Vypr VPN Review
VyprVPN is a relatively new player on the Virtual Private Network (VPN) market, but is not inferior to many of its competitors that have been participating for some time.

Compatibility with operating systems
A very strong point of VyprVPN is the fact that their VPN software is well constructed and very easy to use. The software also includes a test function that allows the ping to be tested against the various servers in order to find the fastest servers. A real download and upload speed test is missing. The software works with the following operating systems:
VyperVPN and Netflix, Hulu and other services
VyperVPN has developed its own VPN encryption format, called Chameleon. This is based on OpenVPN, but the metadata is also encrypted. As a result, the increasing Deep Packet inspection of VPN traffic is bypassing governments and online video services such as Netflix. Effectively, this means that your VPN connection is not recognized as such and you have less chance of blocking your VPN server.
VyprVPN and Privacy
VyperVPN indicates to take the privacy of its customers seriously. That is why they manage their own VPN server network and have their own DNS servers that you as a customer can use as standard. This prevents so-called DNS leaks and your anonymity is further guaranteed than with many other VPN providers. VyperVPN promises that they do not keep logs on their DNS servers and do not create blockades. The chance of DNS man-in-the-middle attacks also decreases.
Customer service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This goes by chat, e-mail or per ticket (if you already have an account). The chat is answered quickly, friendly and accurately.
