Use the Connect / Disconnect options on the main OpenVPN screen as needed.

It is best practice to only use the VPN when you want a secure connection via the UK, e.g., when accessing UK restricted websites and services, or if you are using a public wifi spot and are concerned about security. When using the VPN, all of your data is routed via the UK which could slow down your web browsing slightly, so we recommend disconnecting from the VPN for general day to day web browsing.

Ignore any adverts on the OpenVPN app for "Private Tunnel" and "Access Server " - which are premium packages from the OpenVPN software developers, the OpenVPN Connect program is free!
