Despite the name and the privacy angle, TorGuard has nothing to do with the Tor Project. Instead it’s a company which offers a range of privacy-related products, including an anonymous VPN plan for protecting your privacy while using torrents (which is where the “tor” comes from).
Product specifications are good, with a choice of 3000+ servers in 50+ countries, five simultaneous connections allowed, OpenVPN/SSTP/L2TP/IPsec protocol support with multiple stealth options to avoid VPN blocking (OpenVPN obfuscation, Stunnel, OpenConnect, and Shadowsocks.)
Getting started is easy with custom apps for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS, and there are setup instructions for Linux, routers and more.
Prices are mid-range at $10 (£7.70) per month, $5 per month paid annually. You can also purchase add-ons as you order, including a dedicated UK or US residential IP, DDoS-protected IP, or access to the company’s ‘premium 10Gbit network’ (USA, UK and Canada only), each costing $8 (£6.15) per month.
It’s also possible to add support for additional devices beyond the standard 5 for $1 each.
There’s no free product or trial. The company offers a 7-day refund. The front page of the website says this is ‘no questions asked’, but the small print says, ‘refunds can be denied within the 7-day period in certain cases’, so that might not always be true.
If you do decide to sign up, there are all the usual payment options, plus Bitcoin, and many others via PaymentWall.
The technical side of the service is more interesting, at least for experienced users who can figure out how to use them. Multiple stealth and obfuscation technologies aim to get you connected, even in countries which detect and block regular VPNs. You’re able to take manual control of your encryption algorithm, port and authentication method (SHA1, SHA256, SHA512.) Built-in blocking of WebRTC and IPv6 leaks prevents you giving away clues to your identity, and a kill switch blocks internet access if the VPN drops.
