Golden Frog’s VyprVPN is a popular name among VPN fanatics. The price is reasonable enough with dual payment tiers, the speed of connection is good, and the company boasts it has and maintains 100 percent of its VPN server infrastructure. So, today, we thought to throw some light on the features and services of VyprVPN.(also see, How to Install VyprVPN on Firestick?)
Features and Services of VyprVPN
Two Payment Tiers:
VyprVPN has two tiers: basic and premium. A basic subscription costs $60 per year and gives you access to three simultaneous connections and unlimited data usage. The premium tier costs $80 billed annually. It ups the concurrent connections to five and adds access to software for running own VPN server on Digital Ocean or Amazon Web Services, as well as the ability to use the service’s Chameleon Protocol.
The Chameleon Protocol is VyprVPN’s own proprietary technology that is supposed to defeat VPN blocking by governments, corporations or ISPs.
VyprVPN And Netflix:
VyprVPN also works with Netflix but not in all cases. In my tests, some of the U.S. servers worked to get at Netflix while others didn’t. Though I did find that if I switched to the Chameleon protocol, I could use any server I wanted to access Netflix.
Other Useful Features
VyprVPN’s Options menu offers some helpful options none of which are turned on by default. These include the option to reconnect if you get disconnected automatically, to connect to VyprVPN at boot or when you open the VPN app, an Internet kill switch, and the ability to automatically connect to the VPN when you’re on a Wi-Fi network not included on your whitelist.(also see, How to Enhance Your Security With VyprVPN Kill Switch)
How to Change VPN Protocol
Under Options > Protocol, you can switch from OpenVPN to VyprVPN’s own Chameleon option that is based on OpenVPN 256-bit, and there are also options to use L2TP/IPsec or PPTP.
VyprVPN’s Own DNS Servers
By default, VyprVPN employs its own DNS servers—as do maximum VPN services—to evade any DNS leaks. But you can also opt for using specific 3rd party DNS servers.
VyprVPN Is Available for All the Major Platforms
VyprVPN is available for Mac and Windows, Android and iOS, and there is instructions for routers, some smart TVs, AppleTV, and Kodi, the famous home entertainment PC software.
Conclusion -Features And Services Of VyprVPN
If you are fine with the data retention policy and don’t want to be as anonymous as possible; VyprVPN comes profoundly recommended. It would be nicer if you could jump deeper into each of location to pick specific servers instead of just general country locations, but that’s admittedly more of a premium user feature. The bottom-line is VyprVPN is user-friendly enough and capable enough that even the most beginner user should find it easy to use.
