Why Choose IPVanish?

Our IPVanish tests confirm the VPN service is still one of the best VPNs available.

All of the service’s applications are extremely safe to use, employing AES-256 encryption, OpenVPN and Wireguard protocols, and a strict zero-logs policy.

IPVanish is very fast, too. The VPN consistently registers quick download speeds in our VPN speed tests. The VPN’s download speed loss is only 5% on short-distance connections.

IPVanish is particularly popular with Fire TV Stick, Android and Kodi users. The VPN’s Firestick app is ideal for anonymous streaming, and currently tops our overall Firestick VPN rankings.

Additionally, every IPVanish server allows P2P traffic. Combined with fast download speeds, this makes IPVanish a good VPN for torrenting, too.

What IPVanish can’t do well is beat strict internet filters, like those of the Great Firewall of China.

The VPN also hasn’t been a very reliable streaming VPN in the past. This has changed recently and IPVanish has improved considerably on this front.

The VPN service currently works with popular platforms such as American Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu. It still struggles to unblock Prime Video and Max, though.

Unblocking US Netflix with IPVanish

We were able to unblock US Netflix with IPVanish.

If you want to unblock streaming services without spending a dime (or even submitting payment details), try CyberGhost for free, instead.

IPVanish is nevertheless a very good VPN to trial. It will satisfy most privacy and security-conscious users.
