Does VPN Unlimited provide online privacy protection? That’s the crux of our newest BurnWorld review and the question we’ll be trying to answer in today’s post. We’ve checked out the trial version and read up on the opinions of other buyers and have come to the conclusion that this is actually a good VPN. This especially applies to users who are worried about the new Comcast Internet security measures, which actually contradict Internet neutrality rules. But before we delve into the specifics, let’s check out what this product can do.
VPN Unlimited: What is it?
Like all VPNs, VPN Unlimited claims to be a one-stop shop for complete online privacy protection. It works according to a simple principle: it provides you with a private, secure IP number, so that you can browse the web safely, no matter where you are. If you’re connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot, for instance, you’re far more vulnerable to attacks from spies and hackers, so a VPN will protect you from making private data too easily accessible to these malicious users. This way, you can safely transfer data from hotels, cafés, or any other public network. You’ll be routed via a server located in a different country.
Among others, the program boasts servers in Canada, Netherlands, the United Kingdom, various U.S. locations, Romania, and other countries with frequently accessed online resources. The list of server locations is continuously updated. Not only is personal data protected through the use of VPN Unlimited, but you can also access otherwise blocked content while traveling. Territory restricted content can become available to you on vacation, simply by obtaining an adequate IP address.
VPN Unlimited: Specifications
There are no particular specs for it, and it works with nearly any system and device imaginable. You can try out the unlimited access 10-day free trial to decide whether or not you want to go ahead and make a full purchase. Traffic bandwidth availability and connection speed are not capped – not even for the trial version. As for purchasing VPN Unlimited, you get to decide what the best option for you is: you can buy a 10-day subscription for going away on vacation, sign up for a month, a year, or even three years. One single payment will grant you access to the software across all your devices, from desktop and laptop PCs, to Macs, to Linux-powered machines, to Android and iOS operated mobile devices. There’s even a stand-alone version for Microsoft C++ and in case you’re a newbie wondering how to setup VPN on Windows 7, you needn’t worry. Simply allow the software to bypass your firewall, like you would on any other version of Windows, and you’ll be good to go.
VPN Unlimited: Features
As outlined above, the program comes with the complete data protection and safe browsing package. Though it does score some negative points, its range of features is impressive. Check them out for yourself below.
- You can protect all the passwords, card details, and other personal identification information you type on your device. You will be virtually untrackable with this online privacy protection software.
- The unlimited bandwidth and connection speed are a huge advantage, which can be easily tested during the use of the free trial version.
- If you’re concerned about the intrusive nature of the recent Comcast Internet security measures, rest assure that this software will help hide you.
- The software scores very highly in terms of server response times. In fact, a cursory comparison we ran online revealed that VPN Unlimited has some of the fastest servers out there, on the VPN provider market segment.
- Unlike blackVPN, for instance, this program logs your IP address (for anti-spam, fraud, and abuse purposes, allegedly). Also, the software’s ToS almost specifically prohibits torrents, which is not the case with the other VPN provider mentioned above.
- The software can seem rather pricey, at least when compared to other similar ones. However, its developer regularly runs limited time offers for discounts of up to 70 per cent, off the price of a 3-year subscription.
- Some users have reported glitches when trying to download software updates for their computer, as well as when accessing certain websites. Many of those who did eventually asked for a refund and received timely responses from the developer’s customer support service.
All in all, we had a good run with VPN Unlimited. We attempted to watch a foreign television show via an online web streaming service and encountered no problems. The loading time was adequate and there were no glitches, as far as running other software connected to the Internet is concerned. We’ve also tested the program on an iOS smartphone and an Android tablet and got equally good results (although other reviewers have complained about the program blocking their Android device web browser). The free trial version here also offered unlimited connection speed, as promised by the developer, which definitely made a difference as far as our user experience went.
