VeePN offers several standard and advanced features.
NetGuard is a VeePN feature that is meant to make browsing faster, safer, and more convenient. It does this by providing three functionalities: ad blocking, tracker blocking, and malicious website blocking.
These three are provided as different features that you can turn on when using the apps. The adblocker prevents pop-up ads and auto-play videos. The tracker blocker prevents user profiling, while the malicious site blocker protects you from phishing sites and others that host malware.
VeePN provides a kill switch that is meant to prevent accidental exposure. It does this by blocking all internet connections when the app senses that you’ve lost your VPN connection accidentally. The feature comes in handy if you don’t want to risk exposure, for example, when using BitTorrent.
Double VPN is a security feature for people dealing with sensitive data. It enhances security by tunneling your traffic through two servers, with each of them providing encryption. For example, you can connect to a server in Germany through another in the UK. The UK server will encrypt your traffic, and the German server will also do the same (double encryption) and act as the exit node. However, double VPN usually slows down connection speeds significantly, and so only use it when necessary.
DNS Leak Protection
This is a privacy feature that ensures that all your DNS queries are encrypted and sent through the VPN tunnel. It therefore prevents accidental exposure that can happen without the user’s knowledge. VeePN uses a private DNS to maximize privacy.
VeePN promises to let users access Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime Video, and more. We found that the VPN lives up to its word during our tests. We were able to unblock all these services without an issue.
