use TunnelBear, ExpressVPN, NORD or anything with Netflix in the USA, so not being able to use IPVanish either is really no big deal. Just disconnect and watch Netflix. It’s secure so it shouldn’t matter. Watching Kodi on the other hand, allows VPNs perfectly fine…

    Someone also mentioned getting your money back if you decide not to use their service, this is also inaccurate. In Jan 2017 I auto-bought a year, but since I changed VPN I needed to get a refund, I was refunded the difference of the time frame I did not use within 3 business days. They are very willing and helpful with refunds.

    I have had zero issues with IPVanish, their support is responsive and decent, not awesome but it’s better than no chat-box support. They will help you figure stuff out, they speak English because they are USA based (unlike ExpressVPN) and they have good connections. I always felt secure using IPVanish.

  7. Hi I installed IPvanish yesterday, had a little trouble with the unsigned TAP drivers on Windows 10 not being digitally signed, up and running within 20 minutes, seems pretty good so far.

  8. IPVanish is okay and reliable service compared to some others, sometimes is a slow support however some things you need to try resolve yourself, they have thousands of clients sometimes u have to wait to get the answer. I see people complain on software, i never had any problems with it. Also that you cant get refunds, well this is a joke. Simply call your bank you will get money whatever the reason, do chargeback on paypal same thing! This is serious and big company you think they will steal someone mine or yours $70-$80 or $10-$20.
    If you come to this site and read review from professionals that service is good then go try it! dont rely and read comments too much.. you should all understand that many comments are fake or posted by competition both negative and positive. Sometimes people heard about VPN working for netflix, but dont even know to install VPN, or will encounter some other problem which they can simply resolve if try.. but no, then they will complain how company software is bad..etc

  9. Holy God, IPVanish is a nightmare!
    After repeated complete uninstalls and clean reinstalls, it continues to kick itself out of service, and simply will not complete a reinstall at this point on my Mac/El Capitan.
    I’ve received the same support message 4 times asking for screen shots of my manual installation settings. Every time I supply it, I get the same request for it from another support tech, a few days later; albeit it took 3 days to get a response more than once.
    A service which advertises 24/7 support, which doesn’t provide it, is a fraud. A service which advertises support, but blows customers off with a pretense of support, is a fraud. IPVanish is a fraud, period!

  10. This service works great for me and as far as billing issues? First off I protect myself by using throw away cards like a pre loaded card from say WalMart. Seriously why would anyone with any common sense use a personal credit or debit card. Go get a throw away card, load approximately $80-$100 on it as it only costs $3 to load it. Use that card then don’t reload it after the money is spent. Don’t complain about the $3 because if you can afford to throw $70+ per year on a VPN then you can afford it.

    1. Hi ProfZimm,

      Using “anonymous” payment methods does have some privacy advantages, but it is always worth remembering that your VPN is always know who you are via your IP address (unless using VPN over Tor).

      1. VPN over Tor is exactly what I use but I merely wanted to point out a simple way to keep charges from stacking up on personal bank accounts or credit cards. I’m still confused as to why people are bashing on a review site for services from a VPN. I’ve been using IP Vanish half way into my second year and haven’t had any issues to date though I realize others obviously have. I’ve also used a few others but for now I prefer my current VPN though that will change as it always does.

  11. After recent update, having trouble logging in: Program will not logon automatically and manual login gets hung up. Support was a joke, effectively non existent.
    I plan to move on to another service.

  12. Since the update, service has not worked. After 3 days waiting for support, all they have done is resend update link to me. Very poor and like of real attention, I am looking to cancel contract with them. Look for another provider as IPVANISH ARE NO GOOD.

    1. Fraud

      1:A Lot of e-mails to IpVanish about problems with their application
      2:They charged me twice for my account last year and refuses to pay back my money -Fraud !
      3: I cancelled my subscription last autumn and now they charged me AGAIN and refuses to pay my money back- Criminals !

      Where can I get their address ?

      1. How did you pay for it? If you used paypal, file a chargeback and you will get money back. They had a gliche in their system where they were double billing but if you contact they will refund you, at least that was my experience. Support got back to me within 24 hours and always fixed whatever problems I was having.

    I’m surprised you have IPVanish as a viable option for Netflix. I subscribed to IPVanish in 2016 mainly to access Netflix US content. It worked for a while then got blocked with the usual “you seem to be using an unblocker or proxy.”

    Tech support were aware of the issue and working on it. After 3 months it was still not resolved. I cancelled my subscription and was able to get a full refund. Maybe they finally figured it out…

    But like some mentioned, I also had few invoicing glitches that were all resolved by customer support. So one piece of general advice, watch your bills 🙂

    1. Hi Simon,

      We do our best to keep all our articles up to date, but given the ever-shifting nature of the Netflix landscape, this can be hard. We are going to take another look at out 5 Best Netflix VPN Providers, and make any changes as appropriate.

