Hey there, everybody it’s, ken hope you’re doing well. So i just emerged from the lab and before i clean the stench of testing multiple vpns off of me, i’m, going to give you my review of ipvanish that’s, the sound of magic and things disappearing because of the vanishing You know ipvanish and when i’m in the lab, with my questionable hygiene habits, you know i’m, always looking to make sure that every vpn is good enough for you.
What makes for a good vpn? Well, it’s got to stack up against the mount rushmore of vpn awesomeness. What is that good question? Well, it all has to do with four things that i look for, that are the most important base, things that you need in a good vpn and no matter what the verdict may be check the description for links to everything that i talk about today, as well As any coupon codes or discounts, i have to save you money, because saving money is awesome.
First thing i look for is the ease of use. How compatible is the service with your os and how many os’s? Is it compatible with what’s? The customer support like if you have a problem, is the app easy to use.
Number two is the security? Is it solid? What are the features? What are they doing to protect your data? Keep you private, keep you safe and make sure that when you are using your good vpn, it is done safely and securely number three performance.
Is it fast? What can you do with the vpn? What can’t, you do with the vpn and why and lastly value? Are you getting bang for your buck? Do they have free trials to test the service out? If you do, is there a money back guarantee? What are they doing to make sure that they show appreciation to you, the customer, so when it comes to number one, how easy it is to use they’re compatible with a multitude of os’s? The customer support is great.
I don’t think i waited more than a minute to hear back from somebody just to test it out and see what the interaction is like. The app is really easy to use. So if you’re looking for something that’s good for dipping your toe in the vpn water, so to speak, and you just want to make sure that the experience is going to be as pleasant as possible, ipvanish really really fit.
The mark there, as far as security is concerned, they use 256-bit aes encryption, which those of you in the know, or not it’s virtually unbreakable. So you know you don ‘ T have to worry about that.
It has dns leak prevention. So your real ip location is not going to be revealed to websites and additionally, they have an automatic kill switch which makes sure your ip address. Isn’t accidentally exposed in case of a drop connection with the vpn server and even though they’re becoming more standard.
I was a little disappointed to discover that it doesn’t work with mac os and with windows. Ipvanish does not have a built-in ad blocker, however, you can use third-party ad blockers while connected to the ipvanish servers.
They are unfortunately not able to get past the great firewall of china. So keep that in mind if it is important to you and for those of you who may be wondering about the issues that ipvenish had in the past, with their no log policy that’s, not an issue anymore.
Many years ago they were purchased by stackpath, and now they do not keep any logs guaranteed performance wise. I found them to be relatively fast too, when it comes to connecting with a vpn. There is a normal amount of speed loss that occurs, but if you’re using a good vpn, it should not be noticeable.
So with ipvanish i found that their standards for speed were pretty consistent and they did a pretty good job. There’s very little latency there. So that means, of course they’re good for torrenting. So you know you can do that safely with your peer-to-peer connections streaming wise.
You know that the mark of a really good vpn is its ability to bypass the geo restrictions and vpn blocks that i have mentioned ad nauseam in previous videos, because really it is the crux of what makes a vpn effective its ability to be able to bypass The blocks that open up content for you, wherever you may go and from personal experience, hbo go to zone espn and other services did relatively well with the exception of bbc iplayer and abc.
com, which i had no success connecting to. So it was a little frustrating for streaming because it couldn’t bypass all the vpn block for netflix customers. I got really fast connections and really awesome streaming on the las vegas, dallas and chicago servers in the us, and they have this cool feature where they give.
You, like. A mini thumb drives worth of storage space on the cloud about 250 gigabytes, which you know you can do. A pretty good amount of damage. Watch a few seats tv depending upon the compression, which is a nice added bonus and a really good value.
And are you getting your money’s worth with ipvanish? Well, they have a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you get plenty of time to try them out. They do have a seven-day free trial only for users who sign up using its ios app.
So if you don’t have ios, you’re, not going to be able to take advantage of a free version, but with the 30 day money back guarantee, you might be able to work around that. If you’re, not satisfied with it, for whatever reason, so all in all, when it comes to the mount rushmore of vpn awesomeness, i would have to say that ipvanish actually does a pretty good job for whatever shortcomings i may have highlighted during this Review there are many other things that make up for it and, overall, i would say they are a good vpn.
That said, there are a few deficiencies that i pointed out and i feel like the two recommendations that i’m about to give will fill in wherever ipvanish may not meet all of the marks and those two are express, ppn and nordvpn and depending Upon your situation will determine which of these is a better fit for you, and of course, i will include links to both of them in the description with any deals, discounts or coupon codes that you’re not going to find on the website, so Feel free to take advantage of them because i love to save you guys money.
Even though i’ve, never met you, it just feels good. The first top choice is expressvpn. It’s, no secret that i love expressvpn. They’re, the best vpn overall. When i go to the lab, i am continually impressed by how express comes out on top in head to head speed tests express is also the best for torrenting and unblocking streaming services such as netflix disney plus amazon, prime hulu, bbc, iplayer and hundreds of others.
So the issues that i had with ipvanish as far as the streaming was concerned – which i was really disappointed with express, is not going to do that they are going to come through for you big time and they’re going to do it with Military-Grade encryption to keep you safe and completely anonymous you don’t have to worry about any bandwidth limits.
Don’t expect to be penalized for downloading or streaming too much express also allows you to use its app on up to five different devices simultaneously and speaking of that app, they ‘ Ve won awards for it.
Congratulations! Everybody because it’s, so easy to use, and you know that number one on the mount rushmore of vpn awesomeness is ease of use, so that’s. One thing about express it’s, fantastic. If you’ve never used a vpn before they’re, a great choice for you, dipping your toe in the water to experience all the things that a good vpn can offer.
Expressvpn support is some of the best in the industry. They’ve got 24 7 live chat as well as a 30 day. No questions asked money back guarantee and if you decide to go with them of course check the description, i will have a link to them there, as well as any promotions or discounts.
I can find to get you the best deal possible because ken loves you. So if you’re, just looking for the best vpn overall, even a step above ipvanish go with expressvpn. Second, top choice would be nordvpn, and this is a choice for people who really value security and anonymity more than anything else, because, unlike other vpns, that only take your ip address and mask it from one location nordvpn does that twice your ip address is doubly secure.
You get extra protection for everything you’re. Doing no matter where you are nordvpn also allows you to use their apps on one more device in express. So you get six as opposed to five and just like express they’re, easy to use.
The support is excellent and for torrenting or unblocking the streaming sites they’re, really fantastic as well. So if you’re, valuing security and anonymity, more than anything else, you don’t mind sacrificing some speed and performance to save a few dollars over expressvpn then go with nordvpn and of course, i will put links to both of them.
In the description, as well as the coupon codes and discounts to save you guys money, because i really do care even though i’ve, never met you so feel free to take advantage of them. If you like. Thank you all so much for watching head down to the comments.
