RUSVPN Review 2020
RUVPN is a completely reliable service. It offers its users high anonymity on the network, a large number of servers. But is everything so good? Read our review.
The service, known as RUSVPN, is based in the Commonwealth of Dominica. Many aren’t talking about it yet, but we still decided to write a full RUSVPN review.
The name of the service is derived from the slogan: “Reliable. Unlimited. Secure. VPN ”. Although the service has Russian-speaking operators, because much content is displayed error-free, especially in this language, the name may therefore also be a sign for the operators themselves.

You get the period that you have paid in advance and can suspend an automatic extension at any time. The provider promises that this can be done by simply sending a short message to customer service.
Credit cards, PayPal and also Webmoney, QIWI or Yandex Money are available to the user as payment options. When registering a user account, the service only asks for a valid customer email address. No further personal information is ascertained, but this data is known anyway due to the payment methods.
There is also a 30-day money-back guarantee, which can also be used to test the service without risk. We tried this and the service was easy to cancel using the contact form and we got the money back within 3 days.
You can use RUSVPN for free as well!
With the two extensions available for Google Chrome and Firefox, you can use at least 5 different locations completely free of charge and without restrictions. This is also ideal for getting to know the service first.

Anonymity with RUSVPN
RUSVPN review: if you are just looking for maximum anonymity when using a VPN, you will be disappointed with this service. RUSVPN will not receive any requests for information directly and therefore will not need to request or force it to collect or process data from users and transmit it. BUT anyone who uses individual VPN connections and does not use cascades (multi-span VPNs) will always be tracked to some extent by international efforts. The advantage of RUSVPN is that the company will be less affected by international efforts due to fewer users working with authorities. Anyone looking for 100% protection against targeted monitoring will rely only on VPN cascades and will not use VPNs with simple VPN connections.

The provider offers 338 servers in 30 different countries. The main reason to use RUSVPN will be bypassing geographic blocks, which is why a larger number of locations seems important.
Interestingly, there is also a very rare country “China” among the server locations. For some users, this can also be a reason to choose RUSVPN, because mildly speaking, server locations in China are very rare.
RUSVPN uses the well-known OpenVPN, L2TP and also the PPTP protocol for its VPN servers. SOCKS proxies are also available for use with the browser extensions. OpenVPN can be used on almost all devices, but additional protocols would be better in some cases to support Apple operating systems better and to achieve faster transmission speeds. The RUSVPN servers are rented, but due to the technology used they are still very secure.
In my tests for the RUSVPN review, I found out that the network did not seem to be very busy. This led to good speeds in my tests. However, it can be assumed that these speeds can also be significantly reduced if individual servers are loaded. Then a server change will be needed. This is quite simple using applications. But on external devices where you need to configure the service manually, it may take a little more effort. However, in each country several servers are available. we assume that they will be expanded accordingly with increasing use and, demand.
Due to the lower load on the servers, there are currently practically no speed limits when using RUSVPN servers. A prerequisite is, of course, the choice of a VPN connection with a good connection from its location and the corresponding protocol.

RUSVPN Review: Applications
The service has its apps for the following devices: Android, Apple iOS, Windows. Besides, you can also use the appropriate extensions for the “Google Chrome” and “Firefox” browsers or use the service via “OpenVPN” clients on any device. macOS, Linux, and other devices use freely accessible solutions to integrate the service. Appropriate illustrated instructions (English) are available on the website.
RUSVPN browser extensions
There are currently extensions for Firefox as well as for the Google Chrome browser. So you can use the proxy servers of RUSVPN directly. This can help to quickly use, for instance, the desired server for streaming without much installation effort.
RUSVPN for Windows
The application for Windows has been specially programmed and has only recently been published. The design obviously played a subordinate role, but the application is functional and, in addition to the selection of various VPN protocols, also offers security-relevant functions such as “KillSwitch”.
With the two extensions available for Google Chrome and Firefox, you can use at least 5 different locations completely free of charge and without restrictions. This is also ideal for getting to know the service first. You can download the two extensions right here and use them immediately!

What can I say about RUSVPN?
The service has a lot to offer and is also very easy to use. It is safe to use for streaming and file exchange, so requests for information from western countries will hardly be successful. The speed and the possible uses are extremely good and therefore well suited for many users and devices. The service offers good if not excellent applications and a fair price.
