What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Questionable permissions: FastVPN asked permission to access our apps and resources, even when we’re offline.
  • No split tunneling: None of the FastVPN apps offer split tunneling, which is an essential VPN feature for multitaskers.
  • High latency and slower speeds on offshore servers: When we connected to servers farther away from us, we started seeing significant drops in speed and latency.

Bottom Line

FastVPN is a fast VPN with decent security and privacy features. It’s not a top-tier VPN by any means, but its affordable pricing makes it a good option for students and VPN buyers on a budget.
