Android app settings overview

  • Updated

Navigate to the Settings page by tapping the gear icon on the bottom right of the app screen. Let's do a quick rundown of the options:

 

 

 

General

 

In the General options tab, you will find the Quick-Connect Options, Auto-Connect, and the Kill switch feature:

    • Quick-Connect Options – use this feature to choose the location you will be connected to after pressing the Quick-Connect button.

    • Auto-Connect – with the feature enabled, VPN is automatically connected to your preferred location once the app is launched.
       
    • Kill Switch – this feature will disable the internet connection on your device if the VPN connection is unexpectedly interrupted. This ensures that no unsecured browsing can occur until the connection to a VPN server is restored.

    • Shield – allows the app to detect online threats. You can control if you would like to block these threats in the Assistant tab, Shield feature.
