VPN4ALL-Unlimited INTRODUCTION

VPN4ALL is one of the best premium VPN service providers out there, with a full 30-day 100% money back guarantee should their service fail to work to your satisfaction. This is a top-notch VPN service with an easy-to-use VPN software for Windows & Mac and VPN apps for iOS and Android, with many features and an extensive worldwide server network.

The free trial version is available; it offers the safe features as the premium version but is limited by number of server locations and bandwidth allowance.
VPN4ALL-Unlim provides the OpenVPN standard with military-grade (AES 256bit) encryption, and a slick software application at the low-end of the market price range. VPN4ALL-Unlim has a large number of servers including those in the USA, Canada, UK, Central Europe, Asia and some well-placed offshore servers.
The VPN4ALL software and apps have many features and are simple to setup and use. Their Privacy Policy is very good, and because the VPN4ALL server network is managed from the Seychelles, they don’t have to log or monitor user activities!
We tested this service for its encryption and found that their VPN connections are in fact encrypted. The service also provides Clam antivirus, antimalware and other add-ons as additional protection from their servers.

Review Summary

VPN4ALL-Unlim PROS:
• Immediate order approval (don’t need to wait for hours to have your VPN account activated!)
• Inexpensive for what is provided
• Truly Unlimited bandwidth – no fair-use policy or other nonsense the other VPNs have
• Unlimited & Free switching between servers, locations and IPs
• Fast servers – with good connection speeds (considering that it’s OpenVPN)
• Extensive server network with many offshore servers – suitable for torrents
• A dedicated IP is offered with each subscription – for free!
• Some really cool features and options in software:
• No need to login at each restart of the application – more like an antivirus software – just runs in the background
• Blocks your internet if the underlying connection goes down so as not to reveal your local IP
• Can use your email client – SMTP & POP3
• Automatically can chose the fastest server with the lowest latency or a favorite server
• Prevent Deep Packet Inspection by your ISP (and hide your VPN traffic from third parties)
• Change your new IP address on the fly
• Excellent privacy policy – Offshore jurisdiction provides real security in our view
• Good and attentive support
• Free Trial available
• 30 days MoneyBack guarantee
• Works in China and Dubai (we tested, it works!)

VPN4ALL-Unlim CONS:
• No servers in Oz
• Secure OpenVPN connections are generally slower than PPTP and IPSec
• No phone support

Full Review

From Order to Installation: ★★★★★ 

The order process is pretty straightforward: Go to the VPN4ALL’s Plans & Pricing page -> Select a Plan that suits you best -> Decide for how many months you want to pay in advance (you can get up to 30% off) -> Decide whether you need the Extras or not -> Proceed with payment.
As of 2014, the VPN4ALL plans differ by bandwidth allowance: You can choose between 50Gb per month and Unlimited bandwidth, which is very handy for those users who don’t intend to use a VPN for torrents or lots of streaming.

With VPN4ALL your account is up and running within minutes if you pay by credit card or PayPal. I received my license number just a few seconds after my checkout and was able to connect with VPN4ALL a few minutes later.

VPN4ALL utilizes its own electronic download for the executable application. It runs quickly and there were no problems during the execution:

vpn4all-review

Then install:

vpn4all-review

If you are located in China, Dubai, Oman or other location where government blocks VPNs, select the “I’m behind a highly restrictive firewall” option before finishing the installation.

When installation is finished, the software will show you the Activation screen. Enter your license number you must have received by email:

vpn4all-review

You activate the application with your license number and then can create login credentials just for the members’ area. The login credential is just for the members’ area and the software no longer requests any other credentials, just like antivirus. I like that a lot.

VPN4ALL provides you with a convenient icon in your Windows task-bar. From this icon you can manage your VPN4ALL software: open and close it, hide it into the system tray as well as connect and disconnect the VPN.

Software/GUI: ★★★★★ 

Once you activate your VPN4ALL software with the license number, you don’t have to do it again. I like the fact that with VPN4ALL my software credentials are not the same as my VPN4ALL account credentials. And I don’t have to deal with login credentials every time I start the software.

After starting the software:

vpn4all-review

You get a very slick VPN software (looks the same on Windows & Mac) that has many cool features and options. From the Options menu in the VPN4ALL software, you can change your VPN settings, manage your VPN4ALL account, update software version or get help through the support desk:

vpn4all-review

This is the first VPN software that we have tested that is not built for a techie but for the consumer.
To connect to VPN4ALL, select a server location:

Then click Connect:

Allow the software to establish a secure VPN connection, which can take a few seconds. When the LED status indicator turns solid-green, you are securely connected.

