Protects your Internet traffic with encryption using various protocols: PPTP, OpenVPN or Chameleon. Prevent third-party DNS logging and censorship with the help of the utility's DNS server VyprDNS. Provides the Kill Switch option to automatically block all Internet and network traffic when the program is disconnected or disabled.
VyprVPN can help you navigate the web while preserving your privacy and sensitive data from intruders and information-gathering sites. What the program really does is to create a virtual private network (widely known as VPN), which means that the traffic between your computer and the Internet is encrypted and rerouted through VyprVPN servers. Thus, your ISP cannot trace your activities and the recipient servers cannot know your IP address.
The program is quite easy to use as there is not much to do in order to start rerouting your traffic. Fortunately, there are more than 70 servers distributed worldwide to which you can connect with just a few clicks. It is great that the tool can ping them and provide you with a report of their response time so that the fastest and most convenient servers can be bookmarked.
Once a VPN is established, you can view the remote server name, your IP address, the connection time and the protocol being used. Likewise, the tool shows transfer speed in real time. As to protocols, you will probably be glad to hear that various are supported. These include OpenVPN, L2TO/IPsec, and PPTP. My favorite is definitely Chameleon, which is, in my opinion, the most effective in masking the generated traffic and evading VPN blocking.
Just like other VPN services, there cannot be an absolute guarantee that the service providers are not gathering any kind of information about your activities, a risk you always have to consider before deciding to use a VPN.
All in all, VyprVPN is definitely one of the options to take into consideration when you need to bypass some kinds of Internet access restrictions, such as those imposed by your local ISP or even by the endpoint servers. It also provides excellent protection when you use public Wi-Fi services.
