Security features

IvacyVPN offers many various features that can help the user in multiple situations. We did review every feature and explained to you shortly that you could better understand how to use them. Below you can find a brief explanation of each VPN feature with examples of how it could be adapted to your everyday life.

ivacyvpn security features

Internet Kill Switch

This feature turns off the internet connection in that case when your internet connection to the VPN server fails. For example, if you are torrenting and accidentally your computer lost the encrypted connection with a VPN server, it will turn off the internet to compromise your identity to your ISP (internet service provider). It’s like an automatic emergency button, which will encourage the privacy of your internet presence.

Dedicated IP

Dedicates IP address is an excellent feature for small business companies. It adds extra security when you need to connect to your company accounts (CRM system, email server, update website, etc.). For example, if an external IP blacklists your access to your company servers, you can add to your white list IP of dedicated IP and connect to it on the go, from public wi-fi hotspots, airports, and so on. Also, this function is great for banking when you are abroad. By using a VPN with a dedicated IP address, your bank will never block your account to prevent cyberattacks and money laundry.

Split Tunneling

IvacyVPN is one of the first company which has offered a split tunneling feature to their customers. It is a feature that allows you to choose which traffic should go throughout a VPN server and which one via the local LAN network. In that case, you can unblock foreign content and get unbanned in a local content market. For example, if you live in the United States, you and you will be using a VPN server located in Japan, so in that case, you will not be able to watch the U.S. Netflix. It is because of Netflix’s geo-blocking algorithms. It will see you as japan user and won’t let you watch it.

IPv6 Leak Protection

IPV6 stands for Internet Protocol version 6. It is the most popular IP protocol in the world. IvacyVPN offers the IPv6 Leak Protection feature, which will disable IPv6 traffic leakage while you are connected to the VPN. IPv6 is more advanced technology than IPv4, but still, it has many security issues. For example, it can leak your online IP and let third parties keep track of your activities.

Secure DNS

Secure DNS encourages that DNS requests (IP address associated with that URL) from the internet service providers (ISP) DNS servers will be relieved. The usage of a simple VPN does not encourage the prevention of DNS leakage. So it means that some parts of the traffic can pass through an encryption tunnel and might be exposed. So IvacyVPN also encrypts that insecure channel for maximum privacy.

Multiple Protocols

IvacyVPN supports all the major encryption protocols, including TCP, UDP, L2TP, and IKEV. Every protocol might be used in different cases. Some of them are suitable for online streaming (fast internet connection), and some of them are suitable for banking or shopping (highest encryption rate). Note that encryption might cut your internet speed due to its natural processes.

DDoS Protection

Hackers and cybercriminals are often using DDOS attacks to fluid your PC with multiple queries from different servers. They are doing it in purpose to interrupt the fluent server activity. IvacyVPN has an integrated function to avoid such attacks and protect your PC.

Multi Logins

The good news is that IvacyVPN supports up to 5 different devices, so it is excellent for family members or small business companies. No matter what devices you are using, it can handle it correctly. For example you want to watch Netflix, but your son wants to stream Hulu on his tablet PC. You can do it with one IvacyVPN account.

Secure Downloading

Also, it is worth to mention that IvacyVPN has an integrated real-time antivirus and antimalware protection. You can forget about the heavyweight or outdated antivirus software. It will catch all the suspicions files you are downloading from the internet.

No-Log policy

Another great thing is that IvacyVPN does not log your browsing data. There are many VPN on the market, and many of them do it. Later on, they sell it to the advertising agencies or data traders. Especially the free VPN providers, like HolaVPN does it. So be aware of untruthful free VPN service providers and always check the no-logging policy page before making a purchase.

Software applications

IvacyVPN is supported by all the conventional operating systems: Windows, iOS, Android, Mac. Also, it has extensions for Google Chrome and Firefox browsers.

A VPN also can be compatible with other devices: Linux, Blackberry, Smart, TV Open Elec, Routers, Gaming consoles (Xbox, ps3, and ps4) and Kodi.

ivacyvpn apps

We did try to configure our PS4 via MAC and unblock geo-locked games. It worked like a charm without any problems.
Almost every device can be covered at your home or office by IvacyVPN. It is very comfortable because you don’t need to buy two or three different VPN to protect your privacy.

User interface

The interface of the application looks modern and intuitive. Easy navigation and eye-pleasant icons make the whole application excellent. Of course, some of you might not love the darker interfaces, but to our eyes, it looks quite good.

The mobile version of the IvacyVPN applications looks familiar to the desktop version. It also works excellent on Android and iPhone smartphones.

Support

What considers support, it reacts fast and tries to solve problems quickly. We did imitate some issues with the speed of the VPN, and the staff did all they could. Of course, whey could not fix the problem because there was no issue with the speed. We were playing them around to see how the live chat support works. Overall, the staff was very confident and polite.

ivacyvpn support

There are six major support types from live chat to technical guides. All the information is detailed written and with illustrations, so it will be comfortable even for tech dummies to understand.

  • 24/7 live chat
  • Email support
  • Beginners Guide
  • FAQs
  • Technical Tutorials
  • Setup Guide

We rated the support at a high rate and were pleasantly surprised. We can compare the support with the competitors and can say that IvacyVPN support is at a very high level. Actually, we did not expect it from them.

Price

The pricing of IvacyVPN is one of the lowest on the market. For the plans for 2 or 3 years, you can get discounts from 66 up to 77 percent. We think that is one of the best quality and price ration on the VPN market.
There is the table below this paragraph, where you can see all the plans for the services.

Period Price/Month Price/year

1 Month

$9.95

$119.4

1 Year

$3.33 (off 66%)

$40

Final thoughts

Overall, IvacyVPN is an excellent VPN for low prices. It can offer many various security features and raise your privacy and security level to the top. Of course, IvacyVPN, like every other VPN, slightly reduces internet speed, but it is normal because of the encryption processes. Also, the speed can drop if you will connect to the server, which far away from your real location. The ping will go longer, so it is normal. VPN is compatible with the most popular operating systems, and it can handle up to five devices at the same time. The user interface, support, and prices are just great. In our opinion, it is a severe competitor to VPN services like ExpressVPN or NordVPN.
