BolehVPN Review & Test 2022 - Keep This in Mind Before Buying

With is excellent reliability and easy to use software, BolehVPN could just be the product that you are looking for. And that it does it at a reasonable price is another reason to sign up. It's also capable of unblocking Netflix, though its streaming speed and quality can't compare to a premium service like ExpressVPN.

The VPN market place is very crowded and searching for your best option can be quite confusing and even a little daunting. So probably the best thing to do is to decide on what you need a VPN to do for you and then find the one that best meets those needs.

The need to use a VPN usually breaks down into two categories. The first is security and privacy. This means that you want to be anonymous on the Internet, or as anonymous as you possibly can be. You want to be confident that your computer and Internet activity are not being watched or tracked by unknown third parties, whether they be governmental, commercial or something more unsavoury. For this part, BolehVPN promises you complete security and peace of mind, whether your needs are as simple as hiding you Internet history to more ‘military grade’ usage of the Internet. I did not delve deeper into what that actually meant! Needless to say, what Boleh, like many others offer, or claim to offer, is a safe, secure and private service and is right up there with some of the best providers around, including the likes of IPVanish, ExpressVPN and VyprVPN.  For example, Boleh state clearly that they do not keep logs of your activities. What this means, in theory, is that should a legal body in one country demand, and even gain the right to, access to their servers and databases, your activities will not show up on any of their records. You will still be anonymous. Great!

The second use of a VPN is much more straightforward. A VPN can allow you access to video streaming and television services that are country restricted. So if you live abroad or are on holiday and still want access to your favourite TVs shows then a VPN will do the trick. This is one of the main reasons someone will want to use a VPN and basic products like TunnelBear are usually sufficient. It is simple to install and run and rarely lets you down. But then, I discovered BolehVPN and once I got over some basic issues (which I will discuss in a bit), I fell in love with what they could do for me. Access was so much quicker and streaming just felt so much faster. I wasn't worried that my picture could freeze at any moment. Using Boleh also didn't significantly slow down my laptop, as many other VPN software services are prone to do. Ultimately, it did what I needed, quickly, easily and seamlessly. But where Boleh did let me down was when trying to download torrents. I tried a few different configurations, but none of them gave me anywhere near the download speed that I achieve when not using a VPN at all. This may not be an issue for you, but if it is, then I would suggest using the 7-day trial and spend some time playing around with the settings to see what works best for you.

Using its proprietary ‘xCloak’ software, BolehVPN provides a smooth and service that gave me access to all the UK television stations that I have access to, including both free to view and paid for access. That meant that I could quite happily switch from watching the BBC one minute to logging on and using my subscription for SKY without any problems. While it does have a dedicated server to unblock Netflix, traffic congestion could cause extremely slow load-times. If you want to stream seamlessly, I recommend using a premium provider like ExpressVPN over Bohleh.

It also provides a strong and secure level of privacy for all your Internet usage and identity protection. For me, I want simplicity and that is what Boleh gave me. What I did notice was that it did not present a great many countries of origin from which you show from, but it did allow you to choose from some of the main countries in the market, the USA & Canada, the UK, Germany and Japan among others.

Ease of Use


The home page on their website was actually a little too simple for my liking. Apart from a short video clip that did give me more confidence in the product, it was a little tricky finding out more information. Trying to get the one-day free trial was also somewhat annoying, as they required you to send in an email request to be allowed access. This, naturally, drives the customer to bite the bullet and pay for the 7-day trial (you have to pay to trial the product for a week). Personally, I found this a disappointing element and one that almost deterred me from downloading the service entirely. If you are confident in your product, which BolehVPN should be, then offer a free trial of a decent length and without any registration restriction. What are you afraid of?

Once I had paid to sign up, the process of downloading was a little confusing at first. It wasn't really clear what I needed to do; despite the lengthy ‘step by step’ guide with pictures (see screenshots attached).

