Privacy & Anonymity
This is one area where WorldVPN really lags behind. Their site has very little information on it that’s of use, and we weren’t able to find anything that definitively answered whether or not they logged data. Perhaps it’s on the site, somewhere, but they make it very hard to find.
There do not appear to be any restrictions on torrenting over WorldVPN.
Customer support is available via a live chat window and a ticketing system.
We tested the free version of WorldVPN, which is designed to give you an assessment of the service. The client is a bit behind in terms of design, but serves its purpose well, putting all the necessary controls right in front of you. It’s not really competitive with what other VPN services offer.
Windows, Mac OSX, Android, IPhone, etc.
For systems aside from Windows, WorldVPN can be configured manually or via open-source clients.
WorldVPN Baseline Speedtest
WorldVPN’s speed was not particularly impressive. As you can see, it dropped us from over 40Mbps to 5.45Mbps. That’s still fast enough for most uses, but not fast enough to be competitive with other providers.
IPCheck and DNSLeak
WorldVPN did change our IP, but our DNS server addresses did leak, so manually configuring your own DNS servers on this provider is advisable.
- Large server network
- Free trial
- Windows, Mac, iOS, Android
- Simple client
The server network for this provider is quite large. The prices are also reasonable, though there are other providers that offer unlimited plans for similar prices to WorldVPN’s 15GB package.
Areas for Improvement
The website is very thin on the details that most people are likely to want, such as specific and simple information on the company’s privacy policies.
WorldVPN’s service isn’t bad, but it’s not really competitive with the other options out there. For very large networks, VyprVPN, HMA and IPVanish all offer better solutions, as do many other providers. While WorldVPN does have an attractive price on their least expensive package, it’s more limited than what most services offer for just a bit more money.
