What the Critics Are Saying...


vpnMentor

Avira VPN is a smart download for a basic VPN, especially on the cancel-anytime plan. However, the lack of customization in technical details excludes it from being a top-tier VPN service and leaves it behind the competition when stacked up against similarly-priced alternatives. With its ease of use...

Avira offers fast, consistent speeds across its global network, which goes some way to reducing the negative impact of having such a limited number of server locations. Privacy-wise it’s nothing spectacular, but features a high enough level of encryption to ensure your personal information is protec...

- Simon Migliano, Top10VPN
Tom's Guide

Occasional VPN users, or those who want to protect only their email, will love the free monthly gigabyte of Phantom VPN service. But Phantom VPN would be vastly improved by better reliability, and the paid service doesn't offer enough features to make it competitive with full-featured VPN services.

We liked that they offered a free plan right out of the gate. That way, you could test drive their service before upgrading. Their logging policy was refreshingly transparent (and fair), too. But unfortunately, their awful speed performance, combined with frustrating service, and lack of features li...

Avira VPN is a smart download for a basic VPN, especially on the cancel-anytime plan. However, the lack of customization in technical details excludes it from being a top-tier VPN service and leaves it behind the competition when stacked up against similarly-priced alternatives. With its ease of use—only two clicks necessary to connect to the VPN—the free option should be looked at for anyone that simply can’t pay for a good VPN, but higher-end users should look to one of our 10 best VPNs as other selections.

Fast, reliable VPN

Avira offers fast, consistent speeds across its global network, which goes some way to reducing the negative impact of having such a limited number of server locations. Privacy-wise it’s nothing spectacular, but features a high enough level of encryption to ensure your personal information is protected.

We liked that they offered a free plan right out of the gate. That way, you could test drive their service before upgrading. Their logging policy was refreshingly transparent (and fair), too. But unfortunately, their awful speed performance, combined with frustrating service, and lack of features like router compatibility or torrenting leave a lot to be desired.

Security Gladiators

Offers fast VPN servers and decent security

from Security Gladiators

This VPN service has a bad privacy policy hence not good enough if you want to protect your privacy. However, it does have reasonable VPN server speeds and generally passes the security test.

PC Magazine

Solid overall, but not the best

from PC Magazine

Avira Phantom VPN secures the web browsing of as many devices as you like, and allows you to torrent to your heart's content, but it's light on features and likely won't please speed-conscious users.

Best VPN

A solid, simple, and easy to use VPN

from Best VPN

If you are looking for a good value, all-round security package, I would definitely recommend this firm, especially if your primary motivation is unblocking content and hiding your data from your ISP and the government.

The VPN Lab

Offers high-level encryption and smooth performance

The overall performance was extremely smooth, we did not experience any dropouts, and we are happy to say that we did not detect any IP or DNS leaks. We also like that you get unlimited bandwidth with your subscription, so you can browse, stream, and download care-free.

TechRadar

A VPN service aimed very much at the average home user

from TechRadar

Avira Phantom VPN's commercial package is a little overpriced for what you get, but if you're an Avira fan or can live within the limits of the free plan then it might be worth a look.
