Privacy And Security Features
(Rating – 4 out of 5)

Like other big VPN companies, ibVPN takes the privacy of its customers seriously. Here is what you must know about the security features that come with an ibVPN subscription:

1) Protocols & Encryption – ibVPN offers its service through common VPN protocols such as L2TP/IPSec, PPTP, SSTP and OpenVPN. The company provides upto 256 bit encryption through L2TP and OpenVPN protocols which is considerably more secure than the 128 bit encryption offered by many other VPN companies.

2) Security at Public Wi-Fi hotspots – ibVPN makes it easy to secure your online sessions at public Wi-Fi hotspots. The wireless network services provided by commercial establishments such as malls, coffee shops, airports and restaurants are not considered secure which means hackers and sniffing programs can easily steal your data or money. ibVPN encrypts your data and creates a security shield around your wireless sessions so there is zero risk of losing data, money or identity while surfing the web at public places.

3) Censorship – ibVPN offers an easy way to bypass most types of firewalls, censorship, surveillance and monitoring. For example, if you want to bypass Chinese censorship and access Facebook, YouTube, Gmail and Twitter from the country or access VOIP services from Middle East or Latin America then ibVPN would be a good choice for you.

4) Logging Policy – ibVPN logs details of bandwidth consumed, duration of connection as well as time, date and location of connection for a week. The information collected is used to prevent abuse and enforce the company’s terms of service.

5) Data and Application Security – ibVPN encrypts your sensitive data so you can use the service to protect your financial transactions and shopping activities. Once you are connected to the service, even talented hackers and cyber criminals would not be able to steal your private data. The service shields all applications that connect to the internet so you don’t have to worry about losing your data through FTP, messaging, VOIP or emailing sessions.

Setup & Ease Of Use
(Rating – 4 out of 5)

ibVPN provides a proprietary VPN software for Mac, Windows, Android, iPhones and iPads. The intuitively deigned software allows you to log into the service with the click of a button and even check server load, switch servers and protocols and automatically reconnect when the connection is disrupted. The tool even includes a built-in DNS service allowing you to watch your favorite TV shows and movies without experiencing any buffering. However, the software does not provide the option of binding applications with it so your real IP address would be revealed when the service goes down and the software is attempting to reconnect to the VPN server.

The VPN solution can also be configured manually on computers, smartphones and tablets running on Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iOS. The service is also compatible with DDWRT and Sabai routers and the company even sells pre-loaded Sabai routers making it easy to use the service on gaming devices (Xbox, PS3, Wii), Smart TVs, Apple TV and other compatible devices. However, unlike many other big VPN companies, the company provides dynamic IP addresses to its subscribers which are easy to map to real IP addresses.
