Blog

As 2016 comes to a close, what better time to look back and reflect on highlights of the last 12 months. It’s been a very good year for us, our company has grown with several new additions to our staff, and we’ve continued to make leaps and bounds in improving our products and services.

So – here are 10 highlights in 2016:

  1. In January we launched Speedify for Mobile and showcased it at CES and then at MWC.
  2. We continued our efforts to get the Cuban people connected to the Internet. In September we spoke at Cuba Internet Freedom Conference.
  3. April came with the first major review of Speedify Mobile on MacWorld.
  4. In July, USA Today wrote a nice article on how Connectify Hotspot helps travelers.
  5. We attended our first Affiliate Summit conference in New York at the beginning of August. We also held our first affiliates contest during August and September.
  6. As the world watched the Rio Olympics in August, we made it easier for all Speedify users to enjoy the games.
  7. Following the launch of Jio mobile service in India, local users started using Speedify to augment the cellular data speed using our unique channel bonding technology.
  8. In September we had another launch – after several months of working together with app design guru Loren Brichter, we rolled out Speedify 4.0 with a brand new unified cross-platform UI, new and improved features.
  9. Building on the momentum of Speedify 4.0, we had a final launch in 2016 – Speedify 5.0, adding encryption and localization to the table. Now Speedify truly is a complete solution to get the most out of your Internet connections.
  10. We went over quite a few milestones this year:
    • 150,000 active Speedify customers
    • 320 TB of traffic optimized by Speedify monthly

From all of us at Connectify, we wish you a happy and healthy new year!

WHAT’S IN THIS REVIEW?

Disclaimer: Partnerships & affiliate links help us create better content. Learn how.

The fastest car in the world is useless if you can’t reach your destination. With Speedify, you can certainly rev the engine impressively, but the bridge is up for the majority of online streaming services. 

Speedify’s VPN is appropriately named, and they even offer a Streaming Mode to prioritize traffic on your network. The problem is that it doesn’t actually unblock any online streaming services, so you won’t be able to watch U.S. Netflix outside of the country.

It’s the biggest drawback for a service that actually does have quite a lot to offer. As far as a VPN service goes, it’s still strong in our book. Read on in this Speedify VPN review to find out exactly what we thought of the service while testing.

Overview

Speedify is one of the fastest VPN providers I’ve reviewed recently, living up to their name thanks to a blisteringly connection to their servers. There’s a free tier that can mask up to 2GB of data per month, along with a number of additional benefits that we’ll get into below.  

It’s not the largest VPN by any means, despite originally being envisioned as a channel bonding service. Streaming limitations and a few minor issues hold it back from achieving a higher score, but it’s still very usable and comes in at an attractive price point.

About Speedify 

Based in the United States, Speedify is owned by CEO Alex Gizis, with the VPN falling under the Connectify umbrella. Originally envisioned as channel bonding software, Speedify was first released in 2014.

They added encryption on all supported platforms in 2016, turning it into a mobile virtual private network. Speedify still uses channel bonding as of 2021, allowing for faster connection speeds in theory. 

The VPN has positioned itself as a privacy/anti-censorship advocate, with their website saying:

“We believe in a free and open Internet for all. Access to the Internet should be considered a basic human right and we will continue our fight to secure these protections for everyone.”

Sounds good, right? There is one elephant in the room, which they sidestep neatly. Their About Us page continues;

“Additionally, in some countries outside the US, Internet freedom and privacy are non-existent. Popular websites are blocked and private information is far from secure.”

That’s undeniably true, but what about the U.S., since Speedify is located in Philadelphia? It’s not a great place to base a VPN service due to government agencies and lax privacy laws. 

It’s something to consider if securing your personal data is the most important reason behind your decision to use a VPN.

They do offer free software to counter censorship in countries across the globe, but I’d be more worried about the enemy within if you’re wary of government surveillance. 

Pros & Cons

To make things easier, we’ve carefully tallied the most important pros and cons we found while using Speedify to help you in your decision-making process.

pros

For Speedify, the pros do outweigh the cons in our assessment. In particular, here’s what we liked most:

  • Numerous additional privacy features
  • Blazing fast speeds from nearby servers
  • Supports P2P activities from some locations
  • Decent free trial version
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Channel bonding
  • Custom VPN protocol
  • Up to 5 simultaneous connections
  • Competitive pricing, especially on its longer-term plans
  • Frequent promotional deals for steeper discounts

cons

Despite the many perks Speedify offers, no VPN is absolutely perfect. We gathered everything that might raise concern for a user shopping around:

  • No capacity to unblock streaming websites
  • Based in the U.S. (Five Eyes)
  • Free version only offers 2GB of data per month
  • No third-party audit for logging claims
  • Lack of Wireguard support
  • Limited compatibility with platforms and devices

Features

Speedify features

Speedify has a number of notable features that separate it from the majority of VPNs on the market. We’ll give a rundown of the main ones below.

Streaming Mode 

By default, Speedify operates in Streaming Mode, which automatically identifies audio and video streams. It also: 

  • Prioritizes streaming traffic over other types of web traffic to provide QoS (quality of service). 
  • Monitors how much bandwidth your stream requires, and records statistics on how each of your internet connections is performing. 
  • Dynamically chooses the best way to send and receive traffic seamlessly over each available Internet connection. It enables redundancy if necessary to protect you against excessive packet loss.

The feature was added in 2020. It’ll be useful if you have slower speeds and want to avoid stuttering Zoom meetings or lagging games.

Channel Bonding 

Speedify’s Channel Bonding tech will allow you to “securely use multiple internet connections at the same time for increased bandwidth, lower latency, and better reliability.” 

A remnant from before the service became a VPN, it’s another handy feature if you suffer from high latency. On the other hand, it probably won’t be of much use to the average user, especially given the connection speeds I was able to achieve with their servers.

Regardless, it’s an interesting functionality and another notable perk that you won’t find elsewhere.

Free Version 

2G of data usage with Speedify's free plan

A free version of Speedify is available, although they only offer 2GB of data per month. You won’t have to make an account to try the service, even if 2GB is only going to be good for minimal use. 

It’s easy to download and setup, and unlike most free VPN versions, you get access to all of the features seen in the premium version.

Speedify privacy policy agreement

They also store personal data, including your IP and connection timestamps “to enforce their terms.” This may raise a few eyebrows for privacy sticklers. In any case, it’s a good way to test the service without having to commit in full.

Dedicated Servers

Speedify’s dedicated speed servers are only available for teams, so they’re of no use to the average commercial user. It would be nice to see them offering dedicated servers for everyone at a later date, even if it would be in the form of a paid extra. 

Pricing

  • 1 Month: $9.99/mo.
  • 12 Months: $5.99/mo. ($71.88 upfront)
  • 3 Years: $2.99/mo. ($107.64 upfront)
Speedify pricing and plans

They’re not exactly giving it away for free, but Speedify is one of the cheaper providers on the market when all is said and done. Their one-month plan comes in at $9.99 and can be used on up to five devices. 

The longer the contract, the cheaper the deal. So, 12 months is $5.99/mo., two years is $3.99/mo., and three years is $2.99/mo. (In any case, you have to pay the entire amount upfront.) Keep in mind that we do offer deals on Speedify as they come through.

However, Speedify is known for offering great promotional discounts throughout the year that brings their longest plan to a new low. When visiting the site, a pop-up ad offered up to 85% savings on Speedify’s 3-year plans.

After clicking into it, the discount took 50% off the Individual 3-Year Plan, which brought the total cost to $53.82 from $107.64. That equates to just $1.50/mo., which blows most top-rated VPNs out of the water.

They also offer a Family Plan that gives the user and four others separate accounts and can be used on 5 devices simultaneously. Again, it’s affordable, with one month priced at $14.99, while 12 months is $8.95/mo. or two years for $6.00/mo.

Lastly, the TeamsPlans allow for a large number of users where you can add a dedicated server. It’s $5.99 per user per month for the first year.

If you’re on the fence, there is an insurance policy so to speak. Speedify offers a 30-day money-back guarantee that can be redeemed as long as you haven’t been suspended for Terms of Service violations. 

However, they note that “no partial refunds will be awarded for the service period during which the user cancels the subscription; users will not be issued a refund for any portion of the current service month, but auto-renewal of their subscription will be canceled and no further charges will be owed for subsequent service months.”

Overall, Speedify is a great option if you’re working within a tight budget. 

Logging Policy

Speedify’s logging policy seems fair at first glance. Their website states:

“Speedify has a strict no-log VPN policy: we do not log what you do, what sites you visit, or what services you use while using the Speedify VPN service. Furthermore, Speedify will not rent or disclose your personal information to other companies.”

Their Privacy Policy goes on to clarify:

  • We have no record of the websites that you visit. We do not retain any of the data that you send or receive while using our services. 
  • All of that information vanishes from our systems as soon as it is transmitted
  • The personal information that we receive from you when communicating using Speedify is automatically deleted after six months.
  • Our backend servers and databases are encrypted and firewalled. Those servers are located in the United States in physically secure facilities with restricted access.
  • We do not provide any personal information to third parties.
  • We do not provide governments with access to our data (unless we are required to by law).

However, the Privacy Policy also mentions:

“When you use Speedify to communicate over the Internet we receive your IP address and Device ID. We also record at what time each connection begins, how long each connection lasts, and the amount of data used.” 

That’s a considerable amount of data for the company to be logging and recording, especially as they claim to be a privacy-focused provider. 

Connection logs are unnecessary, while it’s unclear why they would need your IP address. In any case, there are better options on the market if you’re looking for an airtight logging policy. We’d opt for any of the VPNs that have been independently audited, such as NordVPN, ExpressVPN, or VyprVPN.

Speed Stats

According to their website, Speedify’s public servers typically offer up to 200-300 Mbps speeds, but they “can vary based on the location of the server, the hosting provider, the performance of the server, and how well you can reach the server.” 

My normal connection speeds are slightly faster than the cap mentioned above, so I expected decent results from their VPN. I used Speedify’s built-in speed test at first, which gave an accurate enough reading:

reviewer's baseline speed results using Speedify's speed test

First up for testing were their U.K. servers, which are located in London.  

Speed test results on a London server

Results were brilliant for the most part, with the download speed coming in at just over 284 Mbps. It’s at the upper end of the 200-300 Mbps estimation, and comparable to some of the fastest providers I’ve tested in recent months. 

The ping was slightly higher than expected, but it was still good enough for tasks such as gaming and 4K streaming. 

Next up were their U.S. servers, so I connected to the optimal location in the country. 

Speed test results on a U.S. server

Ping was up into the low hundreds, but that’s to be expected if everything is working as it should be. However, speeds went down to 111 Mbps, which is less than a third of the baseline number. 

It’s undoubtedly a nifty VPN, especially when connecting to servers found nearby. However, results will vary depending on where you’re planning to connect to.

