What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Short risk-free trial: You can request a refund if Hidester isn’t working to your expectations, but depending on your plan, you can do so only within three to seven days of buying a subscription. Others offer 30- to 60-day money-back guarantees.
  • Slow speed: Hidester’s speed was disappointing, as it decreased our internet speed by more than 40-percent in all but one of the tests we conducted.
  • Weak unblocking ability: Hidester isn’t the best choice for unblocking geo-restricted content. It failed to clear Netflix’s VPN blocks several times.

Bottom Line

There are things we loved about Hidester, and things we thought could be improved. Overall, it’s an affordable VPN for everyday use. It’s not very fast, but it has a good network of servers and the connections are secure. Just make sure you like it before springing for an annual subscription.
