Invizbox takes a different approach than most VPNs to online security and privacy. Instead of an intuitive app downloaded onto an individual device, Invizbox is a physical box that connects directly to your router. It does offer portable versions of the device, but were only able to test the box primarily designed to protect your home wifi network.

It can unblock Netflix, which is a huge plus. But, the fiddly installation is enough to put users off. You could skip all of that with one of these vendors that are reliable for bypassing Netflix’s geo-restrictions and offer easy-to-use apps.

Invizbox utilizes the Tor network to offer a secure, stable, and anonymous internet connection with unlimited data and excellent speeds. It comes complete with 256-bit AES encryption, an ad blocker, and a kill switch to protect your data in the event that your connection is interrupted.

Invizbox is contained within a compact, box-style device and works through a WAN connection to your home or office router. Depending on the age and style of your router, the box might also need access to a power source.

The box creates a separate wifi access point that you log into using the details printed on the back of the device. Configuration changes can be made through the online admin pages, where you can change the server you are connected to, create a bridge, and set up a proxy.

Invizbox makes it possible to set up multiple hotspots on one network, so you can connect different devices to different services. On the recently released Invizbox 2, you’ll also find an option to set up customized parental controls.

Invizbox is easy to set up – the Quick Start guide that is included in the package is simple to follow. While we did experience some issues accessing the admin pages, quick responses from the customer support team with helpful suggestions and ideas that worked meant we were soon able to deal with the issue and continue our testing. When you connect to your wifi through Invizbox, you can choose between a 2.5 G and 5G connections.

While customer service response times are excellent, there is no live chat option, so there is some response delay, and this delay is longer on weekends. We also found the help pages difficult to navigate and the FAQ pages limited. However, the installation and Quick Start guides do offer most of the information you need to get set up and achieve a successful and secure connection.

Creating a connection with a server can take time, so some patience is required, but once you have a connection, it is stable and secure. Invizbox operates under a strict no-logging policy to secure your personal details. Your Invizbox login and password details are set at the factory and printed on each individual box, limiting the risks associated with sending the details by email.

Invizbox can access a network of over 500 servers across 30 countries, and we were able to establish a stable and usable connection with each of the countries we tried. We experienced no lagging while streaming content and were able to bypass a wide range of geoblocks, gaining access to regional streaming content and websites, including Netflix and BBC iPlayer. I’d still recommend NordVPN though, it’s our #1 for unblocking Netflix, BBC iPlayer, and many more, thanks to its impeccable reliability and speeds.

Invizbox does allow and support torrenting, giving you access to a wide range of other content.

While Invizbox does offer an attractive package, it’s no match for our most highly rated VPNs. They offer compatibility with routers, plus easy-to-use apps that can be installed on your devices. And, they have the most advanced features on the market.

Ease of Use


Getting started with your Invizbox is quite easy. You simply connect the box to your router using the ethernet cable included with the box, and then connect the box to a power source using the USB cable that is also supplied.

To get online using the VPN, just find the Invizibox wi-fi access point on your device and enter the password that is printed on the underside of the box. You will be automatically connected to an available server.

To make configuration changes, including changing the server you are connected to, you need to open the admin pages. It was at this point that we hit some difficulties. We were unable to access the admin pages using either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, despite following the advice and tips provided by the customer service representative.

We finally achieved access by changing to Firefox. After that, we experienced no further problems and were able to change servers and explore other configuration settings easily.

When you purchase an Invizbox product, you pay up front for the box itself and then a monthly subscription price thereafter. The vendor also offers semiannual (6-month) and yearly subscription packages that significantly reduce your ongoing costs.

While the cost of the box makes Invizibox more expensive than many other VPNs, the number of servers, overall functionality, and superb customer service offered by the provider make it a good value for your money, comparable to similar VPN services.

Invizbox does offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. However, unless the box is faulty, you need to pay the postage to return the box.

Reliability & Support


We did experience a few issues with setup that are discussed in the next section. However, once we were connected and gained access to the admin pages, the servers were reliable.

We were able to connect to each of the server locations we chose and experienced no connection drops during testing. Speeds varied depending on the server we connected to; however, we noticed no lagging or prolonged load times at any point.

We had some initial reservations about the customer service since there is no live chat option and, in our experience, wait times for email responses can be intolerably long. However, in this case, our concerns were unfounded. The vendor states that an agent will respond within 24 hours to an inquiry received on a weekday, and in fact our experience was much better than that.

We received an immediate automatic response to say that our requests had been received, and had answers to our initial queries within two hours. When we experienced further difficulties, responses to those queries were similarly quick.

All responses we received were helpful and contained all the information and steps we needed to try to solve the problem. The support team continued the correspondence until the issue was resolved.

There is also a FAQ section on the website. While the FAQs themselves are limited, most installation, setup, and usage questions are covered by the installation and Quick Start guides you can download from the FAQ page.

The guides are easy to follow and include step-by-step instructions for accessing the admin pages, setting up different connections, and troubleshooting most basic issues.

The Bottom Line

Useful connection tool that utilizes the Tor network

Invizbox provides encrypted and anonymous access to the Tor network. It is easy to use, offers great speeds, and has a network of over 500 servers. It has many of the configurable settings that you would expect from a quality VPN and offers cost-effective monthly plans once you purchase the box. However, you need a router and active wi-fi connection to use the box – which limits the usefulness of the service for mobile devices.

Very slow download speed - 2

Email support very slow as is the routers speed. Connected to my wireless router and ExpressVPN I get a download speed of 50. When I connect through Invizbox 2/ExpressVPN OpenVPN my download speed is 0.94

Great product - has worked flawlessly for five months - 10

I have been having outstanding results with my Invizbox2 - I have 4 separate hot spots (countries) configured - all broadcasting 2.4 and 5Ghz (and one hotspot can be wired, too). It's important to note Invizbox currently supports only four VPN providers (Windscribe, Nord, ExpressVPN and IP Vanish) so if you don't have an account with one of them, then Invizbox wont work. The beauty of the Invizbox is the simultaneous hotspots, someone in the house can have the Roku logged in the USA hotspot whilst another family member is watching the BBC on the UK hotspot. After a firmware upgrade I had an issue and I sent a support request and received a reply within 12 hours from Invizbox (the problem turned out to be with me, not Invizbox) so in contrast to an earlier reviewer I have had an excellent response from the Support people. I've since purchased a second box for a family member's home. The second box was delayed and Invizbox of their own volition, refunded the shipping charge. I am very impressed by this product, highly recommended for the four hotspots that are always running and accessible.

No support. - 4

I am still trying to get my invizbox to work. It doesn`t read my VPN's account therefore I cannot connect to the internet. The worst part is there is no online or phone support. I have tried to youtube instructions, but the tutorials does not trouble shoot.
