tigerVPN Review & Test (2020) - Good Overall, But Some Drawbacks
TigerVPN does not require any special software and is very easy to configure and use. Extensive and detailed setup guides are provided at the service's website. Like premium vendors such as NordVPN, TigerVPN is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS and Android. This means it can be used on nearly all desktop and laptop computers, as well as smartphones and tablets.
TigerVPN provides prompt and efficient customer support. Subscribers have at their disposal a Priority Support feature at the service's website. On the website users can also find extensive FAQs and guides to help configure and use the service.
TigerVPN offers a monthly plan and an annual plan. Both have the same features, but the annual plan allows users to save 20%. TigerVPN also offers a 3-day money back guarantee. For an additional per-device fee, users can connect up to 5 devices at the same time. TigerVPN also offers Karma Points to reward users who like the service and spread the word. Karma Points allow users to get more subscription time or add more connections free of charge.
They are also running offers listing a lifetime service for $29, listed in many websites, so this would be a substantial savings, if you find that TigerVPN is for you.
An important tip that will save you a lot of money!
From some unclear reason, the guys at TigerVPN allow you to change currency without changing the amount paid,
meaning you can pay $6.67 or £6.67 (which is currently 25% higher). So, whatever plan you select, make sure you choose the lowest currency, and save a few bucks :)

Users can also pay an additional fee to add extra devices, Karma points can be earned by members – these can be exchanged for extra time on their subscription or additional devices. TigerVPN also allows users to purchase a lifetime service.
TigerVPN has a good track record of reliability. Support is available through 24/7 email, or 10 hours a day (EST working day) for their live chat service. Replies to emails are always within a few hours,vthough. They do also have a fairly well written FAQs section on their website, and do post updates on social media. Don’t post questions on their social media outlets though, as they’ll just point you to the live chat/email features on their website.
