Both of these products provide solid security and privacy at affordable rates, with a wide array of payment choices, including Bitcoin for both companies. Vypr provides a multitude of servers spread across a broad range of countries. With an even wider selection of servers in an equally impressive number of countries, TorGuard is outstanding. Both offer attentive 24-hour assistance, including chat and ticket support with quick response times. Speed is of no concern with either VPN, though VyprVPN is known to offer the fastest VPN service on the planet, so almost all streaming services, such as Netflix, work flawlessly. Both Vypr and TorGuard work with Windows, Android, IOS and Mac. Vypr shines with apps for home routers, smart televisions and Linux as well. Both products offer powerful encryption and privacy tools, such as stealth VPN from TorGuard and an innovative tool called Chameleon from Vypr.

No major complaints Their support is probably the best I've ever received, with responses within a few minutes. Their android app however needs some improvement with more frequent updates need, but the windows version seems to have no issues. Their recent anyconnect vpn service addition seems to work much faster than openvpn at its highest cypher setting.

Don't use if you want BBC I stopped using TorGuard after receiving this after signing up in June 2017.... "Thank you for contacting us. At the moment all of our shared servers have been blocked by BBC." Great set-up, easy interface and good speeds, but the above is a complete killer for me so no good.

Our testing of VyprVPN has shown it to be straightforward and enjoyable. Everything worked flawlessly and the software is very easy to get the hang of, even for new users of VPNs. VyprVPN has one noticeable advantage over its rivals. They have a technology called Chameleon, which is designed to reduce the recognizability of data to those who may want to intercept what you are doing, making this s

One of the best VPN services I tried, simple to use, comes with an app, plenty of servers to pick from! I had VyprVPN as part of my Giganews account. It's been great! I have a 100 Mbps download speed, and 10 Mbps upload, with fiber to the basement. I normally get about 90 Mbps download and 13 Mbps upload. With the VPN I get about 75 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload.

Not a good VPN if you care about privacy or torrenting The good: -Was able to watch Netflix in US, Australia, and New Zealand. The other countries I tried were blocked (including the UK) as Netflix detected them as a VPN The bad: (Phew, where to start?) -THEY ARE TRACKING YOU: VyprVPN tracks what you are doing while you're connected to their service despite the claim on their privacy statement "What Golden Frog Does Not Collect From VyprVPN Sessions: Does not log a user's traffic or the content of any communications." This is obviously false because: -COPYRIGHT NOTICES: If they detect you are torrenting, you will be sent a DMCA copyright infringement notice by email and your service will be blocked until you sign an affirmation that you will not do it again. Refusal to sign means your service will forever be blocked. -BAD CUSTOMER SUPPORT: After I was sent an email that I had downloaded copyrighted material and that my service was blocked, I contacted support via live chat telling them I wanted to cancel my service. I asked for a PARTIAL refund since there was still 20 days left of the month that I would not be using. I did not ask for a full refund of the month, just the unused portion of the 20 days left! Not an unreasonable request, I think. The support person told me they had a strict no-refund policy. After arguing back and forth about why I didn't want to sign their affirmation and that they were the ones blocking my use of their product, the customer service agent told me he was going to end the chat! I find their attitude was quite inflexible and not customer-friendly. -NO REFUNDS, EVER: My request for even a partial refund was denied even though they blocked my service.

 The Bottom Line

Daniel Krohn

Vypr is a league ahead of TorGuard. VyprVPN’s Chameleon security protocol thwarts almost any DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) analysis. This is crucial for users living under authoritative regimes such as China and Iran. Neither product keeps user logs and both offer a 30-day money back guarantee. With several levels of service offered for Vypr, the Pro and Premier version provide 3 additional security protocols L2TP/IPsec, Open VPN, and Chameleon. Both of these products are excellent choices for both security and anonymity, but with a few extra bells and important whistles, VyprVPN stands a cut above Torguard VPN.

Interestingly, if you compare VyprVPN with NordVPN, which is our top ranked vpn, you'll see that VyprVPN can learn a lot from NordVPN. Compare VyprVPN with NordVPN
