Trust.Zone is a VPN that does a lot of things right.
1. Jurisdiction in Seychelles
Trust.Zone, they have zero obligation to comply.
2. ‘No Logging’ Policy
A ‘No Logging’ policy means that the service will neither store nor track your traffic data using the VPN connection. This includes your IP address, destination URLs, session timestamps, metadata…etc.
Many VPNs promise to stick to a ‘No Logging’ policy but fail to do so. Fortunately, Trust.Zone is an exception because its government has no pressure to collect or monitor user data. Here’s Trust. Zone’s statement on this matter:
“All our VPN servers worldwide 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
3. Industry Standard Encryption and Tunneling Protocols
VPN services use encryption standards to hide your traffic data. However, if the measure 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 default tunneling protocol options are OpenVPN and Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP). The former is open-source software with serious security capabilitiesMoreover. Moreover, 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.
4. Airtight Connection
If a VPN isn’t well-secured, 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 being 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 the service. Fortunately, with Trust.
5. Decent Speeds
6. Unblocks Netflix
Out of the hundreds of VPNs available today, only a fraction can 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 Trust.Zone has servers that are specifically optimized for unblocking Netflix. These servers will change their virtual IP address every time Netflix tries to ban the existing one. This way,
7. Unrestricted Torrenting
Some VPNs block their users from torrenting.
8. Kill Switch
A Kill Switch is a feature that blocks your device from accessing the internet when the VPN connection is interrupted. Your IP address and other traffic data won’t be leaked unknowingly.
Trust.Zone VPN offers some of the lowest prices for a paid VPN. Even on a month-to-month basis, the subscription fee is a mere $8.88. If you sign on to the Two Year Plan, this drops down to just $2.88.
Trust.Zone VPN Review – The Cons
We only had a couple of complaints about
1. Support for Devices is Limited
To be fair,
2. Sub-Par Customer Support
Customer Support is something that many VPN companies don’t place much emphasis on. Unfortunately,
3. Limited Server Network
Surfshark, whose server numbers exceed 3000! Therefore, depending on where you live, you may experience a lot of latency with your connection.
Trust.Zone VPN – Conclusion
There are a lot of benefits to having
Its limited customer support, server network, and device support are the only drawbacks. However, we hope that our
