New IVPN Linux app with GUI now available

Releases By Viktor Vecsei | Posted on October 13, 2020

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.

A quick overview of the app:

We have tested the app on current Debian and Red Hat based distributions including CentOS, Debian 64, Fedora and Ubuntu. Your mileage may vary - let us know if you encounter any issues.

The app is open source - you can review its code and contribute on GitHub.

Download IVPN for Linux here to get started. Contact us if you have any feedback or suggestions.

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.
