Disconnect Pro puts you in control of your privacy and makes your iOS experience faster, safer, and also improves battery life and reduces wasted cellular data.
Your device loads thousands of unencrypted HTTP and DNS connections everyday. These unencrypted connections allow criminals, corporations, and governments to look at any information being sent, or even change the contents of a website before it gets to you. Our SmartVPN technology gives you the power to encrypt ALL your HTTP and DNS connections.
Pro also blocks privacy invasive trackers across your entire device. These trackers violate your privacy, slow page loads, and waste your bandwidth and battery life. We NEVER store or log any traffic routed through our servers and don’t track your IP address or any other personal info, except the info you volunteer.
Our tracker protection sets a DNS in the VPN that blocks domains that track users. Our tracker protection is solely focused on consumer privacy and we have a well defined policy, which you can view here: https://disconnect.me/trackerprotection. We are not an ad blocker and never accept money for whitelisting. Our tracker protection has been integrated into Firefox, Samsung Internet, and other popular browsers and privacy focused applications. In our Pro application you have full control of which trackers are blocked or unblocked.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs a whitelisting option-otherwise perfect
Application works great, even works alongside another virtual private network (Personal VPN)FYI this is not a real VPN, does not mask who you are and only uses that profile in order to block tracking cookies but as I said I can be used along side any VPN'S that are listed under "Personal VPN" in settings-> VPN (bottom). Nothing rose like this on the app store. Been using it for over a year and its blocked 70,000 trackers and saved 6.3gb of data on my phone alone. Keeps getting better.
Recent connections in tools gone?
It seem like everything was working but now I have a blank page for recent connections in the tools that I paid for; Sorry gotta drop some stars until it is back.
Update: Dev responded with a promised update that could fix the issue; Adding back stars for being responsive and seems to be working after uninstalling and reinstalling. Maybe just a glitch.
Thanks for letting us know, this is not a bug we've encountered but we just pushed a big update with general blocking improvements that hopefully resolve this. Would be great to know! Also, maybe try uninstalling and re-installing the app?
Great Privacy Protection
I have always liked Disconnect products. Now in light of Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, I especially like this. I just wish that it was always on by default, so that I would have its protection automatically anytime I go out on the Internet with my iPhone. Whether browsing, checking email, social media, etc.
