The multihoster Real-Debrid has a very interesting offer. The premium account for 15 days costs only 3€ and more than 30 filehosters are supported. In our test, we take a closer look at the service, the download speed and accessibility. We look at the current hoster list, the costs and the different payment methods(Paypal, Bitcoin, Paysafecard).
Real-Debrid Test Download
For our multihoster test, we have a 50 MBit internet connection (maximum 7 MB per second download) and we use the download manager JDownlaoder 2 or the browser or the website of Real-Debrid directly. As an exception, we switched off a VPN in order to get an unbiased result. However, we advise every user to use a VPN if they want to move anonymously on the internet.
With Real-Debrid we were able to reach our test file on Uploaded.net without any problems and were able to download it with an average of 4 MB per second. We were able to download the 500 MB in under 2 minutes. The speed was a little slower than we had hoped.
We were also able to reach the file hoster Turbobit.net directly with Real-Debrit and almost reached the maximum download speed. We were able to download the test file at just under 6 MB per second and needed about 90 seconds for 500 MB.
Our experience with Real-Debrid has been very good so far and we were also able to reach Rapidgator immediately. We were able to download the test file at just under 5 MB per second. The speed dropped a little towards the end and fluctuated between 2 and 6 MB per second.
Real Debrid Hoster List
The following filehosters are supported by Real-Debrid. The hoster list is dated 20.03.2020 and is updated at irregular intervals. If you would like to have an up-to-date overview, it is best to check the Real-Debrid website directly.
Like every other user, we bought an account with Real-Debrid for 3 € to test it and make our own experiences.
The payment options are very limited and we particularly miss the possibility to pay with Paypal.
We paid for our Real Debrid Premium access with Bitcoin. In addition to the €3, there were €0.17 in fees. The transaction worked without any problems.
Real-Debrid offers the following payment methods:
- Credit card
- Amazon Pay
- Prepaid Tickets (Paysafecard & Neosurf)
- Cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin & Ethereum)
- SMS & Phone
The support is definitely worse than with other providers. We only found a Facebook page, a Twitter account and a very manageable FAQ page. We searched in vain for an email address or a live chat.
Security - data is stored
How secure is Real-Debrid really? On the website under data protection you will find the following paragraph.
Files links that Users download are stored in a database for legal concerns and our internal use. All saved links are erased within 1 month for security reasons and service needs. However all requests made on our site are stored for 1 year, the legal retention period.
Translated, this means as much as:
File links downloaded by users are stored in a database for legal reasons and for our internal use. All saved links are deleted within one month for security and service reasons. However, all requests made on our website are stored for 1 year, the legal retention period.
This statement actually makes the service unusable. Who wants their data to be stored for over a year?! No VPN or the like will help.
The multihoster Real-Debrid convinces with its download speed and price. However, the security point is a knock-out criterion for us. That's why we advise against Real-Debrit and recommend the multihosters Linksnappy or Premiumize.me. These are a bit more expensive, but offer much better service and better handling of the users' data.
