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.

Improving the user experience for Linux customers has been a big priority for us in 2020. Earlier this year we released a fully featured CLI app. Today, following the redesigned Android and iOS/iPadOS apps, we are releasing the next iteration of our Linux app with a graphical interface.

After kicking off the round of releases with iOS earlier this month, today we are introducing a rebuilt IVPN app for Android. The goals for this project were similar: to deliver a solution that offers better user control, a clearer overview of connection status and location, and enables a smoother setup process.
