VPN Providers That Support WireGuard In 2020

VPN Wireguard

WireGuard is a new open-source application and protocol that implements a VPN. It incorporates state-of-the-art cryptography and is easy to audit since it written with less than 4,000 lines of code.

Basically, WireGuard aims to be faster, simpler and leaner than IPSEC or OpenVPN. It runs over UDP.

This is a short list of VPN provider that currently support WireGuard:

  • Private Internet Access: Wireguard was made available March 22. PIA was involved in funding WireGuard development
  • VPN.AC: One of my recommended providers, especially for those wanted to avoid internet blocks and censorship
  • Mullvad: A small but reliable provider that supports WireGuard — including support via their iOS app
  • IVPN: Reportedly supports Wireguard
  • AzireVPN: This service supports Wireguard
  • ProntonVPN: Wireguard will be supported very soon
  • TorGuard
  • StrongVPN

  1. I’m with VPN.AC using WireGuard since they implemented it over a year ago. It isn’t yet available with their own apps but it works flawlessly using the official Wireguard apps on my PC and phone. The setup is very easy, just needs to generate the config file with their web tool and import it into the app. It is way faster than OpenVPN on PC. On mobile I don’t really see an advantage with it comparing to OpenVPN on their own app which is very good, too.

  2. I’m using PIA 2.0 beta 1 (build 04482) Windows.

    Torrents connect quick site browsing seems quick too.

  3. I don’t realy know much about VPNs, but my pocket says get a free one. I tried out Atlas VPN and it works great, tho my friend tells me it isnt “safe” to use it, but idk what does he mean by it. Why would it be not safe?

      Free VPN companies tend to log your data and have other questionable policies. If the cost the product is free, it usually means that you are the product.

    2. Free ones tend to log everything where a paid one has no log policies…hope that helps and you can Google it as well to research

  4. StrongVPN has had WireGuard deployed globally since September 5th, 2019.

    I wrote a lot of the setup guides. I’m on a 700 Mbps down / up line and end up getting about 600-650 or so while connected.
    On Linux its close to full speed. Windows and Android have a public beta app already deployed with iOS and MAC soon to be deployed.
    By that I mean the WireGuard protocol is integrated into StrongVPN app along with OpenVPN and ike v2 , etc.

    Many router setup guides as well at https://support.strongtech.org/hc/en-us/sections/360005735374-WireGuard-
    Our parent company, NetProtect is a platinum donor to the WireGuard initiative.

  5. You forgot to mention Torguard VPN. I noticed a few months ago that in my online account i had the option of activating 15 different Wireguard VPN tunnels from around the world. Each one came with a downloadable config file which included both the public and private keys along with all other relevant info to get the VPN up and running. All i had to do then was download the Wireguard App for Android and windows 10 and simply add each servers config file to the extremely basic looking Wireguard App UI and i had a new VPN setup in less than 2 minutes. And i would agree the speeds are up on openVPN but could that be because not as many people are using Wireguard servers as apposed to OpenVPN. From what i understand the Wireguard VPN tunnels or IP’s are not shared among thousands of other subscribers like other VPN’s do but each person has there own unique private passkey which remains the same for any tunnel they join but since each tunnel also has a public key along with it i guess theres no way in knowing yet how many people can use a single VPN tunnel or if they are like have a personalized Static IP for your Open VPN connection. Whatever it is at the moment its not costing me a thing as its included in my Torguard subscription and it always seems to be relatively fast and without any drop out issues at all. It looks like the future of VPN’s!!

  6. Wireguard misinformation is spread around..
    In short: (Anyone can verify the facts at wireguard website, it looks high secure so far)

    1. It has been reviewed by top cryptographers and their automated tools to check all levels of implementation.
    2. Its speed is not only at connection but in the actual encryption and decryption of packets, that is when you download large files or play games and video chats.
    3. Bureaucracy of committees and “excuses” of many decision makers acting like privacy betraytors among the software world makes its standardization and mass adoption slower than it should.
    4. Its full implementation for vpn providers is more challenging but if done write is more secure that the bloated competition.
    5. It has been designed by actual hackers and security specialists with the keep it simple philosophy of open source. (Check the company services behind it).
    5. Openvpn implementation of this bloated (reviewd??? Hah ha ) code that tries to do everything has great attack surfaces at network level. In short , I can verify that it can be broken in any platform (not its encryption but implementation, at least the UDP one) and thus become as an active back door with full remote code execution and take over of entire machine. This is even worst than not using encryption at all. In short, it has unrevealed zero day vulnerabilities , maybe for ages and for the benefit of the big surveillance agencies and their targeted operation teams who install spy/malware. No known operating system running it is secure (Maybe high restriction specific profiles from apparmor and selinux have some defense , but those are hard and don’t come as standard for average user.
    6. Many providers have a great cost and impact to switch infrastructure and they prefer to market as a privacy tool the “non-log” hiding behind a simple server where the exit IP’s are well known to data collection agencies. Yes , VPN providers don’t really need to keep logs, as all logs regarding connection times and amount of data (metadata) before entering and exiting VPN tunnel are held automatically from NSA PRISM and the likes.
    7. Only selective exit IP out of about 100 worldwide servers can offer some moderate protection along with wireguard or openvpn, and only MUllvad provider is offering this short of customization. If you combine it with a high secure browser and OS or have the right antispy plug ins (CYDEC, canvasblocker, webrct blocker and extra sock5 or https proxies setup with foxyproxy, you might stand some decent chances..But again, so much protection like an elite privacy hider, you will entice so much attention and by hiding so much you will create uniqckness and you will not be be able to hide among many thousands users and the crowd…
    At least not until the general public enforce similar great protections against those brutal marketing efforts and even higher abuse attempts from the cruel rulers of this world… who pretend to be fair and just!

  7. Check out TunnelHero, a privacy focussed WireGuard VPN service where you get dedicated bandwidth for yourself only.

  8. SoftEther VPN also known as Software Ethernet was developed by Daiyuu Nobori and his team at the University of Tsukuba, Japan. It’s a powerful open-source multiprotocol VPN that supports all the primary platforms.

    This protocol is completely free. It’s supposed to have the capability of penetrating any kind of firewall. It’s also said to be better, faster, and more secure than OpenVPN.

    Does anyone know Can it Disguise the VPN data as for example HTTPs ?

  9. Hmm, not sure if WireGuard is in final stage of developement and no audits were published. Also I cannot confirm the claim of higher speed compared to OpenVPN. For the moment this can be only a theoretical higher speed possibility.

    1. Yes, many people have asked VPN providers to support Wireguard, despite the fact that it’s still in development. Wireguard connects almost instantly, so this part of the reason it is said to be “faster” than OpenVPN.

    2. You will mostly recognize high differences in the following cases (else – still measurable but less of notice):

      – low cpu – mostly if we do talk about routers – I’ve seen already many cases where openvpn does limit (even in ranges 5-50 Mbit) while wireguard will speed things up on routers.
      – Very high throughput – this depends highly on server and client – but often you can’t get more than 100, in good setups up to 250Mbit but that’s about it.
