Support stealth protocol on Windows
Dear Proton team,
I recently bought Proton VPN pro and it is working fantastic on my phone. As an Iranian user of Proton VPN I have trouble connecting on Windows. I have to try for ages to connect to a server.
It works great on my phone using stealth protocol.
absolutely. why no?

This is disturbing information and I had no idea a country was limiting their people's access to the internet or privacy features. Although I'm not in Iran, I am a ProtonVPN user and consider that a kind of universal connection, i.e. the Internet and user privacy is extremely important regardless of country or politics. I think if a group is being targeted or denied access, that's the equivalent of denial of universal human rights. Yea, I think privacy should be added to the UN charter of universal human rights. So, if a country is allowed to target and abuse ANY group, it eventually affects all of us. I consider ProtonVPN to be the equivalent of a vaccine that protects against diseases (invasions of privacy can be a contagious disease/mindset). I'm extremely grateful to Proton for providing me this privacy and suggest it to friends. Is there anything ProtonVPN users can do to help?
The same thing you are talking about is happening in Egypt.
All protocols are blocked except for the new Stealth protocol, which works efficiently on mobile apps.
I really hope the Proton VPN devs work on adding the Stealth protocol for desktop apps.
I'm not in Iran, but I've been dying for the Stealth feature for Windows because so many sites I go to, especially CloudFlare, block me completely or add 3-4 Captcha roadblocks when they detect my VPN connection.

Just an update, ProtonVPN is now completely blocked on all protocols other than stealth. So I can't use proton VPN on windows anymore. This feature is crucial, even an incomplete stealth protocol for us beta users would be great.
And other desktop platforms (Linux, macOS).
