The result is that Internet users are able to bypass firewalls and achieve an unrestricted Internet experience. Chameleon is great for users being blocked in countries such as China, Russia, India, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and Syria among others, or if you are experiencing speed issues related to bandwidth throttling. Chameleon is now available globally at every VyprVPN server location.
