Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! There is a deal that I have made with TorGuard for $45 per year, OR you can use nearly any service on the market. You can also use TOR, which is just as effective, and free.
I say nearly any service simply because there may be one or two out there that are not compatible, but any service that uses OpenVPN or OpenConnect as a standard should have no trouble at all. This is not an exhaustive list, by any means, but these services use one or both of those standards:
ExpressVPN, TorGuard, NordVPN, Windscribe, PureVPN, Private Internet Access, HideMyAss, StrongVPN, Ivacy, SaferVPN, VPN Area, OverPlay, Anonymizer, BolehVPN, VyprVPN, ibVPN, SwitchVPN, CyberGhost, Hide.me, Privatoria, CactusVPN, IPVanish and VPN Unlimited
If your service is not listed, THAT DOES NOT MEAN IT ISN'T COMPATIBLE, I will happily try to find out, just message or comment.Last updated:
ArmorVPN uses the same technology, but because it can work via Wi-Fi or can be plugged in between your router and modem, it will protect every device you use, as opposed to downloading an app on every device.Last updated:
Currently, there is a bundle with Torguard for anyone who has ArmorVPN, but again, any provider should work.
For the lifetime VPN bundle, the partner is PureVPN.Last updated:
Yes it does, it can easily be switched on or off via the settings menu, either while connected or disconnected.Last updated:
ArmorVPN shares several features with other devices, including:
However there are a few things ArmorVPN brings as well, that the other guys don't have:
Choice of VPN service
Lifetime VPN offering
MAC address randomization
Optional external antennas
Simultaneous TOR and VPN use
The touchscreen does make it considerably easier to see what's going on and make changes, without having to exit your YouTube video or browser to use an app to change settings. Yes, there is an app option, but the screen ensures that no matter what you can control what's going on with your device.
ArmorVPN offers a choice of VPN service. If the service you use goes down, you find that it has security flaws, or you just find a better deal, you can switch, with no obligations.
An option to pay once and use your VPN for life is also available, so no monthly/quarterly fees to keep up with.
MAC filtering is very useful for a number of situations: you may have only one or two devices you want on the VPN, a web page that can only be accessed from your IP address, etc. You have total control over what devices use and don't use the VPN.
MAC randomization lets you further change who you appear to be on the internet, any MAC address can be looked up to find out the manufacturer (http://macvendors.com/ is a commonly used page).
The optional killswitch setting immediately disconnects all devices (or those using the MAC filter to use the VPN) if the VPN fails. This means that, should something happen, all browsing halts. Without this feature, it's very likely that your device would simply continue to let you use the internet, unaware that your VPN has disconnected.
Detachable external antennas will be added to the final product, allowing increased range.
The option to turn on/off NFC gives you the ability to easily connect to ArmorVPNs WiFi without having to put in a password, or giving your friend/family member/etc your password.
By popular demand, a firewall feature has been implemented to further control what devices and services are accessible or visible on your network, be it at home or on the go.
Using TOR and VPN side by side, along with the MAC filtering, allows you to use different features, or have some devices appear to be located in one country/area (on TOR), others in another area (using VPN), and still others show up where you actually are (using open internet).Last updated:
