Not really surprising. In the U.S. almost all of the media outlets in the country is owned by something like only 6 companies. I did find this bit amusing:
>Gaditek, the Karachi-based tech company, officially claims to own just 3 VPN products (PureVPN, Ivacy and the newer Unblock VPN & Proxy). However, we’ve discovered two more VPN products. We also show that this company runs the VPN review sites , , , and 2 others
I wouldnt want to be accused of advocating for a particular VPN. I am subscribed to Ivacy though which I think I bought a 2 year sub for less than £2 a month. Its not the absolute fastest, so I have been told, but for just casual torrenting I am happy with it.
See the below link for some reviews:
Regardless of this news, they have been a shady provider from the beginning, even with their marketing techniques alone. They constantly make fake user names, astroturf, and shill all over Reddit and deals sites.
They use fake server locations as well. Ivacy and PureVPN are one in the same company, btw.
December 22, 2015 at 4:15 pm
PIA is a class act. Cheap, reliable, and I trust them. I sign up by the year.
I’ve tried others. and Shadeyou are slow.
Ivacy is the worst I’ve tried. Terrible customer service and communications. The only good thing is decent speeds and many servers around the country. Ivacy will leak dns so its imperative to change dns servers to something else. I use PIA’s dns servers system wide."
From a site reviewing VPNs
Dont jump on this "offer" its a random vpn you are handing all your data over to them they can do ANYTHING with it.
They can steal your data and see EVERYTHING and log everything.
if you want a legit Netflix vpn there are many out there but without looking i know Ivacy works.
Don't use free vpn.
Use a paid vpn with the necessary security and features.
One of the following
Ivacy, air vpn, perfect express, Torguard, Nord vpn, cyberghost, perfect privacy, pia.
Seriousl question, I thought PIA was under the gun lately since CISA for US users? Is this still the way to go? I checked into Ivacy a week or so ago and it looked a little too good to be true for the price, wondering if PIA has re-established itself here?
> NordVPN and ExpressVPN seem to be pretty much the most popular and well rated VPNs around
The Most popular one would be PIA cause its cheap.
Nord and Express vpn are the vpn with the most ads.
Other good vpn are Air vpn ( Great service , open source app awesome speed ) Ivacy , cyberghost , torguard , perfect privacy and more.
I've used a lot of VPN providers Ivacy, Torguard, ProtonVPN, NordVPN and PIA before deciding on Mullvad, Which at the time of me writing this is the only VPN to get a "TOP CHOICE" badge from I'm very happy with Mullvad and have absolutely no complaints. They're great. And you know that I'm not affiliated with them because they don't actually have an affiliate program.
You can learn more at
I would suggest accessing facebook and other websites using Ivacy VPN service as it is faster and more secure.
Chinese authorities have recently started rigorous online surveillance, and hence VPN services provide secure internet connection as well as privacy. If you want to increase your speed, I would suggest going for a good VPN service such as Ivacy. ( ) It is a good VPN service, and they have recently increased their servers catering to 150+ locations. While you can always go for free proxy services as well, but they come with a price. They will decrease your internet speed substantially and you’d have to compromise on security as well.
there are only 2 barely trust worthy p2p friendly vpn that are free
but both lack even the basic abilities to protect you. so not recommended
and dont forget running a SAFE and SECURE vpn is expensive af.
better would be Ivacy lifetime ( 20 € approx )
air vpn monthly / year
or pia monthly / year
Another vote for Mullvad here.
I used nordVPN when I was looking for a new VPN and couldn't handle it, the servers were slow and unstable.
Netflix and Hulu worked great on them which is a plus, but the speeds were honestly unbearable.
I have an 85/85MBPS connections and with Nord I got into the single digits. Customer support was rude and overall just a bad experience. (this was when connecting to the closest server to me.)
I tried PIA for a week or so and had no problems, but I have my doubts about VPNs located in the 5 eyes.
After a lot of research I ended up going with Mullvad. The only VPN to get the ThatOnePrivacySite TOP CHOICE badge
A list of VPNs I had tried before settling on Mullvad (in no particular order.): Torguard,Ivacy,PIA,NordVPN,ProtonVPN (Another great one, but very pricey).
