As much as I like Cryptostorm's service, I simply cannot escape the feeling that their service has begun a downhill slide.
Technical support appears to be virtually non-existent at present. Encrypted emails sent to their support address are never answered.
Their SSL certificate for Cryptostorm.ch expired on: 2020-05-10 -- some 2-1/2 weeks later, it still has not been renewed. Given that the cryptostorm.ch site houses the Cryptostorm forum, this means that this and other services relying on this domain are inaccessible.
I seem to recall that the Administrator of the Forum went MIA in January, 2020. It was first stated that they would return by the end of March, and I seem to recall that this was later extended to the end of May, 2020. This person is apparently responsible for the administration of the cryptostorm.nu domain -- all services relying on that domain are inaccessible. This includes the token-checker.
To be fair, given that the token-checker service is inaccessible, all tokens, regardless of validity, are still being accepted.
I have been a subscriber to CryptoStorm service for a couple of years now, and I don't have a single bad word to say about it.
The privacy is paramount, and CryptoStorm delivers. The setup is easy (minus the advanced techie level help section/instructions - definitely too much for a regular user), the token simple to swap, and the application runs seamlessly and reliably.
The subscription to token(s) is very reasonably priced considering the level of privacy the user gets, which the company takes very seriously.
As a retired IT and a former guest writer for About.com, I have tested many VPNs, but always came back to CryptoStorm. It is simply the best in my opinion.
I'ts slightly quirky but everything is configured properly and correctly. There is faster VPNs out there, but with crytostorm security is never compromised over speed
