Mullvad app 2019.8

The Mullvad app version 2019.8 for Windows, macOS, and Linux has been released offering you more control over bridge connections and WireGuard key management.

None of use here at privacynow.eu use the bridge function per default, but if you do you’ve got a nice new feature in the 2019.8 release as you now in a very convenient way can choose both entry and exit node.

For Linux and macOS users, the WireGuard key management has been improved. The WireGuard performance over 4G networks has been improved.

Mullvad say a number of Windows users were suffering from DNS issues with the app. This issue has been resolved, and as a result, most Windows users should experience noticeably quicker connection times.
