PureVPN Product Release

PureVPN’s first major product release of Q1, 2019 is finally here!

We are eagerly reading your feedback on our ideas forum and the valuable opinions you shared with our CEO. However, we did not stop there.

Our team has actually put countless of hours to turn YOUR ideas into reality! Feature improvements, ease of use, and a makeover to our most loved dedicated IP feature are part of this release.

We are very excited to announce the new features and improvements we’ve made based solely based on your feedback.

Cool Updates in Browser Extensions:

1. The Most Popular Channel 4 is Now Available

Now you can enjoy the most demanded British streaming service, Channel 4 with PureVPN’s Chrome and Firefox extensions. By using PureVPN’s extensions, you can now access Channel 4 as well as 30 other streaming channels! It has also been added to our Android TV app. Isn’t that awesome?

3. IP Address Displayed on Connected Screen

At PureVPN, we are always looking for ways to enhance our user’s privacy. So, last year we removed the displayed IP address from the app Dashboard. This was only done to respect YOUR privacy. But once we made this change, a lot of our users had complaints as they wanted to see their IP address after connecting to PureVPN.

We realize this information is extremely useful to our users, especially when it comes to checking whether or not one has connected to the right location. As such, we have made the IP address available again on the app Dashboard for your convenience!

5. IP Address Shown on the Connected Screen

As with our Android app, we got rid of the displayed IP address on the app Dashboard in an effort to enhance your privacy. However, realizing how useful this information is to our user’s, we have brought it back – you will now be able to see your IP address after connecting to PureVPN!

6. Connect to Your Dedicated IP with Ease

Yes, we accept that connecting to our Dedicated IP mode was not as simple as it should’ve been. We realized this thanks to our valued users. So, we’ve fixed that and made it super simple to connect your Dedicated IP.

Before you had to enter the ‘Hostname/Dedicated IP’ in order to connect to your Dedicated IP. Well, not anymore. All you have to do is log into the Windows app, go to Dedicated IP mode, and we will automatically fetch your hostname. Cool, right?

7. Our App Now Remembers Dedicated IP Hostnames

If you’re someone who uses multiple ‘Hostnames’ in Dedicated IP mode and have a difficult time in remembering them all, then this new update is made for YOU! Our app will now save the last connected hostnames for you, so even if your forget it you can choose one from the drop down menu.

8. Mark as Favorite on the Connected Screen

Before, the PureVPN app used to show a star icon at the connecting screen. When the app would connect to a specific location or channel, the star icon was displayed to the user so they could mark it as ‘Favorite’. But then we got this simple but extremely useful suggestion for one of our users.

He said:

I would like to make a request for letting me add a server to my favorites after I have ascertained that it works. Currently, when I connect to a server, I can add it to my favorites while it is connecting. The trouble is, I don’t know if it has worked at that stage. It makes sense, right? User should be able to mark a location or channel favorite after he is connected to it. And not at the time of connecting.”

Our team really liked the suggestion and made it available right away!

9. Gift PureVPN to Your Loved One! (Yes, It’s Free!)

Our users have been very kind to us in making PureVPN even better with their valuable suggestions. As a gesture of our appreciation, we’ve added a special ‘Gift’ in your Member’s Area which you can share with your loved ones.
