We tested GoTrusted in this area after connecting to their secured tunnel and confirmed that they offer a pretty decent speed. It is normal to experience slowdowns when using VPN and although with GoTrusted you don’t get the fastest service, you can still expect a good enough speed.
For only $6 USD per month, you can get unlimited VPN through any of their supported protocols. They offer a 7 day trial which is very helpful is you don’t want to take the risk or committing to a full subscription without trying out the service first. If you do get a subscription but don’t feel entirely satisfied, you can cancel at anytime without any extra fees or issues.
Client Setup and Usage
The company has a client compatible with the main desktop operating systems including Windows 7, XP, as well as Mac and Linux. They also work with iPad, iPhone and android tablets and mobile phones. The installation and configuration of the client is simple and fast. Once you have completed these steps, you will only be required to enter your login details before you can start surfing internet securely and anonymously.
In order to identify the best server for you, the client will monitor different characteristics of your connection. Thanks to this, you will be able to enjoy the best possible speed at any moment. You don’t need to worry about slowdowns caused by the memory footprint running as it is very small and won’t interfere with your PC.
There are some self-help materials also available on their site, including step-by-step tutorials, and a beginner’s guide.
Against the Competition
Price is one of the areas in which GoTrusted beats many of its competitors. However, there are other features that are not as impressive as HideMyAss, one of the leading providers. For instance, GoTrusted only offers 5 server locations compared to 53 from HMA and they don’t offer scheduled IP changing.
There were no issues and we didn’t come across any errors while using GoTrusted. For experienced VPN users, they may not offer too much in terms of configurability but they are a good and simple option for newbies.
GoTrusted is ideal for people that are on a budget and only need the basic features. On the other hand, if you are looking for a state of the art VPN service, you would do better spending a bit extra in a top provider with advanced tools.
