IPVanish review (2018 version)

One of the most famous VPN providers on the market is IPVanish. We have tested IPVanish and here we will share our short IPVanish review. Keep on reading to see IPVanish screenshots and read more about this VPN provider.

IPVanish reviewThe first impression is very important when you look for a trustworthy and easy to use VPN tool. IPVanish scores high from the first moment on, because their webpage is very easy to use and easy to understand. They do not have tons of prices and packages, but once you make a subscription for a certain amount of time you will have the right to connect to all their servers in all their nations in that period of time.

Once you have made a subscription you can easily download the IPVanish client which is easy to use and even your grandmother could understand how to use the IPVanish client. One of the things we really liked about the IPVanish client was the fact that it writes the ping time of the different servers next to the server city and nation, making it much easier to connect to the server with the best ping in a given nation, instead of trying each.

Use IPVanish on 5 devices simultaneously

Since August 2016 IPVanish allow its users to use their VPN subscription on as much as 5 devices at the same time. That is a fantastic upgrade as they earlier only allowed this on 2 devices. This means that a family of five only needs one single IPVanish subscription, and all five can use it at the same time! In a way you can also decide to invest in IPVanish with a friend or two as well, and thus share the cost of the IPVanish subscription. Doesn’t that sound like a good idea?

IPVanish servers

IPVanish has a total over more than 20000 IP addresses available on more than 500 servers in a total of 60 countries (and growing). They support OpenVPN, L2TP and PPTP protocols and as a user with a subscription you have access to all servers in all nations. You can easily connect to the different servers using the IPVanish client for Windows, iOS, Mac or Android. You can even filter out if you want to connect to different protocols, only the fastest servers and so much more. A more detailed article on the functions in the IPVanish application can be found here.

At the moment you can find servers in the following nations:

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

IPVanish Speed tests

To be able to write this IPVanish review we of course needed to test the speeds of the IPVanish servers. There are IPVanish servers in lots of nations, so things will vary, but in general we can say that their speeds are very good and we were satisfied with the results. At best we had speeds exceeding 20Mbps, while in the worst cases speeds were around 1Mbps. If you look for IPVanish speed information about one certain nation, read our articles dealing with IP addresses in different nations, or use the search bar on the right and write the name of the nation you are interested in (hopefully we will have posted an article about how to get an IP address in that nation including speeds tests giving you the VPN tools with the best speeds for that given nation).

    They state they do not log. ipVanish is 100% lying about their logging policies. Was contacted about a prohibited site on 6/7/13, responded stating I didn’t know what the site was. Never got a response. On 6/9/13 got 2nd notice for same site, and termination notice stating my acct had been terminated for violation of TOS. I again responded stating didn’t know what site they were referencing. I contacted ipVanish again asking for a refund, and was told no refund due to violation for TOS.

    1st if they don’t log what were they contacting me about. Crappy support due to absolute lack of response to the TOS notices, but they kicked my acct without any review what so ever. Then refused to refund the remainder of my months fees that were already paid for.

    Use at your own risk!

    • me says:

      If the company that complained has an IP they went off of that and IPVanish knows (just like an ISP) what IPs are used by the customers. IPVanish does say that when legal comes a knockin they will turn over whatever. I am not saying you are wrong but just bringing light to what they track.

      • fucawe says:

        Problem was I still have no idea what site I was supposedly doing something wrong on/with? Never got a single response from IPVanish except to kill my acct and refuse to refund prepaid service fees. Total BS from a customer support and good practice standpoint. I had been a customer for months. You want to do business with a company that treats paying customers like that, go for it. My $$$ went to elsewhere.

      • idiot says:

        I disagree with your statement. The whole reason to use a VPN is to mask your IP from the site visited so:
        1) If the visited site got his IP, while he was properly using the VPN, then the VPN is worthless
        2) IPVanish claimed in TorrentFreak’s 2015 VPN review that ” IPVanish has a zero-log policy. We keep NO traffic logs on any customer, ever.” But they certainly were able to track both who he was and what he connect to, which sort of blows the no logs claim (again presuming the VPN was correctly configured and used) as they must have gotten the claims after the site was visited.

        I think everyone needs to assume that the mom-and-pop nature of these companies and the claims they make to get business are all really suspect. The first time an FBI agent shows up and says we think you’re hiding users who are doing something we don’t like, and we’re shutting you down while we investigate, we’ll be done in a few years, the company will throw the user to the wolves in a second.

        Thanks for reading my rant LOL

    I work from home, and around 3-4 days a week i like to go to my local starbucks and work from there.(They have much better coffee and comfortable seating than my house 🙂 However, when my employer heard about it, he said he had no problem with me being there, but that I had been connecting to a public Wifi that would be very easy for someone to hack the company’s files on my mac. He recommended that if I really do work better there, that he would pay for a secure connnection for my computer. We agreed, and next thing I know the IPVanish software was running on my mac! Its so easy to connect to, especially for someone who knows nothing about these things. It also is obvious that my connection is actually faster than before when on the public wifi, so all in all I have much to thank IPvanish for. Figured id write a good review in return! IPVANISH IS SUPER EASY AND FAST! WELL WORTH YOUR MONEY!

    I’ve been so happy with IPVanish, I thought I would say thanks for the referral. My speeds on streaming sites are so fast, particularly Netflix has improved by leaps and bounds, I can actually watch the hd streams now 🙂 My isp, not saying who just to be nice, is not very netflix friendly. The IPVanish client is really easy to use especially when you’re on public wifi like in airports, alway good to know you’re protected… if you’re looking for a fast and easy to use vpn, checkout IPVanish, it’s the best 🙂

  4. Katherine Gardner says:

    IPVanish is the perfect VPN for me. I’ve been using this VPN for business for three years now. It provides me security without ever interrupting the internet connection. And I’m happy that they’ve added new servers now. If you are looking for a VPN to secure your browsing, I highly recommend IPVanish.

  5. MacSou says:

    I’ve just tried it and if that is the easiest VPN service on the market, I give up and will do without.
    On the setup process I was asked for account usernames and passwords so many times with no indication of what account we were talking about. Their help notes are never complete and require information you don’t have, to be understood. About their support… Automated! That’s enough said.

  6. Steve says:

    New to IP Vanish and have a problem, which is very likely not their fault but I need some assistance. Have logged two tickets and have had responses saying they would contact in 3 to 12 hours. No answer to first, going into day three, no answer to follow up now going to 24 hours.

    The service may be great when working, but customer service is not what they state it to be.

    • This is an old comment, but hope you managed to get things working with IPVanish. Their customer service has improved greatly in the latest year, so if you have a problem like this or similar, I suggest you try contacting their customer service again.
