Setup automatic VPN connection on certain Wifi networks

Dear All

 

As a soon-to-be owner of a Z10, I am trying to have a smooth start once it arrives. How would I go about establishing an automatic VPN connection upon connecting to certain (public, non-free) Wifi's? Is this even possible?

 

The VPN connection gives me free access to these networks, but it's quite annoying to always have to manually open the VPN connection when one of them is in reach.

 

Thanks, Florian

Hi floriparate and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!

 

From Settings>Network Connections>Wi-Fi>Saved, select the saved network then add the VPN profile to setup Automatic Connection when connected to that network.

 

This article will provide more information on setting up a VPN profile on your BlackBerry Z10.
