UltraVPN on Android has features and benefits not found on other devices such as iOS. Please review this brief summary explaining each feature and where it can be located.
Once you are signed in to the application on your Android device, please select on the top left the gear icon which shortcuts you to your settings, or please select the person icon on the bottom right and navigate to settings.
We have a few categories to go over so please read the following for each for a brief explanation of what these settings mean and how they can protect your privacy. First, let's talk about Internet Kill Switch.
Protect yourself even further with this feature enabled. Once toggled on, the VPN will disconnect automatically if there is a loss of internet connection from the device. This prevents data from leaking from the time you were using the VPN. Having this enabled will not allow the internet traffic to run in the background once the VPN disconnects. Now let's go into "Trusted Wi-Fi Networks."
Trusted Wi-Fi Networks
With this setting enabled, the VPN will not connect, or it will be disabled if your Android device is connected to a listed network on this setting. Now let's go into "General Settings."
Connection on startup: Enable this in case your device shuts off completely, and you need to reboot using the options displayed on the screen or if you need to turn on the device, this option allows the VPN to connect immediately upon that.
Connect on app launch: Enable this for that once you start up the app, the VPN will automatically connect to the most recent Virtual location.
Disconnect on sleep: Enable this option which will disconnect the VPN once you put your Android device into sleep mode.
Network: You have 3 options you can use to auto-connect the VPN when your device connects to one of these networks. Enable unsecured WiFi when you connect to a public network such as Starbucks, enable secured Wi-Fi in the event you connect to a more private network such as your home, and lastly, enable the cellular network to auto-connect the VPN once your device is connected to LTE or 4G.
Similar to Windows, Android also has a Bypass feature, which can bypass certain sites and apps. Once you manually add an app or site to this feature, the VPN will automatically connect to that app once it has been opened. To add an app or site, tap the bypass option.
You can also Route VPN access which will exclusively connect to the VPN always when the VPN is on. You can add apps to this feature by toggling it on and tapping the arrow.
To disconnect the VPN once you have closed that app or site you will need to go back into the UltraVPN application and disconnect it manually for both Bypass VPN and Route VPN.
