Proxy-N-VPN is headquartered in Romania. The company has been in business since 2012. The jurisdiction and length of time in operation are both good but, when we tested their network, there were issues with this provider that made us go against recommending them. The company offers a range of different services, but this review concentrates on their VPN.
Pricing & Plans
Proxy-N-VPN offers private and Shared VPN. The pricing is as follows:
- One month, private VPN: $6.50
- One month, shared VPN: $3.50
You can pay with PayPal and credit cards.
Free Trial/ Money-back Guarantee
There’s a three-day money back guarantee with this provider. There is no free trial.
Privacy & Anonymity
Proxy-n-VPN does log your traffic, and in detail. They use the data to monitor performance, according to their website. Though they do say that they destroy the data after analyzing it, they certainly do keep logs.
Provider Logging Policy
Their servers automatically record the following information about each request to their site.
- Request Protocol Type – HTTP/HTTPS
- The requested URL
- Your original and destination IP addresses
- Size and Mime types of HTTP pages/transfers
- Operating System type and Browser information
- Referrer URL address and Domain Name
- The date and time
- Version of Encryption Algorithm supported by the Browser
They have implemented strict technical and organizational measures to ensure that the log data is protected at all times and destroyed after statistical analysis by their security and performance engineering teams.
Torrenting is not allowed on this service.
After not being able to hook up to the VPN server we were given when we signed up to the service, we contacted customer support and requested a new VPN server.
The customer support wasn’t really able to answer any questions. We tried the new server, and it failed, as well, on two different computers.
We were unable to really test this product other than having it fail to connect at all.
This service can be used with Android and iPhone devices. There are instructions on the Proxy-N-VPN site that detail how to configure a range of devices.
VPN Server Locations
We couldn’t test the speed of this VPN because both server addresses we were given failed to make a connection.
- Shared and private VPN
- Proxy server option
- Unlimited traffic
- PPTP, L2TP, SSTP
Areas for Improvement
There’s a lot with this service that could have been better.
This service has issues. The customer service response was not helpful, merely saying it worked for them, and getting a new VPN server option didn’t fix anything. The website is clunky. The company doesn’t offer OpenVPN, logs traffic and doesn’t allow torrenting. Our preferred providers offer much better service.
