ibVPN is a Romania based VPN provider with a heavy focus on torrenting, gaming and providing high-speed access to streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer with their ibDNS service. ibVPN is also one of the VPN providers that can bypass Netflix proxy error (please contact ibVPN support for more info).
All 100 ibVPN servers use Blowfish algorithm with 256-bit encryption to secure your data before transmitting it to the Internet. ibVPN users can conveniently switch between OpenVPN (UDP/TCP), L2TP, SSTP, PPTP protocols using their custom app. IPsec/IKEv1 is available for iOS users that offers a much better experience on iPhone comparing to OpenVPN protocol. For more info on this please refer to our Best VPN for iPhone guide.
Additionally, Mac and Windows apps include Kill Switch and auto reconnect features that guard connection from unexpected data leaks. For increased security ibVPN also has a feature that shuts down certain preselected apps when VPN connection drops. This is an amazing feature for BitTorrent users because when there is a problem with a VPN server, not only will ibVPN disable insecure data transfers, but will also automatically close the apps themselves. For instance, if you add uTorrent to the list, when VPN connection drops, ibVPN software will force uTorrent app to completely close!
Another handy tool is server load check that allows ibVPN users to select the best server with the least load. Along with this, VPN software can also switch between TCP and UDP ports that might further increase download speeds.
ibDNS is Invisible Browsing SmartDNS service that gives access to over 100 TV channels and streaming services in USA, Canada, UK, France, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlandds, Finland and more. SmartDNS is easier to use comparing to VPN. Once DNS servers were changed in Network settings, ibVPN servers automatically detect which location the user should appear from and swap necessary location related data. ibVPN SmartDNS also works on streaming players, playstations, xbox consoles and routers.
Gaming fans will appreciate ibVPN Netherlands server specifically designed to provide the best ping from i3D.net game servers that host majority of servers for Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Battlefield Bad company 2, Counterstrice GO, Call of duty 4, Minecraft, Ark: Survival Evolved and many others. Expected ping between Netherlands VPN server and i3D.net game servers is <1 ms!
All of the above makes ibVPN is an excellent VPN service that not only protects their users from government mass surveillance, 3rd party tracking and hackers, but also gives access to geo-restricted multimedia content and torrenting.
We’d like to note, however, to prevent their service from abuse by spammers and other illegal activities ibVPN keeps timestamp and an IP address used to connect to their VPN server for 7 days. This means that even though ibVPN is based in a perfect jurisdiction, it’s not a zero-logs VPN provider and should not be used to hack into government databases 🙂 Nevertheless, ibVPN encourages torrenting and does not cooperate with DMCA or other agencies on matters related to copyright.
