Testing Surfeasy VPN with Pingify Mobile Network Diagnostics Tool

Surfeasy VPN Review

In this video we use Pingify to evaluate Surfeasy VPN as we walk around and connect to public wifi hotspots in Center City Philadelphia. The goal is to complete a 4 block loop and see how Surfeasy VPN reacts in real world situations. If the VPN connection disconnects at any point during the test it will be considered a failure.

Pingify test setup:
WiFi network: xfinitywifi
Cellular network: AT&T
VPN: Surfeasy VPN

Testing Surfeasy VPN with Pingify mobile network diagnostics tool is simple: just run Surfeasy VPN with the default settings and also start a test on Pingify.

As we’re walking down the streets, we noticed that as the public WiFi connection was having issues, the Surfeasy VPN connection also started to time out. When the public WiFi hotspot handoff is not successful and the WiFi connection disconnects altogether, Surfeasy VPN will also drop the connection, as it’s closely tied to WiFi. This means that any download would have failed, as well as any streaming video, music or VoIP call.

In our test, Surfeasy VPN was bound to WiFi and disconnected when the WiFi connection dropped. This left the iPhone unprotected to Internet threats.
