What's new in this version

  • CLI users can now use the command block-when-disconnected to activate an extra kill switch that blocks all network traffic, even when you yourself have disconnected from Mullvad.
  • We continue to improve error messages that provide more specific details about the issue at hand.
  • The pop-up system notifications disappear when you open the app, instead of covering it.
  • (Windows) The padlock icon in the taskbar is now visible instead of hidden.
     

A few bug fixes

In the connection screen, click on "connection details" (previously "MORE") and you should now always see both your IP and exit IP.

Windows users, we've hopefully decreased a number of headaches for you:

  • Various antivirus software will now complain a bit less about the app's installation.
  • The VPN connection will be restored more quickly after the computer has been in sleep mode.
  • When you are successfully connected to Mullvad, the network connection tray icon should no longer show a warning triangle signaling that you have no internet (even though you do).
  • We got rid of the WMI error in the installer.
  • If your internet broke after disconnecting from Mullvad: the disconnecting process may now take a bit longer but your internet will remain intact afterward.

And for macOS, the app now detects when your internet isn't working, shows an error message, and stops attempting to make a VPN connection until your computer is back online.
