Touch VPN -Free VPN Proxy & WiFi Privacy

Unable to access some websites or apps? Worried about unprotected Wi-Fi hotspots? Want to be anonymous and protected from surveillance and hackers? Touch VPN – is the best solution for you!

Public Wi-Fi is not safe. Anything you send or receive on your mobile devices on public WiFi can be intercepted, which makes your personal information such as your passwords, pictures, app data and other private information vulnerable to hackers.

Touch VPN automatically turns public WiFi into safe and secure private WiFi. Your mobile security, privacy and personal information will be protected from hackers, identity theft, and other malicious activities when we detect a public WiFi network.

Touch VPN is powered by one of the most trusted privacy, security and access provider - Hotspot Shield.

Highlights of Touch VPN:

✓ Free: 100% free. No credit card information needed. No trials offered.
✓ Unlimited: Truly unlimited. No session, speed or bandwidth limitations.
✓ Simple: Unblock the world with just one touch of the “Connect” button.
✓ Secured: Our strong SSL encryption will make you fully anonymous and secured.
✓ Support: If you have any feedback or suggestions, please send an email to: [email protected]!

■ What is a VPN

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. When connecting to a VPN server through Touch VPN for example - it sets up a secured and encrypted connection to the server in another country. Because of the encryption process the data cannot be filtered or blocked. If you live in Sweden for example, when connect to a VPN server in US, your traffic would look like coming from the United States, instead of Sweden.

■ Why using a VPN

With a VPN, you are not only able to unblock geo-restricted or censored services, such as Facebook, Pandora and Youtube; your online privacy and security will be greatly bolstered as you’ll be surfing the web completely anonymously.

■ VPN vs. Proxy

VPN and Proxy can both conceal user identity through re-routing your internet traffic and change your IP. A Proxy server is however, completely browser based, whether you are using Chrome, Safari, or Firefox; and might not be compatible with certain web pages that use non-browser technology. Unlike a Proxy, a VPN service encrypts all your traffic, and will work with all internet based services. In summary, VPN will provide you with more online freedom, privacy and security.

■ Why Touch VPN

Touch VPN is 100% free, unlimited, secured and super easy to use. You can connect to any of the servers below (Sweden, United Kingdom, Denmark, France, United States, Netherlands, and Canada) to enjoy unlimited online privacy and freedom. With Touch VPN you can

⇨ Access any website in any country. Bypass geo-restrictions to unblock any website wherever you are! Get access to sites that are blocked or censored by government, school or workplace. Evade firewalls to unblock Facebook, watch YouTube, and circumvent VOIP limitations.

⇨ Protect Your Data from Hackers. When you’re connected to a public Wi-Fi Hotspot, your name, passwords, and personal information can be easily compromised. Touch VPN encrypts your data and provides you with banking-level security for the best protection.

⇨ Touch VPN is a one-click VPN Proxy Service. Touch VPN contains only one button. The button connects you to one of many anonymous servers at speeds faster than a web proxy. When you are not running our app we help you save your devices battery. And, we are a completely unlimited and free VPN!

⇨ Surf the Web Anonymously. Avoid being snooped by your ISP and prevent websites from ad tracking and targeting. Touch VPN changes your IP address, so your online identity is anonymous and your internet activity is inaccessible to prying eyes and businesses.

Amazing

Touch VPN has all I can really ask for in a mobile VPN. It does it’s job the way I want it to. You can use it to connect to servers across the world. And whenever I check my browser after enabling it, I have a different IP address then before. And to top it all off, it’s free! There may be 1 or 2 ads shown, but there is an x button on all of them, and they are relevant ads. I really have no complaints, and I love this app, so I will give it 5 stars.

