ZenMate VPN offers service via a simple, well-designed app. There are also installation guides for using ZenMate with smart TVs, routers, and gaming platforms. That said, ZenMate lacks a lot of the features available with other providers, like split tunneling, and an option for a dedicated or static IP address.
A ZenMate Ultimate subscription costs $59 for three years. Plus, you can get three months free, which reduces the monthly costs to $1.51. This makes ZenMate one of the more affordable VPN services out there.
I do have concerns following an exposé posted by my CNET colleague Rae Hodge. In it, she points out that ZenMate was purchased in 2018 by notorious scareware provider Kape Technologies. The company claims it has given up its evil ways, but before installing ZenMate on your systems, I recommend you read Rae’s article.
ZenMate is a German company founded by Simon Specka and Markus Hanel. The company was incubated in the Axel Springer Plug and Play Accelerator with the support of German venture capital funding.
