Why Choose IPVanish?

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

Most importantly, IPVanish is extremely safe to use. All the apps use AES-256 encryption, and a strict zero-logs policy applies to all servers in the network.

The VPN is very fast, too. IPVanish consistently registers quick download speeds in our VPN speed tests. The VPN’s download speed loss is only 10% 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 premium 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.

It’s also not a streaming VPN we can recommend at the moment. While it’s started unblocking content platforms again, it has struggled maintaining access for long periods of time.

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.
