If you are experiencing battery drain issues while using the PrivadoVPN application on your Samsung device, this may be due to Samsung's battery optimization settings. In such cases, changing the battery optimization settings for the Privado app can solve the problem.


Please follow these steps (these settings can vary between phone models and versions of the Android OS, the steps below cover the basics):


1. Go to the Device Settings -> Apps menu:

2. Find PrivadoVPN and click it:

4. Go to Battery:

5. Select the "Unrestricted" option (enabling this option would allow PrivadoVPN to consume less CPU and battery, as it won't be limited by OS.):

6. Restart the PrivadoVPN application and connect it.
