Located in the United Arab Emirates, ZPN is part of the group Vostok Soft FZC which allows you to unlock access to all your favourite content. If you’re looking for a VPN that unblocks Netflix, you’re in luck. ZPN can unblock streaming services like Netflix, Rara, Pandora, Zattoo, Voddler, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Amazon Instant Videos, iTV Player, Xfinity, Singtel TV, Russia TV, HBO Now, Lovefilm, Hulu, SkyGo, and more.
Unfortunately they only have a semi no-logs policy, whereas premium services like NordVPN offer true no-logs policies. ZPN maintains a mostly no-logs policy: for free users, bandwidth logs are tracked to set service limitations.
They provide access to 272 VPN servers across more than 20 locations around the world with their Premium subscription and protect your anonymity with the aid of AES-256 encryption. As well as the secure AES-256 cipher they offer L2TP/IPSec connections, but trump those with the OpenVPN protocol for an extra layer of security and complexity.
There are three ways to use ZPN; first is the Free option, be aware though, your bandwidth is restricted, you’re capped at 10GB of data monthly, you’re only allowed one connection, five servers to choose from, and P2P file sharing is prohibited. Even though ZPN does unblock Netflix, the lack of a solid no-logs policy for free users means you won’t get the security you need to stay anonymous while streaming. However, they do offer “No sign-up fees. No credit card required. No long-term commitments,” if you switch to premium and a full no-logs policy goes into effect.
You can use ZPN on a selected mobile device (the Mobile plan), your data increases to 50GB, P2P is allowed on Premium servers, and there are more than 20 server locations to choose from. The Premium package lets you enjoy unlimited data, five simultaneous connections, as well as the same P2P and server location benefits as the Mobile plan. Both Premium and Mobile plans are allowed unlimited bandwidth. Each plan can be paid for monthly, quarterly or yearly, by Bitcoin as well as PayPal or credit card, offering the opportunity for a high level of anonymity if desired. Impressively given the level of free service they offer, there’s still a 7-day money back guarantee after users decide to buy a subscription.
Customer support is merely email and ticket support queries. There’s no mention of the time frame they’ll try and get back to you in either. And the FAQ section is split into a fairly limited selection of General Questions, Payment Questions, and Technical Questions. It’d be nice to see more options for live support in the future. On a plus side, the website is slick, easy to navigate, and has a professional quality to it.
If you want to stream Netflix securely, I recommend looking in to free trials from premium providers before making a decision.
