  1. Streamline the resetting of the Kill Switch to regain internet connection

    The Kill Switch works perfectly; however I would like to see the reconnection process simplified to make it less cumbersome.

    At the moment, once the connection is lost, you have to 1) close the warning window; 2) Go to Preferences; 3) uncheck the Activate Internet Kill Switch check box; 4) Recheck the checkbox; 5) close the "internet restored" message (or wait for it to close on its own); 6) go back to the Main Page; and finally, 7) click the Connect button.

    Most of these steps could be eliminated with a Kill Switch reset button, perhaps on the Main Page.…

    • Enhancement to the Auto-connect after launch feature

      I love the Auto-connect after launch feature. It protects the user in case the computer reboots on its own for some reason. When the computer reboots, PureVPN reconnects immediately and protects them in case their torrent program or some other sensitive program also launches on startup.

      However, when I manually launch PureVPN I would like to have the option to select a different Mode or change a setting without having to cancel a connection to do it (as well as having to toggle the Kill Switch as well).

      I would like PureVPN to differentiate between when it was manually launched…

      • Is SecureDNS "secure"?

        If you activate SecureDNS, your DNS requests go through 8.8.8.8 (Google) and 208.67.222.222 (OpenDNS).

        OpenDNS: this San Francisco company is headed by CEO David Ulevitch and former CNet head of product development and business operations John Roberts. It’s been funded by CNET founder Halsey Minor’s fund Minor Ventures. The revenue model is advertising on search pages offered when a misspelling or otherwise unrecognizable URL is entered by users. The company says it will offer additional services on top of its enhanced DNS service as well – suspicious users would probably like to know what those will be before engaging with…

                1. I hope that your VPN account can be set with their own password, rather than account by your system settings
                2. In China, many of your domain names are not connected, you should open the digital IP node, so the connection rate will be high
                3. You can set up a special VPN account, an account can only use one device, but does not limit the number of times a day off (such as 24 hours 200 times, more than disabled. I think you can change)

                  • Add bypass mode

                    Add bypass mode for browsing certain local websites without connecting through the VPN while the VPN is on. It would be great if the app auto-detects the location and auto bypass these websites if VPN is not needed.

                      We welcome your query .

                      It is to inform you that we have a feature on our app through which you can pass traffic of specific app through VPN, while rest of the pass through ISP connection, We called this feature as Kill switch. You can try feature on our windows app.

                    • Launch at startup feature for running the app as administrator.

                      The only way I can get the feature "Launch at system startup" to work, is not to have the app always set to run as Administrator on Windows Compatibility.
                      Now, and this is the crunch, not having the app to run as administrator, will auto launch at system start up but all my settings revert to default, which is undesirable.to say the least. Could you please make a note of this issue to the Developers?
                      Much appreciate.

                      • Display 'VPN-IP' status when hoovering over PureVPN icon in system tray (Windows)

                        A suggestion for improvement and next release of PureVPN:

                        When 'hoovering' over the PureVPN icon in the system tray - a tiny box display comes up showing the current 'VPN-IP' status for self checking and assurance.

                        There's a separate similar tiny software called 'TrueIP' that does the job but I find it annoying for two reasons - a command prompt box keeps appearing and disappears. Also 'TrayForm' appears in the toggling mode which is meaningless.

                        Keep up with the excellent work by the way. Thanks.

                            Would you please introduce a feature so that selected applications (say internet browsers or torrent trackers) of my choice could only have Internet access if VPN is active, so that when VPN connection is lost the privacy is not undermined.

                            • IPv6

                              Support IPv6 because in the USA and many areas of the world that is the only option from the cell carrier. Without this we might as well not use this app on the phone.

                              Because of this I can't recommend this to anyone on the google play store.

                                    The "Duration" stat is really useful, allowing me to see if VPN disconnected overnight or for how long have I been slacking off at this cafe.

                                    Under "Duration", add:

                                    "Received" (icon: yellow arrow pointing down)
                                    "Sent" (icon: green arrow pointing up)
                                    "Total" (icon: both arrows from above, one next to the other)

                                    On desktop, those can easily fit under the same row. On mobile, use your best judgement,

                                    This is something useful for many users who like data, and also gives me an idea of how hard your servers are working to keep me secure. Makes me grateful maybe :).

                                    • Please add a capture screen (like hotels and such use) for VPN Hotspot, and standard access.

                                      I would like to have the option of enabling a capture screen where I can give out a password and user name (in my case to my kids) and log time spent online. It's actually a reward system for the kids, but tracking it is a nightmare without capture screen and such.

                                        Many folks, like me, do not know much about the details of computers and programing. Many folks, like me, would like to use a good vpn but they become overwhelmed by the convoluted and awkward steps to get it installed. You younger folks don't remember DOS computers, but you sure as hell know Steve Jobs. He made Dos look silly. People, like me, could now learn how to use a spreadsheet (Visicalc) instead of how to write some silly code for a data base. Ponder an installation procedure that just installed your vpn without getting deluged with silly questions from…
