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, it has removed the previous modes like “Internet Freedom” and “Streaming”. In terms of connection protocols Windows 10 currently supports IKEv2, TCP, UDP, the latest version number is 22.214.171.124, 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!
The daily speed test will help you understand three things:
1. the success rate of the VPN’s server connection in the device under test.
2. the server connection time of the VPN in the tested device.
3. the speed of the VPN after a successful connection to the server in the device under test.

Checking out multiple test reports can help you understand more effectively how this VPN works in the long run.
- PureVPN Win10 Test in China-2021/04/26 - April 26, 2021 test report, today will be another test of PureVPN on Windows 10 for the IKEv2 protocol, this is already my 125th test report on PureVPN. For any VPN in China, you need to persistently test it and summarize its usage over a long period of time to be the most realistic. At the same time, it is most accurate to observe and test the use of it according to the latest dynamics of China's network firewalls correspondingly. For any reader is also the only way to truly understand the long-term use of a VPN in China. I hope such a test will be helpful to everyone, if you have any questions, you can leave a message to exchange (the message is anonymous, please feel free to use).
- 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 126.96.36.199 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 188.8.131.52, 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!
Starting Time: Feb 3, 2021, 1:52 PM
Local Device and Network: Windows10/200M China Telecom/WiFi;
PureVPN Version: 184.108.40.206;
UK – Manchester: Failed; (Try once, Connected and then disconnected)
USA – Salt Lake City: First success; (Time efficiency: 18s)
Speedtest Ping: 271ms; Download: 0.47Mbps; Upload: 1.18Mbps;
YouTube Connection Speed: 2378Kbps;
USA – Ashburn: Failed; (Try once, Connected and then disconnected)
Taiwan – Tapei: First success; (Time efficiency: 10s)
Speedtest Ping: 265ms; Download: 82.92Mbps; Upload: 2.37Mbps;
YouTube Connection Speed: 13712Kbps;
Note: It was a coincidence that I connected to the Taiwan server, as it automatically disconnected when I was in USA-Ashburn, and I wanted to launch the connection to that server halfway through. This got me connected. Haha! From this misuse may be able to learn that a server we can try to connect multiple times, perhaps with different results. In my test due to time constraints, I can not repeat a number of times to test a server, so each server I only test once, connected or not depends on its fate. Haha!
USA – Houston: First success; (Time efficiency: 22s)
Speedtest Ping: Unable to connect;
YouTube Connection Speed: 40Kbps;
There was a disconnection after connecting from the server, and then immediately connected automatically, but the test found that the speed was extremely poor at the moment.
Canada – Vancouver: Failed; (Try once, Connected and then disconnected)
Canada – Toronto: Failed; (Try once, Connected and then disconnected)
Canada – Quebec: Failed; (Try once)
Note: While connecting to test this server, I found a flaw in the design of PureVPN APP, when a server cannot connect successfully, it is always connected and there is no button for me to stop or quit the connection. As shown below, there is a “Cancel Connection” button at the bottom which is supposed to do this, but for some reason, the button is “grayed out” at the moment, so I can’t click it. Is the only way to stop it at this point is to quit the app? If I just quit, I’m worried about DNS or other errors. I hope PureVPN technology can solve this problem. I ended up forcing out of the app, and it did come up with a Micro. Net or some such error, I didn’t see it clearly, I restarted the computer and continued testing.
Summary: A sample of 18 servers were tested in this new version of PureVPN in Windows, and a total of 11 servers connected successfully. Its server connection success rate is still very good, after all, is in the pan server continue to choose. Users from different regions and different ISPs can add the right servers to their collection according to their usual connection and speed, so that after using them for a while, you will get a group of servers that are perfect for you to connect to the wall.
Windows10 PureVPN Version: 220.127.116.11 Protocol: IKEv2
