My little Review

Recommended Posts

I am on my last day of the free trial and I do plan to subscribe soon. To the people that say it is slow, well I find it to be a bit true, but I have found that selecting to use through ssl tunnel has helped my speeds to be somewhat close to what I normally get, though sometimes it is kinda far off. It is according to what server you choose really.

 

I like the idea that I feel more secure with Air than I do with PIA's service. I feel Air does care for privacy and will stand up for the users. Look forward to being a real customer soon

Did you try to set the buffer size in the AirVPN client to to 256 kB? This has helped others (myself included) increase speeds.

 

(in "AirVPN" -> "Preferences" -> "Advanced" -> "General"). Click "Save" and start a new VPN connection.

I have a brand new gripe with PIA. They just adopted this policy:

They refuse to offer any kind of SmartDNS services. Even though they specifically advertised getting around geo-blocks on their website and advertising materials. Not to mention that I now doubt their no logging policy with their newfound intent to comply with domestic and international laws.

Yeah I got to the point that I don't trust them completely, I may not trust any vpn completely, but Air is the closest i will get to trust. I don't like the idea that PIA may be using VPS as well.

I checked some of their servers, I don't trust them, and with the help of AirVPN(They provided necessary information) I found their software to be faulty. Some of their servers even moved, where as AirVPN cancels when they get moved(refer to the Czech server Becrux withdrawl) PIA doesn't seem to, and their support isn't all that good at figuring out why their software won't tunnel right. I have no reason personally to believe they don't log either, that new policy only makes me believe less in that, the point of VPNs a lot of the time is to bypass geolocks of course them being an american company means they have to comply with such laws or be forcibly closed by their government where most VPN companys are in European or Asian countries to be better protected against these things and provide the service it is meant to be.

 

AirVPN so far is probably the most secure service I have found, and their staff very knowledgable I'm glad to be a customer.

Exactly, Look at the reviews of Choopa, one of their hosting companies they use. This is from people that use WOT https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/choopa.com That is what kinda scared me, maybe mostly scared me
