hide.me VPN Updates Its Windows App With New Security Features

hide.me VPN released an update for its windows app introducing some new features

Online PR News – 15-September-2015 – Labuan – 25-08-2015, Kuala Lumpur: hide.me VPN is always working towards improving the security of its users and keeping their promise, they have released an update for their windows app loaded with new and amazing security features.

Kill Switch
Kill switch is an innovative feature to ensure data privacy and security of all users by disabling all internet activities when the VPN disconnects. This feature automatically resumes all internet activities once the VPN reconnects.

hide.me is here to provide security and anonymity to users. But, this tool only manages to protect the user's privacy until it is connected. In most disconnection cases, users do not even realize that their VPN connections have stopped working. Cyber criminals and surveillance agencies stay on the lookout for these few unprotected moments to get into a system and compromise its security. Luckily, this will not be the case anymore with hide.me VPN users, because hide.me VPN has introduced the Kill Switch feature in its new Windows VPN App.

IP Leak Protection
hide.me VPN added IP Leak protection to ensure IP leak is never a possibility.
As soon as the VPN connection is established, our application deletes the default gateway of your Internet Connection so your local network becomes inaccessible. In such an instance you enforce the VPN usage adding another layer of security making IP leaks impossible and that's not it. The app also blocks outgoing IPv6 connections automatically to prevent IP leaks. It won't affect your overall Internet connectivity if your ISP assigns you an IPv6 address.

DNS Leak Protection
This feature helps users to set a public DNS to the main network interface so all DNS requests originating from your computer are routed through hide.me VPN network. In rare cases, DNS requests might not go through the VPN connection because of your router's default configuration but our app takes care that no DNS leaks can happen during an active VPN connection.

Fallback protocol
This feature helps users to automatically connect to a secondary protocol in case the primary protocol fails or is blocked by a firewall.

Automatic Fallback feature in our new Windows VPN app automatically connects to other secure VPN protocols in case of a failure of one protocol (Failure to connect to one protocol is mostly because that protocol is blocked by a firewall). Instead of going through the hassle of trying different protocol and connecting again and again, hide.me users will now automatically connect with the most suitable and secure protocol automatically.

Manual Server Selection
hide.me VPN has added a new feature 'Manual Server Selection' in its Windows VPN app v1.1. This feature will help premium customers to define a manual server to enjoy Fixed IPs.

The best part is that all these new features are absolutely free for all hide.me users.
