Pricing

Their VPN package comes with 4 options:

TORGuard Pricing

Monthly – $9.99 per month

Quarterly – $6.67 per month

Bi-Annually – $4.99 per month

Yearly – $4.99 per month

Their monthly package is about right for the industry, but their 6-month package is unique. You can find cheaper services with IPVanish or NordVPN, but these generally fix you to a tariff of at least 2 years.

Also, their 3- and 6-month packages work out just right for digital nomads or those who are going traveling for an extended period of time but don’t want to commit to a 2-5-year plan.

Their packages come with a 7-day money-back guarantee.

Privacy /Anonymity

Tor Guard’s privacy policy regarding logs comes down to a single sentence: ‘TorGuard does not collect or log any data from its Virtual Private Network (VPN) or Proxy services.’

Though this is easy to understand, we rely on VPN providers to stick to the agreement that they have no logs to provide if asked to. To our knowledge, TorGuard has never handed over logs to law enforcement agencies and is subject to US Federal Law.

Their whole privacy policy provided no loopholes or “we won’t log but will provide information if…”

There are pretty clear terms of use, which do specify illegal content. This is a constant contention in the privacy community, because if illegal content is traced back to a VPN’s servers and then subpoenaed then irrespective of their willingness to help a VPN provider cannot give what it does not have.

Torrent Policy

Considering that TorGuard is the only provider we have come across that sells a streaming bundle specifically dedicated to streaming TV and media, with 2 free dedicated streaming IP’s, we can see that TorGuard embraces torrents.

We start to see why TorGuard is the VPN of choice for sophisticated users as you can choose dedicated IPs or freshly minted UK or US residential IPs. We were impressed with the wide array of options and services.

Also, you have the option to use SOCKS5 proxy.

Does It Work Well With Kodi?

Kodi would work like a dream with Tor Guard. Kodi is a fan favorite for people who want to stream the latest film, tv, and sports shows directly to their TV. Circumventing GeoIP and content blocks, allowing them to enjoy unlimited media time in the comfort of their own home.

With fast speeds, no buffering and unlimited streaming, Kodi is perfectly suited for use with Torguard.

Streaming Netflix?

TorGuard’s streaming package is perfectly suited to Netflix, Hulu, BBC I player or a whole host of other major media providers. With 3,000+ servers across 50 countries, you can be certain to connect in country and get fast speeds.

Tor Compatibility

Some more concerned individuals like to use VPN in combination with Tor to give a double layer of encryption to their data. Though there is no reason you can’t do this with TorGuard, you’d probably get better speed using their Stealth VPN and Stealth proxy double-layered security. Giving a similar double-layered security approach as NordVPN’s Double VPN.

However, with a proxy, you might get a bit more speed.

GeoIP

Torguard will have no trouble getting around GeoIP-locked content, like the UK Porn Ban, or Netflix from another country.

In fact, TorGuard’s big selling point is that it has been proven to work successfully in the Great Firewall of China, one of the most secure censored networks anywhere in the world.

One notable drawback is it did have trouble getting connected to BBC I player.

Speed

Torguard puts itself forward as one of the fastest proxies around. We saw speeds that were about average for the industry, around 55-60 MBps which is decent.

You will see a downtick in further servers, particularly Australia and South America, but this is pretty common across the board.

Security

We have to say Torguard really comes into its own when it comes to security and configurability.

You of course get military-grade 256-bit AES encryption and all the standard security protocols.

But we had access to a whole host of added functions.

You can choose between 128 and 256-bit AES. Both are unbreakable and 128-bit slightly faster.

You can also choose between a whole host of DNS server providers, as well as writing your own scripts which the VPN client can run when opening and closing. Very useful if say you want to automatically delete all your cookies when you stop browsing.

You can go as deep as you want, with the level of tweaks available far greater than we have seen in any other VPN provider. Though probably quite confusing for a beginner.

Customer Support

Torguard prides itself on best-in-class customer support. With 24/7 live chat. Their site is a bit dated and their FAQ and guides look a bit old. But there is everything here that you can guide plus an active community which is always a bonus.

They also have a ticket support system, and a rarity. A toll-free US phone number you can call to speak to an agent.

Jurisdiction

Torguard is based in Florida, USA, and subject to US Federal Law. Based on the so-called 5-eyes, this doesn’t seem to have made much difference to users as they have a solid ‘zero logs’ policy.

Apps

Torguard works on all major browsers, phones, and operating systems.

One of their biggest drawbacks is that they seem to have chosen functionality over ease of use. The application interface is cluttered and could do with a re-design.

But for the experienced VPN user, it’s a dream to have all these tweaks on one screen. For a beginner, they would probably feel overwhelmed and at a loss.

Servers

Tor Guard VPN has 3000+ VPN servers in 50+ countries

Final Thoughts

Torguard is a seriously impressive VPN provider. With more security functions and settings than we have seen anywhere else.

For us as VPN reviewers, we loved that you could do things like choose your DNS or write a script to autorun when the VPN disconnect and clear cookies and cache.

But, this is a VPN provider for someone who really knows what they are doing. There are cheaper and easier to use solutions out there like IPVanish.

Use Torguard if you really know your stuff and want to take network privacy to the next level.
