Had to Uninstall


I like what this app does, I really do. But I still had to uninstall for the time being.

1) I drive for a delivery service and need to be able to use Google Maps for work. Do you know what works incredibly slowly and unresponsively when this app is running? Google Maps. I was just turning protection off and on whenever I needed (as has been mentioned by other users, a widget for that would be a MASSIVE improvement to the usability of the app), when I found problem two.

2) This morning I go to turn off protection to use Google Maps, and all of the sudden my phone is asking me for a VPN password. Repeatedly. Pressing Cancel makes the pop-up go away for maybe 30 seconds, tops. It made my phone unusable until I uninstalled the app.

Must-have app, excellent redesign


I love the new update. Cleaner look, hopefully a slightly more stable connection too as sometimes privacy mode has required me to disable and reenable occasionally when I notice the internet connection stops. The only thing I want at this point is a widget for quickly connecting and disconnecting to either mode (ideally without needing to load the app entirely if possible). Keep it up!

Developer Response

Thanks so much for the feedback! The widget is a great idea and we are looking into it.

Excellent Update


I commend the developers for listening to user feedback and making substantial enhancements to the app, app interface, and user experience. Well done. A lot more intuitive. Much better guidance and information available in this update. Very pleased. Bravo!
