How To Turn Off Vpn

I recently encountered the need to turn off my VPN, and I understand the frustration of trying to figure it out. But fear not, as I’m here to guide you through the process step by step.

Checking Your Device

First things first, you’ll want to head to your device’s settings. For most devices, this involves locating the network or VPN settings.

For my Windows PC, I navigated to the network settings and found the VPN section where I could disconnect or turn off the VPN connection.

Mobile Devices

If you’re using a mobile device, the process may vary slightly. On my iPhone, I went to the settings, tapped on “VPN,” and then toggled the switch to turn it off.

Using VPN Client Software

If you’re using VPN client software, you might need to open the software and find the option to disconnect or turn off the VPN connection. Look for a prominent “Connect” or “Disconnect” button on the interface.

Remember to Disconnect

It’s essential to remember to disconnect from your VPN when you no longer need it, especially if you’re using a public Wi-Fi network. Leaving the VPN connection active unnecessarily can impact your internet speed and performance.


Turning off your VPN can be a simple process once you know where to look. By following these steps, you can easily disconnect from your VPN and resume regular internet browsing without any hassle.