Seem okay but I thought it included more features

I’m confused since every time I refresh my wheresmyipaddress page it gives me the same one every time. I guess it’s since I’m not a premium member? And I can only use “Optimal Server” mode (which placed me in LA), but will not allow me to select the USA, UK, France, etc., etc. unless I upgrade. I understand having to pay for quality, but I assumed there would be one company out there willing to protect the world/its citizens through anonymity. I will admit that I do not know a whole lot about VPNs but I was under the assumption that all of these apps or sites would randomly change your IP instead of only giving you one layer of protection that is in essence a sitting duck... can someone elaborate or help me understand if I’m missing something? Thanks in advance - trooph WArrIor

Thank you for installing Touch VPN. We offer two versions: Free and Premium. Our free version allows you to connect to 27 Virtual Locations and it's supported by ads. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Please contact us: tap the 3-bar menu, then tap on "Send Feedback" and describe the issue and your E-mail address

Go to VPN app that works very well

This VPN(Virtual Private Network) app offers the service required to secure your internet connection. It allows safe encryption of IP addresses as well as location options for stubborn apps that may not work in certain areas. I am currently using the free trial and am very satisfied with the application's user friendly layout.

Touch VPN Pros & Cons

Pros

  1. User-friendly mobile app
  2. No personal or payment details required on signup

Cons

  1. Uses the least secure VPN protocol (PPTP)
  2. Very intrusive logging policy
  3. Doesn't unblock streaming services
  4. Torrenting not permitted on any servers
  5. No security features or kill switch
  6. Barely any customer support

Touch VPN describes itself as “The VPN service that keeps your phone, tablet & desktop secure & private.”

As of writing, the VPN service has over 10 million installs on Android alone, but do these big numbers make for a quality VPN? As it turns out, 10 million people can in fact be wrong.

We carefully analyzed Touch VPN’s mobile apps and can confirm the service is: slow, insecure, no good for unblocking websites or safe torrenting.

In this Touch VPN review we’ll detail every aspect of the VPN, and answer questions smart internet users want to know. For example:

  • Is Touch VPN safe & trustworthy to use?
  • Is TouchVPN a good free VPN?
  • How does Touch VPN work?
  • Is Touch VPN better than Hotspot Shield?

See our list of top-rated and safe free VPNs

Instead of running risks using Touch VPN, use an affordable VPN like IPVanish. It’s a very safe and private VPN.

Touch VPN's logging policy is a concern

Logging & Jurisdiction

1.0/10

We dissect the logging and privacy policies of every VPN. A VPN should never log:

  • Your real IP address
  • Connection timestamps
  • DNS requests

A base of operations outside of 14-Eyes or EU jurisdiction is preferable.

Touch VPN logs way too much of your data. It knows when you use the VPN, how long you use it for, how much data you use, what your original IP address is, and even your approximate geographical location. This is far from being a private service, and it's based in the US – one of the worst places to base a VPN.

Touch VPN claims that it “only collect[s] a limited amount of information.” We went through its privacy policy with a fine-toothed comb and can say that is not the case.

Here’s a list of everything Touch VPN logs:

  • Original IP address (encrypted and deleted after each session)
  • Duration of VPN session
  • Bandwidth consumed during VPN session
  • Domains accessed by users (anonymized so as not to be identifiable to a specific user)
  • Device hash
  • Information about approximate geographical location
  • Internet Service Provider
  • Timestamps
  • Referring URLs
  • “Information about the nature of the requests that you make to our servers”

After all this, Touch VPN declares:

Our VPN products do not log any information that associates your identity with your VPN browsing activity.

The fact that Touch VPN needs to know your “approximate location” based on your IP address goes to show how far it is from being a privacy friendly VPN.

The service justifies the above by claiming that knowing your location helps “to provide you with [a] better service.” How this is supposed to work exactly, we’re not quite sure.

Touch VPN talks about how it uses “tracking technologies,” such as cookies and page tags. It’s basically tracking all of your clicks and activities.

You even have to allow the app to track your phone in your settings in order to use it.

The VPN service is also prepared to “allow our business partners to place certain tracking technologies in our services.” These “business partners” include 1Password and Identity Guard.

