SaferVPN focuses on making security a priority. With 31 locations and unlimited server swapping it is probably better for those concerned with privacy rather than just avoiding blocks. As with most VPN the offer is 30 days money back guarantee rather than just a free trial where you are billed after the free trial period.

Safer VPN Server locations

United Kingdom (Streaming)
United States (East)

Middle East & Africa
Is SaferVPN Free
There is no permanent free option for SaferVPN. There is a 24 hour complete access free option. However When tested the data limits meant it only lasted about 5 minutes, very deceptive with the free trial offer.
Is Safer VPN Legal
Yes, most VPNs you come across are completely legal. The reason for this is they serve many legitimate purposes. As for Netflix and accessing other content that may not be copyrighted, it is not A VPNs responsibility to block themselves. It is like saying a car company is responsible for everyone who is hurt in crash. It is a tool to be used, and how you use it is up to you.
However any serious offences such as illegal content that warrants an investigation is still Illegal, in this case SaferVPN will comply with law enforcement.

Safer VPN Security Review
SaferVPN make a point of security, it is even in the name. So, we should expect the highest of security. However, security does not necessarily translate to privacy!
Encryption: 256-bit AES
Protocols: OpenVPN, IKEv2 (by default), IPSec, SSTP and PPTP
No DNS leak:
No WebRTC leak
No IPv6 leak
Handshake encryption: 2048-bit
Data authentication: SHA-256
With all these encryption names flying around you may be a little confused, but basically it is a very if not one of the most secure VPNs. However they do full under many Jurisdictions so your data is accessible to government under extreme circumstances. Obviously this is a good thing as we do not support such illegal activity. The security is perfect for a business level VPN service.
We love to see a nice responsive chat widget. I was responded to within about 10 seconds by a man called Simon, very good chat widget answering my questions swiftly.
Chat widget – fast response and answering all my questions
Support help centre with question to many other answers previously asked
Ticket support for more troublesome issues
SaferVPN TOR compatibility
SaferVPN is not compatible with Tor browsers.
SaferVPN does allow P2P but only on the Netherlands Server at time of writing.
Safer VPN History and saved log
SaferVPN is only for really good security and streaming blocked content due to geographical restrictions. For this reason they do keep a log to comply with a number of Jurisdictions so they can cooperate with authorities when required.
They will not log everything, for example the following is not logged...
Your source IP address
Your DNS queries
Your VPN IP address
Your personal data
Your browsing history
This leaves data such as downloaded content with a possible question mark over it.
Safer VPN Jurisdiction information
SaferVPN is located in the US so is under all its Jurisdictions and laws. To be more specific Seattle Washington State.

Safer VPN Overview
SaferVPN seems to be impressing many VPN experts and reviewers. Speeds are good, support is responsive and security is very tight.
I would say the one thing that makes this service stand out is its custom made Routers. This along with high levels of security and being a fully legit US based company make it the perfect option for businesses.
Whilst it does unblock Netflix and other services the ability is limited to just a few servers. For me this is not adequate as I like to watch the Asian versions along with various European options for some great foreign films.
For personal use I would not chose SaferVPN, but for business purposes then it is a very attractive options with plenty of security.
I found the 24 hour trial very disappointing as it only lasted 5 minutes and then said I was out of data. I spoke with the support about this and they quickly gave me access back to the VPN which was very good of them, but still disappointed in the 5 minutes it lasted.
