How to Increase the Speed of Intego Privacy Protection VPN

If you believe that your Intego Privacy Protection software has a slow internet connection, there are some settings you can change which may improve the situation.


Change the VPN Server

By changing the VPN server to another location which is closer to your current geographical region, you may be able to improve speeds.  Additionally, some servers may be more popular than others.  If a server is congested it can have an impact on the speed.  Selecting a server in another region which may not be as congested can make your connection faster.


In general, selecting a server with a lower latency will typically be faster.



Change Protocol or Connection Type

Intego Privacy Protection connects to VPN servers using a certain protocol and connection type.  You can make changes from the Connection section in the Settings menu.

For the Connection Type users can choose between UDP and TCP.  In general, TCP is considered slower, but more reliable.  UDP is typically faster, but the connection may not be as stable.  You can also switch between Protocols to see which provides a faster connection for you.  Intego Privacy Protection offers OpenVPN and WireGuard

By changing these settings, you may find the optimal configuration for your needs.
