Test the new IVPN apps in our first beta program

Releases By Viktor Vecsei | Posted on August 11, 2020

Our team is preparing new and revamped IVPN apps for shipping to all customers. Major changes include a redesigned UI on all platforms and the addition of GUI to our Linux app.

We invite you to get a sneak peek, test our apps over the next few weeks and help deliver a bug-free release.

For testing on desktop, make sure that you have the latest IVPN apps installed (v2.12.4 for macOS\Windows, v2.12.5 for Linux) before installing the beta version.

Note: our beta service is only available to customers who have an active subscription with IVPN. If you wish to participate in this test, but you are not a customer or your previous plan has expired, we recommend purchasing a new subscription.

What to look out for while testing?
Hearing about your experiences is the aim of this project. While we welcome tips on improvements, we are primarily looking for reports on bugs we can fix before the full release.

DNS over HTTPS (DoH) support on macOS, Linux and Windows Releases

DNS over HTTPS (DoH) support on macOS, Linux and Windows

Posted on April 5, 2022 by IVPN Staff

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.
