About StrongVPN

California-based StrongVPN has been offering computer services since 1994. It's a large team who know what they’re doing, and they offer a great product with strong customer support. If you want to sign up for well known VPN with a good track record, and you like their prices, then StrongVPN might be for you.


There are many legitimate uses for a VPN. However, the legality of using one to access geographically restricted content is a bit of a grey area. While you're not likely to attract the attention of the Australian Government, you do run the risk of having your VPN or streaming subscription cancelled. There is also the chance that a copyright holder may want to pursue legal action if you're found to be accessing that content in an unlicensed region. Keep in mind that the very nature of a VPN masks your IP and prevents your online activity, so it's not for us to say if and how the copyright holders would be able to identify you if you do choose to access their content without the proper licensing. Here at finder.com.au, we do not encourage internet browsing activity outside the law, we only aim to compare the services available to Australians.


What are StrongVPN's pricing and plans?

StrongVPN used to be slightly different from many other VPN’s in that it didn't charge you for a termed contract, and instead for the number of server switches you made.

This pricing model has since been changed to a choice between three different commitment terms: 1, 3 and 12 months. All plans include free access to StrongDNS.

Note: all prices are in US dollars.

What is a VPN and how does it work?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is an internet service that hides your presence on the internet by masking your devices Internet Protocol (IP) address behind another IP address, often in a different country. This provides increased security, less tracking and access to content in restricted regions.

No. VPNs are a perfectly legal service provided by many reputable companies around the world.

    I think you should make a research and find a reliable VPN that does not keep logs. I know that Private Internet Access does not keep logs. However, if you’re going to use your VPN for streaming online content like Netflix etc, I recommend you to check SmartDNS options like UnoTelly. Such services are ideal for content streaming because unlike VPNs, there is no internet speed loss when using them.

      Hi Enrique C,

      Thanks for your enquiry. We’ve provided a comparison of the top VPNs here. You’ll find information on price, data logging and server locations. As for Smart DNS, some VPNs, like Overplay, offer the best of both worlds with a VPN for security and a Smart DNS for faster streaming.

      Thanks,

      Brodie

      Hope that helps,

      Brodie
