  1. Faster Country Change

    Please allow for faster server change. No need to force user to first disconnect then reconnect. If I want to connect to a new server then disconnection is implied. Let the app handle the disconnect automatically when I request he new server so that I only interact with it once without waiting for the first step to complete.

    Also allow server changes from the drop down menu bar (Mac) without opening the full app window.

    See Tunnel Bear for how they handle this. It’s easy and seamless.

    • Show/hide switch for VyprVPN window

      Provide a switch to either show or hide the viper VPN window on Mac. Especially on startup, could be hidden. I'm always having to click to close it. Small nuisance.

          • Switching server within the same country

            Let's say I am particularly interested in one country and to be more specific let's say USA where you have many servers located around the US country. Wat I am missing with the VyprVPN is a option like swithing server within the same country meaning that every time the VyprVPN is disconnected when connecting once more it would pick a different location within the same country meaning I would also receive a different IP meaning one step up on the security scalle.

            The option I am talking about is simillar to the option picking the fastest server where the VyprVPN…

            • Command line (CLI) support for Mac OS

              Initiative here was to turn on & off VyprVPN as fast as possible so that it requires less attention when it comes to switching. It always happens when you are working in a company that has their own LAN network required to visit internal websites, so you have to switch between internal and external.

              These are the few minimal requirements I can think of to make such a CLI utility small but complete:

              * option to connect to VyprVPN(of course)
              * option of disconnect from VyprVPN
              * option to specify which server(ip, alias, or hostname like tw1.vpn.goldenfrog.com) to connect to(you…

              • Individual app VPN

                You have per app functionality for the VPN / But how about making it also pick what region each app opens with. e.g safari opens with USA and another App opens with another region you previously set...

                Also be great if you could make Safari bookmarks on the desktop open with specific VPN regions

                • App restart should also restart the service

                  Today I could not connect to any servers, tried quitting the app, changing protocols, locations, nothing helped.
                  Service restart helped.
                  Hence, quitting the app should also stop the service.

                  • Keyboard shortcut for "show all server locations"

                    Like cmd + 1 shows logs, cmd + 2 shows connection graph. In China I often have to see which servers are working for the day...

                    • Add Option to Trust Wired Internet Connections

                      Please add the ability to set wired connections as trusted. I don't want my Mac to use VyprVPN when I'm connected to Ethernet, or tethering to my phone/tablet/hotspot.

                      • Show fastest connection OTHER THAN your current country or a user-selected list of countries

                        Often users do not want the fastest server if it is within the country that they are currently in. For example, I may be in Indonesia, but I DO NOT want to connect to an Indonesian server for many reasons. Moreover, I may not wish to connect--ever--to servers in the Five Eyes.

                        • Increase Contrast & Type Size in IP/Connect Time Bar

                          Refers to Mac Version 2.12.0.4820b beta: The new and small UI is better than before however the grey on grey information in the VyprVPN IP and connect time bar is very difficult to read on laptops because of the lack of contrast between the type and the background.

                          This area was made smaller in the new UI and on smaller high res screens it is difficult to find read quickly. Since it refers to the Connect status, perhaps using the same medium blue background would be better along with slightly large and black type face would make it appear more…

                          • In the OS X app, an indicator icon (maybe within the disconnect box) that the kill switch is selected

                            Could you place an indicator icon that the Kill Switch preference is selected? There are a few websites that I cannot access via VPN and having that reminder icon would be extremely helpful.

                            • Mac OS - Multiple User Accounts

                              Separate configurations for each user account that don't impact each other. Currently any configuration changes in one account will affect all accounts on the machine. This means I cannot use Kill Switch.

                                • VPN Override per browser tab

                                  I've got custom DNS added to my hosts file for fake local URLs (http://website.dev/ where website is the name of a project, for example).

                                  I want my browser to always use the VPN, for remote connections, but this prevents my custom project URLs from loading my local content, since they're routed through the VPN.

                                  It would be great if there were something like a VyprVPN browser extension helper where you could set "Bypass VPN" or "Require VPN" on a browser tab basis (similar to the new per-App settings, but per open tab, if you desire something other than the…

                                    90% of all lines in /var/log/system.log are from vypr, making it very hard to find messages I need. Please stop putting so much stuff there.

                                    I have version 2.8.0.3745.

                                    • Better interaction with captive wifi portals

                                      If the device is stuck in a captive portal, vyprVPN should not try to reconnect (if automatic reconnection is enabled).

                                      Right now it would keep trying to connect and would pop up a bunch of connection error message while I am trying to sign in the the captive portal.

                                      • Megabytes instead of Megabits

                                        The monitor should be able to measure speeds in MB instead of Mb. I use MB for everything and I'd lile the numbers to agree with each other.

                                        • Systemwide keyboard shortcut for "Show VpyrVPN"

                                          Often I need to open VpyrVPN while I am working in other applications. It would be more convenient if there is a systemwide shortcut for that.
