“Personal experience “

Sharing my experience after trying almost every VPN with different ISPs, this is the list that i can at least rely on in every situation, I won’t mention VPNs that sometimes work and sometimes don’t:

Mullvad❌
Geph ❌
Adguard❌
F-secure Freedom ❌
Bitdefender ❌
Proton ❌
Speedify❌
Phsiphon ❌
Outline ❌ (tried different free servers, needs lots of volunteers from outside of Iran)
OrBot ❌

TorBrowser Snowflake ✅
ExpressVPN ✅
NordVPN ( Obfuscated servers)✅
Windscribe (WStunnel for desktop app, extension for browser) ✅

I rather choose a VPN that works at highest censorship levels , this is the time that the team behind a VPN company and developers show their capability 📍
Thanks for Sharing. I'm also from Iran. I'd liked to correct a few things!
Some of VPNs u mentioned as not working actually works!
1. Protonvpn: It works on android via Stealth protocol. I use it mostly on my phone.
2. geph: the beta version has a few improvements. such as a new protocol called "sosistab" I've tried it on windows. it works but the speed is low.
* I'd like to add VPNGATE.NET site. It has a list of VPN addresses that u can connect to. the speed is better than Geph. I'm corrently using it on windows.
p.s.: I wish Protonvpn had stealth protocol on windows.

Add Surfshark and IPVanish as well.

Most VPN should work which run Obfuscated servers ( Aka SSL wrapped open VPN or SSL wrapped other protocols )

but you also need a VPN with tons of ip / which swaps servers often
thats why mullvad failed they dont swap often and have their entire server list visible including IP on their website , the dream of any censorship country easy to block.
Is VyprVPN's Chameleon named protocol, (anti-cencorship), also SSL wrapped open VPN? Is SSL wrapped open VPN, TCP or it is UDP?
