Introduction

 

Seychelles based Trust.Zone VPN is a fairly new online privacy & security provider and has been in operation since 2015. Trust.Zone VPN maintains its competency over robust online privacy, user anonymity and data security rather than acting as an online unblocker.

In this Trust.Zone Review, we will taking an in depth look at the provider’s pricing, servers, compatibility, customer support services, privacy policies, security, payment methods provided and apps.

Trust.Zone VPN For Torrenting – Analysis And Testing

 

Trust.Zone VPN promises no throttling for any kind of traffic on its servers, allowing you to enjoy a completely free online experience. Trust.Zone VPN also allowsP2P & Torrents downloads on its servers, no server has been specified hence it’s safe to assume P2P & Torrent capabilities are present on all servers.

DO remember that not all regions allow torrents within their cyberspace, refrain from downloading torrents over the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Sweden servers. An exhaustive Trust.Zone review of VPN’s policies also unveils that the provider does not discriminate against any service, server, IP address, torrent trackers, website or software.

One factor remains a problem with Trust.Zone VPN, that being its radically increasing users. This not only limits the number of connections that can be made over their network, but slows down bandwidth for the entire network. Various users over social networks have complained how the service has slowed down over 2016.

Server speed tests during Trust.Zone review were not reliable and I will publish results from a faster server after conducting real time testing with a controlled 10 MBPS connection soon.

 

Trust.Zone VPN Review of Customer Support

 

Trust.Zone offers customer support through:

  1. On-site FAQ
  2. Ticket System

The on-site FAQ section doesn’t offer the most user friendly interface,but, offers answers to most common queries &issues.The FAQ addresses important questions including those about VPN, Trust.Zone & its services, service errors, app issues, accounts issues, payment issues,and compatibility.

The tutorials section has been merged in the Downloads section available on the navigation menu. Tutorials for all operating systems & devices other than Windows are available in the download section.

In case you cannot find a solution in the FAQ, Trust.Zone VPN offers a dedicated Ticket System for advanced troubleshooting. The Ticket System has a very good interface and can be found by clicking the SUPPORT button from the website navigation.

Trust.Zone VPN’s Ticket System is available from Monday to Friday 6 AM to 4 PM (GMT +0), so make sure not to ask for help on a weekend. Once support feature I really missed during Trust.Zone review was the absence of the Live Chat option which was previously available from the provider.

 

Trust.Zone Payment Methods Review

 

Trust.Zone offers a brilliant list of payment methods considering it is a new provider. Currently, Trust.Zone VPN provides the following merchants to process subscriptions:

  1. Bitcoin –RecommendedPayment Method with Exclusive 10% Discount
  2. PayPal
  3. Credit Cards & Debit Cards (VISA and MasterCard)
  4. Avangate –Credit & Debit Cards, QIWI,WebMoney, Ban Transfer & Ali Pay
  5. Pay Pro Global –QIWI, WebMoney, Ban Transfer & Ali Pay

After careful review of Trust.Zone’s payment methods, I was delighted to see that the provider itself encourages using anonymous payment methods. I can’t confirm if this is a customer delight feature or just a marketing gimmick to increase payments through Bitcoin & PayPal.

 

Trust.Zone VPN Compatibility

 

Trust.Zone VPN is compatible with the following operating systems:

  1. Windows
  2. Mac
  3. Linux
  4. iOS
  5. Android
  6. Gaming Consoles
  7. DDWRT Routers
  8. Smart TVs

 

trust zone vpn apps

Currently, Trust.Zone only offers desktop software for Windows, while all other operating systems & devices require manual configuration. Windows users can download the desktop app after registering a free account. Guides for all other operating systems and devices can be found on the download page.

 

Trust.Zone VPN Windows App Review

 

Trust.Zone VPN only offers an app for Windows, all other devices & OS require manual configuration.

 

trust.zone windows app software

 

Trust.Zone VPN offers a very well designed app for Windows that offers great features including a very simple user interface, one click connectivity, an internet kill switch, renewal from with the app, and an excellent status window to keep track of your speed & usage.

