Although virtual private networks (VPN) aren’t exactly a common knowledge among the public, there are a lot of VPN services in the market today. And some of them offer extremely affordable prices in exchange for mediocre security.

PureVPN is one of the VPN services that still take security very seriously. Probably one of the best VPN services that we have reviewed, PureVPN is a Hong Kong-based service providing internet users with security and privacy since 2006.

Read more about them in our review below.

 

Security and Protocols. PureVPN offers the usual protocols plus the newer, more advanced ones: PPTP, L2TP/IPsec, SSTP, OpenVPN, and IKEv2 which also employs the 256-bit military-grade encryption. These security features protects all the user’s data from hackers and snoopers, especially for those who frequently connect to public Wi-Fi hotspots such as those in coffee shops and airports.

As an added layer of protection, they also offer NAT Firewall (it blocks unrequested inbound traffic), DDoS protection (defeats the most complex DDoS attacks), and a fool-proof Internet Kill Switch (prevents traffic in and out of the computer when your connection fails).

Another upside for this VPN service is that they manage and maintain their own network – this means that all the servers are handled by PureVPN and all your traffic goes through them alone, not through third party companies. You’ll have faster connection speed, and if you should have problems with your server, you can contact them directly.

For those who are new to the VPN technology, PureVPN has the Automatic Protocol Selection where they choose the best type of protocol that suits your needs.

Servers and Server Locations. With over 500 servers located in 141 different countries, in 180 different locations, you have so many options to choose from. You can access all of their servers in any package plan that you subscribe to, and switch servers as many times as you want. Plus, with split tunneling, you can decide which data goes through PureVPN’s servers and which goes through your internet service provider.

Since they maintain their own servers, you’ll have faster connection speed, perfect for streaming videos and other forms of entertainment with their Smart Purpose Selection feature. They also prevent throttling by your internet service provider by covering your online tracks.

IP Address Features. With over 80,000 IP addresses, you never have to worry about your online anonymity because you can switch to a different IP every time you log in. And if you want an IP address that is exclusively yours with complete privacy and security, then you can have a dedicated IP.

Device Connection and Compatibility. PureVPN’s software and applications can be used on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Linux. It is also compatible with over 20 smart devices in your home such as consoles, routers, and televisions so the whole household can be protected as well. You can connect up to five devices with just one account.

Business VPN. PureVPN has something for everyone – even businessmen and entrepreneurs. Their business VPN is specially designed for accessibility and protection for your business and your employers as well. They can work remotely anywhere, and can access your company’s resources anytime under full security.

Every person using business VPN gets his/her own account, and the dedicated portal is the ‘command center’ where you can manage and control your employees’ accounts and workload. There are also dedicated VPN servers specifically for business VPN.

Using business VPN for your company will definitely make a huge difference in your privacy. It can also make transactions between you and your customers more secure, which will let you earn more trust.

Customer Support. Their customer support live chat is always ready to answer your questions regarding your connection no matter what time of the day it is. Plus, they are knowledgeable with everything about their VPN service so you’ll get your VPN problems solved immediately.

Pricing and Plans. PureVPN offers competitive prices for their services, which is reasonable since they have impressive security measures and the latest technology. Their prices start at $9.99 per month for one month, $7.99 per month for six months, and $4.99 per month for one year. And if you are having second thoughts on committing to their services, you can try their 7 days money-back guarantee. You can pay through PayPal or credit cards, and they also accept Bitcoin payments.

Overall Review. PureVPN is one of the best VPN services that is in the market today – it’s loaded with security features and the application is easy to use. The only downside is that they keep a record of your activity logs, which include the websites you visit, the data transferred between your devices and the servers, the IP addresses you accessed, and the time and duration of your connection and disconnection. A lot of people, if not everyone, do not want to any logs kept, so this is a major downside with PureVPN. Other than that, it is a great VPN service.
