Some decrease in speed is expected when using a VPN. Feel free to take a look at our article where we have described potential changes in your connection speed.
If you have noticed, that the connection speed has decreased more than it should, try adjustments below.
- Test the speed with several locations.
Sometimes one server location might be faster compared to others. That depends on the server load, the distance between you and the server or some other external factors.
Go to the Locations page on our app and test several different locations. Choose less loaded servers (you will see a gray bubble indicating the load on a specific server)
- Temporarily disable file-sharing (torrents) and antivirus software.
- Reboot your device.
- Reboot your router.
If none of the suggestions above help to increase the speed, do not hesitate to contact our Customer Success Sharks and they will help you out!
