Overview

Launched in 2012 by eVenture Ltd, hide.me allows you to connect a smartphone, PC, tablet or any other device to a secure network and access any website or application in the world, giving you complete Internet freedom. Based in Malaysia, this service is especially well suited to data-sensitive activities since the company is not subject to EU and U.S. data retention/disclosure laws. The VPN’s fast speeds are equally ideal for data-intensive activities such as HD video streaming and online gaming.

Privacy

As its name suggests, hide.me is eager to provide the utmost anonymity for its users. It has a strong zero log policy, meaning that it does not keep track of any of the online activities which its users carry out while connected. This means it is impossible for it to provide information on how its services have been used to third parties, avoiding legal liability of any kind.

Full AES-256 encryption is applied to all connections, meaning that even if you are using your smartphone to access a public Wi-Fi hotspot, you can be sure that your personal data is completely protected.

All of the major protocols which are required to provide internet access over a VPN (virtual private network) are supported by hide.me. IKEv1 and IKEv2 are compatible across most major platforms, including Windows and Linux, while the OpenVPN standard, PPTP, L2TP/IPsec and SoftEther are also on offer for those who need them. Each of these protocols has its own strengths and weaknesses, so it is worth researching them thoroughly if you want to find the most appropriate one to use in conjunction with a hide.me account.


 

Servers

hide.me currently operates servers in 24 countries, with each major continent covered by its VPN services. A total of 29 cities currently host servers from this provider, including London, Stockholm and Bucharest in Europe, as well as Seattle in the US and Tokyo in Japan. When you connect via the firm’s servers, you will be assigned a new IP which masks your location and also hides various other facts about your connection, including the browser you are using and any accounts to which you might be logged in. So even your own internet service provider (ISP) will not be able to see what you are doing online – everything is fully encrypted by hide.me.
