ZenMate is a VPN that was founded by two friends: Simon and Marcus from Germany, who wanted to make the whole internet freely available for everyone. Frustrated by geographic restrictions while traveling, Simon Specka arrived back home from an international trip, determined to dedicate his life to this mission.
Pricing and Plans
ZenMate pricing starts at $10.99 billed monthly, within the typical $10-$13 range we see with most providers.
There’s no six-month ZenMate VPN Ultimate plan any more, and annual prices are now an effective $4.49 a month, up from $3.33 during our last review.
If you’re thinking that’s a little more than you’d like to pay, no problem: ZenMate’s three-year plan is considerably cheaper at a tiny $1.64 a month.
Pros and cons

Below-par support site

Apps aren’t updated often
ZenMate offers specialist apps for almost all devices, and you can use their service across 5 simultaneous connections (eg. 5 of your devices at one time). You can use ZenMate VPN on multiple devices around the home such as Smart TVs (through OpenVPN), PC, Smartphones, and Playstations. They offer easy to install apps for your convenience.
Additionally, they are continually adding to their servers with well over 200+ new servers added to their network just in the past year alone. So you know that they mean business!
To offer even more protection, in the off chance that your connection drops, ZenMate provides a kill switch. This ensures that your data is automatically secured in these situations.
At the moment, customers can only connect to the ZenMate customer support staff through email. The support personnel offer responses in less than a span of 24 hours.
VyprVPN Review Conclusion
ZenMate offers a low-cost three-year subscription, no limits on connections, and a reliable workaround for region controls on Netflix and Disney+.
