If you’ve taken advantage of PureVPN’s special birthday pricing (hint: it isn’t too late if you haven’t), you probably should try out their new apps (released a few weeks ago) to complement your new VPN service.
PureVPN has a range of apps available for just about every major platform, including Android and iOS, and your desktop platforms too in Windows and macOS.
All of them are free, of course, and complement your existing paid subscription. The apps all differ slightly by platform, but fundamentally the key features are the same:
- Set up PureVPN for streaming specific content to get the best/fastest servers
- Choose whether to optimise for streaming, security, file-sharing or internet freedom (not sure what that is)
- Choose your VPN type for advanced users (e.g. PPTP, L2TP or SSTP)
- Auto-connect on launch
The mobile platforms have a few extra features which might be quite handy, including auto-redial and the option to set up split tunnelling, which allows you to specify which traffic goes over a VPN (e.g. your internet browsing in a public cafe) and which is un-encrypted and goes direct via your ISP (e.g. streaming local news video). It’s a powerful feature, made easier to access.