While reviewing the Trust.Zone VPN Windows app I was left confused because the settings menu offered connecting through Proxy servers in addition to OpenVPN. The provider does not mention any usage of Proxy servers. Always ensure that you are connected using the OpenVPN option from the settings since proxy servers do not provide anonymity when online.

Server switching is very easy & quick, and all you have to do is click on the server you want to change to. I really liked the simplicity & ease of the app making it ridiculously easy for anyone including beginners to go around the interface without much help.

 

Trust.Zone VPN Protocols and Encryption

 

Trust.Zone VPN offers only two tunneling protocols, narrowing down choice to:

  1. OpenVPN
  2. L2TP / IPSec

You can either chose the faster OpenVPN for streaming, torrents and web browsing or the highly secure L2TP protocol for file transfers, email, VoIP and other data intensive activities. When using the OpenVPN protocol your data is encrypted using AES 256bit encryption, while theL2TP Protocol also employs AES 256 bit encryption.

My Trust.Zone review identifies the brand as being a very safe privacy provider and takes no chances over user privacy & anonymity. The absence of many common tunneling protocols and inclusion of highest grade encryption confirm that TrustZone VPN considers user privacy & anonymity over silly unblocking requirements for streaming videos & downloading torrents at high speeds.

 

Trust.Zone Logging and Privacy Policies Review

 

Trust.Zone VPN offers one of the most attractive privacy policies that I have reviewed to date. The Privacy Policy revealed that the only information TrustZone VPN record about you is an email (which can be a fake one)and that’s all.

Trust.Zone VPN does not store any activity log files and connection times. All usage data is kept anonymous cannot be connected to a particular account due to shared IP addresses being used. TrustZone VPN does mention in its policy that copyright infringement is STRICTLY NOT ALLOWED.

 

trust.zone logs and privacy policy

The provider also identifies that Google cookies are used on its website and hence Google may collect behavior and device information through the Trust.Zone website. Trust.Zone also uses cookies to collect website performance statistics and this data does not link to subscriber’s devices or personal identities.

Trust.Zone VPN offers a superb free trial allowing prospects to test the service in real time over 71 servers. Unlimited bandwidth is allowed over 1 device to successfully test the service for speed, stability, performance, reliability and compatibility. Trust.Zone free trial gives you:

Trust.Zone VPN Reddit Reviews

 

After comprehensively reviewing Trust.Zone VPN, I took to Reddit to study just what subscribers & other users are discussing about the provider.

Comment from discussion PIA or Trust.Zone?.

In case you are using OpenDNS Trust Zone VPN leaks the IP address. If you are using the default Google DNS. TrustZone will not leak your IP address no matter what you are doing online.

User CryptoSeb raises an argument talking about how Trust Zone also offers dedicated IP addresses. Dedicated IP addresses are technically useless for online privacy as they point all activities to one particular user. But, after confirming with the provider’s support team and navigating through each and every one of the provider’s pages I found nothing that even translates to DEDICATED IP ADDRESSES, so another possible false review.

I also tested the UK, USA, Netherlands and Sweden servers. Due to my location ping times were no that attractive but the speed was excellent for streaming video & music, while torrent speeds were a bit ordinary.

One important notion to bring up is that please stop judging VPN services based on the rating sheeting available on “That One Privacy Site”. Several good VPN providers have been needlessly bashed in the ranking, the reason I suggest this is because I have tested most of these services, and they have worked fine. Reddit users seem to blindly trust this particular VPN chart, but kindly always consider testing services yourself rather than believing a colorful table.

  1. Coupon Birds
  2. Stack Social

  5. OZ Bargain
  6. MMoDM
  7. Coupon Koo

 

Trust.Zone VPN Crack

 

Like all other software TrustZone also has cracked versions of its older apps that provide premium subscriptions without paying for them. As a personal recommendation do not use any Trust.Zone VPN crack, these cracked apps are more of a privacy hazard to your devices & home network. Consider this, why would a person hack a VPN app and give it to more than a million users for free?

Most TrustZone VPN crack links in Google searches diverted me to “404 Errors”, i.e. they were taken down. I did manage to find this one crack for TrustZone on YouTube, I take no responsibility for what you do with this video.

**Best VPN Provider does not support cracked VPN apps. In case you wish to use any BVP must not be held responsible for privacy & hardware issues. **
