What is VyprVPN and is it fassssst?

I was recently contacted by one of the managers from VyprVPN in Austin, TX and asked if I was interested in writing a VyprVPN review. A lot of people are asking this right now – what is VyprVPN? Since this is a common question I was very interested to review their product.

Firstly, let me apologise for the word play with fasssssst. I couldn’t resist that! You will find out during this review that it is indeed very fast!

A VPN is a Virtual Private Network, designed to protect your privacy and when connected to it you are assigned an IP address to that particular country. VyprVPN is one of these providers.

I was kind of curious to see how they would actually fare with my other reviews of VPN providers so when they contacted me directly, I thought it was a great opportunity to write that review!

If you have read my previous VPN reviews you may know that I was contacted by Ivacy VPN to write a review for them so to get another direct request from another VPN company was quite pleasing.

Without further ado, let’s get started…

 

Product: VyprVPN by Golden Frog
Servers: 700+
Countries: 70+
Multi-logins: Up to 5
Speed: 10/10
Price: 8/10
Best features: Speed and Chameleon encryption

VyprVPN Overview


This review will cover the following topics:

 

Golden Frog, the Company


frog

VyprVPN are owned by Golden Frog who are incorporated in Switzerland. They chose to register the company there due to the favorable privacy laws that Switzerland operate under.

Switzerland actually have a legal frame agreement in place which is written to protect your privacy. Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution guarantees this.

The Federal Supreme Court agreed in 2010 that IP addresses were personal and should not be used to track anyone’s browsing history online, without prior consent of the individual.

I’m starting to like VyprVPN already.

 

Main Features of VyprVPN


  • 256-bit data encryption and Chameleon scrambling
  • Unlimited server switching and bandwidth with 700+ servers
  • No data logs and VyperDNS service
  • Up to 5 simultaneous connections with great apps across multiple platforms
  • 3 day free trial and 24/7 Online Customer Support

 

Data encryption and Chameleon:

256-bit data encryption is one of the best methods and offers high-end protection against your ISP’s prying eyes or third-party snoopers. VyprVPN have something called Chameleon technology which then scrambles the data a second time to offer a double layer of protection.

It is designed to defeat bandwidth throttling and DPI (deep packet inspection). This sounds complicated and it probably is but it also sounds impressive. This technology has been proven to help in places like China, Turkey, Russia, India and Syria where internet censorship is in place.

Chameleon technology is available in the Pro and Premier subscriptions only. The Basic subscription doesn’t include this. It is compatible with Android, Windows and Mac and can be used on your router.

 

Server switching and unlimited bandwidth:

You can easily switch between 200,000+ IP addresses for great connectivity. Switching servers is unlimited and so is the bandwidth.

Typically, a free VPN will only offer limited bandwidth. It’s only when you have a subscription that you can enjoy full functionality. They have 700+ servers Worldwide and own all of them.

Some VPN providers will host on someone else’s server but with VyprVPN they claim to own and operate them all and also write their own code.

 

No data logging and VyprDNS service:

HUGELY important. Some VPN providers maintain data logs for their own personal use. This could be to see how many people connect to the different servers, or for other survey purposes.

For example, they may use the data to check if some servers don’t get used then they would drop them and focus on other areas.

This is a big No-No for me! The last thing you want is a record of your browsing history lying around somewhere. There is no point in having a VPN if this is the case.

VyperDNS (Domain Name System) is their own domain which makes it easier to guarantee that no logs are maintained. Internet users normally rely on their ISP (Internet Service Provider) DNS or third-party DNS which could be set up to record your data, even if you use a VPN.

I wasn’t aware of this DNS problem so this was one of these “good to know” moments.

 

Multiple connections and Apps:

You are allowed up to 5 simultaneous connections depending on which package you sign up to. There is also a feature called NAT (Network Address Translation) firewall which is available on the Pro and Premier packages. The NAT firewall provides another layer of protection.

Pro subscription – 3 simultaneous connections + NAT firewall

Premier subscription – 5 simultaneous connections + NAT firewall

The Apps support all of the major platforms including Android, Windows, Mac, iOS, TV and Router. The App is pretty cool. It shows your IP address with country. It also has a toggle for connecting on untrusted WiFi and also a kill switch.

