The name TorGuard do confuse many who think the VPN provider has something to do with the Tor Project though TorGuards says it has no affiliation with them.

 TorGuard advertises itself as the best VPN service provider, promising users of a safe and anonymous status when carrying out online activities. This VPN service also prides its self as the best VPN out there for torrent users -- with its specially optimized proxy for P2P file sharing.

 So is TorGuard what they claim to be? In this review we would be looking at TorGuards features, what they have to offer, what distinguishes them from other VPN service providers and if they are worth you hiring their service. By the end of this review, you would have had your answer.

Security:

There is also the 'Stealth proxy' option for Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) bypass for users in countries like UAE, China, Iran, Syria or in any country where VPN protocols are heavily filtered by the government.

TorGuard VPN also block ads, live malware and also the VPN has an inbuilt leak protection against WebRTC, DNS and IPV6 leaks. Protocols such as OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP are all supported by TorGuard VPN service.

TorGuard also has official support for VPN routers like DDWRT, Tomato and pfsense firewall. Theres also proxy support for web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome.

Privacy:
TorGuard VPN privacy policy states that the VPN service provider keeps no connection logs. However, for the fact that the VPN service provider is a registered US company, many might be having second thoughts about their personal info as seen with Pure VPN who handed over customer information to US authorities.

TorGuard 'No Lo Policy' simply means that they don't keep log of users activities and so there wouldn't be any user's activities or to hand over to government authorities if they come asking. TorGuard only keeps customer billing information. However, customers can still use Bitcoin to signup and then give out wrong information.

Support medium includes a 24/7 live chat which is available for customers and non-customers, Phone support, user forums, FAQ and guides to help users quickly resolve problems.

 While writing this review, i decided to try TorGuards live chat and see how fast and efficient their customer service rep were. So i messaged their live support, aggressively demanding for a refund as i pretended to act as an angry customer. I didn't get an instant reply but got a mail response (maybe many customers were queued up waiting to be attended to).

I was aggressive in chats (i wanted to test them) but was surprised to find the technical staff knowledgeable, friendly and coherent in answering my questions despite how cumbersome i made it look. I applaud them for that.
