Which VPN is better?

While most VPNs perform their security in much the same fashion, VyprVPN has a slightly different approach. Using Chameleon technology, VyprVPN effectively camouflages information by scrambling it to the extent that even the metadata is unrecognisable. Depending on your internet activity, this may be an advantage, or you may prefer the more straightforward approach of Private Internet Access, a US-based service that offers a highly flexible service that can be easily configured to suit each individual’s needs and preferences. In terms of location, VyprVPN wins hands down as it is situated in Switzerland, falling under their sympathetic privacy laws while PIA would battle to protect its users’ data from the US legal system. Similarly, PIA’s terms of service state that they do retain records of your personal basic data, even if they promise not to share them with any third parties.






 The Bottom Line

At a competitive price, PIA offers a reliable service for much less than VyprVPN, but the extra cash is well spent, considering VyprVPN’s impressive download speeds and effectual features. Both PIA and VyprVPN are worth considering if you are travelling and want to increase your internet security while also accessing geographically blocked content. PIA VPN doesn’t have the speed of VyprVPN but it does have a slicker interface that will appeal to new users. It’s a tough competition between these two VPNs but, in the end, VyprVPN clinches the deal with its privacy policy and power.
