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
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?
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.
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 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.
Then connect to Proton and visit , they have a free seedbox for torrents up to 10gb. Another alternative is r/PiratedGames is giving everyone who wants it a free day of Ivacy VPN, so you could queue up a bunch of torrents and let them sit overnight
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.
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.
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.

> 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.

No one can tell you. I use Ivacy (), it is cheap, fast and does not keep logs

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)

If you keep internet kill switch and secure DNS enabled then you are good to go.
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.
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.
If you look/ask around, you could probably get split tunnelling working with any provider you choose. A few modifications to the config files + the OS etc.
I'd give Ivacy a go and see how it goes for you. They have a "30-Days Money Back Guarantee*".
People who think the VPN channels they purchase like Nord VPN or Ivacy I fully private are smoking crack. You are tracked by other means, you open a marketing email, or visit a website or do a google search it’s all tracked.
VPN is good for access or resources and prevention of certain attacks on public networks. Some people who do not understand security or tech will not understand till they wake up.
"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.
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.

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)
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.
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
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
> 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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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
I tried with Ivacy who I have a subscription with, I think port forwarding is an addon for that you can only use when connecting through their app. I checked 'no' for force port forwarding after having it set to yes, up as I was hoping I could at least get the deluge gui to load but still no luck.
Thanks for the tip as I will be using this with radarr/sonarr when I eventually get it working :)
Not really, no. If you people find good solutions, we'd be happy to add them to the Wiki. VPNs, VPS thingies with traffic loopback/reflection, whatever.
Here's a couple, I'm not vouching for any of these. They're known VPN names. (I actually do have Ivacy and the three bucks I've paid for lifetime use sure paid off, but I'm not recommending unless you get it for the same price).
I've also seen Vultr mentioned.
When they had those lifetime deals, was WS service working well? I wasnt around then so i have no idea but was looking at some current lifetime VPNs, Keepsolid worked well so i bought lifetime. I tried Ivacy but it did not work well at all so i didnt get the lifetime, but im wondering if they might improve.
I have had Ivacy for a few years, and probably have been online for that long 99.9999% uptime, and tha speaks volume
I have always used a router with vpn function and do find that vpn over a router is much more stable compared through an apps.
Speed wise I had only had the chance to use pptp and openvpn, pptp maxes out my internet connection most of time, 50Mb, and pptp server location is not super critical to max out speed, while openvpn is around 10Mb, but i have not tried closer servers to where I am due to my own risk appetite
In terms of how safe or how secure Ivacy is compared to others, I do not know and that is always a great concern but this apply to all providers
Bottom line if you want a cheap service with great uptime and 24/7 support, Ivacy is a great option, just do yourself a favour and get a router with VPN if you are serious about an always on VPN connection
Sejauh ini pake VPN belum ada blokir yang benar² unsolvable (ga ada yang benar² susah buat diakalin throttling-nya), Indihom or any 4G mobile.
Pake secure DNS browser, kalo ga tembus pake app Cloudflare, kalo ga tembus juga pake VPN yang bayar. Ane pake FastestVPN yang lifetime 200k so far so good sih. Ivacy juga ada lifetime 600k kalo ga salah. 50Mbps lanjay. Tau kalo yang beratus² Mbps blum pernah coba.
Ich bin bei Ivacy, funktioniert ganz gut. B und zu gibt es Deals mit Jahresverträgen für <10€ pro Jahr, das ist unschlagbar.
Mit den meisten Servern, die ich ausprobiert habe, kann man eine 4-MByte-Verbindung durchgehend ausnutzen. Schnellere Internetzugänge nutze ich selten aber bei so 10-15MByte beim Downloaden war meist Schluss.
Ich habe aber auch mal im Ausland erlebt, dass eine Mobilverbindung mit Speed- statt Volumenlimit schneller statt langsamer wurde...entweder das VPN verwirrt Speedtest-Seiten, oder man kann damit Limitierungen umgehen, die auf der Analyse des Traffics basieren (gewisse Webseiten waren vom Speedlimit ausgenommen)
Don't bother with these scammers, I just bought a lifetime subscription, after emails this is what the tossers sent me back in email !

