Features

Our IPVanish VPN review 2019 reveals  a great VPN that lets you connect up to 10 devices simultaneously which gives it an edge over other VPNs in this area where most of the VPNs offer around 5 concurrent connections. It works fine for Netflix US but not for BBC or China Firewall. But, this may disappoint Chinese users but not the rest as they perform exceptionally well as a VPN around the globe. Features  overview as reported by IPVanish:
  • Fast Speed
  • Zero traffic logs
  • Unlimited P2P traffic
  • Anonymous torrenting
  • Unlimited server switching
  • Unlimited bandwidth

Speed

IPVanish claims to be the world’s fastest VPN. Their claim is made over 1000+ globally distributed servers in 60+ countries. However, it's not easy for us to say they are the fastest as it depends on tons of factors and may vary from time to time and from user to user but they are certainly fast.Do we think it's fast enough?Yes, it is.

Privacy

IPVanish claims to adopt a strict no log policy.However, an article reads: According to a June 2018 article by TorrentFreak, court documents have shown that IPVanish handed over personal information about a customer to the Department of Homeland Security (HSI) in 2016. The customer was suspected of sharing child pornography on an IRC network.The information, which allowed HSI to identify the customer, consisted of the customer's name, his email address, details of his VPN subscription, his real IP address (Comcast) "as well as dates and times [he] connected to, and disconnected from, the IRC network.”The logging of the customer's IP address and connection timestamps to the IRC service contradicts IPVanish' privacy policy, which states that "IPVanish will never log any traffic or usage of our VPN." In 2017, IPVanish and its parent company was acquired by StackPath, and its founder and CEO, Lance Crosby, claims that "at the time of the acquisition, no logs existed, no logging systems existed and no previous/current/future intent to save logs existed.This raised concerns about their privacy policy but we believe you are good to go with IPVanish considering you are not misusing a VPN service for committing crimes.IPVanish's privacy policy states "IPVanish does not collect, monitor, or log any traffic or use of its Virtual Private Network service, under any circumstances, on any platform."You can browse their privacy policy.

Pricing

Being a world class VPN service, IPVanish is fairly priced but a slight reduction in price may make it more common among the users with low budget. Like other VPN services, it is highly recommended to buy an annual billing plan to save more.

User Friendly

As stated in the overview, IPVanish offers desktop apps for Microsoft Windows, Linux and macOS as well as apps for Android, Windows Phone, iOS, and Fire TV and firmwares for routers. The apps are easy to download, install and UI is eye candy that lets you visualize server selections and connections.

Support

IPVanish being a top VPN provides you with a 24X7 support which can be availed easily via live chat. We tested it and they were really quick to reply within 8 seconds of posting a request. It was great to see that there was no chat queue. We, told them it was just a reply test and they did great and we couldn't prevent our self from hitting the "like conversation" button. Do, we like their Support? Yes, Thumbs Up.
