Which VPN is better?

Both ExpressVPN and VyprVPN have a lot of great features. They can be used to access geo-restricted content, offer unlimited bandwidth and server switching, and are easy to install and use. They also include kill switches to safeguard users if their connection drops and are situated in countries where privacy is paramount (ExpressVPN is based in the British Virgin Islands and VyprVPN is based in Switzerland). In terms of general privacy and security however, ExpressVPN has the upper hand with military grade encryption and a strict no logging policy. VyprVPN is upfront with users about logging users’ IP addresses, connection start and stop time, and the total number of bytes used for 30 days. However, VyprVPN’s Chameleon technology makes it perfect to use in countries such as China. ExpressVPN has the greater number of server locations, servers, and IP addresses, however, VyprVPN allows more simultaneous connections with five to ExpressVPN’s three.

When put to test, ExpressVPN lives up to its name. It’s our first choice when it comes to streaming media content online.

Overrated vpn service Really overrated and overpriced vpn service. The speed are really poor especially with US servers. The only thing customer service offers is to get refunded instead of trying to solve your problem. They should really pay more attention to speeds as rated very good and sometimes take a look to chats what customer guys are typing

Those looking to get a VPN to unblock web content will love VyprVPN. But if security and privacy are your top priorities – despite having some excellent features – VyprVPN leaves a bit to be desired. If the reason you need a VPN is because you’re traveling to China and want access to the free web, VyprVPN is an excellent choice. That’s because of its proprietary Chameleon technology. Chameleon

About vyprvpn usage After several months of use, the connection speed and usage are usually very good. Sometimes, under certain special circumstances, it may become difficult to connect. However, the software has been continuously improving, and the use experience will be better.

Don't recommend! Spent weeks working with tech support, never worked right on my Windows 10 laptop. Would disconnect and then not be able to reconnect without rebooting the computer and the router. Worked OK on my Android phone but had to manually connect each time I went on WiFi.

Both vendors have apps that are easy to use and allow users to surf with anonymity. VyprVPN users benefit from its Chameleon technology, making it usable in China. However, ExpressVPN is pushed in front with its greater number of privacy and security features, as well as more servers and server locations. The fact that it supports P2P / torrenting, as well as offering the faster and more stable connection ensures that it is the winner.  More Info
