Golden Frog VyprVPN VPN Service Review

Giganews partnered with Golden Frog to bring customers the extra benefits of adding VPN and Online storage to their accounts, providing bundled packages for consumers and business. Since I am listed on both companies Affiliates programs this review will focus on Golden Frog VPN Service plan called: “vyprvpn premier” bundled with a nice selection of features.

Golden Frog’s VyprVPN plans offer lots of software support, documentation and high level encryption. Their Chameleon technology uses unmodified OpenVPN 256-bit protocol, which scrambles the metadata to prevent DPI, VPN is blocking and throttling, very useful option to use in countries with “high level censorship”.

VyprVPN  Plans:

  1. basic.
  2. pro.
  3. premier ( Note : Highest level ).

Connecting to Server

After connection to the server is made, the client automatically switches color to brown with related country code. For example “SUI” is for Server located in Switzerland (shown in the screenshot below) Additional connection info can be found in “Connection Log” Screen.

   Final Words

  • Test results may vary according to following conditions : Server Loads, ISP etc.
  • Switching between VPN Servers worked fast and smooth.
  • General results were very good. I did experience slowness using Chameleon protocol, My guess is that it’s maybe related to ISP throttling or routing issues.
