  1. Hello! Didn't you see the Brazilian server that was just added?
  2. Hello! That's answered here.
  3. Hello! Please read the First Questions section in the guide in my signature. TL;DR: No service can guarantee such a thing, not least because even the best security can be undermined if the user isn't careful. But in certain scenarios, yes a VPN will help - such as if you're connecting to a WiFi network while connected to AirVPN - then would-be eavesdroppers on the network will have a much harder time. Practically, you can start with using Network Lock, then go about checking how private your browser is, such as through the EFF panopticlick website. From there, experiment with privacytools.io for example.
  4. Hello! I note the change: So everything below the 1 year plans, do not get the discount anymore. It's still weird to me, that the birthday celebrations still aren't the ones with the biggest and widest discounts. Seems more worthy to me . Happy birthday.
  5. Hello! It depends on the latency and/or what IP you want at the time. Otherwise they're all essentially the same. Boredom? Otherwise not really - usually not for new users at least. It's considered a superior choice to pick one outside your home country - use the black/white lists. Do note that a VPN isn't a silver bullet for privacy though. Normally no. If you're using Network Lock, you won't be able to browse until the connection is reestablished. But just verify through ipleak.net what IP you've got at any given time. Yes if you use Network Lock. No? ???? No? You may also read the guide in my signature.
  6. 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.
  7. Hello! It's refreshing to see a video review. I must say, that regardless of your review, that this is the most important: 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 .
  8. Hello! Please try airvpn.info
  9. Hello! Please see this link and submit a support request.
  10. Hello! Have you tried downloading the Beta client 2.17.2? There's instructions in my signature. Otherwise you can also try to submit a support ticket if you're still experiencing issues .
  11. Probably the end of May. But it's listed in my guide at any rate, in the First Questions section.

    EFF & FSF Support?

    It took a few years, but now AirVPN officially supports the EFF . Not by a small amount either! Air is now supporting as a "Super Major" donor. So we're talking at least $2,500, so that's at least 2,240 EUR.

    Fractal Snip3r

    Hello! Answered here.
  14. LZ1

    100 errors?

    Hello! Answered here. I'm pinning this, as it's a slightly recurring issue, which there's no need to make many threads about :).
  15. Hello! And now after an interesting exchange, it got a little too interesting, with insults. Locked. Goodbye!
  16. Why not try an alternative client then, simply?
  17. Hello! As much risk as there is, willfully bypassing a security measure
  18. Hello! And to add to this, remember to re-connect to a server each time, for the changes to take effect.
  19. Nadre, you may be able to achieve something similar, if you go to Browse>My Activity Streams>Create New Stream>Then tick the boxes associated with seeing topics and including everything. Then your custom stream will show up under My Activity Streams.
  20. I could not agree more. It's especially bad if one isn't even using a valid e-mail address - as AirVPN allows - thus one won't get notifications as much presumably. @NoiselessOwl There are some bugs and they're being worked on :). I actually just experienced what you described, when I posted, clicked "multiquote" then edited my reply. But I can't immediately reproduce it. This was in Chromium. I also see my post count went from 2002 or so to 1990. Hm. Well the 90's were great anyhow 😄
  21. Have you tried using a different browser, such as Chrome? It also appears I'm not getting notifications of replies, even though it should be enabled.
