Auto-connect feature in new Android release (2020.4-beta1)


You requested it, we added it. Here are the latest features in Android version of the Mullvad VPN app.

What’s new in this version

An Auto-connect option is now available under the Preferences menu. Enable this and the app will automatically connect to a server when it launches. If your Android device has the “Always-on VPN” feature, you can combine these two functionalities to automatically secure your connection from the moment you power on your phone.

When connected, you’ll see the new quick reconnect button (the ↻ symbol). Tap this button and the app will reconnect to another server in your chosen location.

You can now add an app shortcut tile to Android’s Quick Settings menu. A single tap on the tile will connect or disconnect you while tapping and holding opens the app.

The app now comes pre-bundled with a list of server locations.

All IPv6 traffic is now routed through the VPN tunnel. This improvement addresses a bug in which IPv6 traffic could have potentially leaked outside of the VPN tunnel instead of being blocked.
