How to Enable VPN Logs and Stats

By default, UTunnel enforces a no-log policy on its VPN servers. But, it allows you to enable VPN logs as tracking VPN usage is a necessity for many business use cases. By enabling the logging feature on your VPN server, you will get detailed information about the users connected to the VPN, devices used for VPN connections, live connections, VPN protocol used, connection time, disconnection time, etc. Please note that you can enable the stats and logs feature on the VPN server only if you have a Standard subscription plan.
