IPVanish

33 user reviews

IPVanish is a provider of virtual private network (VPN) services to individuals (non-commercial.) As the company name implies, users’ IP address is concealed and online activities cannot be monitored or tracked due to the encryption technology that they utilize. IPVanish promotes its VPN services as a method for bypassing regional censorship, corporate firewalls and other filters and firewalls that are commonly utilized by educational institutions. This company says its services can prevent a practice known as deep packet inspection, whereby Internet service providers monitor internet traffic and limit upload/download speeds. IPVanish does not log user data or activity. They also offer mobile apps to protect users on smartphones and tablets. The mobile app encrypts personal data, preventing others from accessing email message, social media accounts and mobile banking information. Support is available via email. Users can also post a question publicly or browse the existing articles in a knowledge base-type help section. Users have a seven-day money back guarantee on all services. The IPVanish software and mobile app are compatible with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10, Mac 10.10.x, iOS 8.x and 9.1, along with Android 4.x (ICS) and up. Some older operating systems may allow for usage, but it is not guaranteed. IPVanish maintains more than 350 VPN servers in over 60 nations. Services are available worldwide.

“Fast and reliable”
Reviewed

I've had so many issues accessing Netflix with other providers. IP Vanish have done a pretty good job at keeping it available.

No complaints from me!

“Usually works just fine”
Reviewed

My only issue with IPVanish is that I find it very slow at times, thankfully not too often. It usually works just fine.
I'll wait until my contract is finished to see if I'll look for another VPN provider or stay with them

“A fairly good VPN.”
Reviewed

I've been using IPVanish for a few months and it's mostly good. Streaming speed is fast enough, a tad lower than without the VPN. I use it both on my PC and phone, especially when dealing with stuff like my work e-mail or credit card info while purchasing anything online. It's a fairly good app and worth the money.

“Doesn't work the same all around the world”
Reviewed

I'm traveling a lot for my work and I have to use a VPN pretty much all the time. I've been using IPVanish for a few months now and I noticed it's not consistent around the world. For example, it works best when I'm in the USA, but it's either too slow or doesn't work at all in Australia. I've Show more

“A bit slow”
Reviewed

I've got a one-year plan which I'm probably not gonna renew at the end. I'm not using it that much anyway, mostly due to the slower page loading, especially when streaming video. That's basically the reason I got it in the first place, streaming videos from other countries. I don't really need it for anything else.

“Safe web surfing”
Reviewed

IPVanish just makes me feel safe when surfing the web, it just does its job. I've tried various other VPN's but this one turned out to be the most affordable one given all aspects, speed vs. cost ratio. I mostly use it for online gaming and occasional "normal" web surfing, and it's great for its purpose.

“Good idea, slow downloads, no deals for existing customers.”
Reviewed

I want to like IPVanish, I really do. The interface is good and the functionality it provides is robust. It runs on all devices where I need it - phones, computers, Amazon FireTV. But my experience has been hampered by two things.

The first and most important is slow download speeds when it is running. I use Ookla speedtest and Show more

On most occasions brilliant product. But when streaming live sport the loss of speed, from 70 to 20 say, causes a great deal of buffering
