Hello, I am using Bitdefender VPN. Why in the PC version there is no option to choose the connection protocol as in Android. For example, on Hydra Catapult
This is work in progress and the VPN development teams will release an update in the following weeks
Hi @Daniel - AVATAR
By default, Bitdefender VPN uses Hydra Catapult on all platforms. It's part of the Anchor Free (HotSpot Sheild) proprietary protocol.
But you're right, with the Android version, there are more options to choose from. See Settings.

Just in case this link may help with additional information.
What encryption algorithm does it use?
Hydra protocol on all platforms, 256-bit AES encryption, or the highest available cypher supported by both client and server, with Perfect Forward Secrecy. This means that encryption keys are generated for each new VPN session and erased from memory when the session is over.

This is work in progress and the VPN developers will release an update in the following weeks.

Thank you for the good news @Alexandru_BD !
We still do not have a way to change the protocol on Windows PC.

An update has been released for Bitdefender VPN on Windows and this includes new protocols:
If your VPN has a different build number, please note that product updates are being released gradually. Once the staged rollout update reaches 100%, you can enjoy the new version’s added benefits.
