SaferVPN - App Review



You might think that VPN (Virtual Private Network) is something for large organisations; absolutely not, it's for you.

Sometimes you need to be somewhere else than you are physically. Have you ever wanted to watch your favourite TV show but couldn't because of access restrictions, or wanted to hide your IP address? Safer VPN takes care of this and many things besides.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
You can start a free trial by simply entering your e-mail and setting up a password.

You can now choose your location (that is the location that you wish to appear to be in) from:

Australia
Austria
Brazil
Canada
Denmark
Finland
France
Germany
Hong Kong
India
Israel
Italy
Japan
Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Russia
Singapore
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland
United Kingdom
United States (East or West)

Now press the Connect button and wait a second or two... the button changes to Connecting and then Disconnect.

At the same time you will notice your iOS device has a VPN icon towards the top left of the screen.

That's all there is to it until you hit Disconnect.

Cost
You can try the App for free and then upgrade to unlimited data and the full list of countries by an in App purchase for $6 per month (if purchased annually), with options for multiple devices at the same time for an additional fee.

It is important to note that the App can be used on multiple devices (but not at the same time), as well as on a PC.

Indispensability
If you never leave your 'home' country, and it has unrestricted Internet access, and you don't care who knows where you are then, you have no need for a VPN App; for the rest of us, this is, on occasions, a necessity. Most VPN Apps require the installation of VPN configurations; SaferVPN does not so it is very easy to set up.

Dependability
It works as described; you can easily check your IP address and see how it changes as you alter the VPN location.

Security
This App enhances your security although, anyone determined would also be able to work out that you are using a VPN. Unless there is IP level blocking, this shouldn't be an issue. The App is self-contained, so no concerns on this front.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Easily change location for iOS and PC (Mac and Android as well but not tested).