In summary, Touch VPN’s privacy policy is a mess.

US-based Ownership

Touch VPN is owned by Touch VPN Inc., which has been active since 2014. The company is also the developer behind the service VPN 360.

In 2015, Touch VPN was bought by AnchorFree, the company originally behind Hotspot Shield and Betternet.

In 2019, Anchorfree rebranded to Pango, which later merged with Aura, all based in the United States. In other words, Touch VPN is a US company.

Being American-owned is far from ideal, as the United States has extremely intrusive privacy laws and is a founding member of the Five-Eyes intelligence-sharing alliance.

Since Touch VPN logs users’ web activities, the fact the VPN company is based in the United States is of great concern.

Average connection speeds

Speed & Reliability

5.6/10

Speed ratings are calculated using upload speeds, download speeds, and ping (latency).

We test average speeds regularly using a dedicated 100Mbps connection in London, UK. Local download speed is considered the most important factor.

Touch VPN's local connections aren't terrible (20% speed loss on average) but it's long-distance ones are. We picked up only 3Mbps connecting to Germany.

In the absence of fully fledged apps for desktop, we ran Touch VPN through our speed tests as a mobile VPN.

We found the speeds to fluctuate wildly. But this was the average result:

  • Download Speed: 50Mbps
  • Upload Speed: 50Mbps
  • Ping: 3ms
  • Download Speed: 40Mbps
  • Upload Speed: 49Mbps
  • Ping: 12ms

Download speed loss when Touch VPN is running: 20%

As you can see, TouchVPN isn’t terrible, as far as same-country connections are concerned.

How about other locations?

We put all the VPN apps through our rigorous speed testing process to determine the average speeds for multiple locations across the globe.

These are the average international speeds you can expect:

  • USA:
    • Download: 30Mbps
    • Upload: 28Mbps
  • Germany:
    • Download: 3Mbps
    • Upload: 3Mbps

While we picked up shockingly bad speeds when connecting to Germany, we got some tolerable results when connecting all the way to the US.

Just what sort of performance you’ll get from Touch VPN is hard to predict.

Small server network concentrated in Europe

Server Locations

6.5/10

The global spread and coverage of the VPN server network is the most important factor here.

We also consider the number of city-level servers, plus how many IP addresses are maintained.

This rating does not directly contribute to the Overall Rating, but instead makes up a portion of the Security & Features rating.

Touch VPN says it has 5,900 servers in 90 countries on its website. It doesn't. There are actually only 19 server locations available, and all of these are in Europe or North America. There are only six more countries that are restricted for paid users – hardly the 90 it promises. And there's no transparency about what type of servers these are.

Globe with a blue flag
19Countries
Image of a city landscape
19Cities
Image of a pink marker
Undisclosed number ofIP Addresses

Touch VPN’s free mobile app for Android includes 19 server options, including:

  • Bulgaria
  • Canada
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Republic of Ireland
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Romania/li>
  • Russia
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey
  • Ukraine
  • UK
  • US

This isn’t a large or particularly diverse selection of servers.

North America is poorly served with only two server locations marked as Canada and the US.

The VPN network is overwhelmingly focused on Europe. There are no servers in Australia, in Asia, or in South America.

We recommend HideMyAss! for a much wider selection of servers. You can read our review of HMA VPN here.

The iOS version is be limited to a single ‘Optimal Server’ option, which is extremely limiting.

We also discovered that didn’t always connect to the location we selected. Connecting to the Russian server, our IP was registered in Ireland.

This is an unreliable VPN service.

Works with zero streaming services

Streaming

1.0/10

Streaming is rated by the number of different services unlocked, how many regional libraries are viewable, and how consistently the VPN can access them.

Netflix, BBC iPlayer, HBO Max, DAZN, and Amazon Prime Video are all tested on a weekly basis.

