Use filtering to show your preferred hosting providers


Looking for more control over your choice of servers? Try filtering the server location list by hosting provider, available in the desktop version of the Mullvad VPN app.

Released today in the 2021.5 app version for Windows, macOS, and Linux, this feature helps to narrow down the server location list from our 21 hosting providers to the ones that you prefer. For example, if you know which providers give you the best peering or speeds, you can filter out the rest.

Here’s how to filter by hosting provider:

  1. Open the app.
  2. Open the location selection view.
  3. Click on the Filter icon, located in the top-right corner, then on Filter by provider.
  4. Check the boxes next to the providers you prefer.
  5. Click Apply to update the location list.
If you filter out the provider(s) of the currently selected location, the app will block your connection until you choose a server or location from the filtered list.
