SoloVPN Review – A Mobile-Only VPN Solution

Friday, June 13th, 2014

SoloVPN is a mobile-only privacy solution. The service made its debut in 2013 and since then its app has been downloaded more than 100,000+ times on Google Play store. This SoloVPN Review will reveal the most important features of the service so that you can make your subscription decision.

Server Locations and Site Access

SoloVPN has servers in just 2 countries – United States and United Kingdom. While the number of gateways is definitely on the lower side, the service makes it extremely easy to unlock US and UK based premium services from anywhere in the world. Once you connect to the service, you would be able to unblock GEO-IP restricted On-Demand services like ABC Player, BBC iPlayer, Netflix, iTV Player, Lovefilm, Amazon Prime, Vudu, Pandora, Demand 5, Hulu, Eurosport, CWTV, USA Network, MTV, UK TV, Xfinity, HBO Go, Sky Go, NBC, 4OD, FOX, STV, NHL, TNT, Vevo, CBS and MLB even if you are thousands of miles away from US or UK. What’s more, the service blocks the attempts of ISPs and network administrators to censor content and allows you to access your favorite sites like Twitter, Gmail, Twitter, Facebook and Skype even if they are blocked within your organization (or school/university) or country (as in China, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Qatar, Kuwait and UAE). The service allows unlimited server switching so you can access local content from both US and UK with just one VPN solution.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

SoloVPN does not restrict the speed or bandwidth availability to its subscribers. What’s more, the service allows you to save money and bandwidth through its Cloud Compressor technology. The service is well suited for activities like streaming, downloading, VOIP and gaming that demand a lot of speed and bandwidth.

Privacy Settings

SoloVPN relies on L2TP/IPSec protocol to secure the online activities of its subscribers. The service uses data encryption and secure tunneling technology to protect your unsecured wireless sessions from hackers and criminals. In addition, the service offers protection from surveillance and snooping techniques used by many governments and ISPs. And for those who need to secure their messaging, VOIP or emailing activities, SoloVPN offers a secure and cost-effective privacy solution.

SoloVPN does not keep a record of online activities of its users. Moreover, the company respects the privacy of its subscribers and it will not share user data with third parties unless the customer gives explicit permission to do so or if a court orders the company to reveal the details.

Supported Operating Systems

As of now, SoloVPN is available only for Android Smartphones and tablets. The company is planning to launch the service for iPads and iPhones in the near future. The company offers its own app so there is no need to set up the service manually. The app makes it easy to connect/disconnect and switch servers with just a single tap.

Customer Support

The company provides customer support through email. Since there is not much troubleshooting information available on the company’s site, you would need to contact the support staff even for minor technical issues.

Pricing Options

SoloVPN offers a 7 day free trial to all new customers. During the trial period, you can test the service with total privacy since there is no user registration required. If you are happy with the speed then you can upgrade by paying $4.99 for a month or $44.99 for a year.

Final Verdict

Overall, SoloVPN is a nifty little privacy service that delivers the goods. While the service is not without its limitations (gateways in just 2 countries, not available for desktops); it does offer a fast and secure VPN solution for Android users. So if you wish to secure your Wi-Fi sessions at public places or bypass all censorship or IP based limitations, test drive the SoloVPN service today. For more information, please visit: solovpn.com.