The kill switch is designed to break your connection with your ISP in the event of a dropped VPN connection, for one reason or another. Sometimes this can happen.

There is a speed graph and a connection log page too.

 

For the Customer:

They offer a 3-day free trial up front. Again, this is hugely important. I always get frustrated when I see some companies not offering this. It’s like buying a car isn’t it? You would want a test drive in it first.

VPN providers that don’t recognize this aspect are missing a big opportunity to get new customers. It also shows potential customers that they have confidence in their own product.

Another crucial requirement is 24/7 customer support. Not everyone is comfortable with using a VPN and may not fully understand how to set it up. To be honest, nowadays they are really simple to use and don’t take a lot of understanding.

However, online customer support is a pre-requisite in my eyes. 24/7 is even better.

 


The Speed Test


This is the bread and butter of any VPN provider. If it doesn’t stand up to the speed test it’s not good. For this test, I connected to OOKLA Speed Test with my Android device (phone) on 4G in Malaysia (my adopted country) and the results are shown below.

The important result I always look for is the download speed. This is used for browsing, emails, accessing Facebook, etc.

best-top-vpn

In Malaysia my 4G signal can be a bit patchy and inconsistent so it was important for me to be as quick as possible when testing again, after connecting to the VPN. I wanted to do a speed test for the UK and USA servers on VyprVPN.

UK server:

I went to the website and found the correct VyprVPN download for my Android phone. I then connected to VyprVPN UK server through the app and performed another Speed Test with OOKLA. The results are also shown below.

stealth-vpn

I then connected to the USA server in Austin, TX (the VyprVPN HQ) and performed another Speed Test. The results are shown below.

USA server:

smart-vpn

As you can see, when compared to the normal 4G download speed (with no VPN) of 3.34Mbps, both the UK and USA connections are actually faster.

This has happened before when I have tested VPN speed but the normal rule of thumb is to allow 8 to 10% reduction when connected to the VPN. I was pleasantly surprised with these test results.

On both UK and USA results, the carrier and server both say Digi and Kuala Lumpur respectively but don’t be confused by this. This is why I showed the connection log with Public IP Location on the right side of the images.

Note: I later downloaded the App on my Mac at home and connected to the UK server. When I was connected I tested it with BBC iPlayer and it was a big success! You can find more information on my BBC iPlayer review by clicking here.

Conclusion


So to conclude, what is VyprVPN and is it fassssst? (sorry again)

It’s a very fast and powerful VPN that I have no hesitation in recommending as one of the top VPN providers for using Worldwide. It certainly isn’t slow that’s for sure.

I hope you have found this review informative. I would love to hear from you. Your opinions are important to me so please feel free to leave a comment below.

    Craig this is a great review!

    I write a few reviews for various products myself and I can say that this one is done very well! I do not know much about this stuff honestly Craig I just happen to stumble on your site here.

    What are some things that I could do with a VPN? I have my own blog but I’m not sure if my business could benefit from having a VPN.

    Anyway, I noticed the good work and fine details you put in here and just had to comment. Once again great job the review!

      Hi David,

      Thanks for taking time to leave a comment. It means a lot. Your business would benefit from a VPN due to the protection it offers. You don’t want your site being potentially hacked but it depends if your blog has SSL security or not. A good VPN would offer an extra layer of protection. Ivacy VPN and PureVPN are 2 other good ones that I recommend.

      Cheers.

        Thanks for the reply Craig!

        This has me a little concerned for the safety of my website for sure! I am putting a lot of time and effort into my online ventures. I would absolutely be stunned if a hacker broke into my site and deleted everything or something.

        I do keep regular backups of my sites information locally on my machine and flash drives as well. I think this is a good practice. If I did get hacked would this help in any way or is there other things that the hackers might be able to get to and cause dismay?

        Not sure about this and I may be on a slippery slope here but do you think they could get to any of my hosting credentials, domain name credentials or even worse attack my ranks in the SERPs?

