IPVanish is loging a part of users browsing data, so it is not very good

IPVanish VPN does not log user activity, however, the VPN service is based in the US and thus subject to search warrants and National Security Letters. IPVanish VPN uses the same data encryption techniques using the AES-256 protocol, including, some platforms are limited to AES-128. Users also are provided with a kill switch option which shut off all a system’s internet activity once the connection to the VPN is lost.

The speed and Performance rate are quite good according to the test results

Compared to other VPN services, IPVanish VPN had one of the lowest average latency scores (a delay in connecting to a website. The data to our system was transferred at a rate of about 45 megabits per second, which is also relatively slow – the drop of 28%. The data was uploaded at an average of about 18 megabits per seconds. However, what we really liked is that the VPN service did not drop a connection, or we needed to reconnect the service. All in one, we can say that the performance rates are below the average but it had a very steady connection without a necessity to reconnect.

User interface

The user interface is dark and ominous-looking. Users can access the feedback and configuration details thought the interface. The interface also can be resized.

Our opinion: A reliable and a little bit pricy VPN

IPVanish VPN offers users an excellent software for all devices including PCs, Macs, Android smartphones tablets, iPhones, iPads and Amazon Fire TVs, it also could be set up to other platforms, such as Linux machines, Windows Phones or Kodi. IPVanish VPN has one of the greatest assortments of server locations from Albania to Vietnam that allows users to choose the most efficient server connection. When it comes to downsides, IPVanish VPN can be a little bit slow to get going. To sum up, it is a great VPN service that offers reliable protection, and a full feature set. However, it is relatively expensive and is based in the US that might turn off some customers due to the US law regulations.
