Compatibility with operating systems
A very strong point of VyprVPN is the fact that their VPN software is well put together and is very easy to use. The software also contains a test function with which the ping to the different servers can be tested in order to find the fastest servers. A real download and upload speed test is missing. The software works with the following operating systems:
- Mac OS X
- Windows XP
- Windows Vista
- Windows 7
- Windows 8
- Windows 10
VyperVPN and Netflix, Hulu and other services
VyperVPN has developed its own VPN encryption format, called Chameleon. This is based on OpenVPN, but the metadata is also encrypted. As a result, the increasing Deep packet inspection of VPN traffic by governments and online video services such as Netflix can be circumvented. This effectively means that your VPN connection is not recognized as such and you have less chance of blocking your VPN server.
I tested this service in practice and with Chameleon from VyperVPN we were able to watch Netflix USA without Netflix noticing. Unique in this time.
VyprVPN and Privacy
VyperVPN says it takes its customers’ privacy seriously. That is why they manage their own VPN server network and they have their own DNS servers that you can use as a standard customer. This prevents so-called DNS leaks and your anonymity is further guaranteed than with many other VPN providers. VyperVPN promises that they will not keep logs on their DNS servers and will not create any blockages. The chance of DNS man-in-the-middle attacks also decreases.
VyperVPN logs the use of their VPN for up to 30 days. This will look at which VPN server you have connected to, for how long and how much data has been sent. The data itself and other metadata is not logged. In addition, it is not recorded which websites / IP addresses the VPN server connects to. As a result, it is impossible to ascertain what kind of internet traffic has taken place. With DMCA notice and takedown requests, the VPN account is temporarily frozen but no user data is passed on. Claims from the police, governments and secret services are also not being accepted, unless there is a court order.
Customer service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is done by chat, email or per ticket (if you already have an account). The chat is answered quickly, friendly and accurately.
GoldenFrog (the company that owns VyprVPN) maintains its own server infrastructure, and uses high speed server clusters. The advantage of this is that higher speeds are achieved and fewer broken connections are detected.
VyprVPN is one of the faster VPN services that we have tested. Many servers in and around the Netherlands manage to reach 50-100 Mbit. Servers in America come out around 50 Mbit. These are of course snapshots, but give an indication of the expected speeds from the Netherlands. In practice, this means that it was no problem to stream HD videos and watch Netflix via a US VPN server in high resolution.
In conclusion, VyprVPN is a good VPN provider with fast servers worldwide and a large choice of IP addresses and countries to connect to. In addition, with its Chameleon VPN encryption, VyperVPN has a unique asset in its hands so that your VPN connection is not recognized and you can, for example, view the American Netflix from the Netherlands (or any other country).
The three-day money-back option also makes this provider worth considering.
