    Hi @akteur

    On that one, I'm not sure, as when you select a server it should stay and not disconnect and search for a different server, i.e. to "Automatic connect to the optimal server".

    You could try uninstalling or reinstalling (bottom of the page) the app using the instructions from this article, and see if that helps.

    Or, you can wait for @Alexandru_BD and see if he has any helpful ideas for you.

    Kind regards,


    @Flexx thank you for the kind, optimistic words of my VPN abilities :)

  • Hello @akteur,

    Do you have the Autoconnect setting for websites categories setting enabled?

    If enabled, this can change to auto-connect to a different location instead of what you have previously selected.


  • Thank you for the info, I always want to know it and I am glad somehow I found your post. Now I know, if I want to know something, whom to ask :)
