[T]his service aims to offer a bit more than most other VPN services. For instance, it integrates with Tor, and, it uses specific in-house algorithms to ensure that all your data stays confidential, and it’s Swiss-based (Switzerland currently has some of the [most] powerful privacy laws).

Writing specifically about our Windows app, Vladimir had this to say:

The Windows client is indeed a modern-looking and smooth-running application. It boasts a clean, black-themed UI with a design that goes exquisitely well with Windows 10 and its black taskbar.
