The "1-Minute" Review

Verdict

IPVanish offers pretty much everything you’ll need in a VPN including fast performance, excellent customer support, and good prices. With that said, if you’re new to VPNs, the user interface isn’t intuitive. So you might not utilize all the features IPVanish offers.

What's good

  • Fast performance
  • IP address cycling
  • Live Chat
  • OpenVPN customizability
  • Good device support
  • 10 simultaneous connections

What's bad

  • Somewhat confusing interface
  • Potential logging concerns

With its extensive endorsements and sponsorships, there’s a good chance you’ve seen IPVanish all over the web. But does their service live up to the marketing hype? Let’s see what experts are saying about this popular VPN.

Pricing

For pricing, you can’t get much simpler than IPVanish.

There are three plans from which to choose -- which all offer the same features.

Billing options include every month, every three months, once a year. The monthly price is comparable to other mainstream VPN services. But you can save money if you’re willing to go with a longer subscription.

Supported Devices

IPVanish offers apps for Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, ChromeOS, and Windows. If that’s not enough, you can even configure it to work on routers and Windows Phones.

Why have a VPN on your router? This allows you to protect hardware that doesn’t support VPN apps -- such as your PlayStation, Smart TV, or Roku.

Ease of Use

IPVanish tries to stand apart from the crowd with their client UI. But, for those familiar with VPNs, their changes might be jarring.

Instead of having the standard connect/disconnect button and a list of locations, IPVanish’s panel hides your country choices in dropdown lists and has two buttons -- connect/disconnect and on/off -- which essentially do the same thing.

It’s not a VPN that’s user friendly.

However, TechRadar notes, “Its client looks more complex than the competition, but that’s mostly because they have more features and functionality…

Simultaneous Connections

IPVanish gives you 10 simultaneous connections. That’s a lot more than most other VPN services.

Included Features

IPVanish comes with plenty of features. Popular ones include:

  • P2P support
  • Killswitch
  • OpenVPN compatibility
  • TOR compatibility
  • IPv6 leak protection
  • IP address cycling

IPVanish also offers a great deal of control over your OpenVPN setup. You can choose which port to use and can also obfuscate the traffic to avoid detection in geo-restricted areas such as China.

Privacy and Logging

The company’s privacy policy states they do not collect or log any traffic and do not sell or rent personal information to third-parties.

Despite this, IPVanish responded to a summons from the US Department of Homeland Security to hand over information on user activities in 2016.

But since then StackPath bought IPVanish. They stated publicly, “With no exception IPVanish does not, has not, and will not log or store logs of our users as a StackPath company.

Performance

You’ll always experience some slowdown when web browsing using a VPN -- either with slower upload or download speeds or higher latency. However, when put to the test, reviewers were pleasantly surprised with IPVanish’s overall performance.

Support

IPVanish touts 24/7 customer support -- complete with live chat. This makes them a great choice if you want help immediately. If you can wait for one to two days, you can submit support tickets.

Self-help options include a useful support center and knowledge base. However, reviewers noted some answers are short. If you’re looking for detailed answers, you’ll want to use email support or live chat.

_

Summary

IPVanish offers fast performance, a wide variety of server locations, and plenty of customization. PC Mag states, “... it’s good enough to be listed among the best services we’ve tested.

IPVanish has a well-designed app with the most important features and very solid speeds. If you’re looking for ultimate privacy, IPVanish still needs to prove themselves after their 2016 debacle, but for basic coffee shop browsing, it’ll fit the bill nicely.

Super fast zero-logs VPN

from Top10VPN

IPVanish is one of our top picks, especially for Kodi, torrenting and other P2P, due to its excellent speeds, zero logging, and extensive privacy tools. It’s very fast on same-country connections, but less consistent on international connections across a network that’s mid-sized for locations but super-sized for servers and IP addresses.

For the price, we think you’ll have better luck elsewhere.

IPVanish is effective and reliable, with particularly good connection speeds on endpoints in mainland Europe. However, Kaspersky Secure Connection is much cheaper and significantly faster. If streaming TV is a priority, then Windscribe would be a better alternative, while Private Internet Access remained our recommended VPN for the privacy-conscious.

No logging, loads of options – but some problems, too

IPVanish is highly configurable with some fast locations, but the Windows client can be awkward to use.

A VPN that gets the job done

 IPVanish is a passable VPN service, but its speed isn't great and it doesn't do enough to stand out from the crowd.
