TUVPN is a lesser-known VPN provider with its headquarters in the British Virgin Islands. At first glance, TUVPN gives a negative impression as a plain and mundane provider with limited features. However, as soon as we dug deeper into it, we found some interesting elements particularly when it comes to security and privacy.
With its base in the British Virgin Islands, TUVPN maintains high privacy standards by keeping no logs including activity logs. As for security, TUVPN commits to AES 256-bit encryption and supports a group of tunneling protocols such as OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec, PPTP, and SSH. OpenVPN is more secure, but if you’re a gamer, you may prefer PPTP as its faster. Using OpenVPN over SSH is also a good twist provided by TUVPN to secure your Internet connection even more.
Sadly, TUNVPN doesn’t have a kill switch, but it has a DNS leak protection feature called “Block Outside DNS.” Also, TUVPN offers a proxy service (less secure than a VPN) for browsers to access geo-restricted websites.
While many VPN services prohibit peer-to-peer activities on their services, TUVPN permits P2P and torrenting without bandwidth restrictions. Moreover, TUVPN is compatible with a bulk of platforms and devices including routers, although the installation process is rather daunting. If you’re looking for a more private connection, TUNVPN offers dedicated IP packages along with shared IP addresses.
Of course, committing to a subscription with a hidden service can be a risky move, but TUVPN offers a 7-day money-back guarantee in case you’re unhappy with their service. Payment methods include credit cards (Visa or Mastercard), PaySafe, and bank transfer and if you have any questions, you can reach the support team by submitting a ticket.
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.
TUVPN has 12 servers in 9 countries.
TUVPN isn’t our cup of tea when it comes to installation and ease of use. Despite its presence for almost a decade in the VPN arena, TUVPN doesn’t have an all-inclusive standalone, and intuitive software client for the platforms supported but still provides complicated and difficult configuration procedures.
To make it easier, TUVPN provides detailed setup guides and, tutorials and our advice is to follow the steps provided exactly as given.
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.
