For the history buffs

These are just a few of the milestones we’re particularly proud of:


  • March 2009 – The Mullvad VPN service launches!


  • July 2010 – We started accepting Bitcoin payments.
  • September 2010 – Customers could start paying in cash!


  • April 2014 – We swiftly assessed and mitigated the Heartbleed vulnerability and then proved our hypothesis of its critical impact on OpenVPN.
  • September 2014 – We demonstrated that OpenVPN is vulnerable to Shellshock, resulting in admin access, and warn our competitors before general disclosure.
  • September 2014 – We launched IPv6 support




  • June 2019 – Our new project on System Transparency was revealed, and we called upon our community to develop and encourage transparent systems.
  • July 2019 – Mozilla partnered with us to utilise our global network of VPN servers for its own VPN application.
  • August 2019 – We succeed in porting open-source firmware to an off-the-shelf server, a first in history and getting us one step closer to our vision of System Transparency.
  • October 2019 – We added Malwarebytes as yet another partner using our server network.
