    iTop VPN Pro Offers Dedicated Servers for Streaming and Gaming

    • Compatible with core platforms only
    • Storages large amounts of data
    • DNS request leaks have been reported in the past
    • Average download (24 Mb/s) and upload (13 Mb/s)
    • Favorable price (only $1.52 per month)

    The iTop VPN Pro is one of the mid-sized VPNs, with Hong Kong-based iTop Inc. behind its development. The company is in the business of creating applications for secure internet movement.

    The benefits of iTop VPN Pro include several added features, a good price, and a money-back guarantee for 30 days from purchase. Dedicated servers for streaming services and gaming are also a plus.

    The weaker side of iTop VPN Pro is the connection speed, which may be due to the lack of servers and a large number of users. The compatibility level is poor compared to other VPNs, and iTop VPN Pro also stores more data than other services. DNS request leaks have also been reported in the past.

    In our tests, iTop VPN Pro earned a final score of 7.0/10. It thus loses out on the best VPN.

    iTop VPN Pro gives users a choice of four subscription options. One can choose monthly billing, 6-month, one-year, or two-year payment. The most cost-effective is the two-year subscription, which includes an extra free year as a bonus. With a price of $1.52, this makes iTop VPN Pro one of the cheapest VPNs on the market.

    To order a subscription, simply choose your preferred plan and enter your email address with an additional password in the app. The last step is payment, which is possible via credit card or PayPal. You can also enter a discount coupon, other payment methods are not available.

    With one iTop VPN Pro subscription, only 5 devices can be connected at a time. Compared to the competition, this is well below average; for example, Atlas VPN Pro allows 999 devices to be used simultaneously.

    The iTop VPN Pro application is only available for a limited number of operating systems. Windows, Android, iOS, and macOS devices are supported.

    Smart TVs and game consoles iTop VPN Pro is not supported, nor is there a browser extension. Connecting a router is also not possible, which is disadvantageous given the low number of supported devices under one license. A router is generally seen by VPN services as a single device, so it allows multiple devices to be effectively protected simultaneously.

    Compatibility iTop VPN Pro is generally below average. If you require good device support from your VPN, we recommend choosing NordVPN or Surfshark, which perform best in our tests.

  4. iTop VPN Pro App: User-friendliness, whitelist, server selection…

    • App Languages: 🇺🇸 English +12 more🇩🇪 German 🇪🇸 Spanish 🇫🇷 French 🇵🇹 Portuguese 🇮🇹 Italian 🇨🇳 Chinese 🇷🇺 Russian 🇵🇱 Polish 🇦🇪 Arabic 🇳🇱 Dutch 🇸🇪 Swedish 🇩🇰 Danish
    • Whitelisting:
      Yes
      Whitelisting is supported by 52 % of reviewed VPNs

    Instructions for downloading and using the iTop VPN Pro app are available on the website. At the time of review, the application is available in 13 languages, with English missing from the supported languages. The downside is the availability of only a dark theme for the application.

    The application environment itself iTop VPN Pro is clear, short explanations for each function contribute to good orientation. After launching, a list of all servers sorted by country and purpose of use is always the first to appear. The Smart Location function appears as the first item in the list of servers and selects the most suitable server for the user and connects to it. Next to each server, the current response time in milliseconds is displayed.

    Each time a server is connected, a notification is displayed, and the main icon in the application turns green. The application also measures the connection time to that server. To use the same server repeatedly, simply star it, and it will be added to your favorites list. Next to this list, you can also see an overview of the last used servers.

    The iTop VPN Pro supports a whitelist where you can add applications that will be omitted from VPN usage. You can choose a preferred protocol in the settings or leave the automatic mode where the app itself chooses the fastest and most secure protocol.

    It is also possible to change the language and password of the account in the app or delete the account.

  5. iTop VPN Pro Connection Speed: Upload, Download & Latency

    • Traffic limit: Unlimited

    Download speed

    Upload speed

    Server latency


    Connection establishment was fast even when we left the server selection up to the application. However, the connection speed of iTop VPN Pro is significantly slower than competing services.