Haven't had a problem with Mullvad. Would really recommend.
In my opinion the home page is too text heavy and should be broken up with more images and shorter text along the lines Envoken stated. Focus copy on pain points and shorten it. You want people to know almost immediately what Ivacy does so they don't bounce.
In terms of increasing followers on your social pages you might try participating in discussions on current events on major news sites with a username that is Ivacy Privacy Management or something like that. This may help to drive some to your sites out of curiosity if you provide good content.
Lastly posting articles and white papers that provide details on some of the research that Ivacy has done in the sector on LinkedIn group pages can drive traffic as well.
Just my two cents.
have you actually seen them selling at $143? just because they say it's a 72% discount, doesn't mean it is. Take IPvanish for or PIA Have you ever seen them selling at $143 or $83 respectively? I haven't. Ivacy was never selling at $143 either. This is a marketing trick, nothing more than that.
Same. An audio ad for Ivacy VPN plays each time the user enters the Settings menu of CouchPotato. If you exit and return to Settings or refresh the Settings page and the ad will play again.
The ad begins: "So, you are someone who just loves torrenting..."
As OP said, outrageous.
NZBHydra is a tremendous app. For now, I'll be shutting down CouchPotato and using Hydra exclusively. I'd rather not be surprised by whatever may be next in the CouchPotato monetization scheme.
Using a vpn will protect and is fine.
It should be a non logging one.
Any vpn of that list will do it.
Air vpn. Pia. Ivacy. Cyberghost. Torguard. Express vpn. Perfect privacy. Nord vpn
In no particular order.
Just choose one ivacy got lifetime deals if you want but isn't as easy as let's say air vpn or Pia to use.
May I ask what other vpn you have used?
I've been searching for an alternative, so far I've tried using Ivacy and pure vpn and both are slow compare to express. My normal speed without expressvpn is around 25-30mbps and HK1 gives the best result around 4-5mbps and 60-80 ping.
> Ivacy VPN, one of the fastest emerging virtual private network (VPN) service has announced the Kodi VPN add-on for devices supported by OpenELEC operating system.
> Although Ivacy addon for Kodi/XBMX player is absolutely free, you need to have an active Ivacy account which costs 1.83 p/month.
I am using Ivacy and its the same thing with Hulu at least, sometimes I can go a few hours before "Reseting" it other times It stops after 30 minutes. It does have a built in setup for "Streaming" that makes it pretty easy though.
First of all there's a difference between Smart DNS and A VPN. Unblock-US is not a VPN it's a Smart DNS. It's used to unblock geo-restricted websites, but it does not make you anonymous or hide your i.p. A good VPN makes you anonymous by masking your i.p so that no one can figure out from where you are actually connecting from. I've been using Ivacy VPN to watch NFL and NHL online during my trips to Asia, and it work great. Maybe if you change your protocol, you can gain access to unrestricted site.
I am more interested in seeing how companies that are directly involved in dealing with user data would respond to GDPR. Specifically VPN companies like Nord, Express, Windscribe and Ivacy who have till now garnered a good reputation; how would they be addressing things to their customers would be something to observe.
> Which VPN is the best for me?
No one can tell you. I use Ivacy (), it is cheap, fast and does not keep logs
> will be able to pay via PayPal or PaySafeCard
You may pay for most of the VPNs via PayPal (including Ivacy)
> I will mostly be torrenting
Choose a VPN that allows torrenting (Ivacy allows it)
> Is torrenting really 100% safe if i use a VPN?
If you keep internet kill switch and secure DNS enabled then you are good to go.
I know a lot of people might be opposed but I've been using Ivacy for a few months with little to no complaints. They have servers all around the world dedicated to P2P sharing, easy to use software, and with a price point of $49 for two years it's hard to pass up.
I use one called Ivacy - seems to work pretty well, servers in loads of countries around the world, and I got a "lifetime" account for about $40 (apparently you have to email them to keep it active after 5 years) - I just searched for something like "lifetime VPN offers" and found them via a "Groupon" style page (they distribute offers to subscribers)
You should use a VPN even if you do not have CISA problems. There are many reasons to use a VPN.
