Manually setting up a VPN service on a router has always been notoriously complicated, frustrating and unnecessarily confusing…. until NOW!
Introducing the FlashRouters Router Privacy App - the simple browser-based solution to connect a VPN service on a router. Just a couple clicks and secure your entire home network.
Developed by the DD-WRT & VPN experts at FlashRouters, the FlashRouters Router Privacy App integrates support for most top VPN services.
The FlashRouters Privacy App works just like an app for Android, Windows or Apple iOS except it’s located on your router. And there is no separate app to install.
However, when you connect to VPN with the FR App, it is not just your computer that you are securing, instead you are securing every device in your home at once. Simply enter your VPN login information, search for your preferred VPN server location, and click Connect to get started.
In many cases you may not want your entire home network to tunnel through your router VPN connection, and so we have also built enhanced VPN management options in the FR Privacy App.
Choose to start the router VPN connection as soon as you connect to the Internet. Reboot your router at any time and automatically restart your VPN connection.
Click the VPN server dropdown list and type in the name or country for your preferred servers to quickly find your desired location.
Worried about IP Address and DNS leaking? Check The Global Kill Switch and the FlashRouter will block Internet access if the VPN connection is inactive. If you ever disconnect or lose connection to your VPN service, the Global Kill Switch will make sure that your ISP IP address does not leak. Checking the box will instantly activate Kill Switch on your FlashRouter.
Instead of setting up your VPN on one device at a time with different instructions for each device, you only need to setup VPN once.
Certain devices like streaming players, gaming systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices do not have native support for VPN client connections. These devices need security too, and with the FR Privacy App all devices that connect to your home network can now connect through your VPN service.
If your VPN provider limits the number of simultaneous connections to their service, you can use just 1 connection for a FlashRouter to cover ALL devices in your home with no device connection limit.
By device management in the FR App Options tab to easily enable or disable VPN on any network device with the click of a button.
Instead of listing all servers in alphabetical order, we can create additional sorts for By Country views where users can select the least loaded or server closest to them geographically. This helps VPN providers to properly distribute the bandwidth load in real time across servers. (*For Select Participating VPN Providers)

App user interface is optimized to be viewed via mobile without need for a separate mobile app install.
Once you establish a VPN connection within the FR App, select any other server from the dropdown list and click Reconnect to quickly update your location. No need to make any manual settings changes.
Easy-to-use toggle setting that tells the FR App to start up the VPN network connection as soon as the router connects to the Internet.
If public certs and private keys are required for user or server authentication, then extra boxes will automatically appear on the main VPN connection page for users to input accordingly.

I give this router two big thumbs up. This is an amazing router. I have been a fan of netgear for a while, but wow, this changed my mind. DD-WRT is the life changer. It is awesome. Seriously, networking will be the same.
This is a very high level router. The power is mind blowing. I have never had a router like this. My network is way better now. I feel like I am really harnessing the power of the Internet with this router. My old router seems pathetic in comparison. Accept no substitute.
