Mostly works exactly as you'd expect. One annoying issue, though - it starts every time my phone reboots, which is never what I want. The only way to close it is kill the app via system settings, otherwise it will continue to run in the background even when not connected to VPN. If they fixed that, it would be pretty much the ideal workplace VPN.

As of yesterday it's forcing me to have Chrome as my default browser or it fails to connect. On desktop it's opening two exactly same pages before finally connecting. If you decline opening the second page it just spins and never connects. The persistent notification is also a pain but not being able to use the app as I did two days ago is worse. Having to create an account in order to file a ticket is to me, just another way to get information. I would avoid this app until it's fixed.

AVOID IF POSSIBLE, most unreliable vpn I've ever used. crashes and disconnects constantly. if an error occurs then just shows a white screen and you cant even restart the app to fix it, you have to reboot the phone. also you cant change any settings, it always defaults to the worst option and you have to change it every time. what highschooler made this for their hackathon?
