Identity Cloaker is an award winning “Internet Privacy Protection Service”. The provider is based in Prague, Czech Republic and has been offering privacy protection since 2006. Identity Cloaker uses private proxy servers and OpenVPN tunnels to secure privacy and identity which makes it a bit different from other VPN services. So let us check out the features of the service and decide if it is worth our time and money in our Identity Cloaker Review.

Server Locations & Site Access

Identity Cloaker has 28 servers (with 480 IPs) in 14 different countries. The company has a big presence in Europe and America and has deployed servers at United Kingdom, France, United States, Switzerland, Australia, Russia, Sweden, Netherlands, Spain, Poland, Canada, Ireland, Germany and Italy. By connecting to Identity Cloaker servers, it becomes possible to unblock American and European streaming content sites like Zattoo, Pandora, Demand 5, Spotify, CBC, ABC iView, BBC iPlayer, RTE Player, TSN, CBS, Xfinity, Eurosport, Netflix, Rai TV, Viasat, Amazon Prime, E!, Rara, CTV, Sky Go, Lovefilm, Canal+, HBO Go, Deezer, MTV, TNT, UK TV, Wilmaa, Voddler, Russia TV, RTL, Vevo, STV, USA Network, CWTV, Vudu, FOX, iTV, MLB, NHL, Hulu, NBC and 4OD from any part of the world. And since Identity Cloaker provides unrestricted access to all servers, you can unlock IP restricted sites from 14 different countries with just one account.

Expats, local citizens and tourists would also find the service useful for accessing blocked sites and online services like Skype, Facebook, Viber, GTalk, YouTube, Gmail and Twitter from China, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Bahrain.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth

Identity Cloaker allows 30 GB of data transfer per user per month. As far as connection speeds are concerned, there are no restrictions whatsoever for subscribers using private proxy servers but for users who wish to use OpenVPN, the upper speed limit is restricted to 2 MBPS. The provider has enough network capacity (100 Mbit+ ports with multiple terabytes of traffic allowance) to offer reliable connections and high speeds plus its system is flexible enough to increase capacity without sacrificing performance.

Privacy Settings

Identity Cloaker creates a 256 bit encrypted tunnel to protect your data from hackers, spammers and identity thieves. The service uses the same level of security that is being used by the US army to protect top secret information and the protection is available to all subscribers regardless of whether they connect via private proxy servers or OpenVPN. The service even hides your real IP and browsing sessions from marketers, search engines and your own ISP thus providing total online privacy and freedom.

Identity Cloaker does not store your browsing sessions but it does capture connection logs to maintain the quality of the service. The provider usually does not disclose subscriber information but it may be forced to do so if it is served with a judicial order.

Supported Operating Systems

Identity Cloaker works only on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 based systems. In order to use the service, you need to download a small application and run it from your computer (no installation is needed). The service can even run from a USB drive which makes it perfect for environments where admin access is not available to users. The service automatically protects Internet Explorer sessions but for Firefox, you need to install a small plugin. The provider is also developing a solution for Mac OS which should be available pretty soon.

Customer Support

Identity Cloaker provides support through email and tickets. Since the service does not need installation or a complicated configuration, you are not likely to run into many problems but if you face any issue, the support staff would be happy to sort it out.

Pricing Options

Identity Cloaker costs 12.97 Euros per month, 29.97 Euros for 3 months, 49.97 Euros for 6 months and 79.97 Euros for a year. The company offers a free demo account but it can only connect to a limited number of sites. If you want a full-fledged trial account then you can get 10 day access for 4.97 Euros. The provider offers a 14 day refund guarantee so you can test the service with total confidence.

Final Verdict

Identity Cloaker is one of the best privacy solutions out there. However, the service is very expensive for the features it provides plus it even limits the bandwidth available to the users. As a result, we recommend the service only to those users who do not want to compromise on security or privacy. For more information, please visit: www.identitycloaker.com.
