How to Change Protocol on AngelVPN iOS App

It’s important to choose the right VPN protocol, as it can impact the stability and performance of your connection. While AngelVPN recommends using the automatic protocol selection option, you can switch to a different protocol if necessary.

If you experience issues with the automatic protocol, you can try selecting a different protocol manually. Be sure to choose the protocol that works best for your needs and provides a stable and secure connection.

To switch between VPN protocols in the AngelVPN app, you will need to disconnect from the VPN first. You can view the currently selected protocol by disabling the “Automatic Protocol Selection” option.

Protocol Guide:

Wireguard: (Recommended)

UDP is mainly used for streaming and downloading. It provides a fast VPN connection with medium encryption.
