IVPN is, for our money, one of the best VPNs on the market in terms of security and privacy. The company’s mission statement heavily emphasizes privacy and its no-logs policy has been verified by independent audit. On top of that, the company publishes the results of other independent audits of its network infrastructure and data security regularly, in an effort to provide more transparency to its customer base.
IVPN offers a hardcore Anti-Tracker Mode, designed to block two of the larger data trackers in the world: Facebook and Google. This mode works very well, almost too well in certain instances. If Google is your primary search engine, for example, you will not be able to use it with Anti-Tracker Mode enabled. However, if your primary goal is to stop these large companies from monetizing your data, this mode can be an excellent tool in your kit.
IVPN’s account ID system stands out among its competitors, only being shared by Mullvad VPN. This system generates a unique ID without taking in any user data. This makes IVPN’s account system an empty vault: in the event of a data breach, there is no user data for hackers to steal.
However, this system can be confusing to less tech-savvy users and for those looking for a more traditional account management system, IVPN does offer multifactor authentication (MFA).