The software lets you know your new IP address and the server location and from this application, you can change country servers:

Click “X” to close the main screen of your VPN4ALL software into the system tray or click “_” to minimize it, and proceed with your Internet activities. You can reopen the main screen any time by clicking on the VPN4ALL icon in the system tray.

You can make a specific server a favorite and have the software automatically start up and connect to your favorite server location on reboot of your computer, or switch to the fastest server automatically (server with a green lightning mark signifies speed) without having to hunt for the fastest (lowest latency server).

You can also set up a dedicated / fixed IP on a particular server – very handy if you use PayPal or credit cards online, and don’t want your PayPal account or card blocked when you travel and use those from a foreign IP address.

VPN4ALL is the only service that we have seen with this important feature. If you are using a dynamic IP with PayPal, the chances are that sooner or later your PayPal account will be frozen because PayPal and credit card companies want to see the same IP to determine that it’s really you (misplaced transparency).

To designate your favorite or anchor IP (fixed IP for use with PayPal):

A star determines your favorite server – an anchor designates the fixed IP.

If you change countries it provides the new IP as well as your local IP so you can see the difference immediately.

Another really useful feature is that if the underlying connection fails, the software continues to transmit in encrypted mode and lets you know that the connection is failing by turning red both in the application and in the system tray. At the same time the software blocks the Internet completely. This is very useful for those times your ISP goes down and you are on a site or application that you don’t want to be logged onto your own IP, so at least then you can close any applications that you don’t want seeing your underlying IP.

Updates: VPN4ALL provides automated software version updates

Ease of Use: ★★★★★ 

The VPN4ALL service and software is extremely easy to use and convenient with excellent features. It is the first VPN product we have seen that does not look like a beta product. It is by far the easiest to use that also has substantial features.

Features: ★★★★★ 

VPN4ALL has many excellent features including:

- Easy to select server location per country and city
- Easy to choose a favorite server automatically and on startup
- Easy to choose the fastest server worldwide with the lowest latency automatically
- Ability to set up a fixed IP for use with credit card merchants and PayPal
- Easy to change your new IP address, without disconnecting your VPN
- Hide your VPN traffic from your ISP – with Deep Packet Inspection Shield
- Various security features that enhance security of a VPN solution
- Request support directly from your VPN4ALL software

VPN4ALL blocks your internet if the connection fails, thereby not revealing your IP. One of my favorite features is NO login. Like antivirus, this application registers your license number once and after that its click and forget. You could conceivably choose a favorite server and it will connect automatically on startup and you can forget about it. Your VPN would be on 7×24 like antivirus and you don’t have to deal with it.

Server Network: Location, Availability & Speed: ★★★★☆ 

VPN4ALL has a network of servers in over 80 locations.

As of 2014, VPN4ALL has servers in the USA, Sweden, Russia, Panama, Luxembourg, Italy, Germany, Denmark, UK, Spain, Romania, Sweden, Lithuania, Ireland, France, Czech, Turkey, Singapore, Portugal, Netherlands, Latvia, Hungary, Finland, Canada, Switzerland, Seychelles, Poland, Moldova, Japan, Hong Kong, Estonia, Belgium.

The offshore servers are in locations not far from the major USA, European and Asian centers. Overall this is the best server network we have tested so far. It provides both servers in large jurisdictions and offshore servers, with low latency reach of major centers.
All the servers we tested are equal to or better to competing VPN networks.

Generally the VPN4ALL servers are fast with low latency.

The VPN4ALL server network is managed from the Seychelles, an offshore jurisdiction. This means that court orders from European, USA or Asian governments will not get very far and you don’t have to rely on the VPN provider for whether or not they will withstand against government pressure. Most won’t – believe me. They will save their skin before they even think of yours. So if you want true security, make sure the company providing you with security service is located offshore. Even if you have nothing to hide, when servers are opened by court orders, all the data can be misused and appropriated and the unforeseen generally arises. It’s best to avoid VPN server networks controlled by European or USA companies for this very reason.

As an offshore provider, VPN4ALL provides real hardened server network security as well as jurisdictional security – very few VPN services meet that requirement.

