The "1-Minute" Review

Verdict

BolehVPN receives solid marks in terms of performance and features, but its limited servers and some privacy concerns might scare off people who are concerned about anonymity.

What's good

  • Flexible payment options
  • xCloak obfuscation technology
  • Kill switch
  • Unlimited bandwidth

What's bad

  • Might turn on logging in case of unusual activity
  • Confusing UI

In a market where VPN providers are trying to simplify their software as much as possible to encourage the average consumer to buy into their subscription, BolehVPN dares to be different. But does it provide enough features and customization to keep power users happy? Let’s find out!

Pricing

Want a flexible subscription model? BolehVPN has your back. Instead of starting with a month of service at a time, BolehVPN offers a 7-day plan for a relatively low price. This is great if you just plan on using a VPN when you’re traveling.

Of course, they offer longer packages. Like most VPN services, longer subscriptions mean cheaper monthly rates. You can choose a monthly, two month, six month or yearly plan. There’s also a one-day free trial so you can try it before you commit.

Unlike other VPNs, the subscription doesn’t auto-renew so you’ll need to manually start the plan again once it’s over. For some, this might be an inconvenience, but it’s nice to know that you don’t have to remember to cancel if you didn’t like their service.

Supported Devices

Besides the standard iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows clients, BolehVPN also supports Linux and different routers.

Ease of Use

As mentioned earlier, BolehVPN is not very user-friendly.

The amount of information and features the client provides can be confusing. Reviewers noted the client dashboard is very cluttered, almost putting too much information on one screen. There’s a total of five different tabs and numerous buttons and panels.

Most of the information about your connection is under the dashboard. This is also where you can change your protocol from OpenVPN to L2TP.

Want to change servers? You’ll need to access a drop-down menu and choose one of the 35 servers. But even that can be confusing as it has different options for each country.

There are also BolehFlix and BolehGEO options which help you access streaming services in geo-restricted areas.

All of this can be daunting for those without much VPN experience. However, reviewers note that once you get used to the interface, it’s fairly easy to get around as everything is labeled properly.

Simultaneous Connections

BolehVPN offers only three simultaneous connections. In a market where most VPNs provide five, this is quite low. With that said, since you are able to connect your router, it might be enough for most people.

Included Features

BolehVPN is trying to appeal mostly to power users and its features reflect this. Options include:

  • Kill switch
  • Optimized P2P sharing
  • DNS Leak protection
  • xCloak obfuscation technology
  • OpenVPN and L2TP protocol
  • Surfing streaming servers for major network viewing

Privacy and Logging

Boleh VPN takes privacy, very seriously.

The company behind BolehVPN is based in Seychelles -- a country which has some of the best cloud privacy laws in the world. In addition, the site specifically notes that it operates outside of the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing nations.

In terms of logging, the company notes that the VPN and its site does not log any user data, with one exception. If they notice “unusual activity” they might enable logs on you for a short amount of time.

What counts as unusual activity? Things like high bandwidth usage, a high number of connections, or excessive CPU usage.

They will also turn on logs if they receive complaints about hacking/spam.

Performance

With only 35 servers, BolehVPN has pretty limited options. Still, reviewers found most of the servers were quite fast. US servers were the fastest with the UK, Germany, and Singapore performing around 35% of reviewers' base download speeds.

While not the fastest VPN on the market, speeds should be good enough for most people.

Support

If you need answers immediately, there's a 24/7 customer help desk.

If you don’t need help immediately, you can submit a support ticket. Reviewers found responses took between 24-48 hours.

You can also search through their FAQ and knowledge base or post your question on the customer forum.

Summary

BolehVPN isn’t trying to attract the casual VPN user. Instead, they’re focusing more on power users.

While it provides some decent features and its speeds and overall customization are okay, it’s not enough to stand out from the crowd.

Cloudwards states, “... if you’re looking for a quick-enough VPN and you’re based in Europe or the US, it’s more than adequate.

PC World states, “BolehVPN is a competent service that some power users may enjoy. Its speeds are fine, but its user interface has a level of complexity that feels unnecessary.

BolehVPN is a capable and robust VPN service with a good command of privacy and security. Speeds may vary, and you might need patience figuring out the servers, but it’s worth the hassle, as Boleh offers solid encryption and just about enough features to keep you safe. I say, give them a chance.

It has an excellent no logs policy, uses great encryption, offers a variety of privacy enhancing and censorship busting technologies, and manages to be pretty darn fast while doing it. We particularly liked “VPN through Tor”. BolehVPN does everything important well, and is a great overall service.

The degree of respect a company does or does not have for your privacy should be said with actions and enforced policies, not merely words and contradictions.  Requesting personal info and hinting at logging despite stating otherwise raises an eyebrow to me. On the flipside, support was quick to respond (even if I didn’t like what they had to say).  I also give them points for quickly granting a refund without any hassle.

One of the lower priced VPN providers

from Secure Thoughts

It’s difficult to say whether Boleh VPN is worth recommending. On the one hand, it has fairly comprehensive service at a lower than average price, but their poor customer service limited servers is a big drawback.

A transparent provider with decent speeds and reasonable prices

A provider with a strong focus on privacy, security, and complete transparency. For a reasonable mid-range price, users get a VPN with decent speeds and a selection of neat features. Better yet, you can give this all a go by taking advantage of its 24-hour free trial!

Overall, BolehVPN is a mix of joy and want. We were satisfied with the desktop client’s structure and its availability. We also remain curious about the five different types of servers the company provides; putting the purpose of a server, even just fine tuning one to an agenda is a good call in our opinion, and you can do your VPN activities without the burden of a restrictive log policy.
