Editors' Review

iVPN for Android provides an easy and affordable way to create a secure connection to the Internet and guard your privacy.

Pros

Guards your privacy: IVPN said it doesn't log an account's usage data or keep connection logs. It does keep your email and, depending on how you purchase the service, payment information. The independent VPN testing website That One Privacy Site gives iVPN solid scores for its logging and privacy practices.

Be aware that using a VPN does not guarantee your Internet activities will be private. The Internet is full of stories about shady VPN providers making promises they don't always keep. If you pick a trustworthy VPN, however, you can keep your communications secure over a public network, get around geoblocking, and avoid Internet filtering and censorship.

Easy to use: The app lets you subscribe and connect, all in one place. You don't need to subscribe to one service and use another app to join the service. And while the app hides much of the complexity from you, it offers a handful of advanced settings, including the ability to set which apps use the VPN and which don't.

A handful of affordable subscription choices: iVPN lets you sign up for a month for $15, three months for $40, and a year for $100. It also gives you a three-day free trial to see if you like the service before you pay. You can use one subscription for five simultaneous connections. These aren't the cheapest prices we've seen, in part because the company closed down its affiliates program. While an affiliates program can sometimes get you a discount, it can also support shady activities.

A baker's dozen of server locations: iVPN has servers in more than a dozen locations, mostly located in North America and Europe, with one in Hong Kong. The server list displays latency for each server and lets you create a list of favorites if you always use ones for speed or to bypass geo-restrictions.

Encrypted and private: The iVPN app uses the industry-standard AES-256 to encrypt data and OpenVPN to create a private network. Interestingly, the company makes it easy to use another client (like OpenVPN app for Android) to connect to its VPN service by providing OpenVPN config files.

Cons

Servers mainly in North America and Europe: If you are looking to connect to a server outside of the Northern hemisphere or Asia, you may need to consider another VPN app.

Bottom Line

With the iVPN app for Android, you can create a secure connection over a public network that encrypts your data and protects your privacy.
