SaferVPN has been featured in articles by major media outlets, including the BBC and the Guardian. It also offers round-the-clock support for customers so that issues can be addressed whenever they arise and wherever you happen to be based.

Speed

Speed is a crucial factor of how good a VPN is and to keep our users informed on how fast SaferVPN is across countries, we regularly carry out speed tests.

Privacy

SaferVPN operates a comprehensive zero-log policy, meaning that any activities that customers carry out via its servers will not be tracked or monitored. This includes the IP address via which customers initially connect to its VPN and the IP address assigned to customers once they are connected. Customers can use 3 different protocols to help customise the experience they receive, including mainstream options such as OpenVPN which are widely compatible with different devices, in addition to newer protocols such as IKEv2, which is quick and secure, if not as widely supported. 256-bit encryption is featured on its L2TP over IPSec for the utmost privacy and protection.

 


 

Servers

SaferVPN operates in excess of 400 servers across 30 countries, including the USA, the UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Australia and beyond. It has hundreds of IP addresses, with users randomly assigned one each time they connect to its VPN via whichever server is available in the country they select within the SaferVPN app. They also recently released a Chrome extension, which you can add directly from their website.
