SaferVPN Review

New VPN service providers are hitting the market with one common promise of providing pure VPN connections. New VPN players however often find it difficult to compete against more established VPN providers as most VPN customers already trust and are satisfied with the kind of service they are getting.

VPN Creative is where we give the spotlight to all VPN service providers. This time, we’re going to give SaferVPN (http://www.safervpn.com) a test run. Let’s see if this VPN provider performs up to par with the more reliable providers in the industry today. Is SaferVPN a safer choice for a VPN service? Let’s find out.

Pricing Plans

As far as pricing goes, SaferVPN offers more affordable rates than the competition. The VPN company is offering $8.99 for a month’s subscription, allowing 5 simultaneous connections at a time.

SaferVPN also offer plans for multiple-month subscription commitments. There is an annual plan that costs $65.88 per year allowing users to save $42 in subscription fees. There is also a 2-year VPN package that gives more saving opportunities! For only $78.96 for the duration of 2 years (or $3.29 per month), users can maximize their online security with the full premium SaferVPN product.

Subscriptions can be paid via third-party payment providers: PayPal, Bitcoin, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. All SaferVPN plans come with a 30-day money back guarantee policy.

Installation & Configuration

To get started using SaferVPN, here’s how to install the VPN client on your PC or mobile device. SaferVPN will work on a Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android platforms. There is also a Chrome extension that can choose to install to get the most out of the VPN plan.

Installing the VPN client is straightforward that even a non-tech person can do it without hassle. After downloading the software, simply double-click on it to start the installation process. The entire installation procedure should only take a couple of minutes. Guides for manual installation are also available on the website.

Even the VPN’s software is impressive. The client app is simple, neat and gets the job done right away. Log in from the client app with the login details you used to sign up for the VPN service.

The SaferVPN application lets you connect to the location you prefer. SaferVPN has numerous selections of servers. The VPN company has server presence in 35 countries including in Singapore, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Brazil, Israel, Italy, Japan, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United States, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Austria.

On the VPN application, there is also an option on what VPN protocol to use. SaferVPN supports OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec and PPTP. By default, the VPN client app is set to Automatic which connects to OpenVPN but can fallback to either L2TP or PPTP when a local restriction ever occurs.

The app also has a function to run a speed test and create a support ticket.

Customer Support

SaferVPN has a prompt live chat support when we tried it during morning time CST. However, we didn’t get the same promptness when we contacted support at a later time of the day. So, we’re assuming that the customer support is not available 24/7.

The other way to contact customer support is by submitting a ticket. A knowledge base is also available on the website wherein solutions to common problems are detailed.

Privacy Policy

Safer Social Ltd., the company behind SaferVPN emphasize that they do not sell, trade or transfer users personal information to third parties. Under its Privacy Policy, the VPN company does not seem to have data collection and storage practices which are often an issue with VPN services.

Some VPN companies collect certain data like timestamps of VPN connections/activities, the amount of data transmitted during a session and IP addresses used to connect to the VPN network.

Without any data collection policies, this gives SaferVPN an upper hand compared to its competition that store user data.

SaferVPN Review Conclusion

We had our doubts when we first heard about SaferVPN. But after testing the service, we can say that it’s one of the most effective VPN services that we have tried so far. We were looking for some flaws with the VPN service but we didn’t encounter any problems. VPN connections were stable and impressively fast.

Overall, we are extremely pleased and surprised with how SaferVPN performed during our test. We’d be happy to recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable and reliable VPN service.