        Thanks for the information here Craig I have a lot to think about!

        Cheers

          Hi David,

          Being hacked is a real possibility. They have the technology. I would say, if they can hack into your PC they can access your hosting user and password details.

          Look at what is happening in the UK right now, with this Snoopers’ Charter! It’s going to be the end of privacy in the UK. It’s not even just online activity, it can include phone records too. At least with a good VPN we can protect ourselves online.

          By the way, a good VPN can also increase your speed. Depending on your ISP, they may have an in-built firewall. If a VPN breaks through this it can help with increased data flow.

          Thanks again,

    Thanks for the review! It’s awesome to see that they offer the 3 day trial period. It’s annoying when companies don’t. It’s like they don’t have faith in their product.
    And I’m glad you demonstrated how fast it is. This helped a lot.
    Thanks again. Keep it up.

    Hi Craig,
    I am happy to have stumbled upon this comprehensive review, when I was looking for a VPN provider with worldwide coverage for my company. For me security and privacy are the two most important features, when it comes to Internet services. You are absolutely right, I wouldn’t want all my browsing history to be logged somewhere either!
    I also love the idea of having 3 days to test the VPN before deciding if it’s going to be good for our use, so many companies require you to purchase an expensive license right away and if you discover the product has flaws or you overlooked something, you are stuck with your purchase and have to live with your choice, unless if you want to pay for yet an other product!

      Hi there,

      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, it’s much appreciated. The VyprVPN connection is very fast. I have been testing other servers over the weekend and even with the security add-ons it’s still one of the fastest I have used. Another good one is Ivacy VPN. For the UK, any one of these are a good choice. Also Worldwide of course. I have been using VyprVPN in Malaysia while connecting to other servers and it’s super-fast. Thanks for your kind comments, I hope this article has helped you to decide. The 3-day trial is a good starting point. With Ivacy, you get a 7-day money back guarantee.

    Hi Craig,

    Safety and security is so important when it comes to your website, believe me I learned the hard way.
    This is a great review and I like the fact that they have the 3 day free trial, that will allow for some testing before purchasing.

    Now if you compare this VPN to your top recommendation, what would be the benefits and downfalls of the VyprVPN?
    Sorry I’m not very techy so I need it all spelled out for me 🙂

    This looks like a good affordable option though, I might have to give it a go…

    Thanks,

      Hi Vicky,

      I appreciate you taking tine to read my article and thanks for asking about the comparison with my #1 reco. To be honest, there isn’t much between them in quality or speed. I would say VyprVPN offers a higher level of security but if you sign up with my #1 recommendation for a long-term plan you can get it cheaper. The ratings take into account several factors, one of which is price of course. However, VyprVPN also have a special offers so it’s a tough call.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi Craig!

    This is a very thorough review, thank you! One of my biggest fears (maybe even quite irrational because of its magnitude) is my site getting hacked. I have multiple back ups in place for it but I guess prevention is always the best bet.

    I also really like that it’s fast as one of my biggest annoyances is a slow connection. Thank you again and will definitely look into your recommendations.

    your vpn review is amazing. You really went deep on your research and i now know where i should go for good advice. You really did an excellent job covering all aspect of this product. For $10 a month, unlimted data usage and up to five people can connect. I believe this to be dam near priceless. I pay nearly 3 times that amount in my house. WOW!

    Hi Craig,
    Does this work along with your current internet provider or is it a totally new service? I’ve actually never heard of it before. I tried looking it up a bit but it’s still sounds a bit foreign except for protecting your privacy and such. And is it available all over the USA?

    Thanks in advance,

    Wow this sounds like a great service!

    I haven’t used a lot of worldwide VPN’s myself but like you indicated, of the VPN’s I’ve used, the majority slow me down.

    I’m REALLY interested in trying this out! Like you, I appreciate the fact that they don’t store a bunch of tracking data.

    I mean, I understand that metrics are important for QOS (Quality of Service) but you don’t need to identify me personally to figure out what kind of service you’re providing to me and other customers.

    I would assume that you are getting faster speeds because of the multiple connections and asynchronous transfer, is that your take?

