Invisible Browsing VPN, or ibVPN for short, is a relatively new player in the personal VPN service market, but they have come out strong with solid offerings for customers. Invisible Browsing is best known for their anonymous browsing software solution of the same name. The VPN service is a recent expansion, and ibVPN offers two major categories of VPN plans: single user and multi user. This is what sets them apart from a number of VPN service providers because most VPN services do not offer options for multiple users. Think of a multi user account like a family account on your cell phone. One plan, one price, a certain number of connections. Although these types of plans aren’t completely unheard of – they are not typically offered by a lot of larger VPN providers. However, they can provide a substantial savings for households looking for VPN services, or people with lots of computers that all require VPN service.
Invisible Browsing VPN has servers in most of the major countries such as: US, Canada, UK, Netherlands, Russia, Germany, France and, Ireland. Their recent expansions have grown their core servers, as well as added new areas like Turkey, Egypt, and Singapore. This should be enough to satisfy most users, and provide the ability to access content around the globe. ibVPN is so confident in their services that they offer a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee, and 10 day money back guarantee. In the world of online services, and VPN services, a 10 day money back guarantee is nothing to laugh at. If you can’t figure out whether you like the service and get a good connection from their servers in 10 days…the problem is probably not ibVPN, it’s probably you! When you combine this with the multi vpn package, ibVPN is actually something a small business could look at as a potential VPN solution. Multi VPN would handle the number of connections, and the guarantee ensures you aren’t stuck with a service that doesn’t work.
The plan prices for individual users are fairly competitive, and our editors think ibVPN does a good job of packaging their VPN services into regional deals. This means you can get a good price on VPN service package from ibVPN that provides just the countries you need. Since those packages start at around $5.00, they are definitely on the inexpensive side of fence! The premium VPN package from ibVPN is not much more in terms of cost and offers all of their available servers, 2 simultaneous connections, ibDNS (new!), proxy, and torrent. It is an insanely loaded premium VPN for an extremely low price. All plans offer nice discounts if customers decide to purchase longer terms (3/6/12months available).
ibVPN offers PPTP, L2TP, and OpenVPN services. Each plan includes access to all three protocols, which is also a nice bonus because it means you get more secure services like L2TP and OpenVPN, but also have access to PPTP which works well with mobile devices (iPhone/iPad/Android). The PPTP and OpenVPN protocols utilize software from ibVPN, while L2TP does not require any software. The software is available for Windows and Mac, but a standard install of OpenVPN with the ibVPN certificates would suffice for Linux users. The software is fairly basic, but it does allow a choice of server, however it does not offer random IP addresses from the servers like some other software programs provided by other VPN services. As new servers and countries are added, the ibVPN software will update automatically. Unfortunately none of the plans or protocols offered at ibVPN support torrents or P2P, so definitely take that into consideration before purchasing. All packages and protocols do provide unlimited bandwidth though. Another upside is that ibVPN does not keep any logs whatsoever of their customers connections of activities.
ibVPN now offers mobile solutions of your iPhone/iPad and Android devices!
