I got a lifetime sub back when they were offering them through StackSocial... Now that they've gotten their shit together it's an amazing service as well - speeds are insane (doesn't slow my 150mbps FiOS)
TigerVPN. I actually got a lifetime subscription for like $40 a while back, and happen to live near L.A., where they have a server...
Not sure how the speed would be for the rest of the country, and I'm pretty sure there are only like 8 locations I can connect to, but so far I have no complaints other than a slightly annoying client (program).
I bought a 2-year subscription for TigerVPN via ~~ . For the VPN, sign up for the more expensive one, the 2 year one which includes the Taiwan server. You need to "be" in Taiwan to subscribe, but as long you connect to the VPNs taiwanese server, you are golden. The streams are live, or on demand immediately after the match. I have had no issues and the quality, whether live or on demand, is 4.5 mb solid. The VPNs server is Taiwan is strong enough to handle it. I really can't recommend it enough.
Edit: only read the title, and not even correctly. Just ignore my comment (it still might help someone else).
Edit 2: . Search "tiger"
The 15 nodes are a misnomer. You get access to all the important ones and these are really good nodes that I only see 5% reduction of my max ISP speeds, which is pretty standard for VPNs.
Check under specs for more details
I am not endorsing going via techdirt. It is just the second link when you google for "Tiger VPN Lite Lifetime". Feel free to go with any of these deal sites to get the deal.
In /r/vpn they seem to love and it has got servers in several countries.
I have personally used TigerVPN and Freedome (from F-Secure) in the past. The latter is a bit more user friendly and it's got client apps for iOS and Android.
Note: I've got no relation with or stake at the aforementioned providers.
Note 2: This is only to increase your privacy against mass automated surveillance. If you got an enemy to defeat, you might want to read about the topic yourself and not just hire a VPN that you pay with your credit/debit card :)
I looked at both and looked at app reviews and stuff and went with TigerVPN as they had been considered by torrentfreak in their survey at least and I've been pleased with it. I got the lifetime account too. If you do sign up and are open to using my referral link let me know, no obligation of course. Anything else to ask let me know. Im new to VPNs but do have a TigerVPN account, if there are specific questions to them.
I bought two when they had a sale, lifetime TigerVPN for 30$ and -50% rolling discount on TorGuard. I use one on mobile, one on router. In case any of there is compromised or stops working I just switch config files.
BSD is more secure, faster and stable. Community is more competent and more friendly, but that's my opinion. I can compile whole system from sources without any blobs, which is difficult on Linux even on FSF-accepted.
How does TigerVPN get listed as Logging: No, User Identification: No when they log their customers real IP address???
That's a good starting point, but I've read in some VPN subreddit(s) that the author has a bit of an agenda and/or doesn't really emphasize the right things. Good place to START, though. I'd also recommend reading the VPN article(s) at Torrent Freak.
So, PIA is cheap, but it already has a former Mt. Gox guy and now it's got another, so they may be losing me, which is a shame. I have ProtonVPN... not cheap... but good most of the time. If you can afford them, I'd recommend them.
I really want to like Windscribe (I have a lifetime sub), but I can't stay connected to them and the speeds are really slow for me for some reason.
TigerVPN, stay away.
Thank you to /u/PETTYOFFICER117 and /u/GloriousGe0rge for this opportunity. Just wanted to say to the rest of the PCMR community, I have had my lifetime subscription for a good 3-4 months now. I've tried PIA and CyberGhost in the past and always ran into throttling problems, my download speeds would slow to a crawl and go incredibly slow. Since going with TigerVPN, I've had no such issues. I can download and stream and play to my hearts content. Even if you don't win this and you're looking for a VPN service, these are the only guys I'd recommend. Customer service is impeccable and I ran into a technical problem which they helped me through.
I got tigerVPN a while ago. About a week or two before the promotions showed up. I've never had any problems with it. It works flawlessly. Can anyone explain to me why TigerVPN is hated so much on this sub?
Correct. I made this sheet for myself originally and I consider that hypocrisy and a trait of VPN companies I wish to avoid - so I marked it that way. As you pointed out, you don't care about that as much. We all have different wants and needs in our VPN companies.
