While we wish it offered as many devices as NordVPN, Cloak succeeds in protecting Apple devices connected to public unprotected networks. It also succeeds in unblocking Netflix, but it’s not reliable on every server. If you want greater reliability, speed, and quality, i’d recommend NordVPN.
Once installed on the users’ devices, the Cloak app automatically creates a VPN connection when the device uses an untrusted Wi-Fi network. The users can define what Wi-Fi networks are trusted and which ones are not. Cloak creates a trusted connection between the users’ devices and Cloak’s cloud servers, encrypting the data transmitted. Cloak thereby creates a Virtual Private Network, protecting its users’ privacy and security. Cloak IPSec and OpenVPN security protocols, with custom-generated 2048-bit DH group and 1536-bit DH group encryption.
Through Cloak Transporter, Cloak routes their users’ data through centers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. This may help mask your location and give you access to some geo-restricted websites, but Cloak does not guarantee that. Cloak is very easy to install, configure and use. It is very reliable and the connections it provides are fast.
As it is specifically targeted for Apple device users, Cloak only supports Mac OS X and iOS. This means it can be used on all Mac desktops and laptops, as well as iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch. The Cloak website provides very extensive and detailed FAQ, explaining every detail of the service. Customer service can be contacted via email. Since, Cloak is specifically designed for Apple it works great with Mac and iOS but if you have mixed-media, you may want to opt for a cross compatible option like NordVPN.
Cloak offers two different kinds of plans: subscriptions and passes. Subscriptions re-bill users regularly, while passes are for one-time uses. Users can opt for a mini subscription plan, which allows 5GB of data per month, or an unlimited plan, which allows for unlimited use. Yearly plans have the same features as unlimited plans, but offer savings. Cloak offers weekly, monthly and yearly passes, with unlimited data allowances. Cloak also offers a 30-day trial period.
