    Pros
    You can also chose a location or accept the best connection. This means you have ease of use coupled with a choice of more complex settings such as a dedicated IP.
    I also tried the mobile version and it's very good. The best thing in this subscription is that there is a big list to choose.
    The web browser extension is one of the best and is easy to use. In addition, it has servers separately mentioned for unblocking popular streaming websites like Netflix etc.
    Cons
    Sometimes, it takes a while to locate the nearest and right servers remotely. Worse thing is that I found out that it causes conflicts with my local internet connection.
    There are certain locations in Asia that advertise as ready to connect, but the attempts time out. I very minor annoyance at worst.
    Acceptable, but disappointing considering I paid less than $15 a year for five years of service I am not going to complain too much.

    An excellent VPN with some drawbacks

    Reviewed a year ago

    Overall the VPN allows us to meet our end goal as we do business in both the UK and Germany and sometimes it is necessary to appear to be from one location when in another.

    Pros

    PureVPN is easy to install and maintain across both desktop and mobile with apps available for a number of devices. With the app installed then it is an easy one click to connect securely to the VPN. You can also chose a location or accept the best connection. This means you have ease of use coupled with a choice of more complex settings such as a dedicated IP. Unlike other VPNs we tried there is a lot less of not being able to access sites or cloud flare popups.

    Cons

    The basic VPN function works fine, however I have not been able to get the dedicated IP to function properly and just keep getting an error when trying to connect to it. However the level of English from support made it difficult to troubleshot so now I do not use this feature.

    Another app with great promises and almost 0 delivery

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    For the first several months I was a happy user until the day I had to contact the support for an issue restricting me to use the service.

    Pros

    I give them the credit that the desktop app is made to look shiny and modern. On first sight it look like you have plentiful of options to choose different servers and locations. Overall it has a good touch to detail.

    Cons

    There are a few things that I really did not like about this software. First of all sometimes I need to connect to a different server on the same location and obtain different IP for testing purposes, but this feature is not present unfortunately. While everything is working and you don't need to contact the support everything is fine, but if you do, don't expect fast answer and resolution of your...
