Here is our detailed step by step process to review and test any VPN service
The first step in our testing process is to measure the speed of each VPN. We use specialized speed test tools to measure download and upload speeds, latency, and other performance metrics. Our tests are conducted from multiple locations to provide a comprehensive view of VPN performance.
We use a range of tools to test the security of each VPN. This includes checking for IP and DNS leaks, verifying the encryption strength of the VPN connection, and assessing the presence of security protocols like OpenVPN and WireGuard.
Privacy is a critical concern for VPN users, and we take it very seriously in our testing. We evaluate each VPN's privacy policies, including the type of logs they keep and how they use user data. We also test for WebRTC leaks to ensure that the VPN is providing the level of privacy that users expect.
User experience testing
We use each VPN for extended periods of time to assess its ease of use and overall user experience. This includes testing the VPN's apps, servers, and customer support.
Finally, we test each VPN's features to ensure that they are providing the services they claim to provide. This includes testing the VPN's kill switch, server location, and compatibility with different devices and operating systems.
Here is how we rate each VPN service out of 10
Our experts calculate this rating based on a fixed set of testing categories that are important for all VPNs, no matter how you plan on using them. These ratings are formed from years of impartial, first-hand testing data.
Below are the 7 key areas and their respective weightage on which we rate every VPN:
We also rate every VPN in three other areas
We highlight it and give it its own subcategory rating, though, as to some readers it is considered an extremely important feature.
Price & Value
At vpnguide.com, we understand that cost is an important factor in choosing a VPN. That's why we carefully consider the price and value of each VPN in our reviews. We take into account not only the cost of the VPN itself, but also the features and services it offers, and we compare this to similar VPNs on the market.
Ability to Bypass Censors
In many countries, internet censorship is a growing concern. If you live in a country with strict internet regulations, the ability to bypass censors and access the internet freely is a key consideration in choosing a VPN. At vpnguide.com, we test each VPN's ability to bypass censors, and we provide you with detailed information about its performance in this area.
We look for VPNs with a large network of servers in multiple countries, as this can help ensure that you have a fast and reliable connection, no matter where you are in the world. Additionally, we also consider whether a VPN has servers in countries that are important to you, such as countries with high levels of internet censorship or those that you frequently travel to.
