Privacy
8.1

When it comes to encryption protocols, they make use of the 256-bit AES/CBC for OpenVPN and SoftEther protocols. This has the SHA-512 and the 4096-bit RSA as cipher/hash/control keys too. Moreover, new features and encryption systems are developed by the day. The latest three are the XOR encryption system, the ECC system and the Serpent feature. So, it can be said that Proxy.sh takes its privacy very seriously.

Your activities on the servers provided by Proxy.sh will not be logged, so no one will get hold of what you have been doing online. This is because everything is run from a RAM and that is to ensure that once there is a shutdown, all of the user data will be erased. To maintain this privacy, they do not even process payments for their services. They have anonymous tokens offered by third parties on their behalf.

Privacy - highlights
  • Services are run from RAM
  • Use of anonymous tokens
  • Only one protocol
Privacy - Conclusions
Proxy.sh offers only the OpenVPN protocol, but it has some of the most advanced encryption systems.

It does not only support connection from these traditional operating systems which also includes their mobile versions. You can connect and use their network for 3G, 4G and the LTE connections of all the available mobile carriers.

  • 3G, 4G and the LTE connections

Support
6.3

While their support is 24/7365, it is done with only the ticket system. Here, you have to initiate a ticket and will be guaranteed a reply within 72 hours after initiating the ticket. If you are lucky, you can have your response in 4 hours, but the average is about 12 hours.

While livechat is the most effective form of support and customer care due to the instant response, they do not offer it. So, you can’t chat with an online representative if you have a problem with your account or connection.

Support - highlights
  • Translation feature
  • No 24/7/365 support
  • No live chat
Support - Conclusions
Customer support is Proxy.sh's biggest flaw, as it offers only a ticket system, no live chat and no 24/7 support.
