‘No Logging’ Policy
A ‘No Logging’ policy means that the service will neither store nor track your traffic data while you’re using the VPN connection. This includes your IP address, destination urls, session timestamps, metadata…etc.
A lot of VPNs promise to stick to a ‘No Logging’ policy but fail to do so. Fortunately,
“All our VPN servers around the world ARE NOT storing any log files to keep your privacy safe. All the usage data is anonymous and not connected to your real, public IP address.”
However, this doesn’t mean that
Industry Standard Encryption and Tunneling Protocols
VPN services use encryption standards to hide your traffic data. If the standard used is not very secure and is easily decrypted, a hacker with decent skills could view your information. Fortunately for us,
A tunneling protocol is a way for VPNs to transmit your data undetected through public networks. The two default tunneling protocol options are OpenVPN and Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP). The former is an open-source software with serious security capabilities. It’s the default option on most top-tier VPNs which speaks volumes about OpenVPN’s effectiveness. In contrast, L2TP is known to be much less secure and we recommend that you avoid using it at all times.
If a VPN isn’t well-secured then you can expect your IP address to be leaked. DNS leaks and WebRTC leaks are the most common types you may encounter. The former occurs when there is a bug in the DNS server, resulting in the VPN connection to be bypassed. As a result, the data you transmit will no longer be encrypted.
A WebRTC leak is when your web browser leaks your IP address while you’re using a VPN service. Fortunately, with
Out of the hundreds of VPNs available today only a fraction is able to bypass Netflix’s regional restrictions. This is because Netflix makes an active effort to block VPNs and ban those who use them. Fortunately, services like
Some VPNs block their users from torrenting.
A Kill Switch is a feature that blocks your device from accessing the internet when the VPN connection is interrupted. This way, your IP address, and other traffic data won’t be leaked unknowingly.
We only had a couple of complaints about
Support for Devices is Limited
To be fair,
Sub-Par Customer Support
Customer Support is something that a lot of VPN companies don’t place much emphasis on. Unfortunately,
Limited Server Network
There are a lot of benefits to having
The only drawbacks are its limited customer support, server network, and device support.
Trust.Zone is a service based in Seychelles - a safe haven for VPNs due to lax data retention laws. It’s also one of the cheapest paid VPNs we’ve encountered so far which still offers premium features. With their official slogan being 'The One You Can Count On' Trust.Zone seems to be promising exceptional security and privacy. But can they truly deliver or is this just an empty, exaggerated claim? That's exactly what we're going to discuss in this review.
