With both a free and a paid service available, X-VPN is a great VPN for those who want to unblock streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. If you opt for the premium subscription, you’ll gain access to over 5,000 servers in over 90 locations across the globe, as well as servers tailored exclusively for streaming.
Unfortunately, this is not the cheapest VPN out there. However, if you choose to subscribe for a year, you can save half of what you would pay if you were paying monthly. They have a 7-day money back guarantee, which isn’t bad, but if you’re looking for a 30-day money back guarantee you should check out our ExpressVPN review.
Unlike other free VPNs, X-VPN is passionate about their no-logging policy, which means you can rest easy knowing that your personal information is safe. This VPN offers the essential security features that many free VPNs don’t provide.
Features such as a kill switch, DNS leak protection, and split tunneling ensure that your device is fully protected. If you don’t want to choose the premium service, the free version can still offer you a lot, including the option to connect to one location through their “Fastest Server” option which connects you to the best server for your network based on your location.
This is great as a free way of protecting your device but is not so great if you want to watch Netflix content from a specific country. The only other downside of the free service is that you will be seeing advertisements throughout.
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.
X-VPN’s app is easy to download and install and has a task-orientated design which means you can tailor the app to match what you want to get out of the VPN. Furthermore, the app looks good and is super simple to navigate, which is great for those who don’t really know the ins and outs of a VPN. However, if you’re looking for a little more depth with your VPN experience, then X-VPN may be too simplistic for your tastes as the lack of advanced options makes the user experience very basic.
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.
