VPN Unlimited Review- Is Lifetime Subscription Worth It?

VPN Unlimited Review

VPN Unlimited Review- Introduction

This time, I’m reviewing a VPN provider called “VPN Unlimited” by KeepSolid Inc. Results? Not the best VPN, here’s why.VPN Unlimited was founded in 2013 and is located in the US (New York). Not the best jurisdiction for a VPN provider. However, they boldly state the following on their homepage: Secure, fast and easy to access to any site online But are they really fast? And can VPN Unlimited for Netflix really bypass Netflix’s geo-restrictions and keep you secure on a public Wi-Fi? In this in-depth VPN Unlimited review, I’ll do some research and give you a detailed look at their cons and pros, as well as whether I recommend using this VPN or not. Lets find VPN Unlimited Review in details. We’ll soon find out whether VPN Unlimited’s lifetime subscription worth taking.

VPN Unlimited Review- Pros 

VPN Unlimited For Netflix Can Bypass Netflix Block

Ever since 2016, Netflix has been putting a stop to any user accessing their website via a VPN or proxy. According to our research, roughly 70% of VPNs manage to bypass this block.

Luckily, VPN Unlimited for Netflix is no exception to this rule. VPN Unlimited for Netflix works on some server and doesn’t work for some. Below are the servers we tested on.

Here are the following servers we tested:

VPN Unlimited For Netflix servers for unblocking:

  • United States: California
  • Canada

VPN Unlimited for Netflix servers blocked by Netflix:

  • Hampshire, United Kingdom (BBC iPlayer)
  • Netherlands

2 servers out of 4 worked. So they’re not lying. That’s a good start.

Good, 24/7 Customer Support via Live Chat

As I have stated time and time again, most VPN providers are kinda bad when it comes to customer service. Much to my surprise and amazement that I should mention in this VPN Unlimited review, VPN Unlimited is the most responsive support team.

While it is true that they do not offer a live chat feature like many of the more premium VPN providers, the quality of their email/ticket support is unparalleled.

I submitted a simple query on their website (asking whether or not their services would protect me from someone monitoring network activity directly from the router) around 6:48 p.m. my time.

Since some time had passed since I last reviewed their customer service (which used to be terrible by the way), I just wanted to gauge the speed and efficacy of their support team to see if anything had improved.

And it has…

I was pleasantly surprised when, only 20 minutes later, I opened my inbox to find a helpful and polite response from one of their representatives.

When you compare the customer support of VPN Unlimited to some of the other VPNs on the market (for example VPNs like CyberGhost and IPVanish), the quality and speed of their service are actually quite remarkable.

While it might not stand up to ExpressVPN’s live chat feature, the support offered by VPN Unlimited is a breath of fresh air in a market plagued with shoddy customer service. We found this in our VPN Unlimited Review data.

Strong AES-256 encryption w/ OpenVPN, IPSec & Others…

VPN Unlimited encrypts your information with something called the Advanced Encryption Standard or AES. This is a strong security feature that I must include in this VPN Unlimited Review.

This super secure encryption standard is the same one used by federal agencies to transmit sensitive data and it is, quite literally, the most secure symmetrical encryption standard in existence (at least that we know of).

It’s true that most VPN providers already use AES-256 to encrypt your data, but since security is one of the primary concerns when selecting a new service, this still counts as a “Pro” in my book.

If you peruse the list of different VPNs that we have reviewed, you will undoubtedly notice that most (if not all) of them offer the above VPN tunneling protocols.

So what I must mention in this VPN unlimited review is why in the world would I list this as a “Pro” for VPN Unlimited?

Because of one special little extension.

KeepSolid Wise.

KeepSolid Wise is a special extension to the OpenVPN tunneling protocol that makes it difficult (nigh on impossible) to detect.

Think of it as your proverbial cloak of invisibility.

In countries with oppressive and outdated censorship laws, government officials will often search for individuals using VPNs to bypass their Draconian regulations.

As soon as they find one of these connections, they will throttle your performance and impede (or completely stop) your browsing session.

However, with KeepSolid Wise, you can slip through these nets and make your traffic appear just like any other standard connection.

And while this is a huge bonus for VPN Unlimited customers, unfortunately, it is not a bonus for all customers.

Currently, KeepSolid Wise is only available on the most recent versions of iOS, Android, Windows, and Linux. Sorry Mac users…

Update: Since January 2018, they have also included a built-in kill-switch feature to their app.

Their VPN Software is Smooth and Simple to Use

The interface on VPN Unlimited is incredibly easy to use we find this in our VPN Unlimited Review.

After launching their software you are only one click away from anonymous browsing, and their simple sidebar allows you to quickly find exactly what you are looking for.

While some of the more advanced users might find their overly simplistic interface to be a turn-off, for most customers, this easy to use dashboard will provide everything that you need and more.

Cons of using VPN Unlimited

They Aren’t Fast Enough (Slow Speed)

This VPN Unlimited review won’t be complete if we don’t mull over the bad sides.

After hearing about the VPN Unlimited lifetime subscription plan, many of you are probably chomping at the bit to get started with VPN Unlimited’s services, and I don’t blame you.

Unfortunately, their promise to provide Secure, fast, and easy access to any site online, has yet to be fulfilled.

While VPN unlimited is far from the slowest VPN that I have ever seen, they rank 50th out of 74 (well below average) and their server (which they have 400+, locations in 52 countries) are much slower faster than NordVPN’s which is a better and cheaper alternative.

Therefore, VPN Unlimited’s lifetime subscription plan doesn’t do much good the VPN users.

