Mullvad is a Swedish VPNservice whose primary purpose is to ensure users 100% anonymity. By not storing person-sensitive information at all about the users, it succeeds fully, but unfortunately Mullvad a few places.
There are no apps for Android or iOS, so even though it's not impossible, it's a bit of a hassle to use Mullvad on mobile devices. Unfortunately, there are not so many server locations to connect to, so at DKK 37 (€ 5) a month it is a relatively expensive solution.
Mullvad allows users to use either OpenVPN or the WireGuard protocols to the encryption. It provides the highest level of security as both protocols are open source, eliminating the need to rely on no backdoors or other dirt in the code.
Security: 10 / 10
The people behind Mullvad goes up to the right to a privacy online and it shines clearly through. You hardly find one VPNservice where the user's identity is so well protected
The service does not carry any logs at all, so there is no way in any way to track a user through the IP address.
To ensure customer anonymity, use Mullvad a quite unique system for handling users that we have not encountered before. It works in its simplicity by not having an account with user name and password, but only an account number.
This account number is generated on Mullvads website without having to give up name, email or other information that can be connected to a person. The account number acts as login in programs and apps, where it is just entered and used alone without a password.
The combination of this system and that not being logged, probably gives the highest level of anonymity that one can imagine, but it also has its price. If you forget your account number, it is a bit difficult to get it back and it cannot be done without giving personal information Mullvad.
Anonymity: 10 / 10
