And miss out on his wonderful journey of tech hassles and shady marketing practices? Oh okay.
I tested 29 Windows VPN clients for DNS, IPv4 and IPv6 Leaks. Six (AirVPN, FrootVPN, IVPN, Mullvad, Perfect Privacy and SlickVPN) performed perfectly. Three others (CyberGhost, and ) hit VPN-specified nameservers directly while reconnecting after uplink interruption. But that's not a huge issue, in that they didn't hit other nameservers. The other 20 Windows VPN clients failed in various ways. Over half leaked IPv6 packets whenever the machine was connected to the Internet. After uplink interruption, some failed to reconnect automatically, and some leaked IPv4 packets.
IVPN provided funding and technical support for this work.
No logging at all. They specify it on the terms. Most other providers claim no logging but don't specify, and if they do they often leave out connection logs and so on.
They have low amount of servers but from reputable companies. Other providers just want a number of machines in each country, regardless other variables that increase privacy and security.
From their page: "IVPN is a registered private company based in Gibraltar and is prepared to relocate should laws ever change that may affect the privacy of our customers."
Other details like own DNS servers (which don't log), no affiliation programs and other crap which PIA excels at. They're members of EFF, they use only open-source technologies, support obfuscation and multi-hopping, have a warrant canary and so on.
For these reasons and others they're the gold standard. Other good choices could be BlackVPN and for instance.
