Release of revamped IVPN app for iPhones and iPads

Releases By Viktor Vecsei | Posted on September 8, 2020

Today we are releasing redesigned iOS and iPadOS apps for IVPN. This is the first milestone in our project of rebuilding our applications for better usability and user experience.

Why have we opted for redesign? There are specific aspects of the apps we aimed to improve:

  1. Easier controls accessible right in the main screen
  2. Better visual overview of connection status and location
  3. Smoother setup process and account management within our apps

Let’s see how these needs translated into the revamped version of our iOS and iPadOS apps:

server selection on ios ipados ivpn app

A pull-up control panel is accessible from the main screen, providing a seamless way to select servers (including multi-hop), switch between protocols, or toggle AntiTracker.

An interactive map helps with picking a new location and verifying it after connection. The app displays the new public IP address.

A dedicated account screen helps grabbing your username, serving as a sole identifier. A QR code enables quicker setup on other devices.

iOS and iPadOS apps for IVPN are open source. You can review the source code and contribute on our GitHub page.

The release of a new Android app is the next step for the project, followed by desktop apps on Linux (with a GUI), macOS and Windows.

We welcome any feedback on the new app versions - please contact us to share your experience.

IVPN offers custom DNS servers which, when accessed through the VPN ensure that your DNS queries are encrypted between your device and our DNS server. This is a necessity, as DNS queries are not encrypted by the DNS protocol and can be easily read by an adversary observing your traffic (even when using HTTPS for your web traffic).
WireGuard Port Forwarding enabled Releases

WireGuard Port Forwarding enabled

Posted on February 16, 2022 by Viktor Vecsei

After the recent addition of Multi-Hop for WireGuard, we are now introducing port forwarding support for Wireguard. Port forwarding allows incoming connections on a specific port, enabling you to run various services on your device that need to be accessible from the Internet.