But, in reality, it looked more complicated than it actually was; and once I had taken a deep breath dived in, downloading was smooth and quick. It worked first time and did not begin ‘messing around’ with other functions on my computer. For those who may not be so technically minded or are wary of downloading software of this nature, the process will come as something of a relief…after the initial first hurdle of getting around your computers security protocols (necessary if using a Mac).

As I mentioned earlier, I signed up for the 7-day trial for which they charge a small fee. The cost of an annual subscription with BolehVPN means that they are positioning themselves at the upper end of the mid-range price bracket which gives the customer a nice sense that they are paying a fair price…not too much as to be being ripped off and not too little so as to think they are buying an inferior product. If you are likely to use a VPN on a regular basis then, there should be no complaints about the cost of using BolehVPN. And like most providers, they have enough payment options, including the classic credit card, that there will be one convenient for you.

Reliability & Support


BolehVPN seem to provide a good level of customer service. Looking through the website’s FAQs and forum, it shows that Boleh genuinely care about feedback and respond to it in a positive and timely manner. However, when I wanted to contact their customer support team over a basic query, it appeared that I was trying to do so at a time that their offices were closed. Being Malaysian based, should not prevent them with being able to provide 24-hour support, especially if they want to be competing with the very best providers on the global stage. I did get an automated response to say that my query will be dealt with as soon as possible and I was given a reference number for my enquiry, but it was a simple question that needed a simple answer right away. Within an hour I had received an email reply to my enquiry, but if I was looking to pay for the service, not having an immediate answer to my issue may well have put me off doing so and moving on to the next possible offering.

A simple speed test proved interesting. My uploading time with the VPN on was not significantly lower than when using my VPN free Wi-Fi. However, my download speed was significantly lower. My home Wi-Fi, which is not particularly great at the time of testing, gave me a download speed of 30.47Mbps on normal service. When I ran the test while using BolehVPN, this speed dropped to 15.99Mbps. Personally, it was fine for what I was doing at the time and, as I mentioned above, I actually found it more than sufficient for watching television online.

Compare BolehVPN With The Top Alternative VPNs

The Bottom Line

Easily competes with the best when it comes to security, but torrent users be wary

Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending BolehVPN to you. Like many of the top brands offering this type of software, it works smoothly and efficiently and does what you need it to do. Any small complaints about the aesthetics of the download instructions and complicated configurations tools are quickly forgotten once the service is up and running. Taking out a 7-day trial allows you to experience how comfortable it is to use this product. It looks good, feels good and works beautifully behind the scenes, allowing you to get on with what you need to do.

Does it come close to ExpressVPN packages though? We don't think so. BolehVPN can't keep up with premium sites when it comes to advanced security. We recommend using a premium vendor, so you can safely browse all your favorite sites and access streaming services like Netflix from multiple servers worldwide.

Personal Support

I am very satisfied with the VPN service and I am absolutely delighted with the very personal consideration that Bolehvpn have extended to me in the course of my renewal. In this era of digitally driven business models such a personal touch is (sadly) almost unheard of. It is a great credit to Bolehvpn that they have somehow retained it.

Great VPN all round for 7 years

I've been a Boleh VPN customer for 7 years. In that time I've only had to contact customer service a couple of times, but when you need them you get quick feedback from a real person - this is how customer support should be done, A+ The Boleh VPN service is great, and works flawlessly across my Android and Window's devices. Sometimes you need to ping the servers to see which is going to give you the best connection, but it is good that you have the ability to do that from the portal. My only criticism of the service is that there are so many connection types available, and sometimes it is difficult to work out the difference between them. There is help available on the forum regarding the different connections, but I tend to stick to the few types I know work for me which is good enough. Overall, the service is excellent, works well, and is good value for money. Recommended

Great service with offers

I have been using Bolehvpn for many years. I am fully satisfied with the service and have not encountered any major problems. Also got a free IPT account through Bolehvpn and I am very grateful for that.
