    How about instead of trying new shit you guys fix your god damn ID protection so your users info isn't shown on IP lookups?

    I`ll try. A question: how frequently it changes the IP for a user?

    Any chance to make that automatically on each 10 minutes ex.? As a SEO tools user I can recommend that and will assure You that it will be crucial for all the SEO users.


    I`ve disconnected and reconnected manually - still same IP.

    It would be more cost effective to rent proxies, This is a VPN service, it is not designed to be used to get tons of IP's

    The benefits of a VPN have to do with privacy, and encrypting your connection so that your information cannot be stolen

    It is also useful for people in countries where certain services are blocked such as Hulu or Netflix for non us users.

    Finally it is wonderful for people in oppressive countries with censorship to be able to use the internet how they see fit, without the fear of snooping eyes seeing what they are doing.

    :) I know pretty well what`s VPN and I wanted to show You an important perspective of its use. Me and a lot of people, especially in that forum are using VPNs for our SEO tasks and we have from a long time VPN opportunities designed for such users. Posting Your proposition here is enough to conclude that You`re targeting as well people with such needs. So I wanted to help You for improving the service. Beyond of that a single proxy costs $1- $2 monthly and I can`t imagine a reason for someone who just need to access "Hulu or Netflix", or "people in oppressive countries" to pay $8 for that. Moreover they have a lot of totally free solutions such as TorBrowser ex., so Good Luck with sales.

    Can we select our preferred country? Or the IP is auto assigned?

    EDIT: Just saw the IP's are from US only.

    i had used this fee VPN service...quite late in posting a review.

    The speed was awesome!

    didnt experience any disconnections or issues when it was on!

    plus the support was terrific, when i needed to get started configuring the software!

    made quite a few successful fiverr accounts, though the locations of those are shown as 'kirabati'

    NO Idea why!

    Thank you for this giveaway!
