VyprVPN – a secure personal VPN service Review

Old No Comments on VyprVPN – a secure personal VPN service Review 34

So what exactly is VyprVPN?

Well it’s a secure personal VPN subscription service from Golden Frog.  VyprVPN  provides secure, encrypted connections to the Internet to protect user privacy and security.

Where is it applicable?

Well VyprVPN has number of applications. One of them is that VyprVPN Secures Your Internet Connection. Hackers and third-party snoops can easily view your IMs, e-mails and financial transactions when you browse  without a personal VPN. VyprVPN encryptsInternet connections on various network types like Wi-Fi Hotspots,  Cellular Networks and Private wired networks.

Platform Versions

VyprVPN is available on both computer and mobile platforms. The mobile platforms are currently Android and iOS.  Computer platforms that are supported include Windows, Mac and Linux.

Registration Process

It took me a couple of seconds to register. VyprVPN sign up form requires only your email and password unlike other services which require you to provide a lot of information.

Control Panel

Control Panel

You are able to login and access the control panel after creating an account with VyprVPN.  It’s quite user friendly and on your left (at the time of writing this review) are download links to download
VyprVPN for windows, mac, iOS and android.

Download Process

VyprVPN is a piece of software that you can download and install on your computer. The windows executable file is about 3 MBs only and can be downloaded through your browser.

Installation Process

VyprVPN downloads extra files off the internet during installation process and the installation process takes  about 3 minutes only. This does not mean that the downloaded executable file is a download manager.

Using VyprVPN

Connection

A simple login window pops up as soon as you launch VyprVPN. All you have to do next is enter your login credentials and then it connects you to a server. My vyprVPN connected me to a Turkey Server. If you are not satisfied with the server you are automatically connected to then you can choose your prefered or favorite server location.

VyprVPN also automatically reconnects you to the server of your choice if you disconnected from it during the last
session.

On the flip side

Apparently, there is  no single Golden Frog server in Africa. I noticed this when choosing my server location amongst North America, Europe, Oceania, South America and Asia. Forks from Africa need not to worry because they can still choose the closest location among the locations above.

My Verdict

Some countries monitor what you do online or prevent you from accessing certain websites. In case you come from one of those countries, VyprVPN can be your solution as it also reduces online security threats.
