Security that works where you do.
Introducing the Umbrella mobile app, from OpenDNS. Umbrella protects nomadic workers, and will enable you to connect to Wi-Fi hotspots with confidence and experience safer, more reliable browsing over Wi-Fi and cellular data networks. Prevent Internet spying, eavesdropping, malicious downloads and phishing attacks on your mobile device, through cloud encrypted VPN technology delivered via the OpenDNS Global Network. Umbrella leverages OpenDNS's security technologies across Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, 4G, and LTE cellular networks, so no matter how you're accessing the Internet, you're always protected.
This application is meant to be used by registered Umbrella account holders.

Absolutely terrific! Best bang for the buck!
I've been using OpenDNS servers and other open DNS products for a couple of years now, and recently began using Umbrella on my iPhone and iPad; I couldn't be more pleased.
I've tried and used a number of other VPN's on all of my devices and machines, but none have come close to working as well as Umbrella does. It's simple, fast, and easy to install, (which I can't say for most others). Plus, so far, there is no noticeable difference in Internet speed (unlike others which invariably ground all Internet used to a complete halt, forcing me to turn them off if I wanted to access and use the Internet-what a waste of money and time.)
Umbrella does everything it's supposed to do, and doesn't screw anything up or slow anything down, at least not to where I can notice; web browsing, email, receiving automatic updates, using the App Store, whatever, are all working fine, functioning normally, maybe even a little better than normal, while I bask in relief, knowing I'm protected. I couldn't ask for more.
This is one of those times, that such a simple thing (having just easily installed Umbrella on my iPad and having everything work in under five minutes) just makes me happier than hell, which prompted me to shout out loud to the internet spirits, "Yeah!!...this is just guhreaaaat!", write this review and say to Umbrella, "I'm just thrilled...way to go! You've earned my five stars!"
Don't let this app become obsolete
I've been a OpenDNS customer for many many years. I was on the beta-test team for Umbella VPN so I've used it before day-1, ha!
Please update Umbella VPN before Apple goes to iOS 11. THANKS!
5-star rating today. Will edit this review after ios 11 comes out if your app is still in the AppStore.
Great, but annoying on iOS 9
Won't stay connected, doesn't automatically connect for local network connections - but does block them (think Apple remote, receiver remote control apps etc). I find it keeps disconnecting and forgetting to reconnect and that basically nukes all data access at that point.
Another example, Chrome won't connect to a page. Have to launch Umbrella app again, then it connects to VPN and then Chrome works again... Until it disconnects again.
Didn't seem to do this with iOS 8.
