What is the Quick Connect feature?

  • Updated

Atlas VPN for Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS has the Quick Connect feature to help you save time while connecting to the VPN. By clicking the Quick Connect button, you will be connected to the server, which can be selected in the app settings. Let's look into how you can do that on different operating systems:

 

 

Windows and macOS

 

To access the Quick Connect feature, click the Settings button on the left side of the app window and navigate to the Connectivity tab.

Once you choose the category, click on the drop-down menu below, and choose the specific server you would like to be connected to after clicking the Quick Connect button.
 

Note: if you choose Nearest Location or Fastest Location, you will not be able to choose the specific server. The server will be selected based on the distance to the server, or the server load.
