BorderlessVPN is a newcomer and still has some price and performance issues to overcome before it can become a worthwhile option. A small company based in Norway, Borderless has received decent reviews from users. They only operate in 8 countries, have 12 servers and only 12 IP address.
They have a strict no-records policy, which is ideal, but they lack some of the features and speed of the big boys in this space. They accept all major credit cards and, perhaps more importantly for anonymous VPN users, they also accept cryptocurrencies like Litecoin and Bitcoin. As a newcomer, this is one of the fastest growing companies, so we hope they can lower their prices and fix some usability issues to become more competitive.
- Anti-logging policy
- Advanced web filtering
- Powerful encryption features
- Media unlocking
- Global network
BorderlessVPN offers reasonable connection, upload and download speeds, but its speeds are not the best on the market. It offers a constant and stable VPN connection. The company does not set a bandwidth limit. If excellent speed is your priority, you may want to consider other market-leading VPN’s.
Borderless VPN offers a 7-day free trial and three subscription plans: A monthly plan, a six-month plan (6 months), and an annual plan.
Both the free trial and all paid subscriptions give you access to the full feature set of VPN, including up to 5 simultaneous connections and unlimited bandwidth.
The annual subscription has the lowest average monthly cost, but even then Borderless VPN is still quite expensive compared to cheaper VPNs with better features.
Borderless VPN offers a 14-day money-back guarantee. So if you’re not happy with the service or experience technical issues that can’t be fixed, you can get a full refund within the first two weeks of your subscription.
Borderless VPN accepts all major credit/debit cards, PayPal and Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin.
Data Backup and Encryption
When using the IPv4 stack, Borderless VPN provides private DNS and leak protection on every server. Torrenting is possible on all servers as they are all P2P friendly. To maintain the confidentiality of online activities, the provider uses IKEv2 and OpenVPN (TCP and UDP) connection protocols and industry-standard AES-256 encryption.
There is also an integrated web filter that blocks advertising, malware and other suspicious sites, which can be activated in the application.
Borderless VPN points out that it “does not store login information or bandwidth data per customer,” subject to “possible exceptions in the Terms and Conditions Agreement.” The document is actually a classic T&C and states that the company “does not keep records of users use of the service”, which includes IP addresses, DNS requests and bandwidth.
It reserves the right to open detailed records in the following circumstances: There is a fault with the service that requires troubleshooting by company staff; if there is a suspicion that an end user or the service is under attack or is about to be attacked; and for the purpose of improving or updating the service provider’s service. According to Borderless VPN, all log files are deleted immediately when the scenario in question ends. At this point, we have no choice but to trust the company, pending an independent audit to substantiate these claims.
Borderless VPN is a relatively new VPN, and the company is still developing its product. Its privacy certificate should satisfy most users, but its Norwegian jurisdiction is less amenable to absolute enforcement of a no-logging policy. BVPN has strong security features that should satisfy most users. However, it does not offer some advanced security features.
