Review

SecureVPN is intended to safeguard your privacy, give you access to blocked services and protect your data. The client has a compact and straightforward interface. Most of the times, it works with just pressing a button. It also lets you pick your favorite location from the list.

As there are so similar services around, let us examine what benefits and drawbacks we can get from SecureVPN. In this respect, one of the first thing to look at is speed. SecureVPN seems fast enough to play online videos in real time without lags, which is good. Likewise, the connection was stable all the time and there were no interruptions.

Another important aspect is the size of their server network. In this case, it does not seem to have a large network as it offers just a few locations, which contrasts with the long lists supported by other VPN services.

It is also very important to consider security. Although their website claims they are using top encryption standards, they do not say exactly what kind. However, it is good that connections are based on the OpenVPN protocol, which is probably the best of its type. Regrettably, though, it does not support any other VPN protocol.

In terms of privacy, good news is that the tool comes with a built-in kill switch, which should end your session automatically in the event of a security breach. Still, there are reports of this VPN leaking your IP to DNS servers. Unfortunately, they do keep logs of your internal and external IPs, and there is always the possibility that they disclose information to the US government. more
