ZenMate VPN Review
Simple to use, but on the slow side
ZenMate VPN is a robust VPN that can protect your privacy when online, removing the threat from snoopers and hackers. It doesn't have the more advanced features of some of its contemporaries, but it is simple to use and offers a wide range of servers to connect to.
- Simple setup
- Free security extras
- Easy to use
- Fairly cheap
- Inconsistent speeds
- Doesn't unblock all streaming services
There are many Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) out there, but ZenMate VPN tries to differentiate itself on performance, anonymity and ease-of-use. It doesn’t maintain any logs of your activities and it gives an almost instant, two-click setup. While it’s certainly easy to use, we found that disappointing internet speeds prevent ZenMate from being one of the best VPNs to choose.
ZenMate VPN protects your connection from Internet snoopers, but also disguises your IP address and your location, giving you a little more privacy and anonymity while you’re online.
That’s a real plus if you’re worried about who might be tracking what you do or say while you’re connected, but it can also help you access US-based services if you’re travelling abroad or connect to blocked sites if you’re in a country where the internet is censored.
