This article describes how some of the configurations are adapted for particular operating systems or particular devices. 

macOS/Android

  • VPN Protocol
    Depending on your local infrastructure, ISP, and internet connection type you may want to set a default protocol. While OpenVPN is an industry-standard, IKE is more economic in terms of CPU usage and WireGuard is the highest performer in terms of speed and security.

iOS

  • Auto Reconnect
    Automatically reconnect to the VPN if the session disconnects or the device connects to Wi-Fi or 3G networks-without requiring login credentials.

Windows

  • Use VPN Interface DNS
    In case split tunneling is applied, to prevent DNS leaks, the app will only allow DNS requests via the DNS server specified on the VPN network interface. If split tunneling isn't applied this will be done by default.
  • Notify Reconnect
    Display notification when the Windows application reconnects to the VPN.
