We ensure you that we never log browsing history, traffic destination, data content, or DNS queries. You can read more about our privacy policies at

How many servers/IPs do you have?

Wachee has thousands of IPs available for users. Since Wachee is a streaming-specific VPN, there is no need for a lot of servers. But we have more than enough servers in each country we support and a few servers around the globe.

Why should I use Wachee VPN over other VPN providers?

Wachee is streaming-exclusive, unlike other VPNs that slow down your internet speed, so you will have a better experience while surfing the web. There is no need to search for servers that work on Netflix, each and every one of Wachee's servers unblock Netflix faster than any other VPN.

Where are your servers located?

Our main servers are located in Europe, the US, and Canada. But you cannot manually choose a server to connect to. But don't worry, Wachee is smart and it automatically chooses the best servers for your location. We have servers on other continents as well so users from every country can stream US Netflix with the best quality possible.
