ClearVPN review: The stream is the thing

By Ian Paul

ClearVPN in brief:

  • P2P allowed: Yes (via the Downloads shortcut)
  • Number of servers: 47
  • Business location: United States and Ukraine
  • Cost: $93 per year
  • VPN protocol: OpenVPN (default)
  • Data encryption: AES-128-CBC
  • Data authentication: SHA-256
  • Handshake: 2048-bit key