Yes, you can watch Netflix from other countries by VPN. I use Ivacy () to access Netflix and other websites from outside US.
you never know what a Free VPN might do with your data... hola was selling user's bandwidth for botnets! never go for a free vpn unless you are ready to compromise your privacy... I have been using Ivacy vpn for quite some time; It's quite reliable!
I have been using them for a couple months. They don't offer autoreconnect via the OpenVPN client. You have to go to the linux page to get the .ovpn files, support is only good for easy questions (don't ask anything technical) and there is no auto reconnect unless you use their bundled client. It really makes me wonder why they want me to use their client so badly.. Oh, search Ivacy here and you will see they tried to bribe someone for positive reviews.
I will keep it short because if I start telling you the benefits of a paid VPN service especially for a gamer then that's gonna take very long. I can understand you don't want to spend on a paid VPN service but trust me when I say this there are quite a few cheap yet amazing VPN services, such as Ivacy, which can solve your said issue. Otherwise, you will never be satisfied with a free VPN.
Oh and also that Ivacy is available at an 87% black Friday discount so don't let this opportunity go waste.
IIRC it's 65535 combinations.
If the data ever gets requested by court order in the US to find a user, it would still give a user plausible deniability.
It is already live.
Ivacy, AirVPN, PIA, NordVPN, ExpressVPN, Cyberghost, IPVanish, ProtonVPN, and VyprVPN all have analytics that collect much more information.
I use Ivacy VPN and it works fine for me.
>Doesn't keep logs
> Which VPR do YOU believe to be the best of the best?
I don't believe it to be the best; It's just that it works fine for me.
I'm not familiar with Ivacy in particular but I would be careful to weight ease of use against security. For most users one VPN is much like the other. Lifehacker has some great articles covering the basics of what you should look for in a VPN. If you're running on an Android box there are VPN app's you can use, including ones from PIA. That's what I recommend.
If you're talking about cheap and good at the same time I would recommend you no other than Ivacy VPN for Netflix. I am surprised to see so many shows unlocked because of the regional restrictions. Ivacy works great with Netflix I haven't experienced those proxy errors I was getting all the time with IPVanish. Ivacy is knows for the most cheapest VPN in the market and it does the Job just fine so you might wanna consider it.
Hi, excellent post. Here is a mistake in maths. ExpressVPN is 59.95 United States dollars, in Canadian dollars it is $77.31, which makes the total investment $194.31/sessions instead of $176. I am using Ivacy VPN, which is only $57.95 for 6 months. which makes the total investment only $174.95/sessions or $29/month.
Well, Ivacy offers many great features such as:
5 multi logins
256 bit encryption
P2P file sharing
Unlimited server switching
Smart Purpose Selection
Unlimited Data Transfer
24/7 Customer Support
Internet Kill Switch
and much more!
1 use a legit vpn provider.
2 your in the Kindergarten land copyright wise. aka nothing should happen now. If you fail further then you are at risk.
Follow the rule
Torrent client on
Torrent client off
Also get one of the following legit vpn
Also remove your IP and that you said you did it. Just saying :)
Express vpn. Air vpn. Ivacy. Pia. Cyberghost. Torguard. Nord vpn. Perfect privacy. ( no particular order)
Browser extensions only cover the browser and are most times only Proxys which doesn't encrypt.
You need a known non logging VPN
Like Pia. Nord. Torguard. Ivacy. Cyberghost. Express vpn. Air vpn. And stutf
Or are they like some VPN's where if they get a DMCA notice and simply terminate your account.
Have you ran tests (such as ) to make your it's using their IP address?
Still safer to use a paid VPN in my opinion. Most paid VPN's keep no logs, so even if they did get a DMCA notice, they have nobody to give it to. There are always discounts going on, so you can lock in a good rate for the life of your account.
TorGuard has a 50% off sale, $29.99 per year.
Ivacy is $39 for 2 years.
NordVPN is $36 for 1 year.
And there's quite a few other sales going on if you look around. has a few sales going on as well.
