Ivacy is a VPN provider founded in 2007 and based in Singapore. Ivacy is a good choice if you need split tunneling (which allows you to choose which connections should go through your ISP and which should be sent through the VPN).
This provider is also a good choice if you torrent regularly. They have servers optimized for peer-to-peer transfer.
Ivacy is active on social media and readily responds to support questions (via email, live chat and a ticketing system).
Update April 2019
Ivacy offers a good selection of servers worldwide (450 currently). Their coverage of Asia is particularly strong, with servers in China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, India, Taiwan, and Korea.
A couple of other services are available:
- Dedicated IP Address — useful if you want to start with a “clean” internet identity — for more information, see our article The Best VPN Providers Offering Dedicated IPs.
- A hosted firewall — Ivacy offers an in-house NAT firewall that doesn’t require any configuration — particularly useful on mobile devices because they don’t have built-in firewalls.
