Price: Free Time Limited Trial, Offers in-app purchases
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S4
Pros & Cons:
- Secure VPN connection!
- Choice of server location connection!
- Helps get around location & IP restrictions!
- Could only get app to properly work on one of three devices.
- Slow internet connection.
- States “Unlimited VPN Access” bandwidth when not quite true in trial.
SecureVPN secures your internet browsing via virtual private networks. In addition to changing your IP address, you gain added security of tunneling through a handful of servers thus avoiding location restrictions on content. The options are U.S., the Netherlands, Luxembourg, or Singapore. Using the app is super simple (if it works on your device). Note: you will have to give the app permission to intercept your internet traffic. After that just tap the “Connect” button, it secures the connection and you’re off!
In a few other speed tests we were able to get up to 1.8Mbps download and 4.4Mpbs upload max. In summary of the screenshots above, the internet browsing speeds were significantly reduced in our evaluations. Upon performing a few online DNS leakage tests, however, I did not find evidence of my real IP address being leaked. This is reassuring to those looking for anonymity in VPN apps.
I personally do not like that upon initially using the app it states “Unlimited VPN Access” for free when this is not true. As the trial expires (which seems to be 5 days) you are prompted to upgrade but not obligated to subscribe. There are incentives to gain more free bandwidth by inviting contacts, rating the app, and following on social media. You do gain 1000 MB of VPN data for free within this window which resets each month. SecureVPN plans are $3.99/monthly or $34.99/annually.
