TotalVPN is relatively new to the market but in this short time, it has managed to make quite a name for itself in the virtual private network (VPN area. The main reason it is getting a lot of fame is because of its free package which offers most of the features that others require you to pay for. Another beauty of this tool is its user-friendliness. Every feature available is presented to you upfront, so that you can get up and running straight away. Just like other apps in the similar category, this one comes with a premium version as well which offers a slew of new features, but we will go in detail about them later on. Let’s kick off this TotalVPN review by first discussing how well data encryption works in this nifty tool.
As far as data encryption is concerned, TotalVPN includes PPTP, OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec and IkeV2. All of these encryptions have started to become a norm now as every other VPN is offering it. However, that does not mean that they are bad or anything. They work brilliantly and help keep your information and location hidden from government officials, snoopers and hackers. It even protects you when you’re using public Wi-Fi, a feat which is not present in most VPNs out there.
Data Logging Policy
Another great thing about TotalVPN is its data logging policy. It clearly states that it doesn’t monitor any of your activity, which means that nothing is logged and you’re free to do whatever it is you want. It hides you from the prying eyes and doesn’t spy on your activity itself, which makes it an ideal VPN platform.
Speed is where you have to pay to get the most out of it. If you use the free plan, then the bandwidth is limited to 2Mb and the data transfer is also limited. However, if you pay for the premium package, then you can get unlimited access to both of them. So, it really depends how much VPN activity you want. If you’re just looking to visit some blocked sites, then free package is a great deal. However, if you want to be on VPN the whole time, then it is recommended that you get the premium package.
Installing TotalVPN is easier than you think. Just go to their official website, select the plan you want to go with and you’re done. It’s just as simple as that – no hassle whatsoever.
If you go with the free plan, then you will be provided with an option to use three servers simultaneously i.e. Netherlands, Iceland, and Singapore. However, if you pay for the premium package, then you will be provided with 30+ server locations, allowing you switch between them at will.
TotalVPN was founded in 2014 which was just two years ago and in this time they came up with a new tool, introduced it to the market, and managed to establish a decent customer-base for itself. This just goes to show how committed they’re with their work and how much they’re willing to improve to stay ahead of the competition.
Customer support isn’t the strongest point of TotalVPN. This might be because they’re new to the market and are still adjusting. The support staff is present but sometimes, they aren’t much help. However, the company has been improving on each of their aspect, so it’s just a matter of time before they enhance their customer support service as well.
The free plan with limited services is available, but if you’re looking to get all the features and unlimited bandwidth, then you will need the premium package which requires you to pay $5.99/month.
