What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Five Eyes: FastVPN is owned and operated in the United States, a government that does not shy away from online spying – and sharing what it finds with other governments.
  • Questionable permissions: FastVPN asked permission to access our apps and resources, even when we’re offline.
  • 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.