Greetings, I purchased a lifetime subscription but my account only shows 5 years, is this an error ? thanks

Dear Esteemed Customer,
Thank you for contacting Ivacy Support.
It is to inform you that in the tech industry, lifetime refers to the life cycle of a software, which is typically 5 years. So, this is the reason why our affiliates are offering the deal for 5 years and calling it a lifetime offer.
Feel free to contact on further queries/issues.
Ivacy Customer Success Team
Unfortunately for them I took a screenshot as I expected this kind of shady behaviour from the east
Ivacy is owned and operated by Gaditek - the makers of PureVPN. Gaditek is a Pakistan based organisation. PureVPN operates under the jurisdiction of Hong Kong and gave up logs to the FBI. If you care half a hoot about privacy, I urge you to stay away from all of Gaditek products - and that includes Ivacy.
Yea im using keepsolid now and it works well for US streaming, they dont have UK or CA netflix yet so was looking at Ivacy for that
I planned to get windscribe now with their sale, but was hoping ivacy would get better in a few yrs
I have a lifetime Ivacy sub. Works in an inconsistent way. See if you can still find a lifetime for VPN Unlimited / KeepSolid. I can’t recommend them for privacy but streaming has been flawless. And, of course, Windscribe is working well but not 100% of the times.
Har kun prøvet PureVPN, fordi jeg købte den engang der var tilbud, så har ikke noget sammenligningsgrundlag. Den er udmærket, men har også haft noget bøvl i med Plex efter jeg fik den.
Tror Express VPN, generelt vurderes som det bedste, men er også noget af det dyreste. Surfshark, Nord og Ivacy nævnes også i mange tests.
I would recommend Ivacy as it's by far the best very cheap VPN and I got the lifetime license for 40 bucks. While the desktop performance is fine and the extension works more or less (often requires signing in again on Firefox, no issues on Chrome), the mobile app and even manually setting up a server is pretty garbage.
From the reviews and user experiences, I'd probably go with Express or Surfshark (also great bang for buck).
Always use a VPN for piracy. r/PiratedGames is giving everyone a free day of Ivacy VPN right now, I'd recommend using that and torrenting a couple seasons. Alternatively, has a free seedbox for torrents up to 10gb in size.
I have Surfshark VPN and Ivacy VPN. They work fine on Windows, Android phone and Samsung tablet. Ivacy tends to work on my Nvidia Shield TV when using the Japan server. I sideloaded the Ivacy phone app because the Android TV version wasn't loading properly for me a few months back.
I prefer using Surfshark VPN because it has some other countries that don't work on Ivacy. Tonight I found that by sideloading the Netflix app from Android phones on the Nvidia Shield TV I am able to use Surfshark VPN without a problem.
I have Sideload Launcher on the Nvidia Shield to gain access to Chrome and downloaded the Netflix apk 7.73.1 from an apk site. I then used a file explorer to access the download folder to install the apk and access the Netflix app through Sideload Launcher. The interface is different so using the Shield remote app or keyboard/mouse would work better than a remote.
I have been unblocking different regions of Netflix for quite some time using Ivacy VPN. All you gotta do is subscribe to the said VPN, sign in and select Netflix US from the streaming tab.
I am sure you will be able to enjoy your movie like this too! :)
I haven't tried this in a long time, however I've heard that the BBC have really clamped down on all VPN services over recent years.
My brother-in-law uses my Ivacy account and only has sporadic success watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on whichever American service he streams through, presumably Netflix. Most IPs are apparently blacklisted.
To be honest, I would expect any sizeable VPN service to have trouble with this. It's an on-going game of whack-a-mole.
I used to use PIA for several years, however it was costing me a lot. I bought a lifetime subscription to Ivacy from StackSocial for $40USD w/ their portforwarding service about 3 years ago, and have been quite happy.
You obviously get what you pay for - speeds aren't great, but I get about 7MB/s down, and max out my upstream of ~2.5MB/s. It's enough for me.
They claim to have a no-logging policy. I can't test that, but the various VPN comparison sites I've perused seem to think its legit. I've certainly not had any trouble.
Their split-tunneling functionality in their client is incredibly useful.
I do miss using PIA's secure proxy service, though.
EDIT: I wrote a more thorough description of my Ivacy VPN experience on the post here: _ivacy_trustworthy/