    Reply
    1. Craig Post author

      Hey Jack,

      VyprVPN are not the cheapest but they are one of the top VPN providers out there. The faster speeds could also be a result of the VPN breaking through any bandwidth throttling by the ISP or cell network provider.

      This occurs when they deliberately throttle the bandwidth during peak usage to maintain operation. It should be illegal in my opinion but they will deny that it happens of course.

      Thanks for your feedback.

    I am really glad I read up on your site here. I have been shopping around for a vpn and I have tried a few in the past that were quite disappointing. How are you liking the premium? Reason I ask is, I dont mind paying for a product, I just want to make sure that after my 3 day trial, that my money will still make it worthwhile. A good VPN is hard to find these days

      Hi Nate,

      The Premium version is superb. I use it on my Mac and also my Android Samsung phone. I’ve never had any connection issues to date. I like how it displays how fast each server is, before you connect. There’s other cool features that impress me too.

    Hey there Craig,

    Looks like the VyprVPN is a good investment. Has alot of perks with seemingly no downside, excluding there isn’t a money back guarantee. People in Europe will like VyprVPN since there are so many servers over there. 🙂

    I want to mention something.

    You really know your stuff about VPNs! It is good to have someone like you to give objective reviews to have people make the best decisions in purchasing them.

    I have a confession to make… I am not a guy with high knowledge about what relates to a VPN, even though I am a guy in his mid-20s and use the internet a whole lot. Including when on my PS4 and playing online. That being said, I know VPNs basically protect peoples’ privacy.

    However, what are the other perks of a VPN? It looks like they come with internet connections themselves, and have reasonable download and upload speeds (I know the gist of uploads and downloads lol). The YyprVPN has a really good speed for people, as you’ve stated.

    Anyway, I think I’ll stop talking and let you answer my question. Lol.

    Thanks alot,

      Hi Roman,

      There are a few perks with a VPN, the main one being protecting your anonymity online. Accessing get-blocked services is also a benefit. For me, these two are the most important. Data protection when online is an important factor too. You need to have a secure system to protect any personal information.

      However, with a VPN like VyprVPN you need to have a connection either by WiFI or 4G to be able to usr it. It doesn’t have it’s own connection like an ISP provider.

      You’re right, there is no money back guarantee but a 3 day trial is good for testing.

    VyprVPN sounds amazing! I like the visuals of its speed which really sold me on it. I might be doing some traveling in the near future, so I will definitely consider using VyprVPN and probably just use it on a day-to-day basis as well. It’s so cheap! I would expect such a great service to be way more expensive.

    Thanks for the great article!

      Hi Katie,

      VyprVPN is definitely one of the best for breaking through any firewall and they have a great selection of VPN servers. If it can free up some data from bandwidth throttling even better, in my opinion. It’s something I use on a daily basis now.

      Thanks for your kind words.

    Wow Craig, with cybercrime exploding around the world this is definitely a necessary service. The free trial gives me the freedom to experience whether I like this service or not which is cool man. I have been watching the growth of cyber intrusions with worry and always feel unsure when I sit down at my home pc to do online banking etc. I’ll sign up for the trial and take it from there. Glad that there’s 24/7 support also.

      Hi Syntica,

      Yes it’s more peace of mind especially when you are accessing sensitive information online, like banking accounts or paying with credit cards on sites that are not HTTP secure. They have a great support service so you can’t go wrong really. I’ve never had to contact them with any technical queries except once when I couldn’t remember my password. All the servers work well and you can check the speed of each server before you connect.

      Best wishes,

    Hi Craig, thanks for the great review on VyprVPN. It is really informative. I got some questions. With this VPN,is it meant that I no longer require the ISP(in the country that I stay) to connect to internet?

    Second question is about the Chameleon encryption. When the data is sent through VyprVPN to another party, did the receiving end also need to use VyprVPN to ensure the safe data encryption?

    Reply
    1. Craig Post author

      Hi there,

      You still need to connect via an ISP either by WiFi or 3G/4G. The VPN only offers connection to different servers via your ISP.

