UPPERSAFE Pricing Review
Our UPPERSAFE review unveils that the service offers three different plans. For first time users, the Basic Plan is available FREE for an entire 1-year period but has a bandwidth restriction imposed of 1Mbps. After the subscription expires, you will have to pay €1.99 per month. If you opt for the yearly plan, you receive a 25% discount. This lowers the annual pricing to €14.99.
The second plan tends to be a little more expensive, but just like the basic, it comes with a bandwidth restriction of 10Mbps. You can purchase the Express Plan for €3.99 per month. If you go for the annual subscription, you receive a 25% discount. This reduces the annual pricing to €29.99. If you want to leverage the best value, there is a Premium plan available.
This plan offers ultra-high speed of 100Mbps. If you choose the monthly plan, you will have to pay €4.99. Similar to other plans, the yearly subscription comes with a 25% discount. This lowers the annual pricing from €49.99 to €39.99. Users have the ability to upgrade or downgrade plans month to month. From the My Account portal, users can elect to add a month of premium to their Express plan.
NolimitVPN- UPPERSAFE Sign Up
Our NolimitVPN review discloses that signing up for the service is not a difficult task at all. All you have to do is visit the pricing page. Select a plan that best suits your bandwidth needs and budgetary requirements. Then hit the subscribe button. However, if you are entering the site for the first time, you have the ability to get a free trial.
Once you select the plan you want a free trial for, the site will redirect you to the sign up page. Here you will be required to enter your full name, email address, and password. Select the most appropriate option regarding how you learned about the service, and then hit the sign up button.
Upon filling out the sign up information, you will be redirected to the below page. This page tells you that to activate your account and enjoy 7 days of free trial; you have to validate your account. For this, UPPERSAFE sends you a confirmation email.
The confirmation email provides you a link for activating your account and starting your free trial. If you wish to extend your subscription, you even have the opportunity of joining their referral program. Once your account is activated, you will gain access to the VPN dashboard.
UPPERSAFE Free Trial Review
According to our UPPERSAFE review, the company offers a free trial that is valid for 7 days from the date of account activation. Follow the above sign up process to get started with trying out the service. Uppersafe VPN is completely against the misuse of the trial i.e. cumulate it with another. Therefore, it is imperative for customers to come clean. Also, bear in mind that the company has all rights to refuse the free trial, without reasoning/explanations.
UPPERSAFE Accepted Payment Methods
Our UPPERSAFE review discovers that the VPN supports a limited number of payment options. If you want to purchase a plan, you are restricted to using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, Stripe, and PayPal. The provider does not support Bitcoin as of yet. We would definitely like seeing an addition in the list of accepted payment methods.
UPPERSAFE Refund/Money Back Guarantee
UPPERSAFE is quite clear about its policies. The provider does not entertain any kind of refunds at all. It believes that a 7-day free trial on all its plans: Basic, Express, and Premium is good enough for gauging whether the service is worth a customer’s time and money. As a result, if you are looking for a money back guarantee, you might want to check out other providers.
UPPERSAFE Privacy/No Logs Review
The provider states that it records this information to analyze the behavior of visitors and optimize the content of its pages. It clarifies that the data cannot identify a specific person, but without knowing what information is being collected – it’s hard to say how high does UPPERSAFE hold your privacy and anonymity. Since the VPN is located in the EU zone, we are sure that the provider is subject to certain data retention regulations. This means, it could possibly be logging your connection times and bandwidth.
UPPERSAFE Protocols Review
According to our UPPERSAFE review, the service supports all popular range of protocols with strong encryption. You can establish a connection via PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, OpenVPN, and SLL. The PPTP connection uses 128-bit encryption. The IPSec and L2TP protocols boast 256-bit encryption, along with OpenVPN and SSL. This ensures that your browsing and torrenting traffic remains completely secure and anonymous, preventing snooping from your local ISP, governmental agencies, or copyright hunters.
UPPERSAFE Torrenting/P2p Review
The provider does not place any restrictions whatsoever on P2P/Torrenting. You can easily fake your location by changing your IP address and start downloading torrents. You can even use the VPN for accessing websites like Netflix, Spotify, YouTube, Hulu, and BBC iPlayer. However, UPPERSAFE does reveal that it only allows torrents until it receives a DMCA complaint. Any account receiving too many complaints will end up blocked permanently.
