SpyOFF VPN is strongly advertised in German online media with “Anonymous on the Internet” and “Free Test”, reason enough to take a close look at the service. In our test report, we found the advantages and disadvantages of the provider. However, while the operation is quite user-friendly, SpyOFF is not equally suitable for all applications.

Description

VPNTester_Checkliste SpyOFF offers VPN Access to servers in 29 different countries and also encrypts the connections with PPTP, L2TP and also OpenVPN Default. However, there are no other protective measures by the operator to protect themselves against targeted attacks such as the WebRTC Leak, but you should not overestimate this, as this can also be secured by browser plugins. Furthermore SpyOFF has apps / applications for Windows, Android and Mac OS to offer, which will seem sufficient for most users. The big advantage of the service is that everything is done in German and is very, very easy to use. Even inexperienced users will have no problems with it.

As far as payment methods are concerned, SpyOFF offers payment methods via credit cards, direct debits and PayPal. It is debited automatically, but this process is transparently displayed in the customer area and you can end the service directly in the customer area.

Geschwindigkeit

The servers that I was able to test were always ok in terms of speed at the beginning, but after 3-4 hours it became slower and slower. It seems that the IP addresses are either too few or the servers are simply being used by some file shareers. One must therefore expect that from time to time the server used must be changed manually.

Notice: It is the case that the real IP address is also used at short notice due to the disconnection. Therefore it is advisable to change all programs before a connection change (Torrent, Downloads, browser) and only start again after a successful server change.

Anonymity & privacy

You have to understand that SpyOFF VPN individual rented servers are used, which, as in any case, also offer good protection against general surveillance. But it is also essential that you make the appropriate settings on the browser in order to be able to keep your identity in any case, this takes away from the SpyOFF service VPN does not end in the end. As far as the use for “streaming” or “file sharing” is concerned, the provider is absolutely certain. The topic of “log files”, which is often tiresome for me, can also be taken for granted in this case, but this is not a disadvantage for the purposes mentioned. So you can be sure that your identity is sufficiently protected.

Important information or possible problems:

  • SpyOFF VPN does not offer its own DNS server for use, this can be a disadvantage. It is therefore best to manually set the DNS selection on your own device. (DNS provider)
  • SpyOFF stores the user's bank data and automatically debits. You have to know that, and not everyone will find it convenient to have their payment details directly with you VPNService remain stored.
  • As for the protection WebRTC leak concerns, SpyOFF is not able to prevent this, there are corresponding browser plugins, which can be used for this.
  • KillSwitch is NOT ACTIVE when changing servers! It is the case that the real IP address is also used at short notice due to the disconnection. Therefore it is advisable to change all programs before a connection change (Torrent, Downloads, browser) and only start again after a successful server change.

Clear customer area

A customer area should provide the most important information for use and the contract area with just a few clicks. This is exactly what the SpyOFF customer area does VPN, which I would prescribe as "exemplary". Not only that you can find all information quickly, but you also have the contract data area with high transparency and clarity, in which you are constantly informed about payments, debits and the end of the contract.

My summary

The VPN Tester rated. SpyOFF had lacked some transparency in the past, but is now absolutely on the right track. The service is definitely recommended for inexperienced users and those who do not have a credit card can be debited directly from their bank account. The customer area has now become a really simple and clear portal, where you have an immediate overview of all the information you need. SpyOFF is suitable for file sharing and streaming and is easy to use. The use is limited to Windows, Mac OS, and Android devices!
