What is a VPN used for?

VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) can be great tools when browsing the Internet as they provide safety and anonymity. A VPN can especially help you in countries with Internet restrictions, for example, the vast majority of Chinese people use them to bypass strict censorship.

 VyprVPN

As you can see, VPNs make it possible to access websites that you wouldn't be able to reach otherwise. Many people use them to watch Netflix when visiting countries where his service is unavailable.

Another perk is having full anonymity online. VPN works like a virtual tunnel between your computer and the Internet. In this tunnel, all the information is safely encrypted, meaning that nobody can monitor your online activity, not even the government, your Internet provider, or any cyber criminals.

The features of VyprVPN

Pros Cons Verdict
High-level security Doesn't block ads  A decent choice for those who care about anonymity    
Allows P2P Average speed   
Highly compatible High price
Kill Switch
Limited free trial

There are many statements on the official website, claiming that VyprVPN is the best in regard to speed, privacy, and other areas. We investigated the features and here are the results.

Easy-to-use UI

One really positive thing that can be pointed out is the User Interface of the desktop application. Even though the program's window is quite compact, it has easy-to read text – the font is quite big and the red background makes the white letters extremely visible.

There is a feature to mark you favorite servers for future use. Additionally, you can see the connection speed of the servers by ping and choose the fastest one.

Speed

The developers of VyprVPN claim that this Virtual Private Network is the fastest on the market. However, our experts have encountered other fast VPNs like NordVPN or ExpressVPN. In order to check, whether these claims are true, you can use an Internet speed test. In this way, you can see if the VPN slows down your speed. It is often the case that VPNs reduce the connection speed because the connection has to go a longer way than usual to reach the server. 

The thing is that VyprVPN will reduce your connection speed, but it is essential to find out, how much. We found out that the decrease is similar to the market's average – the latency is increased by 17.6 percent. Of course, there are services that increase latency only by a few percent, but this is a bit rare, and VyprVPN won't bother you with big delays. However, it isn't actually the fastest VPN available, to the contrary to its claims.

No third parties

All the servers that you use with VyprVPN are secure because no third parties are involved. The developers use only their own servers so that no information would leak. Some other Virtual Private Network companies pay third parties to host servers because it might be cheaper, but it also compromises privacy.

Security

The level of security is rather high when you use this VPN and can be compared to the security level of AirVPN. Three security protocols are supported, which are OpenVPN, PPTP, and L2TP/IPsec. You can choose which one you want to use when browsing. The safest one is L2TP/IPsec because data is encapsulated twice. It is also the slowest due to the high encryption level.

Compatibility

VyprVPN is extremely versatile when it comes to compatibility. The app can be used with a wide range of operating systems and devices, including Windows, Android, Mac, iOS, Router, QNAP, Blackphone, Anonabox, Linux, and even TV.

Kill Switch

There is a feature called Kill Switch that you can find in the application. If you activate it, it will disconnect your from the Internet the moment your VPN stops working due to disconnection.

In other words, your IP address will never be accidentally exposed when you use Torrent sites or any other pages that you don't want anyone to know about. After all, anonymity is one of the primary goals of any VPN.

The pricing system

The VyprVPN price is quite high, and its pricing system is not as flexible as of some other VPN providers, for example, AirVPN or VPN Unlimited. If you buy a subscription for 1 month, you will pay $9.95, which is a really high price for VPN services for one device only.

The yearly payment plan offers a better monthly rate of $5, which accumulates to $60 per year. This is a better deal if you are planning on using it for a longer period of time.

The final verdict

Even though the prices for VyprVPN are on the higher end of the spectrum, the service that you get for that price is quite decent. The level of security and anonymity is quite high and there are a lot of additional features.
