SlickVPN is a US-based provider that has quite a few things going for it. They offer a large network of nations to choose from, a low monthly price and good privacy protection.
Pricing and Plans
SlickVPN is very competitive where pricing is concerned. Their packages are as follows:
- Monthly access for $5
- Three months for $10
- Six months for $20
- Yearly for $28.99
- Block for $0.75 per day
You can buy block access accounts for four-, eight-, twelve-, sixteen- or twenty-day terms. The block access doesn’t automatically renew and you can add to it as you please.
Free Trial / Money Back Guarantee
SlickVPN offers a thirty-day money back guarantee with their packages.
Privacy & Anonymity
SlickVPN does not keep logs. From their website:
“Although we do not record, monitor or store any logs for any customers usage of our SlickVPN products, we do keep the following data:
- Length of time of the connection
- Timestamp (date and server time) of the connection to SlickVPN
Our logs are stored in RAM on our servers instead of written to hard drive. Once our servers are shutdown or rebooted, all data for that server is deleted. We restart every server on a routine basis. “
SlickVPN does allow torrents. If you get a DMCA complaint while your connection is live, they will stop the session. They don’t have the ability to match IP addresses to users from logs, however, as their system uses shared IPs.
SlickVPN offers customer support around the clock.
SlickVPN has a client that’s, well, pretty slick. The interface is easy to understand and very streamlined. It has a built-in speed test feature and quite a few others that make it suitable for serious users.
Windows, Mac OSX, Android, IPhone, etc.
SlickVPN has a client for Windows and Mac. Android, iOS, Ubuntu Linux and routers can be set up manually.
SlickVPN Baseline Speedtest
The speed test for SlickVPN was impressive, with the effect on our connection speed being negligible at best. Testing on a 50Mbps/5Mbps line, the speed was almost as fast as it was without the VPN connected.
IPCheck and DNSLeak
The IP and DNS did not leak when using this service. This test used OpenVPN over the provided client.
- PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN
- Mobile compatibility
- Low prices
- Block access
- Hotspot security
- NAT Firewall
- Static IPs available
The block access option is great for people who don’t need a VPN for everyday use, but who want to make sure they have one available for protecting their privacy when necessary.
Areas for Improvement
The client only offers OpenVPN. Adding PPTP and L2TP to the client would be an improvement.
