With a name like Perfect Privacy, you’d expect the service to offer, well perfect privacy. Does it live up to its
name? Let’s see what the experts think.
The company offers several payment options with terms ranging from month-to-month to up to two years. As with other
services, the longer you subscribe for, the cheaper your overall costs. With that said, even when paying for the
two-year subscription, the “monthly” cost is still more expensive than many other comparable VPNs, making Perfect
Privacy one of the most expensive options on the market.
Perfect Privacy offers a client for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. If you want to get the Android app, you won’t
find it on the Play Store as Google’s app requirements would infringe on user privacy. Instead, you will need to
download the APK file from the Perfect Privacy website.
Ease of Use
Once you start up the client, it presents you with a list of servers and locations. The list includes an available
bandwidth indicator in megabits and the ability to ping servers to test response times.
While straightforward PC World calls the interface “dated and utilitarian. The long list, the gray background, the
small text, and the larger buttons at the bottom of the window all add up to a very old look...” Still, if you
don’t mind a less attractive interface, it’s usable.
It also allows for some customization in terms of what protocol to use, whether to start automatically and, for more
advanced users, the ability to hop between several servers.
With Perfect Privacy, you receive an unlimited amount of simultaneous connections. So if you’re looking to keep all
of your devices -- or the whole family -- connected and protected, this VPN is a good pick.
- Multi-hop + NeuroRouting
- TrackStop blocker
- Router installation for blanket protection
- Level 3 Killswitch for optimum protection
- Stealth VPN for VPN obfuscation
As noted above, Perfect Privacy allows users to create a multi-hop (up to 4) cascade of servers, further protecting
your privacy. While not the only service to offer multi-hop, it is one of the few that can do it easily. Most only
offer two servers.
NeuroRouting, which is similar to the Tor network, activates server-side and routes all traffic through several hops
in the VPN network. In addition, you also receive TrackStop which acts as an ad, tracking, and malware
Privacy and Logging
From sign up, Perfect Privacy tries to keep your identity anonymous. It never asks for your real name. Instead,
you’ll use a user name and email address. While it accepts payment via credit card, you can also pay via PayPal,
Bitcoin, or cash.
The company location is a bit of a mystery. The main company (Vectura Datamanagement Limited Company) is based in
Switzerland -- a privacy-friendly jurisdiction. The technical implementation portion of the company is based in
Panama under the name Webinvest International SA -- another solid jurisdiction for privacy.
And speaking of privacy, Perfect Privacy touts they do not log browser or login activity. They do, however, track
total usage ratio of their servers so you can see the bandwidth of each server.
Most reviewers were happy with server speeds. There are only 37 servers in 23 countries with the fastest servers
were located in the US, Europe, and Australia. Compared to other VPNs the selection is small, but experts had no
issues with speed or connection.
While you won’t get 24/7 live chat, Perfect Privacy multiple channels for support including:
- Website FAQs
Email received the fastest response times for most reviewers with responses coming in within a few hours.
Overall, Perfect Privacy offers some excellent features -- such as unlimited connections, multi-hopping between up
to four servers, and good performance. But it comes with a higher price tag than many competing services. If you’re
okay with paying more for better anonymity, then Perfect Privacy might be a good option.
UK VPN notes, "Perfect Privacy is a reliable VPN service that puts security and privacy as their main priority. The only problem with this solid VPN service is that it’s too expensive."
VPN Ranks calls it "a service that comes with some ultra-impressive features that may appeal to knowledgeable VPN consumers."
