MonkeyVPN, founded in 2009 in Canada, is an easy-to-use VPN software. MonkeyVPN has server locations in three countries namely, US, Germany, and the UK. This happens to be a little bit discouraging because most VPN clients always love to be able to select from several locations. Even though the three countries covered are among the popularly used VPN locations, the developers will do well to increase their locations so as to cover other countries and most especially the countries where social media sites are restricted.
MonkeyVPN uses only PPTP protocols, this I believe, reduces their popularity in the market where there a lot of VPN service providers uses popular protocols like L2TP, SSTP, IPSec, SSL or OpenVPN. The same thing applies to the types of IP available; there is no dedicated, dynamic or static IP option. You can only use a shared IP. This kind of reduces your level of security or privacy and makes you very vulnerable to hackers whenever you are connected to a network.
There are three plans that you can subscribe to on MonkeyVPN. Subscribing to the first plan requires you to pay $4.99 for period of one month. The second plan goes for $39.48, and that covers you for a year. The third plan costs $23.48, and that covers you for six months. All these plans are available on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. They accept several payment methods like American Express, VISA, Master Card and they accept Credit card too.
It is important to note that there is no money back guarantee on MonkeyVPN and they only offer a free 24hrs trial for you to decide whether the service is the right one for you.
MonkeyVPN does not have a live chat customer care option on their website, so if you have any question or any issue, you will have to send them an Email.
Finally, for MonkeyVPN to be competing with the top VPN service providers, there a lot of things they need to improve on but I believe MonkeyVPN VPN service gives a reasonable speed good enough to entice VPN lovers all around the world.
