Monday, January 12th, 2015

VPNIP is a free VPN service that provides security and privacy on the web. The service was launched very recently (2013) and promises to deliver reliable and fast VPN connections to its users. In this VPNIP review, we are going to check whether these claims are true and advise whether or not you should use the service.

Server Locations & Site Access – VPNIP has gateways at two locations – New York and London. The availability of both American and British IPs ensures that expats, tourists and frequent fliers would be able unlock and enjoy streaming services like BBC iPlayer, Hulu, MLB, CWTV, Eurosport, CBS, MTV, UK TV, Lovefilm, Xfinity, FOX, NHL, HBO Go, Vevo, ABC, Demand 5, Netflix, Vudu, Amazon Prime, STV, Sky Go, TNT, USA Network, iTV, 4OD, Pandora and NBC irrespective of their current geographical location. The service can even help you to bypass corporate and regional firewalls and access Twitter, Facebook, Skype and YouTube from anywhere (even from Brazil, Middle East and China). And since there are no restrictions on switching servers, you can access local services and streaming content from both US and UK without running into GEO-IP blocks.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – Although it is a free VPN service, VPNIP is perfect for HD streaming, VOIP and fast browsing since the provider offers unlimited bandwidth along with a minimum speed of 5 MBPS. The service is delivered via multiple Tier-1 datacenters that are connected to 10 GBPS nodes to ensure maximum network capacity and redundancy. In addition, the service is 100% cloud based so it is able to dynamically allocate resources, prevent overloading and ensure high reliability and network capacity. The provider even guarantees 99.99% uptime so you can use the service for long streaming and gaming sessions without facing disconnections.

Privacy Settings – VPNIP secures user data and privacy with 128 bit encryption. The tunneling is achieved via the PPTP protocol which is highly popular due to its speed and compatibility features. The service prevents wireless network sniffers from stealing your data plus it provides foolproof protection against network and ISP surveillance.

VPNIP does not actively monitor user sessions but if someone abuses the service, the provider may share VPN logs with the authorities.

Supported Operating Systems – VPNIP works on several systems including Windows (2003, XP, Vista, 7, 2008, 8), Windows Mobile (6.5, CE 5, 7.5, 8), Mac OS X (Cheetah, Jaguar, Puma, , Tiger, Panther, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion), Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Redhat, CentOS), Android (2.3.x, 3.x, 4.x), iOS (3.x, 4.x, 5.x, 6.x) and routers (DD-WRT, D-Link, Linksys and ASUS). The service takes less than 5 minutes to set up and doesn’t require any software installation. The provider even offers an extra layer of security through a virtual firewall system so your device remains safe from malware and spyware threats.

Customer Support – Like most other free privacy service providers, VPNIP does not offer a dedicated support channel. If you run into connection or speed problem then you must refer to setup instructions (or FAQ section) to resolve the issue.

Pricing Options – As we mentioned in the first paragraph, VPNIP doesn’t charge anything for its privacy service. Users are free to use the service on as many devices as they want and even maintain multiple simultaneous connections without having to pay anything.

Final Verdict – VPNIP offers fast and reliable connections despite being a free service. If you are looking for a basic VPN service that protects your browsing sessions and unlocks websites without costing a lot of money then VPNIP would certainly be a good choice for you.
