Cloudflare begins testing VPN services for Windows and Mac OS

Internet service provider Cloudflare announced on Wednesday that the DNS application for Windows and Mac desktop users will launch a trial version of the service (VPN) (Warp).

The company announced the service (warp) in April 2019 to maintain user privacy after increasing the speed of internet connection through the application 1.1.1.1. At the end of September, it announced the service releases for Android and iOS as well as a prepaid version (WARP Plus).

CloudFlyer announced the 1.1.1.1 application as a DNS service for ordinary consumers on April 1, 2018, and said at that time that it would increase the speed of Internet connections and make it more private.

DNS services are usually provided by internet service providers to convert domain names like Google.com into real IP addresses that routers and adapters can understand. It's an important part of the internet, but the DNS servers provided by ISPs are slow and often unreliable.

An internet service provider or any Wi-Fi network can use a DNS server to discover all websites a user visits that violate privacy. VPN services also play an important role in navigating users around the world to block websites in their countries.

(Cloud Flare) mentioned in the post that the basic service (warp) will be available for free on Windows and Mac OS systems, similar to the service release from mobile devices. WarP Plus users will be the first to test the service on their desktop computers in the coming weeks, while free version users can register in a queue and then email them if they can use the service.

It should be noted that CloudFire not only provides privacy and security for other VPN services on mobile devices, but also has developed a (warp) service that works best on mobile devices. For example, the WireGuard VPN protocol is also used. The company claims that the battery consumption will decrease compared to other VPN apps. The company also said that the service will also reduce, if possible, data consumption by buffering and compressing the content.