For example, here are results while I selected Australia, found on the other side of the world in relation to the U.K. where I’m based: 

Speed test results on an Australian server

Ping is up to a devastating 321, while the download speed is less than 50 Mbps. 

Yes, Speedify does have access to lightning-fast servers. No, they’re not consistent, and it’s dependent on the strength of their server network. At least you’ll be able to use the trial version to test it out for yourself.

Server Locations & Network

Speedify doesn’t have the largest list of locations to connect to, but it’s substantial. It has roughly 500 servers split across 35 countries. The current list of compatible regions is as follows: 

  • North America: USA, Canada 
  • South America: Brazil 
  • Europe: Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK
  • Asia/Oceania: Australia, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, UAE
  • Africa: South Africa 

It’s not an ideal option for users located in the Middle East or Africa, and the same is true for South America. As with many providers, Speedify has focused on the U.S. and Europe, so you may have to look elsewhere for a more comprehensive VPN. 

Streaming & Torrenting

Streaming & Torrenting Score

7/10

Streaming is a no-go, as their own support page freely admits: 

“Unlike other VPN services that can break Netflix, Disney+, HBO, Hulu, Peacock, and Amazon Prime, Speedify has the ability to allow you to use these services while being connected to a VPN. Please note that Speedify will not give you capabilities to access other Netflix countries or unblock Disney+, HBO, and Hulu.”

For example, I tested out BBC iPlayer, which didn’t work despite being connected to a UK-based server.

BBC iPlayer blocked on Speedify servers

It’s a shame considering the potential speeds they have on offer, and somewhat ironic considering their patented “Streaming Mode.”

Then again, it makes sense given their smaller server network. It’s great if you just want to watch content from your region, but don’t expect it to unblock Netflix.

Speedify streaming advertisement

They are torrent-friendly, as their Amsterdam server is optimized for BitTorrent and P2P activity. However, they note that:

“BitTorrent is not allowed on most of our Speed Servers, but there are some select servers that allow torrents and other P2P downloads. By clicking on the option Torrent Friendly Server from the Speed Server selection screen, you’ll be connected to an available torrent-friendly server.”

If accessing geo-restricted content is your primary reason for needing a VPN, you may want to look at other streaming VPNs.

Censorship

Speedify has actively taken part in combating censorship in the past, doing so most recently in Myanmar following sustained unrest in the region. 

CEO Alex Gizis took the opportunity to make a difference, saying:

“At the beginning of February 2021, a military junta deposed the democratically elected members of Myanmar’s ruling party, which led to an accelerated deterioration of internet freedoms, the new authorities ordered telecom operators to regularly switch off the internet and impose sweeping restrictions on websites, services, and apps to stifle free speech. We knew we needed to help preserve internet freedom.”

They committed to providing users in Myanmar with free 50 GB/mo. Speedify accounts, seeing an uptick from fewer than 100 users per day, to 490,000 in a single month. 

Speedify has also provided free data to users in Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela to combat government censorship in the past, which must have had an impact on people who saw everything from the internet turned off to highly restricted access. 

In the case of Myanmar, an extra 490,000 users in such a short period must have been a strain on resources, and it’s a commendable effort to fight censorship.

For this part, Speedify scores high in our book.

Platforms & Devices

One limitation we did notice was Speedify’s limited compatibility across platforms and devices. Speedify is only available on the following devices:

  • Windows
  • MacOS
  • Linux
  • iOS
  • Android 

Each has native app support, but it’s not the most comprehensive list if you’re hoping for exceptional compatibility. 

In fact, it’s a basic selection of apps, missing browser support and numerous devices like gaming consoles and routers.

The app itself was great to use, packed with information about the VPN connection and a display of basic usage stats. 

Speedify user stats

It might be a bit overwhelming for newbies, but it’s easy to keep up with how much data you’re using, and the download speeds being achieved at any given time. There’s also a Speedify speed test within the app, which I used in a section above.

The Speedify client app has a clean interface and lots of information about the connection, even if encryption options are slightly lacking.

Encryption & Security

In terms of security, Speedify’s bonding protocol is a custom protocol, while their “encryption and security is based on industry standards and leverages fast hardware acceleration to give the user maximum performance.”

A custom protocol may be the reason why I was able to get amazing speeds while the VPN was on, but that does mean that there’s no WireGuard support. 

You’re stuck with their custom protocol option, and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it would be great to be able to choose your own.  

For newer devices, they use “AES128-GCM encryption, leveraging the hardware instruction support for AES built into modern CPUs.”

It’s a decent setup, but as a proprietary protocol, you’ll only be able to use Speedify via one of the apps mentioned above. 

You can set a custom DNS server to use with your VPN connection. Examples include CloudFlare, Quad9, and AdGuard, with explanations for what each one does found within the app.

Final Thoughts

Overall, its name doesn’t disappoint. Speedify is fast. There’s no denying the power their servers can utilize, even if they don’t have many locations to draw upon. Unfortunately, speed alone won’t matter for the average user, especially if they want to unblock the most popular streaming platforms. 

They strongly advocate for privacy, but there’s no third-party audit of their software to be found. This makes it hard to trust Speedify, no matter their protests to the contrary. However, they have helped to combat censorship on multiple occasions, which does count for something.

Nonetheless, it’s a usable app by all means, even if it’s unable to unblock websites such as BBC iPlayer and Netflix. There are also lots of nifty features which help to set it apart from the majority of VPNs, such as channel bonding and a choice of custom DNS servers.

The price puts it firmly within the budget VPN range, but there is a trade-off in terms of entertainment options, as well as their somewhat limited server network. Want to check out some more affordable options? Take a look at all the VPN deals available today.

For anyone impacted by censorship, Speedify provides a worthwhile service, often free of charge. For users that are spoiled with choices, they’ll probably be disappointed by Speedify, especially if they were hoping to use the streaming mode on unblocked websites like Netflix.

It scores good marks for every category, but again, if streaming is of utmost importance to you, it may not be the best fit. All in all, it comes down to your unique user needs and preference.

Making use of a VPN almost always cuts your internet speeds, which is no real surprise given all that encryption overhead.

Speedify aims to fight this by sharing your internet traffic across any available connections: Ethernet, tethered mobile, Wi-Fi and more (up to 10 in total). If one connection type is slow, Speedify seamlessly moves some of your traffic to another, maximizing your bandwidth. All this happens in the background, entirely transparent to your applications, which carry on working just as they always did (except faster, hopefully).

You don't need multiple connections to use the service, it works just fine with one – although obviously in this case, you won't get the same channel bonding advantages. However, the company still claims its other connection technologies could help improve speeds.

Speedify has its own custom protocol, for instance (no OpenVPN or WireGuard support here), using the efficient ChaCha cipher to get fast results on even the oldest of devices, or AES128-GCM on devices where there's hardware support.

(If you're looking for the full technical detail, Speedify is based on DTLS 1.2 using TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, if hardware-supported, or TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256 for older devices.)

Yes, it's 'only' AES-128, but that doesn't mean your coffee shop browsing is suddenly at risk. AES-GCM is more secure than the AES-CBC used by many VPNs, and a 128-bit key gives you plenty of protection. See the Speedify support site for more, or check out Private Internet Access' more complete GGCM vs CBC explanation.

Speedify provides apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, keeping setup relatively easy. As Speedify uses a proprietary protocol, though, there's no way to manually set it up on routers, games consoles or other platforms. You can only use it through the official apps.

The company doesn't seem keen to publicize how many servers it has, but they're reasonably well distributed over 50+ locations and 35 countries. And not just in North America and Europe, either: there's also Brazil, India, Israel, Japan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and more.

The company warns that P2P 'is not allowed on most of our Speed Servers', but torrents are permitted on 'select servers.' For 'select', read 'not enough' – we tried three times to connect to a P2P-friendly server, and each time got a 'this server is at capacity' message, something we don't recall happening with any other P2P-supporting VPN.

Elsewhere, features include the ability to set your VPN DNS to several popular services: Cloudflare, AdGuard, OpenDNS, Google DNS and more.

Support for DNS over HTTPS may allow you to get connected in more places, even if they're actively blocking VPNs.

A Streaming Mode automatically identifies and prioritizes audio and video streams, reducing the chance that they'll be affected by downloads, browsing and anything else you're doing.

The new Speedify 11 apps use multiple TCP transport mode to optimize speeds even with a single internet connection. Smart header compression automatically shrinks the headers on data packets, and an iPerf3-powered integrated speed test tracks performance over time.

Support is available if you need it, but the support website is weak (the 'Using Speedify' section has articles on such technical topics as following the company on Twitter and buying new products at its store) and there's no live chat. You can fire off emails as required, though, and we've generally received helpful replies within an hour or two.

Speedify price and plans

Speedify offers a free plan, which apparently limits you to 2GB of data a month and use on a single device. We say 'apparently' because although it says that on the website, and it's the allowance we saw on a mobile device, a Windows setup claimed we had 5GB available.

Even at 2GB, that's just about enough to be useful. You don't have to register, hand over your email address or anything else, and the app doesn't have any restrictions, so the free plan is an ideal way to test the service basics (whether it is fast enough for you, or it can unblock a particular site or service, and so on).

Upgrading to the Individual plan gets you unlimited data and support for use on up to five devices.

Prices are reasonable at $9.99 billed monthly, $5.99 if you pay for a year upfront, $3.99 for two years, or $2.99 if you sign up for three. You can pay via card or PayPal (there's no Bitcoin option), and the company has a 30-day money-back guarantee.

That makes for a low headline figure, but if price is a priority, you can find cheaper deals elsewhere. Private Internet Access' annual plan is just $3.33 a month, for instance, and as we write, ZenMate's $1.64-a-month three-year plan costs significantly less than a year of Speedify ($59 vs $71.88).

Speedify has a potentially more interesting option in its Family plan. This enables up to 5 people to use it on up to 5 devices each, yet it still costs just $14.95 billed monthly. This falls to $8.95 on the annual plan, $6 over two years, $4.50 over three. If you'll use all five accounts, that's a spectacular $0.90 per month per user.

Businesses might benefit from a Teams plan. This supports adding as many users as you need at $9.99 each billed monthly, $5.99 on the annual plan, and throws in enterprise-friendly features such as centralized management, CLI and API access, and the option to purchase a dedicated VPN server for $75 a month.

Privacy and logging

The Speedify privacy policy is far clearer and more specific than most of the competition, going into great detail on what it collects, and what it doesn't.

The good news is that the company claims it doesn't keep a history of the sites you visit, or the content of the data you send or receive.

The bad news is that there's some session logging, including the Wi-Fi SSID of your network, your public IP address, your device ID, the time you connected, the amount of data transferred and the length of the session.

That could be enough to identify your approximate location and generate a unique identifier for your device, allowing it to be recognized next time. It's more logging than we would like, but it's also necessary to manage Speedify's free plan. (The company needs to track the data you use, and the device where you're using it, to keep you to the 2GB per device limit.)

