A. Exposed! Your device is unprotected

What does "Exposed! Your device is unprotected" mean?

This message indicates that your device's internet connection is vulnerable. When connected to public Wi-Fi (coffee shops, airports) or unsecured home networks, your online activity and data could be exposed.

B. Your device is protected!

What does "Your device is protected!" mean?

When you see "Protected" (usually green text), it means your VPN is active. Imagine a secure tunnel between your device and the internet. A VPN creates this tunnel, encrypting your data as it travels. This encryption scrambles your data like a secret code, making it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept it.


  • A VPN hides your IP address, making your online activity virtually untraceable.

  • This protection is especially important on public Wi-Fi networks, where your data is more vulnerable.

In short:

  • Exposed: Your device and data are vulnerable on unsecured networks.

  • Protected: Your VPN encrypts your data and hides your IP address, adding a layer of security.
