VPN Unlimited is an attractively-priced, solid VPN that’s available on a wide range of platforms. Speeds on local connections are very good but performance across the network is a little less consistent, with sluggish latency and P2P limited to a very small number of servers. Access to Netflix and iPlayer is quick and hassle-free through servers optimized for video. User-friendly custom apps are available for loads of devices, including Amazon Fire TV, as well as routers. VPN Unlimited offers some solid privacy features but lacks a VPN killswitch on some platforms, which is disappointing. Its logging policy is vague and misleading, which isn’t ideal for a company based in the privacy-unfriendly US. The proprietary KeepSolid Wise protocol means the apps work in China, and customer support is informative and helpful but lacks live chat.

Price

VPN Unlimited offers a range of pricing plans to help you decide which is best for you. These all have the same features but the longer subscription you choose, the less you pay each month.

The most expensive option is the single month package at $9.99, but this is reduced by a 50% to a very affordable $5.00 if you sign up to the 12-month plan. VPN Unlimited is also one of the only providers we’ve seen that offers an Infinity subscription, and at just $199.99 it’s fantastic value for money if you’re planning on using a VPN for the foreseeable future.

Privacy and Security

There are a couple of things to pay attention to with VPN Unlimited in terms of privacy. First of all, it is not entirely obvious at first what the safety protocol of VPN Unlimited is. Nor the otherwise poor knowledgebase, nor the client itself provides sufficient information on this matter. In fact, there is no setting inside the Windows software that lets you select between safety protocols. This is because there is only type of protection for Windows: OpenVPN, with a 256-bit encryption. Mac OS X uses IPSec, and so are iOS applications, on 128-bit encryptions. We would appreciate some more accessible information on these crucial subjects.

The logging policy is VPN Unlimited is a curious case. Since the company is operated by KeepSolid Inc., it is the parent organization’s sentiments that are valid. Privacy policy states that the company “…does NOT collect and log any user activities while using any of their VPN services, except the total amount of web traffic for each session and session dates, for displaying them in user’s web cabinet and within the VPN client apps.” This is a bit more than occasionally seen, but it is still within acceptable lengths.

 

Number of servers

VPN Unlimited offers connection to 39 countries and 53 servers, with Canada and the USA receiving most of the attention in this matter. Some more frequently seen Asian destinations are also included like Hong Kong and Singapore, but Japan and Malaysia are similarly available. We would also like to highlight Chile, a country that is very rarely seen in VPN quarters. Overall, despite these fine choices, there is still a lack of locations somewhat. However, if you are searching for access to the more popular online destinations, VPN Unlimited is as good as any other provider. In terms of P2P support, only select servers allow it.

In terms of speeds, we can bring you much better news. VPN Unlimited’s greatest strength is the quickness of their connections. The most prominent phenomena we noticed is that long distance connections (for example from continent to continent) do not slow your progress down as much as elsewhere. We were generally satisfied with this part of VPN Unlimited.

 

Number of simultaneous connections

With one subscription you can use our VPN on up to 5 devices. You can use any device (desktop, tablets, mobile phones) and any platform (macOS, iOS, Android, Windows, Linux).

 

Supported devices

VPN Unlimited offers a good range of custom apps for the usual popular platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. They have also partnered with FlashRouters so you can buy pre-configured routers with the software already installed, saving you having to setup multiple apps on individual devices.

VPN Unlimited additionally provides a range of manual set-up guides for devices lacking dedicated apps such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick and Chromecast. There are also step-by-step instructions on how to manually configure your existing router to support the software, which are very user-friendly and include lots of helpful screenshots.

You can use VPN Unlimited on a range of games consoles and streaming devices either by connecting them to a configured router or sharing the VPN connection with another device already running the software, such as a laptop or smartphone. This includes devices such as Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick and TV and many more, which is where VPN Unlimited’s generous limit of 5 simultaneous connections really comes in handy.

There are extensive set-up guides for loads of these devices on the support section of the website which are incredibly easy to follow. It’s rare for a provider to offer so many manual workarounds for such a large range of streaming devices, and we love that VPN Unlimited has gone to so much effort to make the process as simple as possible.

 

Encryption way

VPN Unlimited encrypts your information with something called the Advanced Encryption Standard or AES.

This super secure encryption standard is the same one used by federal agencies to transmit sensitive data and it is, quite literally, the most secure symmetrical encryption standard in existence (at least that we know of).

It’s true that most VPN providers already use AES-256 to encrypt your data, but since security is one of the primary concerns when selecting a new service, this still counts as a “Pro” in my book.

If you peruse the list of different VPNs that we have reviewed, you will undoubtedly notice that most (if not all) of them offer the above VPN tunneling protocols.

So why in the world would I list this as a “Pro” for VPN Unlimited?

Because of one special little extension.

 

Free trial

VPN Unlimited offers both a free trial and a money-back guarantee. The free trial gives you full access to the service for 7 days, so you can check that you’re making the right choice before you hand over any of your payment details. All you have to do is create a KeepSolid account, click on the link in your verification email and you’re able to download and use the apps free of charge. Unlike many other providers, you’re not automatically upgraded to a paid subscription when the trial ends, which we love.

 

Refund period

If you aren’t completely satisfied with VPN Unlimited, you’re entitled to a full refund within the first 7 days. This is a genuine ‘no questions asked’ money-back guarantee with no hidden restrictions or data caps, making signing up to the service relatively risk-free.

 

Browser extension supported

VPN Unlimited also offers proxy extensions for Chrome and Firefox browsers. They are incredibly easy to download and use, and can be added to your browser in a matter of seconds if you already have the main app installed. As an added bonus they feature a WebRTC Leak Blocker, an extremely useful tool that helps to prevent a browser issue that could potentially expose your true IP address.

Whilst these are great additions to the main apps, it’s good to note that these are proxies rather than true VPN extensions, meaning they don’t encrypt your web traffic. A good choice for heavy browser users seeking a more lightweight experience.

 

 

Ease of Use

The interface on VPN Unlimited is incredibly easy to use.

After launching their software you are only one click away from anonymous browsing, and their simple sidebar allows you to quickly find exactly what you are looking for.

While some of the more advanced users might find their overly simplistic interface to be a turn-off, for most customers, this easy to use dashboard will provide everything that you need and more.

 

Payment method

VPN Unlimited accepts payment via most major credit and debit cards, PayPal and Bitcoin. Unfortunately unlike most other VPN providers you’re unable to pay using any international methods such as Alipay or UnionPay.

 

Online support

VPN Unlimited does not offer “unlimited” methods of communication of course, but you can still contact them and expect a response in a timely manner. E-mail is the preferred channel of exchange, but you can also find the company on various social media sites. Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Linkedln are all social media sites where you can encounter VPN Unlimited. The knowledgebase of the company is “blended” together with the FAQ section, or at least it is labeled as such. While setup processes are relatively simple, VPN Unlimited thus lacks an actual knowledgebase, as the FAQ is informative, not instructive.

 

Disadvantage

  • Limited P2P

  • Security concerns
