SaferVPN country and server coverage

The company has deployed more than 700 servers in 36 different countries. All of the continents around the world is covered with one or more servers. And no matter where you are located, you will find a close server for you to get a better speed performance.

We are fully aware that managing hundreds of VPN servers is a big deal. Furthermore, we have great expectation from SaferVPN as they claim that they are the fastest on the market.

Let’s check our comprehensive worldwide speed test performance and let the numbers speak for themselves.

What is more noteworthy here is the connection usability. We were able to make use of our 25 Mbit connection with %95 capacity. In other words, when using SaferVPN, you will not recognize that your connection is being encrypted or slowed down.

Especially, if you are located in North America or Europe, SaferVPN will give you uncapped speed performance.

SaferVPN torrenting performance

Using a VPN service while downloading a torrent file has a critical importance. Almost in any country, torrenting is illegal and you have to hide your online identity.

By using a VPN service, you can simply hide your IP address and increase your online anonymity. However, sometimes it becomes intolerable if you are using a slow VPN server to download a torrent file. This is when fast and solid VPN providers come handy.

Please click on the image below to see it in a bigger size.

I found 990 MB torrent file and connected SaferVPN Netherland server. It took less than 10 minutes to download the file with my 25 Mbit connection and I was able to use the full capacity of my download speed.

SaferVPN passed the torrenting performance test with 10/10!

SaferVPN Popcorn time Experience – Is it fast enough?

When it comes to downloading a Popcorn time movie or a TV show, VPN providers cannot provide reliable download speed. It is either because the compatibility issues between VPN and the software or it take so much time to collect seed and start downloading the P2P file.

With SaferVPN, it took only 10-15 seconds to collect download seeds. Afterwards, the download speed hit up to 450+KB/seconds. This value is enough to help you watch HD or full HD shows even without lagging once.

SaferVPN NetFlix and BBC iPlayer experience

SaferVPN has a dedicated streaming server located in the USA. This server is being monitored by the tech team and regularly checked if it is working fine or not.

As for our own experience, the streaming server works fine. However, we did not like the streaming quality. When you are outside of the USA, it is a must to connect to USA VPN server to watch some USA only shows.

With SaferVPN, it is possible yet, the quality may not satisfy you.

Contrary to USA streaming server, SaferVPN UK server was pretty fast to help us watch BBC iPlayer abroad.

Our first try was a success and we had no streaming issue with the BBC iPlayer.

Pricing and refund policy

SaferVPN has three different plan: 1 Month, 1 Year and 2 Years. Each plan has same features yet different discount percentages.

SaferVPN – Download desktop software

At one point, we can regard SaferVPN software as an all in one solution. On the other hand, there are few bugs to be fixed.

The software is easy to install and it does not have any kind of compatible issue with any OS environment. You are covered if you are using Windows, Mac OS, Linux. Moreover, the service will help you connect to a VPN server through Google Chrome -a feature not many VPN service provider offer!

Software interface will welcome you with the login credentials. Once you are logged in, you will be promoted to server selection page. Here you can easily use basic features,

  • Auto select server,
  • Search bar for faster reach out,
  • Favorites for faster server browsing.

Moving to the setting menu…

SaferVPN has core features a VPN provider must have.

  • Protocol options,
  • Wifi security options,
  • Kill Switch to shut down online activities when dropped out of VPN connection.

While these features look so appealing, there is a big bug in the software. If you happen to select the VPN protocol manually, you won’t be able to connect any VPN server.

At some point, this change is not necessary. However, there would be some specific scenarios where people might need a specific protocol. Looking forward to seeing this bug fixed soon.

SaferVPN for mobile devices

So far, this app is the easiest VPN mobile app we have ever used. Once you install the iOS or Android version, a redirect automation will help you get used to the app in few steps.

Just like the PC software, neat server selection menu and search bar will appear on the left side of the app. Browsing and connecting to desired VPN server is only two taps away from your fingers.

Once you are connected to VPN, you will be able to see the chosen country as well as the dedicated IP address assigned to you.

In the settings menu, there is not much we can play around. Like many other VPN providers, SaferVPN offers Wi-Fi security option. Moreover, for faster performance and enchanted security, you may choose the IKev2 protocol.

For daily usage, default (Automatic) setting is suggested!

Security protocols

For the PC software, there are four protocols available: OpenVPN, IKev2, PPTP, L2TP. If your priority is to use the server on mobile, you can make use of OpenVPN and IKev2 only.

  • IKev2: Faster and more secure when compared to PPTP.
  • OpenVPN: This protocol is a combination of performance and maximum security.
  • L2TP: This has a greater encryption but it offers less performance.
  • PPTP: Windows-based basic encryption. less secure, yet, faster.

You can switch between any protocol you like. Make sure that each protocol will give you different speed performance. If you are not happy with the speed, you may always choose “Automatic”.

Note: SaferVPN fails to connect to a specific VPN server when you switch from “Automatic” protocol selection to another one.

We will delete this one once the company updates their software.

Is SaferVPN working properly?

Yes, it is!

SaferVPN has proved to be working for any VPN required platform:

  • Accessing restricted content,
  • Connection encryption,
  • Netflix and BBC iPlayer streaming abroad,
  • Outstanding Popcorn time and torrenting performance,
  • User-friendly mobile apps and more…

There is one and the only issue with SaferVPN, we cannot switch from “Automatic” protocol to another one. Other than this, there is no issue!

Customer support

SaferVPN has three different support platform: knowledgebase, live chat, and ticket system.

The knowledgebase covers all troubleshooting, FAQ, billing, features, and account related topics. In case you cannot find what you are looking for, simply open a ticket. If the case is urgent, you can always contact to live chat team.
