2015: Further expansion and rebranding

In 2015, VPN Unlimited went live on Windows Phone (yes, we believed Microsoft would get something right this time around) and increased its server count to 230 across 44 regions. The company also rebranded this year from Simplex Solutions to KeepSolid, reflecting a new focus on providing high-quality security solutions.

2018: Business solutions and new products

KeepSolid's Business VPN from KeepSolid was launched in 2018, designed to protect corporate data. This new offering is aimed at businesses looking for robust security solutions, which extended the reach of VPN Unlimited.


2019: Introducing enhanced protocols

2019 was a pivotal year with several key updates.

Finally, in November, Goals by KeepSolid was officially released, providing a tool for managing business projects.


2020: Expansion of security features

This feature significantly enhanced the security of the service, providing users with an additional layer of protection. By July, VPN Unlimited had reached 25 million users, a testament to its growing popularity and reliability. Later in October, KeepSolid launched Passwarden, a password manager, and the MonoDefense bundle, combining VPN Unlimited and Passwarden for enhanced security.


2021: New protocols and brand protection

2023: Continued improvements and user support

The year 2023 began with the release of VPN Unlimited Version 9 Design on Windows Standalone and Linux platforms. In March, Blogger Mode was introduced, specifically designed for bloggers, journalists, and content creators. This year also saw numerous bug fixes and patches, improved monitoring, and automatic problem resolution on VPN Unlimited servers.

The first quarter of 2024 brought significant updates for VPN Unlimited. In January, the Edge Extension was updated to version 9.0.3 and migrated to Manifest v3. In February, the Mac version of 9.0.0 was completely redesigned to improve the user experience, while Chrome Extension v.9.0.5 received bug fixes and new EMA server mirrors. A new MTU feature was introduced, allowing users to customize the size of VPN packets to improve connection stability, especially for those experiencing connectivity issues with DSL internet providers. A new Reddit community for VPN Unlimited users has also been launched to encourage interaction and provide live updates.


What's Next

As we look to the future, VPN Unlimited is set to introduce several exciting new features and enhancements. The MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) feature will soon be available on Mac and Android, ensuring comprehensive coverage across all platforms. This feature improves connection stability and performance by allowing users to adjust the size of data packets transmitted through the VPN tunnel, catering to various network conditions.

Our team is also diligently working on integrating new protocols to further enhance your VPN experience. While these protocols are still in the testing phase, their rollout will be carefully managed to ensure optimal performance and security. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to enhance our services.
