The WireGuard VPN protocol is relatively new in the VPN industry. It sought to give VPN users the best service by simultaneously improving speeds and encryption over the previously available VPN protocols. WireGuard was supposed to disrupt the VPN universe, turn it upside down, and do away with the “obsolete” technologies it would replace. Has it delivered on its promises so far?
As WireGuard appeared, the reviews were all about the significant improvements it was supposed to bring. But unfortunately, that’s almost always the case when a new technology arises to challenge the prevailing standard.
However, WireGuard has been around for a while, and we’ve had the time to see it in action. Undoubtedly, it has its strengths, but it’s far from perfect. Also, some weaknesses are more visible now than before when the protocol was new and untested practically.
So now, it’s possible to review WireGuard more objectively, considering every pro and con, and see if it is the privacy, anonymity, and security silver bullet it was supposed to become.
This article provides a comprehensive review as we take a closer look at the updated information about WireGuard and assess if it’s a good option for VPN users. You’ll know WireGuard’s benefits, the privacy problems it poses (and its potential solutions), the best VPNs using it, the protocol’s future, and a comparison with other VPN protocols.
