IVPN boosted

As a privacy-first service we refuse to do surveillance-based advertising or use marketing techniques that abuse your data and autonomy.

However, we would like to see more people test and evaluate IVPN and compare it to other providers.
To help with that we are distributing IVPN Gift codes to anyone interested in our service.

Reply/send us a DM for a Gift code if:
- you don't have an IVPN account, but curious about service
- if you use IVPN and have some friends in mind who could benefit

We are looking for a Back-end Developer to join our team and our mission to help people resist online surveillance. Full details & application link: ivpn.recruitee.com/o/backend-d

IVPN for Android v2.4.0 is out.

With the ‘Bypass VPN for local networks’ feature you can access devices on the local network whilst connected.

With mock locations your location information will be harder to track. To enable this feature go to the advanced settings section in the IVPN app and follow the setup guides.

You can use DNS over HTTPS with IVPN for iOS 2.3.0, out now. Option 1 is to enable HTTPS or TLS protocol for your Custom DNS settings. Option 2 is to configure a custom DNS over HTTPS server to be used when there is no VPN connection. Or you can do both.

This option is only available with OpenVPN or WireGuard protocols and with iOS 14 or later installed.

We have published a tool called 'Do I need a VPN?' to help people decide if they would benefit from using a commercial VPN. If anyone you know is unsure whether they need one, we can help resolve their questions: doineedavpn.com

Do I need a VPN is open source. You can review the decision tree and all end states and submit issues on GitHub if you have improvements in mind.

An independent security audit of all IVPN apps conducted by Cure53 has concluded. For details of the audit and full results refer to this announcement post: ivpn.net/blog/ivpn-apps-securi

Cure53 report in full: cure53.de/pentest-report_IVPN.

Just like before, we commit to undergo annual security audits, where the focus will be on the parts of our infrastructure and apps that we believe to be the most important.

If you use a VPN, you should know who is responsible for protecting your data. Obfuscated ownership and confusing corporate structures used to be the norm in the VPN industry. Times are changing, but it’s not always evident who can you hold accountable. ivpn.net/blog/who-owns-your-vp

A quick settings tile for Android is an often requested feature by IVPN users. App version 2.3.1. out today delivers this along with other improvements. WireGuard is now the default protocol for new users of the IVPN Android app. Full changelog: github.com/ivpn/android-app/bl

We complete this round of new IVPN releases with updated versions of our Linux (v2.12.16), macOS and Windows (v2.12.17) apps, out now. Besides the addition of certificate pinning, we have applied minor UI changes and fixed a small issue with WireGuard key rotation mechanism.

If you experienced any issues with the previous version of our macOS app released earlier this week (v.2.12.16) please update your IVPN app - all issues should be fixed in v.2.12.17.

IVPN for Android v.2.2.0 is out today on our website and in the Play Store. Similarly to the iOS app, we have added: 2FA support for login, certificate pinning to help prevent man-in-the-middle attacks and an improved Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. ivpn.net/apps-android/

IVPN now provides package repositories for major Linux distributions. Currently we build and maintain packages for Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Fedora, CentOS and Arch. Available now through our Linux app page: ivpn.net/apps-linux/

We recommend using the provided package repositories to install the IVPN app for Linux and to keep it up-to-date. We also provide separate deb / .rpm / .AppImage binaries or you can install from source code as an alternative.

We have scheduled our next security audit that will cover IVPN apps for all platforms (Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android).

The audit will commence in February 2021, and we expect to publish the results no later than March 2021.

Do you have the best, fastest, military-grade VPN that gives you total privacy and anonymity? Your provider might have promised you all these things.

9 out of 10 highly recommended VPN providers made false claims on their website - the only service from our list that passed the test was TunnelBear (no pun intended with the preview image).

Review the complete list and wording examples in our blog post: ivpn.net/blog/misleading-promi
