CURRENT IP LOCATION: This is your current effective Country and IP address that the rest of the internet sees for your device.
SELECT COUNTRY: Select the country that you wish to connect to. If you have a Global subscription, you can choose which country you wish to connect to by tapping on the drop down menu and scrolling through the list of countries.

Connecting to the VPN
To connect to our VPN service, make sure you have set the country and protocol as required and then tap on Connect.
The App status circle will turn orange in addition to the Status which will state Connecting. You may notice a few messages in the status bar if you expand it.
After a few moments the VPN should connect and the app status will turn green with the Status Connected to confirm connection.
You should also notice that the action button in the application has changed from Connect to Disconnect.
The connection details will also update, and should now reflect the country that you were connecting to.
In the above examples, we were physically in Malaysia but after connecting to the VPN, the location has changed to United Kingdom.
Once you are happy that the VPN has connected, simply tap the home button to minimize the app and you can then open the app of your choice and surf the internet as if you were in your chosen country.
Disconnecting from the VPN
To disconnect the VPN, simply launch the app and tap Disconnect.
The app status circle icon will switch back to red if the VPN is disconnected.
