ZenMate is a security & privacy service based off Germany, providing secure tunneling for browsers and mobile devices. The company operating ZenMate is ZenGuard GmbH,a Berlin-based startup.
Review Update, June 14, 2015: We included ZenMate in our Alternatives to Holaarticle.
ZenGuard, the start-up of year 2014 in Germany (according to the deutsche-startups.de online publication) managed to attract investments worth almost 1 million euro during the last year and it is planning to expand the business even further.
According to its founders, behind the 7 letters of its name lies a simple browser plug-in aimed to protect users privacy over the internet. At the moment, the company provides servers in 5 different countries on 3 continents: Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Hong Kong & USA.
The service is also available for mobile devices using an easy to use app that can establish a secure VPN tunnel using IPsec protocol.
The ZenMate team is coming from 8 different countries. In the about page 24 staff members are presented, being also mentioned their international approach, with 12 languages spoken.
ZenMate is currently available for three different browsers, for free: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera as well as on other desktop browsers that are based on the Chromium Open Source Browser Project, namely SRWare Iron, Chromium and Comodo Dragon.
Be aware that ZenMate is not a full-featured VPN service, but a proxy addon for the browser that will also encrypt the browsing traffic. Other traffic on the PC will not be secured by the addon.
Also, an iOS and Android App is available, and this one provides a classic VPN connection using IPsec.
On the technical side, for encryption, ZenMate use the latest TLS 1.2 (RFC 5246) protocol and support different cipher suites with PFS
- Easy to install and use.
- Decent speed.
- Free (for now).
- Limited number of server locations.
- While still a startup which looks solid, we’d like to see more features to address the needs of many users, like support for OpenVPN.
- Being a browser add-on, ZenMate does not “cover” the user while he is using the internet outside the browser (P2P, email clients etc.).
- IP leaks are all over the place, so you definitely need to use additional plugins to stop some of the leaking (over WebRTC, Flash etc.). This is a problem for users who are very serious about their online privacy.
