Multiple security protocols are supported by TorVPN such as OpenVPN, PPTP, and SSH tunneling. The encryption provided by the OpenVPN protocol goes up to 4096-bit which is the strongest level of encryption available.
Unfortunately TorVPN lacks some important features such as a kill switch and its own client software. If it wasn’t for that and the limited network of servers, TorVPN would have a completely different position among its competitors.
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.
TorVPN has 11 servers in 8 countries.
Since TorVPN doesn’t have its own client software, setting it up is a little more complicated than VPN providers that have their client software. After you’re done with the standard registration procedure, you’ll have to download a third party application such as OpenVPN GUI to be able to use it to connect to the TorVPN servers. Even though using this application is not difficult, it takes more time and includes more steps to be able to establish a VPN connection. On the upside TorVPN provides detailed tutorials on how to use this application to connect to its servers as well as links to download the application and links to download the configuration file. Some users might not mind doing the extra effort as long as the service itself is reliable. Other users prefer the easier simpler way and seek VPN providers with their own client applications. If you don’t mind the additional configuration steps, then this VPN would be worth a try.
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.