      The encrypted data only encrypts data from your end so your identitiy is protected. There end result, say the URL you are looking for, is then connected to. The address at the other end doesn’t need VyprVPN.

    Great, informative Post! If I may ask, are VPNs mostly for businesses or do home residences also benefit from a VPN? Does it depend on what the purpose is of why you are online, I guess? Also, how many other VPN providers are there and is the competition for pricing tough enough to say that this cost is the lowest?
    Again, what is the cost after the 3 day trial? Thanks for all this help. – Matt

      Hi Matty,

      VPNs are used for personal and business. VyprVPN has an app which can be downloaded on your device and it’s simple to use. Once you are connected you can use it for anything that involves being online, whether it is to access social media or browse the internet.

      After the 3 day trial you can choose which pricing plan you want. If you sign up for longer it is cheaper in the long run. There are numerous VPN providers now. I have a review of my Top 10 VPN providers which you can read by clicking here.

    Great review with a lot of detail. I’ve used various VPNs for a while since I spend a lot of time out of the country, even though I have used a VPN back home on occasion. I’m somewhat tempted to tryout Vypr after reading your review to see how the speed works in the country I’m in now. Currently, I’m using mostly Avast’s VPN and trying out StrongVPN because it’s supposed to allow access to things like Netflix which doesn’t work with a lot of other VPNs I’ve tried in the past. I do find it interesting how some people have had issues with torrent sites using Vypr. I’ve never experienced an issue with any VPN I’ve used for torrent downloads. For me, that alone almost makes it not worth the price.

      Hi Rob,

      Thanks for your feedback. It depends on what you want to use it for to be honest. Torrents are not something I usually use, I prefer to watch streaming with Kodi or my IPTV supplier NTV. I see no reason to download via torrenting and there are legal reasons for this too.

      Anyway, each to their own. I’m not sure if the other VPN providers would frown on torrenting.

    I liked how you did a speed test to the different locations; this is a good selling point. If the speed is not good, then there is something wrong with the VPN.
    Good idea not to allow torrent downloading as the users would chew up the bandwidth, imagine if everyone was doing that.
    I learned how and why a VPN is necessary good information here.
    Very helpful tips and I will consider using a VPN going forward.

    1. Craig Post author

      Thanks Jimmy, there are legal implications involved with torrenting. Just because you have a VPN doesn’t mean you can access anything illegal. This disclaimer is actually mentioned on the company’s website. So, you are right, it’s good that torrenting is frowned upon. However, I don’t think it really makes much difference to the bandwidth compared to streaming live TV but obviously it will help.

      Cheers,

    Hey, Craig. I’m really liking your website. I’ve been here a couple of times already. Your site has been very helpful thus far.

    As for the VyprVPN, I’m tempted to buy it. I’m a bit concerned about the no money back policy but the free trial somewhat makes up for it, I think. Will let you know my experience with it once I get it.

      Hey Mark,

      Thanks for the feedback. I use VyprVPN and I am loving it. I also have accounts with Ivacy VPN and PureVPN both of which are excellent. The free trial will give you enough time to test VyprVPN but if you feel that you need more time, I’d recommend you sign up for 1 month and see how that goes. You can then decide if you want to sign up for long term to save more money.

      We all like something free and it’s a great way to test the VPN provider for speed and connectivity. I’d recommend you also try the geo-blocked services but I can tell you that they do work anyway. But no harm in trying for yourself. That way, you can feel safe if you buy the VPN for a year or so.

      Hi Carmen, thanks for the feedback. Glad I could help. There are still a few VPN providers who offer free trials but the ones that don’t are losing face in my opinion. Why wouldn’t they offer a free trial? I think it’s hugely important and I don’t trust any that don’t have this feature.

    this honestly looks revolutionary. I am so amazed that a product can help people in countries with limited/censored internet. I also like the fact that it increases bandwidth so it is very useful for streamers and video creators. Very informative review as well. I like how you used “fassst” as a recurring phrase. It helped me remember the product.

      Thanks Daniel, yes in China there is a real struggle going on right now to access the internet. The Chinese government are starting to crack down on VPN providers so it’s important to find one that actually works. You need to use one that has good encryption techniques and a lot of servers.

