The first impression and configure

In the beginning, we were met by a slide show, clearly advertises opportunities and programs designed to show it presentable. Some users to buy it, and from the beginning think that they are dealing with a serious application.
 

Next, open the main menu, where there is no advertising, but there is a place under the banner, which literally reads as follows: “Advertising allows us to develop the application!”. Ironically, that is, the developers have positioned their offspring as a solid altruism, but with an eye on materialistic desires. But, I digress. In the middle of a big play button, a left sidebar, where from only useful settings.

Discharge the same is meant to remind of unprotected Wi-Fi-networks, ie open. It is possible to disable the VPN, if the screen is off, ie when the last “burn” all data will be transmitted over insecure protocols. In addition, alternative protocols can be used and “go to the dark side” – to use the dark theme. A translator with the humor appeared. By the way, I almost forgot, TouchVPN exists for Chrome – link in the menu on the plug-in is located in the first row.
 

Well, now let’s try the whole thing in action.
 



VPN

Let’s start with the fact that the program uses, and the VPN, and proxy that redirect traffic by changing the IP-address. However, a proxy server is completely based on browser technology.
 

Unlike a proxy, VPN-service encrypts all your traffic and will work with all Internet services. As a result, it provides you a lot of freedom in the network, as well as security and privacy.
 

it should be noted that the application has a rather impressive list of servers countries. Default – Russian, but since we zaglyuchil on Spotify and Google Store, and then will try to move them from US.
 

Connect to server lasted a couple of seconds (and here advertising’s Crafty!), then the home screen activated built-in monitor speed and connection time. Well done guys – you can really appreciate the throughput capacity of the tunnel.

O-na, that’s the first connection break, and I’m just turned the program to tray.
 

However, the above Internet site opened without special problems and delays. It remains to see what it all costs.

The load on the system

Consumes TouchVPN within the normal range – 109 MB of RAM at a 0.1 per cent load on the system. Battery sags by 11.6%, which, of course, a bit much, but the traffic has evaporated 12.8 MB – this is an acceptable figure.

Conclusions

TouchVPN – easy-to-use application that provides confidentiality and openness of the world Wide web. Several guards battery consumption, and full-screen advertising (which supposedly should not) be annoying, but everything else works on hurray and raises no objections.
 

And if not for advertising and suspicious battery consumption, this decision could be recommended for the installation, but for now we put it in the category of “It is worth paying attention to.”

  • Secure connection;
  •  

  • Quick connection to the server;
