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!"
I have been using Umbrella since beta testing, and OpenDNS for half a decade, and find both to be superior in both quality of service and level of professionalism. Umbrella has proven to time and again to be a useful, secure offering in the VPN category. In fact, it's the only one I actually trust in the entirety of the App Store. I highly recommend it.
For the tl;dr crowd: Top VPN App. OpenDNS does a great job. Download & sign up, this is quality VPN...and no, I'm in no way compensated to day that.
Any other choice is not the right choice.
I get 30Mbps on Wifi in my house and about 23Mbps on cellular data without VPN active. I'm not sure how but I get up to 45Mbps with Umbrella enable on cellular data. The highest I've gotten with any other iOS app option is 15Mbps but mostly under 5Mbps. You get more features out of this than any other app for a fraction of the cost. Everyone else is just stealing money. I seldom give reviews but OpenDNS continues to exceed my expectations.
