If the VPN isn't connected, you should get some sort of notification. A screen pop-up that won't go away until you connect would be great. Not to mention I had always on VPN enabled, and then it wasn't, so I'm going to assume an update disabled it >:( It would be better to enable Always on VPN in an update, than to turn it off.

So far has been solid for me, the connection speed is both impressively high and is also stable which is great, the design of the app is also yet another thing which i applause it for, 0 UI bugs, loving the shortcut for the control centre, loving the stealth protocol and everything else, i just wish that it was easier to connect to servers, don't get me wrong it's not the worst, some VPNs don't even connect whilst this does, but it is slow and you often have to switch servers if it doesn't co...

It's actually an amazing VPN, but after clearing all app preferences and cached data, it disconnected from the VPN. Now it is not allowing me to Grant access to the VPN, the window thats supposed to pop up never does and I can't click 'ok' to allow it access. Now I just can't use it. I checked permissions but it said that this app don't ask for any permissions, I'm not sure what to do to fix this issue. I would really like to fix this raiting and continually use the app, any help is useful.