Nope. I bought the Ivacy Lifetime plan from Stacksocial. Absolute garbage VPN. Constant connection issues, only uses 1/3 of internet speed. If you have 30 Mbps internet Speedtest only shows 10 on Ivacy etc. Randomly connects to a server even if you specifically chose a location. If you choose Germany it connects to France etc. Not only that its very slow to load websites like Youtube or even Reddit. Forget about browsing internet with this shit VPN. Torrenting is only allowed on SPECIFIC servers which may or may not even work properly. Constantly leaks IP when torrenting too. I wish I bought another VPN that wasn't this trash. Don't listen to the ads on their crap website saying they're "one of the best VPNs" when they're trash.
Here's link to torrenting allowed server list some of which are already gone. Torrenting is also throttled btw into the KBps range.
since I was a bit tight on the pocket I chose Ivacy VPN from the budget VPN category and to my surprise, it turned out to be one of my finest online purchases ever. Connects at one click and helps me dodge geo-restriction so I can watch UFC and other live sporting events. Absolute value for money and ever ready support staff! I recommend you all to download VPN now!
You can buy VPN such as Ivacy VPN, it has made a reputation for itself for unblocking Netflix regions everywhere very convincingly
Make sure to clear your browser history, clear browser cache. If you don’t do these the VPN won’t work as your browser will just automatically redirect you to geo specific mirrors. And even try resetting the OS timezone to the one you’re connecting to, someone’s this can help.
Will add not all VPN are created equal. Many content providers have a black list of IP addresses which they are moderately certain are servers working as VPN. I guess through the traffic amount? It’s bit of a cat and mouse game. There are better providers and even dedicated IP for extra cost. I had similar issues with BBC, Sky etc. I found Ivacy VPN worked better than others i tried but it’s still no guarantee. They do however work hard to spawn new servers if an IP gets flagged. Ultimately even if you get app setup don’t expect it to be stable. You may have move around VPN services. Ivacy also supports iOS and android by the way and they do long term sub discounts
Yes, Ivacy VPN can protect the user from such attacks, as it provides anonymity and security using the Military-grade encryption technique (AES 256). Once you get connected from Ivacy then all your data will be secured and encrypted and pass via the encrypted tunnel that will be almost impossible to breach.
Although it's always encouraged and recommended to buy the product/game/movie/app if you love it, but yes, if you're using a VPN with encryption, like Ivacy, the encrypted data will hide your footprints and it will be next to impossible for your ISP to spy on you .
Yes, Ivacy Provides account in bulk for business purpose, Just need to share your purpose and requirement. You can get a customized business account.
You can always reach out to Ivacy at () or ()
Yes. It's not like that actually. Ivacy supports both Disney Plus and Kodi. If a VPN supports Kodi, it can very well support all the addons within. So if you're using Ivacy app on a popular device like a Windows PC or an Android phone, you can first login using Ivacy app, then just open up Kodi app and work your way around like you normally would without a VPN. Nothing changes.
I tried this for the Season 4 update, using Ivacy VPN as I already have an account there, changed my location to Americas, exited, connected my VPN to America in Ivacy, started and it wouldn't download the update.
As I'd already started the update, it said "waiting for another update to finish" or something like that.
I was getting between 80kBps and 200kBps download speeds, which were abysmal.
So tried it still connected to America in my VPN but back on Europe in , and it started downloading.
Currently getting about 4.5-4.75Mbps, so over a 20 fold increase in download speed. My max download speed on my line is typically about 8MBps, so not getting the best download speed in that regard, but way better than what I was getting before! So for that I'm thankful!
I dont really recommend a free VPNs generally. They are basically B****sh**. You could however a 7 day trial with Ivacy. Been using it for some time now. The 1 year plan is super cheap too. It's always your call in the end but please don't go for those free ones mate.
You could Ivacy VPN 7 day risk-free trial I just noticed they are givig it away for some time now. Unfortunately, I didnt get to avail it and had already got their 1 year plan. It is still a great deal since the 1 year plan after the 7 day trial is available at 65% off. I got it to unblock BBC iPlayer here in Strasbourg since I am stuck here because of the stupid virus for the past 2 months.
