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. Tapping on a country from the recent connections list. If it is your first time using Atlas VPN, the list will be empty.
When connecting to a server for the first time, you will get a prompt asking you to set up a VPN connection on your device. Click OK to accept the request. This is necessary so that the Atlas VPN app could create and manage a VPN tunnel.
After you connect to a VPN server, the connection status in the application will change to protected.
To disconnect from a server, click the Quick Connect button once again.
