Not every VPN allows you to use multiple devices at the same time. This one allows connecting through it using up to 5 devices simultaneously.
Pro Kill switch
Usually, If your internet connection drops for a second while using a VPN, your VPN will drop too, leaving you completely exposed to the public. FrootVPN offers you a "Kill Switch" that severs the connection instantly, saving your privacy.
Pro Supports IPv6
The latest implementation of the IP protocol is supported.
Pro Works on routers
Because this VPN is not NAT-based, it works perfectly on routers(it is VERY HARD to make a NAT-based VPN work on a router at all).
Pro They have a good amount of servers in several locations
There are more than 180 servers in about 34 locations in the world, and you can choose freely on which region to connect to, making it seem as if you were in a different country.
Pro 99% uptime
All its VPN servers have at least 99% uptime, and this statistic can be checked over here.
Pro Dedicated dynamic IP
Its service doesn't use NAT: essentially, you get a dedicated dynamic IP every time.
This, in combination with the "no-logging" policy, will make it very hard to track you down individually, since you are using a completely new address each time and there are no records to connect you with your past browsing or P2P usage.
Pro Protocol flexibility
It supports OpenVPN, L2TP and PPTP protocols, so you may choose whichever suits best your needs.
Pro No bandwidth limitations
FrootVPN does not limit the amount of data that their users can access, but existing limits from ISPs may still be enforced.
Pro Complete and useful installation guides
They have complete and easy-to-follow installation guides for all of your devices and operating systems, for all internet protocol support they offer. Just in case you want to know more, don't hesitate to message them or fill up the online inquiry from through their support page on their website.
Pro Reliable customer support
24/7 reliable chat and e-mail customer support.
Con Possible scam
Multiple people have reported Froot to be a scam.
Con No DNS leak protection
A DNS leak occurs when information starts "leaking" out of the encrypted VPN tunnel into unencrypted service provided by the ISP. In the case of a DNS leak, a breech of privacy can occur because traffic data is logged by the internet service provider.
Con Isn't always an effective way to deal with geoblocking
While VPNs are a popular way to combat geoblocking for services like Hulu or Netflix, FrootVPN is sometimes recognized by these services which results in declined access.
Con Notoriously slow speeds
Many users of FrootVPN report slower upload and download speeds. The slow speeds are likely caused by the encryption/decryption process, as well as the server's distance from most users. Another possible explanation for Froot's slow speeds is that they were unprepared for rapid growth. When The Pirate Bay promoted FrootVPN, they gained 100,000 users at one time, putting a lot of strain on their servers.
