How to use Samsung Max VPN on mobile

Samsung Max is a data-saving application from Samsung that also offers free VPN to protect navigation. The program creates an extra layer of security, which is useful for avoiding data leakage over unprotected connections, such as open Wi-Fi networks in public places.

In addition to offering free virtual private network, the app tracks the connection of all programs installed on the mobile phone and monitors if any undue information is being transmitted to external servers. In this way, the tool becomes important to know if there are threats within the smartphone itself. The application is only compatible with Samsung mobile phones. In the following tutorial, here's how to set up and use the Samsung Max VPN.
