Protocols: OpenVPN, PPTP, IPSec/L2TP

Service: VPN4All provides a paid OpenVPN service with multiple servers in 50+ countries (80+ cities) with 10000+ IP addresses. You also get 1 Fixed IP included with each VPN account.

One-click Server and IP switching (absolutely free & unlimited). The client software is excellent and very user friendly.

P2P and file sharing is permitted on servers in certain locations, marked “P2P” (in yellow) in their server list. These include secure and anonymous VPN servers that are located in: Bulgaria, China, Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania and Russia. Note:There are NO P2P servers in the USA.

They are pretty hot on this and if you are connected via a ‘No-P2P’ server you may even find some torrent related sites blocked.

Includes Port Forwarding to improve file sharing/P2P and Stunnel SSL to get around restrictive firewalls like the China Firewall. And you can force change your IP on the fly without breaking your VPN connection.

With any plan you can connect with an unlimited number of devices so all your gadgets are covered.

New service: CryptoBrowser – a Free Encryption Tool for any Webmail or Social Media Messaging.

There is a trial account available and an unconditional 30-day money back guarantee.

Note: VPN4ALL gathers information about actual bandwidth usage per license number in order to control their pricing plans only. However, they do not cache, collect or store a user’s originating IP address or store information about which servers or the IP addresses on the VPN4ALL server network a user has connected to at a particular time or in general.

Coupon / Discount:* We have negotiated a special discount of 15% with VPN4All. Insert the VPN4All coupon code bvfu15 just before the checkout to receive your discount. (Alternatively, insert the coupon code bvfu5 to get $5 off.)

Our Thoughts: VPN4All is an excellent service with above average security. They are competitively priced if you go for the annual option and they offer great customer support. Their privacy policy is one of the most robust in the industry. They are not legally obliged to keep logs, so they don’t! Client software is intuitive and easy to use and packed with special features. Very highly recommended.

Tips: Urls with the word “torrent” are blocked on their non-P2P servers. This is a bit over the top in our opinion, but may be a flawed filter configuration (perhaps blocking “torrent” instead of “.torrent”?). But in any case, you can get around this in many instances by using the https:// version of a website instead of http://, if the site has it available. For example, http://torrentfreak.com is blocked, but https://torrentfreak.com works.

If you can’t connect to a server, try switching the software settings to TCP. Everything is UDP by default, which can sometimes have difficulty with the initial connection/handshake.

There’s a handy function on the software you can enable which allows you to change IP addresses while connected to a particular server.

    After much research, I signed up with VPN4ALL a few months ago. It has performed flawlessly since day one. I can only recall a couple of occasions when Seychelles location wasn’t available for a few hours. No problem at all. I went to an alternate location and was online within 15 seconds. I’ve gotten into the habit of verifying location after selecting a server. So far, it’s been accurate. Most importantly, I’m impressed with the speed. For whatever reason, upload speed is faster than my ISP upload speed when not signed on to VPN4ALL. The download speeds vary, but never too slow that I can’t watch YouTube vids in HD. I like to test speed using speedtest.net.
    It was a snap to setup and the software is very easy to use with great instructions, faq and help. The payment part is kind of a pain, but the tradeoff for tight security is worth it. Btw, my only issue is that if I use my default browser, Firefox, to open my account page, the page for whatever reason is so narrow that I can’t read all the fields that I need to see, making it impossible to submit a payment. I am forced to use IE browser which displays the account page perfectly.
    Still, I’d highly recommend VPN4ALL based on its first rate security, performance, ease of use and pricing options.

    For me the best vpn because of its advanced features. I can control every aspect of the process with this VPN. And the 12 month package is cheaper than the rest. As for torrents, I use it all the time and have no problems with it on their P2P servers. By keeping their non p2p servers IPs clean, this is by far the best service. Very few blacklisted IPs. The other top services allow their IPs to be blacklisted and then become quickly unusable. Its a pain to have to switch IPs all the time because they are blacklisted. This is a service that improves their product all the time. Been with them for 3 years now.

    VPN4ALL performs flawlessly for me. The best feature is the TRUE PRIVACY you get with this svc. So far, I haven’t experienced any slowdown in speed, even using distant servers. I use the Seychelles server, since it’s physically located in an area where I know they’re not required to log. I read (and this may be wrong) that if they have servers in a country where logging is required, then they (VPN4ALL) would have to comply with court order. So I don’t know if VPN4ALL can say they don’t log in the USA, if US laws require it. Please correct me if I’m wrong, otherwise I’ll stick with Seychelles as the safest server location.
    Lastly, I highly recommend this VPN service based on my experience with its excellent performance. Price is reasonable when you consider the expense of running a network like this.

    Grabbed the 3 month mobile package for my HTC Thunderbolt. I pass through a lot of wi-fi hotspots while travelling and I wanted security and reliabilty and thats what you get. very easy to set-up and use some may find it a bit pricey but for me peace of mind is worth the premium

    • Is VPN4ALL still performing well on your Thunderbolt? I have a Droid Bionic, but hesitated getting this, as I thought it might slow down performance. I’m very happy with it on my PC, though.