TorrentFreak has a good write up on the best anonymous VPN's for 2016.
> What is the best VPN to use for torrenting
I use Ivacy () and it is my favorite VPN for torrenting. But, there are many other VPNs too. Just don't forget to choose the VPN that supports Torrenting.
> how do I set it up?
You just need to buy the subscription, install the client, select additional options i.e. Internet Kill Switch, IPv6 Protection, DNS leak protection, etc and connect it.
> I am looking at Private Internet Access
It is also a good VPN, it is also one of the best VPNs for torrenting
> how to even get it to work with torrenting.
Just told above
There are many great VPNs out there. I have personally used Tunnel Bear, ExpressVPN, IPVanish and Vypr VPN, and currently, I am using Ivacy VPN. Every VPN have their pros and cons. It would be easier for me to help you if you can tell me your budget and your purpose of using a VPN? Different VPNs have different personas. I use Ivacy for torrenting and streaming specifically.
Opera VPN is all set to shut down so I use Ivacy VPN. Their Lite app/ version is free but in direct response to your question for getting THAT update, I'm not so sure. I think as long as you're connected to a different region such as Germany or in @lussyphre's case Canada, it should get the job done.
I understand why is it that you use Opera VPN and not any other because it's free. It has an ardent fan base or had (which would be more appropriate now) but when it comes to free VPNs, you can try Ivacy and their Lite app/version in order to achieve the same result. Their app does not allow you to hand pick any particular server but since it's free, I'm guessing it will let you connect from among the most optimal ones out there. Download your desired update and well should you choose, as Odd-One-Out pointed; delete the app. In the end, it's all about getting the job done. Cheers!
IPVanish is good, I have heard good reviews about it (specially its speed), so you can go with it.
> I would love to know what you all use
But, I myself use Ivacy. It has many features that makes it favorite for torrenting.
To give you an idea they give unlimited bandwidth, allow torrenting, does not keep logs, IPv6 and DNS leak protection, Internet Kill Switch (stops internet if VPN disconnects), Split Tunneling (So that I can route only torrent traffic through it) etc.
You can buy Ivacy (). They are running a Christmas deal in which they are offering $1.83 per month on annual subscription. They claim that they allow torrenting at fast speed and does not keep user's logs.
Well without VPN it is a no no now! If you ask me, I personally use Purevpn and it is pretty decent in securing my activities and IP from my ISP (not using Verizon though). It is pretty good with downloading torrents and they have servers optimized for torrenting which is the best part. So i would suggest to go for it. You might also wanna check Ivacy too, cause it specially claims to be a torrenting VPN.
"I swear I've read somewhere that you can do this, but for the life of me I cannot find anything in PIA settings or on their knowledgebase. "
You have read it somewhere before most likely in a forum discussion, on a web page some place else, etc.... Its called 'split tunneling' and the reason you can't find it "in PIA settings or on their knowledgebase" is because its not there because PIA does not do split tunneling. PIA steers away from these types of "more advanced" features.
To get that functionality you will need to go with another VPN service. For example, ExpressVPN, PureVPN, and Ivacy have split tunneling, and of those three PureVPN probably has the best, most stable, and most mature split tunneling capability.
What device are you using? If you're on a PC and using Chrome or Firefox, you can use Ivacy browser extension and connect to Switzerland server. If you're using Android or iOS, you can use the app, though Chrome extension is a pretty simple method.
All in all is Ivacy VPN one of the best VPNs we have tested! Great speed, secure connection with all the features you might ask for. What we also like is the easy to use interface.
For a full Ivacy VPN review take a look at this review.
You can enter "vpnpioneer" as a coupon code to receive a 10% discount on your purchase. Take this bonus link to get to the offer page.
Truer words were not spoken. There was a time when I looked for free VPNs only. But then I learned that they keep logs of your online activity which they sell to marketing agencies. I don't if it's completely true but it's always better to be safe than sorry. I have a paid Ivacy subscription now and it works just fine!
i had the same problem a while ago. It's funny because Express isn't a "freebie" so it shouldn't be happening. Did you give Ivacy a try? it's got danish servers that you can check out from their server page (i forgot the link). but you can find it by navigating through their homepage....
let me know if that works.
