It's a simple explanation with a simple solution – download the latest app or config files!
Today, 22 March, we're replacing our expired root certificate, and you're likely using an incompatible app version or old configuration file.
Read on to find out if you're affected and what you need to do.
Simply download the latest app version. Versions 2018.5 and newer are not affected.
If you're using Mullvad on
then you need to download new configuration files. Any files downloaded after 19 November 2018 are fine.
You don't need to do anything.
Our root certificate lets your computer know that the VPN server it's trying to connect to is actually one of ours instead of belonging to someone pretending to be us (flattering, but not nice).
When Mullvad launched in 2009, we set the original certificate to last for 10 years. Now it's time for a new one!
