In terms of protocols, the best and hugely secure OpenVPN is offered and is powered by a strong SSL encryption (256 bit). Apart from the OpenVPN, there are other protocols like IKEv2, L2TP, SSTP and PPTP to choose from.

The promise that Ivacy makes to its clients is that there is no monitoring of their activities, so no logs are kept. Because of the lack of any stored data sessions, it can’t connect any particular activity to any of the users. So, your life on the web with ivacy is secure. Another interesting fact is that if a user account is not active for 12 months, it is removed from Ivacy's network.

This is to say that it works on both mobile and PC devices and platforms. You can set it up on routers, smart TVs as well as gaming consoles. However, it has been discovered that its connection on mobile is not as strong as the one offered by desktop clients.

The turning point here is the fact that this VPN could be used on other unorthodox devices like the Kodi, Roku, your wireless Router, Xbox and PS4 networks, your Raspberry Pi, and even on your Smart TV.
