The major focus of the Blockless VPN is to ensure that the most popular streaming services are accessible and that all the blocked websites and aps are completely unblocked. However, when it comes to safety and security, Blockless is a bit behind. But this is not to say that it does not offer encryption and protection at all. It works on the PPTP protocol, and the level of protection you will have is decent.

Their privacy policy is not so different from other VPN companies. Blockless ensures that they keep no logs of user activities, however, being located in Canada the company might be subjected to the Five Eyes group (an alliance between countries that collect, analyze and share information). So, knowing this, it is up to users to choose whether they will be using Blockless VPN.

  • No-logs policy
  • Only one protocol
  • Based in Canada
Privacy - Conclusions
Blockless works with PPTP protocol only, but they do not keep any user activity logs.
