VPN.ac Review 2020

vpn.ac as browser extension
VPN.ac as a browser extension

VPN.ac is a smaller VPN provider. The service includes servers in over 20 countries and it also got its browser extension for Chrome and Firefox, with 32 proxy server locations. The servers are specifically designed for worldwide streaming because they can bypass many web page locks. The small amount of servers is distributed well throughout the world.

The service of this provider can be recommended if you want to be safe on the Internet. Also if you want to stream over a long period. You can expect about 10 Mbps, which is enough. However, it is not recommended to use this VPN provider for torrenting purposes.

Our conclusion to the VPN.ac review

Anonymous on the internet with VPN.ac

The company is constantly working on the best solutions for data security and encryption. Also, the service offers the very latest and not yet widely used protocol with 4096-bit encryption. The data of users is stored only in temporary storage and therefore they are not readable for third parties. All servers are secured with a two-way authentication and are impossible to hack. The provider allows multi-hop, even if the selection is limited until now. Nevertheless, this VPN provider is good protection against targeted tracking.

Streaming – TV and video content

When it comes to streaming, this provider can keep up with the top vendors quite well. You can expect a speed of about 10 Mbps. The servers are used very little, which allows good speeds.

VPN.ac Download and Torrenting

These purposes are allowed on all servers! However, it is not recommended to do a download with the service of the provider. The speeds are very slow. The kill-switch feature prevents your IP address from being encrypted due to interruptions to Internet connections.

VPN.ac while traveling

Better do not use VPN.ac when you are traveling. It got protection when you enter unsafe wifi networks but there is no function like Shadowsocks. Also, the usage in hotels is not recommended.
