Thursday, January 30th, 2014

SecurityKiss is an Irish company that offers security solutions for individuals and businesses. Established in 2010, the company provides both free and paid privacy solutions to keep its customer secure on the internet. In this exhaustive SecurityKiss Review, we will list down the features provided by the service as well as evaluate whether it is worth the subscription price.

Server Locations and Site Access

SecurtyKiss has a presence in North America and Europe. The company has VPN servers in 14 different countries including United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Sweden, Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Ukraine, Belgium and Poland. The wide choice of server locations makes it easy to unlock premium On-Demand streaming services such as Spotify, CTV, 4OD, Lovefilm, MLB, Zattoo, CBC, MTV, Hulu, Vudu, Rara, Fox, CBS, USA Network, Deezer, Demand 5, Xfinity, RTL, NBC, NHL, iTV, Vox, ABC, CWTV, Pandora, Canal+, Amazon Prime, Netflix, Sport1, Wilmaa, Eurosport, BBC iPlayer and HBO Go from all over the world. In addition, the service allows its subscribers to bypass all types of firewalls and censorship and access blocked websites like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Skype and YouTube from locations like China, UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. The company allows unlimited server switching so you can unlock IP restricted content from multiple countries with just one VPN subscription. However, it is worth noting that only paid customers can access servers from all 14 countries whereas the free subscribers are allowed to use only US, UK, French and German VPN servers.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

SecurtyKiss offers both metered and unmetered plans to its subscribers. The company has excellent infrastructure in place and all its servers are connected to 100MBit nodes. The speed is capped for free subscribers but paid customers get very high speeds that support fast streaming, downloading, VOIP and gaming activities. The company also uses data compression technology that allows you to experience faster speeds and even increase the bandwidth caps imposed by ISPs.

Privacy Settings

SecurtyKiss protects your online sessions through PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN protocols. The company’s OpenVPN solution delivers 128 bit encryption with 1024-bit RSA certificates which makes it perfect for securing credit card numbers, shopping activities and social media accounts. The service even keeps your personal data safe while you are connected to an unsecure wireless network at a mall, airport, coffee shop and public park. The certificate keys are regenerated every hour and the company even provides a unique installation file to every customer which helps to make the service more secure.

While the company does not spy on users’ online activities, it logs certain details like IP address, session date/time and bandwidth usage. The log files are used for troubleshooting and generating statistics and are purged after a gap of 10 days. The company would not reveal customer data to third parties but it will co-operate with law enforcement agencies provided the request is supported with proper paperwork.

Supported Operating Systems

SecurtyKiss’ VPN solution works with Windows (XP, 7, 8, Vista), Mac OS X, iPhones, iPads, Android, Symbian, Ubuntu and DD-WRT based routers. The company provides a custom tunneling program for Windows, a propriatary Tunnelbick solution for Mac and GuizmOVPN files for iPhones and iPads. The service even supports FeatVPN for Android which makes it possible to use the OpenVPN solution with older versions of Android (Gingerbread and older) without having root access. The service supports exclusive tunneling mode for total privacy as well as an Octopus tunneling mechanism that allows you to forward your traffic from one tunnel to another.

The company allows simultaneous connections for each user but not to the same server. While the service offers shared IPs to its customers, the company can set up dedicated IPs for its unlimited (Emerald) plan users upon request. The service does not require any kind of registration so it is possible to use it without parting with your information. The company has published detailed setup instructions for those customers who love to do things manually.

Customer Support

The company provides support (even to free customers) through email and a ticketing system. The company has also published detailed troubleshooting instructions on its website so you can even resolve common VPN problems on your own.

Pricing Options

SecurtyKiss offers several different subscription plans (Green, Olivine, Malachite, Jadeite and Emerald) to its customers. The Olivine plan includes 20 GB bandwidth/month and provides access to servers from 10 countries for 2.99 Euros per month (7.99 Euros for 3 months, 14.95 Euros for 6 months and 23.9 Euros for a year), the Malachite plan includes 30 GB bandwidth/month and gives access to servers from 11 countries for 3.99 Euros per month (10.99 Euros per quarter, 19.95 Euros for 6 months and 35.9 Euros for a year), the Jadeite plan provides 50 GB monthly bandwidth and access to all servers for 5.99 Euros per month (16.99 Euros for 3 months, 29.95 Euros for 6 months and 53.9 Euros for a year) whereas the Emerald plan provides unlimited bandwidth and access to all servers for 9.99 Euros per month (28.99 Euros for 3 months, 49.95 Euros for 6 months and 89.9 Euros for a year). The company offers a never expiring free trial through its Green plan but each free subscription is restricted to 300 MB bandwidth per day. Since the company accepts payment through bitcoins, it is possible to subscribe to the service without revealing your personal details. The service does not come with long term contracts and subscribers are free to cancel their subscription at any time. The company even provides refunds for partial cancellations so you can quit at any time without losing the entire subscription money.
