Each of VyprVPN's plans includes PPTP as the baseline encryption protocol, and the only one which is available to subscribers of the Basic VyprVPN plan. While it is a good method, it is not the best. Experts agree that OpenVPN is the most secure of currently-available encryption protocols. OpenVPN is available for the Pro and Premier plans and is recommended by the Review Team. iOS devices are not compatible with OpenVPN protocols, but the L2TP and IPsec protocols deliver similar results for iOS users, with L2TP being the closest to OpenVPN. These protocols are available for subscribers of the Premier and Pro plans only.
VyprVPN is transparent in their policies and gives explicit examples online about their collection, storage and destruction of customer data.
VyprVPN keeps some data for 30 days, which includes:
- User's source IP address
- VyprVPN IP address used for sessions
- Total traffic (which is unlimited and unthrottled)
- Start/stop times of VPN sessions
There are several reasons which session data is kept by Golden Frog, which include - troubleshooting, billing issue resolution, maintaining compliance with the TOS and handling crimes which have been committed while users were online with a VPN session.
With all of this, it is important to know data which is not kept or logged when using VyprVPN tunnels to connect to the internet. User traffic and communications are not collect, nor is a deep inspection of traffic (unless requested by the user for firewall information).
The customer service department for Gold Frog's VyprVPN excels in both availability and quality. The company offers several methods for which customers to receive assistance - online chat, knowledge base and online ticket system. Each of the methods work well, with response times for the online chat being minimal, if not instant. The ticket system yields a response within hours in most cases.
VypyrVPN has extra features which are available for their Premier and Pro subscribers such as a powerful firewall, the NAT Firewall. This firewall blocks a full spectrum of hacker and bot attacks, which are more likely to occur when using a wireless router to connect to the internet.
VyprVPN also offers a proprietary software product, Chameleon, which bypasses VPN blocking. As more people are using VPNs to connect to the internet and have access to sites which are blocked in certain countries, technology has increased to arrest VPN traffic and block it as well. With Chameleon, user traffic can pass through VPN software blocking products. Use of Chameleon is only available for subscribers of the Premier and Pro plans.
