Windows connecting

  • Updated

There are three ways to connect to a VPN server: 

  1. Clicking the Quick Connect button. This will connect you to your preferred server or a suitable server, which will be selected based on a few criteria, such as the distance to the server and the server load.

  2. Clicking on a specific country in the list of servers. This will connect you to a server within the chosen area. 

  3. Connecting from the system tray. Open the system tray at the bottom right corner of your screen and click on the Atlas VPN logo.

    You will see the Atlas VPN connection menu. Click the Quick Connect button, or a specific server location to connect.

    Once connected, you will see the connection duration under the Quick Connect button. The server you have connected to will be shown at the top under Current connection.

    To disconnect from a server, click the Quick Connect button once more.

    Alternatively, click the pause button next to your Current connection and select how long should the VPN be disconnected. Once the time passes, you will be automatically reconnected to the same server.
