VPN.ac Review 2020
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
VPN.ac makes a safe impression. We also had some discussions with the technicians and they are very competent. Privacy and anonymity of the customers are really important to the provider, even if it has the location in Romania, you can rely on streaming applications or torrent/file sharing.
VPN.ac is headquartered in Romania and was founded in 2009. The service specializes in streaming and the anonymity of its users. There is a lot of work going on to get the best solutions for encryption and data security.

The speeds of the provider are not the best. If you are looking for a provider with amazing speeds, this VPN is not the right one for you.
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.
