Battery Saving Mode in Android will Affect VPN

Posted on June 3, 2016 @ 8:38 am

Battery saver mode was introduced on Android 5.0 Lollipop. When you enable this feature it will improve your device's battery life by reducing the performance of your device and limiting most background data.

Because it will restrict background data, most data-intensive apps wont be able to connect to the internet including DroidVPN. If you are connected using UDP you would normally see this error message on your logs

WARN: UDP sendto(): Try again (code=11)

If you need to use DroidVPN then you need to disable the battery saver mode
