My VPN Disconnects Frequently. What Should I Do?
Why Does My VPN Disconnect?
Almost all VPNs work the same way. They use a single Internet connection and create an AES encrypted socket with the VPN server. All of the data that is sent or received by your device must first be sent over the VPN server for encryption. This requires a lot bandwidth. The amount of traffic over your Internet connection increases significantly.
But, the VPN software essentially puts all the eggs in one basket. If something happens to the Internet connection being used, there is no failover. The connection is broken. Your device is disconnected from the VPN server. This can happen if your cell signal suddenly becomes unstable or if there is an issue with the Wi-Fi connection you are using.
Most VPN software does not use channel bonding. This means that even if your device is able to connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi and mobile data simultaneously, the VPN will only rely on a single connection. You don’t benefit from the extra bandwidth or connection redundancy.
Any problem at all with your Internet connection, even if it just momentary outage or fluctuation, and you experience VPN disconnect.
What Can I Do to Fix VPN Disconnects?
You should definitely try a different kind of VPN! The team behind Speedify wanted to create a new kind of VPN that was faster and more reliable that the old VPN model. The Speedify protocol is a new type of VPN for mobility that makes your connection more secure, faster, but also keeps you from getting disconnected.
Here’s what Speedify VPN has and none of the other VPNs on the market has:
- Auto failover
- Channel bonding between different connections
- Many parallel sockets
- Fast and strong encryption for mobile processors
- IP optimization
Speedify allows a mobile device, or a computer tethered to a mobile device, to connect to the VPN server via multiple connections at the same time. Speedify carefully monitors the quality of the connections in the background. Because it was designed with auto failover, if any single connection is lost, all the data packets are automatically rerouted through another connection. The user doesn’t have to do anything to stay connected, and will not even notice the change.
The use of multiple internet connections and several parallel sockets reduces errors, minimizes packet loss and allows the VPN to run much faster than any standard VPN is capable of. Depending on the network connections, Speedify is anywhere from 97% to 188% faster than standard VPN services.
There is no longer any reason to compromise on speed and reliability for the sake of security. Speedify’s revolutionary design means you never have to suffer through VPN disconnect again.
Use all of your connections at the same time
Multiple connections, maximum performance
Speedify can bond any combination of 2 or more Internet connections and will intelligently distribute your online traffic between them for optimal performance.
In the majority of cases, Speedify will automatically detect and start using any Internet connections available to your device - but if you need help we have quick start guides available for most common set ups.