While this isn't necessarily a problem, we're left to take it on trust that this is all Speedify does. Other VPNs are increasingly putting themselves through independent audits - TunnelBear now has its apps, website and infrastructure audited every year - to confirm that they're living up to their promises, and we'd like to see Speedify follow suit.

Apps

Trying Speedify is simple and hassle-free, especially if you're sampling the free plan. The Downloads page presents you with links to the Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS apps; we grabbed the Windows client, ran the installer, and it set itself up fully in a matter of seconds. An opening screen explained that we had 5GB of data for free (the website says you get 2GB, but we weren't complaining), and once we dismissed that, the program automatically connected to a local UK server, and we were online.

Our client automatically identified and used our Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections. It displayed icons for both network interfaces, along with assorted connection stats including the total amount of data transferred, and the peak download and upload speeds. You can drill down into the data even more, if you like, and view the stats for today, this month or over the lifetime of your account. This works as advertised, but we're not sure it has much practical value or justifies the space it takes up in the interface.

A Server panel includes options to choose the fastest server, the best server for torrents, or manually select your preferred country from the full list of 34. This is easy to use, but aside from the ability to choose locations and servers within a country, it's very short on features: there are no server load figures, no ping times, no Favorites system, no search box, no 'Recent connections' list or anything else. 

The client Settings box is cluttered with a mass of technical features.

Bonding Mode defines how your internet connections are managed, for instance. The default Streaming mode optimizes traffic for, well, streaming. Speed mode focuses on performance only, while Redundant mode sends all traffic across all available connections to improve reliability, though at the cost of significantly higher data use.

Transport Mode enables sending your traffic via UDP for speed, TCP for reliability, the new 'TCP Multiple' to accelerate performance by using multiple parallel TCP sockets, and HTTPS to disguise your traffic as web browsing (slower, but also less likely to be blocked).

Although Speedify always connects to the DNS service on its own servers first, there's support for forwarding them to several external DNS services – Google, Cloudflare, OpenDNS, AdGuard, Quad9 – and there's a Custom option where you can specify whatever IP addresses you need.

Speedify's most important options cover its rules for connection handling. By default, the system uses Wi-Fi whenever it's available, for example, but you can tell it to use other connection types first, or only to use Wi-Fi when other connections are unavailable. It's possible to set daily or monthly limits, handy for metered connections, or you can even disable Wi-Fi support altogether – it's your call.

We tried Speedify's channel bonding feature using both Wi-Fi to a local router and a tethered mobile, but didn't see any concrete performance improvement. We're not going to draw any conclusions from that, though, because results may vary drastically depending on your connections, devices, networks, internet speeds and how you configure Speedify's app. There's no substitute for trying it yourself to see how the technology performs on your local setup. (As we mentioned, you get 5GB traffic for free, no registration required, so this is easy to do.)

Channel bonding did deliver on its reliability promises, though: we streamed a video, turned our router off, and our movie carried on playing, without a glitch.

The client isn't quite as intuitive as most VPN apps. The main interface is crammed with not-so-essential data (your fastest upload speed of the day), but doesn't always show you the name of the currently selected location, so you won't necessarily know what you'll get if you hit Connect. There are one or two small usability issues, too, in particular the lack of any desktop notifications to let you know when the service connects or disconnects.

Overall, though, the client does a decent job, especially considering it must implement the extra complexities of Speedify's channel bonding, and you'll find your way around its interface within a very few minutes.

The client has some capable functionality under the hood, too. We tried stress testing its kill switch by manually closing TCP connections, for instance, to simulate a connection drop, but the client wasn't concerned. It automatically reconnected in a second or two, and our real IP address was never exposed to the outside world.

There's an interesting bonus feature in the bundled SpeedifyCLI, a cross-platform tool which allows you to initiate, control and monitor VPN connections from the command line or your own scripts.

While that's mostly for experts, there are a few occasions where it could be handy for anyone.

You might set up a quick batch file to connect to the VPN before launching a particular app, for instance. How about a scheduled task to connect, or disconnect, at a particular time of day? Or you could automatically change VPN settings to suit different apps. It's all very flexible, and you can read more in the SpeedifyCLI manual (see SpeedifyCLI.pdf in the app folder, C:\Program Files (x86)\Speedify on Windows).

Netflix and streaming

Speedify claims that it allows you to 'watch region-locked content from back home while traveling.'

Dig into the support site, though, and you'll find a 'Does Speedify work with Netflix?' article which explicitly says: 'Speedify will not give you capabilities to access other Netflix countries or unblock Disney+, HBO, and Hulu.'

The company isn't kidding, either. Its apps now have a Streaming Bypass feature which enables connecting directly to Netflix, Disney+, HBO and Hulu, rather than going through the tunnel to stop you being blocked.

Maybe it would work, anyway, we thought, optimistically? Nope: we tried Netflix, Disney+ and (as Speedify didn't mention it) Amazon Prime Video, but all three services detected and blocked our VPN.

Even BBC iPlayer, Speedify's one big success from our last review, refused to stream content this time around.

The situation isn't quite as bad as it sounds (no, really), because while Speedify performed poorly with the best defended platforms, we had no issues accessing targets with less protection, including YouTube.

If you need to unblock a service we've not mentioned, then, there's at least a chance Speedify will be able to help. And of course, the company doesn't expect you to hand over any cash to find out: just download and install the app, and use the free plan to try and access whatever site you like.

    Ratings and Reviews

    Best VPN I’ve used

    I’ve been using this service for awhile now, and it keeps getting better. Any minor issues I had in the past have long since been resolved, and it’s been smooth sailing ever since. Best feature is the internet kill switch. Other products I tried would disconnect themselves without you realising it right away, and suddenly your privacy is at risk. I think all mobile VPN’s will have this happen sometimes, just connection issues or, I’m not really sure why. But with Speedify when this happens, it will prevent you from connecting at all. Really great to have this added layer of security.

    Hi, I am sorry you are now having some issues. Can you please send a ticket to support and mention this review. Send your email to [email protected]

    Sign in Difficulties over AT&T cell network plague app

    When I first used the app with a slow DSL connection plus AT&T cell data, the app worked well, speeding some downloads for a new computer I was setting up at my sister-in-law’s house. But trying to use it at the local library similarly, the app often fails to sign in, or connect to the VPN servers, or bond the Wi-Fi and cell data. The app also usually fails to connect or bond our 2 iPhones at the house (2-3 bars signal strength) and keeps signing me out so that I get told I am using the free version with its limitations. Except it’s not working even as that, with no bonding, no VPN, no encryption, no speed up of computer or iPad internet access. Rural internet access is very poor in Maine, and this poorly performing software doesn’t really help much.

    Sorry to hear you're having issues using Speedify. Please reach out to [email protected] so we can assist you.

    Good idea that doesn’t work that well

    I purchased this app and paid for the unlimited plan and regret it now. It does not play nicely with my iPhone 6 or iPad. I was traveling a lot this summer and wanted the VPN feature for all of the various unsecured WI-FI hot spots I would be using, but it worked poorly. Whenever I would try to log into a WI-FI, it would pop up telling me the site was unsecured (duh) and either the app or the hotspot would not let me connect. If I turned off the app, I could connect and then if I turned the app back on, it would function, but that was hardly convenient. I uninstalled it and went on with my travels and avoided logging into accounts unless I was on cellular. I recently reinstalled it and it has become a battery hog and turns itself on without being asked. Not sure what is going on but I will wait for the next update and if it continues, then I will delete it again.

    Hi, I am sorry you are experiencing problems with Speedify. We would like to help with the problems you are experiencing. Are you able to send a support ticket to [email protected] and reference this review and we will get back to you ASAP. Thank you.

    Speedify Free VPN Review (Updated 2021)

    Speedify Free VPN claims to boost your speeds and offer top-notch online privacy but is it true. Check out my Speedify VPN review to find out if it's worth getting in 2021 or should you choose some other service.

    Speedify is not your average run-of-the-mill VPN service. Well, to be fair, it’s more of a channel bonding tool than a full-fledged VPN service. While writing this Speedify review, I found it rather impressive to boost my speeds significantly by merging my Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and mobile internet connection.

    I also like that it offers well-designed modern-looking apps with built-in options for encryption, Kill Switch, and an even mode dedicated for streaming. However, when it actually comes to offering VPN-specific performance, Speedify lacks quite a bit.

    After all, Speedify was initially advertised as an internet speed-boosting tool. So, it’s not as good in performance as ExpressVPN or Surfshark. For instance, Netflix didn’t work for me. Despite changing multiple US servers, I still got the proxy error. Torrenting also didn’t go smoothly. While starting at pretty fast speeds, Speedify abruptly became unbearably slow.

    Overall, Speedify is a decent VPN service with 50+ servers in 35 countries that’s good for basic usage; however, you should be better off with something else for heavy usage. So after weighing in all the pros and cons, I’ve given Speedify a 4.0 stars rating overall.

    If you wish to check out other VPNs that are free, please check out our list of best free VPN services.

    My Rating Criteria

    To thoroughly test Speedify for its pros and cons, I used my 9 step rating criteria:

    1. Jurisdiction – Is Speedify safe to use?
    2. Security – Does Speedify keep logs?
    3. Leaks – Does Speedify leak IP, DNS, WebRTC?
    4. Servers – Is Speedify good for torrenting?
    5. Speed – How fast is Speedify?
    6. Streaming – Does Speedify unblock US Netflix?
    7. Compatibility – Which devices can I use Speedify with?
    8. Pricing – What does Speedify cost?
    9. Trustworthiness – Is Speedify a good VPN?

    Jurisdiction – Is Speedify safe to use?

    Well, if you’re worried about data sharing and surveillance, Speedify can be considered not safe to use. I say this because Speedify is a US-based VPN provider based in Philadelphia, which, as we all know, falls under the surveillance jurisdiction of the 5 eyes.

    Since Speedify operates from the US, they have to abide by strict data retention laws. This is not ideal for a VPN company since logs are something no customer would want to compromise on. Even though Speedify claims to log no user data, the fact that they operate just under the nose of the 5 eyes makes me quite skeptical.

    Security – Does Speedify keep logs?

    After going through their privacy policy, I can say that Speedify is actually no logs service. I like that they don’t hide any information. They literally have everything in plain sight. They clearly mention on their website that:

    We do not log the IP addresses of websites that you visit or the contents of data sent or received through the Service.

    That being said, Speedify does collect some information, but nothing worth worrying about. Under their “What Personal Information We Collect” heading, they clearly mention all the information they gather about their users.

    • Contact information
    • Homepage access logs
    • Device information
    • Location information
    • Cookies
    • Speedify server access logs

    Encryption & Other Features

    Encryption wise I found Speedify to be quite impressive as well. Instead of using AES-256-bit encryption, Speedify uses what they call ChaCha 256-bit Encryption. This encryption mechanism is supposedly way harder to crack than the usual AES-256 Bit encryption found in almost every other VPN service.

