The full VPN network of Getflix comes with different protection protocols that offer different layers of protection. The PPTP offers a 128 bit encryption which could work on all operating systems known, both in the PC and mobile. The next is the L2TP Protocol which works best on Android, Mac, Linux, and Windows (256 bit encryption). SSTP protocol is best for Windows and offers 256 bit encryption as well. There is also the OpenVPN UDP protocol with 256 bit encryption and all operating systems support it, it gives great security and offers the best speed amongst all of them.

When choosing the protocol to use, the best is the OpenVPN UDP protocol as it is considered to be the strongest one. Getflix does not log, analyze, store or inspect what you do, as it does not track your Internet activity.

There is the 1 month plan which is $4.95, the 3 month plan is $12.95 ($4.32/month) and the 6 months plan is $22.95 ($3.83/month). There is also a 1 year plan for $39.90 ($3.33/month) as well as a 2 year plan, which is $54.90 ($2.3/month). it can be said that the 2 year plan is relatively cheap, but not everyone would like to commit to a VPN for two years.
