VyprVPN works on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, TV and routers while Buffered is built for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Linux. In terms of location, VyprVPN has a bigger footprint than Buffered VPN. The VyprVPN app delivers the capability to manage which device in your network you want on the VPN and which you want to keep off. Other aspects of the app include change of server for each device and change of protocol too. Buffered VPN offers switching between UDP and TCP protocols while solely running on OpenVPN. Encryption is similar on both products. VyprVPN has developed its own proprietary protocol over the OpenVPN protocol with the added feature of scrambling of packet metadata. Buffered VPN uses old but efficient Blowfish encryption. Both VyprVPN and Buffered provide a 30-day money-back guarantee.

US-based VyprVPN comes out on top on all fronts. Hungary-based Buffered comes quite close on features, but is left behind by VyprVPNs better pricing. VyprVPN has a simpler usage which puts it into top gear and races ahead of Buffered VPN in this tight matchup. With its proprietary technology and larger number of server locations, VyprVPN provides coverage in all restricted locations. Scoring high in ease-of-use, VyprVPN has a top-notch product, one that is offered with a highly-competitive price markup.
