With Betternet, you get access to multiple features and settings that can improve your privacy and security with our VPN. Please take a look at each feature below.
This feature, if toggled, will help the VPN reconnect automatically if it somehow gets disconnected. This will eliminate the need to manually connect the VPN if it does get disconnected.
Prevent IP leak
Allowing this will prevent your IP from being detected while connected to the VPN. Once connected to Hotspot Shield your public IP has already changed, but this feature can prevent any sites, cache or cookies from leaking your IP.
If Betternet suddenly disconnects, enabling this feature will stop the data flow, protecting you by not allowing the internet traffic to run in the background once the VPN disconnects.
Unsafe WiFi Hotspots
If this setting is toggled, then Betternet will attempt to automatically turn on or connect when you are connected to a Unsecured WiFi hotspot.
Safe WiFi Hotspots
If this setting is toggled, then Betternet will attempt to automatically turn on or connect when you are connected to a secure WiFi hotspot.
Betternet supports split tunneling via a feature it calls"Exclude Domains". It enables you to exclude certain apps and websites from the VPN tunnel. You need to enable the feature and add the apps or websites you want to go through your regular ISP connection. This can help with email issues, and access issues to certain sites and apps.
If you are experiencing connection issues or in some rare cases access issues that cannot be fixed, we recommend switching to different protocols to identify what protocol best works for your network. You may find success when switching protocols. We always recommend Hydra as it is our internally developed protocol with super-fast connection speeds.
