Reliable servers, zero logging, and a fine balance between privacy and leisure — ZoogVPN offers all that, and more.
Headquartered in Greece, ZoogVPN is able to keep users safe and anonymous thanks to privacy-friendly legislation, as well as the provider’s own airtight policy. Add top-of-the-line encryption and multiple supported protocols, and you have a VPN that’s both secure and versatile.
As far as accessibility, ZoogVPN proves to be an attractive choice with P2P support on select servers, in addition to excellent unblocking. Trickier platforms like Netflix and Hulu are within this VPN’s reach, despite its compact server network.
There are some things we’d love to see improved or added — the absence of a kill switch, for example, is a rather glaring omission at ZoogVPN’s price point. Customer support could also be worked on, as there isn’t a live chat option. That said, the ticket system is comprehensive and capable of helping you out in satisfying fashion.
Overall, ZoogVPN is a solid choice — it’s available on all major platforms (with native clients for most), allows up to 5 simultaneous connections, and even has a free version. If you want to dive straight into the premium experience, there are plenty of enticing deals going around regularly. You’re also covered by the 7-day money-back guarantee.
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.
If you’re on Windows or Mac, setting ZoogVPN up is a simple task. The same goes for Android and iOS devices — thanks to native clients, you’ll be done in a matter of minutes.
While ZoogVPN runs on a variety of other platforms (including Linux, Blackberry, Chromebook, and an assortment of routers), you’ll have to set up a connection manually for those.
The client itself is consistently good — both in appearance and performance. It’s clean, stylish, and extremely easy to navigate. You can do everything from changing servers to enabling WiFi protection, although the lack of any advanced settings is definitely felt.
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.
