Dear friends,
Any one who has the opportunity to use Wevpn services can share their thoughts?

A newcomer, it seems. I'd give them a bit more time to develop everything. So far:

  • Server country selection is mostly sound – if you ignore things like UAE and Brazil.
  • Support for all relevant protocols, which is nice. Wireguard caveats are in privacy policy instead of FAQ, which is weird, but okay, it's there. Moving on.
  • Closed source software. Yellow flag. No Linux means general focus on revenue. Didn't check any of them; how should I, anyway?
  • Microsoft and Google crash reporting services in software. Yellow flag. Would've appreciated something open sourcey and selfhosted like sentry.io.
  • Mention of a warrant canary again. Still not sure if they work..
  • I think an expert would choose a firewall over application-based killswitch functionality any day, this hasn't happened here. A bit sad, but maybe driven by the general VPN user base always looking at a killswitch feature in a VPN service app, and not understanding that firewalls are more robust, even if somewhat more difficult to setup and troubleshoot.
  • Trifle: Some of the FAQ answers are not updated or even checked for spelling, grammar and logic. On Static or Dedicated IP address? for example both dynamic and static addresses are ruled out, even with a lexical syntax error, creating the potential for confusion.
Then, privacy policy:

Although we provide unlimited data transfer, if we notice that a single user pushes more traffic than thousands of others combined, therefore affecting the quality of service for other WeVPN users, we are able to correlate aggregate data across WeVPN network to a user (by email) for abuse prevention purposes and therefore we may contact that user for an explanation.
"We log your usage, and if we think you're naughty, we will contact you. If we couldn't reach you, we will terminate access. If we could, your answers can and will be used against you." Sounds liberating, still want to torrent with WeVPN? :) We can say that a working mail is required.

But above all I found this one downright hilarious:

As veterans of the VPN industry, we are aware of ThatOnePrivacySite and the resources they put together to highlight potential issues with VPN providers which may compromise the privacy and security of their users. To make thing's easier for ThatOnePrivacySite, here are the answers to their questions:
At least they're aware how that guy ranks VPN services, they're happy to provide him with a template. :DSame rules apply: I can simply set up a new VPN service, promise him everything and more and it'd be the best in the market!

» I am not an AirVPN team member. All opinions are my own and are not to be considered official. Only the AirVPN Staff account should be viewed as such.

» The forums is a place where you can ask questions to the community. You are not entitled to guaranteed answer times. Answer quality may vary, too. If you need professional support, please create tickets.

» If you're new, take some time to read LZ1's New User Guide to AirVPN. On questions, use the search function first. On errors, search for the error message instead.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.

 

» Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, chances are you will be unique amond the mass again.
