What is BeeVPN?
Established 5 years ago and headquartered in Denmark, BeeVPN is a private network service that promises to deliver excellent security and quality support. The service uses an incredibly high pricing model but proves to be rather ambiguous.
There have been no updates on the website since 2012. However, the VPN still proves to be operational, receiving many orders for a subscription. Are you looking to dig deeper about the provider? If so, then read this comprehensive BeeVPN review.

BeeVPN Pricing Review
Our BeeVPN review unveils that the provider offers a single plan, divided into different pricing when you commit to longer subscriptions. The monthly plan starts at a high €11.99 (translating into $14.31), which allows you to leverage unlimited bandwidth/data, firewall, dedicated IPs, and Premier support.
The 3-months plan lowers the monthly pricing to €7.99. This means you pay a total of €23.97. Features you receive are the same. You can further leverage cheaper pricing with the annual subscription, which drops the monthly pricing to €6.59. This means you pay €79.08 for 12-months access.
This definitely puts BeeVPN in the “above average” pricing bracket, but it just does not end here. The provider uses a clever tactic of separating the costs for the mobile add-on. This further raises the cost of the product you finally decide to buy.
As you can see below, an additional €1.19 were added to the total pricing for selecting to use the mobile add-on. Of course, this may not prove very useful, when almost every VPN provider in the marketplace – offers dedicated mobile apps for no additional costs.
Accepted Payment Methods
According to our BeeVPN review, the provider offers a wide range of signup options. Among these, including Diner’s Club and Bitcoin for anonymous payment. Other choices include the usual Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, UCB, PayPal, SecureCode, and Electron.
Refund/Money Back Guarantee
Our BeeVPN review discovers that the provider does not offer any refund/money back guarantee. Neither do customers have an option for signing up for a free trial. This means, if you need to try the service, you will have to buy a subscription. This is quite unreasonable, considering the high pricing.
According to our BeeVPN review, the login process for the provider is quite simple. All you have to do is sign up for an account here. Select a plan that best suits your needs and requirements. Then enter the information required in the below screenshot.
Once the provider verifies the payment and the checkout process is complete, you will receive a verification email. Click on the link in the email to activate your account. Enter your credentials at the login page to gain access to the BeeVPN user dashboard.
Privacy and Security
In terms of security, our BeeVPN review unveils that the provider manages to do quite well. You have a built-in firewall that offers good protection from hacking attempts and viruses. Thanks to the military-grade encryption, you can also unblock any site/service at the utmost level of convenience.
BeeVPN Protocols Review
Our BeeVPN review unveils that the service uses Cisco’s high-security DTLS technology. It does not support a range of protocols like other providers, but all connections use OpenVPN configuration with 256-bit encryption by default. This shows an impressive commitment to security.
BeeVPN Torrenting/P2p Review
Unlike most providers, BeeVPN does not impose any restrictions for P2P torrenting. You can use any server except for US and UK for downloading/uploading torrent files. Thanks to high-level encryption, all your torrenting traffic passes through a secure tunnel, away from the eyes of the government and local ISPs.
BeeVPN Logs Review
There is no information on the BeeVPN website itself regarding the logging policies of the provider. As a result, we thought of sending a query to the support department. The reply we received cleared that the provider only keeps activity logs of total bytes in and out per user session.
Does BeeVPN Work on Netflix?
BeeVPN uses a SeeAllTV extension that allows users from all over the world to access their favorite entertainment from hit streaming websites like Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer. Switch freely between different versions of the sites from varied locations, like US/UK/CA Netflix.
BeeVPN Tutorial/Support Guides Review
According to our BeeVPN review, the provider mentions on the very front page of their website that they offer 24/7/365 support. However, it proves to be rather ambiguous regarding how to access the support. We eventually found an email address on the login page. That is the only medium of support you have apart from a Facebook page.
We sent a general query regarding the VPN technology and its logging policies to test the effectiveness and swiftness of the support team. Lucky for us, we received a reply within an hour or so. This assures the claim that you will receive instant support.
BeeVPN Apps Compatibility Review
In terms of apps compatibility, our BeeVPN review unveils that the provider supports all standard computer operating systems (Windows, Mac, and Linux), along with DD-WRT routers, iOS devices, PlayStation 3, and Apple TV. The only thing missing is a dedicated Android application.
When it comes to downloading the relevant software for your device/platform, you can always visit the Guide page of BeeVPN. Here you will find separate manual guides for a variety of devices/OS, along with downloadable files. Click on this link to get started!
How to Setup BeeVPN on iPhone
Though BeeVPN does offer an application for iOS users, there are certain steps you must take to ensure successful installation. The software is not available for download on iTunes. However, the provider does give you a helpful blog for guiding you throughout the process.
How to Setup BeeVPN on Android
As mentioned earlier, our BeeVPN review unveils that the provider does not offer a dedicated app for Android users. This is rather uncanny, but if you want to still use BeeVPN – you can always consider opting for the old route of using OpenVPN configuration files.
Does BeeVPN Support Cisco?
Yes, indeed BeeVPN does support Cisco’s high-security DTLS technology. This ensures that you receive a high level of encryption and anonymity when browsing the web or indulging in activities like downloading/streaming pirated content from software like Popcorn Time and Kodi.
BeeVPN on Kodi
Though BeeVPN does not offer a dedicated extension for Kodi users, you can always choose to download the Windows, Mac or Linux client. Establish a secure connection by connecting to any VPN server and then resume your activities on Kodi with maximum protection by your side.
Our BeeVPN review establishes that the provider needs a lot of work to do in order to improve its service. For the extremely high pricing, there is not much available to impress customers. In fact, much of the website proves to be ambiguous. If you want to receive good value for your money, you might want to try out service like ExpressVPN, PureVPN, and NordVPN.
