    Great :thumb:
    I wonder if other vendors will use similar implementation of this new protocol.

    Mullvad give its users the possibility of double-hopping via Wireguard.

    IVPN had WireGuard in it's app(s) for awhile now, but does not connect on my laptop, but works on my Android phone (extremely fast). Although, they do say it's experimental and to be used for testing purpose only. Went to IVPN's site and it shows Connected.

    All UDP prots. No TCP...as IVPN has explained.

    Have tried NordVPN, but the connection speed is no where as fast as IVPN or Mullvad. Just to show, that more does not equate to better. Nothing against NordVPN.

    Anyway Nord isn't so trustable lately... shady alliances, FUD marketing tactics, etc...

    i always had a trust issue with nord. they never made it to my reliable / recommended vpn service providers list. and their proprietary app is just trash.

    Hi

    For android.

    Can check whether IVPN comes with a dedicated Kill Switch/Firewall/Network Switch or it needs the default android OS Kill Switch?

    Thanks

    Yes, it has a Kill switch, but it uses the default OS Kill switch. Last thing I post about IVPN; don't want to disrespect mood and to preserve the purity of this thread.

    Pics are in sequence from when you tap on Kill switch (left to right).

    Sounds like an interesting project, but why would I ever choose this over Wireguard with AzireVPN or Mullvad?

    you shouldn't. it's just a marketing gimmick, that's all there's to it.

    NORDVPN also offers this double-hop feature

    So I just noticed that Insorg offers five-hop connections :eek:

    I can do five hops too. But with five different VPNs :)
