In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about auto-connect.
This feature will save you some time because you won't need to open the Surfshark app and click any button to connect to Surfshark servers.
If you turn on Auto-connect, your device will connect to the VPN as soon as it finds Wi-Fi or ethernet connection on your device.
The best part about it - you can manually set to which location you want the VPN to connect to automatically. It can be the fastest server, nearest server, a specific country, and city, or even a Static IP or Multi-hop server.
How to use auto-connect?
- Open the Surfshark application on any device and go to Settings.
In this article, we will demonstrate auto-connect on a macOS device, but the procedure is identical on every device.
- Select VPN Settings.
- First, toggle the Auto-connect switch to the On position. The toggle will light up green when it's active. Then, once auto-connect is enabled, select Preferences.
- In the new window, click on the Fastest location. There you can select the server to which you'd like to connect automatically.
- Finally, here you can select to which location you want the Surfshark application to connect automatically. There is plenty of options including Static IPs and Multi-hop servers.
Congratulations! Now you know everything about the auto-connect feature, and how to use it!