    In our testing, we achieved average download values for 24 Mb/s and upload values for 13 Mb/s. The connection speed was not stable during the measurements and kept fluctuating. This can cause problems, for example, when streaming video with the VPN activated.

    The measured values varied mainly depending on the distance of the server from the testing location. Overall, however, they were below average.

    Also disappointing during the tests iTop VPN Pro was the response speed, which reached an average value 130 ms. The lowest value recorded was 20 ms.

  6. iTop VPN Pro Server Locations

    • Number of servers:
      1,800
      The average number of servers for the reviewed VPNs is 1699.
    • Number of countries:
      40
      The average number of countries available for the reviewed VPNs is 41.
    Europe 🇧🇪 Belgium 🇨🇿 Czech Republic 🇫🇷 France 🇮🇪 Ireland 🇮🇸 Iceland 🇮🇹 Italy 🇭🇺 Hungary 🇩🇪 Germany 🇳🇱 Netherlands 🇵🇱 Poland 🇵🇹 Portugal 🇦🇹 Austria 🇷🇴 Romania 🇬🇧 United Kingdom 🇪🇸 Spain 🇸🇪 Sweden 🇨🇭 Switzerland 🇹🇷 Turkey 🇺🇦 Ukraine

    Africa 🇪🇬 Egypt 🇿🇦 South Africa
    Oceania 🇦🇺 Australia

    iTop VPN Pro offers servers in 40 countries around the world, and the selection is quite poor compared to the competition. Servers are also available in the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, the UK, and Ireland. Russia, Saudi Arabia, or Singapore, countries with existing government censorship, are also among the countries offered.

    With the total number of 1,800 servers, while iTop VPN Pro doesn’t rank among the worst, it doesn’t stand out. The leader in number of servers is the competing Private Internet Access, which offers 35,400.

    In general, fewer servers may not matter, as their configuration and number of active users are important factors. We still rate the connection speed iTop VPN Pro as below average.

    An interesting advantage of iTop VPN Pro are the servers optimized for gaming, streaming, downloading and social networking. Gaming servers support games such as Minecraft, Roblox, and Call of Duty. Streaming servers are reserved for HBO, Hulu, NHL Live Streaming, and more. Among the most well-known social networks, Snapchat, Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp are supported.

  7. iTop VPN Pro Security Features: DNS Leak Protection, Kill Switch…

    • DNS leak protection :
      Yes
      DNS leak protection is offered by 92% of the reviewed VPNs.
    • Kill Switch:
      Yes
      Kill Switch is supported by 87% of the reviewed VPNs.
    • Multi-Hop:
      No
      Multi-Hop connection is offered by 20 % of the VPNs reviewed.
    • Tor:
      No
      Tor support is offered by 19 % of the reviewed VPNs.

    Along with DNS disclosure protection and malware blocking, iTop VPN Pro offers a kill switch feature. This protects the user from data compromise by immediately disconnecting the user from the Internet if the VPN connection is lost.

    DNS protection can be applied to all servers offered. In the past, however, DNS request leaks have been reported for iTop VPN Pro, but this should no longer occur. For Windows devices, Browser Privacy and Security Reinforce are available to detect potential risks and suggest solutions needed to eliminate these threats.

    256-bit encryption is used during the connection, along with OpenVPN and PPTP protocols. The choice between UDP and TCP is available in the application. While some competing services (such as AdGuard VPN) offer more secure custom solutions, we consider the protocols offered by iTop VPN Pro to be secure.

    All protection features are located in the “Privacy & Security” tab of the application, where they can be turned off and on as needed.

    Unfortunately, iTop VPN Pro does not support multi-hop connections or two-factor authentication.

  8. iTop VPN Pro & Streaming: Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime…

    • Amazon Prime:
      No
      Amazon Prime streaming is supported by 52 % of reviewed VPNs
    • Disney+:
      Yes
      Disney+ streaming is supported by 53 % of reviewed VPNs
    • HBO:
      Yes
      HBO streaming is supported by 57 % of reviewed VPNs
    • Hulu:
      Yes
      Hulu streaming is supported by 49 % of reviewed VPNs
    • Netflix:
      No
      Netflix streaming is supported by 67 % of reviewed VPNs
    • YouTube:
      Yes
      YouTube streaming is supported by 97 % of reviewed VPNs

    iTop VPN Pro was able to unblock video from streaming services Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Hulu, and Disney Plus in our tests. However, we have mixed feelings about the results; for example, we did not unblock a stream from US Netflix.

