Malaysia-based FinchVPN lets you surf the web anonymously, access restricted websites and more. It has some of the cheapest pricing plans available as well as a good free plan for users not wanting to pay for VPN services. On the other hand, server locations are quite limited and FinchVPN does not offer the greatest security. Nevertheless, it will be a good VPN provider for users who have the most basic needs.
FinchVPN offers some very cheap plans, but has its own disadvantages.
Encryption used by FinchVPN is BlowFish 128-bit. BlowFish is a fast encryption type, but it does not offer the highest security. Still, it is quite decent and should protect your traffic.
FinchVPN has a weak encryption and collects connection data as well IP addresses.
FinchVPN has up to 40 servers in about 16 countries. The majority of servers of servers are located in the Netherlands and the US. FinchVPN also encrypts your web traffic.
P2P and torrenting are only allowed on some servers, most of which are located in the Netherlands. FinchVPN’s speed was slow to medium, so pretty mediocre when compared to other VPN providers. However, only one simultaneous connection is allowed, so if you want more device coverage, you might need to create multiple accounts for that.