Also this service provides Clam antivirus, antimalware, anti phishing and firewalls as a second layer of protection at their servers. They claim this reduces malware attacks on your computer – Windows, Mac and Linux alike.

Example server Ping time: VPN4ALL Germany, Frankfurt server to New York – 106 ms ping time

vpn4all-review

Without VPN4ALL the ping time was 115ms, so there was no latency (actually negative latency) on this server test at 6.30PM EST. This is very fast crossing the Atlantic.

Within Europe, the latency was 70ms or less. This is the Ping test to Madrid from Frankfurt:

vpn4all-review

From Costa Rica, an off shore server to Florida, the Ping test is faster than most round trips to Europe of most networks we have tested:

vpn4all-review

This means that Americans can easily use the Costa Rica server as an exit server. Europeans can use the Bulgarian or Latvian or Russian servers and Asians can use the Middle East server or HK server. This mix of off shore and major center servers is ideal.

Presale Support to Product Help & Support: ★★★★★ 

All my (stupid and not so, but purposely annoying) pre-sale questions were answered within one hour of their submission through the VPN4ALL’s support ticket system.

All post-sale support is done by email or through the support ticket system as well. Even though there is a (working) phone number available for VPN4ALL, they provide no support by phone.

The VPN4ALL support team is also available through live chat, however they can only address a limited scope of technical and billing issues, referring you to the ticket system should a complex issue arise.

VPN4ALL also provides remote support (through TeamViewer) to fix any technical problems in real time.

The email responses were very quick, helpful and comprehensive. Their stated response time is within 12 hours but I had email responses within an hour and sometimes within minutes. Overall, this is excellent support.

Scope of Protection:

Protocols: ★★★★☆ 

Utilizing standard OpenVPN protocols, VPN4ALL changes your local IP, removes packet headers and provides you with a secure anonymous IP which means that all your packets will be randomly mixed up with other people’s packets on server exit. This is the best server exit security.

Protocols: OpenVPN

VPN4ALL also supports port forwarding.

Encryption: ★★★★★ 

Encryption Strength Specified: AES 256bit

We tested this service for encryption and found that the packets are indeed encrypted as advertised. (Some services claim encryption but are not – they are just proxies)

Privacy: ★★★★★ 

VPN4ALL Privacy Policy states that:

• We do not collect or save any personal information.
• We do not collect or save logs on your Internet activities.
• We do not censor or monitor your Internet activities.
• We do not censor or monitor your emails.
• We do not keep backup copies of your emails.
• We do not cache any data about your activities.
• We do not log any user activity (sites visited, DNS lookups, emails etc.)

Further they state: “We are located in a jurisdiction where Internet logs, personal information, account data and all client information is not required to be logged or cached, therefore any requests by law enforcement can be met without providing any information about clients or their data. Even a court order would not provide any personal data about subscribers.”

And: “All Web Broadcasting Ltd. exit servers contain no information on them whatsoever. Their operating systems are disabled except for those enabled modules necessary for transfer of data.”

This is exactly what we want to read but the most significant plus is that the service is off shore so that I don’t have to concern myself with whether they comply with what they write in the privacy policy.

Many users would prefer to have a service in their home country but VPN is the one service where you want to avoid just that. The further the jurisdiction from your home country the less likely snoopers and government agencies will be able to access the service’s records or force them to log and cache (notwithstanding their privacy policy). You can get perfectly good service and attention from out of country services and the security is actually far securer than similar services in cooperative jurisdictions. Why? Because once agencies start to nose around into the data of servers, they don’t just stop at looking at what they purportedly received a court order for, they look at everything and that may include tax issues or expense reporting or other technicalities that can be used to create the basis for more court orders. So the rule of thumb is stay off shore with VPN services for absolute privacy and security.

    Fantastic vpn service! I checked encryption with Wireshark on all servers and especially on US servers – connection is encrypted and very fast. Also these guys DO NOT KEEP LOGS (HQ in Seychelles)! I am using VPN4All for 20 months for work & to watch US TV channels and I am very pleased.
    I used 3 other vpn apps for 6 months before VPN4All – they were either slow or had security issues. I repeat – they do not keep logs!!!
    Keep up the good work.

    Have used the VPN4ALL for 3 months and overall it does what is advertised and the servers are not powerhouses but and they do go down once in a while or the status changes I do a lot of USA TV watching or netflix and it work great for that, there p2p network is very limited as I suppose it is under attack by the powers that be, so if you share with friends it would be sufficient but lacking compared to a North american VPN service. Easy to set up software, a newb could do it blindfolded. Its a great service, I enjoyed using it, But I don’t think I would renew. :) my 2 cents.

