ibVPN OneClick allows you to connect to the Internet anonymously by using a fake IP, which is also a solution if you need to bypass local rules and region-based restrictions. The tool is very straightforward, so in a couple of clicks you can get connected through it. In this respect, you are prompted to enter your authentication. Luckily, you can let the client find the fastest available server for you or, if you prefer, it is also possible to pick your favorite servers, which are arranged by country.

When you use applications like this one, much of your perception depends on the quality of the VPN services they connect through. Let us take a look of ibVPN, the provider of the services in this case. ibVPN has a middle-sized network of more than 180 servers distributed in all the continents, which allows them to guarantee decent connection speeds. However, your bandwidth can be reduced if the selected server is located far from your current location.

As to protocols, it is good that it gives you a chance to select the one you consider most appropriate for your needs, including OpenVPN, SSTP and L2TP. Likewise, it uses the internationally recognized AES 256-bit encryption system. On top of that, the tool includes a killswitch, which prevents data leaks in case the connection is down.

The service providers guarantee your privacy via a good policy. In this regard, they claim that no logs of your activities are kept. However, you have to provide a name and an email address when you create your account.

Although ibVPN supports using the Smart DNS technology to provide access to geo-restricted streaming services, it does not seem to work all the time, particularly for accessing Netflix contents.

In general, although ibVPN OneClick may not be the best of the choices, it still has some advantages that make it worth considering. The app itself is free but the service is not. Yet, luckily, it can be tried at no cost.
