Numerous tests will help you find whether the OysterVPN is working or not! First, look for icons on your dock, toolbar, menu bar, and other places. If the icon is grey, your VPN is disabled, and if it turns green or blue, then rest assured that your VPN is working.
You can also check the status of your VPN by navigating to Settings > VPN on any device. If you need more than just visual confirmation that your VPN is working properly, use one of the following methods:
The Domain Name System (DNS) functions similarly to a translator. It’s responsible for converting www.yourwebsite.com into a specific IP (Internet Protocol) number, 126.96.36.199. We can easily navigate the internet with these DNS requests. All we have to do is recall the name of a website. These queries do not go through a secure VPN tunnel if you do not use a VPN.
This could expose your address and the sender’s address to the websites you visit. All of this information will be available to your ISP as well. Here’s how you can do it:

Finally, verify whether you can access specific content libraries or geo-blocked websites and apps to see if your VPN works. A lot of content on the internet is restricted in many parts of the world due to severe licensing regulations.