    I have used other VPN services that say they all about privacy, but later to find out they are storing user data. I am infrastructure security specialist i have only used VPN4All(at home) for a few months have not found any major problems. Currently they are living up to their TOS.

    Only con is IPv6 no support yet?

    Ipv6 transition is coming. Internet servers be prepared to serve IPv6-only clients starting early January 2012.

    End user will likely not be affected in the interim. Business services that provide public Internet connectivity and content will be impacted by IPv6 (i.e. Dedicated Internet, web hosting, etc).

    I’m sure they working this issue

  • David Bennett says:

    This is an unsolicited review of the VPN service I’ve now been using for 3 months already: VPN4ALL.

    I chose them over all others (incl. HMA) because for a VPN it wouldn’t make sense to use one that’s headquartered in say the USA – or any country that is well-known to be extremely invasive and that doesn’t respect the taxpayer’s governance of his/her own data! Also note that I wasn’t sure whether I’d want a VPN or would just use proxies – in order to say perform intense keyword research on Google servers. It turns out I am very glad that I chose the VPN!

    The VPN4ALL software: Incredibly EASY to use, VERY clever software, and VERY user-friendly too! What I personally appreciate most with this VPN4ALL software is that it completely substitutes proxy use – and it is much cheaper than buying into private proxy lists on a regular basis (which would be the alternative). Naturally, it is also so much SAFER too. So how does the software “completely substitute private proxy use”? Because its “auto-change” feature switches between different IP addresses so fast (ca 8 to 12 seconds for me) that even if you use say software like Scrapebox, the VPN4ALL software does the trick! :-)

    The choice of servers: It’s good. Not as great as HMA’s, but certainly good enough. I can choose between countless countries, and often several servers per location. I can click “Change IP” to switch to a different IP on the same server. Or I can choose the option to “auto-change” – which I use eg for Scrapebox (auto-change every two minutes works well).

    The service: VPN4ALL has an extremely friendly and helpful Helpdesk. I had some troubles several times and they are very good with their response. You can really feel: They know their stuff. – Which is why I extended my subscription just a week ago!

    add to my previous revew:

    I wanted to give 4+1/2 star for support but accidentaly pressed submit buton before I corrected it. I dont give full 5 star rating because online chat support solve only basic things and for rest support ticket have to be opened

    As a last thing I would like to add that I suspect vpn4all ran a bit rough marketing campaign in begginning where prolly alot of fake positive reviews was release on behalf of company. I personally dont like those strategies but that doesnt mean company offer bad service. To be hosnest I myself ran a bit fake review campaign for my one project few years ago, hut lesson learned ..at the end it was contraproductive and not recommend rely on fake reviews to anybody as it may seem to help start with business but better way is simply be the best and cheap :-)

    Used this VPN for (how long): (didn’t use)

  • Peez says:

    Just tried vpn4all trial so gonna share what I think:

    1) their desktop app is not bad but should be improved,sometimes act unpredictably – freeze, button connect/disconnect not working, text description in menu is not showing full text. BUT despite that described glitches desktop app is not bad and is very useful and also offer many features..
    2) I tested only 3 servers included in Trial – Romanian server was down totally, germany server online but slow, seychellas server not really slow for notmal use like browsing but slow for streaming- but for other operations than streaming okay. As in this is also involved my actual dsl speed dont take this info as a 100% as its relative..

    3) online support is friendly, respond straight away but cant answer many questions and forward question to level 2 support by opening support ticket- so with online chat u can solve only very basic elementar things. Purevpn chat support for example is much better as those guys can answer most questions without transferring u to level 2 support as vpn4all do – which slow down whole process to get right answers. Anyway my vpn4all support ticket was answered in 24 hous which isnt bad..

