About Vilfo

Vilfo is created by the team behind OVPN.com, but is an entirely independent company. Years ago, we started the development of a product called OVPNbox - which was a router based on pfSense.

We learned a lot by building OVPNbox, and several lessons were tough. Vilfo is the result of all that learning.

The software for Vilfo was released to OVPNbox owners in January 2018. Their feedback and experience was be the basis on further improvements until we shipped all pre-orders in May 2018.

Vilfo AB is located in Stockholm, Sweden. The team consists of Alexander Koval, Nikolay Nizruhin, Andy Tsymbal, Tamas Szabo, Maximilian Holm, Ruben Rehn & David Wibergh.
