TigerVPN Pros:

TigerVPN Cons:

With fun branding, TigerVPN catches the attention straight away. So, I was looking forward to seeing what they had in their locker! With that in mind, read on to discover my thoughts on this VPN.

Overview

TigerVPN was created by Tiger at Work & Co in 2011. The company is based in Slovakia. 

So, what is Slovakia like as a VPN jurisdiction? It is a pretty good place for a VPN! There are no data retention laws in place, which is excellent news on the privacy front.

Where are TigerVPN’s servers located?

At the moment, TigerVPN has 300 servers, which are spread across 42 different countries. This is a small-to-moderate server network.

One thing that I do like about TigerVPN is that it has moved into some spaces that are underserved at present like Turkey. 

They also have four servers in South America, whereas a lot of VPNs only have one, and it is usually in Brazil.

On the whole, though, it is still a small server network, and so you are going to find that there are some places that are not adequately represented. Africa is a prime example, with there being one server in South Africa only.

Speeds

When it comes to speed, I have to say that I have been mostly impressed with TigerVPN. Most of the time, the upload speeds and download speeds have been excellent.

The latency is mediocre, and I would say that there are some inconsistencies with speed; performance can differ from time-to-time. Overall, though, there’s not too much to grumble about here!

Security

On the security front, TigerVPN has all of the standard security protocols in place that you would expect from a VPN.

You can choose from various protocols, including PPTP, IPSec L2TP, and OpenVPN. As most of you will know, I am a big fan of OpenVPN and I always recommend this as my protocol of choice, so I was satisfied to see that this is one of the options that is available. 

Aside from this, AES-256 encryption is used, which is the industry standard and considered pretty much unbreakable. 

Does TigerVPN collect logs?

TigerVPN has stated that it is a no-logs company. However, there are many VPN businesses that state this and the reality is a different story, so I had to do a bit of digging. 

Once I started digging into the detailed privacy policy further, I was able to see that some user data is stored. However, it is not data that relates to the browsing activity directly and so the information could not be used to identify you.

Ease of use

Ease of use is not a problem with this VPN. It is easy to sign-up with TigerVPN. You simply follow the typical sequence that you would expect, i.e. enter your email, then your password, and make your payment. Pretty easy, right?

Installing the right client for your device is just as easy, and it will only take a few minutes until you have the dashboard staring back at you. 

It is like most of the other VPNs out there in the sense that you will have a list of locations, a connection button, a settings box, and a favorite’s pane.

Torrenting

If you are looking for a VPN for torrenting purposes, you will be happy to know that TigerVPN permits file-sharing. In fact, there are even servers that have been optimized specifically for this purpose. 

P2P torrenting is allowed on the majority of the servers. However, the company does ask that you do not engage in any P2P torrenting on their servers within the United States.

Unblock streaming services

Streaming is one area where I have seen TigerVPN improve over the years. Not so long ago, I would have said that the streaming performance of TigerVPN was pretty average. However, they have certainly taken strides forward and I can tell that this is an area they have been working on.

I have had no trouble accessing Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Netflix with TigerVPN. I have tried different servers, and all of them were successful.

One streaming service that it cannot unblock, though, is BBC iPlayer. I have tried it on the UK servers, and I can’t get through, so do keep this in mind if you are looking for a VPN primarily for streaming purposes.

Compatibility

TigerVPN is compatible with all of the major platforms, including all of the following:

  • Android
  • iOS
  • Linux
  • Mac OS X
  • Windows

It is great to see that Linux is supported, as this is not always the case with all of the VPNs out there.

This means you can use TigerVPN on virtually any laptop or desktop computer, as well as tablets and smartphones.

You can check out my “reviews by device” if you would like more information on the best VPN for a specific device.

Games consoles and streaming devices

As latency is not ideal, I would not really recommend TigerVPN for gamers. You can set this VPN up on your games consoles, so it is an option to consider, but I think you will find better performing solutions out there, such as NordVPN and ExpressVPN

Browser extensions

There are no web browser extensions available with TigerVPN, so there is not a lot to say here!

Customer support

The customer support with TigerVPN is a bit of a mixed bag. It could do with some improvement.

Let’s start with the good points first! The knowledgebase is detailed, and the customer support team are helpful.

On the flip side, though, it does take a while to hear back from the support team, which can be a little bit frustrating, and you are only going to be able to see the knowledge base if you are a paying customer.

Pricing

There are three different plans available on TigerVPN, with each one differing in terms of contract length, which is the case for most VPNs out there. The longer the plan, the cheaper the price per month.

If you opt for the one-month plan, you will be billed 11.99 EUR per month.

If you opt for the 12-month plan, you will be billed 79.99 EUR upfront, which equates to 6.67 EUR per month.

The cheapest solution is to go for the three-year plan, which will cost 99.00 EUR upfront, which equates to 2.75 EUR per month. 

There are plenty of different payment options for you to choose from, including PayPal, credit card, bitcoin, and payment walls, such as Mint. 

There is a money-back guarantee, yet this is only a seven-day guarantee, so do keep this in mind.

Summary

So there you have it: my thoughts on TigerVPN. TigerVPN offers some decent speeds, and it is good for unblocking streaming services in the United States. However, it is a basic VPN, and there are some gaps in the service. I would certainly say it is one of the better options out there, though. 

If you do decide this is the VPN for you, make sure you go for the three-year plan so that you can make considerable savings. Paying monthly will cost you a small fortune and is rarely suitable!
