TigerVPN overview

TigerVPN is based in Slovakia and has been operating since 2011. It is an easy to use VPN provider that offers high-quality services and has several strong points. TigerVPN has servers in about 42 countries and about 62 cities, which make up more than 300 servers in general. While some other VPN service providers might offer more server locations, the number of countries available is quite good and will cover all of your basic needs for accessing geo-blocked content. Also, the VPN’s server speed is fast and in general - the speed is stable, consistent and reliable. 2 to 5 simultaneous connections are available, but strictly depend on the pricing plan.

TigerVPN is available on Mac, Windows, iOS and Android platforms and the installation process is quick and simple. The apps and software are very easy to understand and use, however, some users might miss advanced features,options and configuration. Multiple protocols are offered: OpenVPN, IPSec, PPTP and L2TP. The strongest encryption available is AES-256, which is considered to be a military-grade encryption and probably one of the strongest on the VPN market right now. What is interesting, TigerVPN has its own DNS server. This means that servers are being operated faster than usual and no 3rd party can access your private data. That being said, no Internet activity logs are kept, except some of the connection data (time stamps). Also, P2P traffic is allowed.

There are three pricing plans: Zen Tiger 1 month plan ($11.99/month), Strong Tiger 6 months plans ($8.33/month), Hero Tiger 1 year plan ($6.67/month). All of the pricing plans offer unlimited data and speed, priority support and Gigabit Network. There is only a slight difference in all of the three pricing plans, which mostly varies in simultaneous connections and a few premium options. The yearly plan also includes Shimo VPN manager, which helps to manage multiple VPN protocols as well as StickyPassword Premium (a license code for a password manager). Moreover, you can sign up for a free trial and get 500 MB of data usage. TigerVPN offers a 7-day money back guarantee. The payment methods include credit/debit cards, PayPal, BitCoin and more.

Customer support is one of the strongest TigerVPN’s points. Support options include live chat, ticketing system and a knowledge base. The knowledge base has troubleshooting, a FAQ section and manual setup guides. The articles are not overloaded with unnecessary information and are easy to understand and the setup guides are written in a step-by-step manner with screenshots are included. In general, customer support is very friendly, quick to respond and extremely helpful. An interesting feature is the reward system, which is called Karma rewards. Users can collect karma points by completing different challenges set up by TigerVPN and then they can redeem them for free VPN service periods or other freebies.

TigerVPN offers great services: strong encryption, great customer support, fast server speed. However, there are small details that do not let enjoy this VPN service provider fully. For example, a lack of advanced features, a bit expensive pricings plans. TigerVPN is a very good VPN and has a lot of potential to grow and develop further.
