Webroot antivirus is the strong antivirus software which scans the internal data of your device to protect it from malware and viruses. It consumes less space in your device but improves its performance. You can install Webroot through www.webroot.com/safe. This software provides the fastest and secure service, but sometimes your device gets slow while using VPN, or Wi-Fi Security. This is because your device first connect to Webroot’s VPN servers, and then to the destination. Speed issues are because of the network congestion between your device and Webroot’s server and the congestion between Webroot’s server and the destination site. This rarely happens but sometime it is noticeable.
To improve the speed, you should switch the VPN servers you are you are currently connected to.
You should change the encryption protocol because VPN speed is sometimes impacted when you use more secure encryption protocol.
Use a wired connection because it is faster than wireless connections.
Temporarily disable Firewalls and Security Settings as this could also slow down the speed. But re-enable it again.
You should change your device as it may increase the speed.
