PrivadoVPN Review


PrivadoVPN can protect your devices from malware, phishing and other online threats with ease, supporting up to 10 connections on one account and making it simple for you to protect all of your computers and mobile devices from threats like these.

PrivadoVPN is a Swiss VPN service with an excellent no-logs policy and strong encryption, as well as features including IP/DNS leak protection and physical servers to reduce security breaches.

Secure Connections

PrivadoVPN, though still relatively young, has already made waves in the VPN industry. Based out of Switzerland, PrivadoVPN boasts apps for Windows, Mac OSX, Android, iOS and Fire TV devices – not to mention an impressive network with 330 servers across 48 countries – smaller than many top providers such as ExpressVPN, Surfshark or Windscribe but still enough options for connecting worldwide.

PrivadoVPN utilizes 256-bit AES encryption technology to keep your data secure, the gold standard used by banks, global financial institutions, and governments to safeguard sensitive files. Even the fastest computer on Earth would need over 29 million trillion trillion billion years to break through its defenses!

This company boasts a solid no-logs policy and operates from within a country with strong privacy laws; however, no audits or transparency reports have been undertaken by this provider, raising some red flags. I would prefer if it provided more configurable kill switches, plus enhancements could be made to their app settings menu.

PrivadoVPN’s app experience has seen significant enhancements over recent months. Both iOS and Android apps now more consistently match each other when it comes to design and functionality; home screens on both feature a big connect button and server list with convenient filtering features that can narrow your choices by category; tapping any country instantly connects you with that server; unfortunately there’s no favorites or recents list which would provide further convenience.

PrivadoVPN apps allow for plenty of customization options, letting you select either OpenVPN or IKEv2 protocols and even altering the default port as necessary. Furthermore, their software is completely leakproof with no IP/DNS leaks present and even features a handy firewall to block unwanted connections.

Not to be missed is that the company offers an impressive money-back guarantee, giving you plenty of time to test their services before committing. Furthermore, you have three payment options – monthly, yearly or every two years; with the latter option proving most cost-effective over time.

Fast Connections

PrivadoVPN stands out with its impressive speed, particularly after adding WireGuard, but falls short in other areas. In our testing, connecting on Windows and iOS took 40+ seconds while many popular streaming platforms (such as Netflix and Disney+) did not work correctly with it. Still, PrivadoVPN still boasts many strengths despite these shortcoming.

Swiss provider Netigator stands out with its no-logs policy and solid encryption to minimize security breaches, as well as physical servers to minimize chances of security breaches. Their apps feature IP/DNS leak protection for easy use across devices.

Simple pricing structure of VPN Express includes an inclusive free plan offering 10GB per month across 12 server locations, while premium plans start from $3.99 with 30-day money-back guarantees.

PrivadoVPN stands out from competitors by allowing you to select your VPN protocol, making a significant impactful statement about its capabilities. OpenVPN offers maximum encryption while IKEv2 and WireGuard (which strike a balance between speed and security) can significantly outpace it in performance terms.

Android and iOS apps both feature an auto-connect function that instantly connects you with a server when you launch them, eliminating the need to manually select one. They also include recommended servers features which offer the fastest options depending on your location.

PrivadoVPN doesn’t boast the largest selection of VPN servers available, yet their selection is sufficient for most users. Their servers can be found worldwide, including those located in regions with tight internet restrictions; and it is compatible with major operating systems including Windows, macOS, and iOS.

Although its support hub is quite basic (ExpressVPN offers over 120 articles), I found its email ticketing system swift and efficient when tested. Furthermore, its apps include an easy kill switch button to prevent data loss if a connection goes down; unfortunately however, there’s no live chat support option – yet my question was answered within 70 minutes via this medium!

Easy to Use

PrivadoVPN apps for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS have been created with maximum user friendliness in mind. Their user-friendly design includes an intuitive small interface which utilizes every inch of screen space effectively while making navigation simple; options available to you include a kill switch. Using Split Tunneling features on certain apps allows you to select which will go through a VPN tunnel and which remain unprotected – this feature may prove especially useful for people with limited Internet speeds as it enables access to foreign sites or services not readily available locally.

When we tested it, we discovered it lived up to its promises of no logs storing IP addresses, web browsing histories or sensitive data; also physical servers reduce risks of security breaches compared to many other providers who don’t employ such stringent measures for protecting user data. This was certainly a plus point.

PrivadoVPN boasts effective leak protection that stops information from leaving its VPN tunnel, as our leak tests proved. Furthermore, PrivadoVPN features additional safety measures like IPv6 DNS Leak Protection and has an optional kill switch feature.

PrivadoVPN stands out from other VPNs by not requiring you to install software onto your computer or mobile device; rather, you can sign up online and protect up to 10 devices from one account – including routers! This makes for a cost-effective option when protecting an entire home network with multiple devices at once and reduces risk. Plus it’s great for families with multiple devices who share an internet connection!

PrivadoVPN provides a money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with its services, tutorials and setup guides, live chat support for questions as well as an option to download a free version and try its features before deciding to subscribe to paid subscription.


PrivadoVPN provides a generous data allowance with its free plan, making the service accessible across a range of devices. The software is user-friendly and intuitively designed; one useful feature is the kill switch, which shuts off internet access if a VPN connection fails, helping prevent data loss on devices connected locally if the VPN goes down but allows local network connections to stay active so shared files and printers remain accessible if necessary – although note that this kill switch doesn’t block all network traffic!

PrividoVPN supports various protocols, including OpenVPN, PPTP and IKEv2. PrividoVPN uses 256-bit AES encryption to secure your data against potential attackers who might attempt to decipher it. While no personal details are collected by this provider, device identifiers are collected so it can improve services and troubleshoot issues more efficiently.

The company boasts a small team that is capable of offering fast and effective support, both through its website and apps, including comprehensive FAQs as well as offering a money-back guarantee. There are also tutorials and guides available to get users up and running as quickly as possible, including setup guides for both Asus and DD-WRT routers.

Not the fastest VPN service around, but still delivers solid performance. While its free plan may only be suitable for light users, its paid plan offers competitively priced subscription plans with some nice features – works across various devices and supports multiple simultaneous connections!

PrivadoVPN goes beyond standard features to offer SOCKS5 proxy and an advanced kill switch to safeguard your privacy. The latter helps keep DNS leaks at bay by routing downloads through an extra server location to protect against leaks of IP addresses and DNS records.

It offers many servers across various locations. Unfortunately, however, it doesn’t offer many specialty servers and does not compare favourably with rival services like ExpressVPN (with over 3,000 servers in 94 countries) who offer greater variety. Furthermore, Turkey users who require anonymity online could benefit greatly from having dedicated server presence there.
