#3: New feature released, apps updated, unlimited or free internet, Bestari

For the last two weeks we have been working hard on something new and we didn't have any updates for that weeks, so here is our third edition of weekly updates

If you missed the previous update about Anti DPI and Rotating IP, you can read it here.

In summary:

Anti DPI - FinchVPN Anti DPI will attempts to circumvent censorship, by transforming the OpenVPN traffic fingerprint to looks like innocent data packets, so that DPI will not able to detect you are using OpenVPN.

Rotating IP (The Onion Ring) - You will be connecting to FinchVPN onion server. Your VPN IP address will be automatically changed every 1-5 minutes.

SOCKS VPN - Socket Secure (SOCKS) is an Internet protocol that routes network packets between a client and server through a proxy server. It will tunnel FinchVPN connection over SOCKS proxy.

Software/Apps
At last latest version of Windows and Android app made it to public with new feature and improvement, you can view the detailed change-log below of this post.

Website:
Nothing much changed, but we added Indian Rupee, Turkish Lira, Azerbaijani New Manat estimated currency conversion to https://www.finchvpn.com/pricing/

We are planning to have more guides and implement an affiliate system in coming weeks.

Unlimited or free internet - Unable to connect to VPN (Turkey, Vietnam, Guatemala, Chile, Colombia)
Before you connect to VPN, you need to make sure that you are able to visit websites or download any files, you will not be able to connect to VPN without using your data pack/your network quota.

We are aware that there is some group of users are using VPN to trick the ISP to get unlimited free Internet, if you are using VPN to exploit these loophole, well we are not saying it's illegal to use it with VPN, but we will not be responsible if your ISP patched that in future. However we will try our best to provide a workaround for you.
