Atlas VPN is an American VPN provider that appeared in 2019 and offers decent services at a very attractive price.

It supports the Wireguard protocol, which allows for decent speeds and a lot of features that we will explore in detail in this post.

Unlike other VPN providers, Atlas VPN allows an unlimited number of simultaneous connections.

Its server base is still limited, to date it only has 750 servers in 40 countries around the world.

Regarding the geographical unblocking of streaming platforms, the performance of Atlas VPN is uneven, if Prime Video or Disney+ did not cause any particular problems, it was more complicated for Netflix.

Torrenting are allowed on all servers and offer decent speeds.

Atlas VPN provides different applications to be used on PC, macOS, Android, iOS, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV.

Atlas VPN Speed and perfomances

0%

Server speed is a critical element to take into account when evaluating a VPN provider.

To test the speeds offered by Atlas VPN we used 3 different sites which are Fast.com, Open Speed Test and Ookla (see how we perform our tests).

Our tests revealed a very clear improvement in performance when we used the Wireguard protocol instead of the IKEv2 protocol, allowing us to reach speeds among the high average of the market, both for European and American servers.

The most distant servers have seen their speed drop, which is perfectly normal considering the distance that separates them from our location.

Latencies are good and we did not experience any recurrent disconnection.

Atlas VPN : unblocking Netflix and other streaming platforms

0%

Atlas VPN allowed us to bypass the geographical blocks of most of the international streaming platforms like Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, DU, Disney +,beIN Sports …

On the other hand, the unblocking of Netflix was more difficult, we had to change servers many times to find one that works, especially on the US Netflix.

The HD streaming was good, allowing us to watch HD videos without suffering from recurrent buffering.

Atlas VPN with Torrent

0%

Despite the fact that Atlas VPN is located in the United States, it allows anonymous torrenting on all its servers.

During our test, download speeds were overall relatively good especially when connecting to a server close to our location.

The main features of Atlas VPN

The Privacy Policy of Atlas VPN

0%

Atlas VPN is based in the United States, a country of the 5 eyes alliance which is all but an advantage in terms of privacy preservation.

Its privacy policy raises questions, certainly it states very clearly that Atlas VPN does not keep any connection data, but when you first visit their site a banner appeared on the use of cookies and only offers the option to accept to close it.

AtlasVPN avis complet

In 2021 Atlas VPN completed its first independent security audit, this one was conducted by Versprite and focused only on the iOS app. Two medium and three low-level threats were identified, which the VPN provider committed to fixing. However, the audit was conclusive.

Atlas VPN : Ease of use

0%

Installing and using Atlas VPN Applications, no matter, the platform does not cause any particular problem.

The interfaces are clear and intuitive, they highlight the different servers with their location, their specificities like those optimized for streaming for instance.

In the Settings section you can activate the options of your choice, including the possibility of launching the VPN as soon as your device starts up or activating the Kill Switch to automatically cut your connection in case of disconnection from the VPN server.

You will be able to determine which protocol to use, Wireguard or IPSec / IKEv2.

Final verdict on Atlas VPN

Atlas VPN has some positive points such as decent server performance, very competitive prices for one-year and three-year subscriptions and an easy-to-use interface.

Nevertheless, it also suffers from major defaults, its location in the United States, a 5 eyes country, a reduced server park or the difficulty to unblock Netflix.

To conclude, Atlas VPN is a mid-range provider that is still quite far from the best VPNs on the market. For comparison, Surfshark offers cheap subscriptions for a much higher quality.
