5 Most Common VPN Issues & Solutions in Poland

Warsaw

The Polish government had found a way to improve the overall security in the country from threats such as terrorism by enacting a nationwide surveillance law monitoring its citizens and their internet activities.

While such measure is necessary to combat terrorism, people's privacy is at stake.

Mass surveillance simply makes people even more scared than they already are. Surveillance could easily be misused and the people are the ones that suffer.

Gladly, we can still hide from prying eyes by making use of a VPN.

A VPN is surely an awesome solution that can make your internet browsing habits anonymous and private. With the increasing demand for a more secure internet connectivity, many VPN companies are sprouting all over the place - all are claiming to provide the complete VPN experience.

The advancements in technology have definitely made life more convenient for us. Unfortunately, such technologies could still fail without any warning. So, if you are not technically well-versed, then you may get frustrated when such incidents occur.

And VPNs are not exempted from technical issues. As a matter of fact, most VPNs often experience technical difficulties from time to time. No matter how perfect the VPN service may be, users will still encounter common VPN problems. Even
the top VPN for Poland can sometimes have glitches.

Normally, the good ol' reboot technique usually does the trick. However, for issues that won't easily go away such as unable to connect to servers, there are quick and straightforward solutions that users can follow to fix certain issues.

App / VPN Client Issues

Software Bug

There are several issues relating to the VPN application and one of which is that the VPN client app won’t start up. You have already rebooted your device multiple times but that does not seem to be working at all.

One solution you may want to perform is to uninstall the app and then reinstall it again. In some cases, the VPN app may not have been installed (or downloaded) properly which is causing it not to open up altogether.

Re-installing the VPN app usually fixes the issue. In other cases, the VPN client app may just be outdated. The VPN provider usually informs users of pending updates so you might have overlooked the notification.

Update the VPN app and it should work just fine - the performance may even improve upon updating the VPN client app.

Server-related Issues

Server issues

If you are unable to connect or establish a connection to a VPN server, the issue might be due to server overloading. VPN servers can only handle a number of connection requests at a time. Once the connection limit has been reached, the VPN would simply stop accepting more connection requests.

What you can do is to try connecting to a different server. The VPN service provider should have multiple VPN servers available. Connect to another VPN server and that should work just fine.

If the issue still persists, the problem may be due to ongoing server maintenance.

Technically, VPN servers need to be maintained every once in a while to assure that they are in good working condition. Server maintenance does not really take that long so you should try connecting again in an hour or so.

If you are still unable to connect to a VPN server, contact customer support already. Inability to establish connect may be an indication of a more serious problem. In this event, let the VPN company handle the issue.

Make sure to create a ticket notifying them of any observed problem.

Performance / Connection Issues

Speed test of Internet connection

You noticed a deterioration in your connection speed. Since VPNs handle encryptions in the background (this is necessary to keep your connections private), this can often cause certain slowdowns in your internet connection. Such speed slowdowns are just minimal but there is still a way to improve your internet connection speed.

Chances are, you may simply be connected to a VPN server located on the other side of the world. Establishing such a long distance connection can drastically affect your internet speed.

What you can do is to connect to a nearby VPN server to improve your speed. Say you are currently located in Poland, you can try connecting to a server in Germany.

This should improve your VPN connection speeds. Take note though that you can never have better speeds than what your ISP has set.

Another connection-related issue involves multiple connections. Usually, VPN services allow for simultaneous connections using a single account. You can use the VPN on your laptop and on 3 more devices all at the same time.

If you are experiencing restricted connectivity from your other devices, this could have something to do with proper setup. Check your devices if they are set up correctly.

The VPN service usually provides setup tutorials on how to make the VPN work on various devices.

You can also check if the VPN does offer support for certain devices and security protocols. Check the VPN whether it supports your devices.

You may also want to check if your
firewall is blocking the VPN app. If so, remove any restrictions on the VPN connection

Account / Login Issues

Login issue typing username or password

When you try logging into you the VPN client app, you are getting an error message saying your Account is not valid. If you are having login issues, check whether you are typing in the right username or password.

If you have forgotten your password, simply click the FORGOT PASSWORD button and reset your password right away.

Now, if you have just been limited to specific VPN servers, check your account status. Your subscription might have already expired and you will have to update your account before you can enjoy the fullest extent of the VPN service.

VPN Completely Not Working

When you try logging into you the VPN client app, you are getting an error message saying your Account is not valid. If you are having login issues, check whether you are typing in the right username or password.

If you have forgotten your password, simply click the FORGOT PASSWORD button and reset your password right away.

Now, if you have just been limited to specific VPN servers, check your account status. Your subscription might have already expired and you will have to update your account before you can enjoy the fullest extent of the VPN service.
