StrongVPN Review

Updated Feb 11, 2021

StrongVPN got its start in 1994 selling PCs. The Los Angeles-based company transitioned to selling internet services and eventually entered the VPN market. StrongVPN’s competitive prices and encryption standards make it worth consideration.

 

The Bottom Line

StrongVPN offers competitive service at a low price. Compared to other top providers in the industry, StrongVPN offers its services at a lower price for the annual plan. It also has high-end encryption with a no-logging policy. Finally, unlike many competitors, StrongVPN offers phone customer support so you can talk to a real person.

That said, StrongVPN also comes with some downsides. Users have complained of slower speeds, especially when using a server outside the U.S. Additionally, it doesn’t have as many servers as its competitors. Its 950+ servers might sound like a lot, but it pales in comparison to competitors that offer thousands.

Pros

  • Competitive price
  • No logging
  • High-end encryption
  • Phone customer support

Cons

  • Slower speeds
  • Fewer servers than many competitors

Privacy

StrongVPN uses a variety of different protocols to secure your connection and keep your information private. When you sign up, you’ll be able to select the right protocol for you based on your device type and your individual needs.

StrongVPN uses WireGuard as its next-generation encryption. It offers the most security of any other available and is available for macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android. With AES 256-bit encryption, it meets the gold standard of online security.

StrongVPN also protects its users’ data through its no-logging policy. Granted, it’s hard to independently verify no-logging policies — a wrinkle inherent in reviewing VPN providers. But like every major provider, StrongVPN says it doesn’t track, collect, or share any of your data. StrongVPN also uses a kill switch that will immediately cut internet access if your connection is lost.

Other features

950+ servers in 35 countries

StrongVPN has 950 servers in 35 countries, meaning you have plenty to choose from. While it’s definitely not the most of any VPN service, the company’s “Best available location” feature makes it stand out.

 

Use on 12 devices

Most VPN services will let you use a few devices at once. StrongVPN really stands out by allowing you to use up to 12 at the same time.

 

24/7 customer support

StrongVPN gets positive reviews for its customer service. It has 24/7 chat support. And unlike many of its competitors, it offers phone support so you can talk to a person.
