ibVPN’s protocols page gives additional details for you to understand tunneling protocols better and which one to use for different purposes. Simply visit the official ibVPN protocols page to know their strengths and devices they work with.

 

IbVPN Encryption and Device Compatibility

 

Before we get to the next point, we would like to ask you a question. If you ever buy a VPN service, what would be your primary and secondary motives? Keeping the ever-increasing online security concerns in mind, we assume that many users would opt for VPN services for maximum protection while surfing the internet.

When it comes to encryption, ibVPN is just as good as any other VPN service provider. It makes your online identity harmless and keeps it safe with SSL and AES 256-bit encryption support. ibVPN uses the most secure algorithms, Blowfish, to keep your online ID clean and protected.

To be fair to ibVPN, their device compatibility is pretty decent and yet there is some margin for improvement. You can set it up on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, Roku Streaming Player, Gaming Consoles (PlayStation and Xbox) and Routers (DD-WRT and Sabai). Would have been great if BlackBerry and Kindle were also mentioned, but just as we said, ibVPN can still improve with device compatibility options.

Sign up for any packages using the sign up page with your credit card, but after 6 hours it will ask you to upgrade.

 

How to Set ibVPN Up on Windows

 

ibVPN can easily be set up on your Windows device, once you have acquired the credentials. Use your credentials to enter the dashboard, download the All-in-one VPN client for Windows from there and run it to install it on your machine. After installation is completed successfully, launch it and enter the details.

Upon opening the client, enter the credentials provided to you by ibVPN. In our case, we used the ones we got while using their free trial.

 

By now you must have observed that several options have been highlighted for you to select. Choose your server and VPN protocol and click on “Connect”.

While you are surfing through ibVPN, you can explore different options as well. They have also given you an option to check your IP address to make sure you are well aware of the IP you are using. The VPN Client for Windows may deceive you with its technical Client outlook, but it is very easy to use.

Simply go and check the Settings on the top of the VPN Client’s window; it gives you several important options regarding usage of ibVPN.

Do you see the ibDNS option on the right side of the app screen? Now start and stop ibDNS at your own will by simply clicking on ibDNS.

In simple words, ibVPN has a good looking Client for Windows. It gives you several options as well and makes a good viewing for a general VPN user.

 

How to Setup/Use ibVPN On Android

There are two ways you can setup/use ibVPN on your Android device. The first option includes downloading the dedicated software application from Google Play Store.

ibVPN Coupons

 

A variety of discount coupons are available online for ibVPN. Its real easy to find currently active coupons on:

Note: none of these coupons are associate with BestVPNProvider, in case they have expired it is best to wait for new discounts coupons to be listed on the same websites.

 

ibVPN Extensions for Chrome/Firefox

 

IbVPN offers browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox and Opera. The brand-new Firefox Add-on is compatible with Firefox Quantum. Also, ibVPN’s browser extensions include a Guest Mode feature. In other words, you can use their extension, without having an ibVPN account. The only disadvantage this option has is that you get disconnected every 10 minutes.

 

ibVPN Customer Support Review

 

ibVPN does an amazing job when it comes to Customer Support. It is the apple of our eye when it comes to marking a VPN service. ibVPN provides information, educates the users, and helps them with technical issues in their VPN Clients.

You can contact ibVPN through Support Tickets, Email, Live Chat, Remote Assistance, and get some quick tips and learn a thing or two by simply reading the FAQs, Knowledge Base and discussions on Forums. Such an excellent customer support is very rare and a joy to use!

 

IbVPN Money Back Guarantee Review

 

The refund policy is also good as ibVPN provides a 15-day money back guarantee to ensure that the users are fully satisfied with its services.

 

IbVPN Payment Options and Logging Policy

 

Such diversity in the payment options is rarely seen in a VPN app client. For some reason, many VPN app providers feel reluctant to provide a wide pool of payment options. But ibVPN on the other hand, goes beyond the line and brings almost all the popular payment options at its users’ service to make sure they are fully facilitated.

ibVPN accepts payments through Paypal, Alipay, Web Money, iDeal, Credit Card, Payza, Cash U, AstroPay, Western Union, Perfect Money and Bitcoin. Moving on to its logging policy, ibVPN very clearly claims on its website that it does not keep ANY sort of logs. Most of the VPN software providers keep meta-logs to improve their services but ibVPN does not even maintain that, hence claims to provide you full anonymity.

 

Conclusion

 

On one hand it was a wonderful experience using the ibVPN and its features in ibvpn review detail, on the other hand, we found some areas where we feel ibVPN can work on and become one of the best, if not the best, VPN service providers.

The servers across different continents increase its value and a solid Blowfish algorithm ensures ibVPN is here to stay in the VPN industry. Many of you might not know this, but it is the most rapidly growing VPN service and has more than 500,000 people on-board using ibVPN’s services. Feel free to ask any question regarding this ibvpn review or share your experiences in comments.

    I read many reviews regarding speed issues that I might encounter with ibVPN but even so, I have decided to test the free trial. Previous providers, I have tested even they had great reviews, were not necessarily suitable for my needs.

    I have decided to upgrade to a paid plan. To my writing this review, speed is good. I have no problem watching online videos. Overall experience with the service has been good so far. Let us see how it is in the future.

  13. Alex says:

    Great experience with IBVPN for the last 3 years. Can’t remember how many times these guys came up with new and helpful features. The apps are working flawlessly and I couldn’t expect more from a VPN provider.

    You should definitely check the new Android app. It works great on my Nvidia Shield!! Made my day!

