AzireVPN Reviews

AzireVPN is a Johanneshov, Sweden-based VPN service owned and operated by a company called Nessla AB. Founded back in 2012, the service – the official website says – is operated by a dedicated team of people with years of experience within network and security areas of the Internet.

Servers and locations

AzireVPN says they have multiple servers at different locations. A quick look at their website reveals that the locations list currently only includes three countries: Sweden, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

The total number of servers stands at 24, of which 16 are in Sweden, while the US and UK have 4 each.

Supported VPN protocols

The AzireVPN website suggests that the service only supports one protocol: OpenVPN. However, it’s worth mentioning that there have been references to PPTP on the service’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Platform Support

Similar to any other professional VPN service, AzireVPN also offers support for all popular operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Android, iOS.

Other platforms that are supported by the service include DD-WRT and Synology. Sadly, AzireVPN doesn’t offer custom VPN application for any of the supported platforms, although detailed setup guides are available for all of them.

AzireVPN also allows you to connect to the service from your Web browser – supported browsers include Firefox, Chrome, and IE.

Pricing

AzireVPN offers a total of three subscription packages: monthly, quarterly, and annual. While the monthly plan costs €5, the quarterly one sets you back €4.3 every month. The annual package, on the other hand, carries a price tag of €3.75 a month.

What’s good about AzireVPN plans is that irrespective of the one you choose, you get to access all the features of the VPN service.

Moving on, AzireVPN offers a free trial for a period of 24 hours, but there’s a catch: you need to explicitly request for it. “Send an e-mail to our support with your username stating that you request free trial,” the official website says.

As for payment modes, the official website lists multiple options, including PayPal, Bitcoin, credit-cards, and Swish.

Finally, coming to refunds, AzireVPN offers a 7-day money-back-guarantee, although keep in mind that the policy is not valid if you’ve opted for the monthly package or paid through Bitcoins.

Another important point worth mentioning here is that AzireVPN does not support automated renewals, meaning you have to manually renew your account each time your subscription expires.

Limit on simultaneous connections

With AzireVPN, you can simultaneously access your VPN account through a maximum of 5 devices. If you connect to your account using multiple devices, the company encourages you to use supported routers.

“Some home routers support VPN connections, you can ask your computer store for a router that support OpenVPN and use our VPN service inside your router to have all computers behind it protected,” the website says.

Privacy

We reached out to the team behind AzireVPN with a list of questions about their service. Here are their answers to some of our privacy-related queries:

Q. Do you keep ANY logs which would allow you to match an IP-address and a time-stamp to a user of your service? If so, what information and for how long?

A. No

Q. Is BitTorrent and other file-sharing traffic allowed on all servers? If not, why?

A. Yes

Q. Which payment systems do you use and how are these linked to individual user accounts?

A. PayPal, Credit card, Bitcoins, Swish.

Q. What is the most secure VPN connection and encryption algorithm you would recommend to your users? Do you provide DNS leak protection and tools such as “kill switches” if a connection drops?

A. AES-256-CBC with SHA512 HMAC and TLS authentication. We do not provide any kill switches but since our DNS servers are open for anyone to use we recommend all users to use them as default DNS servers to prevent leaks and blocking from their own ISP’s DNS.

AzireVPN also publishes a Warrant Canary to keep users informed in case if any warrant is served to the company, or any searches or seizures take place. The service also features full IPv6 support.

    AzireVpn is a nice small vpn team and offers a rather good service for a small price. No leaks , clean ip(s) contrary to big vpn like NordVpn but the number of locations is alas too small

    I tried AzireVPN, since it was a cheaper option compared to ExpressVPN, the price was ok. There were a few problems no refunds for one month plans, slower speeds than Mullvad, ProtonVPN or ExpressVPN as well as missing servers in key locations (Switzerland, the Netherlands and Germany just to name a few). Despite these problems, the service was reliable and didn’t crash. Furthermore, the Windows client leaked my actual DNS. AzireVPN is secure service and transparent one as well, but lacks features, which are worth using in a VPN, such as friendly locations (Switzerland) and a native client, which is not currently in testing and supports android.

    I was getting sick of NordVPN stopping all the time after connecting I knew it had to be them so I looked around for a better VPN to try. I am so happy I found this service as its super fast and private since they own their own hardware.
