It was announced that ibVPN will become (is) part of StrongVPN. I received an email today that my account will be migrated to StrongVPN soon. I assume it means for the ibVPN app to keep working an update is needed to support StrongVPN. Does anyone know if this is in the plans?
In ibVPN

    I've been told there is a problem as StrongVPN do not supply an API unlike ibVPN. The app developers aren't sure what they can do. I may try to knock up a manual config next week

    I received the same communication and something else earlier in the week. I have pinged the team responsible a couple of times now but have heard nothing back.

    Today I received another email from ibvpn:
    Now that ibVPN users have been migrated over to StrongVPN, it is time to begin shutting down ibVPN itself.

    Starting Monday November 23rd, ibVPN will no longer function. Please ensure you have completed the StrongVPN password email reset so you may begin taking advantage of StrongVPN + DNS. If you have not received a password reset email from StrongVPN check your spam folder or reach out to the StrongVPN support team.

    Thank you for choosing ibVPN as your VPN of choice, and we look forward to continuing to serve you as StrongVPN.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our support team here.

    The ibVPN Team

    I have seen nothing yet to say we have to migrate and that the connection using the ibVPN set up will be stopping. If it does, I expect there will be an announcement and we will act accordingly. Note this is a third party app and not a Clearcenter maintained app, but we are in contact with the developers of it.

    Hi Nick,

    I received an email that stated:
    Your service will be transferred over to StrongVPN automatically, and your subscription cost will remain the same so long as your account remains active. After your account is successfully migrated, the StrongVPN team will reach out with further instructions.


    So there appears to be a migration, which is also mentioned here:
    Welcome ibVPN

    Cheers,

    Dries

    So far, from what I've received from ibVPN so far, no change appears to have been announced to the service. We will obviously keep our eyes on it.
