About: Data Limits

When you install Speedify for desktop, we do not set any default data limits. However, you can easily set monthly and/or daily data limits on your internet connections. This is especially useful when you are tethering a phone to your computer; you'll want to avoid overage fees and penalties from your carrier.

You can adjust or disable these settings at any time by tapping on the Connection Bubble at top of the dashboard and toggling the daily or monthly limit options. You also have options when setting a limit: you can either throttle your connection to 200 Kbps or shut it off completely when you reach a limit.

When you reach 75% of the data limit you set, Speedify will warn you. When you hit the full data limit on a connection, Speedify will stay connected, but will stop using that network connection. You will be prompted to either let Speedify continue using the network connection or to stop using it. Of course, if that's your only internet connection, disabling it will take your device offline. This may be better than using more data than you have on your contract. You also have the option of imposing a rate limit when you reach a data limit. This will keep you connected, but slow your connection speed to 200 Kbps.

Note: Speedify only tracks data usage when you are actually connected to the Speedify VPN.  If you don't always use Speedify, you should set usage numbers that are lower than your actual monthly carrier cap.
