VeePN is a Panama-based VPN service provider that has an impressive worldwide server network, supports all major devices, and offers top-notch security features. The service promises to enable you fast access to any blocked website from anywhere in the world. Furthermore, considering the fact that you get unlimited traffic and bandwidth on as many as 10 devices, VeePN leaves a very good first impression. After analyzing the service in detail, we bring you our findings in this comprehensive VeePN review.
Whether you are a first-time or experienced VPN user, you will have no problem understanding VeePN’s interface. When you launch the app, you will see an ON/OFF button in the middle of the home screen. Below you will find information on the status of your connection. Your currently selected server is shown at the bottom. If you want to change the server, all you need to do is click on it and chose a different server from a drop-down list. The app allows you to mark your favorite servers so that you can find them more easily later.
You access additional options by clicking on the button in the top left corner. Here you can view your account details, change the app’s settings, upgrade your subscription, and enter the help section. VeePN’s settings include the option to launch the app automatically on system startup. Furthermore, the app allows you to choose the desired protocol and enable or disable the killswitch and DNS leak protection. Overall, the app seems very well organized and easy to navigate. The installation process is simple and only takes a couple of minutes.
Performance And Reliability
VeePN’s server network includes 2,500+ servers from 50 locations in 42 countries. At the moment, there are 1,168 servers in Europe, 1,153 in the Americas, 226 in the Asia Pacific region, 30 in Africa, and 102 in the Middle East and India. Undoubtedly, these are excellent numbers by any standard.
The vast server network should translate to great connection speeds. However, while we tested this service, the speeds were in the average range. This is definitely not one of the fastest VPNs, but it generally delivers acceptable performance when it comes to speed and connection quality. The results of our DNS leak test were quite satisfactory, which means that you do not have to worry that your personal data will be exposed when you use VeePN. We recommend that you keep the killswitch and DNS leak protection enabled at all times.
VeePN is compatible with multiple platforms and devices. It offers apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android and provides VPN extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera browsers. In addition, VeePN works with Apple TV and a wide range of routers. When you install it on your router, you can protect multiple connected devices in your household – and this will still count as a single device within your subscription plan.
As stated previously in our VeePN review, with a single subscription, you can connect up to 10 devices, which is great considering that most VPNs allow you to connect up to 5 devices. In addition to that, VeePN allows you to add up to 100 extra devices for $0.8 per device.
While VeePN generally provides stable connections, it is good to know that you are protected in case your connection with the VPN service suddenly fails. With the killswitch feature enabled, your device will be automatically disconnected from the Internet when your VPN connection drops. This means that your real IP and data are protected from accidental exposure at all times. DNS leak protection is another option you should always keep enabled in order to fully protect your online activity and privacy.
With VeePN, you get to switch between servers without limitations. Moreover, you can select specific server locations within certain countries. VeePN also imposes no limits with regard to data and bandwidth so you can use the service freely without worrying about any data caps.
It is also worth mentioning that VeePN allows P2P file transfer (torrenting). Finally, VeePN can provide you with a personal VeePN server and a dedicated IP as the ultimate online safety tool that guarantees superior speeds.
Security And Privacy
In terms of security, VeePN uses strong and reliable AES-256 encryption and allows you to choose from the following protocols: OpenVPN, IKEv2, and Smart VeePN (TCP and UDP). The last option is VeePN’s own protocol. You can easily switch between protocols or let VeePN automatically detect the best protocol for you. However, we recommend that you use OpenVPN at all times as it is the safest option available on the market.
When registering your account, you only have to input a username, password, and valid email address. VeePN respects your privacy and follows a strict no-logs policy, which means that the company does not store any of your personal information, including browsing history, the data you downloaded and shared, your location, DNS queries, and IP address. The fact that no connection or activity logs are stored means that you do not have to worry that your personal data will be exposed. The usage statistics that VeePN collects cannot be tied to any individual user.
The company behind VeePN is registered in Panama, which is not a “14 Eyes” country and is generally considered to be a VPN-friendly location. Since Panama does not have regulations that could force VPN providers to collect and store data on their users, it was a good decision to base VPN operations in this country.
When it comes to customer support, you can contact VeePN anytime via email or use the feedback form on the company website. The website also features a live chat, which enables you to get help instantly from VeePN’s multi-language support team. However, this option is not available 24/7. The support section on the website covers a broad range of topics that might be of interest to current and potential users. Here you can find instructions on setting up VeePN on your device, as well as frequently asked questions related to the service.
VeePN offers three plans. If you choose the monthly subscription, you will pay $10.99 every month. The one-year subscription costs $69.99, which amounts to $5.83 per month. Finally, you can purchase the 5-year subscription for $99.99, which amounts to only $1.67 per month. The service offers a 7-day free trial and 30-day money-back guarantee.
As far as payment methods are concerned, VeePN provides plenty of options. You can use credit cards, PayPal, several cryptocurrencies, and various other payment processors, including WebMoney and Giropay.
