This Package Contains an Exempted Check

Not All Tests Have Passed

Validation Testing Passed

Verification Testing Exemption:

This is failing automated testing due to a window popping up that api-ms-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing. I've added kb2999226 as a dependency to fix this problem but I believe this requires a reboot so this pkg needs an exemption.


Scan Testing Successful:

Torguard VPN Client

Every internet connection, regardless of personal or public wifi, binds you to the "terms and conditions" of that provider. Many times, these terms of usage are vague, leaving the safety of your personal data to be determined by a policy you probably don’t have access to. One doesn't have to be doing anything illegal either – there are many documented cases in which personal freedoms have been violated by ISP’s, website owners, and search engines. At TorGuard VPN, we believe every law abiding citizen has the right to encrypt and protect their personal data online.
Big businesses wouldn’t think of risking company secrets on an unsecured connection, so why should you?

TorGuard VPN service protects your online identity by providing you an anonymous IP address to hide behind. By using an encrypted VPN tunnel, this makes it impossible for your personal IP address or internet usage to be captured. Not even an external ISP, website, or search engine will be able to determine your real IP address. TorGuard anonymous VPN provides access to 1600+ Servers in over 50+ countries with just the click of a button. Take back your online privacy today and surf the web in complete privacy.


This software requires a subscription to the TorGuard VPN Service in order to work.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
