SaferVPN Review- Pros
Great Download Speeds
Before writing this SaferVPN review, we ran few tests to check its speed and what we found out is.
SaferVPN is fast…Just to back this up, here are the results without using SaferVPN according to
a speed test done i.e while using SaferVPN, I managed to achieve an impressive 79.23 Mbps on
an EU server, making SaferVPN the 5th fastest VPN (out of 70+) . SaferVPN download and upload
speed is as follows according to several locations:
US Server (New York)
Download: 57.47 Mbps
Upload: 23.09 Mbps
EU Server (Amsterdam)
Download: 79.23 Mbps
Upload: 27.78 Mbps
Asia Server (Hong Kong)
Download: 1.28 Mbps
Upload: 0.37 Mbps
UK Server (London)
Download: 64.38 Mbps
Upload: 39.40 Mbps
As always take these speed tests with a grain of salt since they rely on so many different
variables and can change from person to person. However, we have tested over 70+ VPNs for
this site so we have a baseline that we can compare every VPN against. After all, with download
speeds this fast, there’s no way that SaferVPN could offer their services at a budget-friendly
price, right? But this is completely wrong.
Seamless Installation and Use
Call me petty, but I absolutely detest VPN providers who force users to restart their devices
after installing the VPN client. Luckily, not only is SaferVPN “Restart Free”, they are also one of
the simplest and most user-friendly VPNs that we have ever reviewed. Safer VPN does complete
justice to its name and can be used tension free as they ensure you total safety. With one of
the most straightforward user interfaces, SaferVPN makes it easy to use their service and you
can protect your device with just the click of a button. They also make it easy to quickly find and
optimize your settings and ensure that you have the perfect connection for your specific goals.
Although it might not be the most feature-rich provider, their intuitive design and easy to
navigate interface makes using their software an absolute delight. Thus we can give a thumbs up
in this SaferVPN Review.
They have Effective Customer Service
Like ExpressVPN, SaferVPN’s customer support definitely will exceed from all your
expectations. Their team isn’t the most knowledgeable support crew but they will get your work
done that too in just a few minutes. However, you will at times feel they were using automated
software to respond to any of the questions or customer support inquiries. No one can verify the
theory but SaferVPN uses robots to answer some of the more common queries that are submitted
through their chat feature and, if you look at the above correspondence, you will understand why.
Considering the overall quality of their customer support and the general friendliness of their
team, it must be said in this SaferVPN review that SaferVPN needs applause on their customer
Kill Switch and 5 Simultaneous Connections
As I’ve already mentioned in this SaferVPN Review, SaferVPN does not offer a particular feature
dense service and good that they don’t. After using their VPN for some time, it’s clear to me that
they focused almost all of their resources on optimizing their servers, creating an efficient support
team, and offering their services at an affordable price. SaferVPN does a few things great whereas
most of their competitors do a lot of things acceptable. SaferVPN offers all of the features that truly
matter, including a kill switch and a generous five device simultaneous connection limit. Both of
these features are welcomed additions to an already stellar service and you must be happy to
that unlike many of their competitors SaferVPN’s kill switch feature works exactly as advertised.
Kill Switch is a feature that disconnects you instantly when you lose your Internet connections.
This avoids your IP being leaked. This is a good point that should be mentioned in this SaferVPN
Jurisdiction is in Israel
Headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, the mere location of SaferVPN might make it seem like
they’ve lost the game before they even set foot on the field. After all, Israel has become an
increasingly tumultuous and politically charged region, making many VPN buyers hesitant about
trusting their privacy to a company located at the center of the turmoil. You might get pretty
nervous after learning about its location However, you must know the fact that Israel might
actually be one of the best jurisdictions for a VPN due to their privacy laws that severely limit
the government’s legal ability to track and monitor ordinary citizens. Although it’s not ideal for
a VPN provider to be headquartered in a country so deeply embedded with the “Five Eyes”
information sharing partnership, you can rest easy at night knowing that the law and
Works with Netflix- But not all but some servers
Netflix, SaferVPN seemed to work. Obviously, not all of the servers worked, maybe 30%, since
Netflix is actively trying to crack down VPN providers and block their IP’s to respect their geo-
restrictions. Let’s have a quick summary look in this SaferVPN Review:
“US streaming” server option worked nicely for me – quick and easy
US East server didn’t connect to Netflix at all
Canadian server was blocked by Netflix
Netherlands server worked nicely
UK server was blocked by Netflix
SaferVPN & Netflix
US East server, UK and Canadian servers didn’t work with Netflix
SaferVPN & Netflix (2)
Netflix worked on “US Streaming” and Netherland servers.
