Cloudflare’s WARP VPN service was launched last year as a free add-on to the company’s 18.104.22.168 app (a DNS resolver application that promises its own free internet) and immediately became popular. (About 2 million people were on the waiting list at a time.) Today, the company announced in a blog post that it will bring WARP to macOS and Windows in beta.
“On April 1, 2019, we released a beta version of 22.214.171.124 using WARP, but by the end of September it became available for public release,” says company CEO Matthew Prince. “MacOS and Windows WARP will have very little latency.”
The beta is first available to WARP + subscribers who use Cloudflare’s Argo network to speed up the internet even faster, and invitations will be sent in the coming weeks. “The WARP client for MacOS and Windows uses the same fast and efficient Wireguard protocol to protect your internet connection and prevent ISPs from spying on it,” says Prince. “Like WARP in the 126.96.36.199 mobile app, the basic service is free on macOS and Windows.” He said Linux support will be available soon.
