Desktop Client - 3.0.0 Release

Authors list

We are very proud to announce the latest release of our Desktop client (3.0.0)! Included in this release is an innovative design for our settings interface which gives the user a fresh, organized look to better navigate their options! You can see the changes that were made in this update via the changelog on our website, in addition to the listed points below: 

  • Redesigned the Settings window to improve categorization and allow for future growth 

  • Separated the three “Kill Switch” setting choices into two separate settings - “VPN Kill Switch” and “Advanced Kill Switch” 

  • Automation rule triggers on the dashboard are now removed if the rule is deleted 

  • The “Usage” tile now adjusts units based on the amount of data transferred 

  • Fixed navigation order issues with VoiceOver on macOS in some Settings pages 

  • Fixed navigation order of overlay dialogs in Settings window for Windows screen readers 

  • Fixed an issue causing overlay tips to stop working after removing an Automation rule 

As always, if you run into any issues installing the update or using our service, our Support Team would be more than happy to assist with sorting things out. Whether through our 24/7 Live Chat Support or our Ticketing system, we want to ensure anonymity for all users seeking it!
