"VyprVPN Free Secure VPN for Windows"

Overview

VyprVPN for Windows is the VPN client for the VyprVPN service from Golden Frog. The software has been created in-house by Golden Frog.

The virtual private network service has access to over 50 global locations via 700+ servers using over 200,000 IP addresses. Plenty of countries are available in Europe, North America, Asia, Oceania, and with Central and South American locations included too.

The user can select the VPN protocol that they prefer to use, such as PPTP, OpenVPN, L2TP, and Chameleon, and pick between the locations. As a result, traffic is encrypted and routes privately from the current location to the VPN server whereupon it is decrypted.

Throttling by internet service providers can be removed by the encrypted of traffic. There are no download caps, server switching fees or other restrictions that can prevent the normal browsing and the service aims to provide one of the fastest, non-interrupted secure VPNs on the market.

The service features a no logging policy for improved privacy. There is also a NAT Firewall options for extra security.

Apps are available for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS, with support for Linux too.

There is a free trial with all three plans. The paid plans include Basic, Pro and Premier. One, two or 3 simultaneous connections is the main difference between the plans, with the cheapest plan being restricted to only PPTP connections.
