PureVPN network is spread in 100+ countries. There are more than 500 servers offering 80,000+ IPs to go anonymous and restriction-free. We connected PureVPN with a number of servers from different parts of the world with various protocols and the experience was very satisfactory. The connection was stable, fast and the service met all our security and geo-unblocking requirements with ease. The experience was best on the Windows OS but rest were good as well.
Pricing is one of the key factors that make or break a product. PureVPN is very affordable, which is why its users are of all ages and using it for diverse needs and requirements. The monthly plan comes for as low as $9.95, the 6 months plan costs as low as $44.95 and the yearly plan can be acquired for $49.95 only.

PureVPN offers over 50 payment methods to the users. Some of the payment modes include PayPal, Visa, Moneybooker, Discover, American Express, MasterCard, WebMoney, Plimus, Payza and most importantly; Bitcoin.

Protocol Support & Encryption
PureVPN offers all the major protocols including PPTP, L2TP, SSTP, iKEv2, SSL and OpenVPN. We carried out different activities by connecting with different protocols and asked our technical team to try and breach the connection. Upon several failed attempts, our team was unable to decrypt any data on the PureVPN connection or hack the device. So all those users who are concerned about their privacy and security should sit back and relax once subscribed to PureVPN.
PureVPN supports all the major devices including PC, iPad, SmartPhones, Gaming Consoles, SmartTVs and Routers, running iOS, Android, Windows, Linux, OS X, Vista and so on.
P2P file sharing is supported on PureVPN. There are numerous servers to connect to in order to download or upload through P2P clients with fast speeds and the best part is that all of this will be done anonymously!
PureVPN allows simultaneous connectivity on up to 5 devices. PureVPN can actually be set up on 10 devices but 5 will work simultaneously. This is undoubtedly one of the best features a VPN provider can offer because utilizing 1 account credentials on multiple devices is very handy and saves a lot of money.

PureVPN does offer money back guarantee to its premium users. Make sure to read the refund policy to ensure you get the refund in case of not liking the service, which is though highly unlikely.
We checked on PureVPN’s website as well as confirmed this from their support officers; PureVPN does not maintain user activity logs. According to them, they only maintain session logs, which is for the betterment of the service. If this is true, it’s a huge plus point.

They are available 24/7/365 and their aim is to provide the required solution, rapidly and accurately. The support types include Forum, On Call, Live Chat, Remote Desktop and Support Ticket.
