I tried Ivacy, won’t try them again. I don’t have anything positive to say about my experience with them. They are unresponsive, greedy and their servers are slow. Overall, a bad experience. I’ve read that they don’t pay their refunds, I think I’m lucky, I got a refund. Won’t recommend them. There are plenty of better providers out there, read the reviews on this site for example and make a different choice. Ivacy isn’t for me, it probably isn’t for anyone. Stay away from them to keep your brain cells!
With Netflix, the problem is that they are improving on detecting VPNs and blocking them. But there is this gap, that if your VPN provider regularly creates new servers, that are unknown to Netflix, you will have a possibility to access the geo-blocked content. I found NordVPN to be the best fit because I can pick the newest servers myself and they are always creating new ones. I did talk with NordVPNs customer support about the fuzz going around Netflix blocking VPNs. They assured me that new servers are the key to bypass the restrictions. Also, this feature is handy when one server is full of users, and the speed gets a bit slow. From my personal experience, I can say, that Netflix US/AU worked great and I could watch all the shows, that were primarily blocked because of my location.
Ivacy's mode for distribution on iPhone is similar to its Android strategy. Again, it offers a free version called Ivacy Lite and the main app called simply Ivacy VPN. We haven't had the chance to test either version, but we look forward to seeing how it compares with other iPhone VPN apps. I'll update this review once we get one of these apps into the lab.
Someone turns their computer into a network access point, and gives is a real-enough sounding name (often imitating popular, well-known ones like “T-Mobile” for instance). When you connect, you’re actually connecting through their computer. And they now will gain access to all of the information you used to login, as well as your browsing activity.
