AirVPN Made Tier 1 for Tom Spark's Review Rankings

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just a small time  YouTuber and blogger here, but AirVPN just made my top tier 1 VPN rankings, the only VPN to do so. The review is probably not perfect, but I think I nailed what makes AirVPN stand out! Hopefully it encourages more people to use it. Let me know if you have any feedback about my review, what you liked, or hated, etc. Thanks!

Hello!

It's refreshing to see a video review. I must say, that regardless of your review, that this is the most important:

I am affiliated, but not sponsored by any VPN. This means I do make money when you click on the links provided, but keep my own opinion to be legit and truthful without bias. I do not host sponsored content on this channel, which means I am not paid to promote VPNs in a positive manner. All of my opinions on this channel are strictly my own!

I'm impressed that you mentioned the forums as a useful element as a part of the VPN experience, in conjunction with the no logging. That's easily missed. 
  • But you missed the reasoning behind why AirVPN doesn't offer the live chat feature which you requested, it seems.
  • Further, I don't think it's reasonable to list it as a con that there weren't enough or should be more servers and then not specify what - if any - you were looking for. But AirVPN just added a whole new country actually. 
  • Since security/privacy is one of AirVPNs selling points, I also think it would've helped your review, if you had made it clearer that Air doesn't just add any server because it's popular, but only if it's the right thing to do. 
  • In the same vein, you could then have considered adding some more factoids about those servers, such as them all being bare metal, which can be important for many reasons.
  • There's many other aspects I think you could've gone more into: how Bitcoin is handled, the approach to P2P, Android Eddie and so forth. You can read a list of Air-related security links in my guide's First Question section.
  • I'm surprised you didn't mention the apparent complexity of Air that much. It was mentioned briefly with Eddie's menu's, while other reviewers usually make a bigger deal out of all the technical jargon.
  • Perhaps in a future review, you could attempt to test certain features more. Such as - how good is Network Lock actually? After all, "killswitches" are a big deal, but they don't always work fully. 
Overall not bad :).

Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

Personally the only missing country that disappoints me right now is Iceland. Their privacy laws are really good, better than even Switzerland. It's a glaring omission from the server list and it's simply disregarded because we have Norway and Sweden which are not comparable to Iceland in terms of legal protection and stance/cooperation. 

There are a handful of other providers that have it like ProtonVPN and IVPN, but AirVPN is just too good to switch cause of a single missing country.

No, I don't think that's entirely accurate. We must assume that Air wants to add as many locations as possible, but only if it makes sense - both legally, but certainly also technically.

The request for Iceland servers is approximately as old as my account here.. I'm not sure we ever heard a reason why no Iceland servers exist, but we can assume that currently there's no viable datacenter which might be able to provide a stable Gbit link and has acceptable prices.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.
