Settings: Privacy

At Speedify we respect your privacy. If you have questions about our policies, please read our Privacy Policy. We do not log IP addresses, sites, or data that you send or receive through the Speedify service. 

You can access Privacy Settings by tapping on the gear icon in the center of the Dashboard. This will bring up the General Settings screen, where you will find Privacy listed.

Encryption

As a VPN, by default Speedify runs encrypted, securing all of your traffic on its way to and from our Speed Servers. This is what stops your internet service provider or hackers from seeing what you're doing online. Turning encryption off can offer a very small speed boost (3% or so), but we recommend leaving this on to stay safe.

DNS Service

With the new release of Speedify 7.4, you can set a custom DNS server to use with your VPN connection. Different DNS services have different features, which can be helpful. Out of the box, Speedify supports a number of popular DNS services, all with their own strengths:

DNS Leak Protection

Protects you from "DNS leaks", where DNS requests could go around Speedify and reveal your real location to sites you visit.

Internet Kill Switch

Speedify does have an Internet Kill Switch functionality for Windows and Linux. It can prevent your sensitive data from going out unencrypted if Speedify cannot connect to the speed servers. The Kill Switch setting is disabled by default. When Speedify is disconnected and the Kill Switch is enabled, your computer will have no Internet access.

Notifications

We will send you helpful security messages and account updates when necessary

  • Captive Portal Alerts: Notifies you when your current Wi-Fi connection requires action in order to connect to the internet.
  • Streaming Bypass Alerts: Notifies you when Streaming Bypass could be used to unblock an app or service.

Streaming Bypass

Many of the most popular streaming services are known to block VPN traffic. With Speedify's  Streaming Bypass feature, you can choose to allow traffic to these trusted streaming services to bypass the VPN while keeping the rest of your online activity encrypted.
