HideIPVPN Review & Test 2019 - Keep This in Mind Before Buying

HideIPVPN offers a wide range of VPN protocols as well as unlimited speed and strong connections. Due to the security as well as the reliability, many are using this for peer-to-peer file sharing as well as for torrents. It is an easy-to-use service and users are allowed to have as many devices as they need connected at once. The service does not watch any online activity of their users either, which is always important when looking for a VPN service.

However, as you'll see reading this review, HideIPVPN can't compete with leading providers likeNordVPN.With over 5,600 secure, high-speed servers and outstanding privacy, NordVPN offers the most complete VPN package available.

HideIPVPN uses 5 VPN protocols: SSTP, OpenVPN, SoftEther, PPTP and L2TP/IPSec, with 128-bit AES and 256-bit AES encryptions. The service also offers DNS leak protection. The service allows unlimited traffic at unlimited speed. It provides speedy and reliable connections, with a 99.9% uptime guarantee. This makes it especially suitable for torrent and peer-to-peer file sharing, which is allowed on their German and Polish servers. HideIPVPN can be used in up to 3 devices on the same account at the same time. HideIPVPN also includes a web proxy service.

HideIPVPN also offers a Smart DNS service, which allows users to unblock popular geolocated websites such as Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer and more. This service makes streaming easy, and can be used on an unlimited number of devices at the same time.

HideIPVPN offers several options to contact them. They offer live chat (very quick to respond at any time of day, generally under 30 seconds), a ticketing system (responds in less than an hour) and remote assistance. The staff are all very knowledgeable and friendly. There is also a comprehensive FAQ section, as well as very detailed set-up guides.

The Bottom Line

A good quality VPN with DNS option. However, somewhat limited in number of countries to connect through

HideIPVPN has servers in the United States, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada and Poland, perfect for watching most of your favourite streaming services abroad, unless you’re looking for specific services, in France for example. With a choice of encryption options you can also customise the experience based on your need for privacy and speed, as well as the option of connecting through a simple unencrypted proxy service to access local websites. You’re also able to connect 3 devices simultaneously, using different protocols, allowing you to multitask with your devices as you would normally, but with all the added security that a VPN service offers.

App crashed then stuck

App crashed then stuck "connecting" revealing IP. Refund refused within 30days Support is not helpful. (the one man band 'aversion handling' type of support) "have you tried a different protocol" "add your pc to team viewer" kind of stuff Refund refused with 30 days. The app not working is not part of the refund policy. Security not a priority here the kill switch is not system wide, you have to add apps. Support could not help with adding windows store apps to the kill switch. Daily email asking for a review for their site. If you do review your name is posted publicly on the HipeIPVPN site. Not recommended

    Good, but not consistently

    I have been a customer since... maybe their beginning. They have been streamlining their apps and implementing new features throughout the years but that isn't without headaches. After their latest update I have had problems with disconnections on my phone (Galaxy S9+) and certain websites just won't load (phone and PC), regardless of protocol. As for their support, fast response time and they will give you options to try and solve any issues. I am currently subscribed to US VPN and Smart DNS.

      Good service.

      I did try so many other VPNs and HideIPVPN it's only one to allow me to use all websites online. If I am login to Polish location they really see me as I am in Poland and the same with other locations. All websites allow me to use their services because they really think I am in Poland for example. It's not the cheapest VPN but it's ok when subscribed annually. I hope this make sense.
