Perfect Privacy has high-speed servers, extremely strong encryption as well as multiple protocols to choose from, but its server location number and expensive plans leave a lot to be desired.

Perfect Privacy stands as one of the VPN providers that offers a high number of various protocols. They offer OpenVPN that the majority of the users prefer. But they also have protocols like Socks5, Squid, PPTP and IPSec for people who would prefer them. Moreover, the PPTP protocol, has a MPPE-128-bit using the DC4 cryptographic algorithm. The OpenVPN works with the AES 256-bit encryption.

Perfect Privacy offers the configurable port forwarding feature as well as unlimited speed. Moreover, subscribers will not have to worry about data because they offer unlimited bandwidth too. The network client is also designed in such a way that it could easily be used by all subscribers. It is indeed user-friendly in all manners. There is a feature that makes it easy for users to toggle between IPSEC and OpenVPN protocols and advanced users will also enjoy SSH and proxies.

  • No-logs policy
Privacy - Conclusions
Perfect Privacy not only has a variety of protocols to choose from and strong encryption, they also do not keep logs of users' activities.
Features
7.5

Perfect Privacy VPN service provider offers no bandwidth or speed limit and states that it has over 600 servers in 23 countries. However, the available country number is not that high and some users might find it lacking, especially if they’re buying a VPN to access geographically-blocked websites. This service provider offers unlimited simultaneous connections, which should be great for those using multiple devices.

Some of the things you will definitely enjoy here include the DNS leak protection feature. Moreover, there is an ability to cascade multiple VPN servers, Stealth VPN technology as well as an integrated Firewall protection. Also, P2P/Torrenting is allowed, but only on specific servers (it is best to avoid the US ones).

Features - highlights
  • DNS leak check
  • Configurable port forwarding
Features - Conclusions
Perfect Privacy offers servers in 23 cities. Moreover, it has advanced features like SSH and proxies, IPv6 Support, DNS leak check, and unlimited bandwidth and speed.

Customer support is an area we are not happy with. How can a firm offer such amazing services when it comes to protection and encryption and yet is lagging behind when it comes to the support? Now, they offer support to customers through email. They also use forums where people ask questions ad get clarifications. There is also a TeamViewer system that Perfect Privacy uses.

All of these systems are clearly not available 24/7/365 for their clients. Also, the biggest disappointment here is that there is no live chat.

Support - highlights
  • Multiple support options
  • No live chat
  • No 24x7x365 support
Support - Conclusions
While there are 3 ways to reach customer support, they do not work 24/7/365 and live chat is not an available option.
Value for money
5.8

One of Perfect Privacy's major problems is that their plans are very expensive. They offer multiple various length plans, but still, they costa bit too much. The 1 month is $15.83, the 3 months plan is $14.08/month, the 6 months plan costs $12.99 per month. Moreover, the 1 year plan will cost you $12.22/month and the 2 year plan is $10.50 per month.

They offer their services through the most common payment methods, so it is very easy for people to pay for their subscription. Subscribers can pay with MasterCard, UnionPay, Amex, and Visa. Some other methods that work here are Mobiamo and PayPal. They also accept payments with Bitcoin as well more payment methods. Perfect Privacy offers a 7-day money back guarantee.

Value for money - highlights
  • Multiple payment methods
  • Multiple subscription plans
  • Plans are expensive
Value for money - Conclusions
There are many payment methods and subscription plans, but the pricing plans are very expensive even if you get a discount.
