In early April, Cloudflare, the giant of the CDN, announced Warp, a free VPN that would be available to all users who used their DNS 22.214.171.124. This VPN could be activated from the applications for iOS and Android, but it was said that it would arrive later and that there was no specific date. But the wait is over and Warp is now available.
Warp is a VPN that can be used in three modes: the free, Warp + or Warp + Unlimited. It integrates with DNS 126.96.36.199 and can be activated from now on mobile applications. The free mode has no traffic limitations, so it can be used without problems. However, those who opt for Warp + Unlimited and, therefore, for their subscription, may obtain some advantages.
More speed and performance in exchange for inviting friends (or paying)
Reviewing the benefits of Warp, there are several elements to consider. The first are that it is free and secure. Cloudflare VPN combined with DNS 188.8.131.52 figure from end to end all the connections we make from our mobile, according to the company, so that operators will not know our location or have access to our data.
On the other hand, it should be noted that we cannot choose the location of the servers to which we connect, so it may not be the best alternative for those looking to bypass the geographical restrictions of multimedia content services, for example. Regarding the Warp + and Warp + Unlimited modalities, it is worth mentioning that the first one is based on a referral system and that the second one is paid.
With Warp +, for each friend that signs up you will get 100 MB of browsing per month up to a maximum of 1 GB per month. From Cloudflare they say that with Warp + “we route your internet requests to avoid bottlenecks”, which is “even better (than Warp)” and that it is faster, but they don’t detail how much. The Warp + Unlimited plan is, indeed, like Warp +, but unlimited. It is striking that its price on Android is 4 euros per month, while on iOS it amounts to 5.49 euros per month.
- Warp: unlimited and free.
- Warp +: more powerful than Warp in terms of performance and based on a referral system.
- Warp + Unlimited: as Warp +, but unlimited. Its price is 5.49 euros on iOS and 4 euros on Android.
The subscription is carried out through the Apple and Google platforms, so if at any time you decide to cancel it you will have to do it from the App Store or Google Play Store. To activate it, simply download the 184.108.40.206 app on your mobile and, in the settings, select “220.127.116.11 with Warp”. If you do not want to use the VPN, you can continue using the DNS as before.
