Another HideMyAss VPN Service Review
HideMyAss is hands down the best VPN service available on the market today. They have fast servers in almost 50 countries and allow users access to an astonishing 29,000+ IP addresses. All ports are open. Said another way, no services are blocked. Easy to use free VPN software called HMA! Pro is provided with all subscriptions. Data transfers and speed are both unlimited.
HideMyAss doesn’t offer a free trial, but they do provide a superb 30 day money back guarantee policy. Free trials aren’t very common with most VPN services. The services are often used by travelers and other people who only need to use it for a short duration. This lends itself to a lot of abuse of free trials. Fraud can also be a major problem with people searching for services used to help add anonymity to their activities.
Pricing for HideMyAss depends on the term length. The per month price is reduced dramatically buy purchasing longer terms.
1 Year = $78.66
6 Months = $50.66
1 Month = $11.52
Payment methods include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, PayPal, Google Checkout, Liberty Reserve, and AlertPay. This is an impressive variety, although we would like to see them add Bitcoin in the future.
In addition to VPN service, HMA also offers proxy services for free. These include a web proxy, IP port proxies, and a proxy browser extension.
The service is fast enough for most users to run Hulu and Netflix from countries where they would otherwise not be accessible. It can also be used to unblock Skype and bypass censorship. Other services that can be unblocked include YouTube, VoIP, BBC iPlayer, and Facebook.
There are also numerous security benefits of using the HMA VPN service, particularly when connecting to the Internet through unsecured wireless networks. These networks make it easy for relatively unsophisticated people to steal their information. A VPN service uses encryption and tunneling protocols to secure this information. This is extremely important in today’s era of rampant identity theft.
The Pro VPN service works with all applications and major operating systems. It is also useful with smart phones and other mobile devices. Many of these devices have default features to enable PPTP or L2TP VPN’s.
HideMyAss is a British company. The founder is Jack Cator. Recent estimates have the customer base nearing the 100,000 paid subscriber mark. This is an impressive feat for a relatively young company and indicative of the quality they provide.
We highly recommend testing HideMyAss. It is a risk free proposition given the generous 30 day money back guarantee.
