Updated desktop apps for Windows and macOS

Today we’re pleased to release updates for our mac and windows clients. The new clients are available immediately for new and existing customers. To download the latest version, just visit the IVPN for macOS and IVPN for Windows pages.

The aim of this update it to bring our desktop apps in line with our new android and iOS apps in terms of layout, design and usability, and to build on the feedback we’ve received from our users.

Update summary

A few bigger changes:

How can I get it?

To download the latest version, just visit the IVPN for macOS and IVPN for Windows pages. If you do not upgrade right away, don’t worry, your client will automatically update in the next few weeks.

How can I let you know what I think of it?

As always, please let us know what you think about the changes we’ve made, and what you think we should do next by emailing support@ivpn.net.

P.S if you haven’t already, please download our mobile apps for iOS and Android.

A few months back we did a quiet launch of our mobile apps for Android and iOS. We wanted to ensure they were as stable and polished as we could before general release. We’re now looking to make these available to all of our users. That means no more openVPN configurations on mobile.

You can download the apps by visiting the IVPN for iOS and IVPN for android pages, or if you’re on desktop, just scan these QR codes.
