What is Chameleon?

VPN traffic is increasingly being inspected, diverted, throttled or blocked by governments, corporations and ISPs worldwide. This is particularly an issue in countries like China and Iran that actively restrict internet freedoms. Golden Frog's engineers have developed a remarkable new, proprietary VPN technology called Chameleon that is available in the VyprVPN apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.

Chameleon scrambles OpenVPN packet metadata to ensure it's not recognizable via deep packet inspection (DPI), while still keeping it fast and lightweight. The Chameleon technology uses the unmodified OpenVPN 256-bit protocol for the underlying data encryption. The result is that VyprVPN users are able to bypass restrictive networks put in place by governments, corporations, and ISPs to achieve an open internet experience without sacrificing the proven security for which OpenVPN has long been known.

Chameleon is great for VPN users being blocked in countries such as China, Russia, Iran, Thailand, and Syria, or in multiple countries worldwide where users are experiencing speed issues related to bandwidth throttling. The new VyprVPN protocol is now available globally at every VyprVPN server location in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania.
