WASEL Pro is a VPN service offering anonymous surfing and access to geo-restricted sites and services. Even though it has been specifically designed for users connecting from the Persian Gulf, it works from practically anywhere. The app has a straightforward interface that can get you connected with just a click.

The main advantage of WASEL Pro is undoubtedly security. In this respect, it uses highly encrypted connections and supports some of the securest protocols, such as OpenVPN, SSH and L2TP/IPSec. Likewise, it has a built-in kill switch that prevents any IP leaking. Besides, in terms of privacy, it is good that the providers keep no logs of your activities.

The tool is quite effective in bypassing local ISP rules as well as geographical restrictions. In this respect, it can provide you with virtual IPs in more than 20 different geographical locations. This way, it should allow you to use communication services like Skype and Viber. Likewise, you can also access geo-restricted streaming services, including Netflix, Hulu, BBC, iPlayer and Pandora. Moreover, it can be used to add an extra security layer when you are using P2P file sharing protocols, like Torrent.

Although WASEL Pro is certainly not the worst VPN service available, it is not the best either. In the first place, so much security has probably taken its toll on speed. Also, as big as 20 geographical locations may seem, its network is much smaller than those of some competitors.

All in all, WASEL Pro is a VPN service you should consider if you are interested in getting maximum security and privacy. Regrettably, it does not provide high speeds or have a big network of servers. Unlike other similar services, WASEL Pro offers no free connections, except for a short 5-hour trial period. It is too bad the price is not good either, but at least it lets you connect from two different devices with the same account.
