So far the setup of my new device was very easy. Some features of the app were hard to use, due to the placement of elements in the user interface. For instance, when I tried to put a device in the priority list, I couldn't save the change. The save element in the upper right corner was too close to the phone's upper bar. I went into the website and made the change there, so there is an alternative path. I wish there were more options to export logs for analysis. Nice to show nat'ed ip.

Update 3: 1/12/23 - the app was working well for a few months, but again the app is freezing, logging out, not allowing me to log in. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app... again. Love the controls when it works, but it's frustrating when it doesn't work. Furthermore, it seems to stop working at a critical time when I need the computers for work, and not being able to access the app prevents me from being able to get my work done.

Terrible experience. Every time I connect I have to change my password because they updated their terms. I've had to replace this device twice in the past 3 years,so it's not just the app. I cannot connect to my router because of the constant password changes and I cannot connect through wifi because it's not connected, the point of logging on kn the first place. It's a catch 22 and pointless. Do your mental health a favor and your wallet to 6, don't choose this company.
