- Torrenting: Gabe has been in a major torrenting phase lately, but VyprVPN didn’t always make torrenting easy. They used to have language in their policy discouraging torrenting and any form of copyright infringement through downloading or sharing files on their network. But now, the no traffic logging policy means they are taking a hands-off approach, and no longer discourage any specific activities related to downloads.
- Kill switch: The kill switch is Gabe’s own favorite feature of any VPN, and almost all of VPNs have one these days. It’s just so Bond-esque and sounds like something that would go inside of a spy’s cuff links or lipstick. And what it does is helpful— the kill switch automatically shuts down all of our windows and tabs on the web on the rare occasion that the VPN stops working.
- No leaks: We have trust issues. So even when a company says they aren’t logging anything, there’s one thing we always check, and that’s whether they’re leaking our information anyway. We’ve performed multiple leak tests with DNSLeakTest.com, all of which showed that VyprVPN was not leaking our information, otherwise known as our domain names or the websites we’ve visited. We also performed a WebRTC leak test that showed no leaks on our IP address either. Phew! Otherwise we’d have to talk about that one in therapy.
- Beating anti-VPN blockers: VPN-blocking is actually a common practice in countries like China and Russia, but also on university, school, or corporate networks. This is also called the Chameleon protocol.2 It’s a self-developed OpenVPN protocol with 256-bit encryption that will blend in with regular Internet traffic to defeat restrictions and blocking. It does this by encapsulating OpenVPN traffic behind regular HTTPS encryption. The majority of websites now use HTTPS encryption, so it’s practically never blocked.
