Turning Auto Reconnect On or Off on Mobile Devices

You can turn Auto Reconnect on or off manually. Auto Reconnect allows your VPN connection to automatically reconnect if there is any connection failure.

If you have a preferred server location selected, then Auto Reconnect will attempt to reconnect you to that server. If it is unable, then it will reconnect you to the nearest server based on server traffic and distance at the time of the location. For more information, see Setting Preferred Server Locations on Mobile Devices.

Note:The Auto Reconnect function works only for iOS devices.

To turn Auto Reconnect on or off:

  1. On your main screen, tap the WiFi Security app icon.

  2. In the upper right corner of the screen, tap the Settings icon.

    The My Account menu displays.

  3. Tap Auto Reconnect.

  4. In the Auto Reconnect area, do either of the following:
    • Tap the slider to the left to turn Auto Reconnect Off.
    • Tap the slider to the right to turn Auto Reconnect On.

    Once the feature is enabled, it runs in the background and protects you by giving a warning message each time your phone connects to an unsecured Wi-Fi, and WiFi Security detects a security threat.
