We evaluated the impact of the latest TunnelVision attack (CVE-2024-3661) and have found it to be very similar to TunnelCrack LocalNet (CVE-2023-36672 and CVE-2023-35838).

DNS traffic can leak outside the VPN tunnel on

Android can leak traffic when:

  • A VPN is on but no server is configured
  • A window where the app is re-configuring the tunnel or stopped/crashes

Researchers at Leviathan Security have released some interesting findings that illustrate why your VPN service may not be as secure as it claims.

From the story:

"VPNs work by creating a virtual network interface that serves as an encrypted tunnel for communications. But researchers at Leviathan Security say they’ve discovered it’s possible to abuse an obscure feature built into the DHCP protocol so that other users on the local network are forced to connect to a rogue DHCP server.

“Our technique is to run a DHCP server on the same network as a targeted VPN user and to also set our DHCP configuration to use itself as a gateway,” Leviathan researchers Lizzie Moratti and Dani Cronce wrote. “When the traffic hits our gateway, we use traffic forwarding rules on the DHCP server to pass traffic through to a legitimate gateway while we snoop on it.”"

We were recently made aware of multiple potential DNS leaks on Android. They stem from bugs in Android itself, and only affect certain apps. We have reported them to Google, and are working on fixes.

I can't visit some websites using with browser on

A Reddit post said to enable IPv6 in the Mullvad App, but that did not help.

For example, the website https://ip.me does not work.

Seems to be any website that has IPv6 enabled.

Has anyone any insight on this?

@mullvadnet Can the "Lockdown Mode" being on by default change be reverted? I just spent an hour and a half troubleshooting my Fedora Linux install only to find the issue was that Mullvad updated and enabled that setting. Mullvad doesn't open on boot on the machine, and it wasn't in the network settings. It was extremely frustrating to figure out the issue was related to an app update.

@mullvadnet I ask for a feature that I called "profiles". It acts like:
• Profile A: Netflix, WhatsApp, etc.
Profile B: Bank app
Profile C: Other apps/services

Each profile is a server (or a group of them) specifically tailored for that purpose (i.e. Netflix friendly).

Every time an app is foreground, Mullvad app switch in the profile where that current app belongs.

This solve the case where an app uses the IP of another app. This introduce separated channels. Every channel (or profile) has its app/services running within.

Since Mullvad uses the (Android) app permission " Query all apps" it knows perfectly which app I am using in a specific moment (foreground I mean).

@mullvadnet please add this new feature: when an user push the lock button, the selected server never changes. It just can changing IP with another one over time, but cannot changing the server. I need of this feature for Netflix. Just one server runs properly to download some tv series.

There are two options already in place for this:

  • Choose the exact server you want, which can be done already by using the dropdown menu from Switch Location
  • Create a Custom List for the servers you wish to use. This is not yet available on Android however.

@mullvadnet I've just looked into the Anycast routing of your public DNS resolvers. For me, dns.mullvad.net routes to London, while Frankfurt would be much faster. Upon more investigation, you seem to only advertise the gb-lon-dns-301.mullvad.net server over m247. Could you publicly peer at DE-CIX? See also https://www.peeringdb.com/net?asn=57138

Hey @mullvadnet, is it just on my /e/OS device (1.19.1) or do you know about network routing issues with your app? I constantly got problems where I need to restart a new VPN connection to get not just internet but also the per-app VPN bypassing to work again.

Perhaps your app and @e_mydata's "Advanced Privacy" features are meddling with each other? Is there anything known about bugs? Gonna skim system logs otherwise.