  13. I tried to sign up, never received the verification email, emailed them three times about it, never heard back, was charged TWICE for their yearly service, emailed them to cancel within time limit, never heard back, was still charged TWICE, and now I’m having to dispute the claim with my CC company. Awful. Still have never heard anything from them.

      1. I have used most major VPNs as I travel to China regularly. I had to file a dispute myself (I started with Ipvanish in 2014) and am less than impressed with ipvanish billing and support. I do think this is an important factor in a decision to use or renew a VPN and should be factored into reviews. For my purposes IPvanish was no longer doing what was needed effectively and I had a rough cancellation process. The other comments here about their billing do resonate with me and should be a factor in the reviews.

        1. Hi Mike,

          If our reviewers run into billing issues (which often crop up after a review is published), we do update the article to reflect that experience. We can only review what we ourselves experience, but this is why a comments section is so important. It allows readers to share their own first-hand experiences with other readers.

      2. How can you proclaim IPVanish “a legit company” after a ripoff experience like that? You think maybe the commenter is lying? I seriously doubt it — too many people having problems with this VPN.

        You couldn’t PAY ME to venture a dime on it.

        1. Hi Tin Frog,

          I do not doubt YuQiu’s experience. In fact, it is precisely in order to share such experiences that these comment sections exist! But I do know that it is unusual. I have persoanlly reviewed IPVanish many times over the years, and have never experienced any billing issues with the service. Our user stats also show that thousands of our readers sign-up to IPVanish all the time, and yet reports of this kind are rare. So what I am saying is that, sure, some users have obviously had a bad experience with the company, but company is not running a scam. It may cock things up occasionally, but it also has many thousands of happy customers.

    1. Hi Johnny,

      We hand moderate all comments due to the amount of spam we receive, and because we like to answer any questions. This is why your comment did not appear immediately. FWIW, IPVanish is not “our service” -we are a simply a review and comparison website. Thank you for being so polite.

  14. Created an account and one week later was still not able to access that account, this after numerous communications(3or4 times daily) with rude and inconsiderate replies from their support staff. I was given the spin when I needed support. Support staff is inferior and not accountable. I wouldn’t trust this organization to mow my grass. Try another option!

  15. Would like to check it out, as other services have failed but WebRoot anti-virus keeps blocking any IPVanish web page warning of malicious links or payload

    1. Hi Mike,

      WebRoot anti-virus is deferentially making an error here. IPVanish is a well-established and respectable company. I’m sure there must be some way way for you to whitelist the website using WebRoot.

  16. *Take Heed*
    I tried a 3 month discounted ‘trial’ with IPVanish and even after this ‘trial’ period was up they were still taking my money. I sent them numerous email’s explaining the situation. I was told that my account was deleted when in fact they still took my money!!!
    You have been warned.

  17. Was getting good service for around a year. Last 4-5 months has been terrible. Servers supposed to be in UK are in Netherlands or Belgium. Have contacted support and got excuses. Thinking of going elsewhere.

  18. These clowns actually sent me an email saying that it was “fishy” that my IP address didn’t match my credit card address and could I send them a gov’t issued photo ID. Yeah. Because intelligent people would do that??!??!?!?!? The word irony just doesn’t cover a company that d@mned stupid.

    1. Hi Charlie,

      Hmm. I will note that VPN companies are particularly vulnerable to credit card fraud, as there is no physical part of their service that is required for delivery to a real world address. It is also true that if you pay by credit card then IPVanish will know exactly who you are anyway. For greater anonymity, always pay using properly mixed Bitcoins (which IPVanish accepts). Do be aware, however, that your VPN provider will always know your true IP address (so you are never truly anonymous).

  19. Since this review in June / as of August – IPVanish has updated the max 2 concurrent devices to 5 devices … So far only a couple of days / this service rocks!

    Pricing is in line if not better than many – a solid service / give it a try for a month.

    Dave

    1. Hi Dave,

      Thanks for the heads-up. That’s great news! I have updated this review, but it may take a while for the info to filter through to all our 5 Best lists.

    I try IPvanish this year because offer some good extra as scramble, kill switch, and no data logs.

    I try ironsok… and I was very happy super fast multiple vpn 3 at time , good dns spoof .

    IPvanish so so the app on windows is not good and nice as the mac , had issue in speed more than one time and the support says is because is a VPN ( wait a minut but I pay for it premium… btw ) have a real big issue in dns or (location ) Example : used sweden now and it says Amsterdam …. used Singapor it says America …. this is bad for people that need a good location associated by VPN .
    Also many website or app find that I use a VPN !! gumtree.c o m example etc.. this not happen to me with other services…

    In general I am 50% satisfied still have one year will see if the services become better.

