In October 2020 one of our supporters joked around and said he would gift us a video game if he got access to the SPN before Christmas. I am happy to announce we technically made it.
Yes, as of today, all customers get access to the SPN. Whether you pre-ordered the SPN a while ago or are going to purchase it today. You are in!
This is an exciting moment for all of us. To celebrate and to say thanks, all customers can use the SPN for free throughout December 2021 and January 2022. Every paying person, new or old, gets automatic access.
Of course the free SPN access will not charge for your paid subscription. Only after the free period you will decide when to start your paid subscription.
Since the SPN is in “Alpha”, we highly recommend you check out the current status and capabilities of the SPN.
Both the Portmaster and the SPN receive stable updates every few weeks. But in reality, improvements and fixes are pushed even faster. You can switch your Release Channel to “Beta” in the Portmaster settings to get access to all improvements sooner.
The Portmaster and the SPN have been years in the making. Safing is nearing its 5th anniversary, and concepts of these privacy solutions go even further back. Needless to say we are excited for this new chapter.
In this new chapter, we no longer have to build new products, but we can improve existing products. The products still have their quirks, and our research is not done, but now we can focus our efforts on improving the tools.
So expect plenty of bug fixes, better technical stability and user experience, and of course some cool new features. Especially the SPN has a lot to see forward to; we decided to hide most of its features and only make them visible once we know how to properly present them.
We are super glad the SPN finally achieved this milestone and are hard at work pushing both the SPN and Portmaster into “Beta” and beyond. Thank you for your patience, your excitement, your support and your trust.