SaferVPN For Netflix Client Setup
If you want to use SaferVPN for Netflix, here is what you need to do:
- Launch the SaferVPN app on your device and login using SaferVPN Username and Password.
- Click on the Location icon next to the Connect button.
- Choose US Streaming from the list of servers and click Connect.
Once it is done, enjoy seamless streaming of Netflix content.
SaferVPN Review- Cons
Although SaferVPN has a lot of great things going for it as you can see in this SaferVPN Review, their
services aren’t perfect and they aren’t for everyone. So before you go smashing that “Buy Now” button,
let’s take a quick look at some of the “Cons” of using SaferVPN’s services.
Torrenting is Limited
Personally, this was the biggest point of contention with SaferVPN’s services that I need to mention
in this saferVPN review . Considering that they have such a vast collection of servers, you would
imagine that they would have spent some time optimizing at least a few of those servers for P2P transfers
and torrenting. However, SaferVPN only has one server out of their collection of 700 that works for
these purposes. (Their Netherlands server if you’re wondering). If you plan to use their services solely
for torrenting then forget it. There are much better VPNs available for torrenting (here are 7 best).
This particular “con” is far from a deal breaker, but it is an issue that the company must take
The “No Logging” Policy Could Be More Strict
Something that always bothers me about VPN companies is how misleading their logging
policies can be. In fact, if you dig through their privacy policies, it’s not uncommon to find
companies that advertise a “Zero Logs” policy while actually logging a metric crap ton of data.
Although SaferVPN doesn’t quite fall into that category. As you can see, this isn’t quite the
“Zero Logs” policy that we are promised. Although it’s far from ideal, SaferVPN’s logging policy
isn’t to be particularly worried about. Would you prefer to use a VPN that doesn’t log any of
your information? You bet. Does SaferVPN’s logging policy preclude your from using their
services? Not at all.
SaferVPN For China Doesn’t work
If I ask you to think of the first country where you would need to use a VPN, what comes to
mind? China, right? Considering their draconian government and oppressive censorship laws,
China is one of those countries that you shouldn’t visit without a fully functioning VPN.
Unfortunately, according to many third-party sources, SaferVPN’s For China’s applications will
no longer work while on Chinese soil. And this is a big problem for the company. Expats and
travelers all across the world rely on high-quality VPN providers (like SaferVPN) to unblock content
and keep themselves safe and the fact that their services no longer work in the region is a big blow to
their potential customer base. If you aren’t traveling to China anytime soon, then you can
ignore this point, buy SaferVPN, and go along your merry way. Otherwise, you will need to
purchase a more premium service like ExpressVPN.So this con that I’ve mentioned in this SaferVPN
review is pretty big of a deal.
SaferVPN Review- Pricing Plans
In this SaferVPN Review it needs mention that I was actuallu astonished to find that their services
are actually marketed at an incredibly budget friendly and affordable price. Like, less than $4 a
month affordable… However, you’ll need to be ready to pay 2 years upfront – $83.77. That’s a lot for
a VPN that you’re not 100% sure you’ll use again after 12 months. All of their packages offer the same
features and services and the only difference between them is how long you actually get to use
Let’s see how it all breaks down.
$10.99 per month i.e Rs 780.18/ month
$131.88 per year i.e Rs 9362.18per annum
Annually: $65.88 i.e Rs 4676.82
$5.49 per month i.e Rs 389.74
$65.88 per year
Bi-Annually: $78.96 i.e Rs 5605.37
$3.29 per month i.e Rs 233.56
$39.48 per year i.e Rs 2802.69
Some of you might remember that SaferVPN they offered a 14-day money back guarantee and
a 24 hour free trial. Unfortunately for hesitant buyers, SaferVPN no longer offers that.
However, they have improved their money back guarantee and extended the return window
competitors, doesn’t have any surprise “catches” or caveats to their 30-day policy either.
Regardless of how many connections you initiate or how many GB of data you download, you
can request a full refund for your purchase as long as you do so within 30 days. SaferVPN also
allows their users to pay with a Credit Card, PayPal, Bitcoin (anonymous payment) or
Paymentwall meaning that, if privacy is an issue, your entire purchase can be made with

SaferVPN Review- Final Verdict
So Do I Recommend it? Not really, but they’re not a bad option as well. Out of the 70+ VPNs that
have been reviewed, SaferVPN currently ranks 9th overall and 5th in speed, but some of the cons do
make them un-recommendable. They offer fast (and stable) speeds, a seamless interface, and good
customer service all at a decent price. While their services aren’t definitely free of problems and we hope
that the company must improve their Torrenting capacity and logging policy. Otherwise, it gives a
satisfactory response. However, you can opt for better VPNs with better performance like
NordVPN which offers similar features and is also more torrent-friendly.
