HideIPVPN offers a very focused VPN service with a unique viewpoint. Their network is not as vast as others, but they work hard to make sure that their customers are satisfied.
Their clear policy on allowing P2P and torrenting on certain servers also helps users know what is and what isn’t acceptable on their service. All in all, we like HideIPVPN, but they simply don't have the server network to rank amongst the biggest VPNs in the industry.
HideIPVPN has above average speed on some servers, however in other countries it has below average speeds. It all seems to depend upon the server you connect to, but the German server was the most consistently fast. It is also possible that their small server network was overtaxed at times. During a number of weeks of testing they were found to have no reliability issues.
HideIP VPN has one of the most confusing pricing structures in the industry. They have many different price points:
HideIP VPN have done some interesting things with their dedicated VPN client:
They have a very small, and dedicated group of servers. What is not a good sign is that they used to have more. Just a year ago they were in 8 countries instead of 7, and they had 30 servers instead of 28. This is not a good sign for a small VPN which should be growing, but is instead shrinking.
They currently have servers in:
Their support comes in the usual three manners. This includes:
An exceptional money back guarantee
HideIPVPN offers a 30 day money back guarantee on their VPN service. We haven’t personally requested a refund, but users who have requested refunds have not had major issues.
Good for surfing and downloading!
HideIPVPN keeps you anonymous and secure online. Their no-logging policy is strong, but not as well regarded as IPVanish. According to HideIPVPN:
“1. We know what user account connected to which server (and type of protocol used) – WE DO NOT TRACK YOUR ACTIVITY when you “pass through” our VPN servers.
2. Those informations are only kept for 3 days and automatically deleted / overwritten. 3 days is all we need to make sure if new client did or did not connect to our servers and if he/she is eligible for refund.”
If HideIP VPN's network had continued growing, instead of the contraction in the last year, they could have moved up in our rankings. They have a good client, with decent features, and a slightly confusing pricing structure, but that could've been overcome by some sort of growth. The ownership of the service, or at least those who claim to be owners, are not forthcoming with the location of their offices. This could be a bit of a concern, they list Moldova and the USA as founding locations, but will not say where their offices are.
As it stands, they are an adequate VPN provider, but nowhere near a match for your money when compared to IPVanish.