People often turn to free VPNs for a quick solution to streaming blocks. Don't bother with Touch VPN, which is completely unable to unblock a single streaming service. That means no extra Netflix or BBC iPlayer, or anything else.

Like most free VPNs, we suspect Touch VPN appeals to a lot of people for streaming alone.

We tested the Touch VPN Chrome extension to find out if it unblocks BBC iPlayer or Netflix on a desktop computer.

We found that TouchVPN consistently fails to unblock US Netflix and other streaming services on both desktop and mobile devices.

We were hoping Touch VPN would at least work for your entertainment needs, even if it throws your privacy out the window. The truth is TouchVPN is absolutely useless.

The solution is to use one of these free VPNs to bypass geo-restrictions and stream video content from abroad.

No P2P support, logs data, slow speeds

Torrenting

2.6/10

We calculate the average download bitrate of every VPN using a bespoke torrenting setup.

Testing also factors in the percentage of servers which permit P2P, plus useful features like port forwarding.

Touch VPN is a terrible VPN if you want to torrent. It logs your data, there are no security features, and it's incredibly slow. There's absolutely no reason to use this VPN for P2P activity.

Touch VPN is not recommended for torrenting, either.

It doesn’t support P2P activity on any of its servers, it’s got an invasive privacy policy, no advanced security features, and its jurisdiction is in the privacy-unfriendly US — bad news for torrenters.

If you’re looking to protect your P2P activity, we recommend looking at our recommended free VPNs for torrenting, instead.

No obfuscation to beat censors

Bypassing Censorship

1.0/10

Our remote-access server in Shanghai, China routinely tests if a VPN can beat restrictions and access a free, open internet. Obfuscation technologies and nearby servers are also a contributing factor.

This rating does not directly contribute to the Overall Rating, but instead makes up a portion of the Security & Features rating.

Touch VPN is unable to get around censorship. Even if it could we would still suggest not using it. The company isn't trustworthy, and there are no servers near strict censorship countries, meaning your internet connection will be very poor.

Touch VPN is no good if you need to connect outside of China or any other highly-censored country.

There are no obfuscation tools to hide the fact that you’re using a VPN, so your government or ISP can detect and block your traffic with little effort if they wanted to.

Even if by chance you’re able to bypass China’s Great Firewall, or other blocks in censoring countries, Touch VPN doesn’t have the necessary security features to maintain your privacy.

Let’s not forget its ridiculously intrusive logging policy that means all of your online activity is monitored and stored, meaning it’s barely an improvement on not even using a VPN

Browser extension only for desktop

Platforms & Devices

A quality VPN should maintain functional, fully-featured applications and extensions for as many platforms and devices as possible.

This does not directly contribute to the Overall Rating, but instead makes up a portion of the Ease of Use rating.

Touch VPN is available on mobile only. There are no functioning desktop apps or manual workarounds. There is a Chrome and Firefox extension, but these are less safe than full VPNs and we caution against installing them.

Apps

If you recall that Touch VPN claims to keep “your phone, tablet & desktop secure & private,” we can 100% confirm that this is not true, for the simple fact that it isn’t even available on desktop.

Touch VPN is only available on:

  1. iOS Logo
  2. Android Logo

Touch VPN says that it is available for Windows and MacOS, but that hasn’t been the case for as long as we’ve been testing the service, which is over a year now.

The app exists in both the Windows and Apple store but isn’t available to download. Asking about this, we received a generic, corporate response:

Touch VPN Email Response

There are no manual workarounds for other devices so you can’t install Touch VPN at router level, nor can you use it with any games consoles or streaming devices.

Browser Extensions

  1. Chrome Logo
  2. Firefox Logo

Despite the lack of desktop apps, you can still download Touch VPN as a Chrome and Firefox browser extension—it’s free and very easy to use. 

It comes with the option to connect to seven countries, including:

  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • Netherlands
  • Russia
  • UK
  • US

Touch VPN is misleading when it says its service is available on MacOS and Windows, as a browser extension is not, strictly speaking, a VPN service – it’s simply an unencrypted proxy that will spoof your location.

