in-Disguise is a Belize based VPN service provider that has been around for almost 5 years. The provider has a presence in many different parts of the world plus it also offers a range of VPN subscription plans. In this extremely detailed review, we will check out the pros and cons of the privacy service so that you can make an informed subscription decision.

Server Locations & Site Access – in-Disguise has deployed 25 VPN servers in 22 different countries. The provider offers anonymity through servers located at United States, Canada, Netherlands, Luxembourg, United Kingdom, Romania, Lithuania, Malaysia, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, South Africa, Sweden, Iceland, Germany, Spain, Panama, Hong Kong, Egypt, India and Vietnam.

The well-distributed server network of the company makes it easy to unlock GEO-IP block, premium streaming services like BBC iPlayer, Pandora, Amazon Instant Videos, Netflix, ABC Player, Zattoo, Arte, MyTV, WimpMusic, Xfinity, CBC, HBO Now, iTV Player, USA Network, Spotify, RTL, NRK, The Comedy Network, Voddler, Much Music, Demand 5, Hulu, ABC iView, TVB, Lovefilm, HBO Go, Rara, CTV, Deezer, Spacecast, Sky Go, MTV, Bravo, NBC, City TV, FOX, Global TV, TNT, CBS, NHL, Vudu, Eurosport, Vevo, CWTV, 4OD, MLB and Wilmaa from any corner of the planet. What’s more, the service can be used as a tool to bypass censorship and access frequently blocked sites like Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, YouTube, Skype and Viber from inside China, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Brazil or Thailand as well as from behind a restrictive firewall (for example, university and workplace firewalls). The provider even offers unlimited number of server switches to all members so you can unlock location blocked content from dozens of countries with just one subscription.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – in-Disguise delivers unrestricted speed and bandwidth to its subscribers. The servers used by the company are connected to 100-1000 MBit/s uplinks which means you get really good speeds for your streaming, downloading, VOIP and gaming sessions. The provider even uses load balancing technology to deliver near 100% network uptime. And for those who love to share and download content via torrents, the company supports P2P sessions via servers located in Egypt, Sweden, Romania, Vietnam, Norway and Hong Kong.

Privacy Settings – in-Disguise offers unmatched security and privacy via OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP/IPSec protocols. For even more privacy, customers also have the option of using DoubleVPN where online sessions get encrypted twice through servers located in two different countries. The service not only protects your important data (credit card numbers, social accounts, passwords) from hackers when you are connected to a public Wi-Fi network, it also secures all kinds of online sessions (browsing, FTP, VOIP, messaging, emailing) from state sponsored and institutional surveillance and snooping.

in-Disguise doesn’t keep a lot of subscribers’ online activities. In addition, the company doesn’t sell or rent your private information to marketing companies or third parties.

Supported Operating Systems – in-Disguise is available only for desktop Operating systems such as Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. The company offers a GUI based client for all three OS’ but it is also possible to setup the service manually. The company has published detailed configuration instructions on its website so even a tech-challenged user should be able to get the service up and running within few minutes. While the company uses shared/dynamic IPs to hide your identity, it is also possible to order dedicated IPs.

Customer Support – in-Disguise offers 24X7 support via live chat, email, ICQ, Jabber and Skype.

Pricing Options – in-Disguise offers several different subscription plans for the convenience of its users. The service costs €0.5 for a day, €3 for 1 week, €9 for a month, €20 for 3 months, €35 for 6 months and €55 for 1 year. Since there are no free trials available, you cannot test the service without paying upfront. However, there is a 7 day money back guarantee available to all new customers so you can test the service with total confidence. The provider has a referral plan that allows customers to earn free subscription credits by referring the service to their friends.

Final Verdict – in-Disguise manages to deliver on most parameters. While the lack of support for mobile devices is indeed a serious drawback, the availability of IPs from several different locations and the DoubleVPN feature is a big plus. I recommend that you test drive the service by subscribing to the 1 day plan first and then extend your subscription if you are happy with the service.
