How to Download Lantern or Update to Newest Version

Many connectivity issues can be solved by upgrading your Lantern application to the latest version (see our Status Page for details). Upgrades can usually be made from within the app. Alternatively, you may download by Direct Download, the Lantern Website, or GitHub. Desktop versions of Lantern should update automatically, but downloading the latest version from the links below may help if there are connectivity issues that prevent the automatic update.
