VPN.AC SecureProxy – a Browser-based VPN for Chrome

Like ibVPN, SecureProxy is a browser-based VPN service based in Romania. Netsec Interactive Solutions, a security company, runs the proxy service.

With over 70 servers in 20 countries and company-owned DNS servers with AES 128-bit encryption, VPN.AC has brought the top guns with this product. The proxy server also includes support for OpenVPN and Elliptic Curve Cryptography.

SecureProxy is available as browser extensions for Chrome, Opera, and Firefox, and also as an Android app.

As a first timer, you can try out the service with their seven days trial account which cost $2 only. Their VPN plan costs $9/month with discounts available for bulk purchases: $24/3 months, $36/6 months and $58/year.

VPN.AC accepts a broad range of payment methods including Bitcoin, AliPay, Perfect Money, gift cards and lots more.

How it Works

VPN.AC offers a simple, straightforward package for $9 per month that include the entire service the offer. The package includes access to multiple servers in 12 countries scattered across North America and Europe with one server in HongKong.

SecureProxy gives you a choice between PPTP, L2TP/IPsec and OpenVPN (both TCP and UDP) VPN protocols.

In our tests, we got average speed from the proxy dropping 4MB/s at its worst point. The Proxy server allows P2P downloading (torrent) on all servers, but we found it far more efficient while using the Europe-based servers.

As expected from a security company, their privacy policy looks good. According to VPN.AC, they only keep connection logs for one day. They do not store your activity logs (e.g. browsing history.) For enhanced security, the connection logs are kept on a separate, encrypted server (located in a non-disclosed location) which automatically erases them on a daily basis.

Quite impressive for a relatively unknown company, VPN.AC sports one of the best customer support of the VPN providers we have tested. With responsive live chat and quickly handled ticket, you should have problems with their service resolved in the shortest possible time.

Verdict

Despite it flaws, we consider SecureProxy a good VPN extension with rooms for improvement. Also, their innovative systems help improve security and overall experience of using the VPN. However, we were not overly impressed with the speed test result from using the VPN.
