BolehVPN allows you to regain your privacy, security and anonymity with their Virtual Private Network which protects and hides your actual network identity by giving you their server’s identity instead of your own.
BolehVPN is a Malaysian company. They offer an impressive selection of servers and affordable plans. Their location and xCloak service makes them a good choice for people who find themselves stuck behind the Great Firewall of China.
Pricing & Plans
BolehVPN offers multiple packages that cover unlimited bandwidth and downloads. You can pay through debit cards, credit cards, PayPal and Bitcoin. Bank transfers is only available in Malaysia.
Free Trial/ Money-back Guarantee
BolehVPN only has a 1-day free trial for new users. You can also buy the seven-day plan and test out the service. They do not offer refunds, however, if there is some kind of technical issue, they’ll refund your money within seven days.
Privacy & Anonymity
BolehVPN does not keep logs of user activity including user access, DNS requests, timestamps, bandwidth usage or user’s IP addresses. They do monitor overall traffic of the server and number of connections in which the server is pushing through but not on an individual level.
BolehVPN Logging Policy
While they do not keep logs of user activity, they do terminate usage of users who have unusual activity on their servers via their general monitoring or receive a specific complaint (hacking/spam) they may turn on logs temporarily to identify abuse of our services (such as DoS or spamming through their servers).
BolehVPN allows torrenting and they even provide seedbox hosting.
BolehVPN offers a ticketing option, forums and a panel system. They have live chat on their site and, when the staff is available, you can use it to get support. Remember that they’re in Malaysia, so customers in the western hemisphere may only be able to use live chat at odd local hours.
BolehVPN has an attractive client that’s also quite easy to navigate. The proxy settings are available on their own tab. Configuring your connection is easy, and there’s a checkbox for the DNS leak protection that’s built into the client.
