Hong Kong based VPN.ht is an excellent zero-logs VPN provider. Their servers are mainly located in the US and Europe and support OpenVPN, L2TP, PPTP and SSTP protocols. What makes VPN.ht stand out, though, is their custom VPN applications for desktop and mobile platforms that are open-source and available for code review on Github. VPN.ht is also one of the few VPN providers that also supports Windows Phone.
Although VPN.ht is subject to Hong Kong law and not subject to laws such as the US Patriot Act, in the interests of transparency and accountability, VPN.ht issues a Warrant Canary on a daily basis – https://vpn.ht/canary.txt. It serves as a guarantee that none of VPN.ht servers were silently searched or seized by government officials.
More so, VPN.ht was the only VPN provider built into Popcorn Time streaming app – bittorent client with integrated media player similar to Netflix. In late 2015 Popcorn Time was temporarily shut down due to a pressure from MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America). The project reemerged within a few months, but the app no longer featured a built-in VPN client, unfortunately. Nonetheless, with only a few clicks you can install official open-source VPN.ht software and secure your Popcorn Time download activities making VPN.ht an excellent choice for users whose primary purpose is streaming copyrighted multimedia content or torrenting.
On top of that VPN.ht offers a SmartDNS service along with their VPN subscription completely free of charge. While SmartDNS doesn’t offer any kind of protection, it is a very convenient tool to access Netflix and Hulu just by changing your DNS settings.
