The three main reasons to use a VPN connection are privacy protection, access to restricted sites, and traffic encryption. ibVPN All-In-One offers you these three services and then more. It is compatible with the PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, and SSTP protocols; provides SmartDNS for faster streaming; up to three simultaneous connections on different devices, and the possibility of choosing among more than 100 servers in 43 countries.
As its name implies, Invisible Browsing VPN (ibVPN for short) guarantees anonymous Internet navigation regardless of where you are and the device you’re using – a tablet, a mobile phone, a laptop, or a desktop computer. You can navigate simultaneously in up to three of these devices with one ibVPN account, and access to websites and services restricted to other users in your area without revealing your real IP. Designed to be of use for all kinds of users regardless of their technical skills, this tool offers a simple connection process that will reconnect automatically in case your current connection fails.
The program’s interface keeps you informed of the server you’re currently connected to, the protocol you’re using, and of the upload and download speeds at any given moment. As it usually happens with all VPN services – and ibVPN is no exception –, you may encounter occasional speed and reliability hiccups. Not all servers offer the same high-speed reliable connection, and that is why ibVPN offers you more than a hundred to choose from, and the possibility of switching servers quickly as often as you need. Besides the program’s auto re-connection feature, you can also configure KillSwitch to tell the program which apps or services should be shut down automatically whenever your VPN connection fails in order to protect your privacy.
As for speed, you need to be aware that the program’s 256-bit AES encryption will inevitably slow down your download and streaming speeds, so you’ll have to choose between making the most of your Internet connection or protecting your privacy. An alternative approach, fully integrated into ibVPN, is ibDNS. This service offers you full-speed streaming and download capabilities as per your Internet connection, but it won’t encrypt your traffic or hide your IP, thus compromising your privacy. If you value speed over anonymity, I would consider if paying for a VPN service simply to use its DNS solution is worth doing.
ibVPN All-In-One provides you with an integral service to hide your identity, access any restricted site, and protect your data with state-of-the-art encryption algorithms. It comes with all the drawbacks that all VPN services have to deal with in terms of speed and reliability, but it compensates that with a list of 100+ servers, an extremely easy-to-set-up interface, and some extra tools that you won’t find in most of its competitors.
