Whitelisting Trusted Networks in KeepSolid VPN Unlimited

Your more convenient online experience

What is the Trusted Network feature?

The trusted networks feature allows you to whitelist the WiFi networks you consider completely secure. The result? VPN connection will be automatically disabled while on the trusted internet connections. You may ask: VPN software protects my online activities, why would I ever wish to disable it? The answers might prove not so obvious, so let’s check out some of the most tangible cases.

Preserve access to LAN devices

When connected to a VPN server, you may lose access to other devices in your local area network (LAN), if any. That is caused by VPN software changing your real IP address to a virtual one, leading to you no longer being recognized as a part of, and allowed in, your local network.

Sure your network is secure, and need constant access to your LAN devices, e.g. a printer? Then whitelist this secure network. It is far more convenient than manually disabling/enabling VPN connection on each occasion.

Avoid speed loss

Another benefit you gain by whitelisting trusted networks is avoiding speed loss. Let’s be honest, using a VPN does affect connection speed. The very fact that the data is encrypted by a VPN service inevitably reduces the speed to some extent. Besides that, it also depends on such factors as VPN server workload, the distance from you to the server, and possible throttling of VPN protocols by ISPs.

The speed loss is generally compensated by such undeniable benefits as data privacy and enhanced security. However, if your network is already secure and private, why damage the speed? Just whitelist it and enjoy your online experience to full extent.

How to whitelist secure networks

To enable the feature, select Trusted Networks in the Settings tab in the KeepSolid VPN Unlimited app. Then, find the toggle in the top right corner on the Trusted Networks screen (we’ve taken the macOS version of the app as an example below):
