Too Bad it does not work

Forget these experts, I'm a real person that wanted a VPN and chose Ivacy for 1 month. It worked fine everything I wanted. I bought the 2 year plan. TROUBLE even the support could not log on. It was everyday almost. I cannot do this for 2 years. They would get it running and I would go to my Mac and that would not log on. They had asked me if I changed my password? Sometimes I had and sometimes I did not. I did not like when they asked for my password, Then I thought I can just change it. Next day I could not log on. They are based in Singapore and asked me to get up at 3am so the higher support team can use team viewer and find the problem. I said no I am not doing that. This is supposed to run in the back ground and leave it. I finally asked for my money back after 2 week of frustration. I have found what i think is a good VPN and opens when I go to the internet, how hard is that. MIKE

    Excellent performance - Super Support - Cheap

    I was really suspicious of Ivacy because of the ridiculously low price but I had to take them up on their 30 day Money Back Guarantee. I was up for renewal on NordVPN and since I was already happy with them, I just took a quick look around the net to see if there was anything out there that could come close to NordVPN. Nord has like 5000 servers and Ivacy only had like 700 so I thought it would have problems during busy times but it didn't. Once i had to get help running Ivacy on a Samsung Note 8 and the tech guys were awesome. But the deal breaker was when I got the price down to $1/month. So I still love NordVPN and they have a great 1 year deal for $2.75/ month but Ivacy is now my baby. I run it on my 2 PCs, 2 android smart phones and my work iPad with no problems. 5 connection at once and P2P sharing. For me it just doesn't get any better. ?

      Ivacy VPN

      When my previous VPN company suddenly increased their price by 70%. I decided to look for another company. Ivacy came up and I signed up for a 5 year deal that was quite inexpensive. Installing Ivacy on my Mac was strangely problematic, since I’ve never had any problems installing anything including VPNs on my mac. Ivacy’s online help and chat wanted me to GIVE THEM CONTROL OF MY COMPUTER RIGHT AWAY just to install IVACY. I steadfastly refused. This feels strange. And since I couldn’t install after awhile, I tried to cancel and get a refund within a day. No refund, since I paid with bitcoin, but they didn’t tell me that before hand. Later, installation worked. But… I would be dropped off vpn constantly WITHOUT WARNING. Other companies will pop a notice: vpn disconnected. But not IVACY. I will be surfing thinking there is security, but when I later checked , I was already disconnected from vpn and surfing without VPN. This happened ALL THE TIME. And when I tried to sign on, it always failed UNLESS I chose Singapore(toughest laws) as the server country.

        Ivacy recently changed their prices, and now they are incredibly affordable.

        You can purchase a one-month, one-year, or two-year plan. And best of all, you get a 30-day money back guarantee for the year plans, and a 7-day money-back guarantee for the one-month plan.

        For the 7-day guarantee, you'll get a refund if you claim it within 7 days and you haven’t breached any terms, you haven’t used more than 7GB, or run more than 30 sessions. This also works for users who accidentally paid extra because they didn’t turn off the auto-recurring option.

        Refunds generally take 48 hours but if payment was made with a credit card, it may take up to 40 days.

        But if you're still hesitant, you can try out Ivacy first.

        Ivacy offers a 3-day trial for just $2.50 and includes all the features of the regular service. But you have to do some extra searching to find it.

        The trial is not openly advertised on their site and you’ll need to talk to their customer service to set one up.

        Once you've decided on Ivacy, there are several payment options including PayPal, Credit Card, Bitpay, Coin payments, and others although the refund policy does not apply to BitCoin and Paymentwall.

        While Ivacy already gives great services at super-cheap prices, you can save even more money with special coupons. Visit our coupon page to see current discounts.

        Reliability & Support 4.0 / 5.0

        Ivacy has 24/7 customer support for a number of different mediums. The live-chat works within minutes. There is also email, Facebook messaging, and a contact form. The team answers questions in a professional manner with many solutions. That alone makes Ivacy stand out as a top VPN.

        The Bottom Line

        A feature-rich VPN that’s stepping up their game

        Ivacy has been around for some time now (since 2007), and we love to see the new improvements to this VPN.

        The Singapore-based VPN comes with everything you need: good security and encryption, a kill-switch, servers in 100 locations, access to Netflix and BBC iPlayer, and dedicated servers for torrenting and Kodi.

        In addition, Ivacy provides excellent customer service that’s available 24/7.

        The new (lower!) prices give users the options of subscribing for different periods of time, and with a 7 and 30-day money-back guarantee (depending on whether you buy the one-month or year plan), what have you got to lose?

        Detailed expert review of Ivacy VPN
        Catherine Ablett
        (Cybersecurity Researcher)

        Although it’s based in Singapore, which sometimes faces censorship issues of their own, Ivacy has proven itself as an exceptional VPN.

        The VPN has standard encryption and security with 256-bit military-grade encryption and several protocols including IPSEC, IKeV, L2TP, OpenVPN, TCP and UD.

        On top of that, Ivacy has a kill-switch, which will cut your internet connection if there is a leak. While the kill-switch tends to work, we have experienced a few instances in the past where it didn’t. Ivacy also does not store logs; they only keep a track of the login attempts made to their servers.

        They have servers in over 100 location with 275 servers and 12,000 IP addresses available. The server list isn’t expansive, like Nord’s or ExpressVPN’s, but it’s definitely more than we’ve seen with other VPNs.

        You can also connect up to five devices simultaneously, and since it works on so many platforms, we’re sure you will use all five.

        As for streaming, Ivacy can access Netflix, Hulu, and BBC iPlayer among other streaming sites, which is no small feat. The speed is definitely enough to stream without lag or buffering.

        In addition, Ivacy allows torrents on dedicated P2P servers. They also have dedicated servers for Kodi, and since there are no bandwidth restrictions, you can torrent and stream as much as you want.

        But one of the features that makes Ivacy really stand out is the 24/7 customer service. Not many VPNs can pull this off, but Ivacy is available through a variety of ways, and they answer questions quickly and efficiently.

        While in the past the prices haven’t been extraordinary, Ivacy recently revamped its prices, and now they are quite affordable.

        In addition, they have a 7-day money-back guarantee for their one-month plan and a 30-day money-back guarantee for their one and two-year plans.

        Ivacy is simple to install and use. It can be used by novices as well as experienced users.

        All in all, Ivacy has stepped up their game, and it’s a solid VPN to choose.
