French VPN, Le VPN, offers the security and reliability that people need when they are on the web. Users never have to worry about bandwidth or speed restrictions, and they can rest assured that the provider will not log any of their online activities. The service allows five devices to be connected at the same time, so a user could have their desktop or laptop hooked up at the same time as their smartphone.
Le VPN is a VPN provider based in Hong Kong that offers server locations in 114 countries, including France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Canada, Australia, Japan, South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, India, Argentina, and many more. Le VPN provides fast, secure and reliable connections. The service offers OpenVPN, IPSec, IKEv2, PPTP and L2TP protocols, with 256-bit encryption.
Le VPN does not set speed and bandwidth limits and keeps no logs of their users' online activity. Le VPN allows for five devices per user to be simultaneously connected. The service allows torrent and peer-to-peer file sharing with dedicated servers in five countries. It also offers Smart DNS, which allows users to unblock geo-restricted websites and streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, HBO Go, Pandora, Spotify, amongst others. Le VPN also offers a feature called HybridVPN, which combines VPN connection with a Smart DNS service for a streamlined, fast and reliable access to geo-restricted websites in the United States, the United Kingdom and France.
Le VPN is compatible with all recent versions of Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS and Android, with dedicated software for Windows and Mac, and apps for Android and iOS. This means that it works on most desktop and laptop computers, as well as tablets and smartphones. The software is very easy to download, install, configure and use. The service's website provides extensive and detailed guides on how to do so. Customer support is very quick to reply and efficient, and can be contacted via a ticketing system.
Le VPN offers three plans with three different subscription periods: one month, 6 months and 1 year. The 6 months and 1 year plans offers substantial savings. All plans include all the features provided by LE VPN, without any limits. Le VPN also offers a 7-day money back guarantee.
