PD-Proxy is a privacy solution for Windows operating system. Launched in 2009, the service is brought to you by PD-Proxy LLC, a Philippines based company. This PD-Proxy VPN Review will explore the features offered by the service and disclose whether you should subscribe to it.

Server Locations and Site Access

PD-Proxy has deployed its gateways in 7 countries including United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Lithuania and Singapore. The Singapore server is reserved exclusively for online gaming but other servers can be used for a wide variety of online activities. By connecting to PD-Proxy’s servers, you would be able to access GEO-IP restricted On-Demand services like Netflix, Spotify, FOX, BBC iPlayer, CBS, Pandora, Hulu, Rara, Demand 5, ABC, USA Network, RTL, Russia TV, Deezer, NHL, MLB, Amazon Prime, Sky Go, HBO Go, Arte, Sat.1, Film1, Das Erste, NBC, MTV, Lovefilm, ProSieben, Eurosport, Sport1, RTVNH, WDR, AT5, TV Lab, Vox, CWTV, 4OD, Xfinity, UK TV, Vevo, TNT, Vudu, iTV and STV from any location in the world. Additionally, the service allows you to unlock Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, YouTube, Skype and Viber from China, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Qatar as well as from behind corporate and school firewalls. The company permits unlimited number of server switches so it is possible to unblock location restricted services from 6 different countries with just one VPN subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

PD-Proxy does not restrict bandwidth or throttle speed in any way (except for 100 MB/day limit for gaming sessions). This makes the service highly suitable for resource consuming activities like streaming, downloading, VOIP and gaming. On the downside, the company does not allow P2P activities through its network.

Privacy Settings

PD-Proxy has developed its own VPN protocol to overcome the limitations of PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN protocols. The service encrypts your data and routes your traffic through a secure tunnel so your online sessions remain totally safe from spying, surveillance, hacking and other forms of security attacks. The service not only protects your sensitive information (passwords, social accounts, bank login details, Credit Card numbers) from theft and misuse but also secures your unprotected Wi-Fi sessions from hacking and snooping threats. Moreover, the service is capable of protecting multiple types of online sessions (browsing, emailing, messaging, FTP and VOIP) with a single configuration.

PD-Proxy logs certain connection details (timestamp, location, duration and bandwidth consumption) to enforce its terms of service and to prevent illegal activities. The logs are recycled at regular intervals plus the company ensures that the customer information is never handed over to third parties or advertisers.

Supported Operating Systems

Unlike other VPN solutions that are compatible with a wide variety of operating systems and devices, PD-Proxy works only with Windows based computers. The company offers its own VPN client so you don’t have to manually configure anything or tweak any setting. The company also offers a separate VPN solution for Android (DroidVPN) so you can check that out if you want to secure your Android devices.

Customer Support

The company provides customer support through email. There is also a support forum available that can help you to browse through a list of common problems and troubleshoot errors on your own.

Pricing Options

PD-Proxy’s unlimited plans are available from $4.99 per month, $27.99 for 6months and $54.99 for a year. The company also offers a free trial but it comes with some serious limitations (256kb/s speed limit, 100MB/day bandwidth limit, access to just US based demo servers). The company has a 3 day refund policy in place but refunds are available only to those customers who consume less than 50 MB of data.

Final Verdict

Overall, we are satisfied with what PD-Proxy has to offer. Although the service is compatible only with Windows, it offers a fast and secure privacy solution to its customers.
