IVPN Review

Considering that IVPN founders are also organizational members of the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation), we are not surprised by IVPN dedication to online security and privacy.

IVPN dedicated software guards connection from various IP leaks: DNS leaks, IPv6 leaks, WebRTC leaks and standard disconnection issues. IVPN Firewall integrates deep into the OS and works independently from the app. Thus, when a component of the IVPN software crashes, data filtering will continue without interruption. Since any apps installed on your PC can connect to the Internet before a VPN starts, the “always-on” IVPN Firewall feature allows boot time protection that ensures no traffic bypasses VPN even during PC restart. So with IVPN Firewall enabled not only no DNS or IPv6 traffic leaks can occur, but also no general connection leaks. Thus making IVPN Firewall superior to a standard Kill Switch technology that only protects connection after the system start-up.

IVPN OpenVPN servers are configured to automatically generate new encryption keys every hour, hence, offering excellent Forward Secrecy to all IVPN users. Another great feature offered by IVPN is UDP and TCP port-forwarding: TCP/443, TCP/80, UDP/53 alternate ports are available.

For those who require even more advanced protection, IVPN implemented a “multihop” technology that reroutes traffic through multiple servers. Essentially, this features allows IVPN users to first connect to server A and from there to establish connection with server B. While it’s an excellent tool for the “paranoid”, please note that it will dramatically slow down your internet connection, hence, resulting in decreased performance.

Now to top it off, every month IVPN also publishes a Warrant Canary informing their users that IVPN has not been served with a secret government subpoena and no IVPN servers were seizure by 3rd parties.
