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.
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:
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
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.
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.
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?
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
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
> 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
> 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.
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.
> 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.
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.
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)
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.

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
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
> 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.
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.
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'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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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
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.
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)
Look, I totally understand the hassle. I have tested many VPN services for myself and have mostly faced a great reduction in speed. And you have to accept that you will face a little reduction in speed while using a VPN for torrenting because that's the cost you have to pay for anonymity and encryption. My suggestion to you would be to use Ivacy VPN. It's the best VPN for torrenting in my opinion and has a very economical pricing too. Number 2 suggestion would be to use Express VPN. You can ask more if you want to know more about VPNs.
>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.
I personally use Ivacy VPN. I have used many other VPN providers like tunnel bear and express VPN, but I found Ivacy to be slight better. And they provide unlimited bandwidth, so I think it'll work out for you too.
Hmmm. If you're concerned about the price then go for Ivacy VPN, because currently they are offering the Best Prices in the VPN industry right now- as low as $1.83 per month and moreover their persona is more inclined towards torrenting as all their servers are p2p optimized. I am torrenting for the past 2 months using Ivacy with a decent downloading and uploading speed. So, you can go for Ivacy VPN.
Ivacy is a VPN service that keep its users safe from hackers and data sniffers. Using Ivacy makes users anonymous while browsing internet or downloading files.
Stage: Product Launched
Looking for customers
85% discount on 12 month plans
VPS would not allow downloading illegal stuff, either buy seedbox for torrenting or VPN with split tunneling is the option. I use Ivacy (), which has Split Tunneling option.
Tunnelling only the torrent traffic seems the option for you.
You cannot do anything for now. Just pay for it and use a VPN to save further money from now on. I use Ivacy (). It is my favorite VPN for torrenting because of many reasons
Ok thanks! I couldnt find any Ivacy reviews on reddit, not many replies to my other thread also. Mullvad seems expensive, PIA looks cheaper to me. Honestly, I don't care about speed, at this point, I am only getting one for safety with p2p. Do you know any safe ones that are very cheap?
yeah one can always unblock sites using proxy servers or VPN service. I use a VPN service to download torrebts when I travel to China. Works like a charm every time! Oh and by the way I use Ivacy VPN.
I tried Ivacy a few weeks back and successfully cancelled my subscription with a full refund. I was concerned because some redditor had failed to do the same, reason was because somewhere in fine print is stated that they'll only refund if you spend less than 500 MB in the 7 day trial period.
What the guy from Ivacy offered wasn't that bad/bribe. I mean, he didn't even say "provide us a positive review", he just wanted it mentioned in the spreadsheet no? The user could have taken the account and did an actual review of it and said it was crap if he wanted no?
Tunnel bear is one of the best VPN I have used in terms of simple interface. But in case of speed, connectivity, encryption and value for money, I think Ivacy VPN is the best VPN I have used up till now.
Would just like to add one thing. hackers have grown quite powerful as of late. If they get their hands on your data, then only God can save you. Prevention is always better than cure. My friend's account was hacking, probably through a public wifi, and all her funds were stolen, Therefore it is suggested that one should always use a VPN, Ivacy for instance, in order to protect one's identity and data.
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?
This offer is still available. This is only my 3rd attempt at vpn after using for a year and giving nordVPN a try and being disappointed. After 3 days with Ivacy I am happy so far. The only issue is, when I set up a connection via openvpn (udp) with a server that's allegedly in my city, the speeds and pings are terrible. The support department confirmed my settings are correct and is now looking into their end for me. When i use their proprietary app (it only offers PPTP and L2TP) it's very fast, reliable and the P2P works well, and the app itself is pretty good so I can recommend it.
Which VPN are you using? Usually VPNs have these steps mentioned on their support center section. I use Ivacy and certainly they have mentioned everything regarding chromecast in this descriptive manual.
I am really a noob so I don't know much about all of this or how all the different VPNs stack up. However, I think the application for which you require a VPN and the price of each one can help determine what is best for you. If you don't need a lot of features and don't require heavy use, I think something around a $3 or $4 dollars a month service would work well. So long as there are no logs and it's not some crappy provider that looks shady AF, you probably can't go wrong. If you need more protection and features, of course you are going want to step it up and need to pay a bit more. What I mean to say is that generally, the fees and prices are not arbitrary and reflect the quality of the services. I'm sure there are sites out that that rank and review VPN services.
