What’s going on in the VPN World: July 2016


Summer is finally getting into the swing of things and there has been plenty going on with VPN providers this month.

From upgrades to expansions VPN providers are ever evolving and although many of us are looking forward to and enjoying some sunny days the VPN services certainly aren’t disappointing and continue to expand giving you more service for your money.

So let’s find out what has been going on at the leading VPN providers this month.

ExpressVPN expands connections

As VPN services want to give their users more, competition is fierce. From everything from servers available to how many concurrent connections are allowed.

Previously ExpressVPN allowed users to connect on up to two devices specifying one desktop / laptop device and one portable device such as a phone or tablet.

Most other leading providers offer 2 or more concurrent connections and don’t stipulate on what type of devices those connections can be used on.

ExpressVPN has clearly been watching the market and listening to customer feedback as they’ve now decided to expand the concurrent connection limited to 3 devices of any kind.

This is great news for current and future users as it allows more devices to be protected within your home or while out and about and also means you can unblock restricted content on more devices.

VyprVPN backs their logo

If you’ve searched around in the VPN scene then you’ve no doubt come across VyprVPN and seen their parent company Golden Frog’s unique frog logo in golden colour.

In a show of support for their logo mascot, Golden Frog has decided to collaborate with a conservation project aimed at protecting the endangered Panamanian golden frog.

As you may have guessed the logo for Golden Frog is modelled after the endangered frog which makes their support of Smithsonian’s Panama Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project highly commendable.

The frog itself is at risk from a fungus amongst other things and the current aim of the project is to find a cure ensuring the survival of the amphibian species.

VyprVPN has already made a donation to the project and are encouraging others through publicity on their site to do the same.

Certainly a noble cause showing that VyprVPN cares about other aspects outside of privacy.

StrongVPN reiterate benefits of their service

If you’ve been using a VPN service for a long time it’s often easy to overlook some of the additional benefits that a VPN can provide. The same can be said if you’re a new user and you’re not aware of some of the uses of a VPN.

StrongVPN this month made a blog post on the benefits of their service, so let’s take a look what StrongVPN can do for you.

Access to restricted and censored websites. With a VPN service from StrongVPN you can bypass blocks put in place by your government, ISP, educational institute or any other party allowing you to surf a free and open internet.

Stay secure on public Wi-Fi. When you connect to public Wi-Fi networks in a coffee shop, public space or other network that isn’t your own then dangers lurk against your privacy with the possibility that others can delve into what you’re doing or see your personal details. A VPN from StrongVPN will encrypt your connection meaning any possibility of that is a thing of the past.

Stop Government and ISP spying. If you live or travel in a country with a repressive internet regime or even a more democratic country then there is a high possibility that your Government or ISP will spy on your usage and may log the websites that you visit or the services that you access.

A VPN disguises your internet traffic and can pass it through another country avoiding such spying.