I did give NordVPN a try, using their free trial.
I found the service unbearably slow, even with my Fiber Optic Internet.
Give the free trial a try, if that doesn't work out no harm done.
some alternatives I'd recommend: Mullvad, PrivateInternetAccess, Torguard, Ivacy
all of which are cheaper than NordVPN.
No, it doesn't matter. VPN wouldn't help with tricking any mapping software. It doesn't matter if you used a paid one like NordVPN, Strong VPN, Ivacy, etc. or free VPNs like Opera, Proton or Zoog your location would still be detected. VPN only changes your IP while maps require you to enable GPS.
Reddit accounts that affiliate with VPN providers cannot be trusted to give unbiased opinions on VPNs. Granted your Reddit account isn't nearly as bad as other Ivacy VPN shills that exist on Reddit but the fact is you've affiliated with them. (in fact Ivacy is not the only VPN provider you've affiliated with)
Same applies to those VPN "review" websites littered with affiliate links. Reddit accounts spam those too.
Just FYI there are a lot of Reddit spam accounts for that particular VPN service. Don't be surprised if you get any replies here from those Reddit accounts telling you how awesome the service is, etc.
e.g. /u/l21zxib8tr0f33v3 is a Ivacy affiliate (see their user history) so obvs they will say great things about the service.
Whether it's an Android, Windows or iOS device, now you can protect it with Ivacy VPN! This Black Friday, Ivacy is giving smartphone users an unbelievable 87% off on it's 1-year plan with the amazing 1+1 offer!
Simple - purchase a Ivacy VPN account, for $13 for 30 days, setup for US server. Ta da - All US based video sites now let you watch them.
I do this from the UK.
edit : price was wrong
No, you're not crazy. It's been all the talk over on /r/couchpotato lately.
There's a detailed writeup on how it works and how to potentially disable it. The general consensus I've seen is to quit using or boycott CP until they can either confirm or deny if this was intentionally done as a team or if it was some rogue coder making a quick buck. Many have suggested NZBHydra for now.
One thing is for certain - Ivacy VPN has only worsened their opinion with me after this stunt.
Free Proxys are unreliable even Free VPNs are also if you really want to avoid letters and whatnot from your ISP then must use paid VPN more secure then free.. you can go with Ivacy VPN and some other VPNs I would recommend are IPVanish, Express VPN, Nord VPN.
I already have PIA, so I use the killswitch with them :)
I was just curious of Ivacy did it too.
However thanks for your answer, technically speaking I did hear it from reddit a long time ago when I was deciding which VPN to go with.
1 - I signed up for the yearly plan only to find them offer the two year plan shortly after.
They refunded my 1 year plan past the 7 days they allow you. And I signed up on the 2 year plan after my refund cleared.
2 - Speeds are fine, and there are hundreds of servers to choose from. Speeds have been comparable to TorGuard for me. Check their terms, there is no logging. You can torrent anonymously. Even their BLOG posts about Kodi, the most popular torrented movies, etc. So they are definitely a torrent friendly VPN.
3 - May or may not be true, and even if it is, doesn't look like a bribe. An offer was made for a review, didn't say it had to be good.
Really the best way to make up your mind is to try something for yourself. With their current special 2 years for $39.99, it's hard to beat. You have 7 days to request a refund if it isn't for you.
And no I'm not affiliated with Ivacy in any way, just a very satisfied user.
PIA works fine, you could maybe try another of their servers & see if that helps? Or try some of the other services to get an idea of which ones have better speeds for you? Aside from PIA I like AirVPN but can't be sure that their performance will be much better for you.
Ivacy spams a lot on Reddit (probably the reason you heard about them), I'd recommend avoiding them. You'll probably see some of their spam Reddit accounts comment here too.
> if the connection is interrupted, does it block your regular internet access?
If you enable the kill switch in PIA's torrent client, yes. But that's kind of the point, you don't want to accidentally torrent with the VPN connection down.