    ChaCha 256-bit Encryption is also what makes this VPN stand out amongst other VPN providers in its class. The way it works is quite complicated, so that I won’t get too much into details. Rest assured, you don’t have to worry about anybody decrypting your private data.

    Speedify Channel Bonding

    Conversely, to boost up speeds and reduce latency, Speedify developed its own protocol by the name of “Channel bonding.” Like the name suggests, this technology works by combining all network connections such as Wi-Fi, cellular, Ethernet, etc., simultaneously to offer a seamless and refined network connection.

    Another thing that I really found helpful about Channel bonding is staying connected even when one of the connection sources becomes unavailable. This feature is convenient, and it saved my download progress at least twice during my testing.

    Speedify Kill Switch

    Kill Switch is another super handy feature that comes standard with Speedify. The Kill Switch feature basically disconnects your internet connection until your VPN connection restores. This prevents your information from leaking accidentally if your VPN connection fails. You can toggle on or off the Kill Switch from within the app.

    Streaming Bypass

    This feature is basically a mode to access streaming services. At the moment, it has options to unblock Netflix, Disney+, HBO, and Hulu. While this feature sounds too good to be true, I couldn’t watch US Netflix shows. But we’ll talk more about streaming performance a bit later on in this review.

    Leaks – Does Speedify leak IP, DNS, WebRTC?

    As for VPN leaks, Speedify is actually leakproof. I ran it through extensive testing and found it to be leakproof. Speedify managed not to expose my IP, DNS, and WebRTC data. Here are the screenshots of the test results:

    IP Leak Test:

    First, I performed the IP leak test. To do that, I used a US server location. As you can see from the screenshot below, my original IP address is not being exposed. Pretty good so far.

    Speedify IP Leak Test

    DNS Leak Test:

    Next, I checked for DNS leaks. Speedify comes with a built-in option to select from a list of available DNS servers; Speedify managed to show no DNS leak sign. Check out the screenshot below.

    Speedify DNS Leak Test

    WebRTC Leak Test:

    After both DNS and IP leak tests, I also checked for WebRTC leaks, and Speedify passed this test too without any issues. As you can see from the screenshot below, my IP is not being detected.

    Speedify WebRTC Leak Test

    Virus Test:

    Last but not least, I also checked for any hidden virus or malware in the Speedify app. I ran its Google Play Store app link through VirusTotal.com and found no virus at all. Just check out the screenshot below:

    Speedify Virus Test

    Servers – Is Speedify good for torrenting?

    Well, to be honest, Speedify is not good for torrenting. Even though Speedify servers are around 50+ servers in number and available in 35 countries, it didn’t manage to offer a worthwhile performance. I tried downloading a moderate size torrent file, and my speeds suddenly dropped quite significantly. Overall, you might want to use some other VPN if you torrent quite frequently.

    Does Speedify work in China?

    Since the Speedify account only offers 50+ servers and no actual server in China, Speedify doesn’t currently work in China. Even its Hong Kong server location didn’t manage to unblock Chinese websites like Bilibili. This is kind of disappointing considering that Surfshark, which is a lot cheaper, does work quite well in China.

    Speed – How fast is Speedify?

    On the speed front, Speedify performed quite well. I managed to get pretty decent speeds on most servers, which is quite impressive. I performed all my speed tests using my 30 Mbps internet connection.

    speed-test-result-of-30-mbps-connection

    Canadian Server:

    While connected to its Canadian server, I managed to get around 27.10 Mbps downloading speed. This is really good, considering my base connection speed was 30 Mbps.

    Speedify Speed Test Result on Canadian Server

    US Server:

    With the US, I managed to get slightly slower speeds. However, nothing too bad. On average, the US servers managed to output 20.88 Mbps download speeds.

    speedify-Speed-Test-on-US-Server

    UK Server:

    With the UK server, I managed to get pretty decent speeds. At max, on my 30 Mbps connection, the UK server managed to push out around 24.55 Mbps download speed.

    speedify-Speed-Test-on-Uk-Server

    Overall, Speedify’s Channel bonding technology certainly works, and I managed to get really impressive speeds with it. If you ache for fast speeds, Speedify is a good choice.

    Visit SpeedifyBest Alternative to Speedify

    Streaming – Does Speedify unblock US Netflix?

    Even though Speedify is really fast, unfortunately, it didn’t unblock Netflix for me. Despite enabling the streaming mode for Netflix, I still came across the proxy error multiple times.

    speedify-not-working-with-us-netflix

    This is seriously disappointing considering that Speedify actually advertises a mode dedicated to accessing Netflix. Therefore, for Netflix, you will have to consider using some other VPN. Overall, Speedify Netflix is not happening at the moment.

    Other Streaming Services that work with Speedify

    Aside from Netflix, that, unfortunately, didn’t work, Speedify also didn’t work with Hulu. I tried streaming “Rick and Morty” with the US server, and nothing worked.

    That being said, BBC iPlayer surprisingly worked out of nowhere. I used a random UK server to stream the “Peaky Blinders,” and it worked.

    BBC-iplayer-working-with-speedify-2020

    As for speeds and video playback quality, everything streamed just okay. I wouldn’t say I was blown away in any way since I did encounter a few buffering issues. Speedify is also one of the best free VPN for Popcorn Time.

    Compatibility – Which devices can I use Speedify with?

    Currently, the service is compatible with all the leading platforms like Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. But on the negative side, Speedify doesn’t currently support gaming consoles or even smart TVs, for that matter. This is not good considering that other VPNs at least offer router compatibility. It does, however, work on Firestick TVs, and you can read free VPN for Firestick reddit reviews for user experience.

    Speedify Windows App

    As for the user interface of the Windows app of Speedify, it really caught my eye. Everything is neatly laid and vividly mentioned within the application. The color scheme is also something I really like. The hues of pinks and blues really give Speedify a unique look. I also like how easy it is to switch between Speedify server locations.

    The interface of Speedify is split into two sections. The top part contains the Speedify toggle button and both the cellular and Wi-Fi signal strengths, and the bottom part graphically shows the speeds. The bottom part is also where you’ll be able to see the stats of your monthly and daily data consumption.

    Speedify Mac App

    As for macOS, Speedify also offers a pretty nice-looking app for it too. Similar to Windows, the macOS app also has a split-screen interface. It also boasts a clean UI with the same hues of pinks and blues. I like how the macOS client is. You’re literally not going to notice any sort of lags.

    Speedify Android App

    For Android, Speedify offers a smooth, user-friendly, and easy-to-use application. It has a 4.0-star rating on Google Play Store and is super easy to use. I also love that the Android app offers nearly identical features that you can find in the Windows or the Mac app of Speedify.

    Speedify iOS App

    As for the iOS app of Speedify, it is also super easy to use and well designed. The iOS app has even better user reviews. Currently, it has a 4.7-star rating on the iTunes store, which is super impressive. As for usability, it works similarly to the Android app and has pretty much every feature you could need.

    Pricing – What does Speedify cost?

    There are currently three (3) Speedify’s subscription plans you can choose from. Individual, Family, and Team Plan. The Individual plan covers one user, the Family plan covers 5 users, and the Team plan covers as many users as you like.

    Personally, the only affordable plan, in my opinion, is the individual plan which can be used on 5 devices simultaneously. The rest of the two plans are costly for a consumer VPN, if you ask me.

    The one thing that you’re not going to find in Individual and Family plans is dedicated IPs. This is only available in the Team package. However, Speedify dedicated server starts from $75.00/month. If you want something a lot more affordable, do check out our handpicked list of VPN deals.

    Individuals Package:

    The individuals’ package has four major plans:

    Speedify Pricing Plan for Individuals

    Families Package:

    Similarly, the family package also has four plans:

    Speedify Pricing Plan for Families

    Team Plan:

    Last but not least, the team package offers 2 plans which start from:

    Speedify Pricing Plan for Team

    As for payment methods, you can only use Credit Cards, PayPal, and Amazon Pay. To my surprise, they have not added any sort of anonymous payment option like Bitcoin. Their refund policy, on the other hand, is pretty great. All of their plans are covered by a full risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don’t end up liking their service, you can always get a refund.

    Visit SpeedifyBest Alternative to Speedify

    Trustworthiness – Is Speedify a good VPN?

    Well, if you check out its Trustpilot rating, Speedify is not particularly a good VPN. In fact, Speedify doesn’t have a lot of presence on Trustpilot. I mean, it only has 6 user reviews in total. What’s even worse is that almost 67% of users have rated the service as Bad. Only 17% of users have given it an Excellent rating. As for the overall score, Speedify only has a 3.0/5.0 Trustpilot score.

    review-speedify

    Speedify Reddit Reviews

    Aside from a not-so-good Trustpilot rating and score, Speedify also doesn’t have many positive comments on Reddit. I came across a lot of negative comments. For instance, Here’s one Reddit comment claiming that Speedify made no difference in speeds:

    Negative comment about speedify on reddit

    Here’s another negative comment about Speedify and how it will not make any difference in speed unless you already have a high-speed connection. But fortunately for me, I didn’t encounter slow speeds aside from when I tried downloading torrents.

    another negative comment about speedify on reddit

    Customer Support

    Although there’s no live chat support on their website, their email ticketing system is, to the very least helpful. Besides offering email support, they also have a bunch of helpful query-related articles on their website.

    They are also quite detailed, so you should be able to resolve your issue right there and then. However, if, for some reason, the related articles don’t offer any help, you can also shoot them an email. In a nutshell, they offer the following support options:

    Comparison between ExpressVPN and Speedify

    So by now, it’s clear in this review that Speedify is not a well-built product for everyone. It’s good for some stuff, but it still needs to improve a lot. For the high price, there are better options out there. If you like, I’ve listed a short Speedify alternative comparison just to give you an idea.

    Alternatives to Speedify

    If you’re not interested in Speedify, don’t worry; read a list of other VPN reviews:

    Do I Recommend Speedify?

    Well, to be honest, I do recommend using Speedify. It might not be like most other VPN services, but that’s exactly what makes it so different and unique. I like that it is fast; I also love their modern-looking apps well, especially their built-in speed test feature. Overall, if you just want a simple VPN that can deliver fast speeds, Speedify is the perfect VPN to get.

    Speedify is perfect to use in many countries although it might not offer servers everywhere. It may not be the best free VPN for a Philippines server, but you can always use it within the Philippines to connect to any server you like.

    That said, there are still a few things these VPNs need to improve upon. While their overall service was good, it was kind of disappointing to see the lack of Netflix support. Aside from that, while Speedify managed to offer quite fast speeds, it became slightly burdened while downloading torrents.

