NoodleVPN overview

NoodleVPN is a VPN service provider that does a lot of things right - it has strong privacy and encryption, has fast server speed and unlimited download. NoodleVPN offers more than 80 servers in about 30 countries. The country locations include USA, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Canada, Australia and more. While there could be more locations, the current number is enough to browse safely and access some of the geographically-locked or restricted content. Moreover, the server speed was fast no matter which server you connected to and torrenting/P2P activity is allowed, though only on certain European servers.

NoodleVPN is available on Windows, Mac, Linux as well as Android and iOS. The setup process is quick and easy. Furthermore, 5 simultaneous connections are allowed per license, which will be more than enough to cover all of your favorite devices.

Ikev2, PPTP, IPSec, OpenVPN with a strong AES-256 encryption type is used for NoodleVPN. While the Privacy Policy was not found, on the website it is written that because of the special equipment NoodleVPN does not store any data or Internet activity logs and the only thing they know is username and user email address.

There are multiple pricing plans that NoodleVPN offers and they might seem confusing for basic users. There’s a dedicated VPN/ IP plan and its pricing depends on the static location you choose (varies from $7.50 to $11.00/per month). There is also a static VPN pricing plan with multiple time periods (1 month is $5.00, 3 months is $14.00, 6 months - $26.00, 1 year - $47.00, 2 years - $60.00). Furthermore, there’s a Cisco and OpenVPN plan ($3.90/month or $10.00 for 3 months). A free account is included, but it has 250 MB bandwidth limit, 30 hour period limit and some other restrictions as well. There are slight differences in the pricing plans, but all of them offer up to 5 device usage, unlimited switching and P2P/ torrenting is allowed on European servers. Payment methods include BitCoin, PayPal, Webmoney and a few others. However, there is no money-back guarantee offered and it’s is probably one of the biggest NoodleVPN’s flaws. While there is a free trial, it still would be nice to be able to get a refund.

Customer support works 24/7 on all days and the options to contact support is an email form and a ticket system. NoodleVPN also has a blog with manual setup guides for different platforms as well as a knowledgebase. While it is good there’s a knowledgebase in general, there are only a few articles included. Also, there is no live chat for users to get answers quickly.

NoodleVPN offers great VPN services - server speed is fast, encryption is great and there is a no-logs policy. On the other hand, NoodleVPN has its flaws: confusing pricing plans with different timing periods, no live chat and quite limited customer support. Moreover, there is no money back guarantee, which might scare some users off. While it has a lot of potential, NoodleVPN needs some improvements.