Outdated encryption protocol & no kill switch

Security & Features

2.5/10

Top-rated VPNs offer OpenVPN or WireGuard protocols, AES-256 encryption, and a functional kill switch. We also consider additional security features and the global spread of VPN servers.

Touch VPN still uses PPTP security protocol. This is so out of date that it's dangerous to your online safety. There's no kill switch, either, which is an essential feature of any VPN. Using Touch VPN is a risky business. A split tunneling feature has been introduced, thoug.

Protocols
  1. PPTP
Encryption
  1. Undisclosed
Security
  1. WebRTC Leak Blocking
Advanced features
  1. Ad Blocker

Touch VPN is not safe.

It uses the PPTP protocol, which is an insecure, easy-to-crack encryption protocol that is very outdated.

There’s also no kill switch available within the app, which puts your information and privacy at risk should your internet connection fail for any reason.

Its logging policy is incredibly invasive and includes the collection of personal data such as your IP address, location, browsing activity, and device type.

We were surprised to see that Touch VPN has developed its own split tunneling tool called ‘Apps Control’, which allows you to select the apps that are encrypted and which aren’t. The problem is that Touch VPN’s encryption is so poor in the first place.

The Chrome extension does come with additional features including a tracker blocker, cookie blocker, malware blocker, and WebRTC blocker.

You can also alternate between IPSec and Hydra TCP protocols. That said, this does not make up for the lack of security provided by the rest of the VPN service.

Overall, there’s no way we can recommend Touch VPN to anybody who takes their online privacy and security seriously.

Extremely simple applications

Ease of Use

3.9/10

This rating mainly consists of the intuitiveness of setup and everyday use.

Device or platform compatibility and customization options are also a factor.

We don't recommend Touch VPN at all but we can't call it complicated. The apps are very easy to install and use, as is the extension. It consists of a connect button, some servers, and a sidebar menu with few features. This is naturally very restrictive.

How to Install & Set Up Touch VPN

  • It's easy to find the downloads section of Touch VPN's website.

  • You're forced to agree to loads of intrusive permissions before you can begin using the Chrome extension.

  • When we tried to download the Windows app, we were greeted with an error message.

  • When you're disconnected, on the main screen there's only a big on/off button.

  • Once you're connected, you'll be able to see loads of stats about the VPN, but we're not sure how accurate these are.

  • The server list is short enough that you can see all of the locations without having to scroll.

  • The only setting to speak of is the option to route certain websites outside of the VPN tunnel.

Installing the app on Android, we were asked to include payment details. But don’t worry, you can select ‘Skip’ to can access the app without giving away any payment details, so don’t be fooled.

Touch VPN couldn’t be easier to add as a Chrome extension. All it requires is a click from the store or website.

The extension is easily used too. A simple drop-down with server options.

You can’t get much simpler really, and that’s one of TouchVPN’s few positives, even if that’s at the expense of a robust service.

Barely any customer support

Customer Support

1.9/10

This rating is based on our assessment of each VPN’s:

  • Email support
  • Live chat support
  • Online resources

Not every VPN offers all of these, and they often vary in quality and response time.

Touch VPN's customer support is threadbare. There's an email address you can contact for generic, corporate responses and a woeful FAQ on its website. This VPN has a mountain to climb before we can say that it knows its stuff or serves its customers well.

EmailYes
Online ResourcesYes

Touch VPN comes with absolutely no support other than email.

The ‘FAQ’ on the website is a drop down menu, but it doesn’t respond to your clicks. It’s just for show.

But if you go to ‘Support’ you’ll find some actual information.

There are, however, only these solutions: ‘I Can’t Connect’ and ‘Can’t Access Netflix’. There are also instructions on how to ‘Cancel iOS Subscription’.