    I also found it weird that they offer iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac applications, yet they don’t offer any support for both gaming consoles and Smart TVs. All in all, If it can improve upon a few features, Speedify can definitely earn a 5-star rating in the future. But for now, after concluding this Speedify review, I found it to be slightly short on performance and have given it a 4.0/5.0 star rating overall.

    Speedify Review

    Speedify is a cloud service that allows you to combine multiple Internet connections for ultimate speeds. The company’s channel-bonding technology leverages the available speed servers in the cloud to provide you with a more reliable and faster connection. Speedify can be used to speed up your uploads, HD streaming, and pretty much everything else you’ll ever do online.

    Speedify was launched by Connectify Inc., a company based in the US, with headquarters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The project was initially advertised solely as an Internet speed-boosting tool, but the introduction of solid encryption back in late 2016 allowed it to offer VPN services as well.

    So, if you want to learn how the service works and familiarize yourself with the platform, our Speedify review will answer all the potential questions you might have. Keep on reading to discover whether Speedify can make your online experience as safe as it can make it fast.

    Interface

    Speedify’s client is very clean and easy to use. The color scheme follows the “cloud” theme rather nicely and features some relaxing shades of blue, making the interface very pleasant to look at.
    The whole layout looks like an algorithm, with the top part indicating your Internet connection status. Underneath it, you’ll see a connect/disconnect slider and information on your current speed server. Speedify review the very bottom, there’s a speed graph, which you can toggle for additional information.

    Performance And Reliability

    One of the biggest problems with modern VPNs is their effect on your Internet speed. Most of the services will cut it to some extent, so you usually have to choose between security and seamless browsing, streaming or downloading.

    Speedify solves this issue by combining two services into one. Encryption protocols ensure your online safety and anonymity while speed-boosting handles potential lagging problems by spreading the most demanding of tasks across different networks. Just note that your connections must come from different sources in order to be “Speedifyable.” For example, Ethernet and Wi-Fi networks connected to the same router can’t be combined for increased bandwidth because of the shared upstream network. Since most modern computers come with only one Wi-Fi card, you’ll have to purchase an additional USB adapter in order to connect to your secondary network.

    In order to bring you this Speedify review, we conducted a serious battery of tests and recorded the results concerning Internet speed under different circumstances. We tested our primary connection with and without Speedify and we later added a secondary connection and observed what happened once Speedify was allowed to use both Internet links.

    We noticed your usual speed drops over time while using our “naked” Wi-Fi. Once we introduced Speedify without encryption, the speed drops were significantly lower. When we added our secondary link, things got somewhat better, as we could actually see the overall speed improvement even without measuring it. Bottom line, Speedify does exactly what it promises. It reduces the overall losses incurred by the Internet connection alone and further raises the speed. The actual bonding process went without a hitch and it joined our two connections in order to provide better speed and handle bigger tasks more easily.

    Multi-Platform

    Speedify currently supports PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. This covers the most popular desktop and mobile platforms we have today, so you shouldn’t have any problems installing Speedify on your particular device. 

    Speedify supports the following versions of the mentioned platforms:

    • Windows – 7 and up
    • MacOS – 10.10 and up
    • iOS – 9.0 and up
    • Android – 4.4 (KitKat) and up

    You can download Speedify for PC and Mac on the official website and on iTunes and Google Play for iOS and Android, respectively. 

    Features

    Being a combination of two different services, Speedify offers a multitude of features. Here are some of the most prominent ones:

    • Speedify allows you to speed up your Internet connection by bonding different sources and their respective bandwidths.
    • The easeus data recovery wizard professional crack free download - Crack Key For U features speed servers (including dedicated ones) in more than 26 countries all over the world. It is also constantly working on including new locations.
    • Speedify is all about promoting a free and efficient Internet, so it doesn’t put any limits to your monthly downloads.
    • You can speedify review 2 devices simultaneously.
    • You get virtual IP addresses with Speedify.
    • Speedify allows P2P traffic through its servers in the Netherlands.

    If you so choose, Speedify can also host a server in your facility, provided that you have reliable bandwidth, hardware, and network configuration and access. Speedify was, unfortunately, blocked by Netflix, so if unlocking the US version of this service is one of your main goals, Speedify is not the platform for you.  

    Security And Privacy

    Speedify utilizes ChaCha cipher to deliver its expected performance as a VPN service. ChaCha is backed up by RFC 7539 Standard and ChaCha over DTLS by RFC 7905. If you want a smoother online experience and are not concerned with possible threats, you can opt to turn the encryption off and use Speedify solely as a speed booster. 

    The second part of the puzzle is DTLS, which is TLS (SSL) over UDP. This technology provides you with the same security level in charge of guarding Facebook, Gmail, and other HTTPS:// websites. It simultaneously allows you to handle error correction yourself for a much smoother performance in the face of lost packets. 

    Speedify for Windows also allows you to enable the Super Secure Mode, which prevents Windows from sending DNS requests on any connections except for Speedify. This eliminates the possibility of Windows leaking DNS to your local networks.  

    Connectify is located in the US, which is a good location for speed boosters but speedify review autodesk 3ds max serial number unfortunate one for VPNs. We don’t need to elaborate on the ever-looming privacy threat that is the US government and its assorted agencies. On top of that, the US is also a member of the Five Eyes surveillance network. The company offsets this danger by maintaining a strict zero-logs policy. This means Speedify doesn’t record or store your connection or online activity data. Since there are still no mandatory data retention laws in the US, this provides for a very safe online experience.

    Speedify makes some boastful claims about being one of the most user-friendly VPN providers on the market. But its actions speak otherwise.

    To its credit, it uses one of the most formidable encryptions and has a unique protocol to go with it. However, that is all that the service has to offer. All its other promises are either outright lies or half-truths at best.

    Despite claiming to unblock Netflix and giving access to China, Speedify is unable to do any of these. Similarly, it hides its past practice of sharing logging info with the authorities and the subsequent change in the name of the service.

    All of these should be enough for users to shun this service and rely instead on ExpressVPNthat backs up all its claims with actual results and features making it one of the most well-reputed names in the VPN market.

    Jurisdiction: Where Is Speedify VPN Located?

    Speedify operates out of the United States. This would make it an extremely problematic VPN because of the country’s role as one of the leaders of the notorious 5/9/14 Eyes Alliance. But that is just the tip of the iceberg.

    There are other issues such as the slew of federal and state data retention laws that make it possible for the authorities to keep a watchful eye over the internet activities of their citizens. There have been multiple scandals in the past where it has come to light how the NSA and CIA have both the mandate and the capabilities to actively monitor every aspect of each user online.

    Considering how companies based out of the US ae required to cooperate with these organizations, Speedify’s jurisdiction immediately casts a massive red flag on the service’s ability to keep its users truly anonymous online.

    Security: Is Speedify VPN A Safe Option?

    No, I would not categorize Speedify as a safe VPN provider. The biggest red herring for me is its jurisdiction. It is further compounded by a dodgy logging policy and a set of encryption and protocols, that are fast, but unreliable as far as safety is concerned.

    Dubious Logging Policy

    The service claims to be a no-logs guaranteed VPN provider. Going on their website, it becomes clear that the service is trying to shed away the initial reluctance of users about their logging policy because of their jurisdiction.

    There is a special “What Personal Information We Collect” section that mentions all the info that the service does store about their users i.e. contact info, access logs, device info, location info, cookies, and server access logs.

    In short, apart from usage logs, Speedify has a complete log of your online sessions using TunesKit Spotify Converter Licenses key.

    Speedify VPN Encryption & Protocols

    I was pleasantly surprised to see that Speedify has chosen to go for different encryption than the standard AES-256-bit one. Foxit phantompdf volume license uses the ChaCha 256-bit Encryption that is harder to crack than the industry-standard AES-256-bit one.

    Similarly, it doesn’t opt for any of the standard tunneling protocol, instead of relying on its own proprietary protocol by the name of “Channel bonding”. This unique protocol allows them to offer greater speed and stability by connecting all your devices and then beaming them directly, helping you to stay online even when one connection is disrupted.

    Speedify VPN VirusTotal Test

    To be safe that the service’s installation files are safe to download and install, I ran them through a virus test to check for any malicious add-ons. Here are the results of that test:

    Speedify-Virustest

    As users can see, there are no major malicious files to be worried of.

    Leaks: Are Your IP, DNS & WebRTC Safe?

    To see whether Speedify can properly keep my IP, DNS, and WebRTC safe from any vulnerabilities, I carried out a series of tests looking for potential leaks. Here are the results:

    VPNUnlimited-IP-Leak-test

    Evidently, users can rest assured that their IP, DNS, and WebRTC are completely safe online.

    Servers: How Many Servers Does Speedify VPN Have?

    Speedify can put 200+ servers in 30+ countries at its users’ disposal. The server count is not impressive by any measure, but can is it good for torrenting or for use in China? Find out below:

    Does Speedify VPN Support P2P/File Sharing?

    No, the service is not a good option as far as torrenting is concerned.

    Speedify does not state its official policy with regards to P2P Sharing anywhere on its website. However, whenever I tried to download any torrent file, it would have negative impact on my internet speeds.

    Does Speedify VPN Work in China?

    Despite a Hong Kong server, the service does not work properly in China. This is due to an acute lack of any actual server in the Mainland.

    VPNs have become users’ only way of retaining access to free internet in the wake of rowing censorship and online restrictions on content by the government.

    Even expats end up getting VPN subscription to gain access to their favorite geo-restricted Chinese content that is only accessible inside the country. Both of these users will have to keep looking for other VPNs as Speedify is unsuited to both their needs.

    Streaming: Can Speedify VPN Unblock Netflix?

    Well, Speedify proudly advertises the fact that the service can unblock Netflix with ease. However, when I tried to use its dedicated streaming mode to unblock the service, it failed to do so. This reflects poorly on the service since it boasts of a feature that it clearly does not provide to its users.

    I had similar issues with other popular streaming sites like Amazon Prime, Hulu, Hotstar, BBC iPlayer, and Disney+. Considering how this is a key part of Speedify’s marketing campaign, I would say this was a major disappointment, to say the least.

    Speed: How Fast are Speedify VPN Servers?

    Despite the visibly unimpressive ensemble of servers, I wanted to see how these servers perform in terms of speed. Hence, using a 100Mbps connection, I put them through a speed test. I connected to 5 random countries i.e. New Zealand, India, Portugal, Canada, and Australia.

    Here are the results:

    ServerDownloadUploadPing
    New Zealand45Mbps41Mbps366ms
    India42Mbps39Mbps356ms
    Portugal47Mbps44Mbps341ms
    Canada32Mbps29Mbps387ms
    Australia29Mbps39Mbps376ms
    Average39Mbps38.4Mbps365ms

    Compatibility: What Devices Can I Use Speedify VPN On?

    Currently, users will be able to use Speedify across devices and platforms such asWindows, Mac, Android, Linux, and iOS as well on Fire TV. However, there is no additional support for any other platform or device making it a largely confining service in terms of complete cross-compatibility.