>When you purchase our service, we save your IP address.
Indeed. If you dig deeper through Android manifest: , you'll see that permissions like READ_PHONE_STATE and ACCESS_FINE_COARSE are very high privacy risk. Many top VPNs don't use these kind of permissions. I wonder why they do?
TigerVPN tops with READ_LOGS and WRITE_SYSTEM - seriously?
Here's the spreadsheet of all the permissions from the VPN apps:
I really don't recommend using free VPN's, especially if you're using them for privacy purposes in the first place. The one in Opera would be your best guess I think if it has to be free.
If you have another service, Shimo is a really good client. I personally use TigerVPN and am satisfied with their service, never had any serious issues.
So yesterday I fired up my old trusty lifetime membership of TigerVPN connected directly to New York and fire up he old Comedy Central website, of course I couldn’t download the CC app as I live in a “foreign country”.
The video done did play, but kept skipping, fortunately most of the skipping went back so the sentences repeated, but some jumped forward, then there was a solid 40 minutes of the most mindbendingly retarded ads I’ve ever seen, I literally felt my brain get more stupider by the minute. Afterwards the interview started in the middle. Oh and then another 40 minute pointless ad attack before saying goodbye.
Is it any wonder people find this shit on putlocker or showrss?
TL:DR geoblocking is stupid
I bought both lifetime deals (as well as PureVPN one)(don't judge me!).
TigerVPN is my personal favorite. I bought/tried VPN Unlimited about 1-2 years ago and their clients were shitty and was no way to connect with an client other than theirs.
I've been with TigerVPN for about a year and I like it. It's simple but fast and they support 3rd party clients.
There was a deal on PureVPN so I bought it as it seems to be more liked than Tiger but I'm not using it as the speed are slower than Tiger.
I'm not a big user but when I use Tiger, it just works and it's fast. Their OS X and iOS aren't the best but on OS X I use Viscosity and I don't often do VPN on iOS.
My VPN was $60 for the rest of my life. Thanks XDA Developers Depot!
Right now PureVPN is $90 for a lifetime (that's what I use, they had an earlier sale. I've had them for a while though, no issues), they're outside of the 14 eyes, and you can connect up to 5 devices simultaneously.
Or, for literally that same monthly price, $30 gets you a lifetime with TigerVPN. Also outside of the 14 eyes, but only one device at a time.
Jeg bruger TigerVPN med det der lifetime tilbud de har kørt længe. Billigt, men torrent er ikke det hurtigste. Det kan dog fungere. Ellers så tjek reviews ud, husk at tjekke om de supporter p2p / torrent. ;)
If you do go ahead and pay for a VPN, like some redditors have suggested, make sure you get ones with a no log policy. If you are paying them, then they better make sure your privacy is ensured.
I got a lifetime deal and would recommend for TigerVPN, but the deal is over though.
edit: check out they have some lifetime vpn deals there.
I've recently bought such a 'lifetime' subscription from TigerVPN through StackSocial, 29 dollars I think.
Of course, the word 'lifetime' is a bit of a stretch in these cases, but even so 29 dollars is a hell of a lot less than what you pay elsewhere. Even if it's only for a year or two I won't have to regret it.
I can't comment on Droid-Life, but StackSocial is quite a renowned web site who offer this kind of deals on a daily basis, I'm quite sure they know what they're doing and won't publish an offer that isn't legit. Something like that would only hurt their reputation. Furthermore you can always use PayPal in case you want your money back or something.
Tu trouveras un excellent comparatif très exhaustif sur ce site :
La recommandation vient de Korben ;)
J'utilise pour ma part TigerVPN (j'avais eu une promo abonnement premium à vie) et CyberGhost, car le client VPN de ma freebox est assez difficile et refuse certains providers/serveurs.
No idea how it compares to the more expensive options others have suggested, but I got a lifetime subscription to TigerVPN a while back for like £20, speeds are good and it works using US Netflix too.
StackSocial is selling a lifetime subscription from TigerVPN for only $30. Its not the "perfect" VPN for most uses, but for Netflix viewing it would be great.
