When you connect to the internet with Mullvad, they ensure that the traffic to and from your computer is encrypted to the highest standards – even if you are using a public WiFi network at a cafe or hotel. They keep no activity logs, do not ask for personal information, and even encourage anonymous payments via Bitcoin and cash.
Getting started with Mullvad
1. Generate an account number
The account number is the only thing needed to connect to Mullvad VPN. They ask for no email, no phone number, no personal information whatsoever.
2. Pay only €5 per month
Once you’ve got an account number, we give you three hours to try Mullvad for free. After that, it’s only €5 per month for peace-of-mind privacy.
By default, Mullvad configurations allow DNS leaks and for usual VPN use cases this is an unfavourable privacy defect. Mullvad’s GUI client settings have an option called “Stop DNS leaks” to prevent this from happening by removing every DNS server IP from the system configuration and replacing them with an IP pointing out to Mullvad’s own allegedly non-logging DNS server, valid during the VPN connection. This fix can also be applied with the plain OpenVPN method by configuring resolv.conf to use only the Mullvad DNS server IP specified on their website.
