How to see the current IP
« on: May 19, 2023, 01:14:01 PM »
In the Windows version, in order to know which IP address my VPN is using, all I need to do is to open the program and look at the main screen, under "Virtual IP".

But in the Android version, the main screen shows the same info (connection status, duration and server location) except the IP. No IP is shown. Is there a way to see that info in the Android version ?

Right, there are many websites that display the IP. But that's the IP from which that website sees the connection to be coming from, not necessarily the IP my Avast VPN is using.

I often have more than one VPN active, e.g. I might be on my own Avast SecureLine as usual and still have to login to someone else's VPN as required by them to use their services. In that case the IP shown in public IP-display websites is not necessarily the IP my Avast VPN is using.

I need to be able to do some troubleshooting and for that I need to know which IP my Avast VPN is going out with, not only the final IP through which I am reaching the connection target.

It would be much simpler if just the Android version of SecureLine showed the IP like the Windows version does, there is plenty of space.
