My name is Per-Erik-Eriksson. I am a computer science graduate from Lund University and have worked as a software engineer at Microsoft. Today, I will be sharing my review of the VPN service VeePN.
What Is VeePN?
VeePN is a VPN service provider that is based in Panama. Although it might not be a huge name, it has servers in 50 locations, most of which are in Europe and the US as well as the Asia Pacific and the Middle East. It has a lot to offer and even has an app for Linux, Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. In addition to this, VeePN has extensions available for Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera. When you create an account, you get to connect up to 10 devices at a time.
Does VeePN have a need for speed? Not really. Having connected to the “Optimal location,” we’ve run some speed tests and saw that VeePN hardly drags your browsing speeds down. More than that — it even boosted the upload speed. Here’s our baseline measure:
And here’s the connection speed with VeePN:
VeePN has an incredible app and easy signup procedure which should not take a lot of time. It is quite similar to any other service provider out there. You just have to enter your email address, select a plan, and pay for the service. That is about it. You should be good to go within just a few seconds. There is a download area where you can see other apps offered by the company. As for the client interface, it is simple and only requires you to click or tap on the round connect button to use the VPN service. You can go through the location list to determine which location works best for you.
The settings are quite extensive. All the basics are covered including protocols such as IKEv2, OpenVPN, VeePN Smart UPD, and VeePN Smart TCP. There is also DNS leak protection and a kill switch. The app also connects to a server automatically when you access a new network which is something that I came to like. Moreover, there is also tracker, malware, and ad-blocking available. Therefore, you can expect to have the perfect online experience. You can select the optimal location feature which would choose the best server for you automatically and ensure that you benefit from the highest speed.
The kill switch is an absolute must when browsing online. It ensures that your data remains protected by blocking your internet access and preventing data leaks.
Pros of VeePN
- Reliable speeds
- An extensive network
- Offers bitcoin support
- Runs on most platforms
- Affordable pricing if you choose the 5-year plan
Cons of VeePN
- The Android mobile app needs some work
How Does It Compare To Other VPNs?
Overall, VeePN does provide what it promises. However, it does have its fair share of issues. But, it has managed to improve considerably over time and is committed to making changes. If it continues to upgrade its features, it could easily become the most popular service provider. When compared to other services, it needs to up its game as NordVPN and ExpressVPN provide an amazing experience to their users.
Pricing and Features
When it comes to pricing, VeePN has different plans available. If you decide to choose the monthly plan, you will need to spend around $10.99, whereas, the annual plan only costs $5.83. For maximum savings, you can subscribe to the five-year plan which costs $1.67. Therefore, if you end up liking the service, you might want to upgrade to the five years as it is the most affordable option when compared to just about every VPN service out there. However, there is no free plan but you can claim the 30-day money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied. As for payments, VeePN accepts debit and credit cards, Bitcoin, PayPal, and other cryptocurrencies.
Yes, you should be able to stream Netflix when you use VeePN. Some of the Netflix libraries I managed to access include the UK, the US, Argentina, Japan, and India. But, the VPN does not unblock other streaming services such as BBC iPlayer, Disney+, or Hulu.
One of the areas where VeePN truly shines is protection. It offers 256-bit encryption, a no-logs policy, and a kill switch. As you should be able to use IKEv2 and OpenVPN protocols, you should be able to use the internet without having to worry about your data being discovered. Moreover, VeePN prevents DNS leaks which is something that you will also come to appreciate about the service provider. Therefore, safety and protection are its strong suits.