    4)TOS policy is what actually keep me back to sign in, as by signing up for a service u agree with vpn4all TOS which is not any good. For example u agree that if they consider your activity as illegal or spamming their admins trace you down ( I ask myself how ..if they claim that dont keep any logs of anything) and u gonna be charge fee 170 usd/hour for their admin for tracing u down – which is really ridiculous as u never know what they can come up and what they can charge you

    8)Altrought they have not that many servers like HMA or few other big vpn providers they have enough servers, unfortunately many of them are connected 100 mb not gig

    9) they provide dynamic ips which is very good as u can switch easily from their app to different ip
    10) providing fixed ip as part of package is also very nice feature
    11) their website is not bad but missing more info about who is running a company, how netherland company is connected with seychellas subsidary, who is owner of company etc. BUT most other vpn companies doesnt reveal this info as well or have even less info but more info about company structure will be definitely good

    12)setup of trial account was fast and trouble free
    13) prices are not cheapest, vpn4all have one of most expensive prices from all vpn providers I considered. I didnt found any deal offer by any vpn review site as other vpn providers do…
    14)claimed offshore seychellas company location is good to protect pricvacy but as i described above as structure of company is unclear we really cant know how is it for real… will be good if vpn4all clearly describe that on website ..
    14) unfortunately vpn4all is only openvpn based and dont offer for example sstp or l2pt. Mainly sstp should be added.
    15)vpn4all unfortunately doesnt support more anonymous methods of payment as Liberty Reserve or ability to use bitcoin
    16) As WOT forummembers and myself found and also vpn4all states on their website they heavily use various marketing techniques including google analytics, mailists, cookies, online chat ip reveal, geolocation etc.. which may compromise reveal real user identity. Personally I think this is not good on vpn provider which should maintain maximal anonymity but most of others do same and also vpn4all state that on their website and dont do that secretely which is a plus…
    17) they have been reviewed on very few places so I wander why ? Other vpn review sites doesnt mention vpn4all so its kinda strange
    18) company is relatively new on market so we dont know how they go in longer period of time…

    CONCLUSION: Despite I have some points against vpn4all – mainly unclear company structure(should be much more clearly described on website), very restrictive and scary TOS policy, not possible to use anonymous payment methods and lack of SSTP support I consider vpn4all to my personal top 5 vpn companies which I will consider to use as all vpn companies have some positives and negatives…

    This is by far the best VPN service I ever used. Beats the others hand down. Besides having multiple services all around the world, as it has already been discussed here, it’s based in a country with no data retention laws. This is something very important if you want privacy. I did read the whole Privacy Policy (am I alone here, or do other people read it ? :) ), and one thing that catch my attention was: ” Web Broadcasting Ltd is located in a jurisdiction where Internet logs, personal information, account data and any client information is not required to be logged or cached, therefore any requests by law enforcement can be met without providing any information about clients or their data. Even a court order would not provide any personal data about users.”
    Not that I am doing anything illegal, but we live in a crazy world, and people are suing for nothing. Hey, if I accidentally say something other person thinks offensive, I can have some hard time. Better be safe than sorry, and surf the web with no worries. Oh, and support does work. They really do a good job. Congrats to all team. I’m a proud subscriber.

    I have been searching for a reliable VPN service for over a year, and I have tried about five of the most popular ones. I was on this website and decided to try out VPN4ALL. There trial version doesn’t provide much time to see the stability and features of the service. So I subscribed for the basic plan. Honestly, I am very impressed. Service is second to none.

    For those of you really looking for a great reliable setup and user friendly interface, this site is the best. I’m in Canada and I want to watch HULU and other restrictive sites and their software allows me to do it smoothly. The technical support is highly responsive and immediate. No issues installing the software.(using Vista/Mozilla Firefox). Dimitry and the staff are great people and really know their product.

    The software is not expensive for what they have to offer in quality and reliability. You want a great VPN service, stop trying to get it free, you get, what you don’t pay for.

    the main thing that to expect when i use a vpn service is to hide my IP. But does vpn4all support this basic feature. find it out your self
    just try the trial version an go to http://www.grc.com/intro.htm and click services–>ShieldsUP! and please tell me what did you find ;)

      JustMe, do you suggest there is something wrong with the results? I just ran scan on 10 random servers on their list, and all of them pass the test.

      ALL PORTS tested were found to be: STEALTH.
      TruStealth: PASSED – ALL tested ports were STEALTH,
      – NO unsolicited packets were received,
      – NO Ping reply (ICMP Echo) was received.

      Usually, I would consider your post a SPAM as it seems you are trying to promote this ShieldsUp service. However, it’s a useful one.

    I have been using HMA and have been pleased with it but would like to change to a VPN based off shore such as VPN4All. Currently, I have two problems with them however.

    1. They still have not made a mac client available
    2. I do not see any mention on their site of their service being usable with mobile devices. At the moment I have HMA set up on my iphone for when I want to use it to either watch video from other countries or protect my data.

