Equipped with a BTC Lightning wallet and some sats, you can now set up an IVPN WireGuard tunnel in minutes without creating an account or sharing any personal information.
Benefits of using IVPN Light:
- Short duration access option, you can get a “throwaway” VPN tunnel for 3 hours or up to 30 days duration
- Priced in sats and affordable - you can purchase access for as little as 500 sats (3 hours)
- Access up to 5 locations or 1 entry-exit node MultiHop combination with one payment
- No account required - we only keep a record of your Lightning payment on our self-hosted BTCPayServer, no personal information is collected
Differences versus a regular IVPN subscription:
- WireGuard app or CLI is required to connect, IVPN apps do not support Light tunnels
- You can only pay with BTC Lightning
- To continue using the Light service after expiration, you need to purchase access again - no subscription or top-up option
IVPN Light is an experiment in supporting Lightning adoption. We look forward to your feedback and appreciate any ideas for improvement:
