Private Tunnel Review 2019 -Keep This in Mind Before Buying

Private Tunnel helps secure and protect your personal data and information while you surf the web anonymously. Although it doesn't have the customer service of ExpressVPN or the various protocols of NordVPN, it is still an acceptable VPN provider.

With Private Tunnel, you can connect no matter where you are, and you can surf the web with peace of mind. The system will work on all your devices whether running Mac OSX, iOS, Android, or Windows operating systems. All the data that flows through the system has 128-bit AES-GCM encryption.

The client is easy to download and install, and getting started with the system is very simple, even for those with limited computer knowledge. Of course, those who have questions can consult with the company’s knowledge database on their site. They also have a contact page so you can email for help and support if you have any issues with the service. The Pleasanton, CA company doesn’t seem to have an online chat system though.

One of the nice things about Private Tunnel is the fact that they have several plans available, and there should be something there for every budget. They also make it easy to understand exactly what you are getting with each of the plans, as the basic features are the same throughout. The difference is the amount of data that you receive.

They have a 20GB plan. You buy 20GB worth of the service for $9.99, and then you can use that whenever you see fit. It doesn’t expire, and you can connect an unlimited number of devices. The 100 GB plan works the same way, except you have more data and it costs $19.99. For those who know they will be using a substantial amount of data, the best option is the Unlimited plan. This allows you to have unlimited data and you can connect up to 10 devices. The cost is just $29.99 per year, making it one of the most cost-effective VPN options.

However, they also offer a free version. This only comes with 2GB of data, but you can earn more by referring friends. The free version is a good way to get a better idea of how the system works and what it can do for you.

Once you see and experience those great features, chances are good you will want to sign up for more of the service. It’s easy to use, keeps you safe and secure online, and it allows you to be anonymous while online. The speeds are good, and it’s certainly a VPN you should try.

Bandwidth package lost, customer service won't help.

I had a nice fixed bandwidth package that would have lasted me for years. Because I accidentally signed up for a trial account, my bandwidth package was removed from my account (they admitted that this is a bug in their website) They refuse to reinstate my bandwidth package, saying that it is impossible (with all their expertise, I find that hard to believe). The fact is that they don't want to, they would rather I sign up for a high monthly fee.

    The Comcast of VPN's

    The data service itself is... OK. Sometimes was really slow, and some sites wouldn't accept traffic from their POP's. Was able to connect about 95% of the time. I'd say choppy/slow about 30% or so, though I'm a latenight user myself. The real downfall, though, is the customer service. I bought a "no expiration" data plan when they first got started and haven't finished using all my data. They changed their business model but won't honour prior agreements. Many appeals to sales and support with requests for them to honour the agreement THAT I PAID FOR were ignored and what I got instead was "cancelled." They cancelled my "no expiration" account while I still had data on it, and still no consideration for the fact that I bought something from them and they are refusing to deliver it. If you're a #classaction #attorney looking for a class-action #target, may I suggest PrivateTunnel? I'd make a stink about it on principle, but honestly, my stress is worth more way more than their data. I wasn't going to renew with them anyway, but I'd still like to use what I paid for.

      Do they keep logs?

      They seem unclear on that one no peer to peer for my needs makes it less worrisome.The low amount of servers is a minus,and for a time it had a Turkish name as where the location was last year. Speed is decent,do they keep logs?If you want net freedom no VPN should. Useless with BBC too.