I signed-up recently due to the irresistible $29 lifetime sub. Here are my impressions. Their windows desktop app sucks, I couldn't get it to connect at all, even after getting in touch with their support and trying their suggestions. BUT the open source OpenVPN GUI client works well, with great speeds, no disconnection issues yet, keeping in mind the same issues we all have with all VPN providers. Also PPTP, L2TP works fine too. I've also set it up on my DD-WRT flashed router and it's working fine so far! So, if TigerVPN stays in business for at least a few more years , the $29 will be well spent and if they're around a decade from now? that would be freaking awesome.
Hello! So, what you need to do is:
1 - Install FGO through QooApp
2 - Install a VPN app of your choice. I used TigerVPN.
3 - Set VPN to Japan
4 - Go into Zenfone 2 settings, tap on users, add a new user, create a new google account
5 - If your VPN is set right, you'll be able to create a japanese account with it (and as such, with access to the japanese playstore)
6 - Install FGO in said new user ( with the VPN still on!)
7 - Turn off your VPN
8 - Start playing! You can have one FGO account on the original user, and one FGO account on the new japanese user~
I'm getting this in the US as well. It's not working on my home Wifi, I tried several VPN locations, I found one on TigerVPN in Atlanta that seems to work pretty consistently today. It's definitely kind of hit or miss though, I think there's just some random network issues.
I realize now my brain is stuck in Windows. I didn't separate the client and server as needing two separate installs.
after re-reading your comment and referencing the TigerVPN wiki, I imagine all i have to do to start the VNC Server is to use the [systemctrl start] command via terminal as their is no GUI.
Am i understanding this correctly?
> So I got one of their lifetime deals a year ago
Maybe update your post with the VPN provider you're using. Is it TigerVPN? You mention "tiger" further down in your post but wasn't sure if that's the provider you're referring to.
Meu setup: Netflix account + TigerVPN (lifetime) + Asus RT10N + Chromecast
Eu tenho Netflix à mais de um ano e à uns meses que não uso VPN ligada ao US. Simplesmente, vou trocando entre a Holanda e o UK, onde tem algumas séries que não tenho no US.
I just checked it out . Thank you for that tip. Everything I can see on TigerVPN says that they are legit and that they are transparent in their terms and conditions. I realize there's a lot of the whole "if it's too good to be true" thing going on here, but sometimes a good deal is just a good deal. It's not like they permanently offer a lifetime VPN. It seems to be about once a year they offer the deal. Do I honestly think that they will be around for my lifetime? Of course not. But I still think it's worth the money for however long this company lasts.
Unfortunately/ fortunately I already got this working recently after messing around with it for a while. Cheers for another guide :)
If people have an issue with using a custom VPN (I have TigerVPN) let me know as I got mine working eventually :D
Hm, that's a good point. Are there any reports of TigerVPN or VPN Unlimited doing that? To be honest all the VPN providers I've seen so far seem a bit shady, and I really don't know what I should be looking for. I checked them out on the chart on the sidebar, and they were sort of green and orange with some red as well. However I for $39 I feel like its kind of worth the gamble on low security, as long as they aren't going to steal my info or do anything else shady.
I'm technically looking for a VPN specifically to bypass US Black Desert Online Regional Locks (live in the Philippines).
I'm also worried about security, as I don't want my credit card or paypal information to be stolen once I use the VPN to purchase the game.
I'm willing to pay for the service, though I've heard there is a TigerVPN subscription deal at the moment at Geek Dad Deals, but don't know enough about VPN quality to really grasp what I'm buying into for so cheap, should I decide to get that VPN.
I mentioned this in another similar thread.
StackSocial had a couple VPN deals.
1) Private Internet Access – $59.99 for 2 years. These guys have the best reputation for being truly anonymous.
2) TigerVPN – $29.99 for lifetime access. Up to 2 connections. Not quite as anonymous, but I'll chance it as a backup.
If you're just using the VPN for Kodi purposes then I suggest this program addon. I used it with ExpressVPN and TigerVPN. It's pretty strait forward. You may have to download the and from NordVPN and put it on a usb stick as the VPN Manager may ask for it.
