Attention all X-VPN users. We have some news for you. You can now enjoy free, robust OpenVPN support on both Windows and MacOS. This means you'll experience outstanding security and speed, keeping your devices fully protected. Premium users can easily set up OpenVPN on routers, including ASUS, DD-WRT, Tomato, and more. Get ready for a world of secure, encrypted connections that prioritize your online privacy and security.

But before we dive into the advantages of OpenVPN, let's first understand what it is and how it works.

What is OpenVPN and how does it work?

When it comes to VPNs, the protocol used determines how information is transmitted between your device and the VPN server. OpenVPN is a popular open-source protocol that allows users to inspect the code, which adds transparency and trustworthiness. It ensures the security and privacy of your online communications through robust encryption technologies like SSL/TLS.

To imagine you're sending a secret letter, OpenVPN wraps your letter in a protective envelope, making it unreadable to anyone trying to peek. It utilizes advanced technology to ensure the secrecy of your letter.

Using different protocols has a direct impact on the speed, security, and ability to access blocked networks. Different VPN protocols prioritize these aspects differently. Here's a comparison of the performance of common VPN protocols:

Selecting the best VPN protocol depends on your specific needs and priorities. OpenVPN stands out for its transparency, tough encryption, and reliable performance. However, it's crucial to consider the context and implementation requirements to identify the most suitable protocol for your unique circumstances.

Why is X-VPN introducing OpenVPN now?

Open-source protocols like OpenVPN have their advantages and disadvantages. Since the code of open-source protocols is publicly available, it can be easier to identify and potentially become blocked. This is why we did not add OpenVPN to our protocol list in the past.

We have prioritized using a self-developed protocol--Everest Protocol, to address rigorous censorship challenges in certain regions. By using advanced encryption technology, including VPN obfuscation, X-VPN disguises your internet traffic as regular traffic, making it harder to detect and allowing you to access news pages and streaming media content.

Now, as the number of our users increases, X-VPN is also committed to meeting the more diverse needs of users. We understand the need for open-source protocols that provide a combination of security, speed, and encryption. Therefore, we have chosen to integrate the OpenVPN protocol into X-VPN. This integration will ensure that you receive enhanced and improved services, giving you peace of mind when it comes to security.

So, let's now explore how to easily configure OpenVPN on your device.