Here are our results without using a VPN:

Here are our speed test results when using VPN Unlimited:

US Server (New York)

  • Ping: 184ms
  • Download: 25.69 Mbps
  • Upload: 7.31 Mbps

EU Server (Amsterdam)

  • Ping: 37ms
  • Download: 47.13 Mbps
  • Upload: 24.70 Mbps

Asia Server (Hong Kong)

  • Ping: 335ms
  • Download: 12.42 Mbps
  • Upload: 2.92 Mbps

UK Server (London)

  • Ping: 51ms
  • Download: 59.69 Mbps
  • Upload: 42.09 Mbps

As always, you should take these tests with a grain of salt since they can vary wildly and are dependent on a number of uncontrollable variables. That being said, however, I have scoured the internet for other tests and even went so far as to ask some of my colleagues to test the speeds on their network and all of them reported similarly disappointing results.

While these aren’t the worst download or upload speeds that I have ever seen, if speed is of the essence for your VPN-related endeavors, then you should probably gloss through other VPN reviews to find a provider that can offer the performance you are looking for. Thus, you might need to give it a second before signing on the VPN Unlimited’s lifetime subscription plan.

They Possibly Keep Some Logs?

In their rush to secure their personal information and browsing activities, many VPN customers seem to forget that all of the information that they are trying to protect is still visible to their VPN provider unless the privacy policy explicitly states otherwise.

It’s a common practice for free VPN services to log your personal information and then sell it to advertisers and marketers to pay for the services that you are using.

However, most high-quality VPNs guarantee zero logging of your information or activity.

Unfortunately, VPN Unlimited is not one of them.

For starters, VPN Unlimited monitors how many people are trying to access their servers in order to maintain security and help customers troubleshoot network problems.

That seems harmless enough.

They also track the different clicks that you make inside of their software in order to optimize their interface and ensure the best customer experience possible.

Again, seems harmless apparently.

Limited Torrenting Capabilities

If you live in a country that enjoys the freedom of speech and do not plan on traveling anytime soon, then you’re likely in the market for a VPN for one of two reasons.

  1. You want to secure your connection while using public networks
  2. You want the ability to torrent online without worrying about potential legal fallout

Unfortunately, I must mention in this VPN Unlimited review it isn’t much use for potential customers who fall into the second category.

I took a look through VPN Unlimited’s FAQ and found this in response to the question “Is BitTorrent and other file-sharing allowed on all servers?”

You Need to Restart Your Computer After Installation

I know that this is a pretty minor bone to pick, but I couldn’t resist.

With so many VPNs on the market that allow you to secure your browsing experience only a few minutes after making your purchase, I was disappointed to find that VPN Unlimited requires you to restart your device in order to get started with their services.

This isn’t exactly a deal breaker, but considering some of the other problems with this VPN, I was hoping for more seamless user experience.

VPN Unlimited Pricing, Plans and Payment Method 

We found VPN Unlimited Review, at the fag end of our discussion, money matters at the end of the day. Let us have a look at the price and policies for this VPN Unlimited.

Monthly Plan: $9.99

At $9.99, VPN Unlimited isn’t breaking into any new territory when it comes to VPN pricing. This is a pretty standard rate that can be expected across the board.

This equates to:

  • $9.99 per month
  • $119.88 per year
  • 0% Savings

Yearly Plan: $59.99

Unlike most providers, VPN Unlimited doesn’t have any middle ground between their one month and twelve-month packages. If you want to buy a VPN for short-term travel purposes (i.e. a 3-month business trip abroad), then you will probably want to shop around a little bit more to find a company with a plan that is more tailored to your needs.

Here’s the break down:

  • $5.00 per month
  • $59.99 per year
  • 50% savings

The “Infinity” Plan: $149.99

If this plan is making you scratch your head and mutter “Meh?” under your breath, you are not alone. The only lifetime pricing benefit that is offered in the VPN market is by the VPN Unlimited’s lifetime subscription plan.

Not to mention that all things considered, this plan is pretty darn cheap.

Only time will tell if this business move is genius or ludicrous, so until then, let’s suffice it to say that if you plan on using a VPN for the foreseeable future, this might be the cheapest option in existence (unless, of course, you are willing to settle for a sub-par free service).

VPN Unlimited also offers a 7-day money back guarantee on all of their plans so if you do make a purchase and then decide that they aren’t the VPN you are looking for, you can easily get your money refunded.

All the major payments options are available, such as Credit Card, PayPal, and Bitcoin for anonymous payments.

It’s also worth mentioning that once you’re signed up, you have “auto-renew” ON. Unless you plan to keep using them, it’s worth turning it OFF.

VPN Unlimited For China- Does It Work? 

VPN Unlimited for China have access to 6 VPN regions, including Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

All high-speed servers at disposal of VPN Unlimited for China, work well and allow unrestricted access to content available in their respective regions. However, some users do report having problems with connection stability. The VPN Unlimited team is aware of these troubles in China and the useful solution proposed is opting for the KeepSolid Wise encryption protocols that provide more stable connections.

Our team tested VPN Unlimited for China with and without the employment of the KeepSolid Wise feature. The results point to VPN Unlimited’s overall ability to bypass censorship; the Wise feature did provide greater stability and it seems that Singapore is the best option if you are looking for good speeds.

Based on all the information we have gathered, we can conclude that VPN Unlimited for China is a rather good choice for Chinese VPN users

Do I recommend VPN Unlimited?

To put it bluntly…in our VPN Unlimited Review.

No, I do not recommend this VPN service despite VPN Unlimited’s Lifetime subscription plan. I went into the review process with high hopes.

Their app is OK for hiding your IP and protecting your data, but…

There are too many much better VPNs on the market (at a similar or even cheaper price) to settle on a service that provides such limited capabilities and slow performance.

Overall, you’d be better off with either ExpressVPN (rated #1st) or NordVPN (rated #2nd) in our VPN reviews.
