Privacy
6.9

VPN One Click does not keep logs or any information about your online activity. Two security protocols are offered, but you are never sure which one is used because there doesn’t seem to be a button to switch them. This might be because protocols changes automatically depending on a server location you are connected to, but it would be nice if you knew what protocol is being used at the moment.

The offered protocols are PPTP (128-bit) and L2TP/IPSec (256-bit). The biggest drawback is that there is no OpenVPN protocol option, which is considered to be the fastest and most secure out there.

Privacy - highlights
  • No-logs policy
  • No OpenVPN
Privacy - Conclusions
There is no information on which protocol is used on certain servers.
Features

The setup is easy - you just download the software from their website and install it. It’s also extremely easy to use. If you want to change the server location - just click on a country’s flag that you want to connect to. VPN One Click offers servers in 29 countries that are dispersed all around the globe. There is no data cap or traffic limit, even when using the free or the trial version. However, only one device can be used per one account. So if you want to, for example, get VPN One Click on your mobile, you will have to buy another plan.

The speed is fast - it barely slows down when you’re using VPN services. Moreover, P2P and torrenting is allowed, which is great for heavy torrent users and those wanting to share files anonymously. It’s worth to mention that while the website looks stylish, the software does not. VPN One Click should think about changing the design of their software and its UI.

Features - highlights
  • P2P/Torrenting allowed
  • One simultaneous connection
Features - Conclusions
While VPN One Click has fast server speed, only one simultaneous connection per account is allowed.
Apps
7.2

VPN One Click covers pretty much every platform you’d need: Windows, iOS, Android and Mac systems. They also offer services for a variety of other systems: Linux, consoles, Amazon Kindle and more. There should be no problem with VPN One Click working on all major platforms, but as it was mentioned before, you may need multiple accounts to cover all of your devices.

Apps - highlights
  • Supports all major platforms
Apps - Conclusions
VPN One Click has a wide range of supported devices and operating systems.
Support
6.5

VPN One Click has a lot of different support options (except phone support) available. There’s a 24/7 live chat, email ticketing system and a FAQ page. Although there are many support options, most of them are superficial. The FAQ page section only has the most common questions answered and lacks troubleshooting, how-to’s or setup guides. The chat will take you to another page where you’ll have to select the problem you’re facing and will be offered a few solutions. If nothing works, then you’ll be taken to a page with the ability to contact the support directly.

A knowledge base with more information and the inclusion of different setup guides would be appreciated. Though they have a blog with information about VPNs and how to choose the best one, there are only about a dozen of articles uploaded there.

Support - highlights
  • 24/7 live chat
Support - Conclusions
Various support options are available and VPN One Click has a 24/7 live chat.
Value for money
7.3

VPN One Click offers 6 plans. The pricing plans depend on the OS you’re using rather than being time-based. Also, there is an unlimited free version with no data cap, but you can only use servers that are located in Europe. This might be enough for some users, but others who’d want to access US-based websites will have to buy VPN One Click’s services. You can always download the trial version for 7 days, which doesn’t limit the accessible server locations.

Payment methods include PayPal, BitCoin, iTunes and all major credit cards like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. The BitCoin option is the most secure and helps to maintain anonymity throughout the payment process. Strangely, no money-back guarantees were mentioned on their webpage. So, we suggest first trying out their services and asking someone from the support team about their refund policy. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Value for money - highlights
  • 7-day free trial
Value for money - Conclusions
The pricing plans depen on user operating systems. However, there is no information on refund policy.
