Review: Hidester VPN

Why should you need a VPN?

Cybercriminals, Hackers, spies, government, overeager retailers and even internet service providers can watch what you do online but only if we let them.

So in this review i tested the VPN service of “Hidester VPN” for a couple of days, I used my iPhone to test and i must say i like the speed of the network and the simplicity of the client. I tried to reach out to some blocked sites, and these are working fine.

Hidester VPN is registered in Hong Kong, as this country does not have any data retention law, and therefore a complete no log VPN service could be legally operated from there. Some key points on Hidester VPN are:

  • High Speed VPN
  • Zero Logging

At the moment of writing they have 45 servers in 41 locations available for you.
