Hide.Me Review

Hide.me is a VPN service provider located in Malaysia. It boasts its stellar privacy policy without any logs being kept whatsoever and this is what has intrigued us toward completing a thorough and fully analytic Hide.me review. After all, VPN is all about privacy and anonymity; so, celebrating total anonymity and the lack of any traces leaving back to us online is always a great thing!

We have tried their services and we have concluded as to their overall value. Below, you are going to see what we have come up with in terms of speed and effectiveness, protection and customer service. These are all fundamental aspects to consider, prior to choosing whether or not a VPN service provider does the trick for you and suits your needs without any doubts. Let’s launch our review, shall we?

Speed

We have tested Hide.me VPN and we have found it to be truly fast. Its impressive speed, though, does not cover the Free Plan. In this case, the speed depends on what the premium customers do at the time. If there is congestion and heavy traffic there, you can expect substantially slow speed to the Free Plan.

Given the fact that most Internet users benefit from the Free Plan in the form of a trial, this is not something to frown upon. In both Plus and Premium Plans, the speed has been more than satisfactory to all OS and devices (we have tried out Windows and Mac OS, tablet and Android, as well as iPhone). There also is a Hide.me free proxy offered by the company, that’s fast too.

Price

Hide.Me Pricing
Continuing on with our Hide.me VPN review, there are three different plans for you to choose from. This is cool, as different customers have got different needs to be covered. First of all, you get a Free Plan that is limited to servers in two locations (Netherlands and Canada), 2GB data transfer and no OpenVPN involved.

Plus Plan starts at $10.00 per month if you buy the monthly subscription; $6.67 per month is offered at the semi-annual subscription and finally $5.42 per month is provided to those who select the annual subscription. There is a 14-day full money refund guarantee offered, as well. The site is SSL secured and so you can complete your purchases without any worries.

Protocols

PPTP, L2TP, IPsec (IKEv1 and the brand new IKEv2), OpenVPN, SOCKS are all supported protocols by Hide.me with up to AES-256 encryption. Of course, when you use the Free Plan there is no option for you to enable OpenVPN protocol. However, advanced security protocols are offered to the premium subscribers of Hide.me VPN.

Customer Support

Next on our Hide.me review, we are about to cover the customer support quality and diversity. First of all, there is an easy setup guide provided to different OS and devices here. You can choose either manual configuration or the recommended downloads for automatic updates and connection. The community of Hide.me VPN includes a detailed forum and tutorials for you to better understand the use and benefits of VPN.

Additionally, for other requests and inquiries you can submit a request 24/7. You can even attach files that are relevant to your request and send them over to the tech support to see. Their social media activity is also impressive and can help you out, in case you need something on the spot. Nevertheless, there is no phone number or direct email for you to reach out to and there have been some minor complaints about slow turnaround of requests.

Servers

Hide.Me Servers
The servers of Hide.me VPN are based on 29 locations, gradually expanding to new places in the world. They hand-pick the servers and this is the main reason why the expansion does not happen more swiftly. As you can see at the network of the VPN, there are servers all over the world. It is worth mentioning once more than the servers do not keep any logs or IP addresses. Indicatively, there are servers in Canada and USA, Austria and France, Germany and Iceland, Romania and UK, Australia and Hong Kong, Turkey and Singapore.

Compatibility

Hide.Me Client
There is great and complete compatibility of Hide.me VPN with all OS and devices. Windows (8, 7, Vista and XP) and Mac OS X, iOS (iPad and iPhone), Linux (Ubuntu) and Android, Windows Phone 8.1 and BlackBerry can benefit from the easy setup guide provided on the official site of Hide.me VPN. There are also instructions for routers.

Payment Options

Many Internet users lose their sleep over the best payment method that they can use, in order to remain anonymous and lay low when it comes to VPN billing. As to the payment options of Hide.me VPN, there is true versatility for you: more than 80 payment options are acceptable, including PayPal and Visa, MasterCard and American Express, Bitcoin and Ukash, Sofort and CashU.

Bottom Line

At the end of our Hide.Me VPN thorough review, it is high time we concluded as to what has impressed us the most and what has appalled us (if any). It goes without even questioning that Hide.me VPN is a great solution that can meet the needs of all Internet users (whether or not they have prior experience of using VPN). Their privacy policy is straightforward and involves no logs kept, which should be the cornerstone of every single VPN service provider.

Anonymity and privacy ought not to be compromised in any way. In addition, the advanced encryption and the use of up to five simultaneous devices (for the Premium Plan) are great bonuses to consider. There are multiple payment options for everyone to benefit from, as well as easy and simple guides for smooth installation and operation of the VPN. On the downside, the price is not so affordable for the Premium Plan and especially in monthly subscriptions.

The Free Plan offered does not offer the same quality features as the other plans, which can mislead several users. Overall, Hide.me VPN is suitable for everyone who wishes to remain anonymous while surfing the web and unblocking geo-restricted websites. With the commitment of the constant servers’ growth of the VPN network and given the benefits that it provides, we would recommend Hide.me VPN to all.
