- Small packet size: Here you can enable a small MTU size, if you are experiencing website blockages. This option will automatically adjust it according to the capabilities of your underlying network.
Here you activate a warning each time CyberGhost detects a new Wi-Fi network. If you are concerned about your device's security in public hotspots (which you should), it's recommended to keep this option activated at any time. To define the way Wi-Fi networks should be treated at availability, tap on the resp. entry.
Now choose one of the following actions (all options are available for password-protected networks and open networks alike):
Ask : Every time your device detects a Wi-Fi network, CyberGhost asks you if you want to be protected.
Never protect : If you already have a VPN connection running and you enter a (different) Wi-Fi network, CyberGhost will disable the VPN connection.
Always connect : Every time your device detects a Wi-Fi network, CyberGhost automatically starts a VPN connection.
Terminate connection: By choosing this option, CyberGhost will ignore any Wi-Fi network.
Manage Wi-Fi Networks : Since CyberGhost remembers networks and the reaction wanted on any particular network you can manage here all known networks, such as assigning a different reaction to a specific one, by simply tapping on the respective Wi-Fi Network.
These are all you can currently find on our iOS application and everything you need to customize it to your needs.
