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 :)

TigerVPN allows users to subscribe for either 1 or 12 months for the same service. A 3 day money back guarantee is available. 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.

Reliability & Support 4.4 / 5.0

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.

Reliable Service

The subscription I purchased is a lifetime subscription and with that is a very limited amount of servers that I can connect to. While there are not many available to me, the service that each server has provided has been reliable.

    Amazing vpn

    the only and best vpn that allows the use of all countries like Argentina at a low cost. The truth is the best vpn that I have used and I will definitely use it again, And the test phase lasts very little.

      Best VPN tool out there

      TigerVPN is the best tool out there, it always works and I've never had any issues with the tool. Highly recommend this tool to anyone looking for a reliable VPN tool. I've purchased it in 2016 and never had any issues since then. I also purchased a lifetime subscription.
