  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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...

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Please reduce messages to system.log

    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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. In the Popup Menu of Favorites, show the connection speed (OS X Version)

    Next to the Connect/Disconnect button, it lists your favorite VPN servers when not connected. When the servers appear in the menu, it would be helpful to display the connection speed in the popup menu prior to selecting the server.

  14. Make notification about disconnection sticky

    The notification on Mac OS about getting disconnected goes away after a few seconds. It would be ideal if it would be sticky.

    I think we can change all notifications from VyprVPN to be sticky through the System Preferences, but I prefer most to be transient, and only the disconnection one to be sticky.

  15. Change IP

    Each node, has a pool of different IP addresses. It would be great to have an option to change your IP by a simple click while staying connected to the same geo node.

  16. Unobtrusive reconnect on connection failures (no user distraction)

    In case if the app failed to connect to a VPN server for some intermittent reason other than configuration/authorization error

    (Wi-Fi was temporary not available, or wi-fi requires web authorization by SMS i.e. requires user interaction),

    then it should just silently wait and continue connection attempts until finally connected, not display endless cascade or error dialogs (see screenshot).

    Take a look at the Dropbox or Google Drive clients: they just silently wait and trying again.

  18. MAC OS - Save details per USER

    When i use a different User account I have to change the location always. It would be good to have a different location for each User. When switching User the location should also switch. Some kind of saving per User

  19. Add support for DNSCrypt

    DNSCrypt-OSXClient software encrypts and authenticates DNS packets between your computer and a DNS resolver supporting DNSCrypt. For example, OpenDNS supports it. Is it possible to add support for this in future?

  20. MacOS Dock and Menu Icons Disappear for Vyper and DumpTruck in Dark Mode

    In MacOS, when you use the System Preference > General > Use dark menu bar and dock the DumpTruck icon is invisible. Can you make it color? Also, in dark mode, the Vyper icon is almost invisible with the dock set to dark.
