PureVPN Review

Hong Kong-based PureVPN has been in the VPN business since 2007, so it’s no surprise that it’s built up a lengthy list of features: 2,000+ self-managed servers across 140+ countries and 180+ locations, with apps for nearly everything, a wide choice of protocols, torrent support, DNS and IPv6 leak protection, a smart kill switch, split tunneling, and payment via Bitcoin if you need it.

Platform support is another highlight, with dedicated apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Linux, extensions for Chrome and Firefox, and more downloads and tutorials to help you set it up on routers, Kodi, Android TV, Amazon’s Fire TV Stick and more.

PureVPN is a Hong Kong based VPN provider that is specialized on high-speed servers optimized for streaming and downloading. PureVPN is an excellent VPN if the only reason you want to use a VPN is for streaming and accessing unique content from particular countries.

This is because it has servers and IP addresses from a total of 140 countries which is extremely high. Another good part is that it has several severs, up to even a dozen in most of these countries. Most of these versers are high-speed servers, so you won’t experience any lag or decreased browsing speeds.

However, PureVPN has a major downside too, especially if you are interested in using a VPN for privacy reasons.

Pricing and Plans

You can choose between 3 price points at PureVPN, which is monthly, yearly and biannually. The standard prices are $10.95 per month if paid monthly; $4.95 per month is pre-paid for a full year and $2.88 per month if pre-paid for 2 years.
All 3 price plans come with a 7 days money-back guarantee.

Features

PureVPN has 500+ servers in 141 countries, including US, UK, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and many more. As mentioned earlier, PureVPN is one of the few VPN providers with servers in China. PureVPN supports the following connection protocols: PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN. Please note that the its Mac client only support PPTP and L2TP (Users can set up OpenVPN manually on a Mac), while its Window client does support OpenVPN.

PureVPN provides free VPN software for Windows, Mac, Linux, IOS and Android. It also provides instructions on manual VPN set up, including on other devices such as Boxee, Ruko, PS3, Apple TV etc.

PureVPN supports unlimited data transfer and unlimited server switching and claims to offer a 99.99% uptime. PureVPN has a useful feature called Split Tunneling, which allows users to choose which data to send through VPN and which data not to go through VPN. Note that this feature is available to PureVPN’s Windows client, but not available for Mac. As for P2P and file-sharing, PureVPN allows this kind of traffic on a number of servers while prohibits it on servers located in countries such as US, UK, Canada, Australia etc.

Recently PureVPN added a new feature called Virtual Router, which allows users to convert their desktop or laptop computer into a virtual router and use it to connect up to 10 devices. Currently, the virtual router feature is only available on PureVPN’s Windows desktop application.

Customer Support

On PureVPN’s website, there’s a live chat window for visitors and users to connect to their support team directly. We tried using live chat to talk to their support representative a number of times and every time we were able to get connected almost immediately and got our questions answered.

PureVPN  Review Conclusion

StrongVPN doesn’t have many features, and our signup issues were a concern. It’s great value if you’ll use the SugarSync space, though, and WireGuard support along with the ability to connect up to 12 devices simultaneously are also appealing. Worth checking out.