Same here from another satisfied user. Especially like the smart server selection where you choose what you want (torrenting, streaming, extra privacy, etc.) and then it gives you a selection of servers to choose from.
I've been able to use Hulu fine with Ivacy on.
Speeds and reliability are good.
The only problem I have is with the Android app - if you have an ipv6 address, it will leak. The Windows client has built-in ipv6 leak protection, a feature that has not yet made it to Android.
Over all though a pretty good experience.
Best VPNs are never free and the VPNs that are free aren't the best. If you have a tight budget like me you can use Ivacy VPN that is as low as $1.66/month and provide all the necessary features for torrenting. Moreover, as far as I know it is the only VPN that provide torrenting through a US server.
VPNs have massive issues with Sierra. I am using Ivacy VPN, they have even launched a beta version especially for Sierra to overcome issues that the stable versions has with Sierra. Their beta app is working fine on Sierra.
Thanks, I used UnblockUs for a few years, worked great (they even gave me reddit gold once for being an UnblockUs homer). I use PIA now as it's cheaper and does more in the long run.
That Ivacy vpn sure is a great price, any idea how good it is?
I'm not sure but personally I wouldn't use it because the ratings of this on stores doesn't impress me. Plus I'm not sure if they offer specific servers for p2p. Ivacy and purevpn does which I'm sure about cause I have used it myself!
Well, I've been using Ivacy for some time now. The first OS i used it was 8.1 and just a few months ago i've finally migrated to 10, so has my team... it's interface is decent and manageable and doesn't require admin rights to run every time.
Well you can check out their features page. i can list the link here if it's okay...
compare the two and make the decision for yourself. I'm only using Ivacy right now so not sure about which to pick between the two. so you're going to have to do it yourself. :)
hope that helps
Cisco anyconnect offers support for Win10. Windows itself has VPN support. All you need are VPN server(s) you are connecting to and your authentication/encryption. If you aren't tech savvy, you can always get your IT guy to do it for you. If you're using Ivacy or Pure, i don't think you'll have to go through that much trouble connecting either.
I would suggest you go for a reliable paid one, cause it is safer for you and you might find a good discount on many since it is Christmas/holidays season. You might wanna look at purevpn, pia, express, Ivacy to have an idea!
I had a friend go to China for her Master Degree, and she was in need of a VPN, i was using Ivacy VPN so i recomended Ivacy to her, till now its working quite well she hasnt complained about anything plus its lighter in cost as compared to other VPN's available.
none i know of. the problem is, Netflix is on this mission to not allow vpns to work as a backdoor. what VPNs are doing to get around is that some that are working atm, they're not offering it out-of-the-box. instead, in a couple of instances - especially in the case of Ivacy VPN only cuz I'm using that atm - I had to get their support team to have it configured manually through an online chat session. Think it's on purpose.
I didn't say free, I'm just saying that I don't want to be paying more than ~15$ canadian a month.
EDIT: So I checked that list, Ivacy seems like the best deal and is ranked second. Is Ivacy a good brand?
The services mentioned in the article are definitely good, but I can't go for multiple ones at the same time. Good to see the one that I already use i.e. purevpn. I chose it cause of the many factors mentioned in the article along with the fact that it ain't based in any of the 14 eyes countries. So, quite satisfied that it is the part of the list. I often suggest few services to people which are fortunately in the list like IP Vanish,Express, Purevpn, PIA, Ivacy and Nordvpn. Thanks for the share and thanks to torrents freak to approve about these services!
At first I used windscribe's trial but that's limited to 10gb, then I used mullvad 3h trial.
Now I have Ivacy because I got a lifetime account for like $20 on stacksocial, which I guess is not a "good" vpn, but since I don't use it for anything shady or illegal (only for uplay downloads) I don't care.
Ivacy VPN had been in the indsutry since 2007 and was one of the first companies to introduce the Split tunneling feature. Our focus on improving our service quality year by year has given us a solid ground to provide users with uniques features which we keep adding every now and then. We believe in privacy, security and anonymity of our users by giving them limitless location based options which they can change as many times as they can. Ivacy VPN offers 200+ servers in 100+ locations to hide behind. For more information google ivacy
Yes, I 've been using Ivacy also a VPN for almost a year now it was cheapest back then and some how still is almost $2/mo. The core reason behind getting a VPN was to unblock geo restricted content in addition to keeping myself safe online in the process. Since a VPN can also ad a layer of security since all the data in the connection called a tunnel is encrypted. If you want to hide your online location than a VPN is a good way to do it.
