    is vpn always on ? Or do i have to engage every time in access the Internet?

    Hello Gerald, Whenever you connect to the VPN server, it will stay on as long as the server is up and there no issues on your network, if you will get disconnected, you will get a notification about it. So to answer your question, no, you don’t have to re-initiate the vpn every time you wish to surf the internet.
