Trust.Zone VPN Review
Trust.zone is a robust VPN provider that deploys rigorous security and privacy protocols that you will not find from many other VPN providers.
Last Updated on
Trust.zone is a VPN provider that now offers a full range of apps across almost all clients and devices. They also deliver a pretty decent 1GB free service. Most importantly Trust.zone are based in Mahe, Seychelles which is an ideal location for a VPN service provider because it is out with the surveillance network.
Therefore you have 100% freedom and anonymity when you choose Trust.zone as your VPN provider.
Trust.zone offers a great point of entry for beginners that want to use their VPN because of their super easy setup process. Sadly, Trust.zone has relatively few servers compared to the leading VPN providers with just 164 servers in 40 countries.
However, their service is pretty easy to use and their unlimited plan is pretty cheap. Also, they are continually adding new servers every week, so it won’t be long until they rise to the top.
Despite many reviews out there saying that Trust. zone don’t offer mobile clients, that is no longer the case. If you are looking to use a VPN on your smartphone or tablet then I am pleased to inform you that you can now do so with the Trust. zone mobile clients.
Additionally, if you are looking for a cheap, iron-clad security solution for your PC, TV, Xbox or Playstation then Trust.zone do offer some major benefits. For example, they allow P2P on all of their servers and they do offer unlimited bandwidth and speed with their annual plan. You can use up to 3 devices/ simultaneous connections which is ok.
Keeping It Simple
Trust.zone are continually adding new options and services. It is pretty straightforward in terms of what you are getting – a cutting-edge, highly secure VPN at a low price. You won’t get confused by their service, they offer a simple super-secure VPN to allow you to Surf Anonymously via an easy to use interface. Their service is continually evolving, each week they manage to add on new features and greatly enhance the service that they are offering.
For example, if you want a robust and secure VPN solution for your Playstation so that you can chat on there anonymously, then Trust.zone will do the job well. Your game chats won’t be logged, nobody can peek in on what you are doing, and you will be able to speak freely, without the fear of someone getting access to what you are saying.
You can give Trust.zone a test drive with their free service (3-day free trial) then upgrade to take advantage of their paid service. For the free solution, you will be limited to 1GB bandwidth, but this should be ample enough to browse the services on hand and decide if it is for you.
Trust.zone does not store logs, which is a great feature to look for in a VPN. This means that you can surf the web and be safe in the knowledge that they won’t harvest or sell your data. Whatsmore, because they don’t track your activity while you are surfing the web, you can use the internet anonymously and freely.
Unlike other VPNs, Trust.zone are not tied down to local surveillance laws, so when they say “no-logs” they mean it!
One thing that is really nice about Trust.zone is the following statement:
We don’t ask for your name or personal details.
Basically, you sign up with your email address and you are flying. However, I suppose you might need to input your bank/ credit card details to upgrade. That is – unless you are using a crypto-currency.
This brings up an interesting point actually, Trust.zone do accept Bitcoin as a method of payment, so if you use an new email address, then you could sign up and pay with Bitcoin in complete anonymity. However, if you use their main payment provider “PayPro” you might be asked for your credit card or Paypal details. One to look out for!
To get started with Trust.zone all you need to do is input your email address, confirm and login. You will then be able to set up the VPN solution on your devices. Everything that you need to set your VPN up is presented as you login to their online application. They now use the most sophisticated “1-click install and run software”, so that it is super easy to get started with Trust.zone.
Switch Between Servers with Ease
Trust.zone will auto connect you to your chosen server and if you want to switch between servers you can do that with the flick of a switch. The lack of servers does mean that connection can sometimes be spotty. I imagine that is due to people all logging on to a particular location at a specific time.
Therefore download speeds are often not great, which will be ok for the basic user but not the more advanced client. In saying that, they are continually adding new servers and updating their features, so their download speeds should continually improve.
Trust.zone Customer Support
Trust.zone has a ticketing system that is operational during office hours. Additionally, they have a comprehensive FAQs section, that I found answered most of my questions (mainly I wanted to know about paying anonymously).
The blog on the site is extremely useful as it lets you know about new features or version releases. For example, they announce information about their kill switch and additional servers that have recently been added to their line up.
Who should use Trust.zone?
Trust.zone is a VPN provider that offers a growing range of products targeted at a both the basic and the more advanced VPN user. Their service is also super secure when compared to other VPNs that are located inside the “Surveillance Alliance Jurisdiction”. When checking out their ethos/ manifesto they say you should:
Get a VPN to prevent your ISP from monitoring your online activity
This is a fairly basic reason to get a VPN and a message that will definitely resonate with the average internet user. However, in tests, Trust.zone does also work with Netflix, which is pretty neat.
Trust.zone Location & Security
The security with Trust.zone is super tight and for this reason, I would advise checking them out. They use the latest OpenVPN protocols with AES-256 encryption and offer a kill switch and dns leak protection. Furthermore, their location is just perfect for a VPN.
Trust.zone are based in Mahe, Seychelles which is outside the “Surveillance Alliance Jurisdiction” areas which are: United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, Denmark, France, The Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Sweden.
Therefore this is one great advantage of using Trust.zone as your VPN provider – they are never obliged to share your information with any outside party.
Although a VPN based inside the “14 Eyes” or “Surveillance Alliance Jurisdiction” may not log your data, there is still information that they will have that could be used against you, should it fall into the wrong hands.
Therefore, if you want to use a VPN that is behind the veil of this sort of intrusive surveillance and purchase your VPN solution with Bitcoin, Trust.zone is a great option.
Trust.zone offer 4 options, the first is their free option that you can get started with straight away. The other 3 services all get cheaper depending on the length of subscription you want to take out with them, here are their 4 package options and prices:
- Free Test – 3 Days
- 1 Month – $6.99
- 3 Months – $4.95
- 1 Year – $3.33
Trust.zone is a robust VPN provider that deploys rigorous security and privacy protocols that you will not find from many other VPN providers. Although they are relatively small (with under 1k servers) their location more than makes up for it. The fact that Trust.zone is based in an area that does not deploy extensive surveillance means that you can gain absolute freedom and anonymity while surfing the web.
