So far so good!

I’ve been up and running on Digital Ocean’s droplet for 2 weeks now and everything is very smooth so far and super fast from China. I’m having some problems on my windows computer that appear to be isolated to my network drivers. However both Mac and iOS apps appear to be working fine.

This is definitely a necessity when doing business in China and you have more control over who is watching your data because you never know if the VPN providers are logging your actions.

Great but need some improvements

This is the most powerful VPN I've ever used. But it has issues with FTPs and also with some Apps like Instagram. Sometimes prevents receiving Push Notifications most from WhatsApp.

Great VPN

Really clean setup and easy to use. Much better than trusting any of the myriad VPN companies out there.

Invaluable if you’re a journalist or activist, but it’s still great if you’re just looking to protect yourself on coffee shop WiFi.
