What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Peer-to-peer VPN: Using UrbanVPN makes your device a node of its peer-to-peer VPN network, opening up your network to possible hacking.
  • IP address logging: When connected to UrbanVPN, the VPN records your IP address, and other users might be able to see your IP address too.
  • Extensive data logging: UrbanVPN logs websites you visit, ads you click on, and more while connected to its network.

Bottom Line

While a completely free VPN sounds nice, UrbanVPN is not a good VPN if your goal is to protect your privacy. It may be good for unblocking streaming libraries outside your region, but it lacks security features, and the fact that it logs IP addresses is a red flag.
