Volta Protect is the easiest-to-use VPN offering on the market today. Just tap Volta Protect in the Settings screen of the Volta app and then tap the Volta Protect toggle to on.
For more advanced users, Volta Protect now offers you the opportunity to further improve the performance of your secure connection by configuring some of the settings.
Configuring Country Selection
By configuring the Country in Volta Protect, you are selecting the location of the VPN servers to which your device will connect. Generally, connecting to servers in the country that is closest to you will generate the fastest internet speeds. For this reason, the ‘auto-select’ option will cause Volta Protect to always connect to the VPN infrastructure that is closest to you.
However, if you want to stream from a service located in a specific country, it may often be necessary to select the country where the streaming service is located. Now you can!
Just tap on the drop-down menu and select your preferred country.
Configuring Encryption Protocol Selection
All Volta Protect encryption protocols are secured with 256-bit AES algorithms. Volta Protect supports three different encryption protocols:
- IKEv2/IPSEC – this encryption protocol is the default used when auto-select is chosen because for most use-cases, it is faster.
- OpenVPN/UDP – this encryption protocol is generally faster for streaming video.
- OpenVPN/TCP – this encryption protocol can often be better for by-passing censorship by network operators.