    During our testing, we happened to unblock a streaming video only on the second or third attempt. This is because streaming services try to block VPN services by blacklisting the IP addresses used. The solution in such a situation is usually to reconnect to the VPN, which will change the IP address.

    Some streaming services have dedicated servers for iTop VPN Pro. In our tests, while we did get better results on them, playback quality was still hampered by lower speeds and poorer stability.

  9. Features of iTop VPN Pro: AdBlock, Static IP…

    • Blocks Ads:
      Yes
      Ad blocking is offered by 44 % of the VPNs reviewed.
    • Blocks Malware:
      Yes
      Malware blocking is offered by 33 % of the VPNs reviewed.
    • Blocks Trackers:
      Yes
      Trackers blocking is offered by 38 % of the VPNs reviewed.

    The iTop VPN Pro service has a number of added features to improve internet security. It offers malware, tracker, and ad blocking for an undisturbed surfing experience. Super AdBlock even manages to block ads on all the user’s mobile apps. Wi-fi Security, in turn, blocks all dangerous and suspicious sites once connected to the network.

    There are also two test functions in iTop VPN Pro. The IP Checker will check the current IP address information and list any threats. Speed Test will check the current download and response speed once the user is connected to the server.

    The iTop VPN Pro provides a static IP address that is the same for all users. Split tunneling is also available, allowing applications to access the Internet simultaneously through and outside the VPN.

    For an additional fee, additional features can be purchased with iTop VPN Pro, such as Screen Recorder for capturing screen recordings, Data Recovery for rescuing lost data, Easy Desktop for better device organization, and PDF editor.

  10. iTop VPN Pro‘s CPU usage and App Performance

    The load on the device caused by applications of this kind is usually minimal. In our test, we did not observe any changes in device performance that would detect higher performance demands caused by application usage. The iTop VPN Pro application does not take up much space in the device memory either, as its size is around 35 MB. This is less than some competing VPNs.

    Since the iTop VPN Pro app has many features, the load can be further reduced by disabling them. To reduce the load, we recommend not leaving the application running in the background when it is not in use.

  11. iTop VPN Pro Torrenting Servers

    • Torrenting servers:
      Yes
      Torrenting support is offered by 89 % of the reviewed VPNs.

    iTop VPN Pro supports torrenting and even offers five dedicated servers for P2P transfer purposes.

    They can be found in the application settings in a tab called “Downloads”; you can connect to any of them. Supported torrenting clients include uTorrent, Vuze, Deluge, BitTorrent, Bitport.io, and qBitTorrent.

  12. What is the country of origin of iTop VPN Pro?

    • VPN Provider: Orange View Limited

  13. iTop VPN Pro and Privacy: Logging Policy, Security Issues…

    • No-Logs Policy:
      Yes
      The No-Logs Policy is followed by 78% of reviewed VPNs.

    iTop Inc. states that it does not log the activity of its users, so no information about the original IP address, browsing history, DNS queries, traffic destinations, or transmitted data should be stored. The iTop VPN Pro stores more data than other services.

    This data includes information associated with maintaining a user account in the range of email address and payment data, diagnostic data in the range of login frequency, features used, device operating system, and more.

    The iTop VPN Pro website uses cookies, which can be blocked in the browser settings. Of the third-party tools, Google Analytics is used. However, all data is supposed to be anonymous and, according to the company, cannot be linked to specific users.

    The company does not provide any information regarding requests from external authorities for the release of similar information. However, its policy falls under the laws of China and the US, known for monitoring their citizens. There have been no past audits of iTop VPN Pro, but DNS request leaks have been reported.

    We see the security of iTop VPN Pro as sufficient for occasional use, but for regular use, we recommend that another VPN is preferred.
