What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Speed: Despite promising better speeds with a premium account, iTop failed to deliver fast speeds, losing about 80 percent of our raw network speed.
  • Vague encryption and VPN protocol standards: We wouldn’t recommend iTop to advanced VPN users who want full control over their encryption and VPN protocols, as iTop is vague about the standards and protocols it uses.
  • Poor app experience: The desktop and smartphone apps are hard to use and laggy. Moreover, if you have a free account, expect to see lots of ads and ad banners.

Bottom Line

The iTop VPN experience is a mix of good and bad. On one hand, it’s an affordable VPN that unblocks georestricted content and hides IP addresses well. On the other hand, it doesn’t offer the best performance and app experience. It significantly slowed down our internet speed and was silent about the actual security standards and protocols it uses to secure our network.
