Service Update 2018-2

New Windows Application Released

I am excited to announce the release of our new Windows application!

Now available for download via the ‘Application Download’ tab in the ‘My Account’ section of the 4TFY website, this new application is faster, more secure, and more aesthetically pleasing than previous versions. We listened to your recent feedback and set about designing an application that ticked all of our customers boxes.

An updated installation guide can be found on the Tutorials page.

As always, we would love to hear your feedback. What do you think of the application? How can we make it better? Do you like the layout? Do you like the features? What is your least favorite part? Your feedback is always appreciated and helps to ensure our service is the best it can be!

MacOS Application Coming Soon

To complement our Windows application, we will soon be launching our new VPN application for MacOS users. We are currently in the final stages of packaging, testing, and code signing this application and expect to release our MacOS package within the next 10 business days. We hope our MacOS users are as excited as we are!

Bonjour Paris!

Bonjour! Nous sommes ravis d’annoncer que nous …

Sorry… I got a little carried away… Let’s try that again…

Hello! We are excited to announce that we have released .ovpn configuration files for our first French VPN server. This sever supports P2P and, like all 4TFY VPN servers, has been setup to ensure your online activities are kept private.

You are now able to download the .ovpn configuration files for this server from your 4TFY control panel. We will be adding further French servers to our .ovpn files listing in the coming days.

As always, we would love to hear your feedback (especially the results of speed tests). Your feedback is always appreciated as we rely on it to ensure our service is the best it can be!

Speaking of feedback…

We recently received a user’s request for us to add TCP-based .ovpn configuration files alongside our existing UDP-based .ovpn files. We are proud to say that we took this request on board and that our website has now been updated to provide you with this option.

For those that require a little help in this space, we suggest continuing to use the UDP files on offer. UDP typically runs faster than TCP (especially over mobile links). Where using UDP configuration files is not an option, please download and load the TCP files instead.

Once again, we would love to hear your feedback!

If you have any issues using our .ovpn files, or any part of the 4TFY VPN service, please contact our friendly support team.

Application Update

In the coming days we will be releasing a major update to our application suite. More information regarding this update will be presented in our next blog post.

Finally, thank you for your continued support of the 4TFY service!

Cheers!

Service Update 2018-1

OpenVPN Support

Today we have released the first set of our .ovpn OpenVPN configuration files. These files will allow you to connect to our VPN servers while using the OpenVPN client application. We have released these with the goal of providing you a greater level of freedom while using the 4TFY service.

At this time, we have released files for servers in the United States, Singapore, Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands. We expect to add several servers from our French location in the next few days.

You are able to access these files via the 4TFY website by selecting the ‘OpenVPN Files’ tab in your account panel. You are also able to access how-to guides for Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, and Linux via the 4TFY Tutorials page (https://4TFY.me/tutorials).

We would love to hear your feedback regarding this new service feature. Any feedback (especially internet speed test data or suggestions for how we could improve our offering) would be well received. We would like to give a big thanks, in advance, to anyone and everyone who contacts us and provides feedback! Thank you!

Scheduled Maintenance

We have scheduled some web server maintenance for the next two weeks. There will be two outages (2 hours and 45 minutes respectively). While our website will be offline during this time, the 4TFY service will remain online and will be unaffected by this work. We will confirm the exact dates and times for this outage as the date draws nearer.
