    I've been happy with the service thus far. The Mac beta app is coming along. While the app lacks the visual refinement of most Mac apps, it works and that's all I really care about.

    My only major suggestion...Please add servers in San Francisco!

    I think PP is the best in many aspects. But there should be more tutorials for Not-an-expert users. Along with Blog should be having information about Protocols and VPN technologies. In terms of Service, more server locations needed to beat other VPNs in market. All platforms Apps should have killswitch and firewall functions if possible. There are newer encryption methods emerging based on quantum computing , may be employed.

    Price reduction is required. offer some sale or discount. VPN over TOR should be added. Mullvad is offering some good offerings which can be added to PP also. Live chat support should be added. Customer base can be increased by offering free trial.

    @BruceWayne I think you're with the wrong VPN provider. Why you just don't go to Mullvad if they are so much better?

    If your browser have localization enabled, then using a VPN is useless.
    PP is fine and work as intended for everyone, they can't protect you from your own mistakes.

    I wasn't saying that Mullvad is better. Btw it's (page) for suggestions and not for bringing other down. Learn some manners.

    The problem is, that every vpn provider doesnt admit the fact that u have to do deep dive in with privacy a little bit ifuf want to go below the radar level of anonymity/privacy.

    Of couse they offer some howtos after u regstistered. But the normal user just as carlia doesnt want to study things like that.
    But this is the Business

    I am a new user, I only used it for a couple of days, but was enough to make an idea.

    I love the features, I chosen PP instead of different VPNs, mostly for the Traffic filter, but got more then that.
    I appreciate the cascade VPN and the Neuro Routing.

    Your Mac app is not the most intuitive and easy to use.
    You do not have a two factor authentication on the account and I can't set my own password. (TFA to log in the members area, with what ever password you set, and a different user and password for VPN authentication)

    In the end I think it is not the right time for me with PP, the speed is too low, when you will have better speed I will be back.
    I am connecting from Spain, where you do not have a server, I am sure that affects the speed, but I can't work with this speed, I can barely get above 40 mb / s, and I have a 500mb fiber connection installed.

    I will get one more year from a faster VPN and try again your services in one year.
    I would definitely miss all your features, but the speed is an important factor for me.

    I have been very happy with PP so far. But the last few weeks I am facing many problems regarding TrackStop effectiveness and blacklisted IPs. So you pay for something you do not get. For one of the most expensive VPN on the market it not acceptable.

    Unfortunately the customer service - depends who you are talking to - is not very customer centric. And some people just do not like when you bring problems on the table. It is not anymore what it's used to be.

    Hi Pete,

    thanks for your honest opinion. We always like to hear some feedback so we can constantly improve Perfect Privacy VPN.

    In your case, we've had an ongoing conversation via email and we figured out that you experienced those problems on one server only. We are currently replacing that server based on your observations. That will likely not only fix your TrackStop problems but also have a positive effect on connection speed and accessibility for all users.

    I remember our communication as being kind and target-aimed. Since I didn't know what may offended you, I investigated a little and found a reply from us to an independent issue (temporary server downtime). Despite being accurate, I agree it may have been a little harsh. I'm sorry if we stepped on your toes. I assure you that we always appreciate user's feedback and do everything that's in our power to fix problems and realize improvement suggestions - even if we sometimes don't point that out. In that downtime case, we already found the reason for that and fixed it a few days ago.

    Great news! A few hours ago, we got a new server in Madrid, Spain. Have a look at our server status page:

    @Nimt Bort If your account ran out and you'd like to test the speed, you're welcome to ask for a test period by sending a mail to our support team.
