In 2021, Paul McNally of wrote: “The Privado[VPN] app has been made deliberately easy to get around and is all the better for that. It’s quite simple to turn it on and never, ever think about it again which is great, and also quite a relief that you can just turn on ‘internet safety’ and forget about it.”[5]

PrivadoVPN was ranked as the #1 free VPN by[6] and as one of the top 5 VPNs available in 2022 by TechRadar,[3] Tech Advisor,[7] PCMag,[8] Netzwelt,[9] Macworld,[10] and Digital Trends.[11]

The app was praised by Tom’s Guide, as they gave PrivadoVPN “full marks across the board,” stating that the VPN offers “an impressive showing for a near-brand new service just beginning to get a foothold in the industry.”[12]

In a review on PCMag, PrivadoVPN was credited with having a generous free plan and affordable paid plans, but that it lacked additional security features and had not yet conducted a third-party audit.[13]