Well you need to check from your VPN provider as they support torrents or not. Every VPN should support torrent as their key feature but not all VPNs are good enough for torrent. I personally use SurfShark and heard good reviews for Ivacy (for torrenting)
Hey. Depending on the model of TV, you can try several applications, but it will be very hard to find a stable free Netflix VPN.
For example, if you have android smart TV, you can try with Ivacy Free VPN that switches between different VPN servers automatically, or any similar app. But for my opinion, the best solution for smart TV will be to find a stable free VPN on your PC and convert your laptop or desktop (even smartphone) into a wireless router - in this case you’ll get much more opportunities with no risk to make a monitor from your TV.
I've tried to use Nord VPN on cubecraft ( my fav server ), and apparently, it's detected. I'm thinking about buying Ivacy VPN, the 5 year plan is 1 $ / month, should I try it? I heard that many people use it. I mostly cheat on funcraft , gamster, mineplex and cubecraft , so I need something that could bypass em' all, hope that ivacy will perform well. PrivateInternetAcces is also a good VPN but it costs a lil bit more and since I will only use a vpn for Minecraft, I don't need the best product out there. So, what do you think about it?
It is definitely a stolen account, I would advise not using it. Never buy from those instant delivery shops, they sell stolen accounts.
If you need a legitimate VPN subscription on the cheap, Stacksocial always has deals for lifetime subs for $20-30. I have been using Ivacy for almost a year now and it's great:
You're going to always get slower as you move up the chain in protocol security. PPTP is fastest but least secure. UDP is where I feel comfortable. It depends on location largely as well. I just did 80mbps on Nord and Bullet but 120 on Ivacy.
Their website is a little janky and the links to what they say to do in the guides get '404' errors so you have to google it. EX: Finding their server list. They'd didn't even have the server I'm connecting to on the list but then I found it when downloading their OpenWRT files.
What about the desktop app are you not happy with? I haven't really seen any difference in quality between the three I'm using. Nord just gives more in depth options which I really like so when the going gets tough I can use it but for my AppleTVs I liked Ivacy because of the local server which gives me my speed and local channels on my ATT TV app.
I can't comment about disconnects yet. I'll download some 100GB file and see how it goes
I will always recommend a VPN when torrenting. When you don't use one you have a high change of getting notices sent to your ISP and then forwarded to you.
Their are cheap VPNs out there and I can send you a PM with some discount codes. I do not recommend using any free ones and they are just going to sell your information.
Here is a lifetime purchase for Ivacy VPN which has split tunneling so you can enable it for your torrent client only if you wanted. Once you buy it it's good for life. Read the information on the page. It's cheap and it's a one time payment. I purchased this awhile ago.
My experience from my trip to China a few months ago, Nord didn't work, SurfShark connects on shadowsock proto cool but no data, Ivacy said their servers are all blocked (asked their online chat before my trip). Windscribe has some working servers, can stream YouTube on 360p. Seed4Me also has some working servers (but the 'for China ' server didn't work).
Personally, I would not recommend Avast VPN for streaming Disney Plus or any other geo-restricted streaming services because its servers are not optimized for unblocking streaming services. This is why you are facing issues while watching D+.
Providers like Surfshark, PureVPN, Nord, Express, Cyberghost, Ivacy, and IPVanish are far better options to watch Disney+ as they offer dedicated servers for streaming. Right now, i am using Surfshark and Pure to watch Disney+ and they are working perfectly fine.
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.
Nice deal. I'm not competent to say if Ivacy is 100% legit VPN provider but from my experience their app is major downside for me. Windows app. Freezing, not connecting or reconnecting. Still no update even support told that it should be released month ago or so.
Yes. I would be better able to help you if you would let me in on the purpose and region you would want to connect because there are a few factors that you have to understand.
With that said, I have tried quite a few apps and my best experience have been with 1. Ivacy and 2. Express primarily because of Netflix and online shopping.
In terms of anonymity, I do shop a lot from Amazon and AliExpress and as such, even though they're secured through https, I still use a VPN. You can judge it's anonymity through 1. it's protocols, 2. it's IP/DNS leaks if any.