UPPERSAFE Firewall Review
Our UPPERSAFE review unveils that the service offers a firewall feature with its VPN that allows for greater protection against cyber threats. From hacks to viruses, the firewall has the capability of blocking everything that may danger your devices and result in data loss. The VPN creates a secure tunnel for all communications and its firewalls make sure that you stay anonymous, while protecting your internet traffic with the best level of security. To show its customers how useful the firewall feature is UPPERSAFE even provides reports for the number of attacks blocked. You can see them here.
UPPERSAFE Support Review
In terms of support, our UPPERSAFE review discloses that the VPN makes sure to cover all bases. Live chat support is available for customers who want to receive help in real-time. Simply click on the bottom right corner of the page on “Leave a Message” and you will have a customer representative at your side for guiding you on how to solve your problem.
If live chat does not help or tends to be inactive at the time, you can always contact the team directly via ticket support. Simply enter your full name, email address, subject, and the problem you are facing. Once done, hit the “Send” button. The support team at UPPERSAFE promises that it will provide you with a response within 48 hours.
In addition to ticket support and live chat, UPPERSAFE even offers a helpful and informative FAQ section. On this page, you will find detailed yet concise answers regarding common issues/problems you might be facing while using the VPN. It is advised to always take a look at the FAQs first, before messaging a customer support representative.
For additional support, UPPERSAFE even offers a very informative and educational blog page. Apart from receiving expert advice regarding using VPNs, you can also receive updates regarding the service itself. Not only does it make it convenient to learn more about the VPN, but it also grants you the ability to gain more knowledge regarding the industry overall.
UPPERSAFE Apps Compatibility Review
In terms of apps compatibility, our UPPERSAFE review discovers that the VPN only offers dedicated clients for Windows and Linux. There are no Android or iOS applications as of yet, but the provider does offer browser extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Bear in mind though these add-ons are not for the purpose of establishing a private connection, but rather checking if you are safe on the internet.
As mentioned earlier, the VPN only offers dedicated applications for Windows and Linux. If you want to download the software, feel free to visit this page. You will also find helpful setup guides for configuring the VPN on a variety of other platforms/devices, which include Apple Mac OS, Android, iPhone, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and CentOS.
UPPERBOX V1 Review
One of the best things about UPPERSAFE is that unlike most providers it offers its own VPN-enabled Wi-Fi router box. It goes by the name UPPERBOX V1 and is available in two subscriptions options. The Express box has a price of €179.99 and allows users to leverage two Wi-Fi AC antennas and four Ethernet ports.
The UPPERBOX Premium is more expensive, costing around €249.99. This router enables users to leverage four Wi-Fi AC antennas for increasing range significantly. Just like the Express box, it comes equipped with four Ethernet ports. Both routers come with a ready-to-use configuration for maximum convenience.
UPPERBOX V2 Review
The UPPERBOX V2 is an upgraded version of the V1. The provider has not yet released the V2 router, but it will be available for sale soon enough. For users who enjoyed using the V1, UPPERSAFE has given the opportunity of reserving the V2 for a measly €99. There is not much detail regarding the specifications of this router, but we will update this review upon its release!
UPPERSAFE Streaming on Demand Review
According to our UPPERSAFE review, one of the best things about the provider is the “Streaming on Demand” feature on its website. The provider tends to be among those few services that offer an extra incentive to their customers.
As the name implies, the Streaming on Demand enables users to watch a video directly from a magnet link or torrent file. This means you do not have to download any heavy software and can immediately enjoy your video, without any hassles! Sign in to your account to enable this feature.
UPPERSAFE Referral Program Review
Our UPPERSAFE review discovers that the VPN also offers a referral program for users to participate in and gain a little extra mileage on their FREE trial. All you have to do is share a referral link around your affiliate resources. If your efforts lead to a purchase/subscription, you gain an additional 60, 30, or 15 days on your trial, depending on the plan.
Our UPPERSAFE review establishes that the VPN offers a remarkable service at a budget-friendly price. Though the routers tend to be a little expensive, the service offers decent support, good speeds, and a nice choice of protocols. We would like seeing an addition in their list of servers.
However, features like the Streaming on Demand, make the price point and their offerings worth standing out. We recommend trying out the service for newbie VPN users. You have a seven-day free trial to be exactly sure what you are signing up for, too!
