Best VPNs by category
In terms of features, reliability and availability of servers, and no logs policy, IPVanish edges PureVPN as a better service provider. PureVPN still manages to stay competitive with its number of servers and overall VPN security, but the company has had privacy problems in the past.
IPVanish allows torrenting and P2P file-sharing on all its servers and offers unlimited bandwidth. PureVPN also has dedicated servers for torrenting, excluding the USA and UK.
IPVanish has a dedicated Windows app that features IPV6 leak protection, LAN blocking, and OpenVPN scrambling. PureVPN also has a Windows client with inbuilt malware and ad blocker.
IPVanish has an OpenVPN based Android app that automatically selects the fastest VPN connections based on users’ locations. PureVPN on the other hand has a dedicated Android app with strong encryption and is P2P enabled; however, you have to play around to find the fastest server.
Whether you’re streaming or torrenting, IPVanish offers a MacOS app that features lightning fast servers and stores no logs. PureVPN stores temporary logs on its MacOS app but still stays competitive with a detection technology that protects your devices from unknown network threats.
IPVanish has a secure iOS app that supports the IKEv2 and IPSec protocols and integrates iOS’ 3D touch into its functionality. Meanwhile PureVPN offers an iOS app that’s very easy to use and features an ad blocker.
Although it doesn’t work for Netflix, IPVanish has over 400 US based servers and is very fast when streaming other US services like Spotify. PureVPN only has 100 US servers and still manages to unblock Netflix but it could certainly do with some speed improvements.
