Privacy and Anonymity

StrongVPN does not log. From their site:

“During our normal course of duties, we do not monitor, record or store logs for any single customers VPN activity. We do not store web traffic data, including websites visited, files downloaded, etc.

We will however record the following data:

1. time, date and location vpn connection was made
2. duration of the vpn connection
3. bandwidth used during the connection

This information is regularly cycled within our servers. This information enables StrongVPN to enforce our Terms of Service, spam, crimes using the service, etc. If there is a violation we will use these trace logs to determine which account is in violation. After lengthy analysis of this data, we will terminate the service and/or take further action.”

You can hook up to StrongVPN by creating a VPN connection in your network settings or by using their client.
Their client is easy to install and there’s really no technical knowledge required to use it. When you switch servers, you’ll be notified that you’re using up credits. The screen is shown in the screenshots below.

We hooked up to a speed testing server in Washington DC from Albuquerque over a 50Mbps/5Mbps connection. As you can see from the speed test, our download and upload rates were barely effected with the VPN on. The speeds were very impressive.

IP Check and DNSLeak

DNS did leak on StrongVPN, so it’s probably best to configure it manually. Our IP address was effectively changed, however.

What We Liked

StrongVPN is a very well-known brand, which gives it some credibility from the start. The worldwide network and number of long-term customers also make it a compelling choice for a VPN provider.

Areas for Improvement

The limitations on server switching make this company less competitive than it should be. Their prices aren’t remarkably lower than other providers, and putting a cost on server switching drives those prices up unnecessarily.


StrongVPN has a long history, which indicates that they’re good at what they do. Their service bears this out, and they’re a solid choice in many regards.

They’re probably not the best choice for P2P, but for privacy and security they’re very good.

    Does not provide sstp connections as it advertises. Took the techs 2 hours to get a connection.

    used to be ok/average, now it’s a pile of crap, maybe I got the wrong guy, but he was useless, I’m in China, luckily I also have another VPN which is way more stable, to the extent I never need any tech assistance, something fundamentally wrong with the strong platform in China. renewed my subscription in Nov 2014, but next time no chance, next time I’ll try another alternative provider