There needs to be way more information here before we could consider it properly useful.

There is an email option, and responses were quick enough, but they were generic and corporate – we didn’t really feel like we were being listened to.

Touch VPN has got a lot of work to do when it comes to customer support.

Avoid this VPN

The Bottom Line

TouchVPN is a poor quality VPN in almost every aspect.

It provides lacklustre speeds, zero customer support, and will not work to unblock streaming services.

The encryption protocols are outdated and its invasive logging policy puts your privacy at risk.

It even gets its own name wrong on its website, calling itself WVPN, which is perhaps a hold-over from an old name it has since rebranded from.

The website also includes placeholder text where someone has either forgotten to write actual information, or simply not bothered to.

Overall, this is a highly unprofessional and useless VPN that falls far below average for both entertainment and privacy purposes.

We recommend you avoid Touch VPN entirely and consider more established free VPN services.

What is a VPN: VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. When connecting to a VPN server through Touch VPN for example - it sets up a secured and encrypted connection to an external server. Because of the encryption process, the data cannot be filtered.

Why using a VPN: With a VPN, your online privacy and security will be greatly bolstered as you’ll be surfing the web protected.

VPN vs. Proxy: VPN and Proxy can both conceal user identity through re-routing your internet traffic. A Proxy server is, however, completely browser-based, and might not be compatible with certain web pages that use non-browser technology. Unlike a Proxy, a VPN service encrypts all your traffic and will work with all internet based services. In summary, VPN will provide you with more online privacy and security.

With Touch VPN you can:

* When you’re connected to a public Wi-Fi Hotspot, your name, passwords, and personal information can be easily compromised. Touch VPN encrypts your data and provides you with banking-level security for the best protection.

* Touch VPN is a one-click VPN Proxy Service. Touch VPN contains only one button. The button connects you to one of many servers at speeds faster than a web proxy. When you are not running our app we help you save your device's battery.

* Surf the Web Privately. Your real IP address is concealed and your internet activity is inaccessible to prying eyes and businesses.

Ratings and Reviews

I've tried many VPN's-dynamite program!

I have downloaded at least 5 vpn programs and this was the first that always connects, in USA, Germany, France & Italy. It always finds a server. It is even better than one "pay for" program i tried. I can watch German soccer from France, it always stays connected. We have been using it most every day for the last year. No ads! No limits! How do they make revenue? Thank you.

first time VPN user

I have used this for a few months now and I have to say its awesome. I have had no issues with it and so far it seems like it is doing its job properly. I really do appreitiate they are not trying to shove a bunch of ads down my throat for using the free app.

TOO Good to be True??

ö...? (ΩMG)
• I've been researching this app's "Terms of Use" and all the relative FAQ that I can find, but I'm still waiting for the catch?? »My point is: if this is actually a free & unlimited *VPN (not proxy only)* for Mac, then I am officially in love!
~
• If not however, then I 100% withdraw my 5·ST☆R ratings for "Touch VPN," as it'd be extremely misleading for said developers to charge a subscription, when there is ZER0 information regarding it's potential cost(s) in the Mac App Store.

• Otherwise, this would literally be the best invention since sliced bread ö! THANK YOU🤩

Touch VPN is a new face in the VPN market, and what makes it particularly interesting is that you can use it without paying a dime.

On its website, Touch VPN promises to “protect your data from hackers,” and you can “surf the web anonymously.” However, the painful absence of useful information on the website and the lack of paid subscriptions made us question its legitimateness.

Does Touch VPN have the right touch? Is it really safe and trustworthy to use? And is it any good?

That’s what we are going to find in this Touch VPN review. You can use the following table of contents to jump right into the section you’d like to read.

Let’s get started!

Table of contents

What is Touch VPN?

Touch VPN Inc. was founded in 2014. In 2015, Touch VPN was acquired by AnchorFree, the Goldman Sachs-backed security company, which also owns Betternet and Hotspot Shield.

