VPN ServiceProtonVPN Windows Clients 1.8.1 crashes
Following the release of new ProtonVPN servers in Serbia, all instances of the ProtonVPN Windows client version 1.8.1 crashed due to a bug. A hotfix is being deployed on the API side, but all users of the ProtonVPN Windows client version 1.8.1 are advised to update to the most recent version.
