Global VPN is a client application used to connect to the Internet through a virtual private network. The idea behind using such a service is to protect your privacy, bypass local rules and access restricted contents. The client certainly looks like many other similar applications and is characterized by the simplicity of its usage. In this respect, I liked the possibility of selecting the desired country while receiving information about how fast the connection would be in terms of ping times.
The client is powered by FlowVPN, and, in many respects, the user’s perception depends on the quality of the VPN service provided, so let us take a look at what they have to offer. Luckily, there is a relatively wide network of servers located in various countries.
In terms of security, it is excellent that various protocols, like OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP, IKEv2, are supported. However, it is not so good that the encryption algorithm is AES-128, instead of AES-256, which is more secure. Regrettably, it seems there is no killswitch to prevent data leaks. As to privacy, they claim that no logs of your activities are kept.
All in all, Global VPN is a convenient app that allows you to connect to the Internet more freely, securely and privately. The product is free but there are in-app purchases related to purchasing the required VPN services. Luckily, they are free to try.
