Everyone’s getting into the VPN business, even the adult website Pornhub. While their background might not seem like
a good fit for the VPN market, they’re dedicated to anonymity for their subscribers and non-subscribers alike. But
how good is a VPN that’s made by an adult site?
If you’re looking for an affordable VPN for your iOS or Android device, then you can’t get any better than free.
VPNhub provides a free plan with unlimited bandwidth, but only for mobile devices and only one a single US
If you want more options for devices and servers, you must pay for their premium service.
VPNhub’s month-to-month option is pricey. However, jumping for an annual package drops prices substantially.
They also offer a 7-day free trial if you want to try before you buy.
VPNhub covers the basics of Android, iOS, MacOS, and Windows but there’s no browser extension support. This means
you can’t use the service if you’re using a public computer.
Ease of Use
VPNhub’s interface is easy to navigate and simple. If you pay for the premium version, you have the option to change
your encryption protocol and location.
Reviewers note it’s very straightforward and perfect for those who are new to VPNs. If you want more customization,
you can access them through settings.
This is one area where VPNhub falls short. You can only connect up to three devices at the same time. Most paid VPNs allow up to five simultaneous connections.
Despite being relatively new to the VPN market, VPNhub provides a respectable set of features, such as:
- OpenVPN protocol
- Scramble option
- Free unlimited bandwidth (for Android and iOS)
- 825 servers in 18 countries (and counting)
Scramble allows you to hide you’re using a VPN. You’d use this feature if you’re trying to access things like Hulu
or Netflix in geo-restricted areas.
Privacy and Logging
If you’re looking to protect your identity, then you might want to choose another option. VPNhub’s services are in
the US. Not an ideal location for protecting personal data.
they collect aggregate or non-personal information to share with third parties for advertising, marketing, or
When used as an app, there’s even more privacy concerns as you pay via your Google or Apple account. This ties any
identifiable information on your main account to the VPN. VPNhub also asks for sensitive permissions from your
phone -- such as identity, contacts, device information, and photos.
While these are not enabled right now, reviewers worry there is an option to turn on these permissions later.
In general, reviewers were happy with the performance -- even with the free version.
Most servers were very fast. As expected, servers further away performed slower. Activating Scramble, lowered them
yet again. Still, reviewers had no trouble with HD video streaming.
VPNhub doesn’t offer customer support. There is no forum, live chat, phone support, or email functionality. If you
run into any issues with the service, you’ll need to check the FAQ. However, reviewers found the questions and
answers available limited.
If you’re looking for a simple VPN for your mobile device, VPNhub might be a good option. For those looking for a
more powerful service, other options offer better privacy and pricing.
TechRadar states, “VPNhub’s free unlimited bandwidth plan has some appeal… but potential privacy issues and buggy
clients make it hard to recommend.”
