Based in Slovakia, tigerVPN knows how to brand itself with quirky tiger themes and roars with lots of perks, even if it’s missing out on a few features. tigerVPN takes advantage of its location in Slovakia (no data retention laws) and doesn’t keep activity logs. Using military-grade encryption clawed with OpenVPN and running their own private DNS servers is admirable for privacy-concerned folks, but on the downside, it doesn’t have a kill switch, double VPN, or Post Forwarding. On the other hand, tigerVPN also has a hefty server network at strategic places providing fast and reliable speeds with unlimited bandwidth on all paid subscriptions. We didn’t have streaming problems, but some services like Netflix can be accessed through certain servers only, while others like Hulu and BBC iPlayer are, unfortunately, inaccessible with tigerVPN.
Speed determines how fast content uploads, so if you're torrenting or streaming, you want the speed to be somewhat identical to your regular internet speed. Since a VPN encrypts your data, it usually takes a bit longer to send your data back and forth, which can slow down your connection. However, if your ISP deliberately slows down your connection (also known as throttling) a VPN might increase your internet speed. Testing a VPN is somewhat pointless because new servers pop up and affect speed. Your speed can also differ according to your location, so your speed test might not match ours. Having said that, we tested the speed in numerous locations to provide you with the average.
No tricks with this VPN. Installing tigerVPN is a seamless experience. It only takes moments to download and fewer to setup on your system. The interface is not only intuitive, but also as quirky as the website, except with orange hues and white to match the tiger logos. You can easily navigate through it, connect to servers, and get taskbar notifications when you connect, disconnect, or make any changes. Moreover, a good F.A.Q is a comprehensive one and tigerVPN lives up to this statement. There’s an efficient and extensive F.A.Q section on the website for self-assistance with any service issue.
We personally test the customer support team of every VPN we review. This means asking technical question through the live chat feature (where applicable) and measuring the response time for email questions. Whether you need to connect to a specific server, change your security protocol, or configure a VPN on your router, finding a VPN with quality customer support should be important to you.
