VyprVPN runs its own VPN network entirely in-house in order to ensure it offers maximum security. The company is based in Switzerland, putting it outside both US and EU jurisdiction when it comes to responding to data requests. However, its servers are located in a number of other countries. Secure cloud storage is included in most of its packages too. There’s no throttling of speed, so it’s a good service for accessing online streaming services with no interruptions.
There are three options giving different levels of service and numbers of simultaneous connections and so on. Packages are not fixed-length and can be billed monthly or annually, with a saving on price if you opt for the annual option. If you want to try it out, there’s a free option that has a one-time 500MB data limit and allows two simultaneous connections.
The website and the service are both easy to use and come with software that’s simple to download and install. If you do have problems, there’s live chat support available or you can email the support team with a guaranteed rely time of 15 minutes.
VyprVPN recently launched their own proprietary technology called Chameleon for enhanced security and more effective circumventing of restrictions. Currently Chameleon is only compatible with Windows, Mac, Android and your router.

VyprVPN logs data for 30 days, but it doesn’t retain host names. Because no third parties are involved in the network, your data is protected all the way through the process. It also uses its own DNS servers in the same country as the VPN server, which ensures that you receive the correct online experience for a particular country.
The Basic package only supports the PPTP protocol and has no firewall. Go for the Pro or Premier options and a NAT firewall is included, and there’s support for OpenVPN, L2TP/Ipsec and Chameleon protocols.
For added security and privacy, there is a Kill Switch feature which blocks all traffic to your device when your VPN connection drops. You can enable/disable this feature in the preferences.
VyprVPN is present in 65 countries and in 73 cities with 700+ servers, giving its users access to over 200,000 IPs.
