    Cloudflare Announcing Beta for WARP for macOS and Windows


    Posted: 01 Apr 2020


    Last April 1 we announced WARP — an option within the 1.1.1.1 iOS and Android app to secure and speed up Internet connections. Today, millions of users have secured their mobile Internet connections with WARP.

    While WARP started as an option within the 1.1.1.1 app, it's really a technology that can benefit any device connected to the Internet. In fact, one of the most common requests we've gotten over the last year is support for WARP for macOS and Windows. Today we're announcing exactly that: the start of the WARP beta for macOS and Windows.

    What's The Same: Fast, Secure, and Free

    We always wanted to build a WARP client for macOS and Windows. We started with mobile because it was the hardest challenge. And it turned out to be a lot harder than we anticipated. While we announced the beta of 1.1.1.1 with WARP on April 1, 2019 it took us until late September before we were able to open it up to general availability. We don't expect the wait for macOS and Windows WARP to be nearly as long.

    The WARP client for macOS and Windows relies on the same fast, efficient Wireguard protocol to secure Internet connections and keep them safe from being spied on by your ISP. Also, just like WARP on the 1.1.1.1 mobile app, the basic service will be free on macOS and Windows.



    WARP+ Gets You There Faster

    We plan to add WARP+ support in the coming months to allow you to leverage Cloudflare's Argo network for even faster Internet performance. We will provide a plan option for existing WARP+ subscribers to add additional devices at a discount. In the meantime, existing WARP+ users will be among the first to be invited to try WARP for macOS and Windows. If you are a WARP+ subscriber, check your 1.1.1.1 app over the coming weeks for a link to an invitation to try the new WARP for macOS and Windows clients.

    If you're not a WARP+ subscriber, you can add yourself to the waitlist by signing up on the page linked below. We'll email as soon as it's ready for you to try.

    Linux Support

    We haven't forgotten about Linux. About 10% of Cloudflare's employees run Linux on their desktops. As soon as we get the macOS and Windows clients out we’ll turn our attention to building a WARP client for Linux.

    Thank you to everyone who helped us make WARP fast, efficient, and reliable on mobile. It's incredible how far it's come over the last year. If you tried it early in the beta last year but aren't using it now, I encourage you to give it another try. We're looking forward to bringing WARP speed and security to even more devices.

    The wait is over.

    We are excited to finally announce the availability of the 1.1.1.1 w/ WARP beta for macOS and Windows!

    Since we last spoke in April, we've been hard at work building a desktop-friendly version of our popular iOS and Android apps.

    Now, the future of 1.1.1.1 is in your hands.

    We invite you to be among the first to test it out before we release to the general public.
    Frequently asked questions

    Can we share this link with friends?
    There is nothing stopping you, but we are hoping to roll out the beta slowly to ensure stability.

    How do I give feedback?
    The best way to give feedback is via the in-app feedback mechanism. This helps us follow up with you and by default includes the logs necessary to understand your issue. If that doesn't work, please reach out via the Cloudflare Community.

    What if my operating system is newer or older than your requirements?
    We've been focused on macOS Catalina and Windows 10 1909, but it should generally work around those versions as well. If it doesn't work for you on a different version, we'd still love to hear your feedback. We just might not be able to respond quickly.

    Hi,
    Firefox already uses cloudflare so
    They don't show a difference between the new and old.

    This uses WARP+ which tunnels your connection using a new faster protocol, it's not just the 1.1.1.1 DNS.

    HI,
    Wonder why they left that comparison off the chart though.

    Righto, just got it downloaded to and installed on my Windows 8.1 laptop - it did work for me and does work as we speak.

    How to check that all is well though?

    Also, the link below:

    Cloudflare ESNI Checker | Cloudflare

    suddenly returns 'Your browser did not encrypt the SNI when visiting this page.' Zonk?

    I am pretty much sure all was well before (with network.security.esni.enabled having been set to True in FireFox long time ago and remaining that way - just checked).

    I see no reason to use this, DNS queries is not the reason why page loads are slow.

    Well, having also installed it on Windows 10 PC earlier today I got 3b-type BSOD out of the blue just an hour ago - quoting 'SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION'.

    (I've not experienced any BSODs here since Oct 2018)

    It's gone then...

    Rather interestingly when I have this activated my location is being detected by Netflix as the US allowing me to watch US netflix content.
