Had to uninstall the safety dot app as it completely slowed down the downloading in my DiGGz xenon kodi build

Thanks for letting us know about this issue. Have you tested the vpn safety dot with other build downloads? It could be that you were experiencing slow download speeds due to high load on the build server. Also, it may be worth looking at the VPN server you are connected to. We will look into this issue and comment back.

Tks so much for your response.I haven’t tried the safetydot with another build.I really like my Diggz build and I don’t know if this particular build creates a higher load on the server. My VPN is IPVanish and it’s set to use the best server in canada which varies between Vancouvet, Toronto and Monreal. I would be very interested to hear from you further after you have had a chance to look into this issue. Thanks again. IAN

We tested out this service including Diggz builds and we did not notice any difference. My thoughts are that the VPN server you were connected to at the time may have been overloaded thus creating slower speeds or Diggz hosting servers were experiencing issues at that time. IPVanish can be tricky to get the best connection. We highly suggest manually selecting a server and running speed tests. You can see their full server list and load on their website under your account page. Use that list to see which servers have the highest load and try those first. Sounds backwards but we have found that with IPVanish you tend to get faster speeds on server with more users. This takes some trial and error but by running a speed test on each server you should be able to find a good medium. Most Kodi builds come with a speed test addon. We suggest using that instead of a speed test app. This will give you better results for streaming on Kodi. Good luck!

Hi. I assume that this can’t be downloaded & used for iPads / iPhones as I would like to make sure I’m connected when using online banking. Sometimes I forget to connect my IPVanish

Sorry, this is for Android only. When using a VPN on iPad/Phone you can look at your top bar and you should see VPN if there is an active VPN connection. You may be required to swipe down on it to see the full status.
