Much like the fictional vigilante of the same name, ZorroVPN is dedicated to shrouding your online identity in full anonymity.
Between the dazzling variety in servers, military-grade encryption, and some seriously handy features — VPN+Tor, VPN chains, and port forwarding, to name a few — ZorroVPN isn’t lying when it refers to itself as an “advanced VPN service”.
Although this provider gives off the impression of its main concern being your undented privacy, you won’t be disappointed when it comes to torrenting or streaming. With P2P support on various servers, as well as adequate unblocking of sought-after streaming websites, this Belize-based VPN showcases its prowess in many different areas that comprise a dependable VPN service.
Just a couple of minutes on ZorroVPN’s stylish website will convince you that you’re looking at a serious, no-fuss provider with a knack for concise, yet informative explanations. ZorroVPN delivers on expectations by way of competent and responsive customer support, as well as an excellent FAQ section.
On the flipside, such levels of service come with a hefty price tag — and you may wonder where the live chat is in a VPN of this caliber. We aren’t saying ZorroVPN is perfect, but it’s up there. Thanks to the refund policy, you also have 7 days to try the VPN out risk-free.
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.
ZorroVPN is definitely an advanced VPN service — this sentiment is reflected in the ease-of-use department, but not in the best of ways.
What do we mean?
In short, ZorroVPN doesn’t have custom clients for any of its supported platforms. Windows users will have no choice but to set the VPN up manually, using the OpenVPN GUI or Viscosity — the latter can be used for OS X as well, with Tunnelblick being the alternative.
Our experience with the Windows configuration was challenging, but made easy thanks to the detailed tutorials on ZorroVPN’s website (screenshots included).
If you have any trouble with getting things running, this provider also offers remote assistance via TeamViewer, so you’ll have nothing to worry about even if it’s your first time doing a manual VPN setup.
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.
