Vivaldi 6.7 tests Privacy Guard (VPN) in collaboration with Invisv with new technology

Vivaldi is launching a new feature called Privacy Guard with the new version 6.7.3319.12. This is a currently experimental feature in collaboration with INVISV. This is a VPN with a new technology called Multi-Party Relay.

After installing the new version, the new icon appeared in the toolbar. As can be seen in the image, the test is valid until May 11, 2024. Vivaldi itself has always provided many settings to protect privacy. And now they are also collaborating with INVISV to offer a VPN.

“When Privacy Guard is enabled, it encrypts your web traffic and hides your IP address from the websites or services you connect to. In this sense, it works similar to a VPN (virtual private network). The difference lies in its architecture. I started Many other browsers add VPNs, but a VPN isn't the ideal technology for the job, especially if you want to use it as a privacy feature.A VPN centralizes data about your browsing in one place: the VPN provider.

Instead, Privacy Guard uses an important new technology called Multi-Party Relay, which splits data about your browsing across multiple steps and companies so that none of them sees the full picture.

Vivaldi describes it in more detail in the blog post. I would like to know from you whether it was interesting and useful to you as a user. You should also find out whether Vivaldi or INVISV will offer this service, if integrated, for a fee or in several tiers (free, basic, corporate).

Additional fixes have been made in this preview release.

Invisv was founded and is led by two network security experts, Paul Schmidt of the University of Hawaii and Parath Raghavan of the University of Southern California. Her advisors include Bruce Schneier and John Callas. They developed Invisv technology during their time at Princeton University and the University of Southern California. We met them a while ago and were very impressed with the design and performance of their MPR. We thought it would be interesting to introduce it in Vivaldi and let our users try it out.
