The Session Settings can be accessed within the General Settings menu by clicking on the gear icon on the Dashboard.

Redundant Mode

Speedify defaults to Speed Mode, but you can change to Redundant Mode instead:

  • Speed:  This is the normal mode, in which Speedify sends each packet of your data over one connection at a time.  For a speed boost, it may send some data on one connection and some data on the other connection, but each packet of data is only sent once.
  • Redundant: Redundant mode gives you super-reliable internet by sending all of your data over both the cellular and Wi-Fi connections. It uses a lot of data and a lot of battery power, so it's not recommended for normal usage. It's more appropriate for protecting very important sessions, such as a business call over Skype or live streaming a video to an audience. We have a number of reporters and people live streaming video who love Redundant mode, but it's not for everyone.

If you are not sure which one to use, leave Redundant Mode OFF

Transport Mode

This is an advanced setting, which we recommend leaving on "Auto" unless Customer Support has suggested that you try a different setting. It controls whether the connections to the Speed Server use the TCP or the UDP network protoocol. We recommend leaving it on Auto.

Connect at Startup

This is an option available for Android users. It controls whether Speedify should start itself whenever your device starts. This will essentially keep you connected to Speedify at all times. If you wish to manually connect and disconnect, you can turn this setting off. Android users also have the option of Disconnecting on Exit, a setting which can be managed from this screen. If you wish to leave Speedify running when you close the app from the Recents Screen, leave this setting off.

For users on iOS, Speedify will default to its previous state. If you had it connected before you rebooted, it will reconnect after. If you had it disconnected before restarting, it will not connect after.
