VPN protocol type affects the performance and stability of your connection. Be sure to select the correct protocol when connecting to a VPN server. PureVPN recommends the automatic protocol as it will pick up the most appropriate connection setting for you. But in case the Automatic protocol option does not work for you then you may proceed to switch between different protocols.
Wireguard provides a fast and secure VPN connection and it’s usually used for web browsing and streaming.
UDP is mainly used for streaming and downloading. It provides a fast VPN connection with medium encryption.
TCP is more reliable, but also a little slower, and is usually used for web browsing.
IKEv2 is one of the fastest VPN protocols that provides stable connection and is usually used for streaming and downloading.
