In 2019, the CEO and the technical team of Kolpolok Limited, a Bangladesh-based software development company, put their heads together and created what is today known as Symlex VPN. Concerned with the growing rate of cybercrime, they set out to create a safe environment for users worldwide.
Symlex VPN is registered in two countries: South Africa and Bangladesh. Neither of the countries is in the Five, Nine, or Fourteen-Eyes nations, making them safe VPN locations.
So far, the company has 100+ servers in 65 countries in the world. The service is available in South America, Asia, and Europe, as well as in several locations in North America: Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Montreal, and Vancouver. However, the provider is mainly dedicated to providing a VPN service in Middle Eastern countries, where people have difficulties using social apps due to the restriction of their use.
Symlex VPN Features
Perusing the provider’s website, one can find out very little about Symlex VPN’s safety features other than the fact that it uses AES-256 encryption, has a kill switch, and prevents DNS leaks. It also uses a variety of protocols: UDP, TLS, TCP, HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, DNS, Wireguard, OpenVPN, OpenConnect, and AnyConnect.
Advantages of Symlex VPN
When you look at Symlex’s pricing, you can see that the provider offers the same service to all its paid users at different prices.
All subscribers can use the service on five simultaneous devices. The provider gives access to popular streaming services such as Disney+Hotstar, Netflix-USA-UK-Czech Republic, BBC iPlayer, Hulu, and Amazon Prime and can unblock social media platforms such as Messenger, TikTok, and WhatsApp.
The price of the service changes depending on the duration of your subscription: one month’s service will cost you $4.50, three months $9.99 ($3.33/month), six months $17.99 ($2.99/month), twelve months $27.99 ($2.33/month), and twenty-four months’ $34.99 ($1.45/month). Unfortunately, no free plan is available, but given that all Symlex VPN packages offer good value for money, this may not be a considerable drawback. You can also get a seven-day money-back guarantee – some providers give more. Still, a seven-day guarantee is better than no guarantee.
Symlex VPN is very easy to install and use. All you need to do is get the app from Google Play or Apple Store, sign up using your e-mail address and a four-digit sign-up code, and buy the preferred package. You can skip the part about adding your phone number and go straight to the payment options, which include payment by credit card (American Express or Master Card), debit card, or mobile banking (Bkash and Rocket). The interface is simple and easily navigated.
Symlex VPN may not be one of the top VPN providers out there, but it cannot be denied that it is a safe provider. It does not have any extras, but its encryption is state-of-the-art, and the kill switch will keep you protected in case of a VPN connection failure. Furthermore, streaming and torrenting are safe since the company is not in any surveillance alliances.
Symlex VPN does not log any information on users’ browsing history, traffic destination, data content, or DNS queries. They do not keep logs of users’ IP addresses, outgoing VPN IP addresses, connection timestamps, or session duration. However, the service provider stores basic information about their users (name, e-mail address, and payment information) and records of correspondence, complaints, or queries.
Disadvantages of Symlex VPN
The website design is visually adequate though minimalistic, yet you must dig deep to find any concrete information. The Support section is helpful but also basic. It contains a video guide on using Symlex VPN, an article about setting up your account, a WhatsApp chat option, an in-site chat option, and a somewhat limited FAQ section.
Symlex VPN provides protection against certain types of threats, such as social media hacking and data theft, through viruses and pop-up ads. This is especially important when using unprotected public Wi-Fi, where your confidential information may be exposed.
Unfortunately not. You can pay for Symlex VPN using a credit card, a debit card, or mobile banking.
To participate in the referral program, you must download the Symlex VPN app and get a premium subscription. To start the program, click on My Wallet. You will see a referral code you need to copy and share with your friends and acquaintances. The people you have shared the code with must redeem it and buy a premium subscription. The money you earn from the program will be deposited into your Symlex account.
