From the company’s name itself, we already know what are its agenda, advocacy, and reason for the business organization’s existence. The name ultimately reminds people to secure their internet privacy through anonymous web browsing. It also reminds us to use VPN to secure the transfer of important files and documents which we are doing online. There are very few details about VPNSecure.me you can find on the internet. In fact, you will only know that VPNSecure Pty Ltd. is located at Level 1/360 St Pauls Terrace Fortitude Valley, Brisbane QLD. It was also incorporated in Brisbane, Queensland in Australia in 2010 but recently moved its infrastructure management operation to Hong Kong because of some government restrictions. It changed its name to Lucro Corp Limited. Since the existence of this VPN provider is very secretive, it led me to further investigate and have come up with a comprehensive review. Read the full VPNSecure.me Review below.
As of this moment, there are 4 subscription plans that VPNSecure.me is offering. I can pay monthly at $9.95, semi-annually at $49.95, and annually at $79.95. On top of that, I can choose the 3-year subscription plan which costs $107.64. All of the 4 subscription plans allow a maximum of 5 simultaneous connections to the VPN platform.
There is also a free trial option for 30 days. However, the free trial is limited only to 2 GB worth of bandwidth or internet traffic. There is also a money-back guarantee for 7 days upon purchase of the subscription plan. I can pay for my subscription plan through PayPal, Paymentwall, Perfect Money, major cryptocurrencies, CASHU, Payza, and credit cards.
VPNSecure.me is for people who want to stay hidden in the eyes of companies and government agencies that are collecting data for various purposes. It is also best for people who want encrypted internet access to avoid detection, surveillance, and breach of confidential information. It is also quite useful for people who want to defeat bandwidth throttling and geo-restrictions of video streaming services. If you want to defeat internet censorship, then having a VPN connection like VPNSecure.me is a good course of action.

The VPN platform is actually compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux computer operating systems on top of Android and iOS mobile gadgets.

Internet Kill Switch
When I activated the Internet Kill Switch program of VPNSecure.me, I can’t access and browse the internet without connecting to one of the VPN servers. If my connection is suddenly dropped, then my internet connection is disrupted too. In this manner, I can be assured that I’m protected and remain anonymous all the time.
I can direct the VPN system to allow certain websites to connect to the internet without passing through the VPN system. This means that even if my Internet Kill Switch is active, all the websites listed in the “Routing” section will be exempted from the effect of the program.
I can also easily activate the Stealth VPN protocol that allows me to circumvent DPI firewalls, VPN blockers, geo-restrictions, and internet censorship programs. The server speed if this feature is activated is a little bit slower than normal but you can still enjoy a decent level of server speed when accessing video streaming services.
This feature allows me to have an ad-free web browsing experience. When connected to the VPN system, the search results while I was browsing were not affected by my browsing preferences and search history.
I can download both VPNSecure.me for Android and VPNSecure.me for iOS mobile devices. Because of this, I can access the internet safely even when connecting to public Wi-Fi using my mobile phone.
VPNSecure.me has a DNS leak protection and IPV6 leak protection. My original I.P address remained hidden.
