How to confirm performance with a screenshot

After completing the task, do not forget to take a screenshot. Go to the IPweb Surf Android app, and tap the red menu button. Choose a convenient option for submitting a screenshot:

Link button

If you took a screenshot via a third-party app and uploaded the screenshot to a file sharing/image hosting service — click on the "Link" button, you can enter the link to the uploaded screenshot.

Gallery button

If you took a screenshot using the standard app on your smartphone — click on the "Gallery" button and you select the saved image.

Screenshot button

Click on the "Screenshot" button for an instant screenshot. This way the app takes the screenshot and you do not need to user any outer apps to take a screenshot, enter a link or submit image from the gallery

When contacting the support service about a particular issue, you may often need to take a screenshot of the problem or record a screencast (i.e., a video where you perform actions that lead to the problem).

This is much more convenient and effective than trying to describe in words the actions that lead to the problem. Therefore, if you do this in advance when contacting support, your problem will be resolved much faster.

We strongly recommend that you do not crop the screenshot or screencast parts of the screen where you can see the page addresses (related to the issue you will contact support with), as well as your IPweb username. This information can be extremely useful in resolving the issue.
