Introducing device management for better control of logged in devices

Releases By Viktor Vecsei | Posted on February 13, 2024

We are introducing IVPN device management, an opt-in (disabled by default) feature that helps you review and log out from devices currently logged in to IVPN apps.

This step is a direct response to frequent customer requests for better device controls. IVPN plans come with a device limit - 2 and 7 for Standard and Pro respectively. Prior to this update, reaching this limit necessitated logging out from all devices in case unused ones were not identifiable or accessible.

After activating device management in the Account dashboard on

Device management is disabled by default due to a minor privacy tradeoff consideration. When device management is activated, an extra field for the device name is added to the temporary record table which helps limiting the number of connected devices. However, these device names, allocated by IVPN, are non-unique and recycled from a set list of seven across all accounts. This approach guarantees that device names alone do not link back to your account in case an adversary was able to gain access to this specific data.

We recommend reviewing our updated privacy policy, which outlines how we manage device limits and provides information on device management implementation. You can also consult the FAQ entry on Device management for further details.
