Best VPNs by category
Both HideMyAss and VyprVPN have large global server networks and an impressive list of features. Both provide strong encryption, though VyprVPN is more committed to security. However, HideMyAss offers better price plans.
Even though both VPNs allow P2P and torrenting, VyprVPN permits torrenting on all servers, while HideMyAss allows torrenting only on specific servers. However, unlike VyprVPN, HideMyAss offers optimized servers for torrenting.
Both VPNs offer very simple, attractive, and easy-to-use apps for Windows which include a kill switch, server switching, and multi-protocol options. However, VyprVPN also includes the Chameleon option as an additional feature.
Users will find it very easy to use HideMyAss and VyprVPN’s client apps for Android, which both come with public wi-fi protection. VyprVPN offers a kill switch, but HideMyAss doesn’t. We also like VyprVPN’s option to select which apps to tunnel through the VPN connection.
The Mac apps provided by HideMyAss and VyprVPN are among the easiest to use, and both include all the features you need for a secure connection, such as a kill switch and DNS leak protection. VyprVPN allows you to filter which apps you want to use with the VPN.
HideMyAss runs on iOS 5+, while VyprVPN can be downloaded on iOS 9+. Both clients are user-friendly and function smoothly in the background. VyprVPN’s client app for iOS is spiced with extra features, including iPad compatibility and wi-fi security.
HideMyAss has 192 servers in USA, whereas VyprVPN has only 8. In addition, HideMyAss is more able to bypass US geoblocks to access Netflix, Hulu, and HBO. VyprVPN still struggles with accessing these services.
