Based in Romania, Invisible Browsing VPN, or ibVPN for short, was launched in 2010 but the team that created it has been around since 2003. For very affordable and flexible packages and plans, ibVPN delivers more than its users are expecting which is the reason why it has received a global patronage for many years. Unlike most VPN services that only offer a general package plan for its users, ibVPN has customized its plans for the varying needs of its subscribers.

Security and Protocols. ibVPN uses the Blowfish algorithm with 256 bit keys, an extremely secure cipher that protects your outgoing data. Along with the 256 bit SSL and AES encryptions, ibVPN safeguards all the sensitive information that you input in your computer, such as your emails, bank account details, and social security number. This VPN service truly is one of the most secure ones in the market today.

 

It also has a Kill-Switch that automatically shuts down all the running applications in case of an internet disconnection. This feature prevents your traffic from being exposed if the VPN gets suddenly disconnected. You can enable the Kill Switch and choose which apps you want to be automatically closed. The Auto-Reconnect feature automatically connects you to ibVPN once the internet connection is back.

Servers and Server Locations. Watch your favorite foreign TV shows even if it is unavailable in your country, and access contents from restricted websites – there is no limit to what you can do on the internet by using ibVPN. It has up to 100 servers in 47 countries, with 63 locations around the globe. There are also servers for ibDNS, proxy, SockS5, and Tor over VPN, including six combinations of country servers for DoubleVPN.

 

P2P File Sharing. Fortunately, ibVPN supports torrents or peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing through select servers such as Netherlands, Luxembourg, Canada, Bulgaria, Hong Kong, Lithuania, Russia and Sweden. If you want a VPN plan that is solely for P2P and torrenting purposes, they are offering the Premium Torrent VPN. However, these torrenting servers are also included in the Premium Total and Ultimate VPN package, so availing these plans might be a better option for you.

 

Activity Logs. ibVPN has made it clear in their Privacy Policy that they respect their users’ privacy and they do not keep any activity logs. Your web history and downloads are all unrecorded, therefore ibVPN does not hold any specific information for a specific user in case of a legal intervention. Users are not required to submit any personal information; however, users must create an account to receive payment invoices and emails from ibVPN regarding their account. Payment methods are accepted through third party channels and ibVPN does not keep a user’s payment information except for the payment invoice.

Customer Support. For technical inquiries, you can submit a support ticket in their website, or email them at support@ibvpn.com. There is also a 24/7 live chat support, but we are not quite sure about the term ‘24/7’ since the live chat is down occasionally. You can also read about setup settings and troubleshooting in their website’s Help Center and Knowledge Base.
