MysteriumVPN app for mobile Android now available

Mysterium Network is a fast and scalable transport security layer. Mysterium is reinventing privacy, starting with decentralizing VPN on blockchain which means that our architecture can’t actually keep logs of your traffic. Instead, your traffic data is distributed across the network with no single node having complete access to who you are and what you are doing. We have been open source from day one. Everything is transparent. You can check our source code and even contribute.

As we continue our mission to create a distributed, trust-less and sustainable network providing open access and privacy to all Internet users; our MysteriumVPN app is now available for mobile Android phones on the Google Play store. Anyone will be able to participate in the world’s first decentralized blockchain VPN network from the convenience of their Android phones and compatible devices. You can download the app and use for free during our alpha testing (also available for Windows and macOS desktop versions). Help us build, improve and continue to reinvent privacy, security and freedom on the Internet by providing your feedback.

The app is built with P2P architecture with focus on highest privacy and anonymity using powerful AES-256 encryption, reputation mechanisms, and layered protection protocols. MysteriumVPN secures your data communication channel by utilizing highest-grade AES-256 encryption with SHA384 cryptographic hashing.

MysteriumVPN app for mobile Android

The MysteriumVPN mobile app uses the OpenVPN protocol. OpenVPN is a open-source commercial software that implements virtual private network techniques to create secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access facilities. It uses a custom security protocol that utilizes SSL/TLS for key exchange. Future versions of the MysteriumVPN app will also integrate the WireGuard protocol as well.

MysteriumVPN node country Search

The first version of the app for Android will include basic functionality that will allow browsing through and connection to the list of available node countries in the decentralized network TestNet. You can also help provide a secure connection to those in need by hosting your own VPN node. You will be able to see your current IP address and connection status at the top of the screen. The bottom part of the screen shows connectivity statistics like session time duration and amount of traffic received and sent. Other functionality includes a Favorites feature (by marking the star icon) so that you can save your preferred connections for quick and easy access.