    This extends to its lack of compatibility for any kind of router as well.

    Pricing: Is Speedify VPN An Affordable Option?

    Users will be able to choose between 3 different kinds of payment plans; each with their distinct benefit i.e. Individual, Family, and Team.

    For the Individual PhotoFiltre Studio X 10.14.0 Crack 2019 - Crack Key For U, users can choose between the DiskGenius Professional Crack subscriptions:

    • Monthly ($9.99 per month)
    • 1-Year ($5.99 per month)
    • 2-Year ($3.99 per month)
    • 3-Year ($2.99 per month)

    Speedify-Price1

    For the Families packages, users can choose between the following subscriptions:

    • Monthly ($14.95 per month)
    • 1-Year ($8.95 per month)
    • 2-Year ($6.00 per month)
    • 3-Year ($4.50 per month)

    Speedify-Price2

    For the Team plan, users can choose between two different plans depending on their requirements:

    • Monthly ($9.99 per month)
    • 1-Year ($5.99 per month)

    Speedify-Price3

    Speedify VPN Payment Methods

    The service does not put a wealth of options at your disposal when it comes to payment options. Users can only pay via credit cards, PayPal, and Amazon Pay. While the lack of support for debit cards of any kind was worrying, it was something else that left me completely disappointed.

    Most services have started offering support for cryptocurrencies to make it easier to remain anonymous in term of financial transactions. Speedify’s lack of such support reflects poorly on its commitment to privacy.

    Speedify VPN Refund Policy

    The service does offer a 30-Day Money back guarantee. In my experience, this is the standard industry practice and Speedify does well to keep up with the rest of the market in this regard.

    Trustworthiness: What Do Other Users Say About Speedify review VPN?

    I did not want my own experience to be the sole driving force behind this review. I wanted to incorporate the experiences of other users of this service as well. Hence, I headed over to Trustpilot and Reddit to see what users feel about the service there. Additionally, I also looked at Speedify’s own customer service. This is what I learned:

    Speedify VPN Trustpilot Review

    Speedify’s Trustpilot rating is an abominable 2.5 stars out of 5. This is made even worse by the fact that nearly 67% of the reviews are Bad and 17% Poor. It seems as the service does not take its promises seriously and is negligent in its attitude towards its users.

    Speedify-Trustpilot

    I should mention that this is the result of just 6 reviews. And the page itself is unclaimed. Speedify could remedy a lot of its problems if it claimed the page and started interacting with its users more.

    Speedify VPN Reddit Review

    I found out a lot of interesting details about Speedify that I did not know initially. It seems that my earlier suspicion of Speedify were accurate as most of these users echo the same sentiments.

    Speedify-Reddit1

    It seems as thought the service used to be called Connectify. Its reason for changing its name is due to a case where they were found sharing info with government agencies. This is something highly dubious and an incredibly shady practice for a VPN service to be doing.

    Similarly, users were reminded that the service lacks the ability to properly provide a number of essential features they promise based on the infrastructure of the country they were based in.

    Speedify VPN Customer Support

    It’s a good thing I had mentally prepared myself for this disappointment. Its customer support does little to assure users that they can depend on the service to address all their issues at every turn. There is a distinct lack of a live 24/7 chat support.

    The best that the service can offer is an email ticketing system that is barely useful at all. Some other resources include a bunch of articles that are news related…but hardly of any help to the users in terms of their queries.

    Some of the other sections include a Press, Social Media, and Email page. These are accompanied by a Blog and a Contact Us page that aims to address the issue of users’ queries.

    Speedify VPN Alternatives

    It is rare for me to bash a service so blatantly but Speedify’s deceptive practices leave me no choice. The sheer extent of Speedify’s inability to deliver on all the features it boasts left me surprised and disappointed.

    For instance, Speedify evades the questions of its jurisdiction as much as it can. There is no mention on their platform startisback crack the fact that they changed their service’s name. While it is okay for a service to lack some features that other VPNs can provide, lying about having those features is a far greater problem.

    There are dozens of other reasons why users should shun this service and opt for a better, more transparent service like PureVPN. Not only does it provide complete Netflix unblocking, support for torrents, and a Chinese server, but it also has a reputation of being completely honest with its users and never being duplicitous with them.

    Do I Recommend Speedify VPN VPN?

    No, users should steer clear of this service. Rarely have I ever seen a service so eager to deceive its users. The fact that it chose to change its name and present like nothing happened after breaching all their users’ trust should be reason enough to permanently blacklist this service.

    When writing this review, I found myself frequently annoyed by how many false promises this service makes and its attempts to mislead users at every turn. Despite promising Netflix unblocking and access to China, it fails to deliver on either of these fronts.

    I would strongly recommend users to opt for a far more reliable VPN such as PureVPN that makes no promises it can’t keep, while also boasting a far more impressive list of servers including one in China, to make your browsing more secure and seamless.

    WHAT’S IN THIS REVIEW?

    Disclaimer: Partnerships & affiliate links help us create better content. Learn how.

    The fastest car in the world is useless if you can’t reach your destination. With Speedify, you can certainly rev the engine impressively, but the bridge is up for the majority of online streaming services. 

    Speedify’s VPN is appropriately named, and they even offer a Streaming Mode to prioritize traffic on your network. The problem is that it doesn’t actually unblock any online streaming services, so you won’t be able to watch U.S. Netflix outside of the country.

    It’s the biggest drawback for a service that actually does have quite a lot to offer. As far as a VPN service goes, it’s still strong in our book. Read on in this Speedify VPN review to find out exactly what we thought of the service while testing.

    Overview

    Speedify is one of the fastest VPN providers I’ve reviewed recently, living up to their name thanks to a blisteringly connection to their servers. There’s a free tier that can mask up to 2GB of data per month, along with a number of additional benefits that we’ll get into below.  

    It’s not the largest VPN by any means, despite originally being envisioned as a channel bonding service. Streaming limitations and a few minor issues hold it back from achieving a higher score, but it’s still very usable and comes in at an attractive price point.

    About Speedify 

    Based in the United States, Speedify is owned by CEO Alex Gizis, with the VPN falling under the Connectify umbrella. Originally envisioned as channel bonding software, Speedify was first released in 2014.

    They added encryption on all supported platforms in speedify review, turning it into a mobile virtual private network. Speedify still uses channel bonding as of 2021, allowing for faster connection speeds in theory. 

    The VPN has positioned itself as a privacy/anti-censorship advocate, with their website saying:

    “We believe in a free and open Internet for all. Access to the Internet should be considered a basic human right and we will continue our fight to secure these protections for everyone.”

    Sounds good, right? There is one elephant in the room, which they sidestep neatly. Their About Us page continues;

    “Additionally, in some countries outside the US, Internet freedom and privacy are non-existent. Popular websites are blocked and private information is far from secure.”

    That’s undeniably true, but what about the U.S., since Speedify is located in Philadelphia? It’s not a great place to base a VPN service due to government agencies and lax privacy laws. 

    It’s something to consider if securing your personal data is the most important reason behind your decision to use a VPN.

    They do offer free software to counter censorship in countries across the globe, but I’d be more worried about the enemy within if you’re wary of government surveillance. 

    Pros & Cons

    To make things easier, we’ve carefully tallied the most important pros and cons we found while using Speedify to help you in your decision-making process.

    pros

    For Speedify, the pros do outweigh the cons in our assessment. In particular, here’s what we liked most:

    • Numerous additional privacy features
    • Blazing fast speeds from nearby servers
    • Supports P2P activities from some locations
    • Decent free trial version
    • 30-day money-back guarantee
    • Channel bonding
    • Custom VPN protocol
    • Up to 5 simultaneous connections
    • Competitive pricing, especially on its longer-term plans
    • Frequent promotional deals for steeper discounts

    cons

    Despite the many perks Speedify offers, no VPN is absolutely perfect. We gathered everything that might raise concern for a user shopping around:

    • No capacity to unblock streaming websites
    • Based in the U.S. (Five Eyes)
    • Free version only offers 2GB of data per month
    • No third-party audit for logging claims
    • Lack of Wireguard support
    • Limited compatibility with platforms and devices

    Features

    Speedify features

    Speedify has a number of notable features that separate it from the majority of VPNs on the market. We’ll give a rundown of the main ones below.

    Streaming Mode 

    By default, Speedify operates in Streaming Mode, which automatically identifies audio and video streams. It also: 

    • Prioritizes streaming traffic over other types of web traffic to provide QoS (quality of service). 
    • Monitors how much bandwidth your stream requires, and records statistics on how each of your internet connections is performing. 
    • Dynamically chooses the best way to send and receive traffic seamlessly over each available Internet connection. It enables redundancy if necessary to protect you against excessive packet loss.

    The feature was added in 2020. It’ll be useful if you have slower speeds and want to avoid stuttering Zoom meetings or lagging games.

    Channel Bonding 

    Speedify’s Channel Bonding tech will allow you to “securely use multiple internet connections at the same time for increased bandwidth, lower latency, and better reliability.” 

    A remnant from before the service became a VPN, it’s another handy feature if you suffer from high latency. On the other hand, it probably won’t be of much use to the average user, especially given the connection speeds I was able to achieve with their servers.

    Regardless, it’s an interesting functionality and another notable perk that you won’t find elsewhere.

    Free Version 

    2G of data usage with Speedify's free plan

    A free version of Speedify is available, although they only offer 2GB of data per month. You won’t have to make an account to try the service, even if 2GB is only going to be good for minimal use. 

    It’s easy to download and setup, and unlike most free VPN versions, you get access to all of the features seen in the premium version.

    Speedify privacy policy agreement

    They also store personal data, including your IP and connection timestamps “to enforce their terms.” This may raise a few eyebrows for privacy sticklers. In any case, it’s a good way to test the service without having to commit in full.

    Dedicated Servers

    Speedify’s dedicated speed servers are only available for teams, so they’re of no use to the average commercial user. It would be nice to see them offering dedicated servers for everyone at a later date, even if it would be in the form of a paid extra. 

    Pricing

    • 1 Month: $9.99/mo.
    • 12 Months: $5.99/mo. ($71.88 upfront)
    • 3 Years: $2.99/mo. ($107.64 upfront)
    Speedify pricing and plans

    They’re not exactly giving it away for free, but Speedify is one of the cheaper providers on the market when all is said and done. Their one-month plan comes in at $9.99 and can be used on up to five devices. 

    The longer the contract, the cheaper the deal. So, 12 months is $5.99/mo., two years is $3.99/mo., and three years is $2.99/mo. (In any case, you have to pay the entire amount upfront.) Keep in mind that we do offer deals on Speedify as they come through.

    However, Speedify is known for offering great promotional discounts throughout the year Password Recovery Bundle brings their longest plan to a new low. When visiting the site, a pop-up ad offered up to 85% savings on Speedify’s 3-year plans.

