Leaks... Leaks everywhere

Whatever protocol you'd use, your real ISP DNS/IP can be found via ipx.ac / run and dnsleak and browserleaks to name a few... it is disappointing. Of course if you'd expect some anonymity. If you do not care... well, if you do not care, why would you bother to pay for VPN then?

    Still leaking your real IP in 2019

    Trust me fastestvpn is not worth your money no matter how deal you'll get. And here's the bottom line why: CONSTANT LEAKING, terrible CONSTANTLY CRASHING app, NO KILL SWITCH for torrenting only for your web browser. Shall I continue? Sure thing, EMPTY PROMISES and FLAT OUT LIES. Yes, I've been in contact with both their customer service (which is one guy, or at least any time talk to them the person is identified as Savvas) and their so called "back office", who never sign off any emails with any names. I was promised times over that they would add new servers (including my country). This was to take place in November 2018 then when it didn't happen, they said before the end of the year 2018. Never happened. Now a month later they are not bothering to reply to this question any more. They also promissed they were working on releasing the new version of the app by the end of the first week in January 2019, that would fix the leak issues. Oh well, no new app and also they are no longer communicating on this issue either. The whole point of buying a vpn service for a lot of people is to hide their torrenting traffic. With fastestvpn the app will freeze without a warning every now and then, but your torrent traffic will keep running as if nothing happened. However, what did happen is that the traffic is no longer redirected through the vpn server but through your actual own IP. I was able to identify this using an IP magnet tool, which sends back the IP address that the torrent client is actually sending out. Sometimes fastestvpn seems to work, but even then you can't connect to about half of their servers. Only around half will work at any given time I've tried. But yeah, sometimes several times a day the service will leak your actual IP, so there is no way I'll recommend fastestvpn to anyone.

      Worst buy I think I have ever made

      These people probably took a year off of my life. So many problems. So many contacts with them. Very few resolutions (actually I can't think of one that I didn't hash out myself... hard to remember since I probably had 10 separate chains). Some lies. I'll tell you the secret to make it work for you though. 1. Don't use their own apps. 4 devices all with different operating systems.. not a one worked reliably. One caused extreme issues with my system constantly. When they say they will fix it "soon" (clarified to be hours and days on two or three occasions), that is a lie. 2. So you will want to use a 3rd party client.. (I chose OpenVPN but there are options) 3. Then another 3rd party kill switch. (options but VPNKS for me) 4. Then do a search for "DNS leak test".. then you will need "how to correct DNS leaks block-outside-dns". 5. Look into "WebRTC leak prevent", or similar service. 6. But then you still have to trust them to have everything else work, and that they are who they say, and do what they say. With what I observed they are either incompetent, crooks, or spooks... so good luck. YMMV so here are the good things: -reliable once you do all the steps above that they don't tell you about. -Caymen islands jurisdiction (they say) -No logs (they say) -p2p is fine. -Netflix works on some servers supposedly. -Low price. -Fast response... if you use their chat... if it works on your browser. (Usefulness of the chat is another story). -They act professional when corresponding. Stupid yes. Liars yes. but professional... I sure wasn't by the time I left... (but I'm too old to care. I don't believe in being polite when people are pissing you off and say it's just raining... I believe anger is an appropriate response to say "no thank you"). They kept their cool though.

        Small Network, But Great for Streaming and Torrenting

        While it does have a small network, FastestVPN can still be a great choice because of its privacy and security, and because of its many features that allow for streaming, torrenting, bypassing censorship, and general anonymous online browsing.

        FastestVPN is a new player, and already offers many of the top rated services you would expect from an industry leader.

        With apps for all major platforms, including Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone, Router, and Kodi, FastestVPN offers high-speed connections, unlimited bandwidth, 99.9% uptime, and unlimited server switching. They even have special servers for secure P2P connections like torrents.

        FastestVPN also unblocks Hulu.

        They feature AES-256 bit encryption on OpenVPN, software that meets the highest security standards, and military grade encryption. They have an ad-blocker and inbuilt NAT firewall, which is an extra security layer that blocks all unrequested traffic entering your device, including malicious software. While they didn't originally include one, FastestVPN also now has a kill-switch.

        Their privacy policy is good, as they don’t keep any logs and don’t track any of your activities.

        The only limiting factor of this VPN is its network size. It has servers in 22 countries, which is a decent number if you’re using the VPN for simple purposes, but if you need several different IPs, it means this wouldn’t be the best choice for you.

        Their monthly plans might be a bit expensive, but they have a number of deals to help you save money. If you go for their limited-time five-year deal, it will only cost you $1 a month. Plus, you can connect up to five devices on a single license, which will also save you money. Payments can be made using credit cards, PayPal, and Bitcoin.

        They have 24/7 live chat, so if you run into any problems, they can be resolved on the spot. You can also email the support team at support@fastestvpn.com.
