ibVPN specializes in providing invisible browsing VPN’s – in other words, VPN’s that can connect you to the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, France and several other countries regardless of where you live whilst not keeping any activity logs of your usage. This allows you to access geo-restricted services and websites like the BBC iPlayer, Hulu, Zattoo, Netflix, Pandora and many others, while remaining confident that your privacy is never breached. ibVPN, which is the abbreviation of Invisible Browsing VPN, offers private, secure browsing with no activity tracking, no traffic limitation (read: unlimited bandwidth; limited by your internet connection) and unlimited switches between servers.
Pricing & Plans
The IPvanish website offers three attractive and affordable pricing plans that cover the needs of all different types of customers. The longer plans offer bigger discounts and fringes as compared to the basic plan. The names of three plans are given below:
Main Features of ibVPN
ibVPN offers private, secure browsing with no activity tracking, no traffic limitation (read: unlimited bandwidth; limited by your internet connection) and unlimited switches between servers. This provider does not currently offer dedicated IP’s, which might limit their customers in a single IP area. In addition, ibVPN supports and listed under secure torrent vpn providers and it is solely compatible with DD-WRT supported routers. All other routers remain unsupported at this time.
ibVPN works with almost every protocol including the premier 3 – PPTP (manual setup or VPN client), L2TP (manual setup) and OpenVPN (VPN client). They, additionally, offer SSTP (accessible from the Middle East, Arab countries and China – only for Windows and Linux OS). Unfortunately, at this time, they do not support the SSL protocol. The encryption type for each protocol is 256-bit for OpenVPN and L2TP, and up to 128-bit for PPTP.
One of the unique aspects of ibVPN is its latest ibDNS feature, which allows its users to access popular media streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu without any loss of speed. It uses your VPN connection to pass the geo-restriction, but then lets you stream the media using your own internet connection. When using ibDNS, your real IP will be shown and not that of your VPN connection. On sites like Netflix, BBC iPlayer and other popular streaming services you probably don’t really want to hide your IP anyway.
