The provider AtlasVPN is an extremely new service on the market. The service was founded in January 2020 and it is still developing. The software is currently available for Apple iOS, Android and Windows. Atlas is a free service but it also offers a premium version. The only difference between the two versions is that you can access more and faster servers with the paid one.

Atlas VPN is well suited for:

  • Streaming from Netflix, Disney +, Amazon Prime (US), …
  • Avoid warnings.
  • Bypass geo-blocks.
  • Secure data transmission without log files.
  • Good speed.
  • Security on common devices.

Atlas VPN Price

Apart from the fact that you can also use the provider for free, the prices and tariffs for the premium version of Atlas are in the average range. However, if you take a closer look at the price-performance ratio, there are few functions and a relatively high price.

Of course, we still expect a lot of innovations here, so that the costs will soon pay off.

Use AtlasVPN for free

AtlasVPN can also be used for free and unlimited with servers in the Netherlands or the USA. It is sufficient to enter a valid email address in the applications and confirm it.

Atlas VPN: speed

In general, the service offers relatively good speeds streaming videos on Youtube, series on Netflix, or simply surfing the Internet normally. The service runs without interruptions. The only shortcomings we found were with online gaming. The service is not so well suited for these purposes.

privacy and data protection

Privacy with AtlasVPN

The service states that it does not use log files at all. You don’t have to register to use the software either. All you can do is download the app and connect directly to the VPN. AtlasVPN respects the privacy of individual users and does not constantly send notifications that could be annoying.

The service is really solid but for now, it does not have many protocols to choose from. We think that there is sure to be something more to come.

Streaming with Atlas VPN

Streaming is actually completely problem-free and without interruptions with Atlas VPN. A huge plus point is that you can use Netflix easily and anywhere. That is, the service is not recognized. The provider is particularly at the forefront of US platforms and can also unblock Amazon Video and Disney +.

ATTENTION: This only applies to the premium version of Atlas VPN! The servers of the free version are recognized.

Atlas VPN for traveling

Atlas VPN is not that good for travel. Particularly, public hotel networks can be very dangerous because they are unprotected. For this purpose, it is recommended to use a VPN that offers functions such as shadowsocks.

Software & Applications

At the moment the applications are only available for Apple iOS, Android and Windows and we are expecting more options. The software itself is nicely structured and clear, you can simply connect with one click and you won’t be confused with settings. There are no protocols to choose from, as we have already said, – IKEv2 only.

Tracker & access rights of the AtlasVPN app

The AtlasVPN app in the Android Google Playstore showed the following trackers on 02/14/2021:

  • AppsFlyer / Installation analysis.
  • Google CrashLytics / Crash Logging.
  • Google Firebase Analytics / Visitor Analysis.

In addition, the following rights are granted to the application when it is installed on the Android device:

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE / Detect network connections.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE / Detect Wifi connections.
  • FOREGROUND_SERVICE / Run in the foreground.
  • INTERNET / Full network access.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED / Start when the device starts.
  • WAKE_LOCK / Prevents deactivation in sleep mode.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE / Access to the external memory (SD cards).
  • BILLING / Access to billing.
  • RECEIVE / Receiving messages.
  • BIND_GET_INSTALL_REFERRER_SERVICE / Analysis of recommended websites for installation.

In contrast to many other VPN services, the application has very few access rights and apparently monitors from which websites awareness of AtlasVPN has come. The provider’s point of view is that this information is relatively harmless and primarily serves the provider’s marketing department. Probably, these services can market your products as successfully as possible.

Customer service

AtlasVPN offers live chat but it is only available in English and is not so easy to contact for some German users. There is also a small FAQ section where you can hopefully get the answers to your questions.

Features

Since Atlas VPN is still quite new to the market, it doesn’t have much to offer yet. A kill switch and a malware blocker are already integrated and are also a plus point in the test. We hope for many more new features and are excited to see how the service will develop in the future.

FAQ

Is it possible to use Atlas VPN for free?

Yes. But there is also a premium version that has a lot more to offer than the free one. Nevertheless, the service runs very solidly and you can simply download it and start right away.

Does Atlas VPN save log files?

No. The service says it does not save any log files. Likewise, you don’t need to create your own account to use the app. You can start right away without registering. However, one should not rely on AtlasVPN not to pass on user data anyway.

Our conclusion on AtlasVPN

Atlas VPN is a brand new service on the market and we are excited to see what else will be new. The service does not currently have that many functions on offer, but what is left can still be done. All in all, AtlasVPN offers clear software that can have good speeds in everyday life. In addition, with the premium version, you can also use Netflix from anywhere!
