Noodle VPN Reviews and Expert Opinion - November 2019

What do we look at?

Noodle VPN Overview

Noodle VPN attracts with flexible plans, cheap prices, and server variety — but a couple of glaring omissions raise some eyebrows.

The service looks really good on paper, with a wide array of supported protocols and strong encryption.

Noodle VPN isn’t feature-rich, but that’s standard for a budget provider. However, they did add a kill switch and IP/DNS leak protection in a recent update.

This VPN’s problems stem from presentation — or in some cases, the lack thereof. For instance, Noodle VPN claims to offer “CiscoVPN” as a separate profile, describing it as “new and better than OpenVPN”. This is neither accurate nor true.

The biggest issue, however, is the missing terms of use, as well as detailed privacy/refund policies. In other words, when you use Noodle VPN, you are virtually left in the dark. As for your privacy, you are fed scattered tidbits across the website — Noodle VPN claims it doesn’t keep any logs, but why not put that in clear writing?

All in all, there is much mystery surrounding Noodle VPN. Luckily, you have a free trial, but at 250 MB of allowed bandwidth and no refunds, we recommend looking for a VPN that looks and feels polished.

Speed7.0

Why Most Speed Tests are Pointless & How We Correctly Test VPN Speeds

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.

User Experience8.6

If you’re running Windows, getting Noodle VPN to run is a breeze thanks to the provided app. It’s not the prettiest client out there, but it works flawlessly.

If you want a more hands-on approach, Noodle VPN has you covered with multiple guides.

However, the knowledge base as a whole could use some major improvements. It certainly isn’t exhaustive, and many important topics have yet to be addressed.

Personal assistance isn’t great, either — your only means of contacting Noodle VPN support is via tickets.

We’ll also share a pet peeve related to Noodle VPN’s blog. Here’s some advice: you make a blog to provide your users with interesting content and important news, not to fill it with articles on the various payment methods they can use to purchase your service.

How We Test Customer Support and Why Should You Care

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.
