The "1-Minute" Review

Verdict

If you’re looking for a VPN service that provides some of the best privacy and security features around, VyperVPN is an excellent choice -- though you must splurge on Premium for more connected devices and their obfuscated protocol Chameleon.

What's good

  • Zero log policy
  • 71 server locations
  • Kill switch
  • P2P support
  • Fast performance
  • Live chat support
  • Chameleon mode to conceal VPN use (Premium only)

What's bad

  • Server location mismatch
  • Cannot always connect to all servers
  • Only 3 connected devices for the standard plan

Golden Frog offers a variety of services designed to help improve Internet connections and provide privacy and security. VyprVPN is their security and privacy service. With experience in Internet security, dating back decades, you’d think their VPN should be one of the best.

Let’s look at how their service compares to the competition...

Pricing

VyperVPN offers two tiers of VPN service: regular and premium. Both feature discounts if you pay annually instead of monthly. If you’re not sure you want to pay for a VPN right away, both options offer a free 3-day trial.

If you opt for the premium option, you unlock access to their Vyper Chameleon Protocol and VyperVPN Cloud service for an extra layer of security when you access cloud server services.

There is also a third business-only tier. It offers advanced features, such as dedicated servers and access management. However, it is priced higher than most consumers would find affordable. We won’t cover the business tier in this summary.

Supported Devices

You can use VyperVPN with almost every device. They offer clients for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. It also works with most TVs and routers -- including Android TV, OpenELEC, Apple TV and Tomato. Sadly, there is no Linux support.

Ease of Use

Whether you’re on the mobile or desktop client, reviewers found the interface intuitive with easy-to-understand navigation and a clean layout. The client itself updates automatically when new servers go online so you can quickly try out new locations.

Simultaneous Connections

On this front, VyperVPN falls short...

Their standard package only allows for three simultaneous connections. If you want five, you must pony up for Premium. This decision is surprising as competing VPNs -- such as NordVPN and TunnelBear -- offer five or more simultaneous connections on their standard package.

Included Features

For those who want to personalize their VPN experience, VyperVPN offers:

  • Auto connection and reconnection
  • Kill switch protection
  • P2P on all servers
  • Variety of protocols including PPTP, L2TP/IPsec, and OpenVPN
  • Zero-knowledge DNS
  • Cypher Secure
  • NAT firewall
  • Chameleon Protocol

Cypher Secure provides encrypted messaging to protect your conversations from potential security threats such as third parties and cell phone providers. The NAT firewall provides an additional layer of security by restricting unfamiliar inbound traffic on your mobile devices and router.

Chameleon is VyperVPN’s protocol to prevent VPN blocking and also adds a layer of security, making it perfect to circumvent geo-restricted content.

Privacy and Logging

Headquartered in Switzerland, Golden Frog has a leg up for privacy over American competitors. The company coded everything for their service and also own and operate all the servers and other infrastructure on their network.

This means there isn’t a third party handling your information. And the protocols VyprVPN supports are some of the best around in terms of encryption.

In other good news, VyperVPN keeps zero user logs. They have even gone through an independent audit with Leviathan Security Group to prove this, becoming the world’s first publicly audited zero-log VPN.

Performance

VyperVPN advertises themselves as the world’s fastest VPN. While experts wouldn’t consider it the absolute fastest, they found it very speedy with excellent download and upload speeds. If you’re looking for a VPN for P2P use, their network can handle it.

With that said, reviewers noticed connection failures to a few servers -- notably Algeria, Egypt, Israel, and Pakistan -- which lasted more than 24 hours. And while they didn’t test all 71 servers, they mentioned that some were not as fast as others.

Some reviewers found mismatches with server locations. For example, Luxembourg servers were in Pittsburgh. If you’re trying to circumvent geolocation checks, these mismatches can cause a problem.

Support

While a lot of VPN companies offer excellent email support, you have to wait at least 30 minutes to receive an answer. Sometimes you want an answer immediately.

If this is important to you, VyperVPN provides immediate support through live chat. Most agents responded in less than 2 minutes. They can also send you a transcript of the conversation should you need to refer to their instructions later.

There’s always email as well. But instead of filling out a form on the site or from your own email client, you can open a support ticket from the VPN client. Reviewers found this a much more streamlined process.

_

Summary

If you want a VPN that offers a high level of security, VyperVPN is a solid choice.

While it isn’t perfect, the service provides plenty of features to help you secure things how you’d prefer. This makes it a great option for VPN newbies and pros alike.

Best VPN describes VyprVPN as “an outstanding VPN that has proven its no logs policy.”


What the Critics Are Saying...


Expert Reviews

On some levels, VyprVPN doesn’t stand out of the crowd. It’s not particularly fast, packed with features or cheap. On the other hand, it gives you access to a lot of servers based all around the world, along with more control than many other VPNs when it comes to protocols and options. Other VPNs ar...

VyprVPN has many small issues, but it also gets a lot right: loads of apps, easy to use, decent value, unblocks Netflix with ease and is one of the few VPNs to confirm its zero-log status with a public audit.

- Mike Williams, TechRadar
Tom's Guide

VyprVPN does a lot well. We love that it owns all its own servers and has publicly audited its own logging practices, and features like the Chameleon protocol and automatic VPN connections on public WiFi are extremely handy. We’d like to see better performance and an expanded server network, but the...

I enjoyed the software as a whole. It works fine and is easy on the eye, it’s safe, the price isn’t that high, and the support is great. But while writing this VyprVPN review I was constantly annoyed by the impossibility to connect every time. What stops me from saying a definite “yes” is the proble...

Overall VyprVPN is a high-quality, fast, secure VPN that performed well in testing for this review. It offers a great lineup of applications that are user-friendly, secure, and reliable. The live chat support is also helpful if you need assistance getting anything setup. Now that VyprVPN is official...
