The latest version of the Mullvad VPN app finally brings WireGuard to Windows users.

This release does not include any updates for Android which is still in beta.

What’s new in this version

WireGuard comes to Windows

Windows users, the wait is over! You can now turn on the WireGuard protocol directly in the app.

New CLI commands

Terminal users, try these out in the command line interface:

  • Improved WireGuard port selection by automatically falling back to port 53 if connection fails.
  • (Linux) A few bug fixes have improved overall stability and DNS management.
  • (Windows) Addressed a number of issues relating to the TAP adapter, which should eliminate problems experienced when the computer goes into sleep mode.
  • (Windows) Fixed the issue of users getting stuck in the app’s offline state.
  • (Windows) DNS management is more stable.

Additions and changes
