Beta IVPN Linux app released

Releases By Viktor Vecsei | Posted on April 22, 2020

tl;dr: The IVPN Linux CLI app is available for testing - all feedback is welcome.

IVPN apps have been available for most major platforms since the release of our iOS app back in 2017. The obvious missing piece was an app for Linux.

Better support for Linux is big development priority for us this year. As a first milestone, we are releasing a beta command-line app with support for firewall, WireGuard, AntiTracker and Multi-hop included.

Linux Example

Minimum requirements:

During internal testing, we have verified everything works as expected on the latest versions of some popular distributions (Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Mint) plus some LTS editions.

We invite you to download the client and start testing with us. Drop your feedback in the dedicated Reddit thread, add issues on GitHub or contact us to share your findings. Please include your distribution version details plus any error messages.

Next project milestone is a GUI app, which we expect to release in the coming months.

Apps Open Source
We invite you to discuss this post in our Reddit community or on Twitter. You can also send your feedback to blog@ivpn.net.

Split tunnels enable you to remain connected to your VPN while simultaneously accessing specific apps and services directly, bypassing the VPN tunnel. With this solution you can protect your privacy and connect to services that restrict or block customers who use commercial VPNs.

Extending two-factor authentication to IVPN apps

Posted on September 7, 2021 by Viktor Vecsei

Last year we added a two-factor authentication (2FA) option for web-based account logins. This week we are extending the time-based OTP (one-time password) support to IVPN apps. If you have 2FA enabled on your account you will need to use the previously set up authentication method when logging in to apps.