Hi, excellent post. Here is a mistake in maths. ExpressVPN is 59.95 United States dollars, in Canadian dollars it is $77.31, which makes the total investment $194.31/sessions instead of $176.
I am using Ivacy VPN, which is only $57.95 for 6 months. which makes the total investment only $174.95/sessions or $29/month.
If you're still interested, I've been using Ivacy and it works great. Last time I checked they currently had 83% off too, works out to be like $1.83 per month ($21.96/year) (I think)...
I wrote up a mini review for it awhile ago if you want to read it...
Bro. Use Ivacy VPN. Make sure VPN is engaged when you go to login into Bitdegree to buy your tokens. Using a VPN is so easy that if you let you stop you from participating in an ICO, you deserve to be missing out. In any case, you can always buy BDG when it launches on exchanges, but who knows if you'll be able to get them at ICO prices or not! Good luck!
Yes, but you think is the proper solution? or there will be any way that we will get off this shit of restricted websites and blocked content? As same I am also using Ivacy VPN because most of the website are geo restricted
I personally use Mullvad and I love the service.
I've tried Torguard, Ivacy, ProtonVPN and a few others before finally settling on Mullvad. Mullvad doesn't require ANY personal information not even an email address and can be paid anonymously with Monero by using to convert Monero to Bitcoin and anonymously pay.
I'd highly recommend Mullvad to anyone who wants a good No Logs VPN Provider. Mullvad is also (to my knowledge) the Highest scoring on That One Privacy Site's Detailed VPN Comparison Chart which i'd highly recommend looking at when searching for a good VPN provider.
Check out ProtonMail, if both sender and receiver use it you will have end to end encrypted emails.
Also I use Ivacy for VPN, they have multiple applications for all platforms.
They are not free but they are one of the best.
If all you want to do is watch UK TV, then you should probably just go with the cheapest option. Ivacy has a 2-year deal for $49.
Here's a review of several VPNs:
I appreciate you sharing this. It was helpful. I am just concerned how my VPN companies would respond to this with whom I am blindly trusting my online data with. ExpressVPN, Nord and Ivacy are till dat the most trutable, but nothing can be vouched for sure as their stance before and after May 25th would clarify a lot of things.
There are 2 free ones that are "trust worthy"
Siga vpn and Betternet
But! Both lack the standard NEEDED features aka leak protections, network lock, and stuff
I would say buy pia for the cheap way
Air vpn for features and still being cheap
Cyberghost if you can get a license In magazines or online somewhere
Ivacy lifetime for like 20 Euro (best deal using them myself since 3 months)
> If I torrent without a VPN will I get caught?
Different countrys different rulings .
I heard in india its pretty easy to pirate
And in germany Suicide without a vpn.
So. Where are you located ?
a vpn is anyway a good idea if you pirate you can find vpn as cheap as 1,25 per month ( Ivacy on sale )
or 50 lifetime ( ivacy)
or around 3 per month ( Pia )
or probably another one would be Air vpn the probably best vpn out there .
Free ones just dont have the necessary features to protect you.
The deal you listed is $2.75/mo for a 3 year subscription, so really it's not 2.75/mo it's a $99/3 years, which is much more commitment than most people are willing to give a VPN.
Realistically if you want to pay monthly you have to pay $11.95/mo which is even more expensive than a ProtonVPN paid subscription, which I'd consider a pretty expensive VPN provider.
Haven't tried them recently though, so their speeds could have been increased since i last tried about 3 months ago.
And no I didn't select a server 2000 miles away, I clicked on the nearest server and experienced super slow speeds on my 80mbps up 80mbps down connection. I was getting around 6 - 10mbps while connected to my nearest server on NordVPN, which is the slowest connection I've ever gotten from a VPN and I've used many.
