PureVPN - Windows

  1. "Modes" should not be tucked inside menu bar.

    If it is a big focus for the new windows client then it should be somewhere more prominent in the UI... Such as the options on the left panel of the app.

  4. Allow use of default network DNS so we can use PiHole or other local DNS server to block ads

    One downside of PureVPN's tunneling all traffic is that it does not allow use of the local DNS settings. For most people and most needs that is good, but systems like PiHole that block DNS queries for certain sites get bypassed because those DNS servers are on the local network. It would be great if we could specify the DNS server, even if it is our external IP address (so we'd have to port forward the DNS query back to our local server). This is not that unusual since Raspberry Pi systems are <US$50 to set up and VMs are…

  5. I would like the option to randomize auto connect on startup to a different location each time thus generating a different IP

    This would be helpful in download managers that can run a script to shut down purevpn and restart to obtain a new IP for sites such as Mega with download limits

  6. Make disconnect when VPN down work better for standard Win users

    Make the disconnect network feature work properly if users have multiple NICs / Interfaces or for when it is run by a Windows 10 user who is not admin.

    1. If you have a interface which is local LAN traffic, then do not take that out of service.
    2. When the network is taken down, you should still allow access to the VPN servers so the app can reconnect, as often you have to restart the app to reconnect.
    3. All functions should work the same for standard users of Windows.

  9. Split tunneling for Windows is not usable.

    Obviously, a great number of programs cannot be chosen to go to VPN. In Windows, all services, all programs with automatic start, most of them should go through the vPN.

    It would be very necessary to have something like a "Reverse split tunneling". I mean a genercic option with which all appliations woulg go through the VPN EXCEPT the chosen ones.
    In that way, we could for example be protected for everything except apps that may cause problem if the go through a VPN, like Netflix for example.
    We should have the choice to use the Spplit tunneling or the…

  10. I Need better directions on how to use split tunneling. Google keeps blocking me as intruder sign in. Makes extra work to keep recovering

    Change Icon color to green-red as indicator. I have poor wi-fi signal, so cannot keep with on-off.

  11. Add option to minimize PureVPN to system tray on connect

    Just a minor annoyance. I always minimize PureVPN manually after connecting to declutter the number of open windows.

  12. Change colour of icon in Windows taskbar to RED if VPN disconnected

    Given the current icon shading it is diificult to distinguish between Green (connected) and Grey (disconnected).
    Can you please set it to RED when disconnected, so it is immediately obvious?

    Thank you.

    This is similar to https://ideas.purevpn.com/forums/204643-purevpn-windows/suggestions/10740429-change-icon-color-based-on-connection.

    Hi,

    Usernames are generated by automated systems and can not be changed, even we can not chnage them manually.

    We have plans to add an option for customized usernames in future, you will be updated onve we are about to initiate that.

    Please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts in the future, thank you.

  16. Port forwarding

    I have Plex media server and would like to be able to forward the port so I can access my media remotely.

    Thanks

  17. bring back several features from the classic build

    allow us to sort by ping or location (very useful when trying to pick a server quickly) as of now you have to go through the entire list.

    where are all the protocols, only have 3 to choose from now. would love to see the other protocols return. also, the auto protocol doesn't work very well. i have had to manually switch them many times. this needs improvement.

    would love to be able to separate the servers by mode like in the classic version. if i am wanting to use purevpn for p2p i don't need to see all the…