TigerVPN, heel tevreden mee. Een keer een aanbieding voor €30 ofzo een lifetime subscription. Hebben een makkelijke app die je op de meeste apparaten kan installeren om de VPN op dat apparaat te activeren.
God damnit, I'm in Denmark and therefore assumed it wouldn't have georestrictions on it. I once bought a lifetime subscription to TigerVPN through bOINGbOING, I don't know if they still have that, or maybe they do from some other VPN...
I got my TigerVPN woking on Tomato 1.28 with the following settings, YMMV:
VPN Tunneling / OpenVPN Client / Basic tab:
Type = TUN
Protocol = UDP
Server Address /port = my vpn's server and port
Firewall = Automatic
Auth Mode = TLS
Username/Password Auth = check
Username and Password added in their respective boxes,
Username Authen. only = Not checked
Extra HMAC auth = Disabled
Create NAT on tunnel = check
Poll interval = 5
Redirect internet traffic = check
Accept DNS configuration = Relaxed
Encryption cipher = AES-256-CBC
Compression = Adaptive
TLS Renegotiation time = -1
Connection retry = 30
Verify server certificate = Not checked
I added the VPN key in Certificate Authority
There's a link to this doc in the Keys page:
Hopefully that helps.
I'm looking for a cheap, but paid, VPN service just to run on a single Windows laptop that is an easy install (not a manual setup, or additional config - I don't require advanced settings). I don't watch videos on it (netflix), but do some torrenting (via qBittorrent). Having browser extensions for use on other computers is not necessary, but would be a nice bonus feature to have.
I've narrowed it down to TigerVPN and ZoogVPN due to costs, and my main concern being Jurisdiction outside of problem countries.
Pulled the trigger on TigerVPN. Windows app works very well, with only a minor slowdown so far to speed but barley noticeable when just browsing (running on Recommended mode, for fastest servers). Android app has some issues with startup and has noticeable slowdown (sometimes not even loading items as if there wasn't a connection), but i'll keep playing around with it to see what can be optimized.
Apparently I received five notices from my ISP so far. I only saw the first one and the fifth one. My parents must have dismissed the other 3.
The ISP would redirect all internet traffic on our network to their Cease and Desist page where they would allow you to see the files that you downloaded and require you to agree to secure your network/stop torrenting before re-enabling your internet. The fifth stop and desist disabled my internet for a week (I believe - this was a while back) apparently, but I got it for torrenting a bunch of stuff right before leaving on a 10 day vacation... so it didn't affect me at all. The fifth notice also required ISP account information to dismiss and re-enable internet, after going through that I was warned that this is the last notice I'll be receiving and any subsequent DMCA violations will result in account termination.
After that I bought a TigerVPN Lite Lifetime subscription for $30 and have torrented over a terabyte since without any issues.
My experience with Private Internet Access was that I used it for a week or so and then they terminated my account with no notice or explanation. I stick to services outside the US now. TigerVPN has given me no problems so far. is good too but they can be unreliable.
E: but I have dsl and I notice almost no slowdown using a VPN.
IPVanish, TOR Guard, TigerVPN have servers there. Of course you want one that's fast for gaming. Since lower end encryption (eg. AES 128/TwoFish/BlowFish, RSA 2048) can give you increased speed and performance then support for lower end algorithms may actually be preferable.
TigerVPN's survey response was:
> Absolutely not! We built tigerVPN to purge all data once the transmission of a IP package was completed successfully. Its impossible to trace back any customer. On top of that we decided to use shared IPs in order to further randomize and anonymize our customers. The combination of having absolutely no logs at all and multiple customers per IP, wipes our customers digital footprint
The table is a summary of the survey.
I have previously posted my explanations of .
IPVanish's survey response was:
> IPVanish keeps no logs of any user’s activity and responds accordingly.
I would be happy for someone to produce another comparison table with what they think is the "truth", but I'm afraid that would take much longer and at some point you always have to take someone's word for it.
