As for online security, SlickVPN secures its users’ traffic with a 256-bit encryption which also secures their connection greatly especially while using a public Wifi connection. In addition, the security protocols supported include OpenVPN, IPSec, and PPTP.
There are countless other features and capabilities that come with this impressive VPN provider and if we state them all we can keep going forever. All these features come at a very reasonable price which places SlickVPN at a competitive position in the VPN market. If SlickVPN only had a live chat support to be able to contact their customer support team in a more efficient manner, this would have been perfection.
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.
The signing up process with SlickVPN is as basic and simple as any other major VPN provider and maybe even easier. All you do is select a plan, enter your email address, select a payment option, and fill in your payment details. Once all that is complete, you’ll receive a confirmation email with your SlickVPN account credentials and links to download the client on your device.
Once the client is downloaded, open the installer and follow through with the wizard to complete the installation.
In this review we used the Windows client and let us tell you, the interface is pretty awesome. It’s as user-friendly as playing a video game. Whether you’re trying to connect to a server or navigating through the settings and configurations, everything is either right there in front of you or obtained by a simple click. We also checked out the clients for other platforms and they’re all at the same level of convenience.
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.
