If you’re looking for a straightforward VPN that’s cheap, doesn’t keep activity logs, can access a bunch of stubborn services (like Netflix, Hulu, and BBC iPlayer, etc.), and permits P2P without any restrictions, then ZenVPN is the one for you. ZenVPN sprung from Dominica in 2013 to provide a jumble of security features enough to browse the Internet securely and privately with support for multiple protocols (OpenVPN, L2TP/IPsec, and PPTP) and ultra-simple clients for various platforms (Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Linux and Android). With a network of servers in 34 countries, this VPN is very handy for people on the go or for those who constantly connect to public WiFi/hotspots. But, don’t expect “blazing fast” speeds as claimed on the website, take our word for it. On the other side of the rainbow, ZenVPN offers a free trial and 30-day money-back guarantee on all subscriptions. There are two types of subscription plans: limited and unlimited at reasonable prices. In addition, if you have any questions or issues with the service, you can contact their support team via email or live chat. Their email response is much faster (usually within 4 hours), whereas the live chat team is only available at certain hours.
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.
ZenVPN has one of the easiest and simplest installation setup procedures. No configuration is required, just download the app on your device and let it do all the magic. Once installed, ZenVPN will automatically connect to the optimal server for your location, but you can always disconnect and choose a specific server. There’s nothing special about the interface; it’s very basic and easy to navigate, so at least you don’t have to be a tech wiz to figure your way through it. ZenVPN is very light and won’t take much of your space.
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.
