VPN Proxy Master is not a safe VPN. The software logs too much user internet data, it's slow, and the company has disappointing customer support. The VPN lacks important security features, and we even detected dangerous functions and malware within the Android app. In short, we strongly discourage anyone from using VPN Proxy Master.

VPN Proxy Master is a popular free VPN, but it’s actually not a safe VPN to use.

In our in-depth security tests, we detected malicious malware, which immediately raised a red flag, and detected invasive functions in its Android application.

Furthermore, the VPN doesn’t offer a kill switch. If your VPN connection drops, your IP address and internet activity will be leaked.

EXPERT ADVICE: Private Internet Access (PIA) is much faster and safer than VPN Proxy Master. It also unblocks many popular websites and applications. Try PIA VPN risk-free for 30 days.

Privacy & Logging Policy

Worrying Links to China

How is this calculated?

We analyze and dissect the VPN service’s logging and privacy policy. A VPN should never log and store:

  • Your real IP address
  • Connection timestamps
  • DNS requests

Headquarters outside of 14 Eyes or EU jurisdictions are also preferable.

VPN Proxy Master is owned by a company with ties to the ruling Chinese Communist Party. It has recently improved its logging policy, but still logs too much unnecessary data. This VPN will also sell your data to advertising partners. The VPN service isn't trustworthy or private enough for us to recommend.

Ranked #37 out of 55 VPNs for Privacy & Logging Policy

Here’s a table showing all the information that VPN Proxy Master logs:

Data TypeLogged by VPN Proxy Master
Browsing ActivityNo
Device InformationYes
DNS QueriesNo
Individual Bandwidth UsageYes
Individual Connection TimestampsNo
Number of Simultaneous ConnectionsNo
Originating IP AddressNo
Account InformationYes
VPN Server IPNo
VPN Server LocationYes
Date of Last ConnectionNo

Ever since Lemon Clove acquired VPN Proxy Master, we’ve seen some improvements to its logging policy. It used to log your IP address and connection timestamps without aggregating or anonymizing the data at all.

Now VPN Proxy Master saves data mentioned in the table above, but “abstracts it” in order to maintain its service. Some VPNs do need to save certain data points, like your username, passwords, and payment information, to maintain a service.

But we’ve seen many other VPN maintain their service without requiring to hand over so much data. We’re still uncomfortable with the fact that it logs your internet service provider and the location of the VPN server you connect to.

But VPN Proxy Master doesn’t keep the worst kinds of logs (activity logs), such as the websites or services you access when using the VPN and timestamps that can identify specific users.

Importantly, we’d like to see VPN Proxy Master conduct an independent audit of its logging policy and app security, to ensure that all data is being properly aggregated and deleted.

Free Version Allows Advertiser Tracking

In its Privacy Policy, VPN Proxy Master openly states that anyone using its free service may be subject to third-party tracking. Some of its advertising partners include: Facebook, AdMob, UnityAD, Vungle, and Smaato.

These companies can “set and access their own cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies on our services.”

It also states that VPN Proxy Master shares aggregated data points it collects with these advertising partners.

In summary, a a great number of free VPNs, including VPN Proxy Master, end up making their money back by selling on your data and giving advertisers permission to track you.

Who Owns VPN Proxy Master?

VPN Proxy Master has a complex corporate structure behind it. The company now in charge is Lemon Clove Pte. Limited, but it used to be Innovative Connecting PTE. Limited.

For all intents and purposes, these are the same company. They even have identical websites.

Research by Security Affairs showed the same email address registered both websites, as well as the websites for Turbo VPN, VPN Robot, VPN Monster, and VPN Snap. Snap Master VPN is also the same app as VPN Proxy Master, just with a different name.

There’s not a lot of information offered on these websites, but Lemon Clove is based at 8 Marina View, #42-099, Asia Square Tower 1, Singapore.

