iWASEL allows you to connect to the Internet through a VPN. The client’s interface is quite straightforward and similar to those of other applications of its type. It has four tabs that let you access its different functions. In this regard, the Connect tab shows information about the status of your connection. Likewise, the Account tab lets you enter your account credentials. The Settings tab is where you can change the interface language, let the program select a server automatically or set it to connect at application startup.
The convenience of using one VPN or another mainly depends on the characteristic of the service provided. IWASEL does not seem to have as many servers as other similar programs. Although the real number of servers is not provided, it is known that they have physical servers located in at least France and the US. Yet, you may pretend to be connected from other countries, most of them in Europe and North America.
iWASEL uses two different VPN protocols. One of them is OpenVPN, which is widely used by others due to the strength of the connections it supports and its ability to bypass port-based filters. The other protocol, PPTP, in turn, is said to be risky in terms of privacy protection. Fortunately, the company claims they have strict no-logging policies.
All in all, iWASEL, like any other VPN service, lets you browse the Internet anonymously and avoid various types of restrictions. Although the price is somewhat higher than those of other VPN services, it is good news that all of their plans support unlimited bandwidth. Unfortunately, iWASEL is not the best option as to the geographical distribution of their servers.
