Beta released: TripMode for Windows

UPDATE: January 15 2016: TripMode for Windows is now out of beta. Announcement coming soon.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve just released the TripMode for Windows beta.

Download now (Windows 10 / 8.1 / 7)

TripMode for Windows is the best way to easily and automatically block Windows updates and other background apps from consuming your precious mobile data when using a mobile hotspot. You may have heard how Windows can blow through mobile data caps by downloading a flurry of updates without you knowing. TripMode can save you from that.

What you should know:

  • TripMode for Windows is entirely free during the beta, and we encourage you to send us your feedback/questions/bug reports! The current version expires on 15 Jan. 2016.
  • Use the right TripMode version for your OS : 32-bit or 64-bit, otherwise TripMode may not run or work correctly.
  • The UI has been refined to take advantage of the version of Windows you’re using. For example, users with touch screens (Windows 10 version) can easily allow or block apps.
  • All the best features of the Mac version are included.

Of course, this is pre-release software and you might encounter a few bumps. We strongly encourage you to provide feedback.
