Connecting to the Sonics VPN on a public Wi-Fi

Updated 2022/09/26

Public Wi-Fi can be found in public places like airports, coffee shops, libraries, restaurants, and hotels — it usually gives you the ability to access the Internet for free.

However, using this type of internet connection might compromise your security, therefore, you should use a VPN.

VPN servers encrypt your internet traffic, thus preventing any third parties from monitoring your visited websites, applications used, or files downloaded.

It's important to note that some public Wi-Fi networks might block VPN connections, so to troubleshoot any connectivity issues, try applying the following steps:

  • Change the VPN connection protocol:

  • Connect to different countries in the Sonics VPN application;

  • Reboot your device.