Froot looks like a good deal, but I'm probably going with Ivacy because it's a dollar cheaper per month and I don't require the use of a VPN very often. Hope I helped.
What about Torguard, you will find a coupon code on /r/vpncoupons so you will get it for nearly the same price as Ivacy: 30 USD/year or 10 USD / 3 months but with much higher quality than Ivacy. Their stealth VPN is supposed to work in China
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.
There are a few that are good for this. Ivacy is one of them. You check more providers for this specific purpose at torrentsvpn .com. Make sure you take your decision wisely cause only good speed is not enough, It should give you good security and complete anonymity too!
If you like them, no real reason to switch. They are one of the top tier VPN's.
Personally I like Ivacy because they are the most affordable, keep no logs, have a large selection of servers, and are good for torrenting.
I'll second Ivacy. Price is affordable (if not the cheapest VPN right now) and you'll get locked in at the rate you sign up for if you sign up before they increase the price.
They are very reliable for P2P / Torrents. Their Apps are very useful where they let you decide what you want to do, such as file sharing, extra anonymity, online poker, streaming, etc. and then it gives you the choice of countries to choose from. (Since P2P is not supported on all servers.)
It doesn't hurt to have a backup VPN. I have a few and still like Ivacy the best.
And of course, there are no logs.
I am using Ivacy VPN. Got it a year back at one of the most cheapest price.
The Lowest pricing – makes it easier for the audience to opt for a VPN service.
400+ servers in 100+ locations including P2P optimized servers to facilitate torrent users.
Complete anonymity i.e. strict no-logs policy, Internet Kill Switch, IPv6 and DNS leak protection, accept Bitcoin.
Live Chat Support
any of these will work
safe vpn ( Air vpn. Pia. Ivacy. Cyberghost. Torguard. Express vpn. Perfect privacy. Nord vpn )
Probably the best Leak protection out of these got air vpn.
and kinda cyberghost.
Ik heb zelf Ivacy als VPN. Ze houden geen logs bij (wat erg belangrijk is schijnbaar) en woon in amerika (als ik torrent krijg ik een mooi briefje van mijn provider)
Ik doe een shitload torrenten via mijn VPN en heb nog nooit een probleem gehad.
Het enige rukke is dan wel weer... Als ik via VPN download kan ik niet naar netflix kijken want dan krijg ik een melding dat ik niet in amerika ben (terwijl ik dat dan fysiek wel ben zeg maar).
1st world problem i suppose
A few suggestions from me:
Purevpn, Ivacy, ExpressVPN, PIA, and VYPRVPN
Hope you will find what you are looking for man!
P.S. Randians sounds funny to me :D please make it Redians or Radians (just a suggestion) please don't mind everyone :)
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.
Although you all getting yourself HULU but remember you can unblock Hulu content via VPN and its a must get tool if you are getting HULU. Ivacy VPN masters in this and you may can get Ivacy right now at cheap rates on the cyber Monday discount
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?
There is always a catch with Free VPNs. It's better to pay a bit and go for the "Actually Best" VPN services. I recently got Ivacy VPN for as low as $1.34 a month for the 3-year plan and got access to all their premium features.
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!
Good deal price wise, but for the privacy concerned, I'd make my own judgement based off of the comparisons here. VPN's have been pushed greatly and i'd say there are other and better providers. Ivacy has some concerns for me (no private payment methods being a big one).
Please take a look here:
and just over to any of these for more information:
There is no best.
Only probably top in category x.
Privacy? "perfect privacy vpn" long in the game survived multiple server raids and server takings by multiple country's police. But pricey.
Air vpn best for the money in my. Opinion great policy. Survived too multiple raids. Great speed, open source software, great support. Unique features
Cyberghost great price on eBay. Unique features, not the fastest.
Torguard rather overall good vpn.
Pia survived too raids and the FBI didn't find logs either. Price is too, good but speeds can be bad in some country's.
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.
