Pricing couldn't be simpler as there's just one plan, at 5 (4.30, $5.35, AU$7.10) a month. Mullvad offers a very short 3-hour free trial, but it's enough to run quick performance tests, and if you decide to buy there's also a 30-day money-back guarantee. Privacy Figuring out a VPN's logging policy is often a real challenge, but again, Mullvad is different, spelling out the fine detail in an excellent blog post . The key point is that nothing is logged that can be connected to a specific account. No traffic, DNS requests, IP addresses, not even routine connection times, dates or bandwidth used. Mullvad explains that it monitors the current number of connections to each account, to ensure no-one can use more than the three allowed. But this isn't saved, so there's no way to tell how many you were using five months, weeks, or even minutes ago.
