When it comes to customer support, the VPN Baron could do better, as now it is lagging behind. They do not offer support through the much convenient and responsive live chat system, but have an email support as well as a Member Area. There is also nothing that indicates that the few given support contact options work 24/7/365.

Support - highlights
  • Member Area support
  • No live chat
  • No 24x7x365 support
Support - Conclusions
VPN Baron's customer support is very limited and mostly restricted to the Member Area only besides the knowledgebase.