    Speedify promotion pop-up for 85% off new sign-ups

    After clicking into it, the discount took 50% off the Individual 3-Year Plan, which brought the total cost to $53.82 from $107.64. That equates to just $1.50/mo., which blows most top-rated VPNs out of the water.

    They also offer a Family Plan that gives the user and four others separate accounts and can be used on 5 devices simultaneously. Again, it’s affordable, with one month priced at $14.99, while 12 months is $8.95/mo. or two years for $6.00/mo.

    Lastly, the TeamsPlans allow for a large number of users where you can add a dedicated server. It’s $5.99 per user per month for the first year.

    If you’re on the fence, there is an insurance policy so to speak. Speedify offers a 30-day money-back guarantee that can be redeemed as long as you haven’t been suspended for Terms of Service violations. 

    However, they note that “no partial refunds will be awarded for the service period during which the user cancels the subscription; users will not be issued a refund for any portion of the current service month, but auto-renewal speedify review their subscription will be canceled and no further charges will be owed for subsequent service months.”

    Overall, Speedify is a great option if you’re working within a tight budget. 

    Logging Policy

    Speedify’s logging policy seems fair at first glance. Their website states:

    “Speedify has a strict no-log VPN policy: we do not log what you do, what sites you visit, or what services you use while using the Speedify VPN service. Furthermore, Speedify will not rent or disclose your personal information to other companies.”

    Their Privacy Policy goes on to clarify:

    • We have no record of the websites that you visit. We do not retain any of the data that you send or receive while using our services. 
    • All of that information vanishes from our systems as soon as it is transmitted
    • The personal information that we receive from you when communicating using Speedify is automatically deleted after six months.
    • Our backend servers and databases are encrypted and firewalled. Those servers are located in the United States in physically secure facilities with restricted access.
    • We do not provide any personal information to third parties.
    • We do not provide governments with access to our data (unless we are required to by law).

    However, the Privacy Policy also mentions:

    “When you use Speedify to communicate over the Internet we receive your IP address and Device ID. We also record at what time each connection begins, how long each connection lasts, and the amount of data used.” 

    That’s a considerable amount of data for Malwarebytes 4.2.2.190 Premium Crack 2021 company to be logging and recording, especially as they claim to be a privacy-focused provider. 

    Connection logs are unnecessary, while it’s unclear why they would need your IP address. In any case, there are better options on the market if you’re looking for an airtight logging policy. We’d opt for any of the VPNs that have been independently audited, such as NordVPN, ExpressVPN, or VyprVPN.

    Speed Stats

    According to their website, Speedify’s public servers typically offer up to 200-300 Mbps speeds, but they “can vary K7 Total Security Free Download on the location of the server, the hosting provider, the performance of the server, and how well you can reach the server.” 

    My normal connection speeds are slightly faster than the cap mentioned above, so I expected decent results from their VPN. I used Speedify’s built-in speed test at first, which gave an accurate enough reading:

    reviewer's baseline speed results using Speedify's speed test

    First up for testing were their U.K. servers, which are located in London.  

    Speed test results on a London server

    Results were brilliant for the most part, with the download speed coming in at just over 284 Mbps. It’s at the upper end of the 200-300 Mbps estimation, and comparable to some of the fastest providers I’ve tested in recent months. 

    The ping was slightly higher than expected, but it was still good enough for tasks such as gaming and 4K streaming. 

    Next up were their U.S. servers, so I connected to the optimal location in the country. 

    Speed test results on a U.S. server

    Ping was up into the low hundreds, but that’s to be expected if everything is working as it should be. However, speeds went down to 111 Mbps, which is less than a third of the baseline number. 

    It’s undoubtedly a nifty VPN, especially when connecting to servers found nearby. However, results will vary depending on where you’re planning to connect to.

    For example, here are results while I selected Australia, found on the other side of the world in relation to the U.K. where I’m based: 

    Speed test results on an Australian server

    Ping is up to a devastating 321, while the download speed is less than 50 Mbps. 

    Yes, Speedify does have access to lightning-fast servers. No, they’re not consistent, and it’s dependent on the strength of their server network. At least you’ll be able to use the trial version to test it out for yourself.

    Server Locations & Network

    Speedify doesn’t have the largest list of locations to connect to, but it’s substantial. It has roughly 500 servers split across 35 countries. The current list of compatible regions is as follows: 

    • North America: USA, Canada 
    • South America: Brazil 
    • Europe: Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK
    • Asia/Oceania: Australia, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, UAE
    • Africa: South Africa 

    It’s not an ideal option for users located in the Middle East or Africa, and the same is true for South America. As with many providers, Speedify has focused on the U.S. and Europe, so you may have to look elsewhere for a more comprehensive VPN. 

    Streaming & Torrenting

    Streaming & Torrenting Score

    7/10

    Streaming is a no-go, as their own support page freely admits: 

    “Unlike other VPN services that can break Netflix, Disney+, HBO, Hulu, Peacock, and Amazon Prime, Speedify has the ability to allow you to use these services while being connected to a VPN. Please note that Speedify will not give you capabilities to access other Netflix countries or unblock Disney+, HBO, and Hulu.”

    For example, I tested out BBC iPlayer, which didn’t work despite being connected to a UK-based server.

    BBC iPlayer blocked on Speedify servers

    It’s a shame considering the potential speeds they have on offer, and somewhat ironic considering their patented “Streaming Mode.”

    Then again, it makes sense given their smaller server network. It’s great if you just want to watch content from your region, but don’t expect it to unblock Netflix.

    Speedify streaming advertisement

    They are torrent-friendly, as their Amsterdam server is optimized for BitTorrent and P2P activity. However, they note that:

    “BitTorrent is not allowed on most of our Speed Servers, but there are some select servers that allow torrents and other P2P downloads. By clicking on the option Torrent Friendly Server from the Speed Server selection screen, you’ll be connected to an available torrent-friendly server.”

    If accessing geo-restricted content is your primary reason for needing a VPN, you may want to look at other streaming VPNs.

    Censorship

    Speedify has actively taken part in combating censorship in the past, doing so most recently in Myanmar following sustained unrest in the region. 

    CEO Alex Gizis took the opportunity to make a difference, saying:

    “At the beginning of February 2021, a military junta deposed the democratically elected members of Myanmar’s ruling party, which led to an accelerated deterioration of internet freedoms, the new authorities ordered telecom operators to regularly switch off the internet and impose sweeping speedify review on websites, services, and apps to stifle free speech. We knew we needed to help preserve internet freedom.”

    They committed to providing users in Myanmar with free 50 GB/mo. Speedify accounts, seeing an uptick from fewer than 100 users per day, to 490,000 in a single month. 

    Speedify has also provided free data to users in Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela to combat government censorship in the past, which must have had an impact on people who saw everything from the internet turned off to highly restricted access. 

    In the case of Myanmar, an extra 490,000 users in such a short period must have been a strain on resources, and it’s a commendable effort to fight censorship.

    For this part, Speedify scores high in our book.

    Platforms & Devices

    One limitation we did notice was Speedify’s limited compatibility across platforms and devices. Speedify is only available on the following devices:

    • Windows
    • MacOS
    • Linux
    • iOS
    • Android 

    Each has native app support, but it’s not the most comprehensive list if you’re hoping for exceptional compatibility. 

    In fact, it’s a basic selection of apps, missing browser support and numerous devices like gaming consoles and routers.

    The app itself was great to use, packed with information about the VPN connection and a display of basic usage stats. 

    Speedify user stats

    It might be a bit overwhelming for newbies, but it’s easy to keep up with how much data you’re using, and the download speeds being achieved at any given time. There’s also a Speedify speed test within the app, which I used in a section above.

    The Speedify client app has a clean interface and lots of information about the connection, even if encryption options are slightly lacking.

    Encryption & Security

    In terms of security, Speedify’s bonding protocol is a custom protocol, while their “encryption and security is based on industry standards and leverages fast hardware acceleration to give the user maximum performance.”

    A custom protocol may be the reason why I was able to get amazing speeds while the VPN was on, but that does mean that there’s no WireGuard support. 

    You’re stuck with their custom protocol option, and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it would be great to be able to choose your own.  

    For newer devices, they use “AES128-GCM encryption, leveraging the hardware instruction support for AES built into modern CPUs.”

    It’s a decent setup, but as a proprietary protocol, you’ll only be able to use Speedify via one of the apps mentioned above. 

    You can set a custom DNS server to use with your VPN connection. Examples include CloudFlare, Quad9, and AdGuard, with explanations for what each one does found within the app.

    Final Thoughts

    Overall, its name doesn’t disappoint. Speedify is fast. There’s no denying the power their servers can utilize, even if they don’t have many locations speedify review draw upon. Unfortunately, speed alone won’t matter for the average user, especially if they want to unblock the most popular streaming platforms. 

    They strongly advocate for privacy, but there’s no third-party audit of their software to be found. This makes it hard to trust Speedify, no matter their protests to the contrary. However, they have helped to combat censorship on multiple occasions, which does count for something.

    Nonetheless, it’s a usable app by all means, even if it’s unable to unblock websites such as BBC iPlayer and Netflix. There are also lots of nifty features which help to set it apart from the majority of VPNs, such as channel bonding and a choice of custom DNS servers.

    The price puts it firmly within the budget VPN range, but there is a trade-off in terms of entertainment options, as well as their somewhat limited server network. Want to check out some more affordable options? Take a look at all the VPN deals available today.

    For anyone impacted by censorship, Speedify provides a worthwhile service, often free of charge. For users that are spoiled with choices, they’ll probably be disappointed by Speedify, especially if they were hoping to use the streaming mode on unblocked websites like Netflix.

    It scores good marks for every category, but again, if streaming is of utmost importance to you, it may not be the best fit. All in all, it comes down to your unique user needs and preference.

    Making use of a VPN almost always cuts your internet speeds, which is no real surprise given all that encryption overhead.

    Speedify aims to fight this by sharing your internet traffic across any available connections: Ethernet, tethered mobile, Wi-Fi and more (up to 10 in total). If one connection type is slow, Idm crack key - Activators Patch seamlessly moves some of your traffic to another, maximizing your bandwidth. All this happens in the background, entirely transparent to your applications, which carry on working just as they always did (except faster, hopefully).

    You don't need multiple connections to use the service, it works just fine with one – although obviously in this case, you won't get the same channel bonding advantages. However, the company still claims its other connection technologies could help improve speeds.

    Speedify has its own custom protocol, for instance (no OpenVPN or WireGuard support here), using the efficient ChaCha cipher to get fast results on even the oldest of devices, or AES128-GCM on devices where there's hardware support.

    (If you're looking for the full technical detail, Speedify is based on DTLS 1.2 using TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, if hardware-supported, or TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256 for older devices.)

