Saturn VPN, a US based service, aims to deliver a VPN for “people who love anonymity”. Though, what do they offer specifically that will guarantee you the utmost privacy and security? Do they really have your back covered when surfing the tumultuous online world?
To start with, Saturn VPN uses 256-bit encryption when tunneling traffic towards their servers. This is widely used form of encryption that provides the most robust form of security to protect the transmission of private data. To anonymize your location, you’ll get a new shared IP address from one of SaturnVPNs servers located in 11 regions (including USA, UK, France, Netherlands, Germany). So if you reside in Europe, you’ll now be able to access services such as Netflix, Hulu or Pandora.
Standard VPN protocols are offered: PPTP, L2TP, CiscoVPN and OpenVPN, allowing you to protect not just your web browsing but other apps, emailing, or VoIP sessions. So if you’re traveling to China sometime or any other geographical region that censors web content, you’ll have the potential punch through the most fierce firewalls and open the door to content on social media sites, international news sites, or services like Skype and What’sApp.
SaturnVPN offers unlimited speeds and unlimited bandwidth whilst also allowing P2P and Torrent activity from a small number of servers. You’ll only be allowed 2 devices hooked up at any give time and live chat support is on hand for if any technical matters arise.
The downside of SaturnVPN is their lack of proprietary software for desktops or a native app for mobile devices, so you will have to manually configure your device settings to establish a connection to one of their servers. Supported devices like Mac OSX, Windows, iOS, Android and Linux all have installation guidelines provided on their website. Some VPNs provide software that include enhanced security features, such as a kill-switch which will halt all internet traffic from flowing back to your ISP in the event that the VPN connection drops. Even the option to tunnel IPv6 traffic through the VPN is a great feature that unfortunately SaturnVPN can’t provide.
However, what they do offer is strong encryption and all the standard protocols. You’ll keep your location and traffic hidden from your ISP so they won’t be able to monitor and store browsing data. Even when you surf through WiFi hotspots, this VPN will make it impossible for hackers, snoopers to intercept and steal your data.
Providing you follow their guidelines, you could be up surfing anonymously within minutes. To get started, they offer a free test account using PPTP or L2TP protocols (which will disconnect every 5 minutes). If you’re happy, and want to go all in, they offer 4 payment plans which includes all of the features on offer. A pretty tight 3-day money back guarantee is included, which means you can walk away without losing anything.
