Connect to Specific Location (All Apps)

We wanted VirtualShield to be easy for all users, no matter what device you are on. To achieve this, our design and development team worked tirelessly to ensure a that our user experience was the same across all platforms. As a result, you can achieve many of the same functions in the same exact way, no matter if you're using our iOS app or Google Chrome extension. 

This article will walk you through how to connect to a specific server in the VirtualShield App. 
Note: The screenshots used are from our iOS application, but the same process applies across all our apps.

  2. If you aren't already logged in, please do so. If you need an account, click here to sign up.
