CDN provider Cloudflare have unveiled Warp, a VPN for their 126.96.36.199 DNS service to provide security to iOS and Android users for mobile. With this launch, Cloudflare will be encrypting all the data (traffic included) that goes through all web
Cloudflare say that their 188.8.131.52 DNS launch was aimed to bring speed and privacy to iOS as well as Android users. However, they say that this was not enough to secure all the data for their mobile users since users browsed through multiple web applications.
After digging deep into user behaviour, Cloudflare found that users faced problems when it came to changing between LTE and Wi-Fi systems and switching Wi-Fi networks. They say that these hiccups hindered users from making the most out of their internet services.
By launching Warp, Cloudflare believe that they will allow users to overcome connectivity and speed issues while using the internet over mobile devices. They say that this VPN service is designed to withstand connectivity rigors for mobiles by compressing and caching the content automatically.
Matthew Prince, CEO at Cloudflare commented that since it was their priority to make the service faster and reliable, they have built Warp across a UDP-based protocol. He also added that with this protocol, their tests have shown better performance over TCP, which lacks mobile compatibility.
