SaferVPN is a NetProtect brand that joined forces with other NetProtect brands, additional VPN providers, and i2Coalition to create the VPN Trust Initiative.
This effort combines SaferVPN’s experience in the VPN industry with the status and resources of i2Coalition as a commercial association and advocate for Internet infrastructure.
Through the VPN Trust Initiative, they work together to promote online privacy, expand the public’s VPN knowledge, and educate policymakers on privacy technology.
Privacy and Security
SaferVPN offers total anonymity on the network, using the best security features. It uses encryption between the device and the destination on the web using the Advanced Encryption Standard, AES 256. It uses three different VPN protocols:
- IKEv2 / IPsec – Employs powerful cryptographic keys and algorithms that are unbreakable by supercomputers.
- OpenVPN – Extremely versatile security protocol offers you both TCP and UDP ports – for secure browsing, gaming, and direct transmission.
- L2TP / IPSec – Protocol available on all modern platforms and is easy to install. L2TP is a good option if OpenVPN or IKEv2 are not available
- PPTP – Microsoft developed Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol to create a VPN over phone calls. It offers a fast connection due to very basic encryption. It is also straightforward to set up.
SaferVPN automatically selects the VPN protocol best suited for your network, using all kinds of available protocols.
In addition to all this, SaferVPN uses Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS). This function improves encryption security, which changes encryption keys every 60 minutes, adding an extra layer of preventive protection to have even more safety.
Speed and Performance
SaferVPN does not offer the most agile connections on the VPN market, but it can be very interesting for casual users who do not always need an agile service.
When tested on connections with nearby servers in the same city as the user, SaferVPN showed a loss of speed around 18%, not an insufficient margin for a VPN connection.
SaferVPN protects up to 5 devices with a single account and is available for several operating systems, such as computers and notebooks with Mac and Windows operating systems, phones with iOS, Android, and Windows Phone systems, and has extensions for Firefox and Chrome.
In addition to the devices, it is also possible to use SaferVPN in routers, making it possible to enjoy all the benefits of SaferVPN in any device connected to wireless networks at home or in the company.
Servers and Locations
Streaming and Torrents
When using SaferVPN, the user will be able to access the entire content library of streaming servers such as:
- Amazon Prime Video
- BBC iPlayer
- HBO GO
It is also possible to unlock videos that have not been launched in your country. SaferVPN also offers servers specially equipped for streaming.
Through SaferVPN, it is also possible to use P2P sharing (Torrent), a transfer protocol that causes the transferred files to be divided into parts, and each person who has such a file helps to upload it to other users.
The main problem is that all devices that upload or download the same file on a P2P network can see each other’s IP address, making what is suitable for the efficiency of information sharing is bad for your privacy.
However, when activating a VPN, the user connects to a remote VPN server, replacing your real IP address with the server’s address.
This IP exchange hides your location and helps maintain your privacy while sharing files or while merely browsing the Web.
Besides, VPN P2P files and all other data sent and received are transferred through a heavily encrypted tunnel. It means that no one can get their hands on the user’s personal information.
SaferVPN allows P2P with locations in the Netherlands, Canada, and Spain. Finally, it is worth noting that P2P trafficking is not allowed in the following countries:
- Costa Rica
- South Korea
- United Arab Emirates
Through SaferVPN, it is also possible to unblock Skype, Viber, Whatsapp, and Telegram, while protecting your VoIP conversations with 256-bit encryption.
VoIP technology not only makes communication easy and convenient, but it is also super cost-efficient.
Typically, when people are contacted abroad. With VoIP services, you can reduce call charges and even make free long-distance calls.
Although most of the VoIP services are blocked in several countries due to censorship or other online restrictions, with SaferVPN, it is possible to use VoIP services even in the countries where they are blocked.