    If these were to become available I would make the switch. As VPN4All seem to respond to issues mentioned on this site I would like to know if these two issues will be addressed anytime soon. I asked a customer service representative on their site who said that there is currently a mac version in testing but did not say when it might be available and I received no response about mobile devices.

    I had been doing a lot of research for a VPN provider and came across this website. I tried VPN4all.com free trial because bestvpnreviews ranked it so highly and I am really glad that I did! Great experience with this provider… the customer service tech support was VERY helpful! I was surprised because nowadays tech support is usually “try to communicate with someone from another country that can not understand you”!

    I also like that it automatically starts at boot up! Very fast and easy. I have read a lot about servers just offering you OpenVPN with no protection (which btw you can get for free at openvpn.org) and charging you for it! The software that VPN4all offers is secure and for $10 a month you really cant ask for a better deal…

    Happy surfing!

    The only thing that stoped me to buy this service is that they are not compatible with Mac Os. And I think it’s a pain in the ass having to download their own software, All VPN services should have an option of using the built-in VPN client.

    Looking for another one at the moment.

    • The MAC version will be out in a couple of weeks. Its in beta test now.

      As to the option to provide the use of the network with the built in Windows client – We will not do it for the simple reason that the built in Windows client is insecure. Whoever uses it risks that your originating IP will be seen every time there is a break in the underlying ISP connection. The windows client has no built in features to deal with this issue and other vulnerabilities. Companies are charging twice the cost of VPN4ALL for a an insecure connection, that I for one, would never utilize. And keep in mind that the udnerlying connection can break several times a day if you are on a dynamic IP with your ISP.

      So the notion of the Windows client is the very reason we built our APP – to get away from the vulnerabilities of the Windows client.

    Excellent service. It is extremely simple to use and setup, and works flawlessly for me!

    Although support and customer service responses aren’t always immediate, they’re always within a reasonable amount of time and ALWAYS helpful and patient with any issues you may have.

    They currently only offer 128-bit AES, and are in the process of launching 256-bit AES in the near future. Just be aware that it is, as of this post, 128-bit AES that is offered.

    Their prices are also reasonable and very scalable with your needs, which makes it affordable for what whatever amount of traffic you’re looking for.

    Overall, I cannot recommend this service enough and their helpful staff :)

    anthony…

    excellent info, keep it coming…

  • The only P2P that we don’t allow is the illegal kind that causes abuse reports that kill IPs. As long as file sharing doesn’t produce any abuse reports, VPN4ALL allows you to do what you like. So far in six months, we have only suspended one account for extreme abuse. Keep in mind that the abuse reports don’t only affect us but the entire peering network and we don’t want our thousands of customers to be affected by one abuser.

    So you are welcome to file share, just make sure that you do it in such a way that doesn’t harm the network.

    Hadopi…De mon point de vue personnel une telle loi s’est appuyée sur l’identification des fichiers partagés via leur adresse IP,ce qui rend la stratégie de cette loi “inexactes” ,car les adresses IP peuvent être forgées et détourné … et l’accès Wi-Fi est également facile à cracker.

    Donc si on essaye de résumer, ils ont cherché à édicter une loi qui est loin d’être générale, ce qui est loin d’être le cas car maintenant avec le VPN4ALL on peut naviguer habituellement sans soucis.

    PROTECTION

    Ultimate Privacy & Security:
    The online wilderness has become a more dangerous environment for your data and internet activities. Last year 105 million cases of data theft took place and 33 million people had their identities stolen online. Giants like Google, Facebook, and others are collecting all our personal data on insecure servers that multiplies the risk of data theft for all of us.
    Antivirus protects your computer but what keeps your data safe and hidden from hackers trying to steal your stuff or third parties collecting and storing it insecurely? Or obtaining personal information from our children and family as they surf innocently in forums and chat groups filled with unsavory users?
    The only safe and secure method to surf online without risk to your family’s ID and data is by using our simple to use VPN software. Once connected, your internet data, VOIP and everything else is encrypted and secure against prying eyes, including your ISP, thieves, and even governments By using VPN4ALL, you hide IP, you surf anonymously, secure all your transmissions, unblock and bypass restricted sites, watch online TV anywhere in the world and secure yourself against any online attacks.

