I have configured VPN settings on some of my user’s devices. But, I need to prevent this from being modified. Is there any ways to have this?

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Please navigate to Windows-> Restrictions-> Allow Network settings. You will be able to see the following option:
    Users can turn VPN on/off: Enable/Disable the users to add or remove a VPN Connection. Supported on Windows 10 PCs and mobiles.
    The option is allowed by default. Configure the option based on your requirements. Associate targets and save the policy.

    Kindly use the help link for a reference on the restrictions for Windows devices.

    Cheers!

    Dear Birdie,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. If you have opted for our Ultimate plan or higher, you configure VPN on Windows using Hexnode. Log in to your portal and head over to Policies > New Policies > Windows > Network > VPN to make use of this feature. Refer to our help doc on configuring VPN to understand this feature in detail.

    Be sure to check out Release Notes to avoid missing out on feature updates.

    Cheers!!
