After starting the VPN client for the first time, a welcome window will pop up. You’re asked to select a language of your choice. You can choose between “German” and “English”. Confirm your choice by clicking on "next".
Please note: If you select “English” as your language, please continue the VPN configuration in English.
In the next step you’re asked to enter your login data. Your login data consist of your user name and password. Confirm your entries by clicking "next".
Please note:You decided on your user name and password when you signed up. You can also look it up in your welcome mal. If you forgot your password, you can reset it here.
After verifying your login data you can see the user interface of the VPN client. Choose the encryption protocol you want to use (OpenVPN, L2TP and PPTP) by selecting a speed mode (Ultra Secure, Balanced and Highspeed). You can pick any country in order to establish a VPN connection. If the bar is red, you’re not connected to any VPN server.
Before connecting to a server, you should check whether you’re satisfied with the default settings. You can configure them by clicking "Settings".
In the next step you can choose, whether you want to select a server yourself. Normally when you click on any country, the fastest server will be selected automatically. You can also opt for the “killswitch” feature which ensures that your network connection is interrupted when your VPN connection drops.
Only select “killswitch” if you want to stay completely safe. It will disconnect you from the internet when there is no connection to a VPN server.
Please note: Changing the settings is optional and is not necessary in order to use SpyOFF.
You can select the protocol you wish to use when connecting to a server. You can choose between TCP, UDP, PPTP and L2TP. You can find out more about VPN protocols here.
Please note: In order to establish a VPN connection, you must have exactly one protocol selected. You can also choose a protocol by picking one of the speed modes "Highspeed", "Balanced" or "Ultra Secure".
If you checked the option "select servers yourself" in the settings, you can see a list of all available servers on the right side after selecting a country. Besides the location and the server address, you can also see the available capacity and the ping of each server.
Please note: The closer the distance between your real location and the location of the server, the lower the ping and the better the speed of your VPN.
After selecting a country or server, you can establish a VPN connection by clicking "Connect".John, SpyOFF customer service
If you saved your login data, you can skip this step.
You’re asked to enter your login data in the next window. The login data consist of your user name and password. You can save your login data, so you don’t have to enter them again the next time you open SpyOFF. Confirm your entries and login.
Please note: You decided on your user name and password when you signed up. You can also look it up in your welcome mal. If you forgot your password, you can reset it here.
Once the connection is successfully established after a few seconds, the status bar will change from “Protection is not active” to “Protection is active”. You now have a different IP address and your data traffic is encrypted.
You can view your current location anytime.
Please note: You can also check your location by using online tools, such as What Is My IP.
