Golden Frog VyprVPN VPN Service – Browse The Web Privately

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 businesses.

Since I am listed on both companies Affiliates programs this review will focus on Golden Frog VPN Service plan called: ‘Vyprvpn premium‘ 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”.

When Software is in idle mode, meaning not connected to any server you will see Country Code in red colour specifying current geographic location along with device public IP Address.

Connecting to Server

After a connection to the server is made, the client automatically switches colour 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 the “Connection Log” Screen.

   Final Words

  • Test results may vary according to the following conditions: Server Loads, ISP, etc.
  • Switching between VPN Servers worked fast and smooth.
  • The 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.
