Version 4.0.0
We're excited to announce our 4th and largest update to Passel Protect. In this update we've made numerous UI / UX changes and performance improvements, making 4.0 our best release yet! Protect now features native Ikev2 implementation for faster speeds, better efficiency and more reliable connections. We have also added more powerful servers with better network capability in nearly all of our regions.

Here's what's new: 

The windows application now functions entirely from the system tray, similar to the macOS app.
Huge stability improvements across all operating systems.
Obfsproxy can now be enabled in the settings. This will allow you to manipulate how your web traffic looks when under Deep Packet Inspection. Internet providers and governments use DPI to block VPNs or siphon the bandwidth available to a given protocol to discourage people from using it. Obfsproxy focuses on the way your web traffic appears while Protect is keeping you anonymous and secure.
We’ve simplified the settings menu, redesigning it so you have easier access to the most essential features.

Version 3.0.2

Fixed a bug that broke the client when logging in without an internet connection.
Improved the connect on boot feature for Windows.
Fixed an issue with the region list being duplicated.
Removed number of connected devices from settings.
Fastest Protocol no longer on by default for new installs, Forcefield will default on OpenVPN.

Version 3.0

We're excited to announce our third version of VPN for desktop. As we've increased our product offerings over the last year we've had to work with many different VPN protocols along the way. Forcefield 3.0 will automatically choose between L2TP, Ikev2, and OpenVPN protocols, and connect to the fastest one. Forcefield now takes VPN protocol, server load, system compatibility, and ping into consideration for choosing the fastest server within any given region.

Here's what's new: 

We've added new Tor nodes that are hosted by us and provide much better performance
UDP / TCP connection toggle has been added to the settings menu
Connection indicator icons have been added to the Windows system tray and Mac menu bar
