IPVanish’s multi-platform flexibility and 40,000+ IP addresses are also great for people who are focused on finding a Netflix-friendly VPN. It is compatible with iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, Linux, routers, Amazon Fire devices, and all Android-based media devices.
Compared to VPN speed leaders like ExpressVPN, it’s tempting to call IPVanish’s speeds sluggish. In our speed tests, ExpressVPN reduced our speeds by less than 2% compared to IPVanish, which reduced our speeds by around 65%. But IPVanish regularly leaves high profile gamers like NordVPN for their money in the tests that ProPrivacy conducts three times a day. And IPVanish achieves those speeds with just 1,300 servers in 60 locations, compared to ExpressVPN’s 3,000+ server fleet in 160 locations.
While I appreciate that IPVanish comes with a standard kill switch feature, I’m always wary of a VPN headquartered in the US and reserve our higher recommendations for those outside of international intelligence chains like Five Eyes. I am also not as convinced of IPVanish’s leak security as other VPNs after reviewers of CNET’s sister publication ZDNet discovered a partial DNS leak during the test. I also still hope for an independent third party business review.
At $ 3.99 a month and $ 48 for a year, IPVanish is obviously trying to get you into its annual program. ExpressVPN can’t beat this price. It also recently changed its policy to offer a full 30-day money-back guarantee. However, the company receives high praise for its recent increase from five to ten concurrent connections.
IPVanish Review: This fast VPN has a great user interface.
