CactusVPN Windows Client Version 6 Released
We’re happy to announce we’re launching a new and improved version of our Windows VPN client. We urge all of you to update from the current version (v5) to the new version (v6) as soon as you can, since the new VPN client version comes with many improvements that make the app significantly more convenient to use.
To update, just download the CactusVPN App v6 for Windows and install it.
The sign-in process is much more streamlined
As of version 6, there is a single sign-in screen where you only need to use your CactusVPN account email address and password as credentials. Once you sign in, you get direct access to both our VPN and Smart DNS services.
Before, you had two separate sign-in screens for our VPN and Smart DNS services, you had to use your VPN username and password or your assigned Smart DNS key to log in, and you had to use the VPN and Smart DNS services separately.
Improved DNS leak prevention feature
We’ve added more options for you. Now, you can choose from three types of DNS addresses to use:
- CactusVPN DNS
- Google Public DNS
- You can now choose which active service you want to use by default.
- New performance improvements have been made, and we also fixed some bugs (non-threatening).
How to Install the New Windows Client Version
Since the interface of our Windows application has been improved as well, we decided to write up a new tutorial showing you how to install and set up the new CactusVPN client. Just follow this tutorial to get started.
