Private VPN Review
PrivateVPN is a VPN based in Sweden, with over 100 servers in 56 countries. Even though you don’t have as many servers and locations as you get from other VPN services, PrivateVPN servers are very fast, as you will see below. We can clearly say that PrivateVPN has the best price/value ratio from all the VPNs we’ve tested.
No Logs Policy
Being based in Sweden, you can expect that PrivateVPN is required by law to keep logs. Actually, that is not the case. Only ISPs (Internet Service Providers) are required by law to keep logs of the user’s activity. Since PrivateVPN is not an ISP, they don’t have to. In conclusion, PrivateVPN is safe for streaming and torrenting.
“Our Swedish privacy laws mean there’s NO traffic logs kept to be seized by governments.
Unlike many other VPN providers, even WE don’t know what you’re doing online.”
Very Fast Servers
When it comes to speed, PrivateVPN delivers. Even we were amazed of how fast PrivateVPN works, compared to other VPNs that are more expensive. Here’s our simple test, on a normal, home based WiFi connection, with VPN:
Privacy and Encryption
Being based in Sweden is not ideal for privacy, but under the Swedish law, PrivateVPN is not required to keep any logs of activity. So, we have to take their word and trust them. Even more, Sweden has one of the most relaxed jurisdiction in Europe when it comes to online copyright.
PrivateVPN uses 2048-bit Encryption With AES-256. It’s the same encryption standard adopted by the U.S. government and the highest level of encryption on the market, even used by government militaries.
Devices and Usability
PrivateVPN is very easy to install and it supports all the popular platforms available today.
Six simultaneous connections are available for each account.
