In support of Ukraine: distributing free IVPN accounts

IVPN News By IVPN Staff | Posted on February 28, 2022

March 16 Update: Visit our dedicated Support Ukraine page to request a free IVPN account. This offer is open to anyone in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus.

IVPN has multiple team members hailing from Ukraine. Their reality has shifted from living and working in a peaceful environment to fleeing the country and hiding in bomb shelters in a matter of days. We are standing up for the right of self-determination and sovereignty of our colleagues and all Ukrainians. We will do our best as individuals and as a company to support them.

Beyond internal measures and this statement, we want to help anyone affected by offering free VPN service. Some digital communication channels are cut off or limited in Ukraine, and increasingly censored in Russia. We are distributing free subscriptions to anyone in these two countries so they can try to circumvent current and future limitations.

Why include Russia? While their nation is an aggressor in this conflict, we believe many Russians are against this move, and continue to look for information from outside of their country through free and unrestricted Internet access.

If you are a citizen of Ukraine, Russia or Belarus, or you reside in these countries please visit our dedicated free account request page to take up on this offer.

Furthermore, if you need information, tips or assistance on using privacy tools and anti-censorship measures, we will do our best to help.

Change of company name to IVPN Limited

Posted on August 10, 2023 by IVPN Staff

We have officially changed the name of the company operating IVPN from Privatus Limited to IVPN Limited. Ownership structure, jurisdiction, address and administrative registration details are unchanged. The reason for this move is to bring our product and brand name into alignment, reducing confusion and providing clarity to customers, partners and other parties about the operator of the service.

Gradual removal of port forwarding from the IVPN service

Posted on June 29, 2023 by IVPN Staff

Protecting the interest of our customers and ensuring the stability of the service have been key principles for IVPN since starting our operations more than ten years ago. To keep delivering on these promises, we have made the decision to gradually phase out the port forwarding feature from the IVPN Pro plan.
