The Assignment:


With "On/Off" switches now available, redesign the settings page and make it easy to switch between monitoring an app and configuring its settings.

The Assignment:


A lot of duplication happens in the HTML of our different web projects. Having already built the most common components into CSS component classes, such as `btn-primary`, implement them into the main website to remove duplication and clean up the HTML.

The Assignment:


Seth from the amazing Opt Out privacy podcast recently invited us to be part of Opt Out S02, where he chats with different privacy creators. Most definitely!

In Progress (5)

Being in progress does not imply the project will be completed soon. Plenty will take a while a few might even get discarded. Read the monthly blog updates to follow the progress and conclusion of every project.

The Assignment:


The current installation experience is sub-optimal. Prompt users to reboot their system after installation to mitigate issues.


Revisit our linux distribution, improve the PKGBUILD and add packaging for RPM and Arch. Also, submit Portmaster to AUR.

The Assignment:


With our recent months being focused on the SPN, invest more time into investigating Portmaster bugs and make the whole experience more straightforward and stable.

The Assignment:


Enable users to view connections across all applications. Make it easy to filter based on individual needs.

The Assignment:


Let SPN users select at which server they want to exit for certain apps. Also make it easy to exclude certain apps or websites from using the SPN.

The Assignment:


Write blog posts comparing the Portmaster with different alternatives. What does the Portmaster do better? Where are others better? Be honest.

There is More. A Lot More.

We have plans and ideas for years to come. We will never be "done" but always evolve and progress. I'm sure you have cool ideas for us too! Take a look what we already plan on doing in the longer run.
