Cloudflare has announced that it is adding a VPN to its DNS resolution application 188.8.131.52. The 184.108.40.206 service, which first arrived on mobile in November, is currently attempting to accelerate mobile data speeds by using the Cloudflare network to resolve DNS queries faster than its existing mobile network. The new thing is Warp, a VPN created by Cloudflare that tries to redirect its traffic to do it even faster and also encrypts it when possible for greater security and privacy.
In addition to offering the privacy and security of other mobile VPNs, Cloudflare has designed Warp to be better optimized for mobile devices. For example, it uses the WireGuard VPN protocol, which according to Cloudflare should reduce battery consumption compared to a typical VPN application. Cloudflare also states that Warp should reduce the use of data by caching and compressing the content whenever possible.
Although VPNs are often used to trick websites and services so they think that & # 39; When accessing them from a different location, this is not a feature offered by the Cloudflare application. Instead, the VPN works behind the scenes to increase speed and privacy.
Cloudflare says that it does not write any user-identifiable data on the disk, and also says it will not use it to direct you to ads. Instead, Warp will rely on a freemium model to earn money. You can use the standard Warp service for free or pay for Warp +, which uses CloudFire's Argo technology to further increase network speeds and reliability. The company was not willing to commit to the prices at the time of publication.
Although you can not register for Warp today, Cloudflare has opened a waiting list where you can claim your place by updating the existing 220.127.116.11 application to the latest version and registration. Next, you will be notified when the service is available for you to use.
