SecureVPN.com is a VPN provider that we've not been able to test simply because we cannot log into the client. Add that the site's SSL certificate has expired and you've a recipe for disaster. Read about our experience in this brief SecureVPN.com review.

We aim to be fair here at Cloudwards.net. We’ve reviewed the best of the best and the worst of the worst while searching for the best VPN providers on the market. Not every VPN you come across is worth investing in — some are badly designed, some have poor customer service, some are scammy, and some just don’t work.
It’s the latter two categories that we found ourselves placing SecureVPN.com in when we tried to test it. To be clear, that’s SecureVPN.com, and not SecureVPN.pro or Norton Secure VPN, or any other VPN service with the words “Secure” and “VPN” in the title. That said, SecureVPN.pro isn’t very good either, as you can read in our SecureVPN.pro review.
Despite signing up and paying for a package, there are no options for actually signing into SecureVPN.pro with your information after you download and install the client. Bluntly put: SecureVPN.com is either a scam or it’s defunct, but either way, it’s not a VPN you should be investing a single dollar, pound or ruble of your money in.
Taking a closer look at the site, you can probably spot why. While this wasn’t the case when we first signed up to SecureVPN.com, the site has an expired security certificate.
If you take the poor decision to navigate around this error (and you really shouldn’t) then you’ll see a fairly basic site. Our login details worked a treat on the website itself, but we were a little confused by the blank slate we came across.
Still, off we went to test it by downloading the Windows client. The client installed quickly enough, and while it looks a little basic, the client seemed fine at first glance. The client defaults to it’s “free” VPN plan, offering 20 minutes of time and 1GB of data to test.
We’d paid for a package, however, so that’s what we wanted to test. Unfortunately, for a VPN service offering paid services, there’s seemingly no way for you to log in and use it. No settings area in the client, no login menus, nothing. The only choices offered to you are a list of five servers, a link to “upgrade” and the big “connect” button.
The client wouldn’t work on the free plan, either. The client makes the effort to connect on the free plan, but after 10-15 seconds it reverts to “connect.” The client doesn’t report any errors, either.
With an expired site certificate and a client that doesn’t let you log in, the only conclusion we can make on SecureVPN.com is that the lights are on, but nobody is home. Do yourself a favor — look for a provider that actually works, like ExpressVPN or NordVPN. You can also check out our VikingVPN review for a very similar experience.
