How do I know if Bitdefender VPN is on?

If you’re wondering whether or not Bitdefender VPN is running on your device, there are a few ways to check.

First, open the Bitdefender Central app and go to the ‘Protection’ tab. Here, you should see a toggle switch for ‘Bitdefender VPN’. If this switch is turned on, then VPN is enabled.

Secondly, you can also check in your device’s settings menu. On iOS devices, go to Settings > General > VPN. On Android devices, go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > More > VPN. If you see ‘BitdefenderVPN’ listed as one of the configured VPNs, then it is indeed running.

Finally, another way to tell if Bitdefender VPN is up and running is by looking at the icon in the status bar/notification area. On both iOS and Android devices, there will be a small key icon present when VPN is connected.

Overall, it’s quite easy to tell if Bitdefender VPN is enabled on your device or not. Just open up the app or take a look at your settings menus and you should be able to see right away!

Bitdefender Total Security is a premium security and privacy pack that includes the multi-awarded Bitdefender Total Security software. It also includes a powerful VPN with UNLIMITED traffic and a feature-rich multiplatform Password Manager.

If you’re not sure whether or not your VPN is active, there are a few steps you can take to check.

First, if you’re using a desktop application, look for the VPN icon in the system tray. If it’s present, that means your VPN is running.

Second, head to our IP check page. If you see your current location and IP address, that verifies that your device isn’t currently tunneled into the VPN network.

If neither of those methods work for you, try contacting your VPN’s customer support team. They’ll be able to tell you definitively whether or not your connection is active.

If the VPN is working, the IP address shown will correlate to the location you are connected to. You should also see a message confirming that your IP address is secured.

Another way to check if ExpressVPN is working is to look at your network properties. If you’re on Windows, you can do this by right-clicking the WiFi icon in the taskbar and selecting “Network properties.” Under the “Network” tab, you should see that your connection is now “ExpressVPN.”

If you’re still not sure, you can try visiting a website that shows your IP address, like With ExpressVPN working, the IP address should match the location you’re connected to.
