Happy VPN is brought to you by a United States based company. Established in 2007, the company offers a full-fledged VPN service that allows you to secure your internet connection and bypass all restrictions with ease. In this in-depth Happy VPN Review, we look at all the features provided by the company and decide whether the service is worth its monthly subscription price.

Server Locations

Currently Happy VPN has servers in 5 different countries – United States, Germany, Canada, United Kingdom and Hong Kong. Even though the number of server locations is on a lower side, using the service allows you to unblock sites like ABC, CBS, Fox, Amazon Prime, iTV Player, Hulu, HBO Go, Pandora, Netflix, BBC iPlayer etc. that are available only within certain countries. Happy VPN also allows you to bypass strict censorship imposed by countries like China, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and UAE and unlock sites like Facebook, Gmail, Skype, Twitter, YouTube, Blogger etc. from any location.

Speed and Bandwidth

Happy VPN does not impose any kind of speed or bandwidth restriction upon its users. By using the company’s unlimited plans, you are free to download content, make VOIP calls, stream TV shows and movies as well as play online games without worrying about speed or bandwidth restrictions. However the company does not allow peer-to-peer sharing or torrenting activities so it is not the best solution for people looking for an anonymous VPN service for carrying out P2P activities.

Happy VPN Privacy Rating

Happy VPN does not store logs or monitor user traffic. They just keep a log of login time and bandwidth usage for few days after which the information is permanently deleted. The company uses powerful encryption techniques to protect your privacy and data from ISPs, network administrators and hackers. The service also provides extremely secure solution for securing your Wi-Fi sessions from low security Wi-Fi spots prevalent at airports, book shops, cafes, malls and hotels.

Supported Systems

The Happy VPN service is available for most common computing and mobile devices. For Windows 7/8/XP/Vista based computers, the company offers a proprietary VPN solution that can be installed and configured within minutes. For other devices and operating systems like iPads, iPhones, Mac and Linux based computers as well as Android Smartphones, the company provides detailed instructions on how to configure the service through L2TP and PPTP protocols. It is also possible to use this VPN service with Xbox 360, Apple TV, Smart TVs, PS3 through DD-WRT routers.

ISPs from many countries like Oman and Belize ban VPN services by blocking PPTP and L2TP protocols. This makes it impossible for most VPN providers to offer services in such countries because a lot of VPN providers rely on L2TP or PPTP to deliver their services. Happy VPN delivers its service through SSTP protocol in such countries that allows people to unlock services and bypass censorship even if PPTP and L2TP protocols are blocked.

Customer Support

Happy VPN offers customer support through 24 X 7 email based support system. To resolve technical issues, you can also refer to the knowledgebase section available on the company’s website that offers detailed solutions for common technical problems.

Pricing Options

Happy VPN offers country specific (US, UK, German, Hong Kong, Canadian) VPN plans starting from $14.99 a month. It is also possible to save money by subscribing to long term VPN plans ($39.99 for 3 months and $74.99 for 6 months) and by using Happy VPN coupons. The company also offers a multiple location VPN service that provides access to both US and UK servers starting from $19.99 a month ($49.99 for 3 months, $89.99 for 6 months). Even though the service appears expensive, the company provides excellent security and speeds that makes it worth subscribing. For those who are looking for a free trial, the company offers a 30 day money back guarantee that allows you to test the service at its full potential.

Final Verdict

Overall, Happy VPN scores pretty well on most parameters. Even though the company offers limited choice of server locations and does not support P2P activities, they deliver a pretty solid VPN service that provides anonymity and allows you to bypass all kind of location and ISP based restrictions. So if you are looking for a reliable VPN provider that offers best speeds and total privacy, make sure to check the VPN plans offered by Happy VPN.
