v2ray obfuscation supported on our Bridges

25 Oktober 2022  PRIVACY

Today we announce that we have added another obfuscation method, v2ray to some of our stbooted bridge servers.

Privacy is becoming more and more essential in situations where restrictive Internet connections and mass surveillance is spreading. In many of these situations it can be challenging to connect to our VPN service.

Our bridges are available for our customers to use for situations where connectivity is challenging.

Our v2ray deployment is accessible by using a plugin to ShadowSocks, which can be set as a custom bridge via our Mullvad app on Windows and Linux. You can find more information about how to get started here. v2ray is a tool to help bypass restrictive networks, it is added as an option alongside ShadowSocks on our bridge servers.

In addition to adding v2ray to some of our bridges, we have also converted the same bridge servers to run from RAM without any disks in use, using our stboot boot loader. You can see all the bridge servers running from RAM on our servers page, by selecting the RAM checkbox.

All bridge servers that run from RAM allow connections via v2ray. These bridge servers running from RAM are the only bridge servers that run v2ray.

Finally, we have added a guide which collates some of the ways to connect to our service when you are unable to access our website, download our app or establish a VPN connection. This could be considered a Hitchhikers Guide to Restrictive Connectivity.
