MyBestVPN Review

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

MyBestVPN is an absolutely free privacy service that was launched couple of years back (2013). Unlike some VPN service providers that offer a limited time/feature free service to attract new subscribers, MyBestVPN does not have any paid subscription options. This MyBestVPN review will focus on the features provided by the service.

Server Locations & Site Access – MyBestVPN has got VPN servers at two locations – United States and United Kingdom. Users interested in accessing American or British streaming content can easily switch to a US or UK based IP through the service and circumvent the GEO-IP blocks used by the On-Demand service providers. Once you have changed your IP address with the service, you would be able to unlock services like Netflix, FOX, BBC iPlayer, Pandora, USA Network, Demand 5, Vevo, NBC, MTV, Sky Go, Lovefilm, Xfinity, Eurosport, HBO Go, MLB, Amazon Prime, CWTV, CBS, Vudu, 4OD, UK TV, ABC Player, NHL and iTV Player from any part of the world.

It is also possible to use the service as an anti-censorship solution since it makes it easy to bypass restrictions and firewalls at schools, workplaces and countries which are famous for their internet censorship (China, Bahrain, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Brazil etc.). Once you are connected to the service, you should have no problem in unlocking sites like Gmail, Skype, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube even from behind the most stringent firewalls.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – Although MyBestVPN is a free service, it comes with unlimited usage options. The provider claims to have best in the class infrastructure which makes the service suitable for activities like streaming, downloading, FTP, VOIP and gaming.

Privacy Settings – MyBestVPN offers a PPTP based VPN service. As you might be aware, PPTP is one of the oldest VPN protocols in existence which provides 128 bit encryption and is also compatible with most operating systems and devices. However, the protocol also contains several security vulnerabilities and is far easier to block than other VPN protocols. The service makes it possible to access the internet in a safe and secure manner from public Wi-Fi hotspots, protects personal data and anonymity on the web plus it also shields online sessions from all kinds of surveillance and snooping.

MyBestVPN has not published any privacy policy on its site. Since the service is totally free, it should be assumed that the provider records connection details (including IP addresses) and it would not hesitate to hand them over to the authorities in case it is asked to do so.

Supported Operating Systems – MyBestVPN works on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8), Linux, Mac OS X, iPhones, iPod Touch, iPads as well as Android based Smartphones and tablets. Since there is no custom client available, the service needs to be configured via the PPTP client which is built within the operating systems. The provider promises a totally safe VPN experience with no malware or hidden backdoors.

Customer Support – Like many free service providers, MyBestVPN does not provide any kind of customer support to its users. If you are not able to use the service for some reason, you would need to refer to other sources for troubleshooting the problem.

Pricing Options – MyBestVPN does not charge anything for its service. There are no hidden costs involved and you can start using the service without having to provide any kind of personal details (including your email address).

Final Verdict – MyBestVPN is a no-frills anonymity service which can be used to access location restricted content and anonymize online sessions. While the service lacks the bells and whistles of a full-fledged VPN service, it should be sufficient for those who are looking for a cheap solution to protect their privacy on the web.
