AzireVPN Review – Get American and Swedish IPs With The Service

Monday, November 9th, 2015

AzireVPN is a Swedish VPN service provider. Founded in 2012, the service promises to keep your online sessions totally hidden and secure. In this elaborate AzireVPN review, we will check out whether these claims are true and establish whether or not it is worth subscribing to the service.

Server Locations & Site Access – AzireVPN offers a rather limited choice of server locations. The provider has got servers in just 3 countries which includes United States, Sweden and Mauritius. While the service cannot be used to unlock IP restricted On-Demand services from UK, Canada and most of the Europe, it would definitely help you to bypass state sponsored surveillance (especially while visiting China, Middle East and Latin America) and access premium streaming services which are available only in America and Sweden. Here is a small list of sites that can be unlocked with the service:

Facebook, Netflix, YouTube, HBO Now, Eurosport, Pandora, NBC, Xfinity, FOX, Amazon Instant videos, Skype, Spotify, ABC Player, Gmail, AMC, CWTV, CMore, Voddler, Twitter, WimpMusic, Rara, Hulu, SVTPlay, Viber, USA Network, NHL, MTV, HBO Go, Vevo, MLB, Vudu and CBS.

There is no restriction on server switching so you are free to choose American, Swedish and Mauritian IPs as per your needs.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – AzireVPN guarantees fast network speeds and unlimited bandwidth to all subscribers. The provider doesn’t shape traffic in any way so the service is ideal for resource dependent activities like streaming HD content, multiplayer gaming, VOIP and downloading of GB sized files. The company even allows bittorrenting activities from its Swedish servers to keep P2P lovers happy.

Privacy Settings – AzireVPN secures users sessions via PPTP and OpenVPN protocols and up to AES-256 encryption (with TLS authentication for maximum security). The service protects unsecured Wi-Fi sessions at public places (airports, malls, hotels and libraries), thwarts the attempts of intelligence agencies to monitor online sessions as well as keeps your sensitive details (for example, bank userid/password, social networking login details, social security number etc.) away from the reach of online criminals. Also, since the service shields every type of online activity, including emailing, messaging, FTP, VOIP and browsing; it can be used to achieve 100% privacy on the web.

AzireVPN keeps no logs whatsoever which means the company can’t hand over your personal details to anyone even if ordered by a court or a law enforcement agency.

Supported Operating Systems – AzireVPN is compatible with most devices and systems. Everything from Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS and Android is supported so you would be able to use the service from any mobile devices or computer. The company provides configuration files for all servers but since there is not custom installer available, you need to set up the service manually by referring to the instructions available on the provider’s official site. On the positive side, the service supports IPv4 + IPv6 and OpenVPN on iOS (but not on Android). The company even offers a webproxy solution for customers who just need to change their IPs for streaming On-Demand shows.

Customer Support – AzireVPN delivers customer support via email and IRC. The support in not round-the-clock (the support staff answers queries from 08:00 – 21:00 UTC) so you may not get immediate reply to your queries.

Pricing Options – AzireVPN costs €5 for one month, €13 for a quarter €45 for a year. There is a 7 day free trial available for new customers but the company doesn’t offer refunds.

Final Verdict – AzireVPN manages to impress on privacy and speed/bandwidth parameters. On the downside, the company doesn’t have servers at many locations plus it doesn’t provide 24X7 support. Since there is a 7 day free trial available, I urge you to test drive the service yourself and see whether it meets your privacy and security needs.
