What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Expensive monthly plans: $6.50 per month for one whole year may sound cheap for a VPN, but other options offer yearly plans as low as $4.99 per month.
  • Not very user-friendly: While we like that the Avira mobile apps provide access to multiple tools, we found the apps difficult to navigate because of that.
  • Limited server locations: With servers in only 38 countries, Avira Phantom doesn’t provide much flexibility when it comes to choosing IP address locations.

Bottom Line

Avira is an antivirus expert, and it shows. While Avira VPN is generally a good VPN to use, it’s far from perfect. The user experience needs improvement, and so does the server network. On the bright side, though, we think it’s a great smartphone VPN, especially with the cheap mobile plan and Avira’s free antivirus software for smartphones.
