PureVPN is being tested today on Windows 10 devices in mainland China. This is a routine test, and in order to maintain a realistic view of how each VPN is actually flipping in China, I will be running actual tests on these VPNs over the course of a cycle, which I think is the closest I can get to the truth. For this test I will also be testing Virtual Servers for tagged (Virtual) servers. Also, since there may be some issues with PureVPN and SpeedTest’s servers, and since the test results sometimes deviate greatly from each other, I will use “SpeedTest + YouTube Connection Speed” for the PureVPN test.
The daily speed test will help you understand the following three things.
- the success rate of the VPN server connection in the tested device.
- the aging of the VPN server connection in the tested device.
- the speed of the VPN after a successful server connection in the tested device.

Checking out multiple test reports can help you understand more effectively how this VPN works in the long run.
- PureVPN Windows10 IKEv2 Test in China - April 7, 2021 - Today will be a test of the IKEv2 protocol in PureVPN's App in Windows 10. Before testing I checked the latest version of PureVPN and confirmed that 220.127.116.11 is currently the latest version in Win10. When checking its version, I found that the initial loading speed of PureVPN is quite long when opening, about 90 seconds, which is not a good experience for users. But then again, for mainland China users, being able to connect to the server successfully and securely is the most important thing.
- PureVPN Windows / Macbook IKEv2 Protocol Test in China - March 24, 2021, PureVPN will be tested again in Windows 10 and Macbook for mainland China. It's been 9 days since the last test, and regular server connection tests for each VPN are a must to understand how a VPN actually works in mainland China. The PureVPN App in this test is the international common version, the protocol which is using IKEv2, I hope that this test will let you know its real usage in China region.
- PureVPN Windows10 IKEv2 Test in China - March 15, 2021, I can't believe I forgot to test PureVPN recently. After looking at the last test of PureVPN which actually stopped on March 1, today I will once again test PureVPN in mainland China, and the test will use the IKEv2 protocol to connect. The choice of servers was randomly selected, as PureVPN officially does not specify which servers are suitable for mainland China. Hopefully, such a test will provide some reference for readers during their usage.
- PureVPN Win/iPhone/Mac Test in China - March 1, 2021 test, today is the second test of PureVPN after the big upgrade, this test I will test PureVPN in Windows, iPhone, Macbook three devices using IKEv2 connection protocol, the test to Windows mainly, iPhone and Macbook as a supplement. An overall look at PureVPN's APP connection to different devices in mainland China. As there is no Android device in hand, I can't test it. I hope PureVPN for Android can provide some usage and experience sharing in the comment section.
- Win10 PureVPN Test in China–20210203 - It's been a long time since I've looked at PureVPN in Windows 10 for testing, and when I intended to test this VPN again and stick to its latest version, I found that its UI has sent a radical change. This interface really looks so much better than the previous one. In the new version... In terms of connection protocols Windows 10 currently supports IKEv2, TCP, UDP, the latest version number is 18.104.22.168, in this version in addition to the previous manual Ping server function, it will automatically load the Ping feedback time. The following figure shows the left side of the main login interface, the right figure is the server selection interface. Okay, let's start testing!
- PureVPN Browser Extension in China-20210105 - This test to thank readers @Jim Burt on PureVPN browser extension plug-in in China VPN use to share: PureVPN is available for Google and Firefox browser plug-in, where login purevpn can use most servers, and excellent speed, but also stable not to drop, while this feature can achieve a browser local connection VPN traffic a The function. I will use Windows as the test platform today for Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, in addition to the use of Chrome kernel browser can also be universal such as Brave. Whether both devices can access overseas websites through browser plug-ins for users in mainland China.

The tests are sorted by the time of Ping’s feedback. The (Virtual) virtual server I’ve always considered to have a low success rate for server connections, so I’ve always just skipped it before and not tested it. In this test I will test the marked (Virtual) virtual server as well. I hope to break away from the usual practice, and perhaps find some surprises in the past. When testing (Virtual/Virtual) I will label the server so that the reader can distinguish between them. Also, if there are so many Virtual servers in the ping order, it is impossible to test them all, but only some of them will be randomly selected for testing.

As you can see from the above test virtual server (Virtual) test, its server connection success rate is really low, 13 virtual servers were tested and only 1 connection was successful. The following tests will skip the virtual servers for testing.
Canada: Failed; (Try once)
Moldova: Failed; (Try once)
Slovakia: Failed; (Try once)
Netherlands: First success; (Time efficiency: 7s)

Conclusion: As we can see from today’s test results, PureVPN’s App Direct server is still able to get over the wall in Window 10. In addition, we also tested virtual servers, and the connection success rate of these servers is not very high, but the server on the face has a good speed, I don’t know if it is purely by chance, I will continue to observe these virtual servers in the future. The connection success rate to the non-virtual servers is quite high, but the disadvantage is that most of the servers are slow, which is something PureVPN should improve.