I use TigerVPN, they have a server in Sydney which I use regularly. I've never had any problems with speed or latency to date.
I route all my torrents through the VPN, so if I'm not connected, nothing will download in the bitorrent client. I highly recommend doing this if you haven't already.
I got a few from Shaw, but the fines were higher. I just ignored them. I think by the time they were all processed, I was at 50ish.
I use TigerVPN now, it's OK, but it has issues if you want to use it to browse.
I set up a virtualbox for torrents, so I can have a vpn kill switch without interfering with my typical browsing.
Sounds good! Though I've never needed something like vpncheck pro, both PIA & AirVPN have kill switch & DNS leak protection built into their clients. Is that something TigerVPN doesn't do?
My own public torrent VM is also Windows based but I want to migrate that to Linux when I get a chance.
TigerVPN at the moment.
I used ibVPN beforehand, which I also loved. When my subscriptions end, I look for deals like the above to keep it cheap. One-time $50 fee for two years brings the cost to about $2/month compared to PIA's cheapest package of $3.33/month.
There is a TigerVPN Lite Lifetime Subscription for only 29$ at Techdirt. Seem to be a bit too good to be true, especially the following rule: "Changes to the subscription may invalidate the lifetime subscription (e.g. upgrades)".
I don't get why TigerVPN gets so much hate on this sub. It seems like it's too good to be true but even if it works for only a year it's still a good deal. Sometimes I get better speeds than Astrill and StrongVPN when I'm connected to the nearest node. The only allow you to connect to 15 of their 62 nodes worldwide because you only get the lite version. The customer support is always quick and friendly. I've never had issues with them. You can get a free trial from them and test the speeds for yourself. You can even talk to them here on reddit. /u/tigervpn
Antigamente usava uma VPS da ramnode e criava um servidor com o softether. Entretanto, comecei a usar FlashVPN (gratuito) para ter conteudo do UK, que aconselho vivamente para quem só usa mobile devices (tablet, phone).
No entanto, como tinha um chromecast, a melhor maneira de o utilizar em conjunto com o telemovel, era ter uma rede Wifi com uma VPN por trás. E é onde entra o TigerVPN. Lifetime subscription até agora tem sido um sweet deal!
thank you so much for sharing your experience my friend :) even if its not what i'm seeking for but it will help a lot of people here :) about that TigerVPN , heard a lot of people talking about smartDNS and that its much better and faster , you have an idea about it ? and is the TigerVPN gives you fast servers ? sorry for my english
I've been using the native Windows config and it seems to work ok for torrenting, except that the webui doesnt work with the VPN connected.
The TigerVPN app is junk. It's way too bloated with the fancy visuals but doesn't actually include that many features. A kill switch and working auto re-connect would be nice.
I just needed to turn this off myself, and it's shitty that tigervpn is saying it's impossible when really it's quite easy.
Get a Run box open (Windows Key + R if need be), and type in "Shell:Common Startup"
Delete the TigerVPN shortcut. Problem solved. Found this on their facebook page when I, too, wanted rid of it's autostart "feature."
I don't actually play New Wave, but you're in luck because I do know how to get it working. First I got a hold of TigerVPNs (the S is important) and used it to set my region to japanese on my android phone, then I went to and applied to receive an invite to a game (I used Queen's Blade). Gree told me 'WTF, you don't have an account. Wanna make one?' and I said 'Yes' and sent my email and from that email, it'll invite you to register an account with Gree.
At that point, finding the game and installing it is a cinch. I don't know if you can play without the VPN on, but I think it's possible because I stopped using it shortly after I got my Gree account and I did end up at least trying New Wave for a bit. So that should work.
Though, I should warn you that Gree has slightly censored cards IIRC, Mobage is the one with the fully uncensored ones but that one I have no clue how to join.
Pour le chiffrement des données j'utilise LUKS sous Linux et les fonctions de chiffrement d'Android sur le téléphone.
J'utilise TigerVPN autant que possible.
Je réfléchis a certaines solutions pour chiffrer SMS, mails (PGP mais j'ai pas encore eu le temps de m'y mettre).
