Load balancing is the feature that automatically chooses the fastest VPN server for the user based on ping time and server load. It chooses the fastest not the nearest server for the best connection.
Seamlessly integrated with load balancing algorithm, when you choose your VPN server connection location, a city or a country, the QuickConnect IPVanish VPN application will determine which server is the most optimal for establishing a VPN connection and connects to that to ensure the best possible connection.

With the The kill switch feature the app will automatically stop (or kill) all network activity if a VPN connection is interrupted and the network connection will be reactivated from within the IPVanish VPN apps. This feature is to put your privacy to new level.
IPvanis VPN app has a new level of security for the freedom fighters called OpenVPN Scramble to use in nations where the OpenVPN connection protocol can be detected and the the traffic terminated. When OpenVPN Scramble is ON this feature will counter the deep packet inspection as known as firewall blockade.
On Demand VPN
IPVanish VPN app has three ‘On Demand’ settings that gives you more customization to privacy settings. Apps includes ‘Always On’, customization options for Network SSIDs and web domains. The ‘Always On’ option, will automatically connect to the VPN any time Internet traffic is detected. With the customization options for Network SSIDs and web domains you are able to enter a list of previously saved websites or Wi-Fi networks that, upon connection, will automatically initiate the VPN.
The LAN Blocking is brand new and cool feature. When the LAN blocking is ON, no device on the local area network (LAN) can communicate with a user’s device. In addition to this, LAN blocking also prevents any user’s outbound traffic from going over the LAN.
Automatic IP Switching
One of the most popular features earlier only in Windows client is Automatic IP switching, which is now available in all platforms, iOS, Android, Mac and Windows apps with IPVanish VPN v3.0. When enabled the users IP address will auto change based on a pre-selected time interval of either 45, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.
IPv6 Leak Protection
Internet is transiting from using IPv4 addresses to IPv6, the inconsistency of IP versions from downloading advertisements, images, and files can leak a user’s true IP to a third-party. When IPv6 Leak protection is on all Internet traffic is forced over IPv4 as opposed to a combination of both IPv4 and IPv6 and your your connection will be fully protected.
IPVanish VPN app has also many of smaller changes, tweaks and upgrades to new VPN software, of course including Improved crash reporting. With these above mentioned changes IPVanish turn to be one of the leading VPN service providers what comes to VPN apps.
