TorGuard announced today the release of a new DNS leak proof OpenVPN client for windows, mac and linux systems along with an added “mobile” site and service. This update for openvpn provides an easy way to secure one’s IP address without leaking personal info through DNS. The company also promises the release of a TorGuard android app available on Google Play late November, while for now, they’ve added multiple L2TP servers for mobile iphone and android users.
TorGuard.net, a leading provider of torrent VPN andproxy service, announced today the release of a new DNS Leak proof OpenVPN client for Windows, Mac and linux operating systems. When using a VPN provider, most expect that all their traffic flows through the VPN network, however sometimes a security flaw known as a “DNS leak” occurs. Under certain conditions, even when connected to a VPN service, the operating system will continue to use its default DNS servers instead of the anonymous DNS servers assigned by the VPN service. DNS leaks are a major privacy threat since the VPN provider may be providing a false sense of security to the user while their personal information and data is leaking. An easy tool to check if your VPN provider passes the DNS leak test can be found at dnsleaktest.com. After the release of their new DNS leak proof openvpn client , the TorGuard administrator stated, “Most people don’t think twice about DNS leaks when using a privateVPN service. With the TorGuard openvpn client version 3.99, one’s VPN connection is secure and DNS leak proof the second you start using it; there is no need to modify your system or install any other software. I encourage everyone to put their VPN provider to the dns-leak-test”.
The company also recently announced the launch of it’s mobile site (torguard.net/mobile) which is developed specifically for iphone and android VPN users. Through recent network expansion by adding multiple L2TP VPN servers and support for simultaneous connections, the TorGuard administrator stated, “Our company is undergoing the next stage in development as we continue to provide better service and VPN server options for the mobile android or ios user. Our knowledge base is full of VPN tutorials for mobile OpenVPN and L2TP users. We will also be releasing an easy to use TorGuard OpenVPN android app on google play late this November. By adding support for simultaneous connections, you can now secure your desktop, laptop, and mobile phone all on the same account.”
