Today, we are excited to announce Guardian Firewall for macOS as a beta release for our Guardian Pro subscribers. It has been a long road, and we have worked tirelessly to complete a fully native macOS application that feels right at home in your menu bar. Our first release of Guardian has been laser focused on iOS. We continue to ship major upgrades, fix bugs, and enhance the user experience. We never slowed our pace of shipping industry leading features such as custom curated Blocklists and the Exceptions capability.
The European continent is a region with a reputation for being “difficult to support” in the world of building interconnected networks. From this viewpoint, it is important to understand that there are many different spoken languages in a fairly small geographical area which means having many servers to choose from, and in different regions, is very important. Planning out the many regions and effectively addressing the needs of our Swiss customers presents itself with a unique challenge.
We, at Guardian, are excited to announce that recently, Barcelona has joined the Guardian Firewall global network of servers. This new region, with plenty of bandwidth available, will serve as our first location, of many, planned for the beautiful Mediterranean area of Southern Europe. We are excited to continue to expand our diversity and improve user experience for folks globally with the addition of more non-English speaking regions. As life gets back to allowing for safe travel, rest assured you’ll be able to protect your privacy through Europe with more locations to come.
We don’t want to know who you are. We consider user attributable information to be a liability. This moral foundation defines the core of every technology decision we make at Guardian. Rather than take my word for it, we encourage anyone, willing or interested, to use an intercepting proxy (such as Charles or Burp) to review traffic from our app being sent over the network. We’re going to go on a journey to break down what information is being sent, what it means for you, and how we maintain a high standard of user privacy and security for Guardian subscribers.
By: Kevin Bradley @nitoTV Time for another trip down memory lane, into forbidden territory on tvOS. While working on Chimera/Electra jailbreaks for tvOS, I was reminded of something I stumbled across over a year ago. If you hold down the Play/Pause & Volume down buttons on the Siri Remote for different intervals you will either get a stackshot or analytics to run on the device. These actions appear as follows:
By: Kevin Bradley @nitoTV While recently working on a new feature for Guardian Pro users, I had an epiphany moment that I could not pass up taking a moment to explore. The feature would grant the ability to generate extra VPN authentication credentials and share mobileconfig files from the iOS application (Guardian Firewall) to other platforms such as macOS. Of course, it got me thinking, why can’t this work on tvOS?
