Q: What is PandaPow?

PandaPow is an easy to use, multi platform, VPN service that lets you browse the world wide web securely, anonymously and without restrictions.

Q: What does VPN mean?

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. PandaPow provides Virtual Private Network servers in the USA, Canada, Europe and Asia.

Q: So how does it work?

The process is simple. All you need to do is connect your computer to a PandaPow VPN server. Then just browse the internet as before, but with the difference that now all your internet activity is encrypted and anonymous.

Q: What does anonymous browsing really mean?

Without PandaPow, the unique IP address assigned to you by your ISP is associated with all your online activity. This means that everything you do can be traced back to you.

With PandaPow, you're browsing the web via our encrypted network. Your online activity will be associated with our anonymous IP addresses. Your IP address will be hidden, and safe from any unwanted tracking.

Q: I'm living/travelling abroad, and since I'm outside my country I can't access my favorite websites. Can PandaPow help?

Yes. Many popular websites, like Pandora, Netflix, Hulu, in the US, and BBC iPlayer in the UK, et c, don't allow you to watch or listen to their broadcasts when you're abroad.

With PandaPow you can access these services without restriction, wherever you go. This means that you can get all the online goodies you normally get at home.

Q: Where are PandaPow's servers located?

We started out with servers in the USA, but since then we have expanded to Canada, and to the UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and France in Europe, Australia, as well as Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, in Asia. More expansions are to be expected so our apologies if this list is incomplete.

Q: So what server should I use?

What server to use depends on what you want to do, e.g. what sites you want to access.

If you're just out to secure your regular internet browsing, email and similar, and unblock websites in general, then you're probably best to pick a server closest to your own location.

If you're looking to unblock some country specific site, you need to select a server in the same country as that site.

Q: Can PandaPow prevent others to eaves drop on my internet traffic?

Yes. If you connect to the internet via an insecure public network, in particular if it is wireless, there are plenty of opportunities for eaves droppers to listen in and perhaps even steal sensitive data that you send or receive.

With PandaPow you can have an encrypted connection to our VPN servers, which means these eaves droppers will have a practically impossible task to decode the data sent and received by your computer.

Q: What about email and Internet chat messages, is that also secured by PandaPow?

Yes. When you connect to PandaPow, all information that you send or receive via Internet passes via our secure network. This includes when you use a web browser, when you use chat clients, if you use VoIP (for instance call someone using Skype), if you use specific apps for e.g. Facebook or Twitter, et c.

It does not, however, include messages that you send over regular telephone services, such as SMS. Unless you use an Internet based SMS solution.

A "normal" PandaPow account, however, can only be used on devices that has support for VPN, either via our apps or via built-in VPN capabilities. Typical entertainment devices such as Smart TVs, XBox, Playstation, Apple TV, et c, do not have such support, hence the need for PandaPow WiFi.

Maybe you can, but why should you. Just order PandaPow WiFi, and you'll get a dedicated WiFi router with PandaPow VPN built-in.

A: Yes, on the order page there is a checkbox for "Subscription". Simply make sure this is unchecked, and you'll pay only a single term, and no additional automatic charges will be made.

Q: Can I change a subscription after signing up?

Yes. Changing your PandaPow subscription is easy. Go to the client area and select the VPN account you wish to change. You will then be presented with the available options.

Q: Can I cancel a subscription at any time?

Yes, if you wish to stop the automatic billing of your PandaPow account, simply go to the client area. There you can click the "Unsubscribe" link for your VPN account.

If your account's "Billing" status is "once", it means it does not have automatic recurring billing. So there's no subscription to cancel, the account will expire at the end of the current term and not be renewed until you make another payment manually.

Yes. The first 7 days after signing up for the first time you have the option to ask for a full refund. Simply go to the client area, unsubscribe to your VPN account, then click "Request a refund".
