VPN closes WiFi and forces data use
I downloaded Mobile Security a couple of months ago at the recommendation of AT&T. I’m a U-Verse TV and Internet Fiber customer also. Anyway, I started getting notifications from AT&T that I was about to exceed my 5GB plan when I had never came close to using 3GB in the past. As a precaution I switched to the Unlimited Plan. Then I noticed that my phone was sporadically connecting to WiFi. After being transferred from one CSR to a technician who could actually help me, she asked if I had any software that has a battery saver. I don’t. We did a Network Reset. While rebooting I starting seeing “VPN” messages. The lightbulb in my head went on then. After multiple attempts to turn off the VPN settings in Mobile Security and restarting my phone my only solution was to delete the application and restart. Since then I have never lost my WiFi signal.
My huge concern is that why does AT&T promote software that disconnects from their own routers on their own internet system and force cell phone data? Start the conspiracy theories.

Shoddy quality, rapes the battery!
UPDATE: even after banning the app from background processing, it CONTINUED TO USE BACKGROUND PROCESSING, quite possibly in violation of Apple policy! Today, it took up a WHOOPING 27% of the battery drain as a top-wasting process on the iPhone! I have just finished deleting it and I'm writing this so other people don't end up scammed by this trash.
This app is a cool idea but it's of poor quality. The app was literally going berserk in Walmart after I connected to the WiFi. It would fail to connect/establish VPN connection and exit by claiming WiFi was "secure". What a joke, Walmart WiFi doesn't even have a password! And the latest outrage is that it was raping my battery! Besides ALL apps I actually use, this is the one I NEVER open, it is supposed to work in background. With that, it was the SECOND LARGEST battery drain on my iPhone‼️ Of course, now it is banned from background processing! If the battery raping continues, OFF IT GOES, ALONG WITH THE SUBSCRIPTION! What a TRASH!

At AT&T ‘s request 😣
I loaded the Security app and my iPhone started being strange - couldn’t go from Safari to Mail, just got a back signal which I couldn’t click on as it would appear only when I clicked on Mail button at top then it would disappear. Went through a Chat with agent and I was told to do a Reset. I went through General Settings, clicked on the Reset and got the warning it would put my iPhone back to Factory and I’d lose all my apps, messages, Mail, etc. During the Chat I raised my concerns, first I was told to not Reset and the very next message was told to Reset. Needless to say, I left the Chat and removed the Security App. My iPhone now works like it did and I can now go from one app to another easily, like it is SUPPOSED TO WORK!!! Very disappointed that AT&T programmers apparently did not check the app out before sending to their consumers!!! 😣☹️😐😒
