Cloudflare has launched VPN for mobile devices. Does not seem to be for computers.

Does not look like an April Fool's thing.

Introducing Cloudflare Warp: Hide Behind The Edge

Technically, Warp is a VPN. However, we think the market for VPNs as it’s been imagined to date is severely limited. Imagine trying to convince a non-technical friend that they should install an app that will slow down their Internet and drain their battery so they can be a bit more secure. Good luck.

This doesn't just apply to your web browser but to all apps running on your phone. Any unencrypted connections are encrypted automatically and by default. Warp respects end-to-end encryption and doesn’t require you to install a root certificate or give Cloudflare any way to see any encrypted Internet traffic we wouldn’t have otherwise.

We’re also working on a premium version of Warp — which we call Warp+ — that will be even faster by utilizing Cloudflare’s virtual private backbone and Argo technology. We will charge a low monthly fee for those people, like many of you reading this blog, who want even more speed. The cost of Warp+ will likely vary by region, priced in a way that ensures the fastest possible mobile experience is affordable to as many people as possible.

ok. the article does mention that desktop version would come eventually. i wonder if i can switch to this from pia. might not be a good idea though as they are not really focusing on the VPN part but performance part.

Just realized that this should provide a good option for users who are on shitty isps injecting ads in browser... Once the desktop app is out. There would be some performance hit. But not much considering CloudFlare has servers in India. And it might even boost performance on websites that are using CloudFlare platform.

the waitlist number in the app has started moving in the last couple of days. it has gone down by a couple of thousands for me. at this rate it would still take months before i get it. though i assume that they would roll out faster in coming weeks.
