SimpleVPN, for only $8USD/mo, promises to make securing your online privacy “simple”. The website supports that: it’s clean, clutter-free, and easy to read through. Right off the top, the first thing learned is that SimpleVPN is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android, Linux, and DD-WRT.

The order page is… simple. There’s no full-service menu. It’s $8 a month and you get a discount for bulk orders of three ($22USD), six ($42USD), or twelve months ($72USD) at a time. Each subscription includes a free SimpleTV subscription, which is apparently video streams preset for viewing by subscribers. Payment is accepted via PayPal and Payza. They also accept Bitcoins and bank transfers.

Information provided is written in a warm, friendly tone and is easily understood, clearly directed to those who are less confident in their technical skills. The FAQ/Knowledgebase follows the same clean, clear, pleasant format, even when explaining that SMTP on port 25 is blocked due to too many spam complaints and that P2P is blocked on all but a few servers.

Currently, P2P is blocked in:

  • UK
  • USA
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Ireland
  • Germany
  • Egypt
  • France
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • New Zealand
  • Russia
  • Singapore
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland

Filesharing is permitted through:

  • Czech Republic
  • Holland
  • Luxembourg
  • Malaysia

Setup is done by downloading the application – the “Getting Started” page provides clear, visual, step-by-step instructions for downloading, installing, configuring, connecting, and using the service. Very clear instructions – it’s difficult to think why any well-maintained machine would need customer service.

The Privacy Policy ( ) – simple: two short paragraphs plus two sentences. They timestamp connections and log bandwidth – that’s it. Terms of Service ( okay, maybe not so simple but it’s clear they made an effort. The Acceptable Use Policy ( ) is even more not simple: apparently “acceptable use” is restricted to pretty much emailing your mother (so long as you’re not actually bothering her). How this ties in with the uses advocated on their site (pretty much all technically not allowed) is unclear but it’s likely a case of covering their backsides, from a legal PoV.

It’s a light, clean, pleasant website and the company has gone to great lengths to provide a decent service without all the complications and confusion.
