In this guide, we describe how to set a wired network as 'trusted' to deactivate Autopilot and how to recognize if Autopilot is inactive on Windows. Autopilot is a convenient feature that automatically establishes and maintains an active VPN connection for enhanced security. However, there may be times when you want to disable Autopilot while connected to a specific trusted network. In this video, we'll walk you through the steps to do this and demonstrate how to check if Autopilot is inactive.
Follow the steps below to set up a wired network as 'trusted' and deactivate Autopilot:
Step 1: Click on the Autopilot icon in the bottom-right corner of the GooseVPN app, recognized by the two arrows forming a square.
Step 2: Click on "Enable."
Step 3: Autopilot is now successfully enabled. The screen will automatically return to the main app screen, and you can recognize Autopilot is active by the purple moon symbol because you have designated a network as trusted.
Step 4: Click on the "Advanced" option.
Step 5: Click on the toggle switch next to "Trust Wired Connections."
Step 6: Now, go back to the main menu of Goose. You'll see the V symbol change to a purple moon. This means that Autopilot is enabled but inactive when you connect to any of your trusted (wired) networks.
By setting a wired network as 'trusted,' you can deactivate Autopilot for that specific network. To check if Autopilot is inactive, look at the symbol on the main screen. If you see a purple moon, it means that Autopilot is not active.