Après, faut avoir envie de mettre les mains dans le cambouis. Et empécher d'autres d'accéder à tes données, c'est aussi t'en empêcher toi meme si tu fais pas attention...
I've had the TigerVPN lifetime sub for about 3 months and I'm fairly satisfied with it.
There are 15 nodes but nodes can randomly stop working.
Their DNSleak issue seems to have been fixed as of last month.
I have had 0 speed issues streaming content, downloading stuff off usenet or using torrents. I only have a 16mbps connection though so take that last bit for it is worth.
I'll be more detailed and provide some quotes from their policy:
Let's even backpedal a little and say, "they don't log almost everything - however they log enough to be of concern to someone interested in maintaining their anonymity and privacy, which contradicts the purpose of such a service"
TigerVPN logs your IP when you register for service.
>"When you purchase our service, we save your IP address."
TIgerVPN requires your name to register.
TigerVPN logs your timestamps and bandwidth when you use their service.
>"Everytime you start our service we track the time and the amount of data you consume"
Stands because you decided so. It's an arbitrary decision, not universal.
Also, you mark the IP address as logged, when in fact I can't find any correspondence to your claims.
Mind you, I'm not affiliated with TigerVPN whatsoever, I just have an account (and many other providers too) and I'm acting for fairness.
Tell PayPal you are traveling so your remote activity isn't suspicious. You should do that for all of your banks and credit card companies.
Use a real VPN. I use TigerVPN but there are quite a few good ones. If it's a free browser add-on or proxy running on your laptop it's not a real VPN.
Somewhat. You should do a research on the company first and IIRC there's none that are totally transparent. I personally use TigerVPN lifetime (I think its reviews are barely above "acceptable" on privacy & security front) that I bought a long time ago when I was just experimenting. I barely use it nowadays and I also do not log in/out of accounts & do financial stuff on it. If I am doing it now I definitely would subscribe to one of the top providers instead.
I purchased a lifetime membership for TigerVPN for about $30. Gives me access to 15 servers worldwide and works perfectly. Whatever you do, ensure you go with a paid VPN as free ones like OpenVPN, albeit free are not very good. I experienced a lot of slowness and latency on the connection. Apparently they also keep logs which defies the point of having a VPN for some users, so bear this in mind too. Honestly, I'm a cheapskate when it comes down to it but with a VPN, get one that's been tried, tested and reviewed. When a free VPN comes out that gives privacy to the extent that paid ones provide, you and the rest of the Internet will know about it...
I'm not /u/Jordaneer but I had PIA and it was slow as shit.
I also hated my current VPN at first until they fixed their shit... But I got a lifetime subscription for $40 so that's nice.
But it's TigerVPN. Absolutely love it now that they've got it working smoothly.
Who would you recommend? I'm liking the TigerVPN OP suggested. And I at least trust them enough that they won't login to one of the servers I accessed just to fuck with me lol. Whatever other creepy snooping they're doing is whatever haha.
I mean, at the end of the day it's not particularly difficult to spoof the service into thinking you're in the UK by using a VPN (such as TunnelBear or TigerVPN). Even the free chrome extension "Hola VPN" will do the job perfectly fine.
My apologies for incorrectly asking this question in the open forum, let me try again the correct place.
Various web sites are offering a Lifetime Subscription to "Full TigerVPN" for US$50
Does anyone know whether this is the full cost of being connected to the VPN, or is there a separate per-GB charge?
I got a lifetime subscription to TigerVPN Lite last year on the cheap (like $30) and it worked well. Like /u/Bagman530 said below, you only need to VPN in to get a link to the stream then you can disconnect so the VPN speed shouldn't matter.
Really don't know who's the best but after trying a few different monthly subs I found a deal on a lifetime sub for $20-$30 (can't remember exact price) from TigerVPN. Works about as good as all the other options I tried and no more monthly subscription. I'll either have it till I don't need it anymore or until they shut down. I've already got my monies worth plus some.
I get 20Mb down (my max) if I limit the upload to about 50-75 KB, which is basically what happened with other providers. I've tried PIA, AirVPN, and a few others I can't remember the names of.