    Hi Craig, I enjoyed your write up on VyprVPN.

    I appreciate the detailed rundown as the there are so many services to choose from that it can become very confusing trying to pick the right one!
    I like that VyprVPN does not cache or log your data on their server. The speed stats look good too.
    I occasionally have need for a VPN service and will consider this one should the need arise.

    Thanks for sharing the info!

      Hi Oren, thanks for the feedback. Yes, VyprVPN is one of the top VPN providers and that’s why it’s a bit more expensive than some of the other paid VPNs. You only get what you pay for and if it is security you are craving then VyprVPN definitely fits the bill.

      Cheers, Craig

    I really Like the article, it is very informative and I now know more about the VyperVPN, i’m glad you went into great detail on the product I really like how the product provides unlimited data usage and that it can have five people connect to it this appears to be a really good product for protecting me against cyber threats

      Hi Andrew, thanks for the feedback. Yes, VyprVPN allows up to 5 simultaneous connections which is great since we all have several devices these days.

      Best, Craig

    A vey highly technical review. So detailed. I now know a little more about VPN servers now and thanks for that.

    I suppose you do need to know some basics. To be honest it is a bit to tech companies speak for me but I am happy to take your advice as you certainly know stuff.

    I think I can see the real benefits of having VPN in place and was surprised at how little it cost.

    I shall certainly look in to moving towards having something in place soon.

    Great in depth review.

      Thanks James. Glad I could be of some help. If you are looking for a cheap VPN that offers all of the normal subscription services like multiple connections you can check out Ivacy VPN. You get all the goodies without breaking the bank. Cheers, Craig

    It is great to have a VPN service that gives you a free trial period. I have paid for a yearly membership of another VPN provider having used it previously, only to then find that it no longer works in China and they didn’t allow a refund despite a money back guarantee!

      Hi Daniel, that’s unfortunate. I don’t know which company you used so I can’t really comment. I always recommend people sign up for a month before invest long term in a VPN. Sometimes the free trial isn’t long enough so a month would give you much longer to test the VPN. I’ve been using VyprVPN for 4 months now and no issues. Cheers, Craig

    Hey Craig. Thanks for the review. Your review title was very clever and made me laugh. I have used several VPNs for various reasons in the past. One question I have for you is in regards to using specific browsers in conjunction with a VPN. Sometimes I use the browser Tor which is basically a VPN and browser combined. Do you see any need to utilize a VPN like VyprVPN in conjunction with a browser like Tor?

      Hi BizBoss, to be honest I don’t see any advantage. In fact, I’d say it was a disadvantage. I prefer to have my VPN connected through the main app since it has a lot of features that are not available with something like a browser extension. For example, VyprVPN has a Kill Switch so I can’t see how this could be integrated into a browser extension. What if you were online through another app? Thanks for the feedback. Cheers, Craig

    Hey Craig, thx for this great review, you really covered all unanswered questions. I never heard about this VPN before, but it seems like this one is worth it’s money. I am currently abroad and a VPN is really useful. I like that they offer a 3-days free trial, so I can persuade myself, without paying anything before.

      Hi Sven, yes VyprVPN are a bit more than other VPN providers but they do have special offers from time to time. It’s worth checking now and then if you are interested. You can really get some good bargains, especially around festive periods or Black Friday. Cheers, Craig

    Hi I was really enlightened about this VyprVPN service and was really wowed when I saw this because I did not know that it existed!

    Can you also explain how VPN creates more privacy if your IP address is assigned in another country?

    Your review is indeed very well-elaborated and in-depth from my view and I learnt a lot from your write-up. Good Luck in your future endeavours!!! =))

    Thanks!

      Hi Fern, the privacy is created by the data encryption and no logging of data by VPN providers. It doesn’t matter which country you are connected to, that is only relevant for unlocking geo-restricted services. For example, if you want to watch BBC iPlayer from outside UK, you would connect to the VyprVPN UK server and you then appear to be in UK so you can use BBC iPlayer. Hope this helps. Cheers, Craig
