When it comes to online safety, one of the top VPN services available has just upgraded its infrastructure to accommodate a larger user base.
The change means that all major platforms supported by Atlas VPN—Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and even Amazon Fire TV—are now all covered by the NordVPN-owned service.
Currently, only Ubuntu users may make use of this, but the business has promised to expand availability to other Linux distributions in the near future.
Linux users will soon have increased security
Despite Linux’s reputation as one of the most secure operating systems, its users are nonetheless vulnerable to invasive actions like governmental spying, censorship, and snooping.
According to Ruta Cizinauskaite, the PR Manager of Atlas VPN, “VPN can assist Linux users in protecting their personal information from unwanted third-party tracking and interception by encrypting their Internet traffic and putting a layer of security between their Linux computer and the internet.”
Additionally, all of Atlas VPN’s functionality is now available to Linux users.
The cutting-edge WireGuard protocol is supported by Atlas VPN, and it allows for significantly quicker connection rates than OpenVPN while still providing great privacy protections.
The Atlas SafeSwap infrastructure eliminates the need for users to repeatedly transfer servers by providing them with a large pool of dynamic IP addresses. Furthermore, it has a MultiHop function that allows users to have their connection routed via numerous server locations, providing additional anonymity and encryption layers.
There will be further protections in the future. A kill switch feature is included to prevent data leakage in the event that your VPN connection drops.
