Safer Web offers two plans from which subscribers can choose. Both are available with monthly, 12, and 24 month subscription terms, with the multiple-month terms reflecting discounts and being paid in full at the beginning of the subscription.

The Premium Plan only includes servers at 7 locations, rather than the full VPN of over 30 locations.

While appearing to be competitively priced, Safer Web is more expensive than other plans with comparable or better features e.g. with more server locations or, more simultaneous connections allowed.
Safer Web, like the other Pseudo Ltd.VPN providers, collects significantly more personal data than other companies. They state that they may use this data to support their customers and keep it for as long as it is reasonable or legally required. AMong the data which they may keep are the following:
- Telephone number
- Fax number
- Email address
- Dates of service provided
- Types of service provided
- Payment history
- Manner of payment
- Amount of payments
- Date of payments
- Credit card or other payment information (only used for billing)
As is the case with most VPN providers, certain information is gathered about users' VPN sessions including: the user's IP address, amount of data transferred, times of connection and disconnection from the server as well as which server(s) were used during the connection. Safer Web states that they do not log or collect data about specific browsing behaviors or individual sites visited.
In spite of having offices in the United Kingdom, as Safer Web's parent company is based in Massachusetts, the company is under the jurisdiction of the US and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
As far as the additional features which the Review Team looks for in a VPN provider, Safer Web does not offer any of them. They don't offer kill switches, firewalls, or ad blocking.
