Editors' Review

+

PureVPN bounces your Internet traffic through layers of servers, making it impossible to track or trace and thus greatly enhancing your privacy and security.

Pros

Easy to use: A quick-start guide with FAQs and tutorials explains what PureVPN does and helps you set up your VPN connection (something that used to require a bit of expertise). Confident users can click Skip this Guide.

Anonymous and secure: PureVPN not only anonymizes your network activity but also encrypts it in one of several protocols, with choice of host country. Public Wi-Fi hotspots are much safer with PureVPN, too.

Streaming: You can stream geographically restricted media like Net TV and radio by selecting servers in different host countries.

Split Tunneling: Split Tunneling saves bandwidth by letting you decide which Internet activity to anonymize and which to send through regular channels.

Cons

Drivers: PureVPN may replace existing TAP drivers with its own, which could cause issues with existing software.

Bottom Line

PureVPN lets you protect yourself against hackers and snoops, surf in total anonymity, access restricted content, and communicate securely.

"VPN impossible slow; service poor; refund policy unfair"

November 08, 2014  |  By forsure31

 |  Version: PureVPN 4.0.0.3

Pros

Wide range of servers worldwide.

Cons

Their OpenVPN protocol can dramatically slow down your Internet connection, which makes it pretty much useless. Talking to technical support is like talking to a robot. They must use an automated service because you are asked to do the same thing over and over again, with no results. If you ask for a refund because you cannot use the service, they tell you that your 3-day trial period has expired -- even though they are the ones who dragged out the process for longer than three days. These are unethical business practices.

Summary

Shop around for another VPN. There are many more to choose from -- especially those with longer trial periods. Also, consider very strongly whether you want to deal with an overseas company; when you have a problem with a foreign entity, it is very difficult to take legal action to get your money back.
