What is IVPN?
VPN stands for “Virtual Private Network” It is a service that protects your internet connection and privacy online.
It creates an encrypted tunnel from your computer to the IVPN servers.
This protects your data and your online identity by hiding your real IP address from your ISP, and the websites your visit. The sites see the IVPN server IP address instead.

IVPN is run by a team of information security experts and privacy activists. The founding team is a group of security professionals who met whilst studying information security at the University of London, UK (Royal Holloway). IVPN has been around since 2009, far longer than most VPN services. 

Resist Online Surveillance
What you do online can be tracked by organizations you may not know or trust and become part of a permanent record. A VPN can’t solve this on its own but can prevent your ISP from being able to share or sell your data.

My two cents worth

I received a 10-day trial from Mike @promo2day. Thanks, Mike.
https://www.promo2day.com/showthread.php?tid=51128

Looking at Mike's review/giveaway and IVPN's website there are many great features and articles regarding security, privacy, and VPNs. Links are listed at the bottom of this article.

On this trial, I have been streaming movies while downloading files and web browsing simultaneously using the IVPN double Hop feature with the firewall features and no tracking enabled.  It is Very fast with NO disruptions or lagging. IVPN has been working perfectly using Single and double-hop connections.  

Update:
Thanks to a Promo2day giveaway and Mike I won a 6-month license for IVPN. I have been using it for several weeks now on my desktop computer. It has been excellent. No issues. Secures my connection if the connection drops.

Benefits:-
Killswitch and Anti-tracker
No logs regularly audited VPN service
No customer data stored
Clear privacy policy
Transparent ownership and team
Strong ethics: no trackers, no false promises, no surveillance ads

Highly Recommended!
