IPVanish has a fun interface at low cost, but how does it stack up against NordVPN’s security and speeds?
Before you shell out your well deserved money and focus on a two-year membership with a VPN, or virtual private organization, read our next to each other VPN correlation on two of the most famous VPNs available. Contrasted with its companions, IPVanish has one of the most incredible VPN UIs, empowering you to get in the engine and become familiar with the specialists fueling the innovation. In the mean time, NordVPN has gained notoriety for its solid association speed and unparalleled evaluating.
Here is the breakdown on each one’s qualities and shortcomings.
BETTER SPEED AND PRIVACY FEATURES
This heavy-hitter stays on our list of the best mobile VPNs for many reasons, including its status as the reigning champion of the bang-for-buck ratio. Hands-down, you aren’t going to get a VPN anywhere else that can do more than NordVPN does, as cheap as NordVPN does it. Despite a security breach in 2019, you’ll be hard pressed to find another VPN that can do what NordVPN does at all.
Sure, NordVPN could offer a little more privacy if it boosted the number of servers it owns, but I’m talking about 5,200-plus servers in 60 countries, a strict zero-log policy and a jurisdiction in Panama. It’s an encryption powerhouse and has a feature that allows you to VPN into Tor. It’s available for not only iOS and Android, but also Windows Phone and even BlackBerry.
With all that security, NordVPN has no business being as fast as it is. In my speed tests, NordVPN performed admirably, cutting our internet speed by about 32% on average (compared to about 65% speed loss with IPVanish), where most VPNs can reduce speeds by half or more. I found NordVPN’s speeds were reliably fast; There were never any sudden dips or service interruptions, and where I expected the VPN to underperform, it proved itself up to the task.
For all that, how much are you paying? The VPN company offers a one-year subscription plan for $4.92, but a two-year plan is $3.67 a month, or $99, billed at once. While the two-year price is lower than most other contenders, it’s still higher than IPVanish’s single-year plan, and Nord’s month-to-month price of $12 is at the high end of its spectrum. And yes, NordVPN also has a full 30-day refund policy if you aren’t happy with the service.
While a two-year plan is a big commitment to make to any service provider in the privacy field, NordVPN has developed a reputation for offering fair refunds.