But the director of Lemon Clove/Innovative Connecting is Danian Chen, a Chinese national described by Fortune China as “one of the most influential young leaders in China.” Chen is the Founder and CEO of Linksure, which launched the very successful WiFi Master Key app, and he is one of the richest men in China.

This looks very suspicious. To be a successful business or businessman in China you typically have to fully co-operate with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Chinese military.

All Connected Co. is listed as the developer of VPN Proxy Master, and is a subsidiary of Innovative Connecting.

All Connected Co. is also based in Singapore, but our VPN investigations revealed that, like Innovative Connecting, it also has links to mainland China.

Singapore is a partner in an intelligence coalition called SIGINT Seniors Pacific. This also includes India, South Korea, and Thailand. It is led by the United States’ National Security Agency (NSA), making it an extension of the US surveillance apparatus.

We recommend opting for a VPN service headquartered in a country that has no legal claim on your personal information, and doesn’t engage in extensive state snooping.

Security & Technical Features

No Security Features & Malware Detected

How is this calculated?

A secure VPN must offer OpenVPN or WireGuard protocols, AES-256 encryption, and a working kill switch.

To calculate this rating, we also factor in additional security settings and features.

VPN Proxy Master uses OpenVPN protocol and AES-256 encryption. This is good stuff. The problem is that this is all it has. There is no kill switch, which is essential for any VPN. We also detected some malicious malware when investigating the app. You should avoid this VPN.

We didn’t detect any DNS or IP leaks while testing VPN Proxy Master, which is encouraging.

The details of its encryption and security protocols are hard to find, but VPN Proxy Master references OpenVPN within its website FAQs.

This is good news, as OpenVPN is the security standard we like to see.

We contacted VPN Proxy Master to find out more. It replied by confirming it uses OpenVPN and AES-256 encryption. This is the industry-standard level of security you should expect from any good VPN.

Email exchange with VPN Proxy Master Support

However, that’s all the good we have to say about it, because VPN Proxy Master has absolutely no additional security features. Its app offers no options or details at all regarding customizable features or encryption settings.

There is no kill switch, which we consider an essential feature for any safe VPN service. Without it, you risk exposing your true IP address if your internet connection drops.

Our free VPN investigations update also detected invasive functions and malware within VPN Proxy Master. Make no mistake: this is an unsafe and dangerous VPN that you should avoid.

If you want to use VPN Proxy Master to protect your device, beware that you may well end up putting yourself at greater risk.


Slow VPN Connection Speeds

How is this calculated?

We calculate the VPN’s speed rating using our download speeds, upload speeds, and ping (latency) measurements.

We regularly test the VPN’s local and international speeds using a dedicated 100Mbps internet connection in New York, USA.

VPN Proxy Master's speeds are disappointing, reaching just 93Mbps on a 100Mbps local US connection. Though slower than average speeds are to be expected from a free VPN service, there are other free VPNs, like Windscribe Free, that deliver speeds up to 90Mbps on a local connection.

Ranked #43 out of 55 VPNs for Speed

VPN Proxy Master delivers speeds far below average. Check out the results here:

As our manual speed test data shows, VPN Proxy Master is a very slow VPN. Using our 100Mbps internet connection, we recorded an average 16% drop in speeds when connecting to international servers.

Even when connecting to local servers in the US, we were only able to achieve speeds up to 93Mbps on a 100Mbps baseline connection.

These speeds simply aren’t good enough for watching videos, gaming, or any medium-to-high intensive activity. At the bare minimum, it might be able to load simple web pages depending on your own internet speeds.

Awful Ping Times

In our 2023 recent speed tests, we saw ping times jump up to 6ms when connected to a local server in the US and 55ms when connected to Canada.

We simply do not recommend VPN Proxy Master for online gaming. There are many VPNs designed for online gaming, that have better download speeds and lower ping times available.


Does Not Work With US Netflix

How is this calculated?

This rating is calculated by how many different streaming services and regional content libraries the VPN can unblock, and how consistently it can access them.

We test access to Netflix, Disney+, Max, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, and many more platforms on a weekly basis.