Mullvad, Torguard, Ivacy, ProtonVPN and PrivateInternetAccess all performed much much better.
So you want to speak about sale prices ? there are even better alternatives hell you can buy Ivacy Lifetime right now for 39,99 with unlimited speed and no caps.
Other vpn go as cheap as 0,99 or even less that are better on sale cyberghost is even on Ebay for like 1 year 9-13 € or in magazines sometimes for 3€ per year !
What i see is 1 year plan 5.75 Month ( more expensive than practically everyone else that are better )
or whopping 11.95 for 1 month.
Meanwhile Air vpn, Pia , Ivacy are better and cheaper alternatives. specially air vpn and ivacy have great support.
Specially air vpn is Superior in any manner.
>However, speeds turned out to be a bit disappointing for me; especially the servers in Sweden are painfully slow.
on air vpn ? they Guarantee 4mbps per user and there are tons of people using 270 MB + 1 guy even uses " 379.75 Mbit / sec "
Theres only 2 servers near or above 90% usage the one where the guy with 379 Mb is and another one with not so much speed.
you sure it wasnt an issue on your end ? i allways maxed my connection air vpn
Air is freaking awesome if i didnt buy Ivacy Lifetime for like 20 euro i would certainly go for them.
>I had just hoped there was a way...
there are 4 ways.
And pls dont buy blind like R4AW vpn looks VERY CHEAP but they log even while they claim they dont just google.
Ask people before. Good VPN are the following , Ivacy , Cyberghost , Air vpn , Pia , Torguard .
Don't torrent. If you stream you will most likely be fine. If you want some more security use Ivacy VPN for 40$ one time fee (lifetime deal) at Stacksocial(.com) and connect to any Swiss VPN server (or any server outside Germany, pref. Swiss, NL, RU).
Ofc Crunchyroll/Netflix is the best choice. CR comes at 40€/year which is so much less than Netflix and probably less than 2 cups of coffee per month so consider it^^

Express got virtual locations so no
Trustworthy vpn are
Air vpn run by privacy activists
Pia Fbi reports states no logs
Cyberghost they changed countrys for better privacy based laws
Ivacy non logging p2p friendly even making blog posts for p2p sites and more
I used to be an Ivacy affiliate, Notice I did not give out an affiliate link to Ivacy.
Honestly just trying to help here.
In the previous post you saw which I gave an Ivacy affiliate link, I was also specifically trying to help someone who could have possibly used the service. I was also very transparent about my link and I also gave a direct link to .
Don't you think If I was currently trying to sell Ivacy that I would have called them more than just decent and okay?
Not sure if everybody is able to catch the action live in their regions. But if you have laws restricting you from watching illegal streams, make sure you get yourself a nice VPN service such as Ivacy or any of your choice like hma, tunnelbear, and hotspot shield etc.
I know that that's the common knowledge in the VPN market and it's mostly true. Thing is, it's only mostly true of free vpns without a data limit. Nobody ever argues that Tunnelbear or Ivacy sell your data because they don't need to: you have to pay to actually use it extensively. It's like a free trial.
>You can just go ahead an buy lifetime subscription starting with $15. I've bought Ivacy for $40. Here is the list ;query=VPN%3A+Lifetime+Subscription
Recently I have happened to study a lot of VPN and I have come to y conclusion that Ivacy VPN, for me, is the perfect one. Ivacy VPN is designed to serve as a one-size-fits-all solution, thus allowing users to skip any hassles associated with finding more than one VPN for the type of experience they desire.
Ok if cost is your concern, then you are my kind of guy.
I just bought a life time Ivacy membership deal for $39 literally moments ago from Stacksocial. Many here have said nice things about Ivacy's privacy practice.
If you sign up a new Stacksocial account with my referral link, you will get $10 off, so that's like $29 for a life time VPN.
btw, how do you "priate" a VPN? what does it even mean?
I didn't know about it until a friend told me that the Netflix we have has limited library. It was when I connected to the US Netflix via a Netflix VPN, I realized that the hottest content is available there! so ever since then I have been using Ivacy VPN chrome extension to unblock US Netflix.