  15. Bob Hasell says:

    This is the best service I have used for P2P & torrent download. The speed is great, there is a kill switch feature implemented into the windows client and the company states a NO Logs policy.

  21. Vüsal Rino says:

    Best vpn to directly access TOR. They provide servers that connect you to TOR. Only ibvpn and nordvpn offer this great feature for people like me who browser onion sites.

    With other vpn you need to connect to a vpn server and start tor browser, connect to TOR and then browse onion.

    With ibvpn you connect to VPN and you can use regular browser (incognito I recommend) to browse onion sites.

  22. F.P says:

    I simply love your site. I have read most of the reviews on your site. This had helped me to decide what VPN to choose. Past week, I have chosen ibvpn and I don’t regret it.

  25. molnay says:

    ibvpn is one of the few providers that offer access to SoftEther protocol – faster and safer than OpenVPN. it should be a must for all providers!

    • admin says:

      Hello Molnay, thanks for commenting. You are right on that. ibVPN is one of the few providers that support SoftEther. If you’re looking for more names, you should add Hide.me and Hide IP VPN to your list. Let us know your experience with regards to security and encryption!

  26. Manuele says:

    Nothing to complain of. On the contrary. One of the best experiences I had with a VPN provider

  29. Misha says:

    I did a lot of research before committing to a subscription and i have to say that i was very surprised that such an affordable service can be this good. At the beginning, i had messed up my setup so i had to get in touch with the support team and my problem was solved in under 5 minutes. It was really a stellar performance and this was one of the experiences which made me buy a year’s subscription. I can recommend ibVPN anyone from complete amateurs to experienced users.

    • admin says:

      Hello Misha, we are always happy to find out that users of a particular service are content regarding their experience with a certain provider. Your comment has further justified that IBVPN does indeed work hard on pleasing its customers. Thanks for sharing!

  30. jonarcher says:

    Just looked for VPN providers and came across this one using this review, had no issues with their service so far , have been using it for somewhat a little over 3 months now.
    However they do have a different looking app for win, at least mine looks newer than the ones in this review

    • ibVPN says:

      You are right. We have a new Windows app that looks different from the one presented in the review. The new All-In-One VPN client is smarter and faster. We hope you will enjoy it. Any feedback is highly appreciated.

  31. jonarcher says:

    A fried suggested this to me he uses it for gaming, but i did the 24 Hour trial and used it to stream videos of different countries and it worked perfectly !

  32. Ken says:

    You should really update your posts, as their service is one of the best I’ve had. On a 50Mb download speed I get 35 Mb download speed. This is the highest speed I’ve had after testing multiple vpn services.

  33. Ed E. Lynch says:

    I am using their service since 3 years already. I have used other clients for approx 6 years already, however I love ibVPN specials like the one with Bitdefender. In my case, this is a great bundle to have for extra privacy.

    I really admire their service because I see continuous development of their VPN clients, continuous movement.

    I use the iOS client and the Win one. Not sure how are they on other platforms. The Win client is my favorite because offers a lot of features for privacy. However, I don’t know how to use them all yet.

    • admin says:

      We love hearing about clients enjoying a particular service. It only makes it easier for us to make a more informed decision regarding VPNs. Thanks for sharing your experience regarding ibVPN. Yes, the multitude of privacy features can get a little tough to understand. In such circumstances, it is best to stick to the basics. Choose the highest security offering protocol: OpenVPN with AES 256 bit encryption!

  34. Mehigh says:

    Wide range of protocols and devices supported with apps for most used devices. Their service is great both as speed as for quality. Connections are stable and reliable. The support team is top. Totally recommend them.

    • admin says:

      We agree! The customer support has been helpful in providing us more insight into the service and their offerings. Thanks for sharing your experience.

  35. Siam says:

    The AIO application for windows has been updated long time ago. The new interface is modern and the app can be used in basic or in advanced mode. It connects instantly to servers and the feature I considered to be the best is the Kill Switch.

  36. Till says:

    Servers have good speed for the money, service is great, only downside is, that serverIDs change from time to time, makes maintenance on my side a little more difficult.

    • admin says:

      You might want to consider choosing a service that offers dedicated VPN servers for connection. Some examples of reliable VPN providers are: PureVPN and NordVPN.

  37. Bernt says:

    They have awesome support staff. Adding lots of new servers, update protocols, improving app, offering great value for money.

    • admin says:

      Hi Bernt
      I agree, its one of the most underrated providers in the world. We are currently reviewing the brand for 2017, should be up soon.

  38. GaGh says:

    I started with the trial and considering that they offer money back guarantee I decided to buy. The nice part is that I got a Bitdefender activation key for free. I do not know how much that costs but it is a nice gift 🙂

  39. Adrian says:

    This review should be updated! The latest versions of the ibvpn apps are much nicer now and full of useful features. Anyway, I just wanna say ibvpn is my favorite vpn provider. I use it from Greece and it works great! You should defenitly try the ios app.

    • admin says:

      We are looking into it, and will definitely come up with an entire revamp of the ibVPN review soon. Keep following!

  40. Christine says:

    Awesome speed, no logs and no drops!
    ibVPN is my favourite VPN provider. Considering the fact that I’m not a computer Jedi and that the support team is friendly and very helpful, I’ll be their customer for a long time from now.

    • admin says:

      Looks like there is another satisfied customer! 10 points to ibVPN. Thanks for sharing your experience with us Christine.

  41. Samuel says:

    ibVPN lets you try its services for free which I liked a lot. It helped in checking their services out before I could buy them. The only thing confusing are its pricing plan. Took me a while before I could figure out what I want.
