Psiphon and Freedom-IP VPN are relatively limited VPN services compared to TorGuard. TorGuard has dedicated apps for all major platforms, while Psiphon and Freedom-IP VPN have to be configured manually and are only compatible with a limited number of platforms. And even though all three providers offer advanced security capabilities, Psiphon and Freedom-IP VPN both have questionable privacy policies.
For torrenting, there are two points you should focus on: privacy and speed. Unfortunately, Freedom-IP VPN and Psiphon have issues in both of these areas. On the other hand, TorGuard has everything you need for a smooth torrenting experience. This includes the necessary protocols, good connection speeds, and a reliable level of privacy.
Freedom-IP VPN doesn’t have a dedicated Windows app. You can set up the VPN manually, but that leaves you with very limited features, and the setup process will feel like a hassle if you’re a VPN beginner. Psiphon has a free Windows app, but it's less reliable than the TorGuard Windows app and has far fewer features.
Psiphon is at its best on Android devices, with a native paid pro version of its free Android app – an option not available on any other platform. However, even the paid pro app lacks the advanced features needed to fully compete with TorGuard's Android app. Freedom-IP VPN comes in third place here, due to the lack of a client for Android. Manual configuration is possible, but that means limited features and a VPN that's harder to get around than its two competitors.
Freedom-IP VPN doesn’t have a native app for MacOS, but allows you to set up the connection manually through third party apps, such as Tunnelbrick. This means you'll get a very basic service with limited features. Psiphon has a dedicated MacOS app, but it's also very basic. On the other hand, TorGuard offers a reliable app for MacOS devices, with all of the VPN's impressive features and capabilities.
Both TorGuard and Psiphon have dedicated apps for iOS. However, Psiphon's iOS app is only available with the free plan, not the paid pro version. The Psiphon app is therefore limited in its features and capabilities compared to the TorGuard app. Freedom-IP VPN doesn’t have a native iOS app, which means you would have to set up the VPN manually. So while Freedom-IP VPN might have reliable security capabilities, its features are very limited on iOS devices.
All three providers operate servers within the US, but TorGuard has the most US servers and server locations. If you’re trying to access geoblocked American streaming content, such as HBO Go, then TorGuard would be your most reliable option. We aren’t saying that Freedom-IP VPN and Psiphon won't unblock the US content you're after, but TorGuard's network is better equipped to do consistently.
