Identity Cloaker Review (2019) - Keep This in Mind Before Buying

Identity Cloaker is an internet privacy and identity protection service located in the Czech Republic. For the purpose of keeping their users' private and anonymous, Identity Cloaker uses a network of private anonymous proxy servers.

It can unblock Netflix, but its low server count means you can expect slower speeds and less reliability than with other, leading vendors, since they become more congested. I'd suggest checking out our top picks for streaming Netflix instead.

It uses SSH tunneling and L2TP and OpenVPN protocols, with 256-bit AES encryption. Currently, the Identity Cloaker network includes 31 servers in 16 countries, including Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, to a total of 534 IP addresses. However, a premium VPN such as NordVPN (with thousands of IP addresses available) will still keep you secure and let you enjoy all the benefits of an unrestricted internet too.

The application is very easy to configure and use. As it is a small client application, there is no need for users to install anything on their devices. The application can also be used from a USB stick or memory card, without the need to install anything on the user's computer. With Identity Cloaker, users can have access not only mask their online identity, but can also have access to geo-restricted websites and services, such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Pandora, and more. Users only need to select the correct locations that give them access to those websites and services.

Connections used through Identity Cloaker are average. There is no limit to the number of devices that can be used at the same time.

The Identity Cloaker client app can be used on any version of Microsoft Windows. There is also a pre-release version available for Macs. On smartphones and tablets that support iOS and Android, users can connect through VPN. The Identity Cloaker website has an extensive FAQ section, and customer support can be contacted via email.

Identity Cloaker offers several subscription plans: 30 days, 3 months, 6 months and one year. The service also offers a 10-day trial access. There is also a 14-day money back guarantee.

Ease of Use 4.3 / 5.0

1. Sign up here to create your account
2. Download the program file (no installation is required) and run it
3. You can choose the server you wish to connect to, or if you to have one automatically selected, simply click “Connect”
4. Microsoft Internet Explorer will now automatically use this to secure all of your browsing
5. Mozilla Firefox can be used with the program if you click “Install Firefox Extension” in the app – when Firefox is restarted it will automatically connect to the secure connection
6. Other browsers can also be used, but each connection must be set up manually each time you use the browser – it won”t connect automatically

Identity Cloaker offers a free 10 day trial for its single service. Subscriptions are available for either 1, 3, 6 or 12 months with a 14 day money back guarantee, all options provide the same service.

Reliability & Support 4.3 / 5.0

We found Identity Cloaker to be one of the easiest to use and understand systems, and they have server uptimes of almost 100%, but if you do get stuck, support can be contacted through an email support ticket, by filling out the form on the support section of their website. They typically reply within a couple of hours.

The Bottom Line

Simple, reliable, flexible and fully protected, and all for a reasonable price

Identity Cloaker uses SSH tunnelling, L2TP and OpenVPN protocols, with the advanced 256-bit AES encryption, making them one of the more secure options for VPN provider.

The setup is easy and hassle free, providing their own software, which can easily be made portable by installing on a USB disc, or similar removable media.

They also only provide servers in 16 countries, though this includes all the locations that you’re most likely going to want to be using, but the relatively low numbers of provided IP addresses mean that this service is more easily blocked by international media services, and may be an indicator of more downtime in the future.

Our opinion? Choose a top vendor like NordVPN – you’ll get better global coverage and all the security features you need too.

While it’s able to bypass Netflix’s geoblocks, that’s only for now. A small server network is more vulnerable to becoming blacklisted, which means they easily become detected by Netflix. Why not check out our top picks for Netflix instead? These vendors are guaranteed to offer reliable and fast streaming with Netflix, and have thousands of servers worldwide.

If you value a superb customer service and a reliable product, then I would not look any further. I have used IC for 10 years and although they might be the cheapest, you get what you pay for. On the odd occasion a problem has occurred I can honestly say it is resolved VERY promptly. I hope to be using them for another 10 years.

    Fantastic service !

    I tried a couple of free companies - waste of time. The few issues I have had (been with them 5 years) have been resolved within an hour of me first emailing. Very professional. Can’t recommend them enough.

      Trusted VPN Product

      I've been using IDC for many years now. They value their long term customers by offering discounts for renewal, are providing excellent service in a form of IDC or by using OpenVPN tunnels with vast amount of servers across the globe. They are based in Czech Republic and being Czech myself I know how precise the coding is done, the mentality and the drive to get themselves known. I never looked back, changed or contemplated other service. It's simple to use, the Support Service is out of this world (response time is in minutes and thorough) and accommodating with a refund should you change your mind. If you want to stay secure in today's world, give them a go.