VPN Proxy Master could unblock BBC iPlayer but the service has since removed its UK server, meaning that users abroad can't access British TV any longer. Its US servers don't work to unblock Netflix or HBO Max, either. As it stands, VPN Proxy Master is unable to stream anything except for YouTube.

Ranked #45 out of 55 VPNs for Streaming

VPN Proxy Master advertises itself as a VPN for streaming. However, our most recent tests found the VPN did not work to unblock or stream Netflix on either of its five US servers.

Its single server option on iOS means you can’t access any popular streaming services outside of your home country.

Since the Android version of VPN Proxy Master removed its UK server users can no longer access BBC iPlayer, either. This is a great shame as it has worked with British TV for some time.

However, its slow speeds and unreliable customer support mean it’s still not a very good VPN for streaming.


Torrenting Is Banned

How is this calculated?

This rating is determined by the VPN’s torrenting speeds, the percentage of servers that allow P2P file sharing, the service’s privacy and trustworthiness, and useful settings like port forwarding.

For speed specifically, we calculate the VPN’s average download bitrate using our bespoke torrenting setup.

P2P activity on VPN Proxy Master servers is banned, meaning you can't torrent or file share using this free VPN. It's not a safe choice anyway: it logs too much data and there's no kill switch to prevent accidental IP exposures. It's also too slow for smooth downloads.

Ranked #48 out of 55 VPNs for Torrenting

Torrenting isn’t permitted on any of VPN Proxy Master’s free servers.

There’s no explanation as to why this is, but users that attempt any sort of P2P activity while connected to the VPN risk having their account deactivated.

Want a free VPN that actually lets you torrent? We’ve listed the very best free VPNs for torrenting here.

Server Locations

Minimal Server Options, Only One Location for iOS

How is this calculated?

The key factor for calculating this rating is the global spread and coverage of the VPN’s server network.

We also consider the total number of servers, the number of city-level servers, and the number of IP addresses available.

VPN Proxy Master has servers in five countries as well as five city options spread across the US. It's not a terrible selection considering that India is included to provide some international spread. However, the UK and Singapore servers have been removed, cutting the options down.

Ranked #46 out of 55 VPNs for Server Locations

5 Countries
Image of a city landscape
9 Cities

Not Disclosed IP Addresses

VPN Proxy Master’s website claims to have over 40 locations and over 6,000 secure servers across the globe.

Well, not for the (far more popular) free version. When using the iOS app you have only one option: to connect to the ‘Fastest Server’, which is in Germany.

When using Android, it’s slightly better: five countries, nine cities, and nine IP addresses. For this reason, it’s better to use VPN Proxy Master on Android if you have the choice.

The available countries are:

  • Canada (Toronto)
  • Germany (Frankfurt)
  • India (Doddaballapura)
  • Netherlands (Amsterdam)
  • United States (Las Vegas, Los Angeles,  Miami, Phoenix, Portland)

This is a decent free solution to covering the US – such a large country.

There is no coverage for South America or Africa, though. This is a big miss, and means anyone in these parts of the world should really think twice before using VPN Proxy Master.

Bypassing Web Censorship

Does Not Work in China

How is this calculated?

We routinely test if the VPN can bypass strict internet restrictions in China using our remote-access server in Shanghai.

Other important factors we consider include obfuscation technologies and the availability of servers in neighboring countries (for faster connections).

VPN Proxy Master won't work in China or less strict censoring countries like Turkey or the UAE. There hasn't been any investment into obfuscation tools and considering the company's links to China we aren't surprised that it's not genuinely interested in getting around government internet blocks.

Ranked #46 out of 55 VPNs for Bypassing Web Censorship

Without any obfuscation tools, it’s highly likely that VPN Proxy Master won’t work in China.

It’s pretty open about this, informing users in its website FAQ that:

“We’re sorry to inform you that our product is currently not available in China due to some policy reasons.”

It’s safe to assume that this will be the case with VPN Proxy Master in any other country with censored internet.

