Is That a Hot Phone in Your Pocket…or are You Just Happy to See Me?

ForestVPN keeps your device cool by using 6.5 times LESS battery than well-known competitors.

Problem of battery consumption in traditional VPN

Some of the largest legacy VPNs are known to use up a lot of battery life. This is a common complaint expressed by VPN customers using well-known VPN apps. It’s frustrating to wake up in the morning and find the battery at 29% when it was at 100% when you went to bed.

Many VPNs continue to run in the background even if the app isn’t being used.  In addition, many VPNs timeout frequently, forcing the app to authenticate and reconnect over and over again.

It’s easy to check the impact some of these energy demanding apps have on the battery.  By going into settings and checking the battery usage by app, some VPNs can consume as much as 50% of the battery.

Now that’s one hot phone!  It’s common for VPN users to complain about the temperature of their phones, especially when the phone is in your pocket. 

Aye Carramba!
