Using PureVPN: Installation and Configuration

PureVPN offers its own software with which you can use their servers. This software is available for Windows, OSx (apple macbook or imac), iOS (iPad or iPhone), Android and DD-WRT routers. In this review we discuss the Windows and iOS version of the PureVPN software.

PureVPN for Windows

The PureVPN application for Windows has recently been completely renewed. To install the Windows app you must first download it. Then you have to go through the simple setup, which speaks for itself. During the installation you get a message from Windows asking if you want to install a new internet adapter, you have to confirm this question (yes answer).
As soon as you start the PureVPN app for the first time and log in with your data, you will be asked the purpose for which you want to use the VPN connection. This choice ensures that you can connect directly to the most optimal server. This setting can of course be changed later.

The dashboard of the PureVPN app gives you the possibility to specify in detail what you want to achieve with the VPN connection (the choice exists at the time of writing: VPN for China, ABC TV streaming, BBC iPlayer streaming, CW TV streaming , Entertainment channels faster streaming, ESPN streaming, HBO Now, HULU, iTV, Amazon Prime, BeIN sports, sports channels, online gaming, Sky TV, Sports 1, WWE Network, TVCatchup, VoIP, RTE Player, Zattoo watching).

After this you can choose from which country you want to do this. In addition, you can also make a choice for a VPN server purely on the basis of region, country or city. A search option is also available for this.

In the Windows App there are also a number of other settings to change including: automatic connection if the VPN connection is lost, protocol selection (ikev, tcp, pptp, l2tp, sstp, udp, automatic), 265 bit encryption on or off, secure Enable DNS, IPv6 leak protection, Internet Kill Switch (automatically disable all internet connections if the VPN connection is lost), Split tunneling (excluding programs from the VPN connection).
