Cloudflare begins testing VPN service for Windows and Mac OS

Internet services company Cloudflare announced today, Wednesday, the launch of a trial version of the (VPN) service (Warp) on its DNS application for Windows and Mac desktop users.

The company announced the service (Warp) in the month of April 2019 in order to maintain the privacy of users after increasing the speed of their Internet connection through the application Then it announced the launch of the service - along with the launch of the paid version of it (WARP Plus) - for Android and iOS in late September.

Cloudflare announced the launch of the app on April 1, 2018 as a DNS service intended for ordinary consumers, and said at the time: It would increase the speed of the Internet connection and make it more private.

DNS services are usually provided by Internet service providers in order to convert domain names like into a real IP address understood by routers and adapters. It is an essential part of the Internet, but the DNS servers provided by ISPs are slow and often unreliable.

Internet service providers or any Wi-Fi network can use DNS servers to determine all the sites users visit, which is a violation of privacy. VPN services also play an important role in helping users around the world navigate sites that are blocked in their countries.

(Cloud Flare) explained in a post that the basic service (Warp) will be available free of charge for Windows and Mac OS systems, similar to the service version for mobile devices. But the paid service subscribers (WarP Plus) will be the first to test the service on the desktop devices during the coming weeks, while the free version subscribers can register in the waiting list, then an email will be sent to them when the service is available to them.

It is noteworthy that in addition to providing the privacy and security provided by other VPN services on mobile devices, CloudFire designed a (Warp) service to work better on mobile devices, it uses - for example - the WireGuard VPN protocol, which the company says: It will reduce battery power consumption compared to other VPN apps. The company also says that the service will also reduce data consumption by caching and compressing the content if possible.
