VyprVPN accounts include multiple VPN protocols so you can choose your preferred level of encryption, speed, and protection. We offer OpenVPN™, IKEv2, L2TP/IPsec, PPTP and Chameleon™.
PPTP is a fast, easy-to-use protocol with a simple setup process. It is a good choice if OpenVPN™ isn't supported by your device.
L2TP/IPsec is a protocol built into most desktop, phone, and tablet devices. We support both L2TP and IKEv2 for IPSec on select platforms providing the highest performance - fast, secure and reliable. It is a good choice if OpenVPN™ isn't supported by your device and security is top priority.
OpenVPN™ is the recommended protocol for desktops including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Highest performance - fast, secure and reliable.
Our Chameleon™ technology uses the unmodified OpenVPN 256-bit protocol and scrambles the metadata to prevent DPI, VPN blocking and throttling.
