          • Enable PureVPN to auto connect to public networks.

            It would be great if PureVPN could store new network names and you could mark them at public networks. For example, i am at a hotel. the network is public. Every time i connect to this network (after logging in with hotel credentials) PURE would auto connect. This would save a tremendous amount of time for those who travel a ton. From airports to hotels, etc. Or auto connect on any network where you mark it as public and do not enable network share.

            • Auto Disconnect when you go into sleep mode

              Currently, if I put my laptop in sleep mode when i get back online, the client still shows connected> however, if I am on a public network that requires me to login, this connection prevents that from occurring. I then have to disconnect the client, and reconnect. PURE should disconnect when going into sleep/hibernate. thanks

              • Create a launcher program to enable VPN for programs

                Similar to the freeware ForceBindIP program I would like an exe that when passed a program as a parameter enables VPN for that program specifically (for those of us that use Split Tunneling).

                Using the PrueVPN GUI to launch an app is cumbersome, would be much nicer if we could run a program like this:
                C:\Program Files (x86)\PureVPN\launch.exe "C:\Program Files\Program\Program.exe"

                Thus launching Program.exe with VPN enabled. Either this or figure out how to monitor for programs on the Split Tunneling list and enable the VPN on them quickly as they start so no data gets sent through our normal connections!

                        I'm not sure if i was the only one having this issue or if they were others but all the times i talked too the live chat people we never could get my speed over 150 mbs download and they were times i would get like 25 mbs down which is kinda weird when i have a 1 gig download speed without PureVPN but after me being very new too all of this i finally found a solution that worked for me and hope this will help anyone else with the same problem and maybe the live chat people could…

                          • Please let users change their username from purevpn*randomnums* to something less tedious to type out every login

                            This can be an easy solve which helps users not have to remember a long line of numbers or keep the password written down. I feel it's such an easy solve to something so irritating even though the problem is so small. This probably will never be implemented but its a small problem that makes a big difference if changed. Thank you

                              We do understand your concern and we surely have eyes on this however, security reason is something we need to pay closer attention before proceeding to allow changing username.

                              Hope you can understand!

                              I suggest PureVPN can add more one function in Windows Clients Apps about it can Speedtest to ping all the PureVPN servers which is the lower ping
                              because I always disconnect in china and I don't know which servers locations is the best to connect.

                              • Select programs to NOT use the VPN

                                I would rather use the VPN for everything and only select certain programs to NOT use the VPN.

                                So it would be a way to use Split Tunneling the other way around and select programs to not use the VPN and use the VPN for everything else.

                                That way if I install a program and forget to add it to the Split Tunneling list it uses my real internet connection.

                                    It would be awesome if you could make it switch vpn every 60 sec for an example.

                                    And afterwards chose minutrs/seconds by our self.

                                      • Remove dependency from "Launch on system start up" for "auto-connect atfer launch"

                                        Remove dependency from "Launch on system start up" for "auto-connect atfer launch".
                                        Now the auto-connect is possible only in case the windows app starts automatically with windows.
                                        My suggestion is to unlink these two options and allow autoconnect even in case the app started manually. Or even better give the possibility to manage start and connect using command line switches.
                                        thanks

                                        • New Advanced User Guide

                                          Just Imagine!

                                          Imagine a very easy user friendly and simple guide for beginners to quickly become advanced users of PureVPN on your computer.

                                          Imagine a guide that explains how to run any and every command quickly from the run command or even the command line.

                                          Imagine how easy several tasks could be if we could automate them via the command line.

                                          Imagine being able to jump to any part of the User Interface easily and quickly with a simple run command or even personalized shortcut combination.

                                          Imagine not having to navigate through the very slow interface.

                                          Even though there are…