If you’re traveling to, or live in one of these countries, we’ve listed VPNs that work reliably in Turkey and the best VPNs for China.

Device & OS Compatibility

Available on Most Platforms

How is this rated?

A high-quality VPN should maintain functional, fully-featured applications and browser extensions for as many platforms and devices as possible.

Our ‘Device & OS Compatibility’ assessment contributes to the Ease of Use rating.

VPN Proxy Master is available on the major devices, including Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS, as well as Fire TV Stick. There’s also a free browser extension. It’s impressive to see a free service spread across so many platforms, but we don’t recommend installing any of them.


VPN Proxy Master is available on:

  1. Windows
  2. Mac
  3. iOS
  4. Android

You can connect up to five devices when using VPN Proxy Master. For a free service, this is a generous amount.

It’s available for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android devices. There’s also a free Fire TV app.

There are, however, no workarounds for games consoles or routers.

VPN Proxy Master also has a browser extension available as an add-on to Google Chrome.

With the logging policy as it is, we recommend against installing it, though.

Ease of Use

Basic Applications With Aggressive Advertising

How is this calculated?

This rating mainly consists of the user-friendliness and intuitiveness of setting up and regularly using the VPN.

We also factor in customization settings, as well as device and OS compatibility (see section above).

Both Android and iOS apps from VPN Proxy Master are basic, and therefore simple, but too basic. They're unpleasant to use due to the sheer volume of pop-up ads. There are no settings or features to speak of, either. This is as rudimentary as it gets.

Ranked #55 out of 55 VPNs for Ease of Use

How to Install & Set Up VPN Proxy Master

The iOS app for VPN Proxy Master is so simple that it’s barren.

All you can really do is press the big Earth button to connect to the single available server or to disconnect. There is nothing else.

Except for pop-up ads. There are lots of those. It’s often to be expected when using a free VPN service, but they are particularly annoying in this case, bombarded multiple times with the exits made hard to find.

There are no settings or obvious support options. You can offer ‘Feedback’ and through this contact VPN Proxy Master by offering your email.

The Android app is slightly different in design but equally useless. It is made as easy as can be to subscribe to premium but nothing else is available.

VPN Proxy Master offers a seven-day free trial if you subscribe to the Premium service. If you do, VPN Proxy Master will automatically renew and charge you if you don’t cancel within that time.

Customer Support

Slow and Unreliable Customer Support

How is this calculated?

This rating is based on our assessment of the VPN’s:

  • Live chat support
  • Email support
  • Online resources

Not every VPN offers all these support options, and they often vary in quality and response times.

VPN Proxy Master only has support through the 'Feedback' option within the app. The response was slow and a little generic, but helpful. We'd like to see proper online resources and FAQs for troubleshooting and information about the VPN.

To contact support you have one option: head to ‘Feedback’ in the app.

You can then send an email to the address vpnproxymaster-support@lemonclove.net.

We sent an email and got a response two-days later from ‘Master VPN Customer Service Department.’

Support answered our query with minimal fuss, to its credit. But it was just too slow to be useful.

There are no troubleshooting tips or in-depth FAQs. It does appear to have ‘Live chat’ option on its website, but nothing happens when you select it.

VPN Proxy Master’s support is lacking.

The Bottom Line

Is VPN Proxy Master Worth It?

We strongly advise steering clear of VPN Proxy Master. It’s had a recent update to make it slightly more appealing, but it’s still very slow, insecure, and not user-friendly compared to other free VPNs.

We’re concerned with its ownership links to China, as well as its lack of key security features like a kill switch.

The VPN’s speeds are also subpar, not good enough for video streaming or online gaming. Overall, there are much better VPNs available.

Alternatives to VPN Proxy Master

Proton VPN Free is the best free VPN on the market right now. Not only is it much safer than VPN Proxy Master, it doesn’t require you to add payment information on signup and has way more servers on offer.

It’s not free but Surfshark is one of the most affordable premium VPN services that you can find. For such a small cost the protections and benefits are great value.
