Adding VPN is required for providing seamless access to institutional subscribed eResources. With VPN we are NOT monitoring all traffic of the app, the purpose of the VPN is to route traffic for the subscribed eResources domains securely through the MyLOFT’s servers which are specifically assigned for the subscribing Institution.

We at MyLOFT want to make sure we are transparent with our users about the need for VPN permission. You can also check the domains going through the VPN, by following the below-mentioned steps:

  • Go to the MyLOFT Settings
  • Click on Help Center
  • Click on About VPN Usage

Note: The MyLOFT VPN configuration is only active when using the MyLOFT App and it will only proxy institutional subscribed eResources domain’s via the MyLOFT App.
