    The top of the cream ! I've tested a lot of well known vpns (Norvpn, ExpressVpn, Vypr, PureVpn, PIA etc..) and I have been disapointed . Till I subscribe to Mullvad , fast and CLEAN connections (no proxies, no blacklisted ip , no open ports) Speed in Europa are really fast , I love their approach privacy focused , and their support fast and always friendly. It's a little team deeply involved in Internet freedom causes and I like that too. They allow to use (with Linux) WIREGUARD protocol which is (after 5 months of use) faultless , faster than open Vpn and so fluent . It's a real pleasure to use it. Well, Mullvad is for me more intelligent , technically reactive, more effective and have better ethics than all other Vpns that I know

    It would be a perfect VPN if it allowed me to stream Netflix. Other than that, no complaints.

    Mullvad doesn't slow my computer down at all. It's like I'm not even running a VPN.

    Tricky garbage! I bought it because it offered my also my small country - I need access to some pages which are vorbidden from abroad. And guess what - after my payment my country dissapeared! I complained, I wanted my money back, but they just laughed off me. No it is totally useless for me. For 3 years... I'm not recommending!!!

    I like how it works but someone said it’s not really a VPN. Does that mean it’s not safe?
  • Submitted By Charlie Cochran on 09/11/2017
    Generally speaking, it’s a good VPN, but I don’t like that it’s based in the US. Five Eyes anyone??

    Got one word for you – lags. Not the best option, believe me.
