Enjoy more privacy on Linux with Atlas VPN
Good news for Linux users! We have launched the Atlas VPN service for the Linux operating system.
Our newly introduced VPN for Linux comes with the state-of-the-art WireGuard® protocol and specialty servers. In addition to the regular servers, Linux users can take advantage of servers optimized for streaming, as well as our unique SafeSwap and MultiHop+ servers for added privacy online.
For now, Linux support is limited to Ubuntu. However, we plan to add support for other distributions, as well as more features, such as Kill Switch, in the near future.
Do I need a VPN for Linux?
Linux is one of the most secure operating systems out there. First of all, it's open source, so its code is continuously inspected by the tech community, leaving less exploitable security flaws. It also greatly restricts users' admin privileges, and compared to more widely adopted operating systems such as Windows, it has fewer malware targeting it.
But when it comes to online, users are still in danger of privacy threats, such as government surveillance, censorship, and snooping.
VPN establishes a secure connection between your computer and the internet, and all of your data traffic gets routed via an encrypted virtual tunnel. At the same time, a VPN hides your actual IP addresses and assigns you a new one in your chosen location.
This way, VPN helps you evade unwanted third-party tracking and interception, overcome censorship when traveling, and secure your data while online, especially if you're using public Wi-Fi.
