What is a VPN? A VPN is a virtual private network, and allows you to securely tunnel your connection to the VPN server, so that it appears that all your data originates from that server. VPNs are also useful on public networks in order to prevent other users from snooping your connection, as all information through the tunnel is encrypted.

From the privacy faq:

TorGuard's Privacy Policy

In an effort to protect our clients' and site visitors privacy and rights, TorGuard has established a Privacy Policy which explains what information we gather on visitors and what we do with information that we gather.

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which TorGuard collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users of this Web site (each, a "User").

REFUND POLICY
If you are less than 100% satisfied with the TorGuard.net VPN, Proxy or Email service, we will gladly refund your payment if the refund is requested within thirty (30) days from the date of the purchase. Requests made later than the 30 day purchase date window will be denied. Additionally, accounts that have exceeded 10GB or more in download volume during the 30 day trial period will not be eligible for the refund policy.

Always read the terms, never trust a FAQ.

Tor Project a free Open Source program that may be useful for people that don't need the full functionality of Premium VPN Services.
Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.

Tor has nothing to do with TorGuard (the service being offered here)


Here are some alternative VPN services that have large selection of servers (worldwide)proxy.sh is $5 month

Setting up BT software Vuze (used to be call Azureus) to only use VPN connection (won't connect if VPN connection not available.)
Here is a tutorial of it.
http://wiki.hidemyass.com/Tutoria...hrough_VPN
Here's a tutorial for utorrent: http://wiki.hidemyass.com/Tutoria...IP_binding
(Remember to un-check make new firewall rule in utorrent settings/prefs)

Enter the interface identifier into the field next to "Bind to local IP address or interface" in the settings.
Note that the interface identifier is named different on every system, so make sure to check how exactly it is called on yours.
In their example, it is "eth15" for OpenVPN, "net2" for PPTP" and "net1" for L2TP.

Make sure the checkbox next to "Enforce IP bindings even when interfaces are not available" is checked;
otherwise it can happen that Vuze keeps downloading without using the VPN.

If the Vuze setup is done correctly, it will ONLY use your VPN connection. If you didn't login to your VPN service, Vuze won't work.

Anybody use this company? Do they have an "auto disconnect" in their client setup? I'd hate to be downloading a torrent thinking I'm protected and end up finding out the VPN stopped working leaving me exposed.
Exposed to what? If you're a freedom fighter in an oppressive regime, use a bit torrent client such as vuze that you can tie to a particular network interface.
Also, use only free service if you really want security. Money trail is too easy especially if it's a credit card. Even a bitcoin can be traced without much difficulty due to the small number of exchanges.

Would love to setup a way to get all traffic on my house to go thru this service. Anyone know of that's possible? Perhaps a firewall VM appliance or dd-wrt?
Well, whatever device you use, it has to support their VPN protocol.
One way to do it is to build a windows machine with 2 NICs and share the VPN network interface with your LAN.

Either way what are the chances they the co behind this isn't scanning our packets of data for a man in the middle type of attack?
Read their TOS. Anything that's SSL encrypted end to end, such as your banking stuff they can't do anything about unless you specifically accept security certificate signed by them in the browser.

Doesn't mean a thing. It also says they don't log but read the review I posted where they said they do keep logs for 24 hours. Who knows what they really do. Hidemyass also says they don't log but there was that case where someone used Hidemyass and in the end they turned over 6 months of logs on that person.

I wouldn't depend on any of these services for more than keeping the 12 year old next door to the Starbucks you are at from stealing your SD username and password.

If this is so important to you, you should have a lawyer look at it.

I like to just roll my own with a VPS. You can find many 64-128MB (overkill) VPS boxes for $15/year or less. I usually use lowendbox.com or lowendtalk.com (under offers). Everyone once in awhile a good VPS deal is posted to slickdeals too.

Pros: Full control over the virtual server, ability to install whatever VPN you want. Price is nice too. Can run anything you can run on Linux (RAM allowing). People have run basic wordpress sites in 64-96MB of RAM. You also control the logging.

Cons: Learning curve. You HAVE to know Linux and config files or have the patience to use Google. Limited bandwidth (typically 500GB-1000GB/month). Most VPS providers don't accept bitcoins or other anonymous payment methods. Many VPS allow VPN, but be sure to read the AUP and TOS before ordering.

Just another option I'm throwing out there, but it's not right for everyone.

They require billing info. What's up with that? I think a true VPN service shouldn't do that, right?!

How does this compare to the VPN service from Private Internet Access? PIA supposedly doesn't log traffic, but does TorGuard? Which is faster?

Witopia is the VPN I've been using for about a year and can highly recommend. They have a server in New Delhi. https://www.witopia.net/

Their prices are also very good. $5.99 for 1 month, $14.99 for 3 months, $49.99 for a year. They have a money back guarantee.

I use it mainly to stream the BBC iPlayer tv shows to here in the US. The speeds are more than good enough for video, at least for the UK servers. I haven't tried the New Delhi server.

So I just re-upped and did some testing...

No DNS leaks here so far, I'm using Windows 8 now and just tried a few servers. My Win7 laptop showed some leakage but methinks thats something on my end.

Speeds are much better than I remember before. Here are my speedtest.net results:

Miami - 33mpbs
LA - 40mpbs
Canada 30mbs
Netherlands 17mbps

That's all I tested.. What's everyone else getting on speeds??