    Real encryption and proper protocols – 128/256 Bit Encryption
    Server Security that prevents outsiders from getting into the servers and stealing
    your data from the same VPN service that is supposed to protect it.
    Privacy Policy with teeth that doesn’t log or cache (for real) and where the location
    of the VPN service prevents governments from going on fishing expeditions that
    could reveal your personal data.

    Why use VPN4ALL?

    Cyber & Internet security
    Third party monitoring
    Unblock all sites anywhere
    Sooner or later we all experience our anti virus failing and the misery of getting a virus/malware on our computers. Unfortunately, anti-virus only protects your hardware. It does not protect you at all when you go online. Your identity and your data is completely vulnerable to cyber crime when you go online to browse, shop, bank and do any other activities.

    This means Anti-virus only protects you half the time. VPN4ALL protects that other half of your activities – the online half. It protects your identity, credit card information, online banking and all your data and information from any kind of attack. That’s why you need both Antivirus AND VPN4ALL to be fully and completely protected both at your hardware and online.

    BENEFITS:

    I’d been looking for a reliable VPN service and found VPN4ALL which promises rather nice advantages in using internet like:

    5GB bandwidth per month
    OpenVPN 128bit
    Easy to use application
    Free Server Switching
    Fastest & favorites server option
    Dedicated PayPal & credit card IP
    Shared static IP
    No logging or caching on network

      Posting the same comment many times is the best way to have your IP banned for spamming.
      Read our VPN review guidelines. We do not distinguish between the age of VPN services. The only determination of future viability of a VPN service today is based on the quality of the product offering. An older VPN has just as much a possibility of bankrupting as a new one, perhaps more, because a new offering has fresh capital.

    Im using this service for a couple of months and now Im joining up for an annual membership. its the best VPN I have found that is not run out of the USA or UK. I just wont use a USA based VPN. Anyone who uses a USA VPN and lives in the US is nuts. All the data on the servers can be easily compromised by the US for any reason and the service would never tell you anything. Whoever tells you different is BS. I saw the posts for HideMyAss over here and its just silly. Im sure they have great service and all but there just cant be real privacy with a US service. I will never buy that. Why take the risk, it doesnt make any sense to me. if you can find a decent service that delivers outside of the US that has fast and a lot of servers, thats the ticket for me.

      I cant agree more. The most important reason for using vpn is privacy and if you use a service in the USA or UK or Europe you are totally at risk. Do you know that Europe has a law that all emails coming from any company based in Europe has to have a header with real information as well as company name, officers, who sent the mail, etc. And the USA has new data retentions laws that are being enforced against all ISPs and VPNs are considered the same as ISPs.

      So I agree 100% with this reviewer – if you want privacy take your vpn from a good off shore company and never use a US, UK or European service.

      Using a US service is setting yourself up for a serious fall. Imagine one day they go after the vpn service for some major terrorist or scam. They will go through all their cached data and force the service to cache and log for 6 months without telling anyone – and all your data will be checked. And then your login details, credit card details, banking info is now on a governement server with NO security. My take is its better not to use a US vpn and no vpn at all rather than use a USA vpn cause sooner or later the consequences will be huge.

      Im real happy someone raised this issue. By the way, I havent tried this vpn4all service but Ill check out the trial now as Im in the market for something thats off shore and real.

    Im an expat living in Singapore and I travel to China a lot. I mainly use the USA servers to watch TV and see my facebook account which is blocked over here. I had some problem connecting through the firewall of China but the support was really helpful and now it works well. Its not that fast in China as it is in Singapore but at least I can get out without being blocked.
    From my limited experience, this is a really easy to use vpn and the support was great for me.

    I am using this service now and I think its really good. I had some issues at the beginning with my login credentials not working but that got straightened out ok and since then its been easy to use. What I like is the automatic start up when I reboot. Having to constantly turn on and configure a vpn is a real pain for me. This is good so far and the support was quick.

    Before that I tried metropipe but they ripped me off and didnt give any service. Also tried xerobank and that was awful. Perfect privacy was really ok, but they dont have a usable app and I want something to starts and just runs…

  • P2P and File Sharing are now possible through select servers. When you are in the VPN4ALL application and wish to select servers, you will now find that some servers are marked P2P and some servers are marked NO P2P. Some jurisdictions permit P2P and file sharing and some don’t.

    And of course all legal P2P and file sharing is possible on all the servers. The TOS is clear about illegal downloading but if you are unsure about your download just use the servers that are marked P2P.
