VyprVPNBack to overview
For companies, there are many reasons why they should use VyprVPN. As an individual, you should also do it, especially if you travel a lot or are often on an unreliable network. When a connection is established, it causes an encrypted tunnel to be created between your device and the servers of the respective Virtual Private Network. The software development company Golden Frog has launched VyprVPN, which currently has 700 servers, distributed across 43 countries in six continents. This makes it easy to bypass obstructions. You do not have to worry about possible censorship by companies and governments. In practice, it translates all your Internet traffic from your device to the VyprVPN servers, using 128-bit, 160-bit, or 256-bit SSL encryption. This makes your Internet traffic safe and protects your online data from hackers. In addition, it ensures that network providers between you and the VyprVPN server are not blocking content based on the geographical location or type.
Users are automatically distributed across the different servers in one location. This makes it possible to keep the speed optimized. For the following operating systems, there is a client: Windows, iOS and Android (both by app) and OSX (mac computers), certain smart TVs, DD-WRT routers and routers on Tomato MIPS / ARM framework. If you want to use the VPN connection on other operating systems, that’s easy because VyprVPN supports the most common protocols such as Linux. In this case, you will need to set up the connection yourself. One possibility is OpenVPN. The 256 bit encryption is offered by both the Pro and Premium account. All traffic is with the L2TP / IPSec, OpenVPN and Chameleon. The data logs are kept by VyprVPN for 30 days. For example, they can easily find out who downloaded certain files through, for example, the bittorrent protocol. Anyone who downloads illegal content should be aware that they can be terminated from the VyprVPN network.
VyprVPN has good capabilities for software reliability. A Windows and Mac computer can be configured so that when the system is started up, the software automatically connects to a server. When the connection is lost, the Internet connection is automatically blocked when a connection is disconnected and when there is no connection. Otherwise with Android and Iphone apps, manual startup of VyprVPN is required. Neither of the smartphone operating systems have apps with a kill switch. In addition, VyprVPN itself indicates that Netflix cannot block the VyprVPN Chameleon protocol, as it does not recognize this protocol. As a consequence, you can also view the American Netflix.
VyprVPN supports IPSec, OpenVPN, L2TP / IPSec, and PPTP. The Windows and MacOS versions can use all four other supported protocols. The Android app is currently using OpenVPN or Chameleon, while the iOS app uses IPsec. Golden Frog has written Chameleon itself, a protocol that allows for different devices and operating systems to easily connect to VyprVPN’s servers. You can also install the third-party OpenVPN app, enter your VyprVPN credentials, and use them instead of VyprVPN’s iOS app, to connect to the service through the OpenVPN protocol.
VyprVPN offers different packages. How much you pay depends on the different features and limitations that the different packages have. With a basic subscription, you can connect three devices – computer, tablet and phone – at the same time with a server. This is €3,50 a month. Often this is more than enough. The VyprVPN premium package is suitable for the intensive user; There is no data limit and it provides access to enough secure protocols. This is €5,- a month. The Chameleon protocol is, however, unavailable for this basic package. VyprVPN premium offers the possibility of five simultaneous connections. In addition, the package is accessible to the Chameleon protocol.
