LiquidVPN Review 2020 - Keep This in Mind Before Buying

LiquidVPN is a small, new but very innovative VPN provider. They are constantly innovating and improving their service. If you want to access Netflix from anywhere at anytime, you’ll need a premium vendor like NordVPN. LiquidVPN only unblocks Netflix in certain countries.

It offers servers located in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Romania, and Singapore. LiquidVPN uses OpenConnect/AnyConnect, OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSEC, SSTP and PPTP VPN protocols, with very high levels of encryption, including ES-256-CBC, AES-128-CBC, AES-256-GCM, and Camellia-256-CBC. It offers unlimited server and port switching, with no limits on bandwidth. It can be freely used for torrent and peer-to-peer file sharing. It provides secure, reliable and speedy connections.

LiquidVPN’s most innovative feature is the modulating IP connections. With this, public IP addresses that are constantly changed, and the more people use the service, the more the IP addresses will be changed. It consists of a shared IP that modulates between different IP addresses. This affords extra anonymity to users. LiquidVPN keeps no logs of user online activity, and they regularly publish transparency reports.

Rotating IP addresses makes it easier to bypass censorship and geo-blocking, you may notice slow speeds during periods of high-traffic. While you can unblock Netflix and other restricted streaming services using some of their servers, speeds and access to the service are inconsistent. You’d be better off with a premium provider like NordVPN if you want a service that offers buffer-free streaming.

LiquidVPN works on Windows and Mac OS X, with its own LiquidVPN Software. LiquidVPN has an Android app and provides detailed instructions on how to use the device’s built-in VPN dialer to use LiquidVPN. This means it can be used also on smartphones and tablets, as well as in consoles such as Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

LiquidVPN offers dedicated 24/7 customer support, which can be contacted via email or a ticket system. It also provides users with a extensive set of instructions, tutorials, FAQs and troubleshooting files. Remote desktop support is also available.

LiquidVPN offers three price plans: SideKick, Road Warrior and Ultimate. These offer the same features and performance, but the maximum number of devices that can be online at any time varies from two to four to eight respectively. Plans can be subscribed monthly or annually. LiquidVPN offers a money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

Benefit from tough security and stable connections if you are in the right location

LiquidVPN currently only has servers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Romania, and Singapore. They provide a range of encryption options, including the high-security Camellia-256-CBC protocols, allowing you to make your ideal balance between safety and speed. There are no limits on torrenting either, and keep no logs.

This service is reasonably priced, and makes a good choice when looking for a simple, small-scale VPN service. However, it doesn’t have the server power or obfuscation features for consistently accessing Netflix and other geo-blocked sites. If you want a powerful VPN for streaming movies, we suggest a premium providers.

Good to start with but the openvpn connections no longer work from any of my PCs or connections. L2TP does, but that's not what i need. Support has responded only once in 4 days to say "sorry for the delay." Moving on from this supplier.

Faster than the competition - 10

liquid vpn is faster than all of the other services I have ever tried. Its a shame they do not add locations as fast as some of the more popular ones but I guess they must spend less on advertising.

A Dream for Torrent Lovers like Myself - 10

At first, I couldn't get my torrents running very well. I got in touch with tech support and changed the topology. Now I am seeing on average 245mbps download and upload on their Chicago servers on my 500mbps x 500mbps connection.That does not sound great but its the fastest service yet. I always have at least 2 VPN subscriptions. My main subscription and the one I am testing in hopes to find one that will give me closer to 500mbps. They dethroned AirVPN as my main service. I will continue to try new services and if one comes along that gives me better speeds I will switch but until that day comes I recommend Liquid to anyone that asks.
