Safe, Secure and Simple

Protects your traffic, secures your ID, allows seamless access to (say) UK sites from European or remote locations I have been using IDC almost since Tomas France brought it to the Internet. I find it a reassuring backdrop to my internet use. With the increase in destructive entities on the internet I feel a little bit better knowing that with my encryption set at maximum it is more difficult for my traffic to be intercepted. At times maximum encryption impacts on performance - but for me not significantly. All in all an excellent product with excellent performance and very good support. As we all become subject to "prying eyes and malevolent influences" IDC is a great comfort and a great programme.

So easy and reliable

We have used ID Cloaker several times, so I am able to watch, for example, BBC News Live. Easy to set up, no delays and always first class service, if you need support.

Excellent performance after many years

As a US-based customer for 6 or 7 years, this service has worked well for me. Some of the servers hang more often or seem slower than others (the US servers, which are the closest geographically, can be poky--congestion?). Until last year when Netflix made changes, I was even able to stream US content on my account while outside the US (but Netflix has tightened up since then, and on my last trip overseas late last fall, this was no longer possible). I have never needed tech support or assistance, but the website seems pretty bare-bones regarding any kind of knowledge base or have questions.

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.
