Privacy & Anonymity
LiquidVPN has a no-logging policy, a real advantage. They also have a warrant canary on their site, which is accessible right from their client, see below. They do say that they’ll forward DMCA complaints, however.
LiquidVPN does allow you to torrent on their networks. Use their non-US servers for the best security.
LiquidVPN has a ticketing system for support available through the user control panel. The LiquidVPN website also has a comprehensive knowledgebase and troubleshooting section which would be very helpful for both new and experienced users.
LiquidVPN uses the Viscosity client, but they’ve added some features to it that make it quite handy. It has a built-in leak test and speed test. You can even click an option on the menu and go right to the provider’s warrant canary.
Other than that, it’s Viscosity, so the client isn’t much different than what a lot of other providers offer. That’s not a bad thing. Viscosity is a good client and it’s easy to use, so there’s no real drawback here.
LiquidVPN has a custom client for Windows, Mac and Android. Their site provides detailed setup instructions for other systems.
VPN Server Locations
The speed test for LiquidVPN was very impressive. With the VPN hooked up, our connection barely slowed, as you can see from the screenshots below. The connection was tested on a 50Mbps/5Mbps connection.
IPCheck and DNSLeak Test
LiquidVPN did very well in this regard, effectively hiding our IP and our DNS servers. There were no issues to report.
The most notable feature from LiquidVPN is the modulating IP, which changes your IP constantly while you’re online. It’s unique to this provider and something worth exploring.
Other good features include:
- L2TP, OpenVPN, SSTP
- Static IP available
- Multiple simultaneous connections
- Modulating IP feature
- No logging
Additional Bonus Features

- Weekly Signed Warrant Canary

Areas for Improvement
Cancelling your account to take advantage of the seven-day money-back is a bit blocky.
LiquidVPN has some very nice features for privacy buffs. It is a US-based company, which isn’t ideal but, beyond that, they really do go out of their way to protect user privacy. They have strong encryption, their own IP changing technology, they don’t log and they take Bitcoin, so they’re definitely working hard to provide good anonymity protection. On top of that, they not only have a warrant canary, but make it easy for you to get to it, which demonstrates a commitment to transparency on their part.
