  • To enhance user experience, Streaming Mode features a simplified interface with fewer settings, making it easy to use for everyone. While in Streaming Mode, advanced settings and protocols are not available for customization.
  • Streaming Mode allows communication only through ports 80 and 443, which are commonly used for streaming services. This means that when Streaming Mode is enabled, only traffic related to streaming activities can pass through these ports, ensuring a smoother and faster streaming experience.
  • Maximum Device Limit for Streaming is set at 5 simultaneous connections per account:
    To uphold a high-quality streaming experience for everyone, there is a defined limit on the number of devices that can simultaneously stream content while in Streaming Mode. This policy is implemented to effectively manage bandwidth and sustain optimal service performance.
  • Understanding Device Limits:
    The device limit is in place to guarantee fair access and peak performance for all FastVPN users. By restricting the number of simultaneous streams, we prevent network congestion, ensuring that each user enjoys their streaming sessions with high-quality video and audio. Understanding these limitations is particularly important for families or users with multiple devices. This measure ensures that everyone in your household can indulge in their favorite content without interruptions, creating a seamless and enjoyable streaming experience.
  • Exploring Alternative Options:
    For those seeking unlimited concurrent connections, FastVPN offers Privacy Mode as an alternative. Privacy Mode provides flexibility for users requiring more simultaneous connections and advanced settings to meet your demands. Simply switch to "All" servers to activate Privacy mode.

Enjoy streaming with FastVPN – where performance meets flexibility!