  20. Many reviews are either paid, biased or unknowingly post reviews without ever knowing or experiencing software, server speed or specifics unknown to them simply because they haven’t personally experienced any problems. I have had different problems associated with different VPN’s but you won’t read about them in most of the reviews that i have read. Its still a user be warned and “IF” these VPN service providers were so confident that they are the fastest, the best or provide a great service, “no hassle” money back guarantees would be posted without any of them using cloaked excuses not to. This crap about conditional refunds based on their service techs is a condition I don’t want, been there and most have tiered technical support in which you have a problem, the first to waste you time is their online support.
    Then comes the level 2 support and if all of that fails well, we can all go to level 3, 4 or wherever they direct you. Truth, if I wanted to be a beta tester for their VPN service, I’d apply for the job and get paid for the frustration instead of paying them.
    Hidemyass works but many of its servers are overloaded, speeds are slow to ridiculous especially in the hub ports like Seattle. PureVPN, I wouldn’t bother with as getting connected is a major exercise I could live without. PIA or private internet access is above average when it comes to speed but throughput on their servers could be far better considering some of the locations they have. NordVPN speeds are average and not as high as they should be but they are off the radar when it comes to the US Gov’t trying to get anything out of them so security is about as good as it gets with them.
    There are some VPN’s that are so pricey, I have declined to try or buy so they might be good, they might not be good or suitable for everyone but you won’t read anything about them if there is and it relates back to reviewers and their personal reviews based on whatever personal experience they’ve had. This nonsense about which VPN is best for Android, or Windows or IOS or Linux makes about as much sense as which bottled water is best to drink. Its still user beware and read the refund policies before you buy

    1. Hi intrepix,

      It is true that when it comes to claims made by many (but not all) VPN providers, Caveat Emptor. BestVPN exists in order to help readers through this minefeild, and we always review services hands-on. As for “This nonsense about which VPN is best for Android, or Windows or IOS or Linux” – in part these articles do exist because that’s what people search for in Google, but some providers do support say, Linux, but better than others (if they they do at all), and for example, and we add additional information to such articles that readers interested in the subject may find useful (such as how to setup OpenVPN on Android in our 5 Best VPNs for Android article.)

  21. I had the same problem as Bruce i.e. trying to register over a VPN.

    I sent a support ticket and within 20 mins they had sent me my login credentials and off we went!

    1. Hi anders,

      IPVanish is a US-based service, but the US has no mandatory data retention laws whatsoever. The NSA might tap its servers anyway, or a court could issue an NSL with accompanying gag order but this cannot simply be assumed.

  22. I want to use you 1 years pvn. I have a big set up . I heard from my one friend that your pvn work well than other PVA. If i get good result with your pvn then i need more than 10 pvn at a time and i hope it will gradually increase with me set up. I feel prefer you may contact at my skype: comet.it or you can text me your skype.

  23. Hi,
    Interesting review, IPVanish does seem to be quite good.
    However I’m a bit worried about speed: I see you only tested speed from a 10/10-ish Mbps connection. My connection is 100/50 Mbps and I wonder if the VPN will put a horribly low limit on that. Actually, it seems that UK and US East servers already limited your speed to some extent. Did you do any tests from a faster connection?

    1. Hi John,

      Our reviewer used the connection that he had, so I’m afraid not. IPVanish does, however, offer a 7-day money-back guarantee (which I believe it honors). So the best course might to do a trial run and test the service out for yourself.

  24. I have been using IPVanish for just over one year. For me, it’s been the best VPN service I’ve used for its easy setup, features, speed, number of servers and price. (I’ve tried various other ones over the years, some more expensive until I came across IPVanish – works a treat!)
    As for support, I only had one minor “issue” and the response was fast, courteous and resolved very quickly.

  25. A bit of advice: If using IPVanish on a Mac, you’re better off using a 3rd-party app like Tunnelblick to manage the OpenVPN connections. In mine at least, the Mac IPVanish app was buggy as hell, and upon uninstalling, it kept the kill-switch active for all internet connections, killing connectivity.
    I was happy to delete and re-configure the different wired and wireless interfaces myself, but I can’t many people are happy to put up with this level of bother.
    The Windows app works well.

  26. WARNING! ipvanish will renew your credit card without notice, whether monthly or yearly and it will impossible to get a refund. DO NOT USE!

    1. Hi Jordan,

      Do you understand that we are a review website, and that we have nothing to do with this service? If you have a problem with IPVanish then please contact them about it, rather than leaving comments such as this on our review page.

  27. Painful process. Tried to log onto the site from the UAE. Site is blocked. Then had to use ANOTHER vpn to log onto their site. Tried to make a payment and PayPal doesnt work. So had to use my credit card. Guess what? Payment went through but they blocked my account because my physical location & IP address didnt match (due to my using the VPN). They sent an email asking for authentication with no timelines at all on when they will resolve the issue. Best part is you can’t even give up on the process and seek refund since you have already paid for a service you can’t access! Ipvanish might be a great VPN but if you are access it from a country which has internet restrictions, best you place your best on more reliable VPNs.

    1. Hi Bruce,

      Ouch! I have found in the past, however, that IPVanish does honor its 7-day money back guarantee (or at least it did for me).
