VPN Unlimited Review - UPDATED Sep. 2017
VPN Unlimited is a rather affordable VPN solution brought to you by KeepSolid. Our tests showed that it does not only offer high-quality service but also allows you to enjoy the benefits of numerous add-ons we have not encountered in many VPN providers. Get a full sense of what this VPN service has to offer in this comprehensive VPN Unlimited review.
In order to get VPN Unlimited software running on your device, you need to complete 4 extremely simple steps. You need to create and verify your account, download the software, and install it. The installation process is completed in only a couple of clicks, with the wizard making it ultimately smooth and quick.
We were impressed by the fact that VPN Unlimited offers custom clients for different platforms, guaranteeing great user experience on every device. The design is characterized by great functionality, with a clean and modern look. The features are neatly categorized and easily accessible. We are not big fans of the gray-on-gray solution, but the font is large enough and there are no navigation issues.
Performance And Reliability
Unlimited VPN boasts an impressive network of servers, with over 1000 servers in more than 70 locations all over the world. Apart from the usual locations, such as Honk Kong, Singapore, the US, and the UK, the provider also operates servers in smaller European countries and the Pacific, as well as Africa. Such distribution guarantees that you can access any content you wish, wherever you are.
Although not as fast as some of the most renowned and more expensive VPN services, Unlimited VPN allows you to enjoy above-average speeds most of the time, with great increases in latency only when connected to the farthest servers. With a great selection of high-speed and specialized servers, you can browse, download, and torrent with ease, without any noticeable impacts on the speed and performance of your device. You can stream any geo-restricted content without annoying buffering issues. During our tests, we detected no IP or DNS leaks. The performance was excellent and user experience is further improved with unlimited bandwidth and speed.
VPN Unlimited supports all the most popular platforms and operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android, Linux, Windows Phone, and Apple TV. It also offers browser extensions for users who only wish to encrypt their browser traffic. Browser extensions are available for Chrome and Firefox.
No matter which subscription plan you choose, you can set up and use VPN Unlimited on up to 5 devices. For users who wish to protect a larger number of devices with a single account, this provider offers the possibility to purchase a plan extension for less than $0.99 a month and use the software on up to 15 devices.
VPN Unlimited brings you a number of security features. It protects you from malware, features ad block, and prevents tracking. This is not something you can find in most VPN providers out there and we applaud the company for its efforts.
Another unique option offered by this provider is the possibility to purchase plan extensions that bring you even greater security. These include a personal static IP, personal VPN server, VPN for teams and family with 24/7 support and personal domain, and protection for up to 15 devices.
Torrenting is allowed, with special servers conveniently labeled with a Torrent mark. However, the company does state that these should not be used for any illegal activities and that there may be consequences for such actions.
The company also offers additional services that improve protection and user experience. You can opt for its private browser, WiFi hotspot protector, network analysis and testing tools, WiFi photo sharing app for iOS, and even a roadmap planner and to-do checklist for calendar planning.
Although the provider offers an impressive level of protection and security, we have to mention that some users reported detecting WebRTC leaks. This problem can be solved manually on Chrome and Firefox browsers.
Security And Privacy
VPN Unlimited uses OpenVPN protocol on Android and Windows, with AES 128-bit and AES 256-bit encryption. IPSec IKEv1 protocol is used on Mac and iOS, with AES 128-bit encryption. For even greater security, the provider offers an additional encryption layer, disables tracking, and brings you a range of useful security features.
As far as anonymity is concerned, it is good to know that no logs of your activity are kept. However, the company reserves the right to keep logs of connection times, connection type, device type, and similar non-personal data, but this should not impact your privacy. Payments via BitCoin allow you to avoid sharing any of your personal information.
While researching for this VPN Unlimited review, we were thoroughly satisfied with the way the company has handled the matter of user support. You have as many as five different options at your disposal. You can get in touch with the knowledgeable staff through live chat, although we have to stress that the operators are not available 24/7.
Another way to reach the staff is via a contact form or directly via email. It usually takes up to 60 minutes to get a simple and useful answer and it rarely takes the staff more than a couple hours to respond.
If you are not in a hurry and want to find answers to your questions yourself, you can stop by the extensive FAQ section. The questions and answers are conveniently divided into 5 categories and the search field makes browsing even easier. The Support section also includes numerous useful manuals.
With VPN Unlimited, you can choose between 3 subscription packages that differ only in respect to the length of the subscription period. The Economy plan is a monthly plan that costs $6.99 per month. The Professional plan brings you a year of VPN protection. It is billed annually and costs only $3.33 per month. The Infinity plan brings you a lifetime of protection (100 years) and costs $499.99. However, the company often offers discounts on this plan, so you can get it for only $149.99. The company also offers additional plans users can access after downloading the software, ranging from only 7 days to infinity (that is, 100 years).
VPN Unlimited offers a free 7-day trial, allowing you to test the software before purchasing. It also offers a 7-day money back guarantee, so if you are not satisfied with the service, you can get a full refund within the first week of use. Payment options include credit cards, Amazon, PayPal, and gift cards, as well as BitCoin.