    Yes, it's 'only' AES-128, but that doesn't mean your coffee Topaz DeNoise AI Free Download browsing is suddenly at risk. AES-GCM is more secure than the AES-CBC used by many VPNs, and a 128-bit key gives you plenty of protection. See the Speedify support site for more, or check out Private Internet Access' more complete GGCM vs CBC explanation.

    Speedify provides apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, keeping setup relatively easy. As Speedify uses a proprietary protocol, though, there's no way to manually set it up on routers, games consoles or other platforms. You can only use it through the official apps.

    The company doesn't seem keen to publicize how many servers it has, but they're reasonably well distributed over 50+ locations and 35 countries. And not just in North America and Europe, either: there's also Brazil, India, Israel, Japan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and more.

    The company warns that P2P 'is not allowed on most of our Speed Servers', but torrents are permitted on 'select servers.' For 'select', read 'not enough' – we tried three times to connect to a P2P-friendly server, and each time got a 'this server is at capacity' message, something we don't recall happening with any other P2P-supporting VPN.

    Elsewhere, features include the ability to set your VPN DNS to several popular services: Cloudflare, AdGuard, OpenDNS, Google DNS and more.

    Support for DNS over HTTPS may allow you to get connected in more places, even if they're actively blocking VPNs.

    A Streaming Mode automatically identifies and prioritizes audio and video streams, reducing the chance that they'll be affected by downloads, browsing and anything else you're doing.

    The new Speedify 11 apps use multiple TCP transport mode to optimize speeds even with a single internet connection. Smart header compression automatically shrinks the headers on data packets, and an iPerf3-powered integrated speed test tracks performance over time.

    Support is available if you need it, but the support website is weak (the 'Using Speedify' section has articles on such technical topics as following the company on Twitter and buying new products at its store) and there's no live chat. You can fire off emails as required, though, and we've generally received helpful replies within an hour or two.

    Speedify price and plans

    Speedify offers a free plan, which apparently limits you to 2GB of data a month and use on a single device. We say 'apparently' because although it says that on the website, and it's the allowance we saw on a mobile device, a Windows setup claimed we had 5GB available.

    Even at 2GB, that's just about enough to be useful. You don't have to register, hand over your email address or anything else, and the app doesn't have any restrictions, so the free plan is an ideal way to test the service basics (whether it is fast enough for you, or it can unblock a particular site or service, and so on).

    Upgrading to the Individual plan gets you unlimited data and support for use on up to five devices.

    Prices are reasonable at $9.99 billed monthly, $5.99 if you pay for a year upfront, $3.99 for two years, or $2.99 if you sign up for three. You can pay via card or PayPal (there's no Bitcoin option), and the company has a 30-day money-back guarantee.

    That makes for a low headline figure, but if price is a priority, you can find cheaper deals elsewhere. Private Internet Access' annual plan is just $3.33 a month, for instance, and as we write, ZenMate's $1.64-a-month three-year plan costs significantly less than a year of Speedify ($59 vs $71.88).

    Speedify has a potentially more interesting option in its Family plan. This enables up to 5 people to use it on up to 5 devices each, yet it still costs just $14.95 billed monthly. This falls to $8.95 on the annual plan, $6 over two years, $4.50 over three. If you'll use all five accounts, that's a spectacular $0.90 per month per user.

    Businesses might benefit from a Teams plan. This supports adding as many users as you need at $9.99 each billed monthly, $5.99 on the annual plan, and throws in enterprise-friendly features such as centralized management, CLI and API access, and the option to purchase a dedicated VPN server for $75 a month.

    Privacy and logging

    The Speedify privacy policy is far clearer and more specific than most of the competition, going into great detail on what it collects, and what it doesn't.

    The good news is that the company claims it doesn't keep a history of the sites you visit, or the content of the data you send or receive.

    The bad news is that there's some session logging, including the Wi-Fi SSID of your network, your public IP address, your device ID, the time you connected, the amount of data transferred and the length of the session.

    That could be enough to identify your approximate location and generate a unique identifier for your device, allowing it to be recognized next time. It's more logging than we would like, but it's also necessary to manage Speedify's free plan. (The company needs to track the data you use, and the device where you're using it, to keep you to the 2GB per device limit.)

    While this isn't necessarily a problem, we're left to take it on trust that this is all Speedify does. Other VPNs are increasingly putting themselves through independent audits - TunnelBear now has its apps, website and infrastructure audited every year - to confirm that they're living up to their promises, and we'd like to see Speedify follow suit.

    Apps

    Trying Speedify is simple and hassle-free, especially if you're sampling the free plan. The Downloads page presents you with links to the Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS apps; we grabbed the Windows client, ran the installer, and it set itself up fully in a matter of seconds. An opening screen explained that we had 5GB of data for free (the website says you get 2GB, but we weren't complaining), and once we dismissed that, the program automatically connected to a local UK server, and we were online.

    Our client automatically identified and used our Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections. It displayed icons for both network interfaces, along with assorted connection stats including the total amount of data transferred, and the peak download and upload speeds. You can drill down into the data even more, if you like, and view the stats for today, this month or over the lifetime of your account. This works as advertised, but we're not sure it has much practical value or justifies the space it takes up in the interface.

    A Server panel includes options to choose the fastest server, the best server for torrents, or manually select your preferred country from the full list of 34. This is easy to use, but aside from the ability to choose locations and servers within a country, it's very short on features: there are no server load figures, no ping times, no Favorites system, no search box, no 'Recent connections' list or anything else. 

    The client Settings box is cluttered with a mass of technical features.

    Bonding Mode defines how your internet connections are managed, for instance. The default Streaming mode optimizes traffic for, well, streaming. Speed mode focuses on performance only, while Redundant mode sends all traffic across all available connections to improve reliability, though at the cost of significantly higher data use.

    Transport Mode enables sending your traffic via UDP for speed, TCP for reliability, the new 'TCP Multiple' to accelerate performance by using multiple parallel TCP sockets, and HTTPS to disguise your traffic as web browsing (slower, but also less likely to be blocked).

    Although Speedify always connects to the DNS service on its own servers first, there's support for forwarding them to several external DNS services – Google, Cloudflare, OpenDNS, AdGuard, Quad9 – and there's a Custom option where you can specify whatever IP addresses you need.

    Speedify's most important options cover its rules for connection handling. By default, the system uses Wi-Fi whenever it's available, for example, but you can tell it to use other connection types first, or only to use Wi-Fi when other connections are unavailable. It's possible to set daily or monthly limits, handy for metered connections, or you can even disable Wi-Fi support altogether – it's your call.

    We tried Speedify's channel bonding feature using both Wi-Fi to a local router and a tethered mobile, but didn't see any DiskInternals Video Recovery 7.7.1.0 Registration key Crack performance improvement. We're not going to draw any conclusions from that, though, because results may vary drastically depending on your connections, devices, networks, internet speeds and how you configure Speedify's app. There's no substitute for trying it yourself to see how the technology performs on your local setup. (As we mentioned, you get 5GB traffic for free, no registration required, so this is easy to do.)

    Channel bonding did deliver on its reliability promises, though: we streamed a video, turned our router off, and our movie carried on playing, without a glitch.

    The client isn't quite as intuitive as most VPN apps. The main interface is crammed with not-so-essential data (your fastest upload speed of the day), but doesn't always show you the name of the currently selected location, so you won't necessarily know what you'll get if you hit Connect. There are one or two small usability issues, too, in particular the lack of any desktop notifications to let you know when the service connects or disconnects.

    Overall, though, the client does a decent job, especially considering it must implement the extra complexities of Speedify's channel bonding, and you'll find your way around its interface within a very few minutes.

    The client has some capable functionality under the hood, too. We tried stress testing its kill switch by manually closing TCP connections, for instance, to simulate a connection drop, but the client wasn't concerned. It automatically reconnected in a second or two, and our real IP address was never exposed to the outside world.

    There's an interesting bonus feature in the bundled SpeedifyCLI, a cross-platform tool which allows you to initiate, control and monitor VPN connections from the command line or your own scripts.

    While that's mostly for experts, there are a few occasions where it could be handy for anyone.

    You roboform full crack - Free Activators set up a quick batch file to connect to the VPN before launching a particular app, for instance. How about a microsoft office crack - Crack Key For U task to connect, or disconnect, at a particular time of day? Or you could automatically change VPN settings to suit different apps. It's all very flexible, and you can read more in the SpeedifyCLI manual (see SpeedifyCLI.pdf in the app folder, C:\Program Files (x86)\Speedify on Windows).

    Netflix and streaming

    Speedify claims that it allows you to 'watch region-locked content from back home while traveling.'

    Dig into the support site, though, and you'll find a 'Does Speedify work with Netflix?' article which explicitly says: 'Speedify will not give you capabilities to access other Netflix countries or unblock Disney+, HBO, and Hulu.'

    The company isn't kidding, either. Its apps now have a Streaming Bypass feature which enables connecting directly to Netflix, Disney+, HBO and Hulu, rather than going through the tunnel to stop you being blocked.

    Maybe it would work, anyway, we thought, optimistically? Nope: we tried Netflix, Disney+ and (as Speedify didn't mention it) Amazon Prime Video, but all three services detected and blocked our VPN.

    Even BBC iPlayer, Speedify's one big success from our last review, refused to stream content this time around.

    The situation isn't quite as bad as it sounds (no, really), because while Speedify performed poorly with the best defended platforms, we had no issues accessing targets with less protection, including YouTube.

    If you need to unblock a service we've not mentioned, then, there's at least a chance Speedify will be able to help. And of course, the company doesn't expect you to hand over any cash to find out: just download and install the app, and use the free plan to try and access whatever site you like.

    VPN is necessary for every Internet user who cares about security.

    Most users use the VPN to hide IP and encrypt traffic, but let’s see how much benefit the VPN provides. For example, the ISP blocks Torrent traffic (which is often found where). This is easily noticed when you “surf” the Internet speed alone, but as soon as you put the file up for download, the speed drops dramatically. VPN will help you in this, it will encrypt the traffic and the provider will not know that you download torrents and the speed will not decrease.

    Still a place of application, it is a free wi-fi network. You came to the cafe and there works free wi-fi, but you do not know who is sitting next door in the same cafe, and what if it is an intruder who scans the network traffic (it is not so difficult)? You entered your VK or classmates’ account via such wi-fi, and tomorrow this account has already spammed with your friends and family. Since you “gave” your data to the intruder yourself.

    Often people take a VPN to show sites (services) that they are supposedly from another country. This helps to bypass GEO restrictions. For example, you can’t register for Spotify from Russia, or even if you have a paid subscription to Amédia, you won’t be able to watch movies while you’re on vacation in Turkey or Egypt.  And there are many other places where you can write a book instead of an article. VPN in the 21st century, this is not a secret technology that hackers use to the detriment of, it is a necessary thing for every person who goes online and cares about security.
