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. It’s 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 🙂

Reliability & Support

8.8

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.

The Bottom Line

Compatibility, customer service, savings and karma points; what more do you need?

TigerVPN assures us that no logs are kept, and that as they developed the codes themselves, they can guarantee that security and anonymity are the highest considerations. You can connect directly through your operating system’s built-in tools, and they have extensive guides as to how to do this. They support the latest encryption protocols, and support P2P file sharing and torrenting. They have only one connection type, and do not only offer certain features to higher payers, but this service doesn’t come with a lot of features in any case.

This is a simple VPN connection, with simple features. We recommend you check out our review of the most top-rated VPNs, all of which have the very best features on the market, including security, speed, and server network.

I bought the lifetime deal more than 5 years ago and have been using TigerVPN since then. Over time it was reliable and always gave me fair speeds. The applications are good and configuration without using them is also made very easy.

TigerVPN has provided me with Years of Quality Service. I Signed up from one of the Web deals years ago and have not looked back. I have no complaints about the product or the service. One of the keys for me is that the service needs to be fast and I have never had speed issues with TigerVPN. The connections are rock solid. If you have not tried them, give them a try. Keep up the great work guys! Thank you.

They don't have a customer contact link on the website, their terms of service say lifetime means until they can't make a profit off you anymore, but other than that they are great! even better I have to check my wan address because it says I'm connected but not really...
