[SERVICE HAS CLOSED]

SecureVPN Co (securevpn.co) was a US-based service provider that offers privacy solutions to its customers. The company launched its service in 2011 with just US and UK based servers but over the last 3 years, it has expanded its operations at several more locations. In this detailed SecureVPN Co Review, you will discover the features offered by the SecureVPN Co service.

Server Locations and Site Access – SecureVPN Co has VPN servers in 4 countries including United States, United Kingdom, Japan and Italy. The protocol wise distribution of the company’s servers is as follows:

OpenVPN Servers

Los Angeles, USA
New York, USA
United Kingdom
Italy
Tokyo

PPTP Servers

New York
Los Angeles
United Kingdom

The service makes it easy to access On-Demand premium services from US, UK, Italy and Japan from any location in the world. In particular, you would be able to access On-Demand sites like BBC iPlayer, USA Network, Netflix, Fox, Pandora, Lovefilm, Rai TV, TV Japan, Eurosport, Hulu, TV Asahi, 4OD, Amazon Prime, Xfinity, CWTV, HBO Go, ABC, iTV, Demand 5, NBC, Vudu, MTV, NHL, Vevo, TV Tokyo, MLB and CBS from everywhere as well as unlock Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, YouTube and Skype from China, Middle East and Latin America. The company allows unlimited server switching within its network so you can unlock local content from 4 different countries with just one subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth – SecureVPN Co did not restrict speed or bandwidth so the service should be ideal for activities like streaming, downloading, VOIP and gaming. However, there is not much information available about the company’s server infrastructure so the actual speeds might vary depending on the speed delivered by your ISP as well as your current location.

Privacy Settings – SecureVPN Co secures your privacy through PPTP and OpenVPN protocols. While the PPTP protocol is one of the oldest VPN protocols that supports fast speeds (albeit with a lower level of security) for all kinds of devices, the OpenVPN protocol offers a superior level of security for mostly desktop computers. The service protects your online activities (browsing, VOIP, IRC, emailing etc) from surveillance and security threats and secures your important data (passwords, social accounts, financial transactions) so that you do not become a victim of data or identity theft while using a Wi-Fi hotspot at a mall, airport, hotel or coffee shop.

The company has not published its logging policy on its website so it is not clear what kind of logs the company captures behind the scenes. However, since the company is based in US, it is safe to assume that the company will reveal customer details if it is served with a court notice.

Supported Operating Systems – SecureVPN Co VPN works with Windows, Mac, iPads, iPhones and Android devices. The company does not provide its own client so you would need to configure the service manually by referring to the setup instructions provided by the company. However, the setup instructions are not available for mobile devices so you must refer to other sources if you wish to use the service from your Smartphone or tablet.

Customer Support – The company offers customer support through live chat and email. Since the company has not published any kind of troubleshooting information on its website, you would need to contact the support staff even for small VPN errors.

Pricing Options – SecureVPN Co plans are available from $5.99 per month. The company does not offer term discounts but it is possible to save money by using SecureVPN Co promo codes. The company accepts payments through PayPal and Credit Cards so it is not possible to subscribe to the service anonymously. The company does not offer free trials but all new subscriptions are covered by a 7 day money back guarantee.

Final Verdict – On the whole, SecureVPN Co does not look like a serious VPN player. The company’s official website doesn’t inspire confidence since it does not contain much information about the service. As such, we recommend the readers to stay away from the service.
