Hailing from Estonia, BulletVPN impresses with a clean, professional approach and strong privacy.
It’s always a good sign when a VPN offers an iOS app — this means the lengthy approval period has been passed, and speaks volumes of the provider’s dedication to a better service. BulletVPN is one of those providers.
Security features include great variety in protocols (including OpenVPN and IKEv2), 256-bit encryption, and 4096-bit RSA keys, making BulletVPN a top-shelf product. Although the kill switch and DNS protection are missing, uptime is immaculate and we detected no DNS leaks whatsoever.
On the privacy front, BulletVPN’s well-written policy goes into great detail on the information it collects — and logs of any kind aren’t on the list. In short, those who demand full anonymity will get it with this VPN.
Although content unblocking is secondary to protection for BulletVPN, you’ll still manage to gain access to a wide array of streams in services — including US Netflix and websites censored in China. A big bonus is the Smart DNS feature, which comes free with each plan.
Any drawbacks? Hardly. BulletVPN remains a solid service that achieves exactly what it sets out to do — giving users better security and more freedom on the Internet. It earns our respect and recommendation, and if you don’t agree, you have 30 days to get a full refund. No fine print.
Speed determines how fast content uploads, so if you're torrenting or streaming, you want the speed to be somewhat identical to your regular internet speed. Since a VPN encrypts your data, it usually takes a bit longer to send your data back and forth, which can slow down your connection. However, if your ISP deliberately slows down your connection (also known as throttling) a VPN might increase your internet speed. Testing a VPN is somewhat pointless because new servers pop up and affect speed. Your speed can also differ according to your location, so your speed test might not match ours. Having said that, we tested the speed in numerous locations to provide you with the average.
From your first steps in configuring the service to contacting support for help, BulletVPN shows its commitment to a smooth, enjoyable experience.
With apps for Windows, MacOS, and mobile, the vast majority of users will be ready in a hot minute. Manual setup guides are available for many other platforms, including Apple TV, Roku, Smart TVs, and even gaming consoles.
The apps are stylish but functional, sporting an intuitive interface. Beginners will definitely appreciate them, but the lack of any real settings might leave advanced users wanting more.
If you want to shoot a question to BulletVPN, you can use the multi-language ticket system — responses will vary depending on complexity, but we’d rather wait several hours for a detailed, thought-out answer than a quick pile of gibberish.
We personally test the customer support team of every VPN we review. This means asking technical question through the live chat feature (where applicable) and measuring the response time for email questions. Whether you need to connect to a specific server, change your security protocol, or configure a VPN on your router, finding a VPN with quality customer support should be important to you.
