VIP72 VPN is a privacy solution from VIP Technologies, a US based security company. Apart from VPN, the company also offers Proxy and Socks proxy services to its customers. In this detailed VIP72 VPN Review, we will focus on the pros and cons of using the service and decide if it is worth a shot.

Server Locations and Site Access

VIP72 VPN offers an impressive choice of VPN gateways. The company has deployed its servers in 14 different countries including United Kingdom, United States, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Czech Republic, Panama, Malaysia, France, Belgium and Latvia.

By connecting to VIP72’s servers, customers would be able to unblock IP-restricted premium sites such as Netflix, Zattoo, Spotify, FOX, BBC iPlayer, Hulu, Wilmaa, Demand 5, Canal+, Lovefilm, Amazon Prime, ABC Player, Sky Go, RTL, Viasat, Deezer, HBO Go, Arte, Eurosport, iTV, Direct 8, Rara, Pandora, 4OD, Voddler, CBS, Xfinity, USA Network, MLB, NBC, MTV, TNT, NHL, Vevo, Vudu and CWTV from any network or location in the world. Additionally, the service provides a handy anti-censorship solution and allows you to bypass all kinds of censorship and unlock Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Gmail and YouTube from your organization, university or a location like China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE and Brazil.

The service does not come with server switching restrictions so you are free to access any server without paying anything extra.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

VIP72 VPN delivers high speed without imposing any kind of bandwidth limit. This makes the service well-suited for activities like streaming of TV shows and movies in High Definition, VOIP calls, downloading huge files and playing multiplayer games online.

Privacy Settings

VIP72 delivers its VPN service via the OpenVPN protocol. As privacy conscious users are already aware, using an OpenVPN based VPN service is one of the best ways to secure privacy on the internet. The service uses 1024 bit encryption which is quite secure and cannot be breached even by sophisticated hacking techniques. The service protects all kinds of online sessions (FTP, browsing, VOIP, emailing and IM) from hacking and surveillance threats even if you connect to the internet via an unsecured wireless connection.

As far as logging policy is concerned, VIP72 does not record or keep a history of online activities. Although the company respects the privacy of all subscribers, it may reveal customer details to comply with a court notice.

Supported Operating Systems

As of now, VIP72 VPN works only with desktop systems running on Windows, Mac OS, Linux and FreeBSD. The company offers a customized version of OpenVPN client which is easy to download and install. However, for certain systems like Linux and BSD, you would need to configure the service manually. VIP72 even offers extra security through DoubleVPN which routes your traffic through two layers of VPN servers. This feature can help those who are really paranoid about their online privacy.

Customer Support

VIP72 offers customer support through ICQ, Jabber, Yahoo Messenger and email. Since the company has not published any troubleshooting information on its site, customers would need to contact the support staff even for minor issues.

Pricing Options

VIP72 unlimited plans are available from $9/week, $25/month and $265/year. For those who need access to both proxies and VPN, the company offers a combo Socks Proxy+VPN plans. Although the company does not offer free trial or refunds, it does provide free access to a Germany based demo server.

Final Verdict

VIP72 clearly delivers a professional VPN service. However, the service is quite expensive and the features on offer do not justify the high price. We recommend the customers to stay away from the VIP72 VPN and subscribe to a more pocket friendly service instead. For more information, please visit: www.vip72.com.
