Launch on startup (Windows)

The VirtualShield Windows application will open automatically each time you power on or reboot your computer. This will ensure you don't have to open it every time you want to connect.

You may not see the app because it launches in the background. To open it again, click the red/green shield icon in your System Tray (next to your clock).
If you can't find this icon, press the up arrow (^) to Show hidden icons.

If used in combination with the Connect automatically option, VirtualShield will remain connected to our servers at all times.

Note: This feature is entirely optional and can be enabled or disabled at any time.

  3. Inside the settings panel, select the Launch VirtualShield on startup option.
