- 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.

Friendly and fun user interface. Definitely good for beginners.
PRICING & REFUND
It is a more expensive version than other VPN services available on the market. The price per month is $11.99 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. The recent offer includes 7-day free trial, however, there is no statement on how long it’s going to be offered.
Logs some of the users’ data.
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 adblocking.
