AzireVPN is a personal virtual private network (VPN) service.[2]

Features[edit]

AzireVPN supports the open source tunneling protocol OpenVPN[2] and is one of few VPN service providers to offer WireGuard servers.[3] Its OpenVPN servers use AES-256 for data encryption.[4] The service is built and maintained by the Swedish company Netbouncer AB.[5]

AzireVPN is notable for claiming to utilize servers without harddisks as well as having hired the creator of WireGuard to write a rootkit-like module that, according to AzireVPN, "removes the ability of an ordinary system administrator to query endpoint or allowed-ip information about WireGuard peers, disable the ability to run tcpdump and much more."[6] AzireVPN maintains a custom open source VPN client that currently supports OpenVPN and is hosted on Github under the GPLv2 license.[7] It also hosts its own DNS servers and claims to provide DNSCrypt.[7] AzireVPN has an official channel on the IRC network Freenode.[2]

Reception[edit]

TorrentFreak has interviewed AzireVPN in their annual comparison of VPN providers since 2015.[8][9][10][7]
