Network

850+ VPN servers in 340+ locations in 190+ countries around the world.

Protocol & Encryption

For most devices and operating systems, the following VPN protocols are available:

  • OpenVPN-UDP (also called “Auto-Path”). Default protocol when using HMA! OpenVPN-TCP
  • PPTP. Alternative protocol in Windows and Mac OS X HMA!
  • L2TP. An alternative to OpenVPN+PPTP, to be used by creating a manual connection.

OpenVPN-based connections generally require you to install a client application (e.g. OpenVPN GUI, Tunnelblick), while PPTP and L2TP connections are configured in and established by your device/operating system.

Ease of Use

Friendly and fun user interface. Definitely good for beginners.

Pricing and Refund

It is more expensive version than other VPN services available on the market. The price per month is $11.52 on a monthly basis vs. Private Internet Access $6.95 or NordVPN at $5.75. If you are not happy with the service, HMA! will issue a full refund if you cancel within 30 days. Not bad.

Cons

Logs some of the users’ data.

Conclusion

Awesome user interface and good speed test results make it a good VPN choice for the beginners. However, it is expensive, offers only 2 devices per account and logs users activity! No advanced features nor ad blocking.
