12VPN and HideMyAss are two VPN providers that help you hide your IP from hackers and trackers, while making your traffic anonymous even for your internet supplier. Thanks to this kind of software, you will also be able to access those tricky geo-blocked websites that you’ve been dying to visit for ages. But when the time comes that you have to pay for a service, the choices have to be wise since a bad investment can turn out in a lost investment. In this particular case between these two providers it won’t, but it’s more than worthwhile to give both of them a look before deciding on any VPN service.

To begin with, 12VPN’s website promises you the basic VPN required services without letting too much information go out there. In fact, they do not specify, for example, which encryption they use, only assuring you that it is a military grade one. The same happens with the protocols, which are nowhere to be seen. The provider only lets you know that their servers are located in United States, Canada, Europe and Asia without stating an accurate number.
What we do know though is that 12VPN runs on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) with unlimited bandwidth and high-speed connections. We also know that you can purchase the service using credit cards, PayPal, Bitcoin, AliPay and Discover. You can choose from 3 different packs: a 3-month one, a 6-month one and a yearly one billed at $99/year ($8.25/month) with a 35% discount already applied.
12VPN requests you to try it for yourself and, to be honest; you have nothing to lose since the provider allows a 14-day money back guarantee.
HideMyAss is more than a funny name; it is actually a fairly decent VPN service with a vast presence worldwide. In fact, the over 120,000 IP addresses come from 940+ servers in something like 350 locations in 190+ countries. Now that’s taking service coverage to a whole other level. If we keep in mind that HideMyAss’ VPN runs on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android, besides featuring browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox, that’s really an appeal to pretty much the entire world. Besides that, it also features the Anonymous Referrer, Anonymous Email and router purchase option so you can protect all your devices.
You can have HideMyAss protection for one, six or twelve months. If you want the best deal, then you should definitely invest in the yearly pack since it has a limited time offer 55% discount and is billed at $4.99/month. To note the very generous 30-day money back guarantee that allows you more than enough time to try and test this software and see if it suits you just fine.
12VPN and HideMyAss are two services that get the basics right and offer you a convenient way of connecting to secured VPN servers across the globe. HideMyAss does its business with a more global approach, offering servers in just about every country possible. 12VPN on the other hand is mostly catering to expats and other netizens who are keen on unleashing the power of VPNs in China. Since they both have generous money back guarantee periods you have nothing to lose when trying it for yourself, and you’ll have plenty of time to find out if such promises were delivered after all.