Speaking about the acquisition at that time, Craig Vachon - AnchorFree’s Corporate Development Leader optimistically said: “We envision that the combination of our companies’ technologies may make other VPN companies’ technology obsolete.”

What is Touch VPN?

Then, in 2019, AnchorFree rebranded to Pango, which is listed at 1800 Seaport Blvd, Redwood City, CA 94063, US. That means Touch VPN is a US-based VPN provider. This is actually bad news, because the US has extremely intrusive privacy laws and is the primary member of Five-Eyes intelligence-sharing apparatus.

Touch VPN usability

Official website

Touch VPN’s official website is clean and easy to navigate, including 4 main parts:

  • About. Why should you choose Touch VPN?
  • Platforms. Which platforms can Touch VPN work well with?
  • Servers. How many servers and locations does Touch VPN offer?
  • Feedback. What are people talking about Touch VPN?

We went hunting around its website for further information but quickly gave up. It is essentially one page of basic marketing with a few generic descriptions of what it can do. And we believe that’s a pity, as beginners might need more to understand the company thoroughly.

Supported devices

Touch VPN is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Edge, Chrome, and Firefox. However, if you’re looking for a VPN service that you can use on your Smart TV, router, or Linux distro, you may need to look elsewhere.

Touch VPN’s supported devices

Although Touch VPN supports limited devices, you can use it on as many devices as you want with no bandwidth limits.

Apps

If you’d like to use Touch VPN on your Android, iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, it’s easy to download and install the app in just a few clicks, with handy links on the website. Getting the Chrome browser extension is also equally easy.

Like most other VPN apps, Touch VPN comes with a location list, a “Connect” button, and a short menu. You can choose among its protocols (read below for more information). Besides, you’re able to activate its split tunneling feature, which lets a part of your traffic goes through the Touch VPN tunnel, while some of your traffic connects directly with the Internet.

The Chrome extension has relatively few locations, including the US, UK, Canada, France, Netherlands, Germany, and Russia, but there is more power here than you would expect. Once you tap “Connect,” a new screen will appear with options to block trackers, ads, cookies, malware, and WebRTC leaks. You can also tell Touch VPN to automatically connect whenever you access specific sites, while you can specify other websites to be accessed via your regular connection.

Overall, the installation process is easy and straightforward, but the Android version contains a number of ads and a very annoying habit of asking you to give them a good review that might drive you insane.

Touch VPN performance

Servers and locations

If you love traveling and hope to ensure your digital protection in countries whose name you can’t even spell, Touch VPN is not for you. In fact, it only has 25 servers worldwide in about 30 countries.

Surely, it provides you with the bare minimum of locations in the most populated countries. This ensures most users’ satisfaction, but it is far from offering the flexibility and coverage that other premium VPN providers do.

Besides, Touch VPN offers only Shared IPs, which is great for anonymity, but they don’t provide Dedicated IPs in any of their servers. Plus, the service doesn’t include SmartDNS, which is a significant letdown for streaming fans.

Many users doubt that the company uses fake VPN servers. This means even if you are connected to a specific server in a particular location, the computer client will eventually show you the information for another location. So, it is tough to trust Touch VPN if this sort of thing happens.

Speed

We have to admit that our expectations were not exactly high when we started carrying out this Touch VPN review. Its speed test result may not be as impressive as that of other premium providers, as it’s free.

Speed tests conducted by specialists in the field have proved that our thought is right. The upload speed went to a maximum of 6.68 Mbps on the US server, while the download speed registered a speed of 24.27 Mbps. As for the Netherlands server, the upload speed capped at 32.80 Mbps, and the download speed was 25 Mbps. The ping (the time taken for your request to respond and receive an actual response) was 43.

You can compare these results with other VPN services and see the clear-cut differences. Touch VPN is clearly not an online security provider aimed at those who are looking for swiftness or instant server responsiveness. Therefore, if you are looking for a service that allows you to stream HD videos or even more naively, to stream Netflix, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Streaming

Looking for Netflix and chill? You might be disappointed!

