Our Verdict

VyprVPN offers a three-day free trial on iOS and Android devices. To use VyprVPN for free on other devices, and for up to 30 days, you can take advantage of the service's 30-day money-back guarantee.

VyprVPN usually costs $5.00 a month on a year-long plan, but you can also trial VyprVPN for free.

There are two different VyprVPN free trials available:

The difference is mostly to do with billing. With a 100% free trial, you aren’t charged until after the trial period has expired.

With a money-back guarantee, you pay for the subscription up front, but then you can claim a full, risk-free refund within the first month.

Free Trial Length Available On Credit Card Details Payment Upfront
3 days iOS & Android Required No How to claim
30 days All Devices Required Yes How to claim

In this guide, we’ll walk you through simple, step-by-step instructions for each option so that you can trial using VyprVPN for free.

How to Get a VyprVPN Free Trial on Mobile

The proper VyprVPN free trial lasts three days and is only available to iOS and Android users. It’s shorter than other VPN free trials, but it does give you a good idea of how VyprVPN works.

To claim the free trial, you need to download the VyprVPN app directly from the Google Play or App Store. You’ll then be automatically signed up for the free trial period.

Make sure to cancel the trial before the three days are up, though. Otherwise, you’ll be charged for the subscription.

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to get a VyprVPN free trial on:

How to Get a VyprVPN Free Trial on PC, Mac & Other Devices

If three days isn’t enough to fully test the VyprVPN, or you want to use the VPN on other devices, then VyprVPN’s money-back guarantee is the best option for you.

The refund guarantee is completely risk-free, and lets you use VyprVPN free of charge for up to 30 days.

Before the 30 days are up, simply request a full refund from the VyprVPN customer support team. It’s a “no questions asked” refund policy, and we’ve always received our money back within seven to 10 days.

To use VyprVPN for free for up to 30 days:

  1. Go to VyprVPN and click “Get VyprVPN”. Don’t go through the Google Play Store or iTunes/App Store because you then won’t be eligible for the money-back guarantee.
  2. Choose a payment plan and enter your details to create an account. We’d recommend selecting the 1-month plan because it’s the cheapest up front cost.
  3. Download the VyprVPN app onto the device(s) you want to protect. You’re allowed up to five simultaneous connections with one subscription.
  4. Once the app is downloaded and installed, you’re ready to start browsing privately and safely. You’ll have 30 days of unrestricted access to VyprVPN’s servers. Read our complete guide to what you can do with a VPN for ideas.
  5. Before the 30 days are over, you’ll need to cancel and claim your refund. If you used PayPal to pay, don’t initiate the refund through PayPal, as this will just delay the process.
  6. Go to the VyprVPN Customer Support Live Chat. You can also email, if you’d prefer.
  7. Click the Support box in the bottom-right corner and type in “refund”. Ignore the guide links, and click on the ‘Live Chat’ button at the bottom.
  8. Input your details and select ‘Start Chat’.
  9. You’ll be taken to a VyprVPN customer support agent who will process your refund. They may ask you some questions about why you’re cancelling your subscription, but they won’t reject your request as long as you’re inside the 30-day refund period.

EXPERT TIP: VyprVPN ends your access to the service when you cancel your subscription. Wait for as long as possible before claiming your refund to maximize the trial period.

Should You Use VyprVPN?

VyprVPN has an impressive self-owned server network, and an extensive in-house DNS service. Its also got fast speeds for a mid-tier service.

However, its new owners, Certida, have implemented some disappointing privacy measures. First, the service no longer has a zero-logs privacy policy. It actually doesn’t have a VPN privacy policy at all now, just an auto-generated website policy.

Second, VyprVPN hasn’t had an independent audit in 6 years. Most trustworthy VPNs implement yearly audits to prove they’re keeping up with privacy and security standards in the VPN industry.

Sadly, in our VyprVPN tests, its inability to unblock US Netflix, HBO Max, or Hulu also lets it down. While it’s certainly improved over the years, VyprVPN’s speeds are still considerably slower than most of our top-rated VPNs.

Overall, we wouldn’t recommend VyprVPN. It lacks essential features, like a clear privacy policy, a kill switch on iOS, and independent audits. Despite its fast speeds and history of being privacy-friendly, it’s still not the best value for money once the free trial is over.
