February 2024 update: Enhancing your VPN experience

The new year is well underway, and with it comes some exciting updates from the Encrouter team. While Sweden's getting covered in snow and ice, we've been hard at work at our Stockholm office, as always, – with your online privacy and user experience as the main priorities on our minds. So in this blog post, we'll walk you through the latest enhancements and features that have been added to Encrouter.

1. Mobile VPN: use VPN when you're not near your router

At Encrouter, we understand that online security shouldn't be limited to your home network. That's why we're thrilled to introduce mobile VPN, a feature that lets you connect to any of our VPN servers or HomeLink locations from your phone or any other mobile device. With mobile VPN, your online security travels with you, ensuring that your data stays safe, whether you're at home or on the go. This functionality essentially works as a regular VPN app, – you don't need to be connected to your Encrouter Smart VPN router to use it. Stay protected wherever you are!

2. Hidden Wi-Fi's: stealthy network security

For those seeking an extra layer of privacy, our hidden Wi-Fi feature is here to help. You can now create hidden Wi-Fi networks, making them invisible to outsiders. This is a small, but handy functionality for those who value discreet network access. It's perfect for situations where you may want to keep your Wi-Fi network concealed from prying eyes – be it neighbors or other home visitors that you would rather not share your network access with!

3. Wi-Fi Groups: simplifying network management

Managing your home network security just got easier with Wi-Fi Groups. This highly requested feature allows you to connect specific Wi-Fi networks to designated groups. For instance, if you have a Wi-Fi network with the SSID "USA", you can assign it to a group with USA VPN settings. This means that any device connecting to the "USA" network will automatically use the specified VPN settings. Say goodbye to the hassle of manually configuring each device through the app. Create Wi-Fi networks for different VPN server locations or other settings, and connect your devices effortlessly.


4. Social Login: more convenient sign-in options

For your convenience, we've streamlined the login process. Now, you can sign in to your Encrouter using your Facebook, Google, or Apple credentials. This makes getting started with Encrouter even easier, so you can focus on enjoying enhanced online security without any hassle.

5. Bug Fixes and Enhancements: a smoother overall experience

In addition to these exciting new features, our team has been hard at work addressing user-reported issues and making enhancements to improve your overall Encrouter experience. As always, we're committed to providing a smooth and secure online environment for all our users. So if you notice an issue with Encrouter Smart VPN router or the app, do not hesitate to let us know at [email protected], and we'll be sure to add it to our to-do list.

We're thrilled to kick off 2024 with these updates, and we hope you'll enjoy the enhanced functionality and convenience they bring to your Encrouter experience. Your security and privacy remain our top priorities, and these improvements are just the beginning of what's to come.