It’s nearly impossible to watch Netflix or streaming sites on Touch VPN

Touch VPN’s limited server selection doesn’t allow us to access Netflix or other popular streaming sites. If you want a VPN that will give you access to streaming sites from elsewhere in the world, don’t put your trust in Touch VPN.

Touch VPN security

There is no way we can recommend Touch VPN to anyone that takes their online privacy seriously.

Touch VPN uses the PPTP protocol, which is insecure, easy-to-crack, and outdated at this point. The only advantage of using PPTP is it often performs faster than other protocols. On its app, you can alternate between IPSec and Hydra TCP protocols. You can learn more about protocol types in this blog post.

There’re also barely any additional security features to speak of, which is disappointing. The lack of a VPN kill switch feature means that if the VPN connection were to drop for any reason, your true IP address would be visible to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), potential hackers, and snoopers.

There’s a WebRTC blocker and ad/ malware blockers integrated into the app, but unfortunately, there is no way of knowing how effective these are. Although we appreciate the level of honesty and transparency demonstrated by Touch VPN regarding encryption and security, the fact is that the methods they use are outdated and far more insecure than those offered by other VPN providers.

Touch VPN privacy and policies

Jurisdiction

As mentioned above, Touch VPN is based in the US, one of the least privacy-friendly countries in the world, making it subject to intrusive surveillance laws and intelligence-sharing agreements.

Even more concerning is that Touch VPN admits it will “share your personal information and other information in special cases if we have good reason to believe that it is necessary,” which is actually the last thing you want to hear from a VPN company. It goes on saying that it “cannot guarantee” that its system will be “absolutely safe,” which is once again significantly concerning.

Logging policy

The information Touch VPN collects may contain, but isn’t limited to:

  • Your IP address and browser type
  • Any websites you visit and time spent on those sites
  • Access dates and times
  • A unique device identifier (e.g., mobile number if connecting from a mobile phone)

Their policy states that they don’t share your private data unless it is consented by you or required by laws or court order. In addition, Touch VPN shares your anonymous information with third parties for research, marketing, and analytics purposes.

In short, we think Touch VPN’s logging policy is not strong enough, which seems to defeat the whole purpose of subscribing to a VPN service in the first place.

Touch VPN’s logging policy is not strong enough

It is worth bearing in mind the phrase, “If a product is free, you’re the product.” This means if a product is free to use, it is usually your data that’s making the company money. If you are looking for a free VPN option, keep this in mind!

Torrent policy

We would also advise torrenters to find solutions elsewhere, due to the fact that Touch VPN doesn’t support torrenting. Free services often restrict their offering in this way because of the risk it poses to their business for illegal downloading from many users.

Also, as stated above, the company lacks the kill switch feature, which puts your identity at the risk of being exposed in the event your VPN connection drops.

Touch VPN customer support

Touch VPN offers two types of customer services: email and online resources.

The FAQ section on its website is a drop-down menu, but each question results in the same and irrelevant duplicate answer. While Touch VPN states that its apps are so easy to install that it doesn’t need to provide any setup guides, it should show available ways of downloading for beginners.

The company is also contacted via email; however, many users report that the responses are not quick enough, vague, and lack detail.

Pros and cons of using Touch VPN

Pros:

  • Completely free of charge
  • Easy to use
  • Unlimited devices with unlimited bandwidth

Cons:

  • A limited number of servers and locations
  • Slow speeds
  • Weak logging policy
  • Torrenting not permitted on any servers
  • No advanced privacy features
  • Under 5-Eyes jurisdiction
  • Lack of customer support

The final verdict

So, do we recommend Touch VPN?

The answer is: Not really.

Although its $0 price tag might lure you in, you should be careful with your choice. The moment you sign up, Touch VPN can log your private information and keep it to sell to third parties.
